This tiny island between Belize and Honduras was our piece of heaven for 6 days. You really feel disconnected from the rest of the world and the staff make you feel really special. The rooms were amazing, clean and spacious. The food is sooooo delicious - of course, you can't have seafood fresher than that and the presentation is wonderful....

My husband and I heard about Hatchet through a Groupon deal. We weren't planning an August vacation, but the place sounded so wonderful, had great reviews and the price was too good to pass up. We're SO happy we tried it! We love everything about Hatchet--the staff are wonderful, helpful and fun, the place is just gorgeous, the rooms (and...

My friends and I stayed at Hatchet Caye Resort for 5 nights in February. The island is so beautiful and the rooms so comfortable that it felt like a dream. I absolutely loved staying here but it is important to know that the island is only 7 acres in size and there is no "night life" so if you want...

We just came back from Hatchet, and according to my husband it was his best vacation ever !!!! btw mine too :) Staff was extremely friendly , cabanas very comfortable, food was superb. Coral reef around the island was teaming with marine life. At night sting rays would come to illuminated deck. My husband went for 3 fishing trips and...

We spent 6 nights on Hatchet Caye and every one of them was incredible. We stayed during the 2nd week of September and the weather was just about perfect every day (It rained during the nights). It was very humid but it didn't bother us much as we were out on or near the water most of the time and...

This place is awesome! My wife and I went during the rainy season for the first leg of our honeymoon and we had a blast. My wife was somewhat worried about getting island fever for our 5 day/4 night leg, but she finally got in tune with island living. Additionally, the island itself is small, we were able to walk...

We had done a lot of research when deciding where to go and stay on our Belizean Honeymoon, and our three nights at Hatchet Caye were the absolute highlight! We lucked out with the Honeymoon cottage which was so lovely, and had a great time snorkeling and fishing. It was the off-season, so it felt really mellow and relaxing. The...

We booked a 4 night stay here instead of a 6 night stay because we were a bit worried that we would get bored on the island. That is definitely not the case here! We wish we had a few more days to fully experience all they have to offer. We were somehow lucky enough to get the honeymoon sweet...

Hatchet Caye is a great destination. If you are a snorkeler, go for it! The coral and fish right off the dock are great and snorkeling there never gets old. The snorkel trip to Gladden Spit can't be missed due to the loggerhead turtles. I saw 4 of them and each shell was around 5 feet in diameter! The nurse...

This was the greatest place I have ever visited. It was secluded and quite, one of the greatest places that I have ever visited. I would recommend this resort to every one looking for a fantastic time.

“I personally like cabana 7 as it is the most remote.”

“Cabanas: #5 & 6 have greater exposure--to sun & sea. #4 has more shade which is good if you don't want too much sun”
