Pook's is a very special place and we really missed the peace and tranquillity when we left. The accommodation is great as is the food. The staff are friendly and do everything to make your stay perfect.
Thank Sue V

Thank you for staying with us. We strive to live in unison with nature and in turn receive a tranquil and peaceful environment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for this review.
Our group of two families (and five kids aged 10-14) stayed at Pook's Hill Lodge for for the last four nights of 2017, culminating with moongazing through a telescope, complimentary champagne and a piñata for the kids on New Year's Eve.
We thoroughly enjoyed everything...More
Wonderfully considered accommodations set around the ruins of a Mayan family's residence. Lots of history, which the knowledgeable staff are only too happy to tell you about.

During lunch at a roadside cafe an American retired to Belize told us that there is a place with great hummingbird feeders. Since it was on our way (kind of, it turned out) we took the detour. Getting there from the highway in Teakettle took...More

I can't speak to the Pooks Hill weather in July, although last year in Belize it was very hot and humid in general. The natural insulation of the thatch roof and the ceiling fans should provide comfort enough.
Just an aside, in the year we have lived here on Ambergris Caye, we have never used the air conditioning and there have been some exceptionally hot days with still air. Ceiling fans, on the other hand, are never off, it seems.
