I came here with my husband and another couple. We were impressed with the view our room and most other rooms had, especially at the price. It has a nice beach and cute thatch roof bar and is in a great location. The rooms were nice and made up each day. Most staff was not very friendly or helpful at... More

We stayed here in October, 2016 and had a pretty good stay. The rooms were very clean, as were the grounds. The small pool was great for a mid-day cool down dip. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, as well. We even met the owners and they were great too. The negatives. Like Most places on Ambergris Caye, the... More

... however, 24 hrs after arriving on the island we were in the SP ER, as I was being casted for a broken left patella (knee cap) sustained on the "black ice" of the concrete surrounding the resort pool (no horseplay was involved). Our 8 night stay was a bust! After finally arriving home to Ohio I emailed MR asking... More

Yes it is a intimate resort hotel that covers the basics well. Clean comfortable rooms with a great view and a nice beach front. I would also add that our room had the best bed we slept on during our trip to Belize. While we were staying they were rebuilding the Bar/service area damaged by the Hurricane the month before....

I stayed here one night while on business. The room was clean and had quality fittings thru out. The pool was small but fine for size of hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a very nice quiet hotel at the end of the main beach in San Pedro. That means it is about a 20 minute walk to the ferry and "downtown," so you are close to whatever you want there, but far enough way that the noise and crowds don't venture down this far. Nice small pool. Beach bar. You... More

This hotel is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of chain hotels. All rooms have a direct view to the Caribbean Sea. The service is exceptional and you are made feel like you are family and not a paying guest. The water in the shower doesn't get extremely hot but it was a welcome treat after being out... More

My favorite part of staying here for 7 nights besides being a few feet from the Caribbean, was the staff! Especially Cherelynn. She has worked there for many many years.

We spent 10 awesome nights at Mata Rocks. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room, though small, was plenty efficient. The maid/grounds staff work consistently to keep things clean.
