Beautiful, small, secluded cottages in the jungle. Everything was perfect except the weather, they do have a lot of rain in Punta Gorda. The lovey couple that owner and manage this place are wonderful caring lovely people. They try their best to grant every wish and are most helpful with anything you desire. The rooms are spacious, the ambiance delightful,... More

Hickatee cottages is a labour of love. Its owners are two english eccentrics who decided to start a jungle lodge in one of the many inaccessible places in Belize. They are the hotel and you will take to them and be charmed by their enthusiasm and sheer hard work and determination, or not. The property is lovely, for a jungle... More

Ian & Kate maintain such a lovely place, you walk in to your cottage and you immediately feel cozy. The rooms are very clean and have great lighting. The walkways and setting for the cottages are very charming. The food was very good. For a wake up call they will deliver pressed coffee and/or tea to your cottage! Ian was... More

First things - Yes, the wooden bridge on the way there will support your vehicle. We got out of our 11-person van to check so you don't have to. Yes, you're going the correct way down the dirt road. Keep going. It's not too far after the second (I think) bridge. Now that's out of the way... Can you envision... More

We just returned from a two week trip in Belize and stayed at a total of 6 places - Hickatee was by far our favorite, even over our splurge resort hotel. First of all, Kate and Ian are incredibly sweet and charming. They are very genuine, warm and interesting people and their hard work has created a special place to... More

My 2 teenage daughters and I spent a few days at Hickatee Cottages and loved ever minute of it. The hospitality was warm and welcoming and the rooms were great. As the cottages are surrounded by jungle it meant we got to hear a variety of creatures, including the howler monkeys which come from the "once heard, never forgotten" department.... More

From the first email to Ian and Kate, till we had to say goodbye, it was a real great experience! We stayed 5 nights, almost the first words from Ian's mouth, "we've upgraded you" to the honeymoon cottage! Go figure! The gourmet dinners were out of this world! Plenty of activities and guides close by, we used the bikes and... More

A beautiful spot wished we'd stayed another day. Food excellent and Ian knows everything about local flora and fauna. A little farther out of town than I expected and roads a little rough for biking. But you can get a taxi.

Our stay was over the top amazing. Ian and Kate are the most gracious hosts. Stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and was immaculately clean and spacious. We had dinner there with friends and they made a multi-course meal that was to die for. Everything done from scratch. I highly recommend Hickatee Cottages to anyone wanting a quaint establishment with beauty... More
