A truly great place with wonderful people. If you want to get away, this is the place. There is great snorkeling, outings to see the rays/sharks/turtles (a MUST do), and great food and drink. We would go back for sure

The people who work at Hatchet Caye were not very friendly or helpful. It was like pulling teeth to get any kind of answer out of them. Usually the response to any question was ya and they would keep on walking. I would just stand there wondering what ya means. For example I would ask if I could get a... More

Hello David, In researching your time with us on Hatchet Caye Resort, we find your visit logged under 'no sale'. This means that your vessel stopped in and probably used the internet but there was no exchange of currency. Our staff have wonderful relations with visiting mariners to our island and we have never had complaints from resident guests or... More

We spent five nights on the island but regret that we didn't have the full seven we had originally booked, due to the hurricane, as we loved it so much. The resort takes up the whole island and is a really peaceful and relaxing environment. Each room is very near to the sea and therefore all have fabulous views. The... More

We sailed the Southern Belize Cayes and Hatchet Caye was one of our favorite anchorages. The resort welcomed us for drinks at their beautiful seaside bar and restaurant. We then had a nice swim in the freshwater pool and stayed for dinner! Every choice was fresh and scrumptious, from the chicken to the lobster! Good wifi reception too!
