Mata Chica

The Cayes

Situated on arguably one of the most sought after stretches of Ambergis coastline - is Mata Chica. Facing the translucent waters of the Caribbean, resting in your hammock outside your brightly painted cabana, you know that it’s going to be difficult to beat this. There is a wonderfully relaxed yet chic vibe at Mata Chica. The decorative style is unique and eclectic - from the bright painted murals to the embroidered Indian wall hangings.

Why we recommend it:

  • 14 spacious, individual cabanas
  • Outstanding food and service
  • Lovely beach, which you can swim from
  • they offer kayaks to reach the reef




There are 14 individual thatched cabanas most which have a sea view. The elegant mahogany wooden doors and shutters open onto the sandy beach outside and the rooms are light and breezy, with high ceilings.  The cabanas are extremely spacious with sitting areas and queen or king size beds.  Each has en-suite facilities with air conditioning and ceiling fans, though leaving the mosquito covered shutters open and letting the sea breeze cool your room is an excellent alternative!

The resort offers complimentary snorkelling gear, kayaks and there are also small sailing boats for rental.  Their restaurant is renowned across the island and people travel here in the evening simply for the exquisite dining experience, which is first class.  Overall, this is a superb option.
