Mystic River Resort is one of a class of jungle relaxation that you will not find anywhere else in Belize. The idea of sitting in front of the mystic river in the evening sipping your favorite cocktail is so relaxing. Later on in the evening the Egrets fly by in a V shaped formation back to where they come from,...

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...

You would never stumble upon this place on your own. It is quite aways from any main road. I was uneasy getting there but to my surprise this resort was beautiful. The grounds are amazing. Very peaceful. The rooms are fantastic. I felt like I was in Lake Tahoe, CA yet in a jungle setting. Incredibly peaceful and the food...

Currently backpacking through Central America and got taken to this hotel as a birthday treat from my boyfriend. Absolutely stunning views, great staff, beautiful property. I especially loved the coffee delivered to our room every morning which I would then enjoy on the balcony. I really felt like I was in the middle of the jungle. We did the ATM...

Great cabin in the jungle, located right above the Macal river. The resort is a wonderful place to relax (because there's not much else to do there). The resort organized an excellent afternoon outing for us to Big Rock Falls (highly recommended) in their Polaris four wheeler with a very informative guide, and we drove our rental Jeep to nearby...

We stayed at the Mystic River Resort our first few nights in Belize. It was a great experience. Staff and owner were very nice and treated us like friends.

This is a gem in the jungle! It is a smaller resort that is ideally located next to a small river. This is definitely the place to go to get away from it all. We stayed for 4 nights and wish we had stayed a little longer. We stayed in #12 which was ideally located and as a bonus has...
