Fodor's Review

This Belizean-owned resort in a pleasant and safe rural setting northwest of Belize City perches at the edge of the Belize River, where you can launch a canoe or kayak from the hotel's dock, or just laze about the riverside swimming pool and thatch palapa. The air-conditioned rooms (from around BZ$280, double in-season, plus tax) are large, with custom-made mahogany furnishings. The on-site restaurant serves good Belizean food (dinner around BZ$36).

Fun in the Sun!

We love the Black Orchid Resort. We have stayed there 3 times in the last 3 years. They provide a pleasant spot to relax prior to returning to the USA after a month or two in Belize. We enjoy hearing the howler monkeys in the trees near by. They provide a pleasant room and good food at a reasonible price. They also provide a shuttle to the airport to catch flight home. We would highly recommend this resort for a nice respite before returning to

the rat race at home.
