My family of 5 (kids ages 10,12 and 15) stayed at Pooks Hill for 3 nights, we had a great time, love the laid back vibe, the huts were perfect. We did the nighttime jungle walk which was really cool and explored the many trails around the property and took a dip in the river. Pooks is located in a...

We are so happy that we selected Pook's Hill for two nights. It was an awesome and memorable experience. Here are our highlights: **The Bird Cabana- was so cool like a tree house, the thatched roofs, the open windows that allowed the cool breeze to come through- no need for AC, mattresses were comfortable and towels smelled good; love all...

Had decided on this lodge after seeing some bird watching trip reports. Vicki runs this lodge with a lot of passion. Adrian picked up up from La Milpa. The location is in the forest with cabanas. We had all our meals and Vicki joined us when free. The food was very good and all meals were different with choices.Our main...

We stayed at Pook's Hill for three nights as part of a birding tour of Belize. Walks around the premises (which featured its own Mayan ruin -- like every place we stayed in Belize) afforded good looks at a wide variety of birds, but most appealing were the two Spectacled Owls that posed most obligingly (see profile photo!). Meals had...

This is fantastic place to stay. We stayed in one of the Bird Cobana's, which we accessed via a bridge and a raised wooden walkway. The cobanas had a large decking area where you could relax outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest. Pooks Hill lodge is ideally situated to enjoy trips to the river to canoe...

I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a jungle lodge. The owner Vicky is a fascinating woman full of personality and great stories. Her partner and herself have made a wonderful spot that highlights the beauty of the region. The communal meals add to the experience by bringing all the guests together, it creates a sense of community and...

The owners do a great here to protect the environment and to minimise our impact. The lodges are traditionally built, but very comfortable. There is no AC but rather fans. The common areas are lit by oil lamps, and you will need a torch/flashlight to get around. Water is heated by burning locally available fuel. Food is home-cooked Belizean cuisine,...

Rated excellent but remember this is a fairly basic lodge.Suits us! . Communal dining and the food is good but dinner is a little school dinnerish. The owner/managers are all hands on and with their excellent staff make sure everything works smoothly and you get maximum benefit from your stay . The lodge is very near the ATM cave so...
