4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Three nights in this laid back, lovely environment, first time out of North America for one of us. The staff asked how things were going on a regular basis, and were always happy to provide anything we needed. We enjoyed chatting with each staff member, and hearing about their varied life experiences. They were all knowledgeable about local attractions and able to give detailed recommendations on places to visit, and what to wear. Front office staff organized each outing with a smile. Good variety of menu items for all ages, realistic portions, family friendly, small bar, formal dining room or screened in porch overlooking river. Continental breakfast replenished with a cheerful "good morning everyone!", served in in screened in cabana, or la carte from menu in restaurant. Surprise New Year's Eve buffet in cabana a nice touch including local cuisine like fried plantain, black cake and jerk chicken. Very clean, enjoyed the small pool, decent sized basic room in older building,(room safes may be available in newer buildings). Overnight guest service still prompt and cheerful while cruise ship guests on premises. Thanks to all including Lance, Ryan, Kurt and Beverly.

Welcoming service and overall a good hotel Rooms are spartan decoration but beds comfortable. Nice pool and large dining room with a small but nice bar. Well located outside Belize so you avoid city traffic on the way to many local attractions.

Recently traveled with a group of 20 people for a school trip to Belize to do medical work, and touristy things as well. Our stay at the Black Orchid was perfect. It was so relaxing to come back to the resort at night. The food was delicious, and they were very accommodating for such a large group. I would come back here again for sure!

Very basic. Pool a bit murky. Restaurant adequate. The owner was very attentive. You have to remember, you're not in Kansas anymore. I've stayed in much worse hotels in the US, but this is decidedly not the ritz. Room was clean.

Room Tip: They just added an addition which looked very nice.

Actually found out about the Black Orchid Resort through TripAdvisor! Traveled at the end of the rainy season, or so I thought, as it rained three of the four days I was there. Had the Honeymoon suite all to myself with a great view of the Belize River. Best vacation ever staying in the jungles, and watching the howler monkeys, iguanas and lizards abound. Try the snapper filet for dinner, it melts in your mouth. So glad to have discovered this place and will be
back. P.S. There may be a geocache published here soon!

Room Tip: Get the honeymoon suite with the chaise lounge chairs on the porch.

I have never written a review before but I have to for this resort. I stayed here for a weekend getaway close to the airport. The resort was beautiful, secluded and breathtaking. The staff was wonderful and the owners just amazing in their hospitality. This was my fourth time in Belize and we loved staying at Black Orchid Resort. The food was fresh and well cooked. we loved all the wonderful choices and did not have a bad meal or service. We did not want to eat anywhere else and actually returned to the resort after checking out to eat at the restaurant when we had extra time before our flights. The room was wonderful and clean, we could walk on the floors barefoot and feel comfortable. Additionally a spa and fitness area are being added and will complete an already amazing experience. We will be back soon as this provides us with a great place to relax and enjoy our time together.

The resort was clean, comfortable and very relaxing. The staff were friendly, helpful and authentic. Meals were great.They arranged tours for us and we were impressed with the howler monkey sanctuary, Belize Zoo, cave tubing and Lamanai. Ryan was an excellent guide. We definitely recommend him. We were underwhelmed by the Rum tour. We expected someone from the rum factory to tell us the history. Instead Kance, our driver told us we didn't have time so take a look around. We felt a little jipped by this. Other than that we would have given Black Orchid a five star rating for the money we paid.
