I loved the quiet and out of the "busy-ness" of this place. While you can walk directly along the beach to get into the heart of San Pedro's larger, busier beachfront resorts in about ten minutes, it's far enough that you can enjoy the quiet of the ocean when that's what you're seeking. The staff are incredibly friendly and quick...

we spent 5 wonderful days on Ambergris Caye in late March-early April 2017 and stayed at the small boutique hotel, Mata Rocks. We traveled with friends who were staying at a different report on the north side of the island, so we had the chance for a little bit of compare and contrast. In every regard, Mata Rocks comes out...

We enjoyed our stay at Mata Rocks during spring break. This is a quite and small quaint hotel south of San Pedro...which we actually preferred. It was peaceful and relaxing like a vacation should be. The property is very clean and the staff seems to take pride in keeping the place kept up. They are extremely helpful and very friendly....

I've read some of the reviews. Yes, Mata Rocks is small. So if you need assistance in the evening, you have to go see the bartender, who is always willing to help. There is no one at the desk if you need assistance at night. The hot water also takes awhile to come in. But there were so many positives...The...

The room was quite small for three people. I'm not sure if this is across all of San Pedro, but the room was quite humid and so our wet things (from water activities) never got fully dry. The water pressure was lacking and water smelled like sulphur. Office closes early, so at times it was difficult to get service. For...

Nice boutique beachside hotel (only 17 rooms including 6 suites) - great atmosphere about 2 miles from downtown San Pedro with cute poolside beach bar; staff service was excellent - could have used some more amenities including more local info about tours & restaurants in the room. Golf carts available for rental from hotel though little more pricey than other...

There are just 17 rooms in this little hotel, the room was on the first floor with a kitchenette and useful fridge, the balcony view of the sea was outstanding. There is a small pool and a bar. A very basic breakfast is provided at the bar. San Pedro is a short walk along the beach / golf buggy ride...

I and two buddies needed a hotel for a week on the Caye so we could do some diving. We specifically booked Mata Rocks based on their willingness to accomodate three to a room. The web site said roll away beds were available. We specifically requested one for our stay when booking months in advance. Additionally we had our previous...

South of town this clean & tidy hotel perches right in the beach! The staff were all extremely professional and wished only to help & make your visit the best. They arranged our snorkel trip & we were picked up right in front of the hotel. For dining we had some local fare at Robyn's just across the street. Try...

This was our first trip to San Pedro. When booking this hotel we were a bit concerned that it was not close enough to the town center. However it did meet most of our must haves and so we booked a Superior Balcony Room for 3 weeks. We were not disappointed! All the staff is great. Very friendly & accommodating....
