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

Together with my wife we run the Yoga Retreat production company "Belize Yoga" and have been partnering with Hatchet Caye Resort for the past couple years to host many of our yoga groups. The island is a perfect setting for our retreats in many ways. We love the exclusiveness of a private island plus the remote "away from it all"... More

I was lucky enough to stay here last month and loved every minute my time here. My only complaint is that I didn't have enough nights here! From there very start the service from Ramona in the Reservations Dept was outstanding, and that continued to the hotel manger (Dasha) on the island right down to the waiters and bartenders. The...

Hatchet Caye was without a doubt the absolute best vacation I’ve ever been on. As everyone before me has mentioned this island itself is fantastic, the service and staff are terrific, the views are amazing, the food was awesome, and the snorkeling is incredible. I traveled with a friend and we stayed in cabana #6 which has 2 double beds.... More
