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.

Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The staff from check in to check out were so pleasant and friendly. The breakfast at the bar is nice, but make sure you get there early or it gets pretty picked over. Pool was very pretty, the view was even better. I loved the hammocks that are hung out on the...

We stayed at Mata Rocks from 5/28 - 6/01 This was our first trip to Belize, so I'll try to cover the basics and give you the info I think would be helpful. We are pretty well traveled and reasonable people, so I hope this is useful to you. We stayed 4 nights south of San Pedro at Mata Rocks... More

As previously noted by other reviewed this is definitely not your five star luxury resort so if you are looking for that this is not your place. The hotel is outside of the busy center of town. You can take a half hour walk, take a 5 minute cab ride, or use the complimentary bikes provided by the hotel. The... More
