Staff was amazing and the service was great.Posted Jul 9, 2017
We had a great trip! Would go back to Matachica again. The hotel is right on the beach with great view from the hotel bar and grill.

Amazing beautifull resort!Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: The staff - so friendly and helpful. They all seem happy to work there and treat you as a special guest. Spa and restaurant are wonderful.
Cons: Nothing really other than it would be nice to have AC in the bathroom. AC in the room worked great.
Location: Great location on a quiet part of Ambergris Caye north of San Pedro. Quiet as it is for adults only. You can see the barrier reef from the hotel.
My husband and I stayed for 6 days and had a wonderful time. From the moment we booked until the day we left, the staff took care of everything- transport to and from the resort, cold drinks of our choice upon arrival, arranging our day trips and cooking our freshly caught fish. The staff knew us by name and what we liked. The pool is beautiful and we had a terrific experience with Mark as our tour guide for a day of zip lining and cave tubing and learned about Bellizean history and the flora and fauna along the way. Fishing and snorkeling are close by and you get picked up at the resort dock for that. There are many other outdoor activities you can book. Anything you want they say "no problem!" Take the turn down service every night because they close all your shutters and refresh what you might need. Insect repellant is in the room and was used daily. It is the tropics so you have to expect mosquitoes. We loved that we had our own private villa, like a home away from home. Try the spa services where you can get a great massage and various body treatments. We also loved that you get private guides when you book activities so you can do just what you want and don't have to do things with a group. The restaurant is excellent with plenty of seafood and other choices. Charlie the boat driver and Edwin and Alfrid and Archie in the dining room took good care of us along with many others whose names I cannot remember.

A Week In Heaven!Posted May 10, 2017
Pros: Staff, Service, Location, Room Accommodations, Food.
Location: I am a scuba diver and it was some of the best scuba diving I have experienced. The Blue Hole is a must dive! My wife enjoyed the beach.
For a relaxing and romantic escape it does not get better than this. This is one place my wife and I will have great memories of. The place really is a paradise. The grounds are beautiful and the accommodations were incredible. The staff here are more than incredible. They were all extremely friendly and helpful. From the moment that you arrive, the dock beckons you to jump in the turquoise water. Checking in was a breeze with drinks ordered ahead for your arrival. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to know the wonders of Belize.

Belizian BlissPosted Apr 21, 2017
Our 8-day stay at Matachica was perfectly delivered by the hotel and staff all throughout. From the Tropic Air transfer, private water taxi, pristine honeymoon-like room cleanliness, to the all the bar and meal services, the gracious staff nurtured us from the moment we landed to the our sad departure. Matachica truly boasts the most beautiful resort in all of Belize as well as their picture perfect pier and waterfront. We miss Matachica and will forever be grateful for a perfectly blissful vacation...

Top of the line resort in ParadisePosted Mar 23, 2017
Pros: 5-star service, stunning property
Cons: I got a sore throat from the mosquito coil burning in our room - please let guests know it will be burned ahead of time
Location: Snorkel tour of Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley, Tropic Air tour of Blue Hole, day trip to Caye Caulker w/ jet skis, San Pedro shopping & dining
If you want impeccable service, stunning views, and high-end accommodations, Matachica is your place! It takes a little planning to get back & forth to San Pedro for adventures and excursions, but climbing into a quiet, comfy cloud of white linens at the end of the day makes it all worthwhile. The staff is literally mancuring the grounds from sun up to sun down, and they are spectacular. This is definitely a spot for grown ups and families, not the party crowd. I'm glad I splurged for my birthday!
Beautiful but missing some evening entertainmentPosted Mar 15, 2017 on Hotels
Definitely a beautiful place for a relaxing break. Accommodation was excellent just missing some entertainment at nighttime and a reasonably priced bar. It's very quiet so great if you want to get away from it all.

Perfect secluded get awayPosted Nov 12, 2016
Pros: Everything was perfect, from the cold frozen drink waiting at our arrival, to the quiet, secluded, air conditioned hideaway. Very peaceful and quiet. Staff was amazing and attentive. English spoken fluently. Premium linens and bath accessories. If you are looking for a lively night life atmosphere or a family with kids kind of place--this is NOT it! Perfect, quiet, peaceful place for honeymoons and anniversaries. Kayaks, paddle boards, sailboats, life vests, and snorkeling gear provided free of charge and the barrier reef was less and 1/2 mile from the beach. Beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish. We snorkeled for three days and never saw the same thing twice! Water never got over 5 ft deep and the current was mild so I felt very comfortable as a beginner snorkeler. My photos can't do the resort justice. Visit their website--their photos reflect exactly what you will find when you arrive. Exquisite!
Cons: Having to leave (ha ha!). My husband did have trouble with mosquitoes at dusk but each room was provided with bug spray that was very effective. Cruiser bikes were provided but the road behind the resort was unpaved, full of potholes and swampy but that's not the resorts fault. Stick with the provided water taxi to get to San Pedro town.
Location: Secluded location. Scuba, snorkeling, swim with the sharks, cave tubing, zip line, rain forest & ancient ruins excursions available through resort
