Matachica Beach Resort has been especially designed for you to enjoy the best that the country of Belize and central America have to offer in the forms of food, elegant refinement and adventures both on land and in the sea.
Situated on Ambergris Caye, the largest of the islands on Belize’s reef, the second largest in the world, Matachica Beach Resort is 5 miles north of San Pedro, the island’s town and so although close enough for convenience, far enough away to enjoy seclusion. The resort is built alongside a beautiful white sandy beach and so allows access to all the water sports you could hope for yet is close enough to San Pedro’s airport to also allow you to sample some of the adventures the jungles of the mainland have to offer.
This resort has a large variety of accommodations to offer, ensuring that there is something to suit everybody. The variety includes Luxury Beachfront Villas, Deluxe Beachfront Casitas, Reef View Suites, and a 2-bedroom sea breeze villa, Sea Breeze Suites, Beachfront Casitas and Sea View Cabanas.
Food & Dining
The resort’s restaurant, The Mambo, caters for breakfast with combinations ranging from Matachica’s Famous Veggie Omelette to Crispy Original Belgian Waffles topped with homemade pineapple marmalade, bacon or sausage. For lunch guests can enjoy delights like the Matachica Chopped Caesar Salad with Jerk Chicken or Chef Reynaldo’s Special Seafood Salad Burrito, grilled seafood with pineapple-lime marinade, then rolled in flour tortilla with sour cream, crisp lettuce, tomato, avocado and cilantro.
The entrees for a 3 course dinner include Deep Blue which is a mix consisting of fresh grilled snapper, shrimp, scallops, calamari, lobster (in season), fresh vegetables and an array of sauces. After dinner why not try a local cocktail like a Caribbean Cruiser containing a mix of Peach Schnapps, Blue Curacao, White Rum, Apple and Watermelon Pucker, Grenadine and Pineapple Juice.
One of the resort’s best assets is its scenery but added to that and the world class restaurant, the resort also boasts an Infinity Pool and a Jacuzzi plus the jade Spa where an assortment of massages and treatments are available.
Staff & Service
As friendly and helpful as the staffs are, they are also aware that many guests want a secluded, romantic get-a-way and so know when to respect a guest’s privacy.
With the Caribbean Sea and the second largest reef just outside your bedroom door it may be hard to drag yourself away from endless snorkeling, diving, fishing or just lazing on the beach but if you can and want to, arrangements can be made for some mainland adventures such as zip lining and cave tubing or a visit to one of the many famous Mayan ruins.
Being 5 miles from San Pedro town will afford you a great opportunity to sample the transport that locals use, like a water taxi but perhaps most unusual of all is the islander’s favorite mode of transport, the golf cart. Golf carts are available for hire by the hour or by the day and by renting one you can not only see all that the island has to offer but also enjoy a somewhat unique experience at the same time.
