Thatch Caye is a completely unique resort experience. Yes, it's a private island resort with unparalleled outdoor activities and understated luxury, but staying there feels more like visiting the private summer estate of an extremely interesting and hospitable friend (the owner, Steve, keeps a casita on the the island and joined us for cocktails every night and a snorkel trip for his own enjoyment). My wife and 10-year old daughter and I travel a fair amount together and rarely repeat stays. This is our second visit to Thatch Caye, though, and will likely become an annual vacation. Since the island only holds about 20+ guests, we frequently had entire mornings or afternoons completely to ourselves at the new "Star Fish Bar" salt water swimming area. One example of staff attentiveness: someone must have noticed my daughter scrambling to get out of the water onto the swimming area dock. The next morning, an underwater ladder to the dock had been installed, without asking. Kids are clearly welcome, but they should plan on leaving cell phones behind. They have also installed a new large screen theater since last year for outdoor movie night DVD's. My family travels to escape. If you're looking to replace air conditioning with cool sea breezes, shopping with swimming, restaurants with well-prepared meals, and internet time with reading or snorkling--you'll love Thatch Caye as much as we do. Thatch Caye is also perfect for a romantic couples getaway--I wish I would have known about it for our honeymoon. What not to bring: too many clothes or electronic devices. What to bring: extra waterproof sunscreen, insect repellent, and must-have snacks. Great value for cost!
