Spent a week at this resort last month and couldn't have had a better time. The diving was incredible and the friendly staff became like family. It was a treat to see them again each morning at the delicious breakfast buffet. In fact, all the meals served here were wonderful. It was my birthday while we were there and the...

Thank you for the very enthusiastic TripAdvisor review – we really appreciate it! We’re an intimate resort, so we treat our guests like family. We too miss it when you leave and look forward to your return. That’s what making someone a birthday cake is a meaningful gesture – because it’s authentic. We love to have a good time, but...

First I will start with some good stuff. Most of the dive sites are very nice. We were able to see many things that are not typical for us. We captured underwater video of a Great Hammerhead almost right in front of the resort. It was beautiful and a little scary at the same time. We had several encounters with...

We've snorkeled in nine countries and this was some of the best! The couple managing Blackbird goes out of their way to make guests feel welcome and take advantage of all there is to do. We had one of the larger cabins and enjoyed the extra space. Service was great. Having limited access to internet was a wonderful help for...

Thank you for choosing to come to Belize and Blackbird Caye. We live and work here and we still are amazed by what nature has provided – it humbles us every day. We were certainly happy to share it with you and provide the kind of warmth and hospitality that makes a vacation truly special. We hope you’ll come back!

It was beautiful but there is garbage in the water and in areas of the island that are not part of the grounds. The food was good and staff was very helpful. I feel that boats are in ill repair. The main boat does not have a light for the head so you cannot shut the door. The steering cable...

Thank you for your TripAdvisor review. Our maintenance staff does a great job of collecting the garbage that floats into shore from such things as cruise ships that dump at sea, and we store it on site until we can take it off island. Our boats are regularly serviced as is all of our equipment, and items are replaced when...

Blackbird is not a luxury resort, but it is wonderful. We stayed in a deluxe cabana which had plenty of room, a comfortably soft bed, lots of cubbie and drawer space, a private porch complete with chairs and hammock and no shortage of hot water. Housecleaning did a great job and I really appreciated the turn down service. At first,...

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Blackbird and I cannot recommend this Resort enough! From the moment Mr. Moreno meets you at the airport to being dropped off after your trip, everything is well planned and easy. I get stressed about how hard it will be to find a guide or not knowing what to expect,...

We spent a week here in mid February. Even though we were expecting to see more sea life, we enjoyed the diving. The coral is very healthy, and the dive staff were very congenial and service-oriented. This is a small island and resort, I would classify it as a 3.5-star if there was such a rating (accommodation was nice but...

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.
