Great place

Pros: location, staff, amenities, coconut mojitos, food
Location: So much to do, snorkel, kayek, paddle board, wind surf, sit by beach and pool, good bar
If you are looking for party central this is not your place. I hate writing this good review because I would like to keep this place a secret. Great place for great service, good food, great activities, so close to the reef you can kayak out there to snorkel. Grounds and amenities are beautiful.

Beautiful hotel closey accessible to the reef

Pros: Kayaks, gorgeous sandy beach, tons of luxurious outdoor furniture to enjoy the sun and shade.
Cons: Staff cheeriness and attitude of wanting the guests to be super happy.
Location: The city of San Pedro could use some charm. But getting everywhere by boat was really cool. Go to the Jamaican restaurant 10 minutes away.
Our trip was wonderful and we enjoyed the property very much. However most of the staff act like employees, not like they really enjoy their job and really want you to have an excellent time. The exception to this was Sherry, who was overbrimming with cheeriness and super fun to interract with. We would not recommend the fishing excursion but the diving was absolutely top-notch (Belize Divers Pro shop) and the rest of the resort activities were super fun. Our room was beautiful, well air conditioned, and we loved jumping in the kayak to go straight out to the reef and seeing about five huge schools of fish. Overall I'd give it a four out of five stars. If the rest of the staff really were happy I think I'd give it five stars.

Perfect getaway spot

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I was only here for one night, wish I could have stayed longer. Restaurant is one of the best on the island, many people come from other hotels here for dinner. Continental breakfast included was lovely. You can kayak, snorkel, or just chill at the pool. Decoration is a mix from many countries, balinese mixed with Mexican and Guatemalan.

Quiet, great setting, great food, great service.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
We were hoping for better snorkeling, which disappointed. If you looking for a peaceful get-away, it's perfect. The town, accessible by boat, does not offer much to see or do.

Matachica was a dream vacation

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
My husband and I went to Matachica for our honeymoon and had a better time than we could have dreamed. From the moment we were greeted at the airport til the time we departed we were treated incredibly. The staff was so accommodating and truly seemed to care that we had the best time. The food was unbelievable, drinks were amazing and the amenities were perfect. We did everything from paddle boarding and kayaking to snorkeling through a tour with matachica. If you are debating this resort...DONT. Just go and have the best time!

Beautiful resort

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, beautiful scenery
The grounds and rooms are gorgeous and really well maintained. The landscaping is impeccably maintained and is very colorful. The pool is very pretty and you can borrow a kayak and paddle out to snorkel at the reef by yourself and take as long as you want. The water here is crystalline and warm. The first room we were in was a smaller sea breeze bungalow and was very quiet and relaxing. The only con was that the bed was pretty hard. A few days into our stay, we were given an unexpected complimentary upgrade to a much larger casita by the pool. It was also tastefully decorated and the fans were really nice and very quiet and this bed was much softer and more comfortable. The only drawback to this room was the shower which was a tepid dribble. There was construction going on behind the rooms we were in which was a little noisy, but since we spent most of the day out doing things it really didn't hamper our enjoyment of the resort. The staff at the resort were amazing. They were extremely courteous and always ready to help with anything. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. They were perfect! The food was also very good. The prices were a little high, but things on an island do cost more. There were a few dishes that were a little sweet or aggressively sauced but overall the quality and consistency was terrific. I was very sad to leave and would love to go back and would highly recommend this resort.

charming bungalows right on the beach

My favorite spot in Belize's Ambergris Caye. Charming (think 'bohem-chic') bungalows with original artwork and fancy sheets. Lovely grounds, attentive staff, international vibe and one of the better restaurants outside of downown San Pedro.
