My husband and I selected Matachica for our honeymoon on a whim based on other reviews we read. It was the best choice we could have made and Matachica lived up to ever expectation and far exceeded them. It was quiet and private yet we felt as if the staff were close friends of ours that we had not seen in ages. The food was incredible and the beachfront casita was worth it!
We slept with the sound of the waves crashing and although we went on some excursions, we were very happy just to be relaxing by the ocean for the day. We were looking for a small resort that could allow us to break away from our hectic daily lives and from wedding planning and we got it!

We had a great time and could not ask for more.
The package we had was a deal considering the location, cleanliness, great food and staff.
Easy to catch a ride on the Matachica boat to town for a change of pace and always nice to return to our cabana "banana"
Thanks,

Ok the resort is nice, very nice. The Cabana's are clean and pretty, service is ok, but the food, ooooh the food.... We selected this resort because of the raving critiques on the website about the food. We discovered however that those were written a long time ago. We gave the Mambo 2 shots (dinner and lunch) and it sucked brutally both times! It is all ready made food that comes out of a freezer gets shoved in the microwave and after you hear 'pling" out comes your food! When for instance I asked for vanilla ice in my desert instead of coconut (which they had on the menu in a different dessert) the answer was: "sorry, we can't it is ready made..." Places to go to eat? Really there's only 1: Wild Mango's.

We just got married over Memorial Day at Matachica Resort on Ambergris Caye in Belize.

My wife I and (fiance at the time) personally visited literally every single upscale resort on the island, and nothing compared to Matachica. The decision to hold our wedding there was an easy one.

Words cannot convey how amazing the entire week was. We had a total of 35 guests with us, and we basically took over the resort for the better part of a week. Burga, the resort manager, was incredibly attentive and delightful to work with. She made sure that every single last detail was perfect.

The meals, accommodations, setting, and ambiance the entire week was amazing. But what made the entire week so wonderful was the staff. Everyone working at the resort was warm and went out of their way to ensure that our entire group had the time of our lives.

If anyone out there is looking to have a relatively small (25-45) destination wedding in a gorgeous, secluded, tropical place, I highly recommend this wonderful resort.

My husband and I went to Mata Chica on our second leg of our honeymoon - after spending 4 days in the jungle. We loved the welcome cocktail drink and the atmosphere. We had one of the back cabanas which you did not get any breeze at all - def worth spending the extra money to have a beach front one! The room was really nice - bed was perfect, shower, etc. Fresh flowers and robes were nice touches. The food at the Mambo was okay for dinner - we actually ate our first dinner there and then tried elsewhere (Rojo next door was great by the way - big portions - great food!). Breakfast was yummy at Mambo though. We took out the complimentary kayaks and snorkel gear right off of the resort. It was really nice being the only ones out there. We also did a tour arrange through the resort (be aware that we were never told we had to pay once we arrived at the tour location - thought it was being billed to the room). The boat schedule into town was infrequent and at strange times. For such a high class resort, they should think about a set schedule for their guests!

All in all - we really enjoyed the dock for our relaxation - you can swim right off of it with no seaweed. The two lounge chairs set up there was our daily routine. For honeymoons, it was a great time but would we go back - nope - but that is because we want to try something new!

What an amazing resort, comprised of individual casitas with thatched palapa roofs. The staff could not be more friendly or nicer. We were greeted on the dock and welcomed with a drink. The food was fresh, delicious, and always beautifully prepared. Also, the portions were perfect and priced reasonably. The grounds are attended to all day, the room was new and very clean. Plush Frette linens are provided. Kayaks, snorkel gear, beach towels,and bikes are complimentary . The resort provides a water taxi if you'd like to get into town~ 5 miles south. My husband and I were very impressed with the resort. Even the lobby music was awesome. We were treated like royalty, and always called by our names. Many of the couples were on their honeymoon, so the resort was quiet and romantic. This is NOT a place for kids. We hated to leave this very special paradise.
