Matachica is a great place with an amazing staff. There was some room for improvement, and it's definitely a place that is for some people and maybe not for others based on the type of trip you’re looking for and your expectations, but overall it's a great place and we had a great time. The good stuff first: - Great... More

This small collection of beach casitas is a gorgeous Caribbean paradise. It has a reputation online as being a romantic place for couples, and it is well-deserved. This place excels at customer service. The staff are all very friendly - more gregarious visitors than us were on a first-name basis with many employees. Getting to and from the airport requires...

The resort is beautiful! The service is excellent; the staff helpful, friendly and more than accommodating to your needs. Food, drink and circuses are what you would expect from a quality resort offering a great menu for any meal. Quiet and peaceful if you like, but offering great adventure should you choose to select from a number of activities in,... More

Having stayed at numerous locations throughout the Caribbean I can say without reservation that Matachica is the most outstanding resort I have encountered. Starting with the property itself. The grounds are well maintained constantly throughout the day. Even though we arrives one day after a tropical storm the grounds were largely clear of debris - cleaner than most of the... More

Just got back from 7 days/6 nights at Matachica celebrating our 15th anniversary. The resort was exactly what we were looking for: beautiful location, luxurious, great food, no party crowd, relaxing. Beautiful location: beautiful white sand beaches, aqua water with a beautiful reef to explore just off the resort. Ambergris Caye is incredibly beautiful and Matachica must be one of... More

I have traveled extensively throughout the US, Central and South America, and Europe and I can honestly say that Matachica is the #1 resort that I have ever stayed at....hands down. It is not the biggest or the fanciest resort, but that is what gives it the character, uniqueness, and experience that you are not going to find anywhere else.... More
