Hotel is a small but friendly place. The rooms aren't huge, but the view is fantastic (I got an ocean view room). The staff was friendly and helped book me a few snorkel tours for me as well as get a taxi for me on my way out. Room cleaniless was definitely top notch, though i recommend a good bottle... More

Overall not bad. Rooms are clean, they have a cute little bar, a bathtub size pool, and a nice beach with lots of sea grass. The bartenders are not friendly at all. I have not seen them smile or try to interact with a guest once while I stayed there. Hotel is about 20 minutes walk from downtown.

I stayed at Mata Rocks at the end of the slow season/start of the busy season. I searched and searched not knowing anything about the town. It was for our honeymoon and they only had the balcony room available for part of our stay so we stayed poolside. They did not offer to upgrade at any point. The prior visitors... More

Stayed 4 nights at Mata Rocks and it was a wonderful experience. Very nice rooms, most with an ocean view balcony. Far enough away from the heart of San Pedro to avoid the hustle and bustle but only a short golf cart or bike ride away. Nice clean beach and pool conveniently located next to the small beach bar where... More

This is not a true resort, so if that's what you're looking for this is not the place. But this hotel is amazing. It's right on the beach with a nice (though small) pool.

Smaller resort located about 10-15 minutes away from the water taxi terminal. Rooms were nice and had beautiful views. They work with a number of tour operators as well so if you want to do any tours (i.e. snorkeling in Shark/Ray Alley, Diving at Blue Hole, etc), they will come via boat and pick you up right at the dock....
