This resort was a wonderful surprise. We did not plan on staying here but a storm changed our plans. The service at this resort was great. From the front desk to the waiters and tour guides. We had a massage is the spa and it was very nice. The grounds were impeccably kept. Wifi in Belize was not the best... More

We just spent 5 days at one of the nicest places we've ever been. 5 days with no television, phone, very limited internet connection (WiFi is provided in the resort - not the rooms) and my cell phone on airplane mode and it was awesome. The staff were the nicest people and fantastic service. We can't wait to come back.

The location of Mata Chica is amazing. It sits directly on the beach with the most incredible lounging spaces on the dock. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. They rake the sand several times/day to keep it pretty! The housekeeping does an excellent job to keep the rooms clean and with fresh water morning and night. The restaurant... More

Matachica delivers on the promise, it is a truly romantic resort, not the 5 star all inclusive type, but more the upscale 4 star eco style. So the amenities aren't fancy, but all the rooms are kept very clean and they are spacious, authentic and beautifully set around the pool or facing the beach. All of them are smartly placed... More

We stayed in the "Plum" cottage which was Oceanfront and a great view from the patio. I will start with the positives, the staff were amazing and super friendly and just couldn't have been nicer or couldn't have tried harder to please. The location is perfect a lot of ocean front rooms and the food is excellent in the restaurant.... More

The resort is top notch as our the people that work there. They become friends while you are there. The casitas are very nice. We had a iguana we named iggy who lived in our thatched roof. The grounds are immaculate. The Mambo restaurant has excellent food, not inexpensive but very good. The resort is a ways from town and... More

First class service from the minute you get off the plane! All the staff knows your name and is willing to accommodate your every need. Super friendly, respectful and helpful. The casitas are elegantly appointed - true to the web pictures. The restaurant was delicious but a little pricey. I'm sure that is in line with island living. We had... More

There is not much to say about the Matachica beside that its perfect ! Perfect location, fantastic room (we took a bungalow on the beach), great service and a panel of water-sports and activities available. Its definitively worth the price. The only negative point I would say would be the restaurant, the food is good but very much over-priced but... More
