Got the Living Social deal for 4 nights and the worst thing I can say about the trip is that 4 nights was not long enough!! The entire staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful--really made us feel special like the whole island was ours. The food was good (more veggies would've been nice) and drinks were GREAT! This island is pretty remote and was unbelievably beautiful and I could've spent at least a week just relaxing and watching the colors of the water change. However, there are plenty of activities as well if you get restless (well, not if you're looking for nightlife and meeting singles or anything like that), like sailing and snorkeling. We also had a trip to the mainland for cave swimming and viewing Mayan ruins organized by the staff. They make anything possible! The cave swim and ruins were great, but I would suggest getting all mainland stuff out of the way before or after your stay on Hatchet Caye, as the journey took over 12 hours and we really would have loved to have that day enjoying the beauty of the island. Also, don't forget tons of SD cards and batteries for your camera--it's difficult to stop taking pictures as everything is so amazingly beautiful!
