Mystic River is a beautiful eco lodge. The cottages were lovely and comfortable. We had coffee delivered to our door every morning - and we loved drinking it out on the balcony which overlooked the river and jungle - watching Toucans and other birds. The food was good in the restaurant and the service excellent. Our guide (Ben) was exceptional... More

Lovely resort with personal, well appointed villas. Be aware that there is no A/C! They have fans in the rooms, but it wasn't quite enough on 80 degree nights! We had a wonderful couples massage at the spa and enjoyed several excursions from the resort. Our guide, Ben, was the most educated and informative guide we've ever had! Ben was... More

The room was quaint and beautiful. Service was excellent. We felt safe and secure in the resort. 24-hour security was provided. The reason we didn't rate this place at a 5/5 was there was no air conditioning. It was very muggy, and difficult to sleep in. The interior of the room however was very well-kept, and updated. The grounds were... More

We had come to Mystic River for dinner and were impressed by the security person, Steve, who greeted us and showed us to the Restaurant for us to determine if we would make a reservation for the evening.

My husband and I were at mystic river for 3 nights in late April. This was absolutely the highlight of our week long trip! From the minute we got there we had wonderful service, and was surrounded by beautiful, quiet nature. The rooms are lovely, with decks overlooking the river/jungle.

This is a small resort. The 11 cabins are spread around a hilly landscaped terrain. We stayed in #1 which was the most remote, but we liked that. It gave us the feeling of being alone in the rainforest with a good view of the river below. The room was immaculate. The dining room is halfway down a steep hill.... More

We booked here based on the location and reviews but really didn’t fully understand what the property itself had to offer. Most hotels in Belize are simply a place to stay as activities happen off-property that the hotel may coordinate for you. Mystic River has the river in their backyard and easily viewable from the balcony. It's a very tranquil... More

Food is great and the staff is very courteous. I was pleasantly suprised and appreciated the fact that while you are spending your beautiful quiet time at the resort, the staff doesn't bother you so you truly feel like you are away in paradise.
