When our resort couldn't accomodate an earlier-than-planned arrival to San Pedro, we were referred to stay 2 nights at Matachica. Once we got there, we didn't want to leave! The place felt like a retreat - each little villa, bungalow, or "hut" as I called them felt so secluded, you really felt like you were the only ones there! The service was amazing, but not cheesy or in-your-face annoying. It was just perfect. If you want to get away (no tvs or phones in the rooms!) with your loved one and spend your time reading in a hammock, having meaningful conversations, and walking the gorgeous beach, this is the place for you!

Room Tip: View of the beach would be amazing, but not required at all. Every villa is situated facing the ocean and feel very private.

We recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Matachica. Burga was awesome in taking our reservation and following up with arranging our Tropic Air flight to San Pedro, even making sure we had a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a nice bottle of chardonnay to celebrate our anniversary. Once we arrived at the San Pedro airport, we were immediately met by Chris with a golf cart to load up our bags and take us to the dock for a quick boat ride to Matachica. We were greeted with Margaritas and met some of the amazing staff. Then we were shown to our beachfront casita, Papaya. The casita was beyond our expectations, right on the beach, beautiful sunrises every morning and hurricane shutters letting the light breeze blow through night and day. Enjoy the comfy bed with linens and towels that are better than home. Even the soaps and shampoo were top of the line. A week didn't seem like enough time, even though we took advantage of almost all of the amenities, sea kayaks, snorkeling on the reef, lounging on the beach and dock baskets, a beautiful and quiet pool. The staff was incredible; always friendly and available taking care of our every need. Thank you Matthew, Adam, Archie, Edwin and the rest. We highly recommend taking advantage of some of the many guided activities, we reef fished for snapper with great success and snorkeled at Mexico Rocks with Charlie and snorkeled again at Hol Chan with Henry. How often to you get to swim with nurse sharks, Moray eels, sting rays and hundreds of variety of reef fish? The kitchen staff turned our freshly caught snapper into amazing fish tacos within the hour. Delicious! The staff makes whatever activity you desire effortless, taking care of all the details. Or just hang out on the property and take walks up and down the beautiful white sand beach. The Mamba Restaurant was outstanding for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between. Matachica is paradise, perfect for relaxing and leaving the real world behind. We also recommend renting a golf cart and touring the island. It's just a short drive into San Pedro a quaint town with several outstanding restaurants, Caliente, on the beach, Elvi's kitchen, and El Fogon. What a sad day it was when the time came to leave our new friends at Matachica, but we are already plotting our next visit. Maybe a few days at Gaia, the sister resort in the mountains, before heading to the beach and reef. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Matachica is the perfect paradise for a quiet relaxing trip. It's what a vacation is supposed to be. Thanks to everyone at Matachica for making our trip so wonderful and memorable.

The road getting to Matachica is very rough and filled with pot holes. Regardless, visiting the resort is well worth the drive to get there. We walked through the resort and visited the bar and had drinks. The jalapeño margarita's are great. Bartenders were very friendly and informative. Glad we took the drive.

Matachica was amazing. Right from the jump they exceeded expectations. The resort grounds are well maintained, the food at the restaurant was fresh and delicious, and the staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. They would remember your name, your room, and your favorite drinks...not bad considering you only spend a few days with them. The free access to bikes, kayaks, snorkeling gear, etc is an awesome perk and one i highly recommend taking advantage of. Take a kayak out to the reef, you wont be disappointing. Due to its location about 5 miles outside of the city center, it truly is a calm and peaceful paradise.

Room Tip: rooms up front have an ocean view, but the all the rooms are within 50 yards of the beach

Everything's perfect in this resort.
Very warm and friendly staff. Comfortable and well equipped casitas (I had a beachfront one).
The snorkeling trips are very well organized by the hotel.
The only drawback: no espresso!

Room Tip: Beachfront casitas are obviously better (and + expensive) than the garden ones.
