This resort sits on the beach and is within a 15 minute paddle to the reef, which by the way is second largest in the world(about 175 miles long). The little bungalows are comfortable and modernized. All are appointed with A/C units built in and large walk-in showers that have an open design. The staff here are happy humble people...

I'm sure the owner will respond to this with his petty policy talking points more fitting to a Hampton Inn than a luxury hotel, but here I go: - A hard-boiled egg is included in the breakfast, when I requested a soft boiled egg, I was told every morning that there would be an "extra charge", so I would recommend...

We stayed in the beach bungalows by the water. Well appointed, updated and well maintained. What makes this hotel so special is the staff. From the minute you arrive they make a point of remembering your names and what your preferences are for everything from how you like your coffee to what drink you like at the beach. Extremely well...

We arrived in Belize the day before New Years Eve. We took a flight from New York to Belize City and then a taxi to the port to take the San Pedro Express water taxi ($30) and the hotel picked us up at the port in San Pedro for a quick transfer to the hotel. Everything about Matachica is exactly...

From the moment we arrived I knew this was going to be good. The reservation manager was extremely thorough when I booked directly with the resort (not through a 3rd party site). The Captain was waiting for us at the small airport and drove us by golf cart to the boat. Upon our boarding he asked our preference for drinks...

Matachica exceeded my expectations by far. I loved that each room was a bungalow and had a separate entrance. We arrived early on Maya Island Air and the staff was at airport waiting for us. Matachica is about a 10 minute boat ride from town. I recommend finding out the schedule to go back and forth between town on the...

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 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.
