My husband and I went here for 5 days after spending 4 days at Matachica's sister property, Gaia, as part of our honeymoon. We had such a great time at both locations! Matachica was busier, but still felt pretty quiet and relaxing. We upgraded to a beachfront cabana, which was great because we had two reserved lawn chairs right outside... More

My husband and I recently returned from a 4-night stay at Matachica, and it exceeded our expectations! We stayed in a Deluxe Beachfront Casita, and I'm glad that we decided to spend a little extra to be beachfront. As I read in other reviews, there is more of a breeze, and I think that helped reduce the mosquitoes as well.... More

Chose Matachica resort after reading many reviews as our vacation spot without our children. It exceeded our expectations! The first thing we noticed was the attentiveness of the staff and the cleanliness of the resort and casitas. Then the - quiet... Oh how lovely the silence was! It was perfect getaway for my husband And I. The continental breakfast was... More

We went here for our honeymoon in the down season (early August 2015 for 5 nights)- knowing it would be a more remote, relaxing type place. The resort itself is top notch! From the service,staff (special shout out to Reymundo, Adam, and Amy), to the cleanliness, and AMAZING food/drinks- we couldn't of been happier. We are experienced travelers, and this... More

San Pedro is a sliver of sand tucked in behind a coral reef and covered in thick mangroves. All along its perfect, sheltered coastline are a string of hotels and Matachica is one of the smallest and sweetest. Little more than a clutch of thatched cottages on stilts, it is reached by means of a speedboat ride up the coast... More

We could write a novel on the Matachica as having just returned from our third visit, but in a word, "epic" seems most fitting. So much so, that we chose Matachica as the location for our wedding and honeymoon. Exclusive, secluded, romantic, sexy, luxurious. When approached with our request, Ms. Pattinson literally took the idea and ran with it. She... More

Just returned from 5 days at Matachica. I echo other reviewers sentiments on the exceptional quality of the food and accomodations, but most particularly on the personal hospitality of the service. They all know and address you by name, the bartenders are stellar, and the wait staff bend over backwards to make sure you are comfortable. We loved our "Watermelon"... More

Matachica was the perfect conclusion for our honeymoon. After a 10 minute boat ride to the resort, we got to see our amazing villa. We were in Apricot and impressed with the Belizean style, cleanliness, and comfort of the room. We enjoyed spending time on the hammock on our front porch. There were a number of other guests at the... More

We spent our honeymoon here and at the sister resort Gaia Riverlodge and had an amazing time. We were picked up at the San Pedro Airport by an employee who golf carted us to the dock where the boat was waiting to take us to the resort. We went up the coast about 10 minutes. Everyone there was super friendly... More

We stayed in Portofino hotel in Ambergirs Caye but ate nearly every evening in the Mambo restaurant of the Matachica resort - what a super place to eat!! great food and excellent service for an honest price - far better than the Portofino restaurant !
