Overall we enjoyed our visit to Blackbird Caye......Let's start with saying the positives .... The island managers Brendan and Bernie as well as the rest of the staff were great .... Very personable !!! Nice to have close dive sites as an option which allowed for more relaxing and rest between dives as we were able to go back to...

Blackbird is not a luxury resort, but it is wonderful. We stayed in a deluxe cabana which had plenty of room, a comfortably soft bed, lots of cubbie and drawer space, a private porch complete with chairs and hammock and no shortage of hot water. Housecleaning did a great job and I really appreciated the turn down service. At first,...

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Blackbird and I cannot recommend this Resort enough! From the moment Mr. Moreno meets you at the airport to being dropped off after your trip, everything is well planned and easy. I get stressed about how hard it will be to find a guide or not knowing what to expect,...

We spent a week here in mid February. Even though we were expecting to see more sea life, we enjoyed the diving. The coral is very healthy, and the dive staff were very congenial and service-oriented. This is a small island and resort, I would classify it as a 3.5-star if there was such a rating (accommodation was nice but...

We loved every minute of our vacation. All the staff from the housekeeping to the dive master are so nice and helpful. This was our 2nd time at Blackbird and it was just as great as the first time. We love it.

Limited things to do. Owners were not personable. Schedule too rigid for meals. Poor quality meals. Very expensive to drink and eat outside of designated meals. No way to leave the island and explore the mainland. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your recent stay with us at Blackbird Caye. We don’t want a guest to feel surprised once they reach the resort, so when they book a trip to Blackbird Caye, regardless of the method, our reservations agents reach out and explain details about the resort: its location, remoteness, meal service, available activities etc. upon which, if a...

We came for the diving, and left feeling relaxed with over 200 Go Pro Videos. All of the diving was within 15 minutes of the island, some as close as 5. There is something to be said for going back home in between dives and regrouping. The overall experience left us wanting more. Such a great time. This by no...

You’re absolutely right – we’re a dedicated dive resort offering a very unique experience on a beautiful tropical island, and we couldn’t be more proud to do so. As you’ve seen we have world class diving within minutes of your beachfront cabana, and your 200 (wow!!) videos will no doubt bring back great memories. By the way – if you...

Excellent experience from the time of pickup at the hotel to departure and everything in between. Manager husband/wife team exceptional and staff excellent as well. Diving was excellent, the best we've ever had in the Caribbean. Being on Turneffe Atoll assured us that we would be in a quiet, diver friendly resort. We will return!

We love reading reviews where guests have enjoyed their entire stay! Turneffe Atoll is a very special place and we look forward to sharing it each and every day. As you’re aware there is just too much here to see and in one trip (especially dive sites) so we do hope you’ll come back again.

Great place to go if you are looking to scuba or snorkel. Not a fancy place, but a great place to relax. All the dive spots are about 10 minutes away. Very low key resort with friendly staff. Food is very good, not great.

We are indeed a low key, laid back resort and we don’t pretend to be anything else. There are places all over the world where the beaches are teaming with people with huge resorts properties nearby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blackbird Caye is a privately owned Island sitting on The Mesoamerican Reef System - often referred to as the "Jewel of the Caribbean" - it is the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere with a rich tapestry of vivid corals, mangrove forests, coastal wetlands, and diverse marine wildlife. Within the reef you will find Turneffe Atoll the Caye where the resort is located. Turneffe is the largest and most biologically diverse of the 3 atolls found in the Caribbean home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, and more than 500 species of fish, manatees, dolphins and invertebrates. There are over 70 dives sites all within 10-15 minutes from the resort and 45 minutes to Lighthouse Reef where The Great Blue Hole is located. The resort is made of 19 modern cabanas facing the Caribbean Sea and 1 beach house. The cabanas are all equipped with A/C, fans, private bathrooms, either King or Queen Beds with new comfortable bedding, private porches with chairs and swinging hammocks. Included in the price are your cabana, 3 daily meals, dive or snorkel package, complimentary transfers to the island on Wednesdays and Saturdays and use of the resort's kayaks. We are the only resort on Turneffe with an air strip making it convenient to arrive or depart any other day of the week.
