Hotel Description

Sometimes a hotel’s address says a lot. Matachica’s, officially, is “5 Miles North of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.” Suffice it to say that they don’t have a problem with traffic noise. Set along a secluded white sand beach and reachable only by motorboat, the place looks more like some bohemian castaway commune than a typical resort, with its small collection of colorful thatch-roofed casitas scattered amidst the palm trees. It’s tempting to call it a back-to-basics vision of the Caribbean beach hideaway, one that’s all about the setting, but in truth the hotel is too irrepressibly charming to let all the soft white sand and warm crystalline water fully steal the show. And anyway, when you’ve got a spacious private casita to yourself, you’re never really roughing it, no matter how rustic the décor.

Wooden slatted windows, stone and tile floors, simple rattan furniture, a lazy ceiling fan turning circles above the bed — it all adds up to some deeply unpretentious living spaces, and ones that feel in harmony with their low-key beachside surroundings. Yet there are plenty of soft touches to keep things in balance, from the Frette linens and feather duvets to an AC unit ready to be switched on when the fan and the breezes just won’t suffice.

The best of the accommodations are set a stone’s throw from the surf, though even from the most basic casitas, it’s only a minute’s walk across the warm white sand until you’re at the water’s edge. At every level, the casitas come with their own private patios strung with hammocks, for when stepping out the door onto the beach just seems too arduous a path to relaxation.

Things can get a bit more strenuous if you wish, but only by degrees. The staff will gladly set you up with sea kayaks, snorkel gear, a pedal boat or bike — all free to use. And off-site there are jungles and caves and Mayan ruins to explore. Best of all, the world’s second-largest barrier reef is just offshore — an unspoiled diver’s paradise, in a setting where the effect isn’t undone once you step back on shore.

Please note: Matachica requires a 3-night minimum stay, and cannot accommodate children under the age of 14.

How to get there:

Matachica is located 5 miles north of the town of San Pedro, on Ambergris Caye. Most guests arrive in San Pedro via a short flight from Belize City, operated by Tropic Air. Upon arrival at the San Pedro airport, a representative from Matachica will be on hand to meet you and escort you to the resort via water taxi.
