“Great experience and location”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

We stayed the duplex cottage for our family of 5. The rooms were clean comfortable and very large.
Ian and Kate were the perfect hosts.
The place was very quiet as there were only one other set of guests.
Fresh coffee and juice delivered to our veranda at 7 every morning. Marvellous.
Food was very good.

Garifuna drumming on the Wednesday was excellent.
Lots of biting insects so remember your repellant.

Ian showed us lots of local mini fauna that was found in and around the property.
The eerie sounds of howler monkeys in the middle of the night is something we will not forget in a hurry.
The snorkelling trip to Snake keys and our trip to an organic Mayan farm were both outstanding. Didn't see any manatees on the snorkelling trip though.
Blue creek caving is not worth doing if you have already done ATM.

One thing to note the dirt road to the property is not in good repair and it got noticeable worse whilst we were there as their was a lot of rain one night.

This place is terrific. We found this to be a great jungle experience with wonderful hosts, great food, beautiful clean rooms and all at an excellent value. This is a "must stay" if you travel to southern Belize. Thanks to Ian and Kate

We loved our stay at Hickatee. We started out with an eve. walk on their good trail into the jungle, and then enjoyed a delicious meal on their veranda. The food was without exception excellent. One of us needed to be gluten-free, and Kate was wonderful in finding foods and even experimenting with gluten-free English pancakes, just for us! Everything was fresh and the spices and flavors were great. We stayed in cottage # 1 which was lovely-- beautiful wood floors, screened windows with louvered shutters for privacy but also to allow air flow. Nice big bathroom. The grounds are like a botanical garden with trees and plants labeled. The local staff is friendly, polite and capable. Kate and Ian were wonderful hosts, helpful to the Nth degree with planning outings, giving advice, and teaching us about the area. We also enjoyed getting to know the other guests-- an international crowd happened to be there, and it was fun to chat with them. We do wish we were still there!

There are many great things in Belize - this is a gem and one of them.
Super place, set on the edge of the jungle. Amazing hosts and cats!
Get Ian to do a night walk in the jungle and marvel at his knowledge of bugs.
Kate's food is super (not at all sure how she manages!) and start with and top off with Ian's punch and after dinner tipple.

Room Tip: Wilby suite - super
