It is difficult to explain in words what a fabulous place this is. This is truly one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. It is paradise on what I would consider a remote island off the coast of southern Belize. My husband and I went to scuba dive and the experience was fanastic! The visibility was awesome....

Pros: 1) Rooms situated perfectly right on the beach; your choice of chairs on your balcony almost over the water, hammock suspended between coconut palms on your bit of private beach, or lounge chairs, all a few steps from your door. 2) South dock on island right in the midst of coral reef; no effort whatsoever to get to good...

Love this place. We stayed 2 days in Placencia, and enjoyed our time there, but the highlight of our trip was our 6 night stay at Hatchet Caye. It is a beautiful island surrounded by beautiful water/marine life and amazing views. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed and have all you need. We had great weather so we were...

Beautiful 4 acre island set just off the coast from Belize. 14 bedrooms spread over 7 little cottages with everything you need from the hammock to Wifi. Well designed and laid out with bar & restaurant. Breakfast was wonderful and the Lion fish tacos at lunch are a must. Head to the Jetty with a bottle of champagne to watch...

We went out to the resort just for the day. Leaving from Placencia Village, it was amazing just getting out there. Hatchet Caye lies about 17 miles off the coast, and passing by all the small little islands, and crossing different depths of crystal blue water is the fun. Once we got out there we spent the day snorkeling, spearing...

What a fantastic place to take a vacation. We wanted a quiet, relaxing, tropical place with great sea life. This was perfect! Travel: We flew out of Philadelphia on Delta and had the usual delays along the way. However, the journey to Hatchet Caye was memorable. The 20 minute puddle jumper out of Belize to Placencia, the 10 minute car...

We didn't stay at the resort. We took a boat ride from Placencia Village and spent the day on the island. The clear water in varying shades of blue and the white sand beaches were captivating. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The food and drinks were great.

Best place hands down. I can't believe this place is hidden!!! It is such an amazing piece of serenity. The ambiance is so calm and relaxing, you can't help but breath a sigh of relief. The rooms, the food, the staff and the the island overall is a rare gem. Definitely will go back.

We had high expectations after reseraching everything we could about Hatchet Caye and read every review we could find - but our experience far SURPASSED our expectations.

“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”
