We extended our stay, not once, but twice. This property is so lush, beautiful, and friendly. The staff are extremely accommodating and warm. There really isn't a need to book your excursions in advance. Relax, decide what you want to do on a specific day, and allow the staff to arrange things for you. Saves lots of time. Food and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 August 2016

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...

My sister and I recently traveled to Belize and couldn't be happier with our stay at Mystic River Resort. The resort is absolutely beautiful with so much attention to detail in everything from the samples of the most divine smelling homemade body scrubs in the rooms to the dry room where you can assure your soaking wet clothes and shoes...

We just returned from three days in the jungle at Mystic River, and then four days at Ambergris Caye. Being a beach person, I was mainly looking forward to the latter portion of the trip, and had rather low expectations of being inland. But I was very pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable our jungle experience was. The Mystic River Resort...

My husband and I just left the Mystic River Resort yesterday after a 3 night stay. It was a great experience for us but if you're not a nature lover you will likely hate it. You're very secluded from everything and there's not much to do on the resort other than hike, eat and drink. We rented a car so...
