I was here last year for the first time and loved it. My theory on life is if it ain't broke don't fix it. So I came again two weeks ago but for 14 days this time. And am already trying to figure out how to return again this year. The island is very small so everyone gets to know...

our trip to the island wasn't fantastic with the big waves making it feel much longer especially after a day of travel. it was surely made up for once we arrived and a tropical drink was placed in my hand upon stepping off the boat. we were on our honeymoon, like a few other couples and must have booked first...

This resort should not be missed. We like to look for small, unique properties to stay and BINGO did we hit the jackpot. Firstly the attraction was that the resort is 20 miles offshore. We calulated that there could only be about 16 guests max at a time! Well, for our first 4 days there were only 4 guests which...

My girlfriend and I spent 5 days on Hatchet Caye back in February and it was one of the greatest trips we had ever been on. The island is truly a hidden gem with an incredible amount of sea life and wildlife surrounding the island. It's located roughly ~12 miles out and the boat ride their is fun in-itself. The...

This was our second trip to Hatchet Caye. Staff were mostly the same and even better than last year! Facilities and staff are top notch. Weather was a little less than stellar but that's the chance you take going anywhere. Food, as before, was wonderful. We love seafood and had the opportunity to eat it prepared in numerous fashions. there...

I discovered this resort online, and was tantalized by an overhead photo of the property that was completely intoxicating. Upon arrival in mid-December, my expectations were surpassed by the beauty of the property and its' setting. I had a room in a bungalow that was conjoined to another room, and beautifully appointed, but since the other was unoccupied I enjoyed...

This is my first review ever and Hachet Caye was our first major vacation anywhere in our lives. My wife Amanda and I (Jason) went there in Sept. 2013 for 10 days. That's right! 10! We were in heaven. Now you must realize that there is a rainy season for the Caribbean and we took that into account. We were...

We were here at Christmas. Comfy beds, AC so cold it made the windows fog over, waves washing gently under the room, beautiful deck with a gorgeous view, and a constant parade of birds on our beach -- we had a yellow-crowned night heron, a great blue heron, pelicans, frigate birds, and several other birds whose names I didn't know....

Very small resort, Really good for snorkeling. We saw almost all angels, butterflies, eagle rays, nurse sharks, green morays among common Caribbean fish. Water is shallow, very comfortable pier to get into water. It's a menu style resort. Food is very good. Many thanks to Morris and Juan for their excellent service. Special thanks to Chef Chris for the recipe...
