We had a wonderful trip at the beginning of September at Matachica. The most outstanding characteristic is the wait staff. Edwin, Archie, Adam, Jose, Gilbert, and Alfrid all made our trip great. The facilities are very nice with great air conditioning in the rooms. The staff continually works to make sure that the beach is clear of any seagrass that may float up. The food in Mambo is great. There best choices are the fresh items that are harvested locally. I would think twice about the pasta choice unless it featured fresh seafood. Before settling on Matachica, you should understand that this is a very laid back environment. You are wasting your suitcase space if you pack lots of dress up shoes and clothes. There are not any televisions. I was surprised how much I missed that but it left a surprising amount of time to read and relax. The resort has kayaks, paddleboats and snokel equipment which are complimentary.

Room Tip: Make sure you get an oceanfront hut. The walk to the huts away from the water is innundated with mosquitos.

You can't go wrong with Matachica. We did not stay overnight but used their resort ALL DAY on multiple days. The restaurant and pool areas are amazing. The pier and loungers provide you with some of the best views on the Caye.

This is an incredible resort to stay in Ambergris Caye. The individual Mayan huts were immaculate. It was more private than staying in a hotel yet you always will feel that the awesome staff is right there whenever you need ANYTHING. They provide very incredible service - they will make any plans for you, call water taxis, (you will never carry your luggage from the moment you get off the plane in Belize City until you return to Belize City!) arrange air transport or ferry transport to and from Ambergris anytime you need it! The grounds and pool are like living in an eternal post card. This place is beautiful! We really enjoyed the incredible food and drinks from the restaurant and bar.! kayaks, peddle boats, snorkeling equipment and stand-up boards are available right there for you and we used them anytime we wanted- there was always enough there. LOVED all the super friendly staff especially Archie there were others but I can't remember their names - however every single person we encountered was wonderful. The internet works great in the common area- just what I prefer to keep in touch at home and then forget about the rat race back home awhile! It's a bit (10 minute boat taxi ride) from downtown San Pedro but we loved that it was so peaceful and serene and we enjoyed the boat taxi rides over the turquoise waters as one of our highlights of our trip! You will love it, no worries.

Don't even waste your time researching where to stay in Belize, you MUST stay here! Cabana heaven on the beach, amazing bar/restaurant and 5 star service. We completely cancelled our plans after we left here to come right back. As a world traveler, I can't think of a place that comes close to the level of service and kindness from this beach resort. Every single staff member knew our name and were the most genuine team. Shout out to our bartender homies, Myra at the restaurant, our front desk host and the manager of the hotel who made my birthday week unforgettable. I can't thank you all enough, other then to bring all my friends back every year!!

My husband and I booked this resort for 5 days in August. This decision was based on such good reviews on TripAdvisor. We have to agree!!! One word to describe this - WOW!!! We were blown away from the moment we arrived at the airport. We were whisked away in a golf cart, onto a boat where we were asked what drink we would like, then straight to the pier of the resort. We were greeted by a wonderful and caring staff, handed our drinks and lead to our amazing room "The Strawberry!!!" This was a Postcard beautiful - bungalow!! One of the main reasons we picked this resort was due to the white sand beaches. The employees worked so hard 3-4 times per day raking up and hauling away the sea grass - so the sand could remain clean. We were so impressed by these hard working guys! The wait staff, the desk staff, the beach workers - ALL were so great!! We ate in the restaurant, which was a little pricey for dinner, but WELL worth the prices. Large portions of well-prepared food, great wine and service! We were treated so well, like royalty. We would absolutely go back!!!
