Our good friend referred us to Hatchet Caye. We had 4 adults & 4 children ages 7-12.
From the second we got off the boat we were greeted with drinks, given a tour of the island & where we would stay. The houses were awesome...More

Hi Joseph and Cheryl,
Thank you for your review. I so wish you had mentioned to me that the day visitors on the south dock were causing you grief. We try our very best to keep them from docking there and are very sorry that...More

Our guide dropped us off for a few hours of snorkeling, relaxing, and sunbathing while our husbands went out fishing. When they were done we stayed for a wonderful lunch. They island if very small but very nice and quaint.

Glad you enjoyed your day trip to the island! Thank you for your review.
We had a groupon which included the round trip boat ride from Placencia to Hatchet Caye. People did come to the island by private boat for a drink or a meal. Beyond that we simply don’t know. Sorry we are not more helpful.
Many day trippers come over to the lovely restaurant. The day trippers are limited to the restaurant side of the island. This is where the best snorkeling is . You would also have access to the swimming pool
I don't like to be cold at depth regardless of the surface/air temp so I wore a skin with a shorty over (or under!) and was never cold at depth for my 50+ min dives. Have a great time, wonderful property and staff!!
