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....

Our family (including three teens) had an AMAZING time in Hatchet Caye and would return tomorrow if we could. The people were super friendly and genuinely welcome us to their little piece of paradise in every way they could. All of us found what we were looking for, sometimes together, often apart. Three of us tried scuba. One of us...

Staff accommodated us for lunch , though we were late! Very nice of them to do so. Beautiful island and I want to go back and spend the night. Hatchet is really close to great diving and not far from Placencia either. Great place.

Amazing resort and staff from Morris at the restaurant, Yannick at the diving shop to Chris the Chef! Your snorkel adventure starts at the resort. Even our 17 yrs old did not get bored with all the resort has to offer! We all loved it there and were sad to leave. We will be back.

We stayed for three nights in march. We stayed in a bungalow of our own right on the beach with a 180 degrees oceanview from the bed. The Island is quiet except from the sound of the wind and the waves. We did some great snorkeling from the pier and also a arranged trip to Silk cayes where we swam...

Best vacation ever, the rooms were clean, beautiful view, and the a/c was perfect! I have to say that this was the 1st vacation that I actually relaxed. The staff is amazing and friendly!

Hatchet Caye is about living in the moment and enjoying the simplicity and beauty of the sea and nature. This what the Caribbean must have been like decades ago – untouched, wild, genuine and adventurous. Can’t wait to go back again. Thank you to the wonderful staff.
