Absolutely gorgeous remote beautiful island resort :) Visited there in a Moorings catamaran but be careful DO NOT enter the channel only moor on the mooring balls off shore!! Belize has strict penalty's if you hit any coral in the shallow water. Resturant was great, food and service excellent.

We visited Hatchet Caye in mid September and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! The staff was friendly and helpful, the island was beautiful, the cabana was perfect (and 3 feet from the water). There were only a few other couples on the island when we were there so the entire stay felt very private. We did a... More

We stayed at Hatchet Caye in February 2013. I really can't say enough good things about it. We stayed in Cabana #3, which is literally 3 feet from the water. It had a private beach area between #3 and Cabana #4. The food was really good and we got plenty to eat with each meal. The drinks were cheap and... More

We spent 6 days at Hatchet Caye in May of this year. It was AMAZING! Accomodations were excellent, food was out of this world good and the atmosphere was casual, fun and on the water. What more could you want? This 1.1 mile island is 10 minutes from the barrier reef - my husband loved this for diving purposes. I... More

Twenty miles off shore from Placencia, Hatchet Caye is peaceful and exclusive. As such, plan your activities ahead of time, ie, side trips or a massage. The atmosphere and staff are laid back which are perfect if you want downtime, or to dive, snorkel, and fish. Lots of water toys to help you navigate around the caye (I was told... More

That about sums it up. My wife and I have traveled the South Pacific, Bahamas and Mexico and Hatchet Caye is simply the best place we have been. The location, food and amenities are all excellent but it is the staff that really puts this place over the top. We were on island recently for our wedding and stayed for... More

We spent 6 nights in Cabana #1......wonderful accommodations, great location for the dock and restaurant. You need 2 or so nights just to get in the 'island' mood, then you really start to appreciate the relaxed atmosphere encouraged by the friendly and totally competent staff, plus the 'away from it all' location. Travel to the Caye was extremely easy with... More

We booked the island with 5 other couples and I was a bit apprehensive about the decision to visit Belize in July. Wow was I wrong, the weather was beautiful on the island, even though we were in the rainy season. We had sunshine everyday, the staff was great, by day two they knew everyones name and what they liked... More

Our family spent four nights at Hatchet Caye and had a fantastic time. The island is tiny and is surrounded by the most beautiful, clear water. There is amazing snorkeling off the pier, and there are daily boat trips to other snorkeling spots. The beach areas are small, but they are beautiful spots in which to relax, and there are... More

We stayed at Hatchet Caye for 4 nights of a two week Belize vacation. We loved it. The location is spectacular, with beautiful water in every direction, excellent snorkeling and fishing right on the island (caught a bonefish and cast to tailing permit within 100 yards of our room), and world class diving just a short boat ride away.
