The "boom" in Burrell Boom is derived from the growth of the logging industry that shaped the area during the 1700s. Experience an environment where locals coexist with their unspoiled natural surroundings. The village is known for an assortment of fruit wines and preserves all made from organic ingredients. The sheer beauty of this untouched locale is experienced during sunrise and sunset. As dawn breaks, the sun peaks over the horizon with a glow of warm hues of orange, red, and yellow, announcing the beginning of a brand new day. As evening approaches, the air is filled with a cool breeze spreading the sweet aroma of fresh fruit, as the sounds of crickets chirping in the background combine with the melodious songs of local birds.

We arrived in Belize and stayed at Black Orchid only one night. The resort's free transport to and from the airport was convenient, timely and the driver was both helpful and friendly. Once at the resort, the staff was excellent, the rooms were nice and the entire experience was a perfect introduction to Belize. The resort is located in a beautiful, rural (not necessarily jungle) location and we took advantage of the free canoes. Once on the water, we spotted Howler monkeys 3 minutes from t... Read more

This was our second visit to the Black Orchid. Our last visit was in May of 2013. We were amazed at the changes and upgrades they had made. It was like a whole new place. The new rooms are fantastic, very large and clean. The beds are comfortable. We stayed in a room on the second floor with a porch overlooking the river. I have to say that I was mostly impressed with the artwork, the carving made on each of the wooden doors they were all beautiful. The air conditioning worked well and t... Read more

The Black Orchid Resort is a nice place to stay near Belize City. I honestly do not think there are any better hotels near Belize City and the airport. We stayed here for two nights before we were flying back to the US, and it was fine. First, I will say the staff is great, and they deserve five stars. Everyone was always friendly, polite, and professional. A driver drove us back into Belize City and gave us a tour stopping at some of the landmarks including the rainbow Belize sign. He did not h...

My husband and I were picked up at the water taxi by the driver who was very nice and indulged our curious nature. Once we got to the resort we were pleasantly surprised by a breathtaking room overlooking thee Belize River. Our bed was covered in rose petals that framed a towel duck. We made our way to the bar the be greeted with a complimentary rum punch and a bartender, Shammy, who was no only delightful during our stay, but we now are email buddies and I feel like I left family when I ca...

I was advised that a shuttle would be waiting for us upon arrival at the airport. I walked out of baggage claims and they were waiting. We were swiftly taken to the resort. We got checked in and were personally walked to the room and shown the property. There were flower petals on the bed and a great view as well. The salt water swimming pool was so relaxing. We enjoyed our complimentary fruit punch drinks at the bar with bartender Sham. Belizian rum was one of the ingredients which made i... Read more

This is a great place to end your trip! Beautiful and peaceful riverside setting with complimentary canoes and guide services available. We had a riverfront room, it was grand. Huge king size bed strewn with flower petals and fantastic linens and mattress. Restaurant was good but seemed a little pricey, staff was terrific friendly and accommodating. If you want a night of affordable luxury after roughing it for a while this is a great option. Free shuttle to the airport,

Stayed at the Black Orchid with my wife and two daughters at the end of May, 2016. We booked two rooms for three nights and signed up for several tours. We chose to stay here before spending some time in San Pedro (Ambergris Caye). The rooms were clean, the air conditioning was cold, and the beds were comfortable. The balconies had two chairs each and were a great way to enjoy coffee in the morning (free coffee in the room). The showers had good water pressure and the towels were clean. Eac... Read more

My families stay was exceptional. The staff was extremely kind and helpful.. Not to mention the Black Orchid was a beautiful place to stay. It is on a river, has a pool, restaurants.. Which I thought was pricey but great! I would definitely stay again!

Staff was wonderful. I would go back. Odd thing to remember: The beds were firm and comfortable. One caution: very nice included continental breakfast but I only noticed others were having a more substantial breakfast--it is costly to add eggs (for example) but worth it.

My friends money was stolen the first day out of the room. The rooms were very basic . The air conditioning didn't work well. The pool was extremely small. The staff were fairly nice. You also must check in and check out towels if you wish to use theirs when swimming which is quite a pain. They also rarely filled our fridge with new water, when they were supposed to supply one new bottle per person per day. I would much rather stay at another establishment next time when I return to Belize. Don'... Read more

To get started, in my personal opinion, the working staff (Housekeepers) can be known as thieves. My fellow peer was robbed of $200 out of his suitcase along with my leader being robbed of a whole bag of expensive make-up materials. Already being upset about the taking of precious items from my peers, they provided us with hardly no water in the viscous heat of Belize causing a high chance a dehydration or heat stroke. Although there are many bad features I am putting forth, the bartender can wh... Read more

Dryane took realy great care of our reservation every single detail was taken care of. Bev the manager was also accommodating and Mrs. Karen, the owner made us feel like Family. Mr. Doug, the owner is a Belizean Denzel Washington. This place is like a second home to us. I truly enjoyed everything. We were only there for 1 night but everything was perfect... then we had to head back home. I will return soon.

With an 8 am return flight to LAX, I chose the Black Orchid Resort for our last night in Belize because of its proximity to the airport. I wasn't expecting much, and I wouldn't pay for a riverfront room. But when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the resort's tropical, rustic charm. After checking in, Omar escorted us to a second floor room overlooking the peaceful Belize river. The room had double beds, the white duvets strewn with the every present reddish-orange flower petals.... Read more

I've stayed at this hotel twice. First, I love Belize. I enjoy staying in Boom because the people are so friendly, easy access to the city, and 15 mins or less to the airport. I enjoy spending time in Caye Caulker, but I don't always like staying in the Cayes, so this gives me easy access and options. I've stayed at Black Orchard when it was low season and the beginning of high season. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay during low season. It was my escape for the hustle and bustle of home and wor...

We stayed in June for 1 night before flying out of Belize at the Black Orchid. It is only about 15 to 20 minutes from the airport and a great way to avoid Belize City. We were very pleasantly surprised, especially after reading a couple of negative reviews. The property is clearly not new, but is well kept with large rooms, balconies, privacy and good amenities. The grounds are excellent, restaurant and bar were great. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The gift shop was closed but ... Read more

Last week we traveled with a group of 47 people to Black Orchid Resort. The resort has nice accommodations and was very clean. All the staff are helpful and fully engaged in your pleasant experience in Belize. If you are looking for a safe, clean, and pleasant experience in Belize, then look no further. We have stayed here for several years and our groups are always complimentary. The food is wonderful.
