We loved Mata Rocks. We have been back to ambergris caye twice but did not stay there because it was full. We stayed in town this summer which made us love Mata Rocks even more. We did go back often to have a drink. It feels like home . The people that work there are friendly and interesting to talk... More

We were actually surprised by how small the room was when we first arrived and opted to upgrade to a "suite" as soon as possible which turned out to be 3 days after we arrived. We were much happier following that solution. I would suggest booking the Oceanview Junior Suite or better if you need more room especially in the... More

Great little place on the island of ambergris caye. Very helful staff in planning things to do. Breakfast included is fruit and sweet breads. Bikes available for free to use to get around the island. Close to town but far enough to be much quieter.

Great place with good friendly service. My suite was spacious & comfortable. Nice & quite - not a big resort, just rite. Will be staying there in the future. The resort doesn't have restaurant but does have the only bar outside. Breakfast served every morning with fresh orange juice, coffee, fresh fruit & toast/sweet bread. Met lots of nice people...

Small size and personalized service make Mata Rocks the perfect place for us! It's always clean and always fun. The Squirrel's Nest is the resort's beach bar and has everything you could ever need (as if you "need" anything while you're relaxing on a Caribbean beach). Creselda and Sherilyn are great fun and make the best rum punches on the... More

Rooms were pretty small. Hotel is a ways out of town, so plan on walking a lot or using the taxi (only $5 US each way). Bikes to check out for free. Pool was nice but very small. Beaches are not very big or clean. Lots of sea grass despite daily raking. Price is right. Staff is friendly and mostly... More

Very small rooms but very clean. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Booked flights, water taxis, scuba diving, car rental, and restaurant reservations. No restaurant on site but you can get hot dogs and meat pies at the bar. Out of 8 days, the wifi worked about 2 days. They work with Belize Dive Adventures which we rate very highly.

Learned quick that it's easy to overpay for a hotel in Belize. What I appreciated about Mata Rocks were a couple things: Santorini style hotel, friendly staff, intimate yet relaxing beach/pool atmosphere, and proximity to downtown. This is not a fancy hotel. This is a hotel that gives you everything you need for a great price. Staff helped arrange a... More

Hotel is very nice with beachfront and pool. It serves continental breakfast each morning. Rooms were light and airy and nicely cleaned each day. Hotel provides bicycles for guests or you can rent a golf cart from them. ( Main method of transportation in San Pedro.). Nice Tiki Bar.
