Matachica resort is five miles north of San Pedro airport. You are met at the airport, whisked thru a honky tonk downtown area by golf cart to a waiting boat which brings you to the resort. A fun trip. The accommodations are very nice. Bathrooms and rooms clean. Beds comfy. The area seemed to be very conscious and concerned with...

We stayed here in March 2014 for three nights. We wanted a best quality room and tried to book a Deluxe Beachfront for the whole time, but settled to switch on the final night for a regular Beachfront for the last night. Really, although the Deluxe was a bit larger (mainly in the bathroom and storage areas), we were just...

My husband and I stayed here March 2-9th. It was the best resort we have stayed at! The staff went over and beyond, the dining was fabulous! The casitas were very pretty, clean and comfortable. Kayaking, snorkeling and floating down the river thru the caves were all wonderful. When we left we felt that we had made true friends. We...

My wife and I just returned from a week at Matachica to celebrate her birthday. We both heartily believe that the resort is a unique experience offering great food, lodging, rest and rejuvenation in probably the most friendly and accommodating atmosphere anywhere. We have traveled a great deal over the years staying at a number of great hotels and resorts....

I've traveled to 29 foreign countries. In many of them, I stayed in luxury hotels. But, I never enjoyed any as much as the 8-night stay that my wife and I experienced at Belize's Matachica Resort & Spa in January 2014. We opted for a deluxe beachfront casita. It was worth the extra money. Yet, no matter which lodging one...

This review is much overdue. We travelled to Matachica in June of 2013. It was our 10 year anniversary! I did a lot of research as to where to go in Belize and when I found this place and saw pictures and read reviews, although it was slightly out of our budget, we wanted a great vacation. So we went...

We recently returned to Matachica and had another wonderful stay. Our Beachfront Casita (Watermelon) was well appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. It is quiet, private and 20 steps from the water. The restaurant and bar are very good. The food is delicious, well prepared and served with a smile. Most of the time we had either Sam or Abby as...

Mata Chica is the perfect hideaway for those who want isolation. It is too far from town and bars, restaurants and nightlife. they do offer boat rides in but only when fitting with pickups with arriving or departing guests. Otherwise you must take and adhere to local water taxi. That said - rooms perfect. Staff fabulous. Menu could be better...
