Another amazing trip to Mystic River in Belize! This resort provides family friendly and adult friendly activities. The food and service was wonderful. We went zip lining and toured the ATM cave with our children. It was such a unique experience for them. They are ready to go back today. We stayed in one of the larger units that was... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I'm the author of archaeological novels. What better place for a base in the jungle than Mystic River Resort? It's close to a lot of major ruins in Belize and Guatemala and the seasoned, knowledgable guides are the best I've found. Tom and Nadege Thomas are masters at providing five-star service in a quiet environment. You can sit on the... More

My friend and I were just out four wheeling in the jungle and came upon this place. It sits right on the banks of the Macaw River, the accommodations are modern, the staff was very helpful. They are building Honeymoon cabins that will have there own private pool, perfect place for a honeymoon :). Oh, they make a killer Margarita... More

I recently went to Belize with a couple of college buddies later part of August, we graduated over 40 years ago, following discussion we had had at our school reunion in June on the subject. The flight on SWA from Houston to Belize was approximately 2 hours. The resort we were staying at, "Mystic River," had a driver and vehicle... More

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Mystic River in early September. We stayed in a one-bedroom casita overlooking the Macal river for four days and spent each day going off the resort on a guided excursion. With our guide, the inimitable Ben Cruz, we went cave tubing at Nohoch Che'en, swimming/wading/climbing into the ATM cave, walking around... More

This resort is in a league of its own, very private and relaxing. There was a lot of attention spent on the details, it seems every need and luxury has been thought of!

Hi There, Thank you for the great review. It was a pleasure to host and share the experiences of our little country with you.

We arrived several days after the storm rolled through for a 7 day stay and was unaware that all of the attractions were closed due to flooding or accessibility but we made the best of the situation. We went to a site in Guatemala, Tikal which had escaped most of the damage from the hurricane. Was a very nice day... More

Beautiful resort. Rented a car and drove from airport in Belize City. There are NO road signs. Visited during hurricane. Road was easily passable. Beautiful grounds with hiking trails and orchard. Incredible views of river. Food served at restaurant is excellent and the people who work there are really nice.

Greetings from Mystic River, Thank you for the great review. It was a pleasure to host you and to share our beautiful property and country with you as well.

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!
