We had a great experience. The staff was very accommodating. We asked of they offered a ride to the community baboon sanctuary and they set it up for us - even on short notice. They were attentive to our needs, and would help us as soon as we made a request. The food was delicious, and the grounds were nice. We loved hearing the Black Howler Monkeys I'm the distance from our room.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very beautiful property and rooms overlooking flower abundant garden areas and/or river. Rooms spacious and very clean. Staff always smiling, pleasant, accommodating (we were almost out of gas and they offered to get us some). Food very good. Some transplanted orchid plants, many other flowering plants. Butterflies, birds, even a howler monkey! No negatives.

We were the last guests here prior to closing due to COVID-19. The staff were great during this difficult time and they stayed open to honor our 1 night reservation. We were en route home to Canada. The staff provided transportation to and from the airport and kept the restaurant running to provide meals. Nice property on the river. The only downside, we got a number of bites while outside in the evening.

Excellent service
Black Orchid was an unplanned stay after a hectic travel day. Everything about this resort was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and if we find ourselves in Belize City again we would not hesitate to book here first.
