Best vacation ever, the rooms were clean, beautiful view, and the a/c was perfect! I have to say that this was the 1st vacation that I actually relaxed. The staff is amazing and friendly! We stayed in the honeymoon cabana, a bit more secluded and the view was perfect. Looking forward to our next trip. Caught my 1st bonefish.. so... More

Hatchet Caye is about living in the moment and enjoying the simplicity and beauty of the sea and nature. This what the Caribbean must have been like decades ago – untouched, wild, genuine and adventurous. Can’t wait to go back again. Thank you to the wonderful staff.

A few issues, but for the most part, utter paradise. We chose Hatched Caye over other resorts in the area because we read on TA that there was snorkeling right off the island. That is an understatement. There is INCREDIBLE, AMAZING snorkeling right off the dock. We went every day, twice a day. The reef is really big, and there... More

Many thanks for your review. The staff and myself enjoy reading about how our guests experience our island and services. We are truly sorry for the inconveniences caused by our engine failure the day you departed. Of course things would have gone much better had the seas not been so rough. We were stressed as well trying to make sure... More

Great place to get away from the "attached" life we all lead. My cell phone didn't have connection and was hoping the wireless didn't work, but it did have limited access which was just fine. Food was good, but did vary from a quality perspective day to day. i.e. Eggs Benedict sauce was smooth one day, but more solidified the... More

We had been to Belize 3 times prior, staying at different places every time. I am a diver and my wife is a snorkler/reader. We timed the trip to coincide with whale sharks, but once again were snubbed. Conditions were good, but the whale sharks were not interested in accommodating us. My wife made the right call by not accompanying... More

Went here for our honeymoon and we loved it! Great fishing and snorkelling. Lots to do, and we were a little worried since it's such a small island but we were always finding different things to experience. Food is great, staff is wonderful! Playing volleyball with the staff was awesome. We had one of the cabanas and the views were... More

I went last year in May and my wife and I were just talking about how much fun we had. I realized I didnt review them so here I am now. The service was great and the dive operation was very good. I really cant say enough good things. The service we received from everyone was second to none. Our... More

After reading all the reviews, we knew this was the place for us to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted at the dock with a fresh drink, escorted to our room after a tour of this tiny piece of heaven! The grounds a beautifully kept, the room wonderful, we really liked the fact the island is solar powered!... More

We were tied up to a mooring line and were able to enjoy the amenities that this resort offered from food/drink and dive shop. Our dive guide, Yani, was fantastic in making sure we saw many animals and even fed a moray eel a lion fish! I was able to get just feet from a turtle in it's cave. The... More
