Matachica Resort & Spa
Ranked #8 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2017

My husband and I did a lot of research on hotels in Belize so that we could relax and enjoy our honeymoon once we arrived. What really attracted us to Matachica was not just the beautiful beachfront bungalows, but the adults-only label...so worth it!

Communication was very smooth in the months leading up to our trip. Thank you to all of the booking staff - very helpful! We were picked up from the airport in San Pedro and quickly ushered onto their private boat for the 15 minute ride to the resort. The best part: they pre-ordered drinks so that when we arrived, cold cocktails were waiting for us. Highly recommend the coconut mojito!

We booked the deluxe beachfront casita, which was actually nicer in person than the pictures. The room was large, the bed comfortable, and the shower had the best water pressure of any of the three hotels we stayed at during our two weeks in Belize. My favorite part was the hammock on the front porch - perfect for early mornings and late evenings watching the ocean.

Our other two favorite parts of this hotel: the pier and staff. I have to mention the pier because it has these large, round couches that are perfect for lounging all day. When we got too hot, we just went to the end and jumped off! You can't really walk into the ocean from the beach due to the sea grass, but the pier totally made up for it. As for the staff, they were an absolute delight. We want to give a shout-out to Gilly, Godwin, Archy, Adam, JC, Robin, and all of the others who made sure we always had a drink in hand throughout our four days with them. Oh, and the food is good, too :)

The only reason we're giving this hotel a 4-star rather than a 5-star review is because we had to move rooms one night due to a broken AC unit. While management did fix it the next day, it was a little frustrating to return at 9 pm to a hot room - especially because this is not a cheap resort.

Other than that small annoyance, our experience was pretty near perfect!

Room Tip: The deluxe beachfront casitas are totally worth it!

When scouting places to stay in San Pedro, I happened upon the Matachica resort. For me, even the cheapest room here is out of our price range, however, after reading all the the reviews we booked it anyway, and I'm glad we did. The staff that work here are simply amazing, not enough can be said about their efforts to accommodate and really make you feel welcome. Eric is wonderful and so helpful with any activity you want to do, the front desk is super helpful and really so nice. The resort itself is so peaceful and relaxing whether you are sitting on the water or by the pool, it's always an experience of serenity. Our rooms were always tidied and made ready for evening or day time. We just left, and are already looking forward to an opportunity to return.

Well, it has been just over a week since we stayed at Matachica in celebration of pit 20th anniversary. There are no words to describe our amazing stay. We booked the short Caribbean getaway package (and added on a day). It was absolutely perfect! They provided everything from boat transportation to the resort to nightly turndown service. We relaxed and played and made wonderful memories. The resort is exactly as described on the website - absolutely perfect.

Everyone took such good care of us and attended to our every need and the crazy thing is we never felt intruded upon. Our room was perfect. And yes, upgrade to the beachfront. You won't regret it. We awoke to the sun rising over beautiful turquoise waters every day. We relaxed on our loungers and in the hammock. The constant breeze was refreshing. We took kayaks out and snorkeled at the reef. It was absolutely beautiful. We also took the Hol Chan snorkel trip and snorkeled at shark ray alley. It was so awesome! You must make time to do that. My husband went on a reef fishing trip and even though he didn't catch a ton, it was a lot of fun and the Chef cooked his catch! Speaking of the chef - so gifted. Every meal we had that their on site restaurant, Mambo, was delicious. There were many choices and we always left stuffed. Mambo must be well known on the island because there were always people dining that were not staying on the property. We ate lobster almost everyday! Another must do - visit the Jade Spa. By far the best massage and facial I have ever had! Really!!

Matachica is an intimate place offering amazing service and amenities. Many times we felt as though we were the only ones there as there was such seclusion. I cannot wait to return. When you need a getaway, I highly recommend Matachica. You won't regret it and you won't even miss the TVs.

Like many of you, we spent a lot of long nights trying to decide where to spend our week. Decided on one, then 2nd guessed ourselves...then on another, then back. We couldn't find that traditional Mexico style boutique we always enjoy in many other beach destinations. All of the other hotels (highly ranked) just seemed dated and stale. We finally located Matachica and thought it looked exactly what we were wanting, and the reviews confirmed it. Done.

Stayed a week and could've stayed another...easily. Staff does become family. From boat operators to housekeeping to bartenders to wait staff. They're all on the same page.

Room was perfect. Food was outstanding. Pool was quiet. Pier lounging was quiet.

We took our own speaker and the pier and pool had access to wifi which was nice for our own music.

Not sure what else to say that hasn't been said already. This place gets it and we will be back.

Feel free to ping me if you have any questions.

Had a fantastic time at Matachica, the place is so peaceful, food is excellent, staff are attentive and the hotel is beautiful. My favourite place was sitting on the round loungers attached to the dock, was my perfect idea of relaxation.
