Honeymoon for active early 30's couple. 7 days mid October 2021. Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Accommodated our request. Taco the dog was great too! Grounds were clean/gorgeous. Very private and relaxing. Beach was clean, staff cleaned sargassum 2x per day. Area off dock to jump in with no seaweed that worked great for us. Eagle rays and dolphins feed around the dock in the am. Location by reef was amazing/easy to kayak to. Saw a ton of marine life there. Luna room was beautiful with great AC. I've never felt so relaxed actually. I've never seen my husband sleep for more than 6-7 hours, and he slept for 10+ hours 3 times this trip!! Food was AMAZING. 12/10 on food. I still dream of the chicken sandwich and fresh pastries. Cons: Mosquitos, we will not be

Staff was amazing! Food was great!!! However, if you are looking for a resort on a “true beach” this is not it. Beach is filled with seaweeds. Staff does a great job trying to clean it daily, However, the issue is persistent. Beautiful beach is close by. 20 mins by golf cart. Rooms was great! If you want a full sea view be sure to book a beach front… everything else is partial.

Response from DANIEL LIGHTER, Owner at Matachica Resort
Responded 18 Oct 2021
Thanks very much for your review. While it is true that we do indeed occasionally suffer from an influx of Sargassum Seaweed, our beach is typically very clean, beautiful and very much a ‘true beach’. The property also faces one of the planet’s most precious barrier reef system with magnificent marine life to enjoy. Unfortunately, it sounds as though you may have stayed with us during one of those periods where the seaweed was plentiful and annoying. I’m sorry that it took away from your experience but glad that our team worked hard to remove it as best they could. Warm Regards, Daniel

My wife and I came to Matachica for our honeymoon in need of rest, relaxation, and some time together. This was such an amazing trip we cannot imagine coming back to Belize and staying anywhere else. The staff was kind, attentive, and beyond hospitable. I want to call out a few staff members in particular: -Will helped us with every question we had, regarding golf cart rentals, flight changes, and restaurant recommendations. He went above and beyond every single time. -Jordi and I chatted about scuba sites and helped us procure some rice from the kitchen to try to save our camera from water damage. -Alessandro was the first and last person we saw from Matachica and kept us smiling as we arrived and departed... if only we didn't have to leave! I wish I remembered more names but

I have wanted to go to Belize for 30+ years and when I finally went it did not disappoint. The staff at this resort were so kind and polite and genuinely seemed to care that we had a superb experience. We had an ocean front casita and awoke to an amazing sunrise every morning. The food was soooooo yummy. We went on an all afternoon snorkeling trip with a fun crew and other equally fun passengers. We owe a big thanks to Henry, Willie, Jordy, Amy and all the other amazing staff whose names I did not get yet made our trip memorable. I want to try their sister propery Gaia next!

I would return to this resort. The staff were so helpful, the grounds and rooms are well kept, and they were accommodating with my vegan meal request. I was able to order real meals vs a salad. The staff communicated thoroughly and were able to address any "problem" I had.
