We had a wonderful 2 night visit here in this thoughtfully managed Eco resort.We were met in Dangriga by the owners chatty and personable son Matt who drove us to Pooks Hill along the Western "Hummingbird " Highway which allowed us to see some of Central Belize. The last 6 miles or so was along a bumpy dirt road track... More

Stayed at Pook's Hill Lodge for 3 nights and loved every minute of it! Vicki is the ultimate host and was able to accommodate every request with a smile. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food was very good and served buffet style - they keep replenishing so you definitely won't go hungry. We met a lot of... More

The journey to the hotel is quite something - while the location says Belmopan, it's actually a fair distance off road from there. But this just adds to the lovely feeling of seclusion from the outside world. The hotel is beautifully appointed and has great amenities despite its location. In the main building, you can find maps of the various... More

Pook's was beautiful! We stayed in one of the birdhouses, and had a beautiful room, great nights sleep, and plenty of privacy. The owner and staff are amazing and friendly, and are more than helpful. Hook up with Mario for Bird watching even if you aren't that into birds, he knows them all and it was very interesting. Meals and... More

Pook's HIll made our trip to Belize amazing. It's about a two hour drive from the airport, but you're definitely getting the full Belize jungle experience. The lodge is located in the foothills of the Tapir Mountains and about five miles from the main road. During our four day stay we saw so many different kinds of birds, toucans, hummingbirds,...

Really enjoyed our 4 days at Pook's Hill. Vicki is a wonderful host, the grounds and huts were lovely, the food was great. Really felt like you were away from it all. Loved the communal breakfasts/dinners as you got to know your fellow travellers....and loved the honour system for the bar! It's a bit of a rough road coming in... More

After a long day visiting ruins and travelling down from Corozal arriving at Pooks Hill was wonderful. Such a warm friendly welcome and an amazing spot we thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay here. The huts are really well designed and very comfortable too. Great atmosphere at the bar and amazing food too. The guided jungle walks are a must!

Spent 4 nights at Pook’s Hill Lodge. It’s a special place. Reminded me of being at summer camp as a kid – but that certainly wasn’t in a jungle. Out of the city, in the quiet of nature, only the sounds of nature. And there were no electric lights at summer camp, so it was all lamps, like the Pook’s... More

I stayed here in 2011 and was in awe the whole time. The huts are unique as is the main building where you eat and upstairs where you relax in the evening. Pooks Hills is in a good location, centralized to all the stuff my group went to see. The cave with the skeletons was about a hour minute walk.... More

This was my third stay at Pook's Hill, and I'm sure it won't be my last. It's still unique and wonderful after all these years, and still feels like coming to visit with friends. Here you are treated as family, not as a client or tip-dispenser. Want a beer or coke? Get it yourself from the bar, day or night.... More
