Hey everyone,

I'm back on the board and looking for feedback from anyone who's seen or experienced the new fresh water pool and ocean front suits at Mata Rocks.

For those of you who've been chatting and sharing info with me already know that we are coming down on 3/29 (on my birthday) for our vacation/honeymoon (wedding on 4/2). Mata Rocks has put together a very nice honeymoon package for us and we are (as you all know) VERY excited.

I'm looking for any and all opinions about Mata Rocks. Don't hold back now.

Thanks in advance!
New England Girl

Could you let me know how you went arranging your wedding plans? Is your trip a package deal including airfare from New England and hotel or did you book separately. My boyfriend and I are thinking of getting married in Belize and I was just wondering where to begin!! Thanks for any help you could offer.

Hi anniegirl:

We booked everything directly ourselves. The airfare with US Air from Boston. When we contacted Mata Rocks (matarocks@aotws.com) directly they put together a honeymoon package for us that also includes some tours and stuff like that. We have a wedding coordinator (travltour@btl.net) referred by Mata Rocks who coordinates getting the minister, flowers, filing of all the licenses, ect. We found the photographer on the AC website. Her name is Kay Scott (kscott@blt.net) and we have "chatted" extensively with her and are very impressed thus far. It was with her help that we picked our beach wedding location and time.

We researched restaurants on the AC website too and found the one we are having our celebration dinner at after the wedding.

So, everything is pretty much covered for the wedding piece of our Belize experience and we feel very blessed to have had it all fall together so nicely.

I wish you & your fiance well in your wedding plans. I also recommend keeping your eyes on this message board as we have found everyone involved very helpful, the exchange of information is superior to any tour book about Belize and they are all a joy to interact with.

Recommend you check with both Caribbean Villas Hotel and Sundiver Beach Resort for information on wedding planning. Both resorts have planned and executed many weddings. CV is south of town, about a 12-15 minute walk to town and Sundiver is north of town, about a 15 minute boat ride. Happy wedding, honeymoon & marriage!

Depends how you want to get married; Victoria House, Potrofino, Mata Chica; I live in Belize, and stayed in 2 of them; they're the absolute top!
Live and let live

Hi Johnboy,

It's so good to hear your feedback. We don't have any doubts that we will enjoy our stay at Mata Rocks but were looking for affirmation - which you provided.

Thanks for the congrats too! We can't wait. Only 33 days until we land!!!!!!!

Oh - and Toad - we get free champagne as part of our honeymoom package so I guess that means we do get free drinks! Looking forward to the bubbly!

I stayed at Mata Rocks last June, before the pool, but I absolutely loved it! It was small and intimate, all the guests commune at the Squirrel's Nest and share stories about diving, tours, etc, they have a BBQ grill they let you use if you go fishing and it was close enough to walk to town. It has a "family" feel to it and by the end of your stay, you'll feel like you've known everyone there all your lives! Congrats on the wedding and make sure to tell us all about it when you get back! smile
