Oscar & Ian took great care of us in the restaurant. The food was delicious, Chef J can definitely cook! I...

Thank you for joining us at Blackbird Caye and we’re so happy to her you loved it! I think now that you’ve been snorkeling you’ll be hooked!

I loved staying here so much in February 2016 that I'm returning in February 2017. Blackbird's peace, quiet and seclusion are wonderful. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. And the snorkeling is spectacular - like being in a Jacques Cousteau movie - wow!

When looking for a place for our family to have a dive getaway in Belize I despaired of finding a place: there were plenty of negative reviews at each of the places (including Blackbird) that I was researching. After a great stay at Blackbird I understand some of the reasons for the negative feedback, and believe that they largely reflect...

Thank you for your very detailed review – we appreciate the time and effort you put into it. Any resort has its own set of attributes and those attributes either align with a traveler's desires, or they do not. And a resort has the duty to support and be proud of those attributes, and understand they are not all things...

My wife and I stayed here as part of a scuba package. We enjoyed our time here very much. MANAGEMENT: The owners don't seem to take part in much of the day-to-day operations. The managers, however, are a delightful South African couple who are incredibly accommodating and are willing to do anything to make your stay. FOOD: Oh sweet Jesus...

Well thank you for the belly laugh at your description of our food – clearly our chef made an impression and received two thumbs up from you! We do think the diving here and nearby is exquisite and we appreciate your assessment. Your comments regarding mosquito nets are well received. We certainly hope we will see you here again.

Great resort off the coast of Belize -- about a 90-minute boat ride from Belize City. The kind of place where you take your shoes off when you get there and put them back on when you are about to leave. Excellent diving, I am told -- I was a snorkeler, and that was very good. Lots of time to...

We’re very happy to hear from a non-diver. While our world class diving is our stock and trade, there is so much to see and do on our small island, even if that is simply relaxing and rejuvenating. The snorkeling is colorful and convenient, and the proximity couldn’t be better. We’ll look forward to you visiting us again, shoes or...

Our group can't say enough about this resort! The staff, accommodations, and diving are terrific. The local diving is great and the excursion to Half Moon Caye well worth the trip. But it is the people of Blackbird Caye that make the biggest difference. You GOTTA go and see for yourself!

This is an ideal spot for getting away from whatever you need to get away from. The dive operation is well-run, professional, and protective of their reefs (watch your fins!), which I like to see. Reefs are healthy with abundant fish life--we identified over 50 species a dive, usually. Brandon, Bernie and their staff work hard to make your stay...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blackbird Caye is a privately owned Island sitting on The Mesoamerican Reef System - often referred to as the "Jewel of the Caribbean" - it is the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere with a rich tapestry of vivid corals, mangrove forests, coastal wetlands, and diverse marine wildlife. Within the reef you will find Turneffe Atoll the Caye where the resort is located. Turneffe is the largest and most biologically diverse of the 3 atolls found in the Caribbean home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, and more than 500 species of fish, manatees, dolphins and invertebrates. There are over 70 dives sites all within 10-15 minutes from the resort and 45 minutes to Lighthouse Reef where The Great Blue Hole is located. The resort is made of 19 modern cabanas facing the Caribbean Sea and 1 beach house. The cabanas are all equipped with A/C, fans, private bathrooms, either King or Queen Beds with new comfortable bedding, private porches with chairs and swinging hammocks. Included in the price are your cabana, 3 daily meals, dive or snorkel package, complimentary transfers to the island on Wednesdays and Saturdays and use of the resort's kayaks. We are the only resort on Turneffe with an air strip making it convenient to arrive or depart any other day of the week. Our courteous and helpful staff will always make you feel at home as customer service ... more   less
