Great food, Great staff, Great location. Loved fishing, snorkeling, relaxing. My husband said Awesome, Awesome,Awesome and he didn't want to go in the beginning. We will definitely go back to Hatchet Caye.

Hatchet Caye is a wonderful little island paradise. It's a vacation that you can make as adventurous or as peaceful as you want. No pressure from staff to do single thing except to enjoy your stay. There are only 9 guest rooms/houses. They were at capacity during our stay, but we never felt cramped. There are plenty of quiet and... More

I am a tour group leader and brought a group of 16 college students to the island for four days. Our goal was to expose the students to various activities (kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, sailing and snorkeling) so we rented out the entire island and had full access to all of the potential activities. We had a lot... More

We went to Hatchet Caye on our Honeymoon and had an amazing time! Our trip began with a fairly full day of travel which consisted of 3 flights and the 17 mile boat ride out to the island. This journey is totally worth it when you come around the corner to see paradise on the horizon. You are welcomed to... More

We saw a photo of Hatchet Caye on a Bloomspot discount offering (no longer available) and said we have to go!! It was well worth it and would have been even without the Bloomspot discount! Hatchet Caye is a private 7 acre island off the coast of Belize. It's essentially a coral caye with only 9 guest cabanas near the... More

Our trip to Hatchet Caye was the vacation of our dreams. I may mention that this was my husbands 50th birthday gift and was something that we anticipated and planed for long before stumbling upon the "perfect trip" on LivingSocial. We are seasoned travelers so I am not always so easy to impress. The planets aligned, God smiles and Most-Of-All... More

I have never written a review for any other place I have stayed, but this one I felt deserved my time. We have traveled to Grand Cayman, Mexico, St. Lucia, etc., but this paradise topped them all. We actually traveled in June of 2012, for our one year wedding anniversary. I just had to express my extreme happiness throughout the... More

It's a tropical vacation with the amenities of a 5 star hotel. The staff makes you feel like family and the food makes you feel like a king. It is a choose your own adventure type of escape, whether you want to snorkel, dive, kayak, sail, fish, relax on the beach or have a drink at the bar you will... More

Stopped in here for a day of snorkelling and scuba diving. Had very knowledgeable dive masters who really added to the overall experience. Stopped for lunch at the restaurant which was one of the best meals of our entire trip. A great place to just relax and enjoy the climate.

I've been trying to find the appropriate way to describe Hatchet Caye's approach to guests. The best I can come up with is "Five Star Resort for People Who Don't Need Someone Else to Wipe Their Bums for Them." That's my curmudgeonly personal opinion. Or more politely, they manage to balance highly attentive with pretty laid back. The only other... More
