Default Help IDing epiphytic orchid in Jamaica

I just got back from a vacation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and my resort had this one type of orchid growing on tree trunks all over the place. I think it's some type of Dendrobiumócan anyone help me identify it?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like a Broughtonia sanguinea or one of its hybrids but more than likely it is the species as it's native to Jamaica.

Looks like you nailed it, Judi! I've never even heard of this species before. No wonder I couldn't tell what it was.

Thank you!
