Well first off if you are a Type A person that needs constant stimulation and things to keep you amused quit reading this and book a trip to NYC or Las Vegas. However if you can throttle back to 1/4 to 1/2 speed Blackbird Caye Resort is spectacular. We arrived not knowing what to expect but within an hour or...

From the moment we arrived here it felt like coming home. The entire staff was genuine, helpful and accommodating. Brandon & Bernie make the experience SO much more than just a vacation & all the staff just continues that feeling of welcoming. Oscar is an amazing bartender, Marcus got our dinner orders & accommodating any dietary needs. The dive crew...

Brandon and Bernie made this trip an unbelievable experience. Given the amazing setting they could've taken things easy and we still would've had a great trip, but they went out of their way to make sure every possible thing was taken care of. They even provided us a videographer to record our scuba engagement! This took no small amount of...

We are avid snorkelers from Minnesota.We found that snorkeling at the Turneffe Islands is the best place close to us. We have spent 7 trips to the Turneffe Attoll Resorts.We stayed at the Turneffe Island Resort 6 times so we knew the snorkeling was great.

This isn't likely your normal review. Although much can be said about this location and the activities, I have to open with a huge compliment of the staff. This is a dive resort with snorkeling as an adjunct activity. On this trip we lost a member of our dive group due to illness during the trip. While not a dive-related...

Blackbird resort is truly magical. The resort is its own island with individual cabanas, crystal clear warm water and the best staff on the planet. We stay in the deluxe cabanas which are spacious with a separate seating area, coffee machine, frig and large screened in front porch. All cabanas are ocean front. I am a snorkeler. Every visit I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blackbird Caye is a privately owned Island sitting on The Mesoamerican Reef System - often referred to as the "Jewel of the Caribbean" - it is the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere with a rich tapestry of vivid corals, mangrove forests, coastal wetlands, and diverse marine wildlife. Within the reef you will find Turneffe Atoll the Caye where the resort is located. Turneffe is the largest and most biologically diverse of the 3 atolls found in the Caribbean home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, and more than 500 species of fish, manatees, dolphins and invertebrates. There are over 70 dives sites all within 10-15 minutes from the resort and 45 minutes to Lighthouse Reef where The Great Blue Hole is located. The resort is made of 19 modern cabanas facing the Caribbean Sea and 1 beach house. The cabanas are all equipped with A/C, fans, private bathrooms, either King or Queen Beds with new comfortable bedding, private porches with chairs and swinging hammocks. Included in the price are your cabana, 3 daily meals, dive or snorkel package, complimentary transfers to the island on Wednesdays and Saturdays and use of the resort's kayaks. We are the only resort on Turneffe with an air strip making it convenient to arrive or depart any other day of the week. Our courteous and helpful staff will always make you feel at home as customer service ... more   less
