My husband and I stayed at Matachica as a part of the "Reef and Rainforest Honeymoon" package and it was absolutely incredible! Having all the travel arranged for us by the resort and arriving by boat just felt so exciting, it was a first for us. The staff are what make this place so special, I am sure I might leave someone out and I apologize but, Eduardo, Edwin, Alfredo, Ami, Anita, Archie, Chris, Emil, and so on, you are all amazing people and it was a pleasure to meet and chat with you all. I love the option of renting a golf cart and getting out to explore, we really enjoyed heading into town and then hitting up "secret beach" afterwards, which is a must! Mambo restaurant has so many delicious options for each meal of the day, I especially appreciate having smoothies as an option for breakfast, the fish tacos were ridiculously good and the Mambo Carpaccio was my favorite. Reading the negative reviews make me honestly laugh, you have to have a pretty lame outlook on life and travel to complain about this country/resort. The country was rugged and beautiful and the beach was clean and full of endless marine life entertainment. The Hol Chan/Shark Ray snorkel tour was amazing, Chris was the best guide! The only thing that could have made the resort any better would have been a fire pit to congregate after dinner and meet fellow resort goers, but perfect either way! Leaving was tough but we certainly plan on going back!

Went to Matachica for our honeymoon Nov 2018 and booked the rain forest and beach package with their sister resort Gaia Lodge. We absolutely loved it! While at Matachica we had an amazing time snorkeling and then making lunch from the fish we caught reef fishing! Everyone at both places were so friendly, and the food was amazing! I would highly recommend both resorts. I wish I could go back right now!

Where do I start?! First off this property is gorgeous! If you’re looking for paradise, do not look any further! The casitas, the lobby, the spa, the pool, every area is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully designed. It is SPOTLESS, the staff work around the clock to keep it in pristine condition. As for the staff, they are all extremely friendly, thoughtful and work hard to make sure your experience is special. Shout out to the best bartenders Alfred, Adam, Eduardo, and Edwin! We had so much fun chatting with them every night. Jordy brightened our every morning with his friendly demeanor and smile! Ernesto and Alessandro made our boat trips extra fun with their eagerness to chat and tell us all about Belize! Every single staff member was a pleasure to interact with! If you are shying away from this property because you are afraid of some bugs, DON’T. Are there bugs? Yes, it’s a tropical island. But you get over them the second you take a sip of your made from scratch craft cocktail and stare at the crystal clear water from your cabana. Bring some bug spray and you’ll be fine. If you run out, the staff have plenty more and work hard to spray the property regularly. The food is absolutely delicious and everything is made from scratch. Some of the best food we have ever enjoyed on a tropical vacation! Matachica is secluded enough that you feel relaxed, but not too far that you can’t get to San Pedro by a quick boat ride or Secret Beach by a short golf cart ride. All in all, I would 100% recommend this resort to any family member or friend. It was an absolutely fabulous experience! Thank you for making my birthday so special!
