What a great place, Vicky is an outstanding host, our bird guide Mike couldn't have been better, he drove us all over Belize, and boy did he know his birds! Three meals were prepared for you each day (if you were there) all very good. The rooms were clean and the hot water was hot. Last, but not least, Kate's... More

We stayed here with friends of Vicky's and had a fantastic time. Vicky and her staff are warm and friendly as well as incredibly knowledgeable, the setting is fab and if you are happy to sit in the darkness once everyone has gone to bed you get a great sense of being right in the jungle. Rooms are simple but... More

Lots to do around; excllent athmosphere with all guests comingling; very good and friendly guides; charming hostess, and lots to see and do. We enjoyed our stay very... More

My wife and I recently spent a few days at Pook's Hill. It was the highlight of our trip! The owner, Vicky, and her staff were extremely welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Speaking of which, the lodge is nestled right in the jungle so the bird watching is out of this world, howler monkeys are... More

This lodge is amazing, we stayed for 3 nights in a bird cabana, the accommodation was clean and comfy and surprisingly free of bugs considering that we were located right in the rainforest. The bumpy road to arrive at the site is more than worth it, you are located in what I would call a peaceful spot, but it is... More

What a great experience! My teenage son & I went to have an adventure and we certainly did. Our welcome was warm and friendly. Owner, Vicky, and her son, Matt made us feel like we were family. From Pook's Hill, we hiked in the rainforest, bird watched, canoed the Macal River, traveled to the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, the Xunantunich... More

We went to Pook's Hill because we thought we could have some "down" time and wander around their 300± acres without going out on "expeditions" every day and we needed the "down" time. That worked out perfectly. This is the best birding place I have ever been! Almost every morning they have an experienced local bird guide to take whoever... More

This beautifully located eco-lodge is about five miles down a gravel track from the western highway (take the signposted turning at Teakettle) and is run by the charming Vicki who owns and manages this small reserve as an ecologial buffer zone between the increasing plantation development outside Belmopan and the Tapir Mountain reserve. We stayed here for four nights as... More

The last 6 miles or so was along a bumpy dirt road track... More
