I'm a self proclaimed workaholic who has a really hard time turning it off. We opted to start at the Matachica to jump start some serious R&R. Going in we knew: Limited wifi, picturesque vistas of the crystal blue water, an infinity pool and incredible service and rooms. It wasn't until we were picked up in a golf cart at...

Everything was perfect. Beautiful, remote location. Amazing spa. Perfectly clean rooms with plenty of space. Unique design. Accommodating service. Wonderful food. I loved every minute here! I highly recommend Matachica for anyone looking for a relaxing, restful spot on Ambergris Caye.

We had an amazing stay at Matachica in April. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. Someone was always nearby to assist with drinks, tour reservations, recommendations and more. The grounds were kept extremely nice and the rooms were very clean. World class service, food and drinks! Highly recommend for couples!

Beautiful location that did not disappoint. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Sea breeze suite which had 2 comfortable queen size beds. Our breakfast was included and was delicious (get a flap jack!). We only ate one lunch & one dinner at the resort and it was just ok, but that may have just...

The food was great the sevice was great, the atmosphere was great, but no kids are allowed, which is a real bummer. But Matachica was still a great place, and great way to spend your vacation. It is also very difficult to get to, but I think their is a service that can pick you up,because it is about an...

Spent 5 days here on solo getaway. The place is fantastic -- very relaxing. Unfortunately I could not get a beachfront casita as they were all booked. I stayed in one of the Sea Breeze Suites. The bed is super comfortable. The food is very good as are the drinks. All other guests appeared to be couples. The resort is...

We've been fortunate enough to have traveled to some of the finest resorts in the world so our expectations are high. My husband and I decided to book a last minute getaway and wanted something relaxed that fit into the "shorts and flip flop" category. We weren't expecting anything that would rival other five star experiences we've had in the...

Stayed as a couple in March over US spring break. Beachfront casita is the way to go, otherwise you miss out on what the resort truly has to offer. Large rooms, comfortable beds and privacy. We were in Watermelon which is the last one on the southern side of the resort. Only one neighbor before the next property over which...

Such a beautiful place! Feels private and romantic, the restaurant was so delicious! The best place I ate at on the whole island and worth the bumpy wet and windy boat ride to get there! A must stay place.

Matachica is an amazing resort that not only has wonderful amenities but also an excellent staff. From the moment of our arrival until our departure they took care of every detail. The food at the resort is top notch as well as the drinks they serve. One of the best parts of staying at Matachica is that you do not...
