We just stayed one night before heading home. When we pulled up are first inclination was to cancel our reservation but decided to give a go.The rooms are basic but very clean. The staff was very friendly. It is situated on the river. The evening was fun sitting at the bar and listening to the howler monkeys. In the morning...

Although we had initial difficulty locating the resort, it offered easy access to the airport and Belize City while providing a very natural setting (howling monkeys included). Our room was large with a high ceiling and a strong emphasis on woodwork. Small porch offered view of the river. Clean and comfortable. Dining services and complimentary continental breakfast. Gift shop. Owner...

Our room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The pool area is beautiful, with great views of the Belize River. The bar and restaurant are both lovely, with great staff and great food. The Black Orchid is highly recommended if you are staying in Belize!

We stayed here as part of a package to visit Mayan cities nearby. Located abt 1/2hr from Belize City airport, this facility is an outstanding tourist hub for this area. Large, high-ceiling rooms with big (Cal-king) beds, a nice pool area, cool bar and nice restaurant serving a great continental bk as well as Belize favorites for lunch and dinners....

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay at the Black Orchid Resort for our whirlwind trip to Belize. I’m so glad we did! The sweet folks at the BOR handled everything for us; from picking us up at the airport to arranging and taking us to the best tours imaginable. The resort is located in...

This is the second time spent at the Black Orchid Resort, and I should have known better than to expect improvements for my first visit. The location was ideal for where I needed to be and due to the lack of other establishments I was left with no choice but to return. The resort is situated in the banks of...

The room was clean, wonderful A/C and had plenty of room for two people. That added touch of the flower petals on the bed made me laugh and remind me I was still on vacation even though it was our last day. We were headed out the next day early and wanted to be close to the airport, but not...

Grounds were very nice. Some rooms had beautiful wood carvings in the doors. Bed had flower petals sprinkled on it upon arrival. Most importantly for us, visiting in September, the room was the AC. It’s pret. We had the place to ourselves and the staff was nice. Would definitely stay there again.

The Black Orchid was a great place for us to relax and wind down the end of our trip. It was the first time we had air conditioning and a pool. Our room was large, clean, and had comfy beds. The view from our room was beautiful over looking the grounds and river. The pool was great for relaxing, not...

This is a classic airport hotel, small rooms without any charm. The pool and restaurant are in bad shape and the breakfast consists of a few slices of toast, fruit and coffee. This would be ok for say USD 50, but we paid $150 for our tiny room.. go somewhere else if you can.

This review baffles me as it does not reflect what we have here. Our rooms are not small and we offer a full American or Belizean breakfast in addition to the limited free buffet which is available to guests who do not desire a full breakfast. As u perhaps know we were recovering from Hurrycane Earl and was in the...
