After a personal recommendation of this hotel my wife and I and our 2 children (22 and 20) decided to visit Matachica during our summer vacations. We are from Mexico City and love to travel. Our ideal vacation is on a not so crowded place staying in nice hotels or properties. We try to avoid "all inclusive enormous complex" were...

My husband and I spent the first few days of our Belize adventure in the jungle, so we were ready to relax in the sun when we got to Matachica and we were not disappointed in the least. I was not interested in being one of hundreds of people staying at a loud resort, all fighting for chairs and prime...

We got burned by the good reviews for this place and their website and stayed in one of the "deluxe" beachfront casitas for 4 nights on our honeymoon at the end of June/beginning of July. The nicest thing about Matachica is that everywhere else we stayed in Belize seemed awesome by comparison. I do want to say that the staff...

My boyfriend and I recently visited Belize for a midweek getaway. We were so intrigued by the reviews of Matachica that we decided to just book our stay at this one place. Arrival Upon arrival the hotel was very courteous and prompt about getting us from the Tropic Air airport, even though we were early-somehow they knew. The staff who...

This is a top notch resort, with the best restaurant on the island, but the mosquitoes were ridiculous here compared to Coco Beach where we stayed the first part of our honeymoon at. I was told that they don't spray up here on this part of the island and they let the mangroves grow naturally in the back. However, this...

We stayed at Matachica for our honeymoon and it was perfect. It was the "wet" season but it never rained. We love our stay. Perfect honeymoon spot. 15 minutes into town by boat, but well worth it for the location and privacy. The staff is great and so is the food. Its a bit pricey but its worth it.

Our honeymoon started with three days at Matachica's sister hotel, Gaia River Lodge in the national parks of Belize. It was an incredible three days and we were quite active with hiking, canoeing, zip lining, etc. Matachica organized all of our transportation to and from airports to the resorts and between the resorts making it easy and stress free for...
