Matachica is memorable in so many ways. Upon arrival the friendly staff had a cocktail ready and waiting, great way to start the holiday. Our beach bungalow was about 100 feet from the beach and perfect and clean in everyway and plenty of space with a hammock right out the front. The bed was comfortable and I slept so well... More

Stunning hotel with beautiful rooms and beach front location. The transfer from the airport to the hotel with welcome drink on arrival was excellent, the room was gorgeous and so was our stay! Why people want to swim in the pool when there's the caribbean, I will never understand, but there we go. The hotel runs complimentary boat rides into... More

My wife and I researched resorts on Ambergris Caye, Belize for weeks. We decided on Matachica Beach Resort and we were more than satisfied. Here's why: Right from the start, we knew this vacation was going to be perfect. We were greeted by Henry at the airport who was very nice and made us feel very comfortable from the start.... More

I'm trying to avoid overused words like "paradise", and "perfect", but that may be impossible.  Our first foray into Central America was both an adventure, and the trip of a lifetime.  Matachica was a huge part of that.  I could prattle on and on about the impressive staff, and probably will, later.  I could literally talk your ears off about...

We were referred to Mata Chica Resort by a good friend. Not only were we not disappointed, it was even better than we had expected. The property is great, only 24 casitas - no riding down elevators or walking a mile to get to the pool or beach. Everything is close but yet private. We stayed in the Beach Front... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Matachica resort for a romantic getaway and it was terrific! The accommodations are unbeatable. We stayed in a pool view "casita" and immediately felt at home. I had quite a bit of email correspondence prior to arrival with a wonderful woman named Burga Pattinson who was friendly, courteous, and very much on top... More

We are sold...Matachica will be "the" place we go back to for years to come! The staff was so attentitve to detail and always had smiles on their faces (especially Ruben, who took exceptional care of us from day one!). Our snorkeling trip, which they book for you, was the BEST snorkeling in the world... mainly because our tour guide,... More

Matachica is a slice of paradise you have to experience to appreciate. Colorful casitas with thatched roofs line the turquoise Caribbean beachfront--beautiful from the outside and luxuriously appointed inside. More beautiful casitas frame the serene infinity pool, and larger villas offer families an authentic Belizean home away from home (my family split up between a casita for me and my... More

I researched honeymoon places for four months. When I finally came across Matachica my mind was made up. After experiencing the most amazing 7 days on a vacation, I am beyond pleased with our decision to choose Matachica! Besides literally the most amazing food, comfortable rooms, the view, the activities and all the romantic hammocks, the staff is what made... More
