My husband and I just got back a week ago from Hatchet Caye, where we spent 12 nights during our honeymoon. All the staff were so friendly, we didn't want to leave. After a one hour boat ride from the mainland (hold on to your hats folks - this is quite a fast ride) we arrived at Hatchet Caye. For...

My husband and I spent Dec 26-30 at Hatchet Caye. We rented a small SUV in Belize City & easily drove to Placencia & left our car at their dock. Hatchet was beautiful. Staff was friendly. Dives were fun-speared lionfish & fed to sharks! The food was very good. The water trampoline & snorkeling was fun too. Caught bonefish off...

It is always so nice to hear from guests that have taken advantage of ALL of the water activities we offer at the island. Thank you very much for your review that highlights the simple yet amazing things one can do on a remote island in Belize!

What a special place this is! We did a split trip with 3 nights at Hatchet Caye and 4 nights at Chabil Mar on mainland. I think it was good to split up the trip, but I did wish for one more day on the island. Our first day was rainy otherwise it probably would have been perfect. It's a...

When our boat to Hatchet Caye was met by one of the staff carrying a tray of tropical beverages, I knew we were in for something special! The luxurious cabanas are spaced far enough apart to give privacy to each porch, (which are decorated with a potted aloe in case of sunburn). The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is wonderful...

My husband and I went on what turned out to be an impromptu honeymoon and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. The island is beautiful and well maintained while still feeling remote and exotic. The food was great and that was very important to us. We took a snorkel excursion and saw...

The Hatchet Caye Resort deserves the high praise given by other reviewers. In our case, we went on to stay at the Belcampo Belize Lodge so some comparisons are inevitable as the cost per night is similar. The main attraction of Hatchet Caye is, of course, the location some 20 miles off shore. Here you are paying for the costs...

Many thanks for your review! We always love to hear guest feedback and appreciate your kind words. This is the first year we have experienced the house fly problem you mentioned. We normally have our pest control company visit the island every quarter and this has been enough in the past to keep things under control. Over the last few...

We stayed for four nights in January and found Hatchet Caye to be a terrific small resort getaway. Immediately we felt welcomed to the island, safe and well taken care of. The room was cozy and clean, and came with a terrific view of the beach and ocean. The Lionfish Grill was outstanding and could stand alone as a five...

We stayed three nights over Christmas and found Hatchet Caye to be a nice alternative to our time in the jungle beforehand. It's a very small island (walk around the whole thing in 5mins) but well equipped and the cabins offer great privacy. Although adjoined, we didn't once hear our neighbour and our private balcony had a lovely view out...
