Far from the madding crowds as you can get. No phones, no tv. A great base to discover the Mayan ruins, caves and rain forest. The local guides employed by the hotel, we had Ember, superb and very knowledgeable. Our hosts at the hotel treated all us guests as long lost friends, food was simple but very good and most...

I just had a short but wonderful stay at Mystic River. I could go on about the ATM cave, Ben the guide, the on-property hiking trails and all the excursions and activities that I didn't get a chance to partake in, but they're all been covered here many times. What I would like to talk about is the awesome experience... More

The property is very beautiful and well kept. However, I would not recommend staying here if you are traveling alone. First, the owner Nadege addressed all the couples every night at dinner, but never approached me. I had to approach her if I had a question. At dinner, they sat me alone every night. There is nothing to do on... More

Originally we had only planned to stay in Belize City, but at the last minute we threw in a side trip to Tikal by way of San Ignacio. We chose MRR because of the high rating and we're supremely glad we did. This place made all the difference of our impression of Belize and its people. From the moment we... More

We had 3 of 11 rooms in this beautiful jungle resort. The cottages were all very inviting with gorgeous wood work throughout. The property is vast and well maintained. All of the staff we meet were professional, caring and accommodating. The owners maintained a presence throughout our stay visiting us at many meals. We took four excursions with their guides...

When you decide to stay five nights at a resort in the jungle in Belize, the people in charge are going to make or break your stay. Yes, the location is beautiful, but Tom and Nadege, the owners of this resort, make you feel just a little bit like family. I got a hug when we left. Unlike a more... More

We stayed for three nights the second week of December, 2015. The location is beautiful and the staff and owners are friendly and helpful.

My family of 4 stayed at the Resort for four days in January 2016. We had a wonderful time, and we were very well taken care of by Mystic River Resort.

Our family had a great time at Mystic River. The staff and guides were fantastic. The resort is very eco focused. We wish that we stayed more than the four nights as there were many more activities and adventures as well as just relaxing on the 160 acre property.
