We recently returned to Matachica and had another wonderful stay. Our Beachfront Casita (Watermelon) was well appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. It is quiet, private and 20 steps from the water. The restaurant and bar are very good. The food is delicious, well prepared and served with a smile. Most of the time we had either Sam or Abby as...

Just got back from five great nights at Matachica in Amergris Caye. About 20 large beautiful air conditioned villas, many on the beach or with a view of the water. Wonderful staff who couldnt do enough for us and always with a smile. Food was very good and the dining area beautiful. The hotel provides boat service to San Pedro...

Mata Chica is the perfect hideaway for those who want isolation. It is too far from town and bars, restaurants and nightlife. they do offer boat rides in but only when fitting with pickups with arriving or departing guests. Otherwise you must take and adhere to local water taxi. That said - rooms perfect. Staff fabulous. Menu could be better...

This is a romantic resort with a wonderful beach atmosphere. The pool is amazing; the bungalows are charming. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Snorkeling on the reef in front of the hotel was one of the many things we loved at this resort. We used the provided kayak, life vests, and snorkel gear to paddle out 20 minutes...

We were thrilled with Matachica for the "beach" part of our Belize trip. We found it populated with many couples, mostly in 20s & 30s as well as enough older couples so that we didn't feel out of place with our 50-ish grey hair! Some families with teen or older kids were also around. Overall the vibe is low key....

Nicely situated north of most San Pedro hotels. Small strip of beach, but very well kept. The villas are big, windows are all outfitted with wooden slatted blinds. This is a self-contained resort, which is good because there is no other place nearby you would want to visit. Three meals a day served in the main lodge (all very good)...

Took the boat from Fido's north to the resort on Valentines Day for a pre-arranged day for 4 couples. The resort staff was ALL incredible. Warm, welcoming, friendly service all day. We arranged our day with Burga who went above and beyond! Sam and Ever kept us hydrated. Our dinner was delicious and the spa staff exceeded our expectations! Thank...

From the moment you arrive the experience begins! The captain as well as a few other members of the Matachica staff where at the airport to greet us. It’s a 15 minute boat ride to the resort where there is a complementary drink waiting for you and a group of warm, friendly Matachica Staff to greet you upon arrival…A FABULOUS...

There is no aspect of this small, intimate hotel that is not tended to with unbelievable care, and the result is a first class resort. Ambergris is a beautiful spot and Belizeans in general are welcoming, warm and very proud of their nation but this particular hotel is run with a level of taste, professionalism, and individual attention that is...
