We sailed to Hatchet Caye and anchored just off the caye for the night. We went in for diner and to talke to the dive shop about diving with the whale sharks. The caye is very well maintained and a great place to have a bite and a cocktail. We enjoyed our dinner at the Lion Fish Grill and some... More

I enjoy getting a boat to take us out to this gorgeous island for a day trip of sun, snorkel, fish, swim, bird watch, stroll around, cocktails and lunch. Arriving around 10 and heading back to Placencia around 3 or 4. The resort has great fresh menu options, my favorite are the lionfish tacos, never disappointed . . . and... More

My husband and I stayed six nights and we have NO complaints. The island is beautiful; the cabanas are comfortable, spacious and private; the food is delicious; and the service is outstanding. To top it off, the snorkeling was great fun. Truly, it was one of our best vacations ever and we hope to go back soon.

Hatchet Caye resort was one of the stops on my Yoga retreat vacation. We stayed for 3 nights in the lovely cabana, the air conditioning was much needed and welcomed for the balmy tropical air, the weather was perfect. Having my own personal oceanfront hammock was a plus! The food was delicious, the drinks tickled the tastebuds, and the excursions... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights on Hatchet Caye. Although this is a relative newcomer to the tourist trade of cayes off the Belize coast, they've managed to make the experience an excellent one. Our time there was wonderful. I'd like to mention a few particulars that may help future travelers to the resort, as these are things I... More

We were on a sailing trip around the cayes offshore from Placencia and came across Hatchet Caye Resort. They had a marina which we moored overnight and had an absolutely excellent dinner in their restaurant. Great and pleasant service, clean, quality food and nice ambience. Just what we needed after being on the boat for a few days.

I spent a week out at Hatchet Caye. Its a well run, polished resort near the Silk Cayes off Placencia. The hour long boat ride is rough in the small boat but easy in the larger one. You share the island with about 20 guests and about 10 staff. The snorkeling off the dock is wonderful, there are lots of... More
