We have visited Belize in the past. This time we wanted to stay on the mainland for a couple of days before going to Ambergris Caye. We could not have a chosen a more perfect spot. The resort had a driver ready to pick us up at the airport on our arrival in Belize City. We arrived at the resort...

We had spent a couple weeks in Placencia and wanted a place close to the airport for our departure home. Black Orchid was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice location and easy to find. We will most likely stay here again when we visit Belize.

We stayed at Black Orchid on the last night of our trip to Belize. The room was large, comfortable, and Air Conditioned which was a treat. It was more expensive than most of the other places we saw, but chose it because of its proximity to the airport as well as free rides to and from. When we got to...

We loved how quiet it was compared to the traffic in Belize City. Thank you for the unexpected upgrade to a River View room.

Stayed here the night before our flight home. Staff were quite nice and helpful. Beds very hard, pool small, rooms and food basic. It was fine, and a nice location in the jungle area, but wouldn't want to stay more than a night.

We spent one night here before an early morning flight and we are so glad we did. The howler monkeys were in the trees having a good time when we arrived- a fun sight to see and hear. We didn't go swimming, but the pool was a nice option. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. We...

We had a great time in a lovely second floor room that looked out on the river. The food and service was excellent. I wished we had more time to take the canoe out in the river. I would stay there again.
