I visited Matachica for lunch during a recent trip to Ambergris. I had heard good reports of the restaurant and was not disappointed. Great food and amazing service. The decor is a wonderful mixture of Asian and traditional Belizean. Although I did not stay there, the facilities appeared to be very nice. I highly recommended Matachica Resort.

Walk out your front door and have sand between your toes. Beautiful beach with the reef a short kayak trip away. I look forward to returning soon to do more diving in the area. The huge pool is never crowded and the temperature is always right. We had some of the best food we've ever eaten in their restaurant.

We came just as they reopened from a Hurricane. Unfortunately they lost their signature peer in the storm, but the rest of the resort is in fine shape Our room,Aqua, was large and right on the beach. The a/c never seemed to get cold enough. The resort staff are very polite and efficient. We enjoyed a massage and it was...

We stumbled onto this out of the way resort while on a golf cart ride to the Secret Beach. Were delighted to find such a world class restaurant at the end of a five mile golf cart ride. The lunch was delicious and the wait staff were very professional and helpful. The restaurant is located on a beautiful white sandy...

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...

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...

My husband and I just returned from our 7 day honeymoon in Ambergris Caye and we stayed at Matachica. We left with our expectations being met and exceeded in every way possible. What a 5 star place!

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...

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....
