Congratulations New England Gal! We spent a week at Mata Rocks in December shortly after the pool area was completed, and enjoyed it immensely! The pool area is small, but just perfect for a quick dip to cool off from the hot sun, or for a change from the salt water. The beach out front is very swimmable - not too much sea grass. There's a convenient little market across the street for provisions - water, beers, etc. and the suites were a nice size.
We spent the best part of our week camped out in the sand, just steps from the Squirrel's Nest, reading trashy beach novels, soaking up the rays and sipping on the Belikins! The place is nice and small, so you quickly become part of the community - you find out what folks have planned for the day over your morning coffee; and find out how their day turned out over cocktails at Happy Hour! The week went by too quickly! Filipa and Erica are quite accommodating and will happily arrange whatever you need to have a great stay. Enjoy!
