Tom and Nadege Thomas have created a beautiful gem of hospitality at this comfortable eco-lodge in the Mountain Pine Ridge of Belize. This was the first visit to Belize for my son and me, and we decided to spend three days in the interior before heading to the coast. We were met at the airport in Belize City by one...

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...

Our cottage was spacious and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the Macal river. The food is excellent, with specials for dinner every evening. At breakfast in the open-air dining room, we had a show of toucans, feeding on the watermelon rinds and other fruits set out for them on a nearby platform. The owners, Tom and Nadege, are very friendly...

We stayed here for 3 nights and we were the only guests at that time, but that didn't deter the staff from making us feel very welcome. The setting is ideally placed by the river in the jungle. Each chalet is large and well provisioned with excellent bathroom facilities and a private balcony on which you can sit and watch...

While we devoted the majority of our vacation in Belize to the beaches of Ambergris Caye, we also spent three nights in the forested foothills at Mystic River Resort. Literally everything at this resort is located overlooking the Macal River and the setting couldn't be more beautiful. The meticulously maintained grounds are landscaped with blooming tropical plants, situated in the...

Greetings from Mystic River Resort! We are humbled by the great review and appreciative of you for sharing your experience with our TripAdvisor family and the wider audience. We agree fully with your recommendation that the 4th night is needed to take advantage of more adventure tours. That will surely allow one to have enough time to at least do...

This is a quiet, well maintained resort in the jungle. They have done an excellent job not just clearing all the trees but nestling the cabins within the natural environment.
