This is a beautiful resort with great food, drinks, and staff. It's great but a bit formal. While speaking to another guest one night, I got a tip about Rojo Beach Bar next door. It's the best kept secret in Ambergris Caye. Israel is a bartender/DJ extraordinaire. Best playlist EVER!!! Rojo has resident dogs and amazing drinks and food. Try... More

We had lovely days in this hotel! The personnel was fantastic, always willing to help and make the stay unique. The food at Mambo was delicious. Highly recommended this place! Ask for a beach front villa!

Our overall experience at Matachica was great, and the staff were truly exceptional. We traveled with our two adult daughters, and each of our suites was comfortable and well attended. For an island resort, the food is also exceptional. I believe the resort was close to capacity, but we never felt crowded - even during a rainy day when there... More

Matachica is an upscale casual Belizean escape. All the rooms are individual thatched bungalow-style huts with hammocks on the front porches, private and romantic. We stayed in an oceanfront room, but the second row huts mostly have a view of the water and you can set up in any chairs on the beach. The service from start to finish was... More

I recently stayed at Matachica with my boyfriend for four nights and had an amazing experience. The staff was extremely attentive and welcoming and made us feel like Matachica was our second home. We scheduled several trips including diving, snorkeling and spa treatments without any problems. Our casita was beautifully decorated and air conditioned, which was a plus in August.... More

The resort is really an amazing place.. It all starts with the pick up by boat in san pedro, then being welcomed by a drink in the lobby.. The rooms are big and very well decorated (it actually is better than the website pictures) - the bed is just to die for ! Amazing sheets.. And the bonus : they... More

It was a nice vacation at Matachica. Staff was polite and cooperating. Superb front desk managers, I would specifically thank Anita. Activities are limited, but for a week you can arrange couple. Casitas are picturesque just they are shown on website. Please keep in mind though: - all you can see at Matachica website is what you get. Nothing more.... More

Matachica, Owner at Matachica Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Thanks very much for your review. I’m glad that you had an overall pleasant stay but I am of course disappointed that our vision didn’t quite resonate with you. Indeed, Matachica is all about romance and reconnecting with yourself and with your partner. It is about disconnecting from home for just a short while and finding yourself as you experience...
