While these exclusive facilities are only for adults, some of these resorts open their facilities to the public. Of importance to note is that ‘adults-only’ means no children allowed. The minimum age permitted to stay at said hotels is 16 years and up. 

Matachica Resort

Located five miles north of San Pedro Town, Matachica is an authentic getaway surrounded by tamed wildlife, natural beauty, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. The secluded, adults-only beach resort offers its guests their own beach house during their stay, each with their own private veranda and hammock. Aside from total privacy, tranquility, and delicious food from their award-winning restaurant Mambo’s, you can enjoy a massage from their award-winning Jade Spa too. Experience it overnight or with an exclusive day pass

PUR Boutique Cabanas 


This adults-only micro-resort is located less than a mile north of the center of the island’s town of San Pedro. PUR Boutique Cabanas is found just off the northern road, not too far from the beach. It is equipped with a taco bar, a swimming pool, a swim-up pool bar, and cabanas, found just steps away. The area has a good vibe and although it is open to the public with a minimum age requirement of 18 years, certain restrictions still guarantee your privacy and total relaxation. 

Costa Blu Beach Resort 

The beautiful Costa Blu Beach Resort is seven miles north of town and surrounded by beautiful vegetation while flanked by the stunning Caribbean Sea. It is very close to the Belize Barrier Reef System offering the opportunity to take a tour of the nearby marine parks like Bacalar Chico and Mexico Rocks.
