We had an incredible stay at mystic river resort! It was the first stop in our journey to Belize and it really set the time for our entire trip. It is truly a magical place, the jungle is alive 24/7 and this resort is in the midst of all of it. We were amazed at how much the resort had to offer, tubbing and canoeing on the river, guided bird watching, a lovely pool, spa services. All the rooms face the river so you have a river view no matter what room you're in. We also had a mishap with our rental vehicle and the staff was super accommodating and assisted us greatly! We were much appreciative at how much they went above and beyond for us. Some things to note: - be prepared there is no AC in the room, but there are fans - if you are going out for the day (without a tour), the restaurant staff can prepare you a lunch too go - there isn't wifi in there rooms, there are 5 areas to access wifi: office, cabana in the middle of the property, restaurant, bar, and pool (we didn't have a good connection at the pool one thou) - if you take the canoe down river into San Ignacio (2.5-3 hours), they will send someone to go get the canoe and also bring you back to the resort If I could rate this 6 stars I would, it was a once in a lifetime jungle experience for us!

Beautiful but expensive. Other resorts in the area are nearly as nice and a lot cheaper.

Beautiful setting and great educational info on flora and fauna. Good food better service. Could use better information for guests on trail conditions and access to tubing, risks of steps down to river, etc. More activities perhaps for seniors, the fastest growing group for travel.

All rooms face the river, with quiet balconies to look over it. The bar and restaurant is also facing the river with magnificent views. Management was very kind throughout the stay and always offered suggestions and tips to making it more momerable. I was very impressed and would stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at this resort. Beautiful property, terrific food, helpful staff, super nice owners and managers.

This is a fantastic place to stay in the Cayo district. The location is beautiful (you need a 4x4 or request to be picked up by the resort). The staff are extremely helpful and the food is delicious as well as reasonably priced. I highly recommend the Mystic River Resort.
