Went to Matachica for our honeymoon Nov 2018 and booked the rain forest and beach package with their sister resort Gaia Lodge. We absolutely loved it! While at Matachica we had an amazing time snorkeling and then making lunch from the fish we caught reef fishing! Everyone at both places were so friendly, and the food was amazing! I would highly recommend both resorts. I wish I could go back right now!

My husband and I enjoyed a morning breakfast at the resorts restaurant. During this time we got see dolphins and a beautiful sting ray. Just amazing, we love this place!! Something beautiful to see everyday here

Where do I start?! First off this property is gorgeous! If you’re looking for paradise, do not look any further! The casitas, the lobby, the spa, the pool, every area is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully designed. It is SPOTLESS, the staff work around the clock to keep it in pristine condition. As for the staff, they are all extremely friendly, thoughtful and work hard to make sure your experience is special. Shout out to the best bartenders Alfred, Adam, Eduardo, and Edwin! We had so much fun chatting with them every night. Jordy brightened our every morning with his friendly demeanor and smile! Ernesto and Alessandro made our boat trips extra fun with their eagerness to chat and tell us all about Belize! Every single staff member was a pleasure to interact with! If you are shying away from this property because you are afraid of some bugs, DON’T. Are there bugs? Yes, it’s a tropical island. But you get over them the second you take a sip of your made from scratch craft cocktail and stare at the crystal clear water from your cabana. Bring some bug spray and you’ll be fine. If you run out, the staff have plenty more and work hard to spray the property regularly. The food is absolutely delicious and everything is made from scratch. Some of the best food we have ever enjoyed on a tropical vacation! Matachica is secluded enough that you feel relaxed, but not too far that you can’t get to San Pedro by a quick boat ride or Secret Beach by a short golf cart ride. All in all, I would 100% recommend this resort to any family member or friend. It was an absolutely fabulous experience! Thank you for making my birthday so special!

We stayed at Matachica for 5 nights and it is hands down the best resort we’ve ever stayed at. It’s so peaceful and beautiful, the staff is wonderful, and the food at Mambo restaurant is delicious. We didn’t want to leave! I highly recommend staying at Matachica! We will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed here 7 days/7 nights for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. The resort is beautiful, the food was fantastic, and every staff member bent over backwards to make our stay as comfortable as it could be. Huge shoutout to some of our favorites: bartenders Edwin, Adam, Robin, Alfred, and Gilbert were all great! Nuri and Jenina were the best masseuses I have ever met. Emil, the activities coordinator, was so helpful and friendly. Amy and Jordy were AWESOME servers, as well as Archy and Gilbert! Anita at the front desk was great, and we really liked Chris the boat captain. Finally, Ernesto was sort of our vacation planner and kept us informed of anything we needed to know via email. He was incredibly professional and super helpful. Everyone we met was just outstanding and it made for the best vacation of all time! We were in Belize in mid-October which was the off-season, but it mostly just rained at night and didn't really affect us. The good thing was that it was windy, so the mosquitoes stayed away! Our beachfront casita was beautiful and I want to go back! We love you Matachica!!

My husband and I stayed at Matachica for 5 days/4nights over Labor day weekend. This resort is amazing and perfect for a get away from it all. The private casitas are so nice and have everything you would need and nicely designed. The food is very good and we didn't get anything we didn't like. It is a little pricey, but that is to be expected at a private resort such as this. Besides the amazing views, beach and peaceful property the staff really makes this place FANTASTIC. They are all so welcoming, helpful, happy and will get you any and everything you need. Location wise you have to rent a golf cart to drive into town (20 mins.) or secret beach (10 min.) It wasn't too bad, but on a dirt road with not a lot of light. So be careful with how much you might drink while out on the town. haha. Makes for an exciting adventure for sure. We also had spa services and I will say it was one of the best spa treatments I have ever had. I got the service that included a body scrub, message, and hair treatment. It was wonderful. I still think about our time at Matachica and can't wait to go back! Thank you again to all the staff, you guys were amazing and made the trip that much better, THANK YOU!

Exactly what I needed. I spent 5 days on this beautiful resort. Every single staff member was kind, courteous, and sought to make every moment special. I always felt safe and cared for. The resort is gorgeous, the seafront casita I was in, was comfy cozy beautiful. The resort is far enough from town to enjoy the peace and quiet, and accessible via golf cart. Add a trip to the Great Blue Hole and Secret Beach and support locals. No one bothers you here. Enjoyed Anita (manager) and all the staff.

Matachica was recommended to us for dinner while we stayed on the North shore of San Pedro. Just a short bike ride or golf cart drive away- whether you are coming from the lush nature side of the north or from the main town center, this restaurant and the grounds are not to be missed. The staff is exceptional and friendly. I highly recommend a visit to the grounds whether you are staying overnight or just coming for a day to enjoy live music, the picturesque walk along the pier and cabana beds, or to admire the artwork in the lobby. There is an upscale restaurant with the most delicious food and wine (vegetarian friendly too), a wonderful bar with great ambiance and a more upscale island vibe, and outdoor bamboo tiki-like bar nearby the pool and mangroves. Romantic, island-classy, and artistic are the words I'd use to describe this gorgeous resort.

Matachica was amazing! The staff was all so lovely and helpful to Chris and I. We really enjoyed our room, the beach, the scuba diving and being a part of the Matachica family. Gilbert (Gilly) was especially helpful to us. He catered to our every need. If you visit Matachica, ask for Gilly. He is the man!

This is a long overdue review for our stay at Matachica in November 2018. My husband and I came from California for a week for our honeymoon and I am so so glad I found this spot. The experience here was unlike anything you can find at this price anywhere else! It was the perfect spot for a couples and the service was unbelievable. Do not miss the amazing coconut mojitos! We stayed in the Seafront Casitas and they were totally worth it, there are not too many places where you can stay right on the beach! They also booked us amazing excursions and were generally incredibly helpful! We did jet skiing, swimming with sharks, ATM caves, took the golf cart to town, rode bikes to secret beach, and did a lot of relaxing on those plush loungers! We had a few days where the weather wasn't great, but the staff was super great in helping us figure out what to do instead. But the offseason price and crowds were worth it in my opinion! My only wish that it was easier for us to get to so we could come back more often!
