My husband and I celebrated out 25th anniversary here at Matachica. We found the staff exceptional and friendly. From the moment we stepped off the boat, Charlie had picked up our luggage and gave us a very nice trip to the lodge from the town of San Pedro. We were greeted with wonderful smiles by Irene, and Jonathan, who I...

My husband and I spent three nights here in August. Not nearly enough time! Post-wedding it was the perfect place to spoil ourselves, relax and enjoy what the resort had to offer. Truly idyllic my only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We had the banana room right in the back. I know other posts say that in the...

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon, we loved the amazing service and how secluded and small this place was. We also stayed @ hidden valley inn which was awesome. We had a lizard that kept crawling around our hut but the staff chased it out several times. The beds are amazing. Wouldn't recommend the private beach tour...

This hotel exceeded my expectations. After having spent time at some phenomenal and high rated hotels around the world, we've come to set the bar high, everywhere we go. So lets talk about Matachica. What is there left to say?! The previously posted reviews say it all. But, as a good Tripadvisor reviewer I will take this opportunity to add...

We stayed at Matachica after three nights at the Cayo sister property, Gaia. Both resorts have similar design, although at Matachica there is a strong Asian design element that seemed an odd fit for a Belizean island. Our beachfront casita (Mango) was directly next to the restaurant/bar, but since we kept the shutters and windows closed the entire time we...

We had our wedding at Matachica and I simply cannot imagine having had it anywhere else. We rented out the entire resort (26 amazingly cute fruit-named casitas) for 3 days and are already counting the days until we return. The staff were INCREDIBLE, knowing everyone by name and being incredibly accommodating. Our room (Plum, a deluxe beachfront) was AMAZING. It...

We spent our 8 day Honeymoon here in Oct. The property is very nice and the staff is excellent. The continental breakfast is very filling and the in house restaurant is above average.

Matachica is the premier spot for your honeymoon in Belize. Situated about five miles north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, Matachica offers everything you want, need and expect from a beachfront resort. We stayed on a one week honeymoon package during the first week of October and it was nothing short of perfect. Opt for the beachfront casita and...

My husband and I stayed at the Matachica between Oct 11 and 14, 2013. The resort was just amazingly beautiful. All the casitas were in close proximity to the beach, the ocean was crystal blue from the shore to further than we could see, the staff was super friendly and helpful, and the décor in the resort was great.
