My daughter and I loved everything about this place. The cottages are cozy and clean... and the porch hammock is a great place to relax and listen to the sounds of the jungle. We used the bikes everyday to explore the area. Allison and the staff go above and beyond to make this place special and are very helpful with planning day trips/tours. It really is a little slice of heaven on earth- bumpy road and all.

I must admit I was slightly nervous about staying somewhere without A/C in this heat but the cottages are so well designed that it wasn’t an issue. The fan was ample. The best thing about Hickatee however is the fabulous welcome given by Alison and the way she looks after her guests. If ever someone was in the right business it is her. Don’t be put off by the rough road in, it’s worth it. In addition we were treated to a ‘dawn chorus’ by the local howler monkeys - what an experience!

Thank you so much for the very kind review. While it is the Belizean jungle, the earlier months in the year can offer cooler temperatures throughout the evening. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. It was our pleasure having you here!

Hickatee is our go to place in PG. It is not really off the beaten trail but you may well think so they are located in the jungle just minutes away from downtown PG. This year we were informed that they had again upgraded the Solar power station so there is no issue with power shortages for your devices. The entire resort has hi speed internet servies as well. Each cottage has its own on demand hot water for showering. The food is great the breakfasts Ali makes all the fresh bread and muffins. The fruits are so flavourful that when you get home the local fruits seem bland. The owners are keen to help with tours having the finger on the pulse of whats hot. The property has trails to walk around to look at many species of plants birds insects. It is likely that you will be seranaded by the troop of local howler monkeys. The cottages are all unique and very pretty we have stayed here four times now and will go back again in 2021. This area of Belize is often overlooked by travlelers mainly because they are unaware of all the things you can do. There is fishing, snorkeling and scuba here for water lovers and if you hike there are the trails on the property and any number of other areas that you can go to. There is caving ruins and so many cultural things to do. Cocoa farms where you can not only learn but actually make chocolate the Mayan way. There are also ruins nearby that are virtually undiscovered. Ali and Eduardo the owners have many little hidden gems of tours you can take or do that you will have to ask about. There are butterfly farms right next door that you can visit. Hickatee caters to the traveller who is tired of the average lodge. It is truly a hidden gem we will be back again and again if you have questions please ask us we will be happy to help out

We spent 2 weeks in Belize with our first 5 nights at Hickatee Cottages. We could not have picked a better place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A wonderful, peaceful, and beautiful location to begin and end our days. We did not have a car during our stay - but were easily able to get into Punta Gorda via the complimentary bikes, or just walking. And the local Tide Tours company picked us up on site for scheduled tours. Breakfast in the morning, and rum punch/dinner in the evening on the porch of the main house were both extremely relaxing. Allison is a great cook for Monday night dinner -and on other nights partners with local Asha’s Culture Kitchen for delicious meals. If you stay on a Wednesday night -taking part in the local Garifuna drumming presentation is a must. There is a resident troop of Howler monkeys. Although we did not get to see them on site -we were able to hear them almost every night! Allison is a wonderful and knowledgeable host. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable -and able to provide whatever guidance/assistance/tips are needed in recommending sites or arranging tours in the local area. The cottages were amazingly quiet and comfortable. We stayed in the Wilby Suite and loved it. Coffee and tea delivered to your porch every morning to start the day was a lovely extra. A totally rejuvenating stay and we would love to return one day!

I just spent 10 days at Hickatee (named after an endangered turtle species). It was the perfect place to calm my soul and to write. Sounds of monkeys and birds all day while blue morpho butterflies flew by and fireflies at night. Alli accommodated every possible need with true graciousness, even scheduling a massage in my cottage! I can't recommend this place highly enough to connect with nature, explore the jungle, walk, read, write, paint etc. And a pot of french press coffee each morning delivered to my porch!
