On our first trip to Belize, we weren't sure what to expect, let alone from a resort on the jungle. Upon our arrival at the Mystic River Resort, we felt like a part of the family. The staff is fantastic, they learn your names and what you like, and do their best to ensure that you are well cared for.... More

I travel every year with our three children (age 8, 10, and 13) for an extended thanksgiving break as my husband has to work. Nadege made everything easy. We just had to pick which adventures suited us, and she took care of the rest. The food was fantastic at almost every meal. The room was the perfect size for our... More

Visited the resort Nov 25-29, 2014 with a friend -- mainly rainy and cool/chilly. Fabulous view of jungle and river from Purple Heart cabana # 11. Flowers decorated our cabana (wonderful design and style). Daily morning coffee/tea basket, evening fires, reusable bottle for water with lime slices (resort-provided as Belize does not recycle), and hummingbird visits. Stayed about 5 days... More

My visit to Belize started out with two great nights at Mystic River. The resort is beautifully set in the jungle overlooking the river. My friend and I didn't get to explore too much around the property because of the short time there so I wish we'd had another day to do so. Nadege and Tom were so nice and... More

We stayed just for one night in November but are booked to go back and look forward to it! Lovely spot. Although some say the roads are bad, we have travelled much further on much worse roads to other resorts in Belize. I thought location relatively close to San Ignacio was great. All rooms are individual cottages with lovely private... More

No AC or T.V. They do not advertise this on website. You absolutely need AC in the belize weather. 1 bedroom was extremely small. All units are individual but extremely tiny rooms. No way to contact staff after dinner. No phones or any method to contact them. When asked, they said security guards are always around in the night. Never... More

Beautiful small resort. Very good service. We received lots of attention from owners. Great hiking around property. Plenty of birds around the dining room. Big rooms with porches. A very enjoyable experience overall.

We stayed here for 3 nights for the first part of our Belize trip. It's a beautiful and tranquil property that feels like a jungle paradise. The food was suprisingly varied and amazing for such a small place. The guides they lined up for our ATM Cave and Tikal tours were knowledgeable and fun. And Tom and Nadege were warm... More

Our stay in Belize became a lifetime memory of world class service at The mystic river resort. The owner Nadege Thomas has assembled a terrific staff lead by Gina Garcia. These two amazing women are real gems. They both really put the fifth star in customer service and they totally exceeded our expectations. I will recommend this resort to my... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for the first part of our Belize honeymoon and could not have been happier with our decision. We opted to go the all-inclusive route (which I'm typically against), which I highly recommend both because the food is so good but also driving to another location to eat isn't easy due to area roads.
