Affordable little place with a great beach bar Dec 17, 2009
If you stay at Mata Rocks, you'll feel like part of the family from the second you arrive. All of the staff there are tremendous.

The beach bar is almost second to none on the island.

Enjoy a Belikin for me!

The Only Place to Stay in Ambergris Caye Oct 03, 2005
OMG! I can't believe I had not written a review about Mata Rocks yet! For those who know me, Belize is my favorite yearly destination and the only place I will stay is Mata Rocks. I've been fortunate to become friends with the owners, Liz and Terry, over the past couple of years. Both of them, as well as the rest of the staff, take excellent care of their guests, especially repeat customers! Although I could exchange my timeshare and stay somewhere else for basically nothing, I'd rather pay and stay with them each year.

I found them by accident my first trip down there when searching online for smaller, less hectic resorts, that still offered beachfront access. They are located south of the main part of San Pedro but it is still accessible by both beach and street walking (beach much faster) or cabs of course.

They only have 18 rooms I believe - 6 suites and 12 regular rooms. All rooms feature a mini fridge, cable TV, and new last year in 07 - wi-fi access! The junior suites feature a kitchenette which is nice. All rooms have a view and some have double beds.

Although no onsite dining, there is the restaurant next door at Banana Beach which has fabulous food, most especially their fresh ceviche! Mata Rocks has free continental breakfast and usually what we do is hit the grocery store a few blocks down and bring in lunch meats, etc for afternoon and then go into town for dinner.

Squirrel's Nest is the beach bar which is one of the best places to hang out - there is a TV and the sporting events are always on if available. Sherlynn and and Criselda are the two bartenders who you need to make best friends with - they will treat you right and take care of all your needs!

One of the elements I love most about Mata Rocks is that I always feel safe here - many people worry about resorts in other countries but Terry and Liz go to great lengths to employ and retain valuable employees. I've seen many of the same people all 3 years I've stayed with them and trust me, they recognize you year after year which is a nice feeling.

There is a freshwater pool onsite and obvious beach access. All tours can be booked through the bar or front office and they pick you up at the dock right at the hotel. Golf cart rentals are available across the street or next door through Banana Beach. Free use of bicycles for hotel guests as well. And if you want to get married there - they can arrange that...attended a wedding there two years ago and it was amazing!

Transportation from Belize City airport is a breeze. When you make reservations, let Liz know if you want her to handle your arrangements to the Caye. She always books our flights on Tropic Air and includes them in our total. In addition, they offer free taxi service back and forth to San Pedro airstrip.

Make sure to check rates when booking - they have special deals always going. One of the best is usually stay 6 nights and get the 7th free. They have other options like honeymoon and diving packages as well.

One of the things I've been told by other Belize travelers is the people who stay at Mata Rocks tend to be a unique and fun get to know the other guests and sometimes form friendships like I did, which is what brings me back each year!

Mata Rocks Resort Overview

This cluster of white buildings, only one mile south of San Pedro, is reminiscent of a little Greek hotel. Even the decks are painted white. This is a small homegrown hotel with a friendly staff and quality product.

Arrivals are given a welcome drink as they check in. The two-story building folds around a shallow pool. There is no restaurant, but a Continental breakfast is included and snacks are served at the palapa bar where guests gather for happy hour to exchange tour stories. A 20-minute walk to town holds several dining options. Using one of the complimentary bikes makes it even more convenient.

Accommodations vary, but most have wood floors and brightly painted cement walls with matching spreads and curtains. Standard rooms come with queen beds and suites feature kings. All are air-conditioned with ceiling fans, TVs, refrigerators, clocks, coffeemakers and safes, and come with shower-only baths.

This charming budget hotel is an excellent value, cleaner than some of the more expensive options, and run by a very friendly staff. Perfect for divers and guests who prefer to explore town a little in the evenings. This is a great value, especially compared to bigger places like Banyan Bay. Rates are based on double occupancy. Charges for extra adults may apply and will be due directly to the hotel. Guests fly internationally into Belize City and then must schedule a 15-minute flight to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, prior to departing for your trip. This flight can be arranged through Tropic Air 1-800-422-3435 or Maya Island Air 1-800-521-1247. Another option is to take a water taxi to San Pedro information is available at the airport.
