We recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Matachica. Burga was awesome in taking our reservation and following up with arranging our Tropic Air flight to San Pedro, even making sure we had a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a nice bottle of chardonnay to celebrate our anniversary. Once we arrived at the San Pedro airport, we were immediately met...

The road getting to Matachica is very rough and filled with pot holes. Regardless, visiting the resort is well worth the drive to get there. We walked through the resort and visited the bar and had drinks. The jalapeño margarita's are great. Bartenders were very friendly and informative. Glad we took the drive.

Matachica was amazing. Right from the jump they exceeded expectations. The resort grounds are well maintained, the food at the restaurant was fresh and delicious, and the staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. They would remember your name, your room, and your favorite drinks...not bad considering you only spend a few days with them. The free access to...

Everything's perfect in this resort. Very warm and friendly staff. Comfortable and well equipped casitas (I had a beachfront one). The snorkeling trips are very well organized by the hotel. The only drawback: no espresso!

Fabulous caye-front setting facing the sea and the roaring reef offshore. Plenty of inner water space for sailing & snorkelling, long lounging jetty with comfy recliners & sofas sticking out into the waves compete with bar & restaurant service as you relax. Great snorkelling trips from th ehotel to local reefs, but be sure to take White Sands Dive Shop...

There is a reason so many of these reviews start out with 'We'll be back.' Matachica is absolutely delightful from start to finish. I know I'm repeating what others have said, but the service is so friendly and so thoughtful, once you understand that every concern has been taken care of you realize that your only job is to relax...

From the moment we met our boat captain at the airport to our last day at the resort, our experience could not have been better. Every single staff member was friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Our room was gorgeous, and the housekeeping staff was amazing. The food and drinks were excellent, poolside, in the bar, or wherever we happened...

We had a wonderful time at this beach resort outside San Pedro. The facilities were very clean. It was well staffed with knowledgeable and attentive people. The food was very good and the snorkeling adventure on the reef was amazing.

We went to Mata Chica Resort! From the moment we got off the plan we were greeted by one of the employees of Mata Chica. All the employees and the concierge employments were amazing.

As with other reviewers we had a great stay at this lovely resort. Beautiful setting with lovely room. The soft white sand means a barefoot stay. Excellent staff and service. The only hotel downside was the breakfast - they only had egg dishes. Quite a few but at the end of a holiday some yoghurt and granola would be good....
