I was actually surprised to find such a nice hotel in Burrell Boom. Nice clean rooms, hot showers, nice pool, bar and restaurant. It's right on the Belize River and just off the highway so extremely conveniently located. You can hit a number of local attractions from this place as well as canoe the river from the back door. I...

I just returned from Belize with a school group (high school). I can't say enough good things about the staff and the resort. The staff went out of their way to make the stay comfortable and even made breakfast for our group at 5:30am before we left for the airport. The rooms are clean and have added thoughtful features such...

I was very satisfied with my stay at Black Orchid. I was vacationing in Belize for my 40th birthday and was warmly welcomed by all of staff and even found a "happy birthday" message spelled out on my bed in flower petals upon my arrival and for my actual birthday. The resort itself is lovely and has a nice laidback,...

This was a treat. With only a one night layover between resorts and the flight back to the states we didn't expect such a great experience. The people were very friendly, including the front office, the bar tender and the waitresses. The room was large and clean with an in-room WiFi router for high-speed connectivity. It had a good safe...

Rooms were very nice, service was great, food was good, nice pool, great river view. I like to take a run in the AM and this place was much nicer than the normal "city" hotel, I was able to run in the country side, experiencing the local rural scenes - it was great!

The resort is about 45 minutes outside Belize City and offers a free airport shuttle which is a nice add-on. It is a wonderful destination to visit. The rooms are big and clean and the staff very helpful. The food is very good but way too expensive for the quality. The evening wait staff are excellent and caring and helpful,...
