On our return from beaches in Placencia, we spent one night at thiw jungly eco resort only 15 minutes from main airport in Bellize. It was quiet, airconditioned (which was a relief after the head and mosquitoss on the coast). The setting is lovely and has a very welcoming and local feel to it. Would go back and take advantage...

The Black Orchid is the perfect place to stay for a night or two heading in or out of Belize City. It is close, but not too close to the airport, with friendly staff running the shuttle service. The grounds are pretty, with blooming orchids, some shy orange iguanas, and a lovely pool. I loved my room in the new...

I was only there one night for work, and I got to stay in the new building. It was a great place to stay outside of Belize City. I did one tour, the cave tubing and the tour guide was fantastic. They picked me up at the airport with less than 24 hours notice. I can't speak about the buildings...

The Black Orchid Resort is a wonderful hotel located on the Belize River, just a few minutes away from the Belize International Airport. It's a wonderful place to kick off or end your Belizean adventure. Even with its proximity to the airport, 9 miles away, you still fell like you're experiencing the wilderness of Belize. 4 foot iguanas, fast running...

My group and I had initially meant to spent 1 night here, however due to the length of time spent at the Lamanai ruins we wouldn't have been able to make the last water taxi. Even though this was the case the driver was willing to make the trip- which we ultimately decided against. We stayed a second night at...

My wife stayed here when she first arrived in Belize while waiting for her parents to arrive a day later. The manager was able to pick her up at the airport which was unexpectedly easy ( no charge).

My husband & I recently stayed 4 nights at Black Orchid and, while our room was exceptional (stayed in one of brand new buildings - highly recommend new building), the service left a lot to be desired. It was, however, good on our last day there (we had Jose as our waiter and he was awesome). Most of the time,...

We spent the afternoon here because our flight didn't leave until later in the day. It was very pleasant. The service was gracious. I got a massage (nice, reasonably priced) while my husband had a few Belikins by the pool. After we ate lunch, they drove us to the airport and helped us with our bags. Our day service was...
