We fell in love with Mata Rcoks. The welcome drink of rum. punch was refreshing and. made our welcome feel so special. The place is very well kept. It is clean and very safe. The staff are beyond helpful and very friendly. We made quick friends with each of the staff and found them to be so helpful and welcoming. The pool pump was broken when we arrived but the staff did everything they could to get it fixed and us in the pool as quick as they could. The bar staff was helpful with recommendations and history of the island. Breakfast was the perfect way to start each day, made fresh and even brought to our room when we were moving slow. The balcony is a great place to spend the evening. The bikes were a great way to get around town, I liked them better then driving the golf cart, makes for a better way to experience the island. The hotel arranged for a golf cart for us and that was fun as well. I can't say enough of how much we enjoyed our time here. It is the perfect distance from everything to enjoy but still be peaceful. The food and drinks are top notch.

It is hard to put into words what a great experience we had staying at Mata Rocks. To start I want to recognize Harry and Javier for being exemplary employees. There wasn't anything they wouldn't do to make our stay the highlight of our trip. I also want to mention Giselle, Gustavo and Maricela. Every employee walked around with a genuine smile and everything they did to support us in having a memorable stay at the resort and on the island was commendable. I felt like I was visiting family. I highly recommend staying at this sweet boutique. The location is a perfect to everywhere and the food is so outstanding that if you choose to remain on the site you won't be disappointed. I am looking forward to returning next year. Simply the best.

This gem of a hotel was perfect. It is small, friendly, accommodating with exceptional employees. We felt like family. We had such a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend. This hotel has been renovated and is very clean and comfortable. We used the new pickleball courts which were a cherry on top of a lovely holiday experience.

Definitely a find. From the time we got to the resort, we were made to feel like family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast that was offered. I was also able to have my daughter's room decorated for her birthday while we were out doing an activity. Anita and Hari and the entire staff are absolutely AMAZING!!! We have decided to make Mata Rocks our annual vacation spot.

My new favorite vacation spot and I can't recommend this gem of a property enough. I was very lucky to have stumbled upon this resort at the perfect time - there are new brand pickle ball courts on the property. Special thanks to Giselle for getting us all set up with a court. She provided us with pickle balls and paddles so we did not have to lug our own down from New York. Added bonus was the complimentary welcome drinks and ocean/pool view with every room. You really can't go wrong here! Next time we come back, we will go scuba diving!

This was truly a hidden gem of Belize! A small boutique hotel right on the water. Beautiful views of the ocean. Best of all you could get this view from a very great bar that serves a host of truly delicious drinks and food. As for the rooms, they are state of the art and offer a nice familiar vibe that makes you feel at home. Just an overall fantastic experience. I would recommend this place to anyone who asks!

What an amazing resort. The staff is very personable and friendly. The rooms are very spacious with great views. The bar/ restaurant are quaint. The best part of the resort is the two pickleball courts. What an amazing way to wake up and break a sweat!! The staff was very helpful in accommodating various excursions and helping direct us to great local restaurants. 10/10 plan on going back as soon as possible!!!

From the moment you enter the property you feel the serenity and beauty of your surroundings- the staff greet you with a complimentary welcome drink and you know that your vacation has truly begun. The rooms are all fresh and well appointed.. the design and decor is warm and tasteful - every room looks out onto the bright blue water - the bartenders at the traditional palapa bar are you instant friends and confidents - the chef prepared bites and meals are fresh and indulgent.. looking around the beach the next challenging decision is complimentary hammock , lounge chair , paddle board or kayaks- I’ll take one of each please. The staff offer to book any excursions that we want - they make suggestions on things that we haven’t thought of , the golf cart rentals available on property are really convenient, they come with a full tank of gas and are serviced weekly so we have no fear of them breaking down ( we had heard from friends before arriving that some of the rental cart companies that that advertise cheaper rates are very unreliable) An added bonus for us when we arrived were the new Pickleball courts that have been added to the property - as avid players it was quite an unexpected treat to be able to play while on vacation - they have paddles and balls to rent and the use of the courts are complimentary for hotel guests A truly great vacation in a beautiful setting ..

A cute and smaller resort, rooms are steps away from the beach. Quiet location close to local amenities. Rooms are reminiscent of a higher end B and B super cute, compact and very clean! Air conditioning works phenomenally well. Nice pool barely used! What makes this site so valuable is the dedicated local team who are honestly invested in making sure all visitors enjoy their trip to their country, they go over and above to make you feel welcome. The bartenders attracted locals and residents from other resorts due to their personable and high quality service. The food was well made and reasonably priced everything from local dishes to one of the most delicious pizzas I’ve ever eaten. Drinks were well made, bartenders knowledgeable however a slight decrease in price and a wider variety of products and I probably would not ventured elsewhere as the ambience and environment was enough to keep me content to spend all my time in the evenings there. A dedicated security team makes this site super secure. I can honestly say without this service I probably would not of enjoyed my stay as much as I did. I never go to the same place twice but for this quality of service I am considering returning to San Pedro and this site. In all my trips around the world this is service like no other! Marsee to the amazing crew at Mata Rocks!

We joined some friends in Ambergris Caye, Belize over Spring Break but due to our last minute decision to actually go we were not able to stay on the same property as them. So we did some searching and found Mata Rocks. We had a terrific time and really enjoyed this property. It's got a great vibe and has a cool, modern look to it. Many properties on Ambergris Caye in this price range are old but Mata Rocks is either relatively new or has been refreshed recently. It feels like a boutique hotel. The bar area outside (where you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner) is setup well with your options of bar seating or tables and chairs (or out on the beach). The bartenders are all super nice and friendly. They were quick to get our drinks or food but just as quick with suggestions on where to dine in town. We even saw locals (girls from a nearby dive shop) after work and non-guests-but-clearly-tourists quietly having drinks there so, in the evening, there is a small "buzz" about the place. It's a nice place to chill out, have a drink, and enjoy the sea breeze. The hotel serves free breakfast at the bar so guests would gather in the morning for coffee and whatever was on the free menu. You can also buy breakfast items or get the free breakfast and pay for something additional if you wanted. Our room was great and had a balcony with a view over the pool and out over the ocean. In addition to curtains that let in diffuse light through the balcony slider, there was a shade that you could drop down to ensure your room stayed dark and had absolute privacy. The room came with a (I think) king bed with two nightstands. Tip: if the plug next to your bed doesn't seem to work, it could be controlled by a light switch next to the sliding door. This is notable in case you are trying to charge your phone and are wondering why it's not charging. The bed was comfortable with good pillows. We also had a bunk in our room that could accommodate another person but we just used it to lay out clothes. Housekeeping refills a plastic bottle/jug of water in your room fridge everyday so you have free water if you don't want to take a chance with the local water. The bathroom was not huge but plenty big for one person to use at a time. It was clean, updated, and the shower had GREAT hot water. It was hot and it stayed hot. The location is a bit south of San Pedro but you can walk to town on the beach or on the road. We would generally walk into town for dinner to meet our friends but take a taxi back to the hotel. Taxis were consistently $5 US from town back to the hotel (but always ask the driver first). Overall, we really liked this place. It was priced reasonably for the location and the quality of the rooms/property/amenities, it had a cool look and vibe (i.e. not dated or old), and everyone was super nice and responsive. One nitpick was the fact that Wi-Fi was spotty in our room. It worked great just outside the room and at the bar. I understand that the management is working on making sure Wi-Fi is solid in all the rooms. The other nitpick was the fact that they apparently have courtesy bikes available for guests. We were never informed of this and only knew because we passed by them and inquired about them in the office. If you are so inclined, it seems you could ride a bike into town and save the walk and/or the taxi ride. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again.

Thanks for the review! We are so glad that you had such a nice stay with us. I do apologize that the WiFi was not the best, it's something that we've been working on and struggling with since we opened for the rooms. The WiFi in the bar/restaurant area does work quite well so if you need to work while on vacation that's where we recommend you go and sit. Also with the bikes, you absolutely should have been informed about them at checkin, we will fix this training issue with our staff immediately. Thanks again, and we hope to see you soon!
