My boyfriend and I stayed at Orchid Garden during our trip to Belize. As soon as we stepped off of the plane, Alfredo was there to take our bags and drive us back to the hotel. Christine and her staff immediately made us feel welcome and gave us a tour of the grounds. The location is quiet and serene, filled with all kinds of plants and wildlife. The rooms are private, spacious, and very clean. We even had a gecko friend spend the night with us on occasion :-) In regard to security, we felt 100% safe during our entire stay.
The main reason that we decided to stay at Orchid Garden is because of their vegetarian/vegan vacation package. I must say, the food was amazing and we never went hungry, that's for sure. It was also nice staying in a hotel that is gentle on the earth and respectful of the animals and critters that roam the grounds. All of our trips and transportation were coordinated in advance by Orchid Garden, down to every last detail. This allowed us to focus on having fun and really experiencing all that Belize has to offer. Alfredo, our driver and tour guide, was very interesting and knowledgeable. Even though we only stayed in Belize for one week, we learned so much about the history and culture of Belize.
