I had great expectations for my stay at the Black Orchid Resort given the previous reviews however, only hours after arriving we lost water access (which continued to happen frequently during my entire stay). When we did have water, regardless of the time of day, there rarely was any hot water. The food and service seemed great initially but steadily...

Considering that this resort is in the middle of nowhere it exceeds expectations for comfort and amenities provided. We were lucky enough to stay in the new building, which has rooms with far nicer finishings than I ever thought I'd see in Belize. They had a hottub by the river and a small pool on the rooftop yet neither was...

We stayed here only one night on our way back to the States. This was our first (and definitely not last) trip to Belize. We stayed on San Pedro for 5 days so we thought it would be easier to stay closer to the airport the day before we went home. We flew into the municipal airport from San Pedro...

A great place to start or end a trip with a very convenient location for the Belize City Airport. Don't just stay for one night as there is so much of interest to see and do in the area. The resort offers many trips - not the cheapest but very personal service with knowledgeable guides - we took the trip...

This is a decent place to stay if you need a hotel near the airport for a night. We had a terrific dinner at the restaurant and the service was great, the wait staff really nice. All the hotel staff were nice and helpful. The rooms are adequate, clean but a little out dated. The pool and grounds are also...

We were here in Sept. 2014 for our Honeymoon. In order to ease our arrival from the U.S. we decided to start our vacation by staying at Black Orchid Resort because they picked us up from the airport! It was a fun way to kick-off our trip. Steven, our driver, was fun, helpful and knowledgeable from the get-go and we...

we staid here for one night to visit the temples of lamanai, after a long flight we were made very welcome here, nice area next to river with iguanas in the garden and monkeys in the trees. Very comfortable room with excellent bed. Good food in the restaurant and very friendly people. Would definitely recommend.

The rooms are rustic pretty and clean. Restaurant food is good and there is a reasonable variety, service is very good but prices are a little steep for a restaurant of this type. Staying at this resort, there are no other options for meals. There is a small refrigerator so bring food with you. Pool is the only activity on...

This hotel is pretty awsome, the rooms are elegant in the island way: great porch, wonderful decorating touches, fine location on the Belize River. The restaurant is something else though. Though the service is pretty good, in the "I want to please you" sense, the food is not good. I had driven from Chetumal and didn't get a chance to...

Thank you for your review of my resort which I personally take very seriously. My delay in response to this review is a result of my traveling and having the need to discuss with the folks on duty what actually happened as I know that all the seafood in the restaurant are fresh. This time of year is no exception....

We stayed there for 11 days. I choose them because of their rating and location. Soon as we got through customs, they were waiting for us. Loaded are bags and headed to the resort. On the way to resort the driver asked if we need to stop at a local store, we did. Arrived at the resort and was meant...
