We had the most wonderful experience at Gaia and Matachica for our honeymoon. Most everything was paid for in our package, including travel, excursions, most food, and some drinks. The staff was so friendly, personable, helpful, and knowledgeable about Belizean culture. The location and amenities were perfect. We are so grateful for our experience and highly recommend to everyone we know!

Spent a week here for the first time in Belize. Bungalow style rooms were great and service from all the staff was friendly and accommodating. The speedboat ride from the airport was especially cool. Everything on the island is accessible with a golf cart rental so don't be concerned that you're 'too remote' here. With that said, just beware that the prices here are very steep. It's high-end USD prices for all the food, drinks, and excursions. Even driving into San Pedro you'll find everything at half of what Matachica charges. I'm not knocking the rating for this, they can charge whatever they want, just be aware.

Everyone from Geo with online reservations to Wil, Jennifer and Gaby at the front desk to Rosa and Liza with Housekeeping to Amie and the other restaurant staff to Elliot ensuring all things work properly to Elessandro and Chris with water activities to Lilian at the Jade spa, my stay was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! They are one of the MOST accommodating staff I've ever encountered. Job went lobster diving, got lobster and allowed me to have 1 for dinner. I kayaked out with the crew for moral support and why not. The chef prepared my lobster and it was oh so delicious. This was my first time to Belize and what fond memories have been made. Thank you all. Also they have a lovely energetic Labrador retriever puppy,Taco, that I enjoyed as well. Thank you for making my stay at Matachica

Overall, the property is beautiful and impeccably kept. The staff is very attentive and went out of their way to ensure we had all we need and made suggestions to enhance our stay. Consider some type of live entertainment in the evening. Also, step up the mosquito control efforts. lastly, greater lighting an the entrance to the property.
