Beautiful resort. Designed for relaxation - a place to chill in absolute comfort and style. Beautiful clean beach with a quick kayak ride out to the reef for snorkeling. Casitas are so comfortable and private. Great pool. So many available excursions. We are vegan and gluten free and the chef did an incredible job making gourmet dishes around our diets. Breads, Deserts - were incredible.

After staying at the sister resort, Gaia, Matachica is more a normal beach resort feel. The staff are extremely friendly but you don't feel as much of a 1:1 as you do with Gaia, likely because there are more guests onsite and more activities to do offsite. But this does not take away from the resort at all. The food is slightly more expensive than elsewhere on the island, but nice when you don't want to travel for food.  Jordi was our server most of the time, he was great and extremely friendly.  The staff onsite were all very nice, notably Joe. I would chat with him daily.  Tons of mosquitos, but they provide bug spray and mosquito coils. Don't leave your room without it and also do a mosquito check the night before. The bug nets worked, I think. We stayed at the beach

Response from DANIEL LIGHTER, Owner at Matachica Resort

Thanks so much for your review and I am so glad that your experience with us was as positive as you have expressed. I am puzzled though with regards to your reference to my interaction with you. While another guest or perhaps a member of my staff might have met you, it was certainly not me! I had no such conversation with anyone and was quite taken by surprise by your message. Having said that, indeed we do ask that our guests use our designated fishing pier rather than the pier used by our guests to relax, read, sleep and enjoy the sun. While fishing for those who participate is lots of fun, others are oftentimes disturbed with the smell, mess, hooks, interference with quiet snorkeling and at times the excitement of the catch. It was for that reason that we set up a perfect spot on the northern pier, where fishermen/women can fish and then use our fish counter to prepare their catch for dinner. I'm so sorry about the confusion and while your interaction was not with me, and while we do very much encourage fishing on property, it is best done elsewhere than on our main guest lounge pier. I deeply regret that this interaction spoiled what seems like an otherwise wonderful holiday with us and hope that you offer us another chance to visit. Daniel Lighter, Owner

Everything was incredible from the rooms to the views, food, massages and excursions with Charlie. The beach was beautiful. We can’t wait to return someday. We felt like we had died and gone to heaven. Very personal service and extreme sweet staff.

My wife and I arrived by private boat after a beautiful plane ride over the country, to a great reception not only by resort staff, but by the owner of the hotel as well! Arriving at our room, the casitas overlooked the ocean and the room was designed for life in Belize and, in addition, was incredibly luxurious and comfortable. Whether we were kayaking, swimming with the sharks, jet skiing, taking a beautiful boat ride, walk on the beach or just relaxing by the pool, the staff is phenomenal and knew my name and my wife's name the 1st day. The menu had wide variety and you can tell that a great deal of thought went into it. For anyone looking for a place to relax and enjoy time with the one that you love, Matachica indeed is a vacation in paradise and we would very highly

We spent the first week of November at Matachica and absolutely loved it. The staff are exceptional in every way - Jose is a great bartender and was a joy to get to know! We took a private snorkel trip to Mexico Rocks and got to see a nurse shark, stingray, and eel. Our villa was the nicest one on the property and felt like home. The food was wonderful and we had just the right amount of activity and rest. So glad we didn’t let Covid keep us away. Can’t wait to go back!
