I cannot say enough about Hatchet Caye. My daughter took me there for a "mother/daughter" trip and from the second we stepped onto the boat to head to the island I was blown away! Not only is this an amazing, beautiful place, but the staff truly make it an awesome experience! To be just 2 of 24 guests on the...

Such a great place to relax. Daisha and her staff are amazing and accommodating. The food in the restaurant is fantastic. The snorkeling trip to Silk Caye was wonderful as well as snorkeling on the island itself. The cabins very clean and comfortable. Would definitely go back in a heart beat.

The staff are the best and helpful they made my trip great. The island is beautiful and relaxing they have toys to pay the time and midst of all when I'm done from a tour at the Silk Cayes I'll stop in for a beer and swum in the pool

Thanks for taking the time to review us Philip! It means a lot to have a Belizean Tour Guide speak highly of our island and hospitality. We are so very happy that our island is open to visitors from near and far and that we are able to share the Hatchet Caye experience!

My husband and I stayed on Hatchet Caye for four nights, and we now have a new standard against which all future vacations will be measured. The staff at Hatchet is phenomenal, from the manager to the boat captains, the housekeepers, and of course everyone at the restaurant. The isolated location provides the perfect setting to really relax and forget...

I stayed for three nights at Hatchet Caye in March with my husband and two children (ages 9 & 12), and while at first glance I wasn't sure how I felt about the resort, about 24 hours into our stay I started to really love the island. While I wouldn't call the accommodations luxurious, they are really nice and extremely...

Many thanks for your candid review. We have thought of having more lounge chairs at the end of our South Dock but were not sure if it would interfere with those that enjoy catch and release fishing there. We will certainly give it more thought now that you have suggested it. Due to the fact that we make our own...

Full disclosure - We didn't stay at Hatchet Caye but instead moored our sailboat up on one of their well maintained mooring balls. Every member of staff at Hatchet Caye welcomed us to their little island paradise and took great care to meet our every need. Hatchet Caye staff made arrangements for fishing and snorkel trips, gave advice about sailing...

Hatchet Caye Resort is A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE. It's amazingly remote, so getting there is half the fun! First, you fly to Belize City, then transfer to a small plane to fly to the coastal town of Placencia. Hatchet Caye's driver will meet your plane and take you to their boat launch. It's a 45 min boat ride past multiple tiny...

My wife and I spend 4 nights in one of the waterfront cabanas and it was wonderful. Everyone was so nice, they introduced themselves and always said "hello!" Very peaceful, beautiful, semi-private beaches, chairs and hammocks all over the place. The food! The food was excellent! We took the meal plan and were more than satisfied. The trip over was...

Not a lot to add vs. all of the other positives people have left, but a few observations: We had a crazy boat ride in - we were the only couple they were picking up, so they picked us up in a small boat that was not enclosed. It was raining like hell and choppy. We were absolutely soaked and...

Thank you for your review. We take great pride in the health of the coral around Hatchet Caye and believe you might be mistaking the patches of coral rock along the shore around the cabanas for the very alive and thriving coral rock formations and reef around the entire island. Our guests and repeat guests boast and remark each and...
