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.

I absolutely loved my stay at Mystic River as a solo traveler! The staff were very helpful and accommodating, the rooms were beautiful, and the views were absolutely BREATHTAKING!! I would definitely come back again! All of the staff knew my name and greeted me as such. It is a real jungle oasis. It’s also across the river from the botanical garden. I’d strongly suggest taking a ride on the canoe for the experience. I rented a car and it’s not far from town, Which was a nice experience. I loved how they went above and beyond to help me find some items I was looking for. The only con I have is with dining options for a pescatarian. The food was great, I just would’ve loved some fish with a meal.
