We were very pleased with our stay at Mata Rocks. If you are looking for a simple, but nice place to stay this is it. We stayed in #10, and it was perfect. Comfortable bed, plenty of towels, air conditioner, fridge, Wi-Fi, tv, and plenty of hot water. We stayed ten days and at the end of the stay decided that next time we will ask for a room with a kitchenette, just for the options of more eating in. The women in the out door bar were great, loved chatting with them and they were very helpful with island information. Our room was cleaned daily. Couldn't ask for more.!

1st time visitor to San Pedro and to Mata Rocks. The staff are absolutely awesome ESPECIALLY Sherlyn....... Way to go! Hope I'm not butchering you're name, sorry if I am. The people I travelled with have been several times to this hotel and I can see why.

We went fishing and snorkeling all set up by Sherlyn. Not a single hick up, not one! If you like a clean, reasonably priced, ocean front hotel......literally ocean front, with a pool and a bar, did I mention, "all ocean front" you'll absolutely love this place!!!!

The only complaint I have is that we couldn't stay "FOR EVER"!!

Room Tip: Choose any, BUT we loved ground floor #6

This is our 2nd time staying at Mata Rocks. We came back because of the friendly staff, the cleanliness if the rooms and the opportunity to chat with guests from all over the world. It is a laid-back and friendly place, where you can hop on a free bicycle and explore the beach and downtown or just hang-out at the breakfast/bar on the beach. It faces right onto the Caribbean Sea, and all rooms have an ocean view...but some are larger than others and more comfortable (like a small studio apartment). Some of the best food on the island is at Robin's BBQ across the street...you eat whatever is on the grill (jerk chicken, curry chicken, or fish) with rice/beans and coleslaw...it's all good and inexpensive. The staff at Mata will set you up with any excursion you want at a fair price, and the reef is one of the main reasons people come to Belize...so be sure not to miss it. A cab to town is $5 US, a massage on the beach is about $20/per 30 mins., and there are several very good restaurants in town or on the beach...Licks, Wild Mango, Waragumas, and Pupusaria. Wonderful baked goods at The Baker a short walk up the street. Belize is a magical place.....a melting pot for many cultures where everyone seems to exist in harmony and happiness.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite..it is worth the price difference. Some rooms are clean, but very small.

Everyone is very friendly and fun. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Excellent value. San Pedro is a great vacation spot. Don't be afraid of street vendors or food. Good water. Great place. We will be back again

mata rocks resort was exactly what I wanted. people friendly but you could do your own thing. staff friendly and helpful. the weeks I was there the guests all got along great. chatting over breakfast, sharing tales of the day, meeting for drinks. you could go your own way too. the resort is small enough to get to know folks but the staff will help you with anything. loved the bikes but golf cart for night

Room Tip: all ocean view

My wife and I recently stayed here and loved every minute of it. We enjoyed every moment of our stay from the entrance, which included two complimentary rum punches (panty-ripper). There are bikes to use, also included that you will need to get into town. It is a 15 minute ride by bike or a 5 minute cab ride for 5USD. During the day, ride the bikes, at night you will definitely want to call for a cab. The front desk is more than willing to assist you with any of your travel needs. They assisted us with the shark ray alley tour (must do), calling a cab, bike use, and even phone use when I discovered that someone back home had been using my Debit Card to raid my checking account. The bar is nice as is the Continental breakfast offered free in the morning. The rooms were spacious and clean, poolside suites come with a kitchen, and pool and deck areas are clean, bright and inviting. Chairs and palapas are offered for guest use near the private beach. At night, it is completely safe on the beach side. Kind of remote on the road and very dark so we stayed close to home. We loved the service and grounds.

We really liked Mata Rocks, where we stayed for the second half of our honeymoon. Granted, we had come from 4 days inland--where we stayed in much more rustic accommodations--but were really happy with our stay over the next 4 nights. We loved our balcony and ocean view. The AC worked like a dream and was refreshing! The bed was comfy and the housekeeping was perfect. We also appreciated the programmable safe which helped us feel secure leaving valuables in our room. Of course, the bar and pool were fun too! I did a good amount of research prior to choosing this hotel and felt like it was the best deal for the amenities we cared about. We rented a golf cart for a few days which made exploring the island an adventure. I do agree with some other reviewers that the continental breakfast is kind of worthless. I could have made do with it (and some yogurt I purchased) for breakfast, but hubby needed more protein--but who cares when there are tons of good places to eat? The staff were helpful and kind to us. People complaining about poor swimming from the beach are making an unfair criticism. There really isn't good beach swimming ANYWHERE on the island because of the sea grass. It is not the fault of the hotel. Like many other establishments, staff keep the beach clean and are generally maintaining a tidy place. We recommend!
