“Last year on our family vacation, we were looking for a nice hotel near Belize City so that it would be easier to get around to all the places we wanted to go. The Black Orchid resort was simply gorgeous and a great place to relax and unwind after the flight. Best of all, it was so close to all the places like Ambergris and Maya ruins that we visited, so we had more time to enjoy ourselves. I really like the Belize River, which the resort is right on the banks of, and nature in Belize is really spectacular.”
