Quiet, secluded, beautiful. Food is amazing, service cannot get any better. If you are looking for a great getaway for two this is it. Make sure you get one of the 9 waterfront casitas. Try to eat every item on their menu. They are all outstanding.

From the moment we arrived on Ambergris Caye we were welcomed by Matachica employees. They took us by boat to the resort where we were met with a delicious drink (their drinks are very good). Our room was an awesome little hut complete with a hammock. We stayed in Coco which was more than big enough but we did not...

My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon in Belize. We spent the first half of our trip in the rainforest area and then went to San Pedro on the Ambergris Caye and stayed at Matachica for the second half of our stay. It was fantastic. The service was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The casitas...

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my 50th birthday and Matachica delivered in a VERY big way. The setting is completely outstanding. The beachfront casitas are even more beautiful in person than in the photos. They are very private and amazingly clean despite all the sand. An incredibly romantic setting. The staff was SO attentive. From the...

We stayed here as part of the reef and rainforest honeymoon package. Although the weather wasn't ideal, we had an amazing time. We were free to use their kayaks, paddle boats and stand up paddle boards to explore the reef that was less than 1 km from shore. The crystal clear water was as warm as any I have ever...

The resort was amazing! The staff were really friendly and helpful. We were at the beachside casita and the room was beautiful. We did the snorkeling tour with the resort and that was awesome! The restaurant was okay but the food in town was so much better. We took advantage of the boat rides into town few times and ate...

My wife and I just celebrated our honeymoon there. The people were friendly and helpful, the food tasty and resort beautiful. We stayed at 2 other resorts on the trip in different cities in Belize and loved this one. It was unusually very windy when we were there, so the beachfront casita wasn't a great idea. The rooms a little...

My wife and I recently returned from a 7 night honeymoon at Matachica and WOW what an experience. The hotel is so secluded and private, it's exactly what we wanted. The honeymoon package is GREAT! We got a delicious breakfast everyday as well as dinner (which included 2 apps, 2 entrees, 2 desserts AND a bottle of wine). We stayed...

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at Matachica . Truly loved the resort. We stayed in the Cherry Casita which was perfectly placed near the pool and one row of casitas away from the beach. Our room could not have been more comfortable and beautifully decorated. I can remember feeling like we were the only ones there, it...

My husband and I just spent a week enjoying Matachica. We couldn't have been happier there. Since we chose Matachica based on reviews I want to gush for prospective guests. First, the atmosphere was beyond beautiful. We stayed in Plum, right on the beach. It was perfect, beautiful, airy, comfortable. With our doors open we could see the beach from...
