Honeymoon Trip
We just got back from four nights at the Mystic River as part of our honeymoon trip. Our stay was absolutely fantastic. The setting is gorgeous and there is plenty to do on the property: pools, river tubing, canoeing, hiking, and more. While the hotel itself is wonderful, the staff is even better. They really enhance the whole experience. They were so friendly, hospitable, and helpful. They catered to our every whim and helped set up all of our tours. Thanks to Petra and her team for making us feel so comfortable. Three caveats I’ll mention: First, the hotel is a 15-20 minute drive from town. So if you want to go to town for any meals, you’ll need a ride there. Fortunately the food at the hotel was very good. Second, there’s no AC. There are fans in the rooms and it cools off at nighttime, but it’s likely going to be a bit warmer when you first go to bed than you might be used to. Third, the wildlife can be loud. That’s part of the experience, of course! But if you’re a light sleeper, you may want to pack some earplugs :) Overall we would happily return to Mystic River again. It was wonderful and we can’t speak highly enough about it!

8/10 Very good

Wonderful people but rough jungle bugs
The property is beautiful and charming. The staff makes you feel like family. They are wonderful. I had an amazing massage. The tours and guides were fantastic. The food is good but very overpriced and they should be more competitive since you’re stranded there if you don’t have a rental car. They need to seal the rooms off better. There was a post rain flying termite incident that is part of jungle life but we had hundreds of termites in our room and that was one of the worse nights ever in a hotel. My children were traumatized and it was horrible. The next night there was a scorpion on my daughters bed. No AC and tons of bugs in the room was rough on us and we were very ready to leave. We could have handled the heat but the termites and scorpions were more than we could bear. They gave us a small discount, but only after we requested one due to very little sleep. My entire family of four had to share a bed because of the termites and scorpion in the kids room. It was not relaxing and we spent thousands of dollars on food and activities.
