Spent 3 nights at Hickatee in March. Comfortable accommodation, well maintained with thoughtful touches. Ian, Kate and the staff looked after me so well during my stay - great advice on the area, on day trips and the flora and fauna. Excellent dinner too!

We just returned from a family trip to Belize. Took our 10 year old and 12 year old. Spent 5 days in Punta Gorda and stayed at Hickatee the whole time. Ian and his staff were wonderful hosts. Clean and comfortable accommodations. The little dipping pool was great for an afternoon attitude adjustment on a very hot day. Ian provided... More

Punta Gorda was a huge disappointment to me. Hickatee Cottages took some of the sting out of the disappointment but still, driving to the site from town past the squalor, dead dogs, burning garbage along the road was tough to take. Not their fault of course but I'm not sure how to see past the grime and grinding poverty of... More

No idea what to expect. Reasonable prices. Located outside of town in the jungle. Lovely accommodations with contemporary style. Excellent hospitality. Owner provides thoughtful and intelligent advice. One of the nicest places we stayed in Belize.

Hickatee's website pointed me to unique cultural & nature-based experiences in Belize's Punta Gorda area which I took part in. They are delightful hosts, offer beautiful cottages, partner with local community providers, and are superb practitioners of Responsible Tourism. Oh yes, and their daily fresh, local food menu for dinners is a surprise bonus! Their gardens and Ian's passion &... More

Kate and Ian provide a wonderful welcome. Kate's meals are home cooked with home made bread, local fish and finished off with local chocolates and cacao liqueurs. Ian booked local trips suitable for our interests and age. We snorkelled, visited local Mayan ruins and a cacao farm and saw Toucans with a bird guide. Garifuna Drumming in the hotel one... More

The Location is a bit outside, but the natural surrounding is perfect. The lodge is beautifully landscaped and offers an excellent nature trail to learn more about the local flowers. The rooms/cottages are spacious and very clean. No A/C - you don't need as at night it cools off nicely - no TV etc. You can relax completely. The Service... More

We had a warm welcome at Hickatee, first of all Ian & Kate helped us a lot to get our DELTA luggage back to Punta Gorda as soon as possible and they also improved our trip planing a lot. The breakfast is good in particular since they bake their own bred what is a huge plus in Belize. The cottages... More

Kate & Ian Morton & all their staff are sensational. They are welcoming, knowledgeable, & extremely competent. Located on jungle's edge, the charming accommodations are comfortable w/o being pretentious & the grounds themselves are beautifully landscaped w/ tags identifying local flora of many varieties. Local fauna include a resident howler monkey troupe & colorful forest fairies (more prosaically, orchid bees).... More

Great place in the jungle, with very nice and clean cabins, wonderful gardens, and good breakfasts. Hosts and staff are welcoming and helpful. Very interesting concept of self-reliant, sustainable and environmentally integrated activity. Rain water supplied and solar powered. When I was there, the whole system broke down, so we spent the night without power nor water. That means no... More

Hickatee, Owner at Hickatee Cottages, responded to this review

As with almost all jungle accommodation in Belize, Hickatee is off-grid. Around 75% of our power is provided by our solar panels and battery system, and we use a generator in the evenings. We are thankful that any power failure is the very rare exception rather than the norm, and have never been without power for more than two hours... More
