Rated excellent but remember this is a fairly basic lodge.Suits us! . Communal dining and the food is good but dinner is a little school dinnerish. The owner/managers are all hands on and with their excellent staff make sure everything works smoothly and you get maximum benefit from your stay . The lodge is very near the ATM cave so...

The BELIZE Adventure Needing to recharge our batteries and wanting to go someplace different, Nancy and I took a nine day trip to Belize. Originally I planned to just use a backpack and stay in hostels; but then I realized that we are 65 and not 25, so we stayed in cabanas and hotels. However, we did use backpacks and...

Immense. We were so lucky to have the place to ourselves but could not have asked for a better venue. If you want a truly rustic experience with the wildlife & location as the focus of your trip, this is the place! The staff were excellent, welcoming and helpful, especially our daily guide Mike. You could not get a better...

Our travel agency, Adventure Life, booked our stay at Pook's Hill and we enjoyed it immensely. It's quite unique with its secluded location and incredible jungle surroundings. We saw monkeys swinging from trees from the "hotel lobby". The setting is also quite intimate with family style eating and an incredibly friendly staff that will make you feel at home. From...

Pook's Hill was recommended from our tour operator Adventures Life. The property and accommodations did not disappoint. The location is perfect if you plan on visiting the ATM cave as it allows you to get there early and enjoy the park and cave before the crowds arrive. The staff was very friendly and we got to know many of them...

My husband and I were thoroughly enchanted with our experience at Pook's Hill. The staff were friendly and helpful and the cabanas were a bit primitive but comfortable. And oh so cute! The lodge runs entirely on solar power so full electricity is limited to a couple of hours each morning and evening. The cabanas are equipped with battery powered...

Our family of 6 had a fantastic experience... we wouldn't have changed a thing. The location is remote, but gorgeous. We loved our cabanas and all the sights and sounds of the jungle. We spent many hours relaxing and playing games in the central lodge. We enjoyed exploring the onsite Mayan ruins and searching for tarantulas in the evening. The...

My partner and I recently spent 4 nights at Pook's Hill Lodge. The staff was extremely friendly and greeted us as we arrived. It was off-season so we almost had the place to ourselves. At first, it seemed the lodge was out of the way, but once we started doing some of the various jungle activities (zip lining, cave tubing,...
