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...

We were warmly welcomed by the owner as we drove on to the property, he then escorted us to the check in desk where we got our room keys and a basic introduction of the staff whom we all learned to be very helpful. Inside the room was quite clean and comfortable and it had a breath taking view of...

Many travelers to Belize want to stay near the airport the night before they leave...in case the bus breaks down, or the boat doesn't show up. We've been scouting the area for a while and found Black Orchid Resort. What a find! Tucked along the Belize river, only 20 minutes from the airport, there is no other hotel or B&B...

This was our first visit to Belize and we stayed at The Black Orchid Resort for a total of 7 nights. Being more of a city gal, I was a little leery at first because the resort is away from the city, on a river in a jungle setting. I have to say, it was one of the best experiences...

I picked the Black Orchid based on the pictures provided by trip advisor .It did not disappoint. What I did not know was what the staff would be like. They were the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness. They met our every need with efficiency and a warm smile. I want to pay a special compliment to Caesar who took...

This was our most fun and adventurous vacation this year.The Black Orchid resort should not be missed for several reasons.The staff goes way beyond what you would normally expect to insure that you have a great time. For example my sister and I decided we wanted to go fishing despite the fact that we are city girls. They not only...

although hotels are overall pricey in Belize for the standards you get versus the US or Europe, the Black Orchid was a nice surprise. The owners are super nice and service oriented; we were on a late boat trip and were starving - he called the restaurant from the boat on his mobile so that we can have something ready...

We came to the Black Orchid after staying at Kaana resort. 2 adults and 2 kids – disappointed after a magical stay in Guatemala. What a pleasant surprise. Finally, a place in Belize that tourism has not spoiled. Finally, no more policies and how best to make money. But rather, how to make your stay enjoyable and fun. The grounds...

My wife and I recently visited our Homeland Belize for the second time in the past three months.During both trips we spent time at the Black Orchid Resort in Boom.

We regret that we only stayed one night at this lovely place! We booked this for our last night in Belize to be close to the airport without being in the city. We are so happy we did. The morning we were taken to the airport we enjoyed waking up to the sound of howler monkeys, went for a great...
