We stared our Belize trip at Pook's and couldn't have asked for more! George picked us up from Belize airport and drove us about 2 hours to the property. We stayed in the Bird Cabana. It really felt like a grass hut in the jungle but with a bathroom! The local meals served family stile were great. Joining the guests... More

We stayed three nights here as part of a tour arranged by Audley Travel. We were transferred by their local agents, Via Ventures and the driver knew the road well so we were not bumped around too much on the approach road. We were warmly welcomed by Hugo and Mayra, and Ray and were soon shown to our cabana overlooking... More

Pook's Hill is a hidden gem in the heart of the jungle. Off the grid and way off the last paved road, Ray, Myra and Hugo will make sure your stay is comfortable, you see as many birds and other wildlife as you want, you see the region's natural and historic attractions, and you eat and sleep well. I long... More

Stayed here 3 nights in Mar 2014. Don't let the reviews regarding the road deter you ... its really not that bad. The huts are really cute and the instructions are perfect- no hair dryers, charge electronics only between 5 and 9 when the generator is running etc. Hugo and Mayra do an excellent job managing/ hosting/ arranging tours etc....

My husband and I just got back from Belize, and we stayed at Pook's Hill for 4 nights. We loved it! Though the ride in was bumpy, and the beds were hard, we loved everything else about our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was so neat to be able to stay right in the jungle in...

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Pook's Hill and enjoyed every minute of it. Every aspect of our visit was superb. The naturalist ( a Mayan man named Izzy) was incredible and assisted us in identifying nearly 50 species of birds as well as sharing Mayan stories and culture with us. Accommodations were first rate. We had... More

We just got back from Belize (March 4, 2014) and had a wonderful vacation. Pooks Hill Lodge is a great property! It is a very beautiful, peaceful, well managed, and eco-friendly lodge. The staff are all friendly, knowledgeable, and go out of their way to create an enjoyable visit. There are Mayan ruins right outside the door to our Palapa.... More

I was on a tour and was placed in Cabana 9, which was at the top of the hill, furthest away from the lodge. There was not a completed path up the hill to the cabana, so I had to walk very carefully at night in order to find my way up the hill. When we stayed there the food... More

We stayed at Pooks for four days on a birding trip. Every morning would bring wonderful views of trogons, aracari, hawks and hummers in the area surrounding the cabanas and lodge. Midday, we would explore the Pook's trails and see woodpeckers, flycatchers, tanagers, manakins etc. Our cabana was spacious and had a thatched roof with a nice large ceiling fan... More

We just left from a 4 night stay at the lodge and already miss it. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel like family and set us at ease. It is so refreshing to stay at a place like this and be away from the tacky resorts that line the coast. As some have said " the... More
