“This is Isla Bonita at its best!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Matachica far exceeded our expectations. The staff were plentiful, friendly and extremely hospitable. If there were awards for the most charming accommodations, this place would win! Every cabana has a view of the beach (at least slightly), is tastefully appointed and has air conditioning that works great. When we visited, it felt like there was no one there, so we had the beautiful beach all to ourselves. Matachica made it so easy to go into the main San Pedro town, with a free shuttle boat that left at various times throughout the day. We would definitely recommend staying here vs. right in San Pedro town if you want romance, ambiance, and a little seclusion. The food was also fantastic. Very fresh and well-seasoned. Matachica really gets it about customer service and creating a retreat away from it all (even though a shuttle boat to town only took 15 minutes). There amenities were great...from a gorgeous swimming pool and jacuzzi, always enough lounge chairs on the beach, turn-down service in the evening, and even great massage therapists at the spa. If you're visiting San Pedro, stay at Matachica. You won't regret it.

My husband and I had an amazing stay here for 3 nights. Love the lounge chairs in the water, hammocks outside the cabana, private tour of Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley, and complimentary bikes, kayaks and paddle boats.

I was looking for a book in San Pedro, and when I couldn't find it at the bookstore, one of the ladies at reception said she had it and would bring it to me the next day to read. Now, that's service!

Room Tip: All are great. Not sure the extra cost for "beachfront" is really worth it.

Second time in two years and I think it is even better! No place better to relax. The wi-fi access in the bar is nice. Great way to catch up on email before dinner. Next year we will do the combo trip beginning with five sister falls rain forest resort ending with Matachica. Perfect.

Room Tip: Pineapple casita is situated perfectly on the beach.

Dearest staff at Matachica:
You have captivated my heart with your genuine warmth and excellent service. You exceeded my expectations from the moment I arrived at the dock of your resort. Thank you for your unparralleled hospitality. I will remember you always.

Note to traveler:
Matachica is the hidden jewel of Belize with it's white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and swaying palm trees located on a secluded beachfront facing the second largest barrier reef. I reserved a sea breaze suite and loved the pomegranite casita assigned to me. The food was amazing! I don't even eat fish but it's all I ate at the Mambo restaurant located at the resort. In fact, a group of 20 people from France arrived at Mambo just to have their wedding reception dinner while I was there. One of our friends left the resort to have dinner at Portofino's one night, and they came back to Mambo for dinner after appetizers at the other restaurant. The other restaurants do not compare to the high quality and distinctive menu at Mambo on Matachica. Escape the ordinary and head to Matachica resort & spa. You will not regret a visit to this serene and natural resort with it's relaxed attitude and barefoot luxury. I never felt compelled to leave the resort and only left for my tour of the Mayan ruins at Lamanai (by plane and a boat ride down the New River). Thank you Matachica.

~ Ms. Patricia and Mr. David

P.S. Do remember to bring plenty of sunscreen and insect repellent. It's a must if you visit the cayes or the Mayan ruins.

Beauiful beach, tremendous privacy, awesome service, and great food. If you can afford it, this is the best resort on Amgergris Caye.
