A beautiful, well-run hotel with seriously delicious food. Such a relaxing stay. The only bad point is that the beach is quite narrow, but we mostly stayed by the pool anyway. Also, it was the time of year when seaweed washes up onto the beach which can look bad, but the workers at Matachica did an amazing job of clearing... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Matachica. We booked the Surf & Turf package with 4 nights at Matachica and 3 nights at Chaa Creek. It was exactly what we wanted, a perfect combination of beach and water activities along with a rainforest experience and tours of Mayan ruins. All transportation to Matachica and then to Chaa...

We chose Matchica for our honeymoon in Belize after reviewing a number of options in Ambergris Caye. We could not be happier with our choice! From our first moment of contact with a staff member to our departure, our experience was wonderful. Matachica takes the guesswork out of everything. We booked several excursions through the always-friendly front desk, including Lamanai... More

My husband and I loved our stay here, which was quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. The boat shuttle to and from the hotel is very convenient, especially because the hotel is a 20-30 minute boat ride from the main town. However, we found that we did not want to go into town all that often, as we would rather stay at... More

A very nice beachfront resort with individual "casitas" for the guests. Ours was beachfront and the breeze was nice; it also faced east, so the sunrise each day through the open shutters was great. There was a very good continental restaurant on the property. Food preparation was very well done and the seasoning complimented the local flavors. The bar and... More

we stayed here for 5 days with the Dive package! It was amazing. The staff, from the moment they pick you up, take care of you. The dining is THE best on the island. Pro Divers were amazing. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had! The spa was terrific. Pool table was lots of fun!

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and splurged on the honeymoon package as well. After arriving at the airport in San Pedro, we were picked up by Matachica staff and taken to the dock to wait for our water taxi. A quick 10 minute boat ride later, we arrived at the resort and were immediately handed a... More

We came to Matachica after spending time in the sister lodge, Gaia, in the forest area. Matachica is a true beach vacation, staying in thatched roofed huts with hammocks to relax in. The quality of the bedding was excellent, and it was luxurious to view the ocean while laying in the bed. Service was excellent at Matachica. While sitting on... More

An exhilarating fast boat trip takes you from San Pedro to the resort. The resort is very well organised with rows of bungalows, from beach front and then back and back. Ours was at the back facing the very large pool. 50 meters from the beach. Bungalows are very spacious, elegant and modern. Large bathroom and great bedding. Stylist artwork.... More
