We stayed 2 days in Hickatee. If we knew, how lovely this place is, we would have booked some nights more! The cottages are situated near Punta Gorda. It's a short ride downtown , but you can take one of a bikes, which a provided for free in the cottages. Kate and Ian are very caring and thoughtful hosts. The... More

Hickatee Cottages are one of those places you tend to read about and go no that can not be true. I am here to tell you its true in this case, this is very like an oasis in desert but in this case its an oasis in a jungle. PG is one of those undiscovered little gems and this could... More

Quaint and charming cottages in a jungle setting. The hosts, Kate and Ian were top notch in the care of the guests and sharing their love and knowledge of Belize. They reconfirmed flights and travel arrangements without us even asking. Ian picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport and even entertained us with local drumming! They... More

I've been on the road for 6 weeks and Hickatee has been the only bad spot to date. The cottages are superb. I've read several reviews complaining of the excessive rules by the owners, which I think are unfair. What I didn't see in any of the reviews were the friggin' demon flies that kept us hostage in the room.... More

Kate and Ian were wonderful! The cottages and grounds are lovely. Excellent meals on the veranda with other guests was a highlight. Hickatee cottages make an excellent base from which to explore the many adventures available in the southern Belize area. Being out in the jungle but near to town was perfect. We saw many birds and a jaguarundi crossed... More

Hickatee Cottages are perfect. Ian and Kate have strived to create an environment that is private and peaceful, and they have succeeded. Hickatee is close enough to town to bike, yet far enough away for tranquility. Meals on the front porch are fabulous. Guest can meet, swap stories, travel adventures, and relax. I travel alone, Ian and Kate put forth... More

What a great place. The owners, Ian and Kate, have put this gem of a hotel together with attention to detail and a lot of love and care. The cottages are wonderful. They are well appointed, thoughtfully laid out. The grounds are lovely and they have all plants and trees identified with loads of reference books to review the flora... More

I stayed two nights at Hickatee and it would be my first choice again after seeing//staying at another hotel in town. What made Hickatee a delight was the peacefulness of the jungle (vs noisy town), the attention to detail in the rooms and shared areas (beautiful mahogany tables, fresh flowers, soft fluffy towels, comfy rooms), and wonderful hospitality from Kate...

Hickatee Cottages is a wonderful experience. The cabins are comfortable and tastefully decorated with all the amenities you could hope for in an off the grid experience. Ian and Kate provided delicious breakfasts and dinners in an exotic veranda setting. The peace and the jungle sounds worked together to relax and take you out of whatever reality you have come...
