My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon on the Reef and Rainforest Honeymoon package. We were completely satisfied with every part of our stay. We stayed in a beachfront casita, which was beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean and we got service twice a day. The resort and restaurant had incredible food, delicious drinks, and the best staff service I have ever experienced. The staff is kind, thorough, friendly, and incredibly helpful. This resort is excellent for couples on vacation or honeymoon. From the moment we arrived until we were taken to the airport on our last day, we were treated so well and had a beautiful honeymoon. I absolutely intend to come back to Matachica!

Room Tip: Beachfront Casitas have a private beach, hammock, and ocean view from almost every window. Absolutel...

We had an extraordinary stay at Matachica. The place is just stunningly beautiful, super big and clean rooms, awesome ocean sunbeds and a fantastic cuisine. Many details that made it even more spectacular: limewater everywhere, welcome drinks, perfect service. The staff was extremly friendly and helpful and made our trip wonderful. We even extend our stay even though the next hotel was already booked.

This place checks all the boxes and makes your stay really easy. We booked excursions through the hotel without any issue and got massages onsite, that were great! Food is a bit pricey, but I didn't mind paying since it was incredible. Just book it.

Matachica Resort is an absolutely fantastic place for a quiet beach vacation. The accommodations are elegant but still give you a private/rustic Caribbean “feel”, the grounds are maintained meticulously, and the restaurant is excellent. Those three things are probably not the most notable elements if you can believe it. The front desk makes your stay almost maintenance free. They manage your transfers, pick you up at the airport, etc. All the various excursions/trips are listed with water taxi schedules, prices, etc. right up front and the front desk will book everything for you. Next, and this is a sensitive thing to point out to some, but if you’re looking for a true adult style “recharge” then we would like to mention that kids aren’t allowed. Don’t get me wrong, we love our kids and some may find the following “harsh” but sometimes you just need a few days of peace and quiet after years of non-stop family administration. Matachica underwrites this in spades. Finally, and I think an often underappreciated point, is their tipping policy. They add 15% at the end and you can dial it up a bit at your discretion (we sure did). Not once did I feel as if the staff were constantly “in my pocket”. This is nice and removes an expensive and awkward element that usually comes with most "resort" vacations in my experience.
Having a quiet coffee on the pier while watching the sting rays below, or walking the beach listening to the waves is a great way to wake up. Spend your day snorkeling, touring Mayan ruins, take a jungle tour, or just lounge by the beach/water and maybe start cocktails earlier than you’d ever practically consider in “real life”. Quiet dinner overlooking the ocean in the evening, go on another walk, read a book, whatever. If this is what you’re looking for, we would highly recommend Matachica.
Bottom line, we fully expect to go back and go back for longer than the 4 days we had this go around. Top notch views, facilities, and service.

Room Tip: The WI-fi extends to the rooms close to the main building (Lime has full internet access).

Matachica exceeded our expectations! The boutique resort is intimate, private, and stunning with the private villas, infinity pool, and stretch of beach and docks you have access to. Our villa was always immaculate (thanks for the bug spray, you'll need it) and they provide turn down service every night. It's a really quiet resort (no kids) and it's five miles north of the island hustle and bustle. It's very romantic and the kind of place you should go to unplug and relax. There is no internet, clocks, or televisions in your villa which is a plus (but worth noting). They help you escape from it all!

The restaurant, Mambo, is delicious and I love how breakfast is included with your stay. Although we wanted to venture out to try other local food in our week long stay (and I recommend you do) it was nice that the restaurant was onsite. One of our favorite days was a Matachica excursion of reef fishing and snorkeling. The snapper we caught with our Matachica guide was then prepared by the Matachica chef! I also recommend their coconut mojito.

Perhaps the most impressive part of Matachica is the gracious, thoughtful staff. Every single person seeks to know you by name, provide personalized service, and will do whatever it takes to make your stay comfortable. From the bar, to the restaurant, to the captains, to the front desk, to the spa - everyone was incredible. We hugged them all good bye because they made our stay so wonderful. I couldn't recommend the resort more. It is well worth the price. We will certainly be back!

Room Tip: Splurge for the oceanfront villas, order seafood (what's most local) at Mambo, try the daily exc...
