Tha Mata Rocks was a very pleasant surprise - not only was it available on short notice, but it was situated between two, more expensive and larger, more crowded buildings that had much less of an ocean view or accessibility.
Mata Rocks is more like a family guest house than hotel.
It is beautifully maintained, someone is forever cleaning the little waterfall feature near the pool, raking the sand by the outside bar, sweeping away the rain water from the patio.
Included is pick up from the boat and continental breakfast.
Staff is very helpful - will arrange scuba, snorkeling, etc, or land trips to Mayan ruins, as well as make reservations for dinner - without being intrusive.
There is no restaurant as part of the hotel, which makes it more quiet and private.
The bar is on the beach, next to hammocks, beach chairs and loungers; sometimes the bar tender is also the "concierge" and they remember each guest and where they ate the night before or where they spent the previous day, always asking for feedback.
This was a real spot for a retful (or active) vacation, depending on the preference of the guest.
