"Beautiful, well designed jungle resort."
We really enjoyed our stay at Mystic River Resort. The rooms are excellent, plenty of space, high ceilings and fans really help keep off the heat. The paths between buildings are beautifully landscaped, and I'm sure more to come as time passes.
The staff is friendly and helpful, aside from a couple issues. One, the cleaning staff left one of our cabin's door open when they were done making our friend uncomfortable. Now, they're remote enough, I really don't think it was an issue, but still. The Other issue was somewhat larger, the gentleman at the front desk said he would make reservations for us for our next and last night at the Belize Zoo. He said we were all set, when we got there the zoo wasn't even open because of a holiday. A little honesty "oops I forgot, I'll do it now" would have saved us a bit of trouble, but we managed.
The food is ok, though like most jungle lodges it is quite overpriced, in fairness, they do need to staff and supply an entire kitchen for a few guests, it can't be easy!
Being offseason, and also so soon after the hurricane, they were still cleaning up (looked beautiful!), but their walking trails currently consist of a road and a trail in disrepair, the trails could use some more work in my personal opinion, but maybe few people really want to walk off on trails in the jungle.
Overall our experience was good, and the resort is only a half dozen years old, I'm sure it will just get better and better too.
