My husband and I spent 10 glorious days at Matachica in February. From the moment we were greeted at the airport and ferried to the resort by boat to the return trip at the end of our vacation the staff were unfailingly polite, upbeat and helpful. Everyone we encountered was ready to help and so friendly. The hardworking housekeeping staff...

we had a great stay here! we were actually happy that we did not stay in the city because the hotels that in the city do not have as much space and aren't on a beautiful stretch of land like matachica is. It takes about 15-20 min to get to matachica from the center of san pedro, which isn't bad....

Expensive, but very good all around. Very good staff, rooms, grounds, food, pool, service, clean and relaxed and romantic. But, beach is shallow with too much seaweed and plants and no surf, and the physical fitness facility minimal.

The Matachica Resort is truly one of a kind. We have never experienced anything quite like the R & R that Matachica provided. Somehow, staff members have managed to find the prefect balance between luxury and simplicity. Staying at the Matachica Resort is like staying with brothers and sisters that you actually like. The informality we felt among the staff,...

After a week long mission trip working at Holy Cross Anglican School in San Pedro, we took a few day of R&R at Matachica. What an incredible resort. We were treated like royalty from the time we boarded the boat to take us to the resort until the final golf cart ride to the airport. The staff is amazingly courteous...

We have stayed at Mata Chica three years in a row. Although we have looked and stayed at other resorts there are none better in our opinion. Friendly staff, activities if you want them, beach is very well kept and food is sensational. Mata Chica has an earthy organic atmosphere that is unrivaled on this island. Something happens to me...

After leaving Belmopan with tropic air (quite a scary flight!) and a 10 minutes boat ride, what a pleasant surprise to arrive at the beautiful Matachica Resort. We stayed in a beachfront casita for 5 nights. It was windy when we where there so it made quite some noise but to open our door and see the turquoise sea every...

Wow what a great place for a few days R & R. It doesn’t seem to matter where you stay as it’s a really small resort and all the casitas are well positioned. Our casita was nicely laid out and equipped. The staff were really great and the trips we did to the Hol Chan marine reserve and our boat...

Matachica is magic, from the moment you are met at the airport in San Pedro by Christopher and whisked away for a 10 minutes boat trip up the caye. As so many reviewers have said, the staff is wonderful - helpful, informed, always anticipating ones comfort. Our casita was splendid with the sea right outside and a contant refreshing breeze....

Just returned from an 8 night stay in Matachica for our honeymoon. WOW - what a place! It really does stand head and shoulders above everything else I've experienced (and been lucky enough to stay at some great places in my time). Firstly, it has very cleverly defined its own unique style that brims with character and class without being...
