Had a phenomenal time on our recent honeymoon. Staff was very attentive and fostered a "no worry" environment. The rooms and grounds were very clean and beautiful. Would definitely come back and stay!

Hotel's Favourite
We just got back from celebrating our 20th anniversary at this little gem in beautiful Belize. We cannot say enough good things about this resort, and absolutely hope to return. The resort is beautiful and extremely well maintained. It is a low key boutique setting with a relaxed island vibe and an emphasis on service and attention to detail. We stayed in a seaside casita and the view from our room was spectacular. Loved the nightly turn down service and the romantic, caribbean themed rooms. Other than the view and overall relaxing ambiance of the resort, highlights included a 1/2 day of reef fishing (where the chef prepares what you catch) and a resort snorkel trip to the marine preserve and shark ray alley. Fabulous snorkeling included multiple spotted eagle rays, an eel, nurse sharks and endless beautiful fish and coral. The staff at Matachica is top notch - attentive, friendly, and always smiling. We thought we would venture out and try other island restaurants, but we wound up eating almost every meal at the Mambo restaurant onsite because it was just that good. Delicious happy hour cocktails at Danny's Tree Bar capped off every afternoon. The resort's slogan that "the world can wait" perfectly sums up our experience at this tiny slice of paradise!

We booked the reef and rainforest pkg and I’ve already written the Gaia review. The Matachica portion of the trip was great. The view is spectacular and the staff warm and friendly. Unfortunately we had the seaweed present the whole time we were here and it is truly unpleasant, however the staff was doing their best to remove it and I certainly cannot blame them for Mother Nature. Our villa accommodation was lovely with a rooftop deck and hot tub and two bedrooms, much more than we were expecting. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Meal service was attentive and Alito was an excellent waiter in the Mambo restaurant. Food was sometimes slow to arrive but I was in no hurry so that wasn’t a problem. The food was excellent at every meal. When on a package an itinerary on arrival would be helpful but I figured everything out. The only suggestion I would make is that the bathrooms and living area could benefit from AC, it gets pretty warm, but we truly had a wonderful week.

From the moment you step off the plane and you're greeted by the friend staff to whisk you off to your private boat to take you to the resort you know you're in for a luxurious stay. Matachica's beach front cabanas are private and full of luxury. The hammock on the porch allows for relaxing in the cool Caribbean breeze. The staff is topnotch like at their sister resort Gaia. The food is also excellent with two restaurants to choose from, Mamba and The Bistro, there are plenty of options. The pool is warm and relaxing. The location is perfect, tucked away and private, but an easy golf cart ride to Secret Beach and San Pedro. The snorkeling provided by the resort was excellent and the on-site guide was very knowledgeable. To miss Matachica and Gaia while visiting Belize would be a big mistake!

This is without a doubt the best place to stay in San Pedro! I took my girlfriend down on a surprise trip to propose. I contacted the staff and they helped me plan my proposal and it was beyond my wildest expectations. The staff, food and accommodations are world class. We love Matachica and we will be back ASAP!!!
