By BBN Staff: Black Orchid Resort, located in Burrell Boom Village, Belize District has added to an extensive collection of awards by becoming a 2020 TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Award Winner.

The prestigious award puts Black Orchid Resort in the top 10 percent of hotels in the world according to guest reviews.

Owner Douglas Thompson notes that the resort celebrated its 15th anniversary this year and has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor every year since it opened. Thompson said that after five consecutive years of winning a Certificate of Excellence, resorts are awarded a TripAdvisor Hall of Fame Award, which Black Orchid Resort has received twice, before now receiving the Traveler’s Choice Award.

“It’s a really coveted award for any hotel. It really reflects on how our clients view us, the feedback that Tripadvisor gets from our guests. We are extremely grateful to have this and of course the credit mostly goes to our staff. We’re a small, family-owned hotel so where we really compete is in the area of service,” Thompson said.

He added that while the resort is striving to achieve the Gold Standard certification from the Belize Tourism Board, Black Orchid is in no rush to re-open for international tourists and continues to serve local travelers and hosting events within the scope of what is allowed.

Black Orchid Resort finds its niche in presenting an authentic Belizean experience through the atmosphere and food with its biggest asset being the service that comes from its all-Belizean staff.
