We were a group of seven and one of us (my mother) is handicapped. She walks with a cane and has a very difficult time with stairs. Matachica is definitely not for the handicapped. There are stairs everywhere and I mean everywhere so if you have a hard time with stairs, pick another location. None of the stairs have hand...

Had a fantastic time at the Matachica. Everyone who works there was friendly and went out of their way to make this a memorable and relaxing vacation. Ate dinner at the restaurant every night--yes, it is a bit pricey but the food was good. Service was fantastic. The included breakfast was more than enough for us every day. We went...

We just had an amazing vacation at the Matachica Resort & Spa last week, it was probably one of the best vacations we've had to just relax, decompress, and get off the grid for a week. The staff was wonderful, very attentive, and helped with all our tours to the Mayan ruins on the mainland, fishing, snorkeling, etc. The web...

I can't begin to describe how wonderful, relaxing, fantastic, etc., etc., this resort is. We were there for a week celebrating our 30th anniversary and barely left the property because there's so much to do - Matachica itself is a destination. You can read all the wonderful reviews (I agree with them all) so I won't repeat what they've all...

We stumbled upon this hotel by chance -- we were late in making Spring travel plans, and this was the only hotel that had a two bedroom suite available. We were traveling with our 13-year-old and had the Villa house. It is an elevated house, with two bedrooms, two full baths, two screened in porches, a living room/kitchen, and a...

Matachica was just right for our needs, and we spent a brilliant week there in March. We wanted a resort that was on the smaller side and Matachica fit that bill just right. We also wanted a location that was not too far from San Pedro that getting to town or scuba shops would be a problem. Nor was it...

We went to the Matachica for our honeymoon and got one of their packages that included several nights at the Gaia Riverlodge, their sister resort in the mountains. The Matachica handled everything, setting up a flight from Belize City to San Pedro, picking us up at the airport, and boating us to the resort. It took awhile to get all...

Matachica is the perfect place to be if you truly want to relax. You will meet lots of people from all over the world, or you can stay to yourself, but I'm guessing after a day or so, you won't want to. The staff is spot on. They seem to guess your every need. From meeting you personally with your...
