Great view, good value, not great service

I came here with my husband and another couple. We were impressed with the view our room and most other rooms had, especially at the price. It has a nice beach and cute thatch roof bar and is in a great location. The rooms were nice and made up each day. Most staff was not very friendly or helpful at all. Elliot was the only one that greeted us with a smile and gave helpful information. The continental breakfast wasn't very good and consisted of only toast, pastries, fruit and coffee. We would have liked to have eggs or bacon. Overall we were pleased with our stay other than the service and breakfast.

Nice small resort.

We stayed here in October, 2016 and had a pretty good stay. The rooms were very clean, as were the grounds. The small pool was great for a mid-day cool down dip. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, as well. We even met the owners and they were great too. The negatives. Like Most places on Ambergris Caye, the seagrass makes walking into the water daunting, lots of seagrass in piles on the little beach (very small since the hurricane). The rooms were beautiful, with good AC if that matters to you, though the shower in one unit didn't want to produce hot water. The resort is also rather far south of town, you'll probably want a golf cart here. All in all, we've stayed at nicer on the island, but also for much more money. This place is definitely worth the money, nice, quiet and private, clean and functional, good sized rooms with great staff.

Room was nice ...

... however, 24 hrs after arriving on the island we were in the SP ER, as I was being casted for a broken left patella (knee cap) sustained on the "black ice" of the concrete surrounding the resort pool (no horseplay was involved). Our 8 night stay was a bust! After finally arriving home to Ohio I emailed MR asking for their insurance company name so a liability claim for out of pocket medical expenses could be filed.Terry sent the name of their agent at RF&G Ins Co. Two weeks later, this agent emailed to say they hold no policy for Mata Rocks. We rejected MR's offer of a 6 day voucher valid for 1 year, instead accepting a check for that time period. Im still in a brace but healing very well! After my15 emails to MR and 3 calls to our attorney, I have to say to Terry that lying to your guests and not taking care of them in such a serious incident is not good management practice.

Yes it is a intimate resort

Yes it is a intimate resort hotel that covers the basics well. Clean comfortable rooms with a great view and a nice beach front. I would also add that our room had the best bed we slept on during our trip to Belize. While we were staying they were rebuilding the Bar/service area damaged by the Hurricane the month before. They also had at least two rooms being remodeled so I am sure this affected our overall experience but it was still a pleasant and adequate experience. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Well appointed and quiet

I stayed here one night while on business. The room was clean and had quality fittings thru out. The pool was small but fine for size of hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast provided which was included in price of room was basic but enough to get your day started. Hotel was located a bit out from the center of San Pedro and you would need a taxi to get into town. Overall a good hotel if you are seeking a nice place to stay without the noise of being in the town.
