Honestly, I can't believe I haven't left a review before now. This place is my absolute favorite vacation spot in the world! They coordinate your trip from the minute you land into BZE. You arrive and are greeted by the staff and an island refreshment. I cannot speak enough of the staff. They are so very friendly and greet you...

My wife and I split our honeymoon trip to Belize into two parts, the first half being at Hatchet Caye. Best decision we could have made! The island is very well maintained, has such kind and helpful staff, and the food is very tasty. If you want a private, quiet, aquatic escape then this is a must-do destination. From the...

We had the best time on our honeymoon at Hatchet Caye. From the moment we were picked up at the Placencia airstrip to the moment they dropped us back off there, everything was taken care of for us. We went on two fishing trips and one snorkeling trip away from the island but every day were were able to snorkel,...

Booked our stay last minute whilst in Placencia and was so happy we stayed hear. Located moments from the Silk Cayes and incredible snorkelling, we sway with sharks, rays and sea turtles which was one of the highlights of our month long trip around Central America. Rasta took us sailing around the islands and this too was a memorable experience....

Nestled in such a small caye, this small resort is a big surprise. The bungalows are facing the ocean, with private lounge chairs, impressive views, great beds, a flat screen Tv, very clean. I would have never expected such a great room in the middle of nowhere. The restaurant is five star. Their chef Chris is only 21 years old...

This place is simply amazing from the food to the cabanas to the staff. it was a little paradise in the Caribbean. Great snorkeling of the dock and on the surrounding areas. Getting there was a total adventure. The weather report said it was going to be raining everyday but the weather was wonderful and it only rain at night....

We had a really wonderful visit to Hatchet Caye. We visited at the end of August, which concerned me as it was hurricane season and very hot in the states...well the weather on Hatchet Caye was awesome! No rain, only a few clouds, no mosquitoes (probably because there was not a lot of rain..) and a very friendly, competent staff....
