I went last year in May and my wife and I were just talking about how much fun we had. I realized I didnt review them so here I am now. The service was great and the dive operation was very good. I really cant say enough good things. The service we received from everyone was second to none. Our...

After reading all the reviews, we knew this was the place for us to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted at the dock with a fresh drink, escorted to our room after a tour of this tiny piece of heaven! The grounds a beautifully kept, the room wonderful, we really liked the fact the island is solar powered!...

We were tied up to a mooring line and were able to enjoy the amenities that this resort offered from food/drink and dive shop. Our dive guide, Yani, was fantastic in making sure we saw many animals and even fed a moray eel a lion fish! I was able to get just feet from a turtle in it's cave. The...

I stayed at Hatchet Caye for three nights as part of a week long yoga retreat - which was fantastic. The rooms are all righ by the ocean with individual balconies. They are in very good condition, spotlessly clean and have some nice touches - such as DVD players. There didn't really seem to be many beaches in Belize, and...

I was here last year for the first time and loved it. My theory on life is if it ain't broke don't fix it. So I came again two weeks ago but for 14 days this time. And am already trying to figure out how to return again this year. The island is very small so everyone gets to know...

our trip to the island wasn't fantastic with the big waves making it feel much longer especially after a day of travel. it was surely made up for once we arrived and a tropical drink was placed in my hand upon stepping off the boat. we were on our honeymoon, like a few other couples and must have booked first...

This resort should not be missed. We like to look for small, unique properties to stay and BINGO did we hit the jackpot. Firstly the attraction was that the resort is 20 miles offshore. We calulated that there could only be about 16 guests max at a time! Well, for our first 4 days there were only 4 guests which...

My girlfriend and I spent 5 days on Hatchet Caye back in February and it was one of the greatest trips we had ever been on. The island is truly a hidden gem with an incredible amount of sea life and wildlife surrounding the island. It's located roughly ~12 miles out and the boat ride their is fun in-itself. The...

This was our second trip to Hatchet Caye. Staff were mostly the same and even better than last year! Facilities and staff are top notch. Weather was a little less than stellar but that's the chance you take going anywhere. Food, as before, was wonderful. We love seafood and had the opportunity to eat it prepared in numerous fashions. there...

I discovered this resort online, and was tantalized by an overhead photo of the property that was completely intoxicating. Upon arrival in mid-December, my expectations were surpassed by the beauty of the property and its' setting. I had a room in a bungalow that was conjoined to another room, and beautifully appointed, but since the other was unoccupied I enjoyed...
