We did not expect the superlative service and excellent food that we encountered during our recent stay at the Mystic River Resort. I had done extensive research on TripAdvisor but somehow still did not get that the philosophy at Mystic River is to "take care of the guest" in every way possible. From the amazing excursions they took us on... More

This is a true treasure! Similar to Chris Blackwell's $550 a night places in Jamaica! This place has an abundance of kind, capable, gracious, dedicated, and seasoned staff (about 40 to 8 occupying guests when my party visited) who cater to your every need. The hotel is located on a very large parcel of land on a beautiful river which... More

Loved this place - very friendly staff, clean rooms, beautifull river views, great food, oversize bathrooms.. They have a lot of cute farm animals on the property - horses (horse riding available), goats (so friendly)..

This hotel was absolutely stunning! It's a long bumpy ride to get there, but when you arrive, it's like you've entered this secret paradise. The grounds are covered with all kinds of beautiful trees and flowers, and at any point in time, you can just stand there and hear the sounds of various tropical birds, happily chirping away. You really... More

We had a wonderful time here. Beautiful rooms, lovely views of the rivers, gorgeous grounds with lots to see and good food. Can't say enough about the wonderful service, felt very taken care of and welcomed by these local people. Hoping to go back with our kids next time!

The owners have poured themselves into the place. We did go during the dry season so it wasn't as lush and green as i suppose it could be. The landscape is manicured and there are so many workers running around to maintain this place to the pristine condition that it is. The food was the best we had on the... More

Let's see - how many trips does this make to Mystic River? Seven? Eight? Who's counting!! I write archaeological thrillers and this beautiful resort is a perfect landing place for visiting the ruins of eastern Guatemala and Belize. It's truly a 5-star place in the jungle - peaceful, serene and tranquil, but close to the Mayan sites plus zip lining,... More

Wow. What can I say? I mean… wow. Okay, another long review here, so if you want the highs and lows, just scan the bullet points below. Otherwise, skip that and go down to the proper review… JUST THE BASICS Pros: • Go in the low season, and you’ll be one of the only guests there (i.e. the whole resort... More

The three of us visited Mystic River Resort in late July. This is low season in Belize. The place is immaculate, well laid out and integrates perfectly with the jungle. The staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We were one of only 3 families there at the time and often were the only ones in the restaurant. The restaurant was... More

our family of 5 stayed for 4 lovely days in late june, and had a brilliant time, despite less than perfect weather. the owners make sure to visit with each and every guest to be sure every detail is perfect, and they also make you feel very welcome in "their home" -as they live on the beautiful property. each cabin...
