Matachica Resort is truly a divine resort that looks like the picture when you arrived. The staff is always welcoming. Actually, we had been there 10 years ago. We were also amazed by the coral reef and all the sea life just 15 minutes way from the shore by paddling boat.
That’s why we booked again 6 nights in spring 2018.
The big disappointment was the stinking seaweed. In addition, it made the sear water brown within 100 meters from the shore. Unfortunately, most of the sea life was gone. The staff tried to collect it in part from the sand on the beach. Note that in other resorts it was not the case and the smell was unbearable. That’s why the nearby resorts had next to no guests and there was no alternative for restaurants between Matachica and San Pedro. Unfortunately there’s no free shuttle boat to or from San Pedro in the evening. Therefore, we had dinner every night at Matachica. Food was excellent but did get a little repetitive, they have the same menu every night.
Another big nuisance was the sandflies: they always will find you and bite, no matter what and how much insect repellent you put. After a couple of days, the repellents and anti-itching creams do not seem to work anymore.More
