The Black Orchid Resort was a perfect location outside the city to begin our exploration of Belize. However, it was a big disappointment. The prices are high for accommodations but outrageous for what you get for dining. I would NOT eat anything other than the continental breakfast here. The staff is friendly and supportive like everywhere in Belize but that...

This is a great resort in a great location! It is very close to the international airport, which makes it a great place to start or end a vacation. The staff is second to none. They were all very helpful, welcoming, knowledgeable, and hospitable. Other reviewers are correct that the resort and food is somewhat simple. But it is a...

The black orchid resorts new building (Thomson) is a great building with great rooms and the most comfortable bed we had in Belize on our 11 day adventure. Everyone here from the drivers, bartender, chef are fantastic. They have a new chef and the food was amazing, except the continental breakfast they need to work on that. While the food...

Stayed two nights. Rooms are average in amenities. Staff was nice. The grounds are nice, but not spectacular. Food was average; in particular the breakfast offered is quite plain. Very clean. Near to several sites in Belieze.

This resort is very convenient to the Belize City airport and also close to many day trips and sights. We stayed for two nights upon arrival and two nights prior to departure. We had a rental vehicle. The resort is easy to find. We enjoyed the food and drinks, both were excellent! Omar, the bartender/waiter was very helpful with his...

This place is convenient coming in or out of Belize. The staff is friendly, but our room was not very clean and it was a little smelly. The breakfast was the worse we had in Belize, just muffins and fruit. The dinners were expensive, but you are a captive audience if you don't have a car. The prices turned put...

My family and I chose to spend my father's 70th birthday (which was on Christmas Day!) in Belize. It was our first time in the country and had plans to travel to Ambergris Caye for the last part of our trio so we were looking for a resort close to Belize City but not in it, and a resort that...

This is a very good place to have a relaxing time. The accommodations were roomy for one person. The scenery was very pleasant and had a rustic feel.

My evaluation rate is the result of the average between two factors. On one hand the environment and the location, which are very good. Black Orchid is located in a beautiful natural setting, which is perfect for a stay prior to a flight or as a gateway for trips. They offer complementary kayaks (to paddle the river) and free transfer to...
