I loved everything about this place! The room was comfortable even without a/c. They operate everything as eco-friendly as possible, including providing filtered water as an alternative to multiple plastic bottles and solar powered electricity. They use nuts from the local cahune palm as charcoal...More

Loved our time here! Beautiful getaway in the jungle. Truly a great spot to “unplug and go off the grid.” Owners and guides are cordial and friendly. Meals are made in the kitchen fresh, sooo so good. Can’t recommend this enough!

At Pooks Hill: Ceiling fans, yes. Air conditioning, no. I think you'll come to appreciate that when the howler monkeys go berserk at 3 a.m. (Hey, it is an experience!) and the night birds and other animals are on the move... More
At Pooks Hill: Ceiling fans, yes. Air conditioning, no. I think you'll come to appreciate that when the howler monkeys go berserk at 3 a.m. (Hey, it is an experience!) and the night birds and other animals are on the move. It is an aural experience that would be missed with the racket of AC!
I can't speak to the Pooks Hill weather in July, although last year in Belize it was very hot and humid in general. The natural insulation of the thatch roof and the ceiling fans should provide comfort enough.
Just an aside, in the year we have lived here on Ambergris Caye, we have never used the air conditioning and there have been some exceptionally hot days with still air. Ceiling fans, on the other hand, are never off, it seems.
