“Charming Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2005

My girlfriend and I loved this charming and rustic lodge situated on the border of the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. The lodge, while simple, had an attention to detail that was very impressive. The proprietors, Vicky and Ray have obviously taken great pride in building a place that works with the surrounding forest, instead of against it. The cabanas were clean and comfortable, and could easily have won a design award, or appear in some style magazine. The pristine grounds are surrounded by dense sub-tropical forest, which has marked paths to a nearby river and swim hole. We were greeted in the morning by the calls of monkeys, and spectacular birds flying above us were the norm. The food was exceptional, and was the best we had Belize.

Pook's Hill is truly a world gem, and worth a trip to Belize in its own right.
