I spent 6 nights at The Lighthouse while in Utila for diving. I can't recommend staying here enough!! Rooms are very clean (and cleaned daily) with great views, great location, hot water, A/C, and hammocks. Can't ask for much more. The location was perfect for me because it's just a few feet from Alton's Dive Center on one side, and...

Four of us spent 2 nights at the Lighthouse in Utila. Great rooms and perfect location. Our rooms were corner rooms facing the bay. The place is immaculate with 2 beds and a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and New a/c. Very cooling and quiet. So you can use the AC or open the windows and get a breeze (okay in...

We spent three amazing nights at The Lighthouse. We loved how clean and quiet it was. Mrs Thelma is such an incredible person she helped me to plan a surprise for my boyfriend´s birthday. Please make sure to admire the sunset and sunrise at least once while there.

This place is the definition of clean, and has hands down best location on the island. With it being on the water it provides lagoon and bay vantage points. It is still in town so it is close to eateries and bars. Thelma runs the place and she is one in a million, you can tell she genuinely cares for...

We stayed here with another couple for a week while we got our advanced cert. By far the cleanest room we've ever stayed in. Friendly owners/staff.... and what a magnificent view! We were in no way bothered by the orientation speech or the strict rules. It was actually quite charming. The owners take great pride in the place and want...

I had been to the fancy hotels in neighboring Roatan, but this being my first trip to Utila I decided to stay here. Certainly, I chose well. This is a little slice of heaven. From the time you arrive and are greeted by your surrogate mother, to when you check out, your experience is amazing. We stayed in a bay...

Clean, new, well kept, A/C, TV, close to everything you need and most of what you want. And all at a reasonable price! Thelma will take care of you! She admits herself that she is a control freak but after she sets the rules, she stays out of your way and stay. And since she is, the place stays like...

We were extremely pleased with our stay here at The Lighthouse. I will not consider staying anywhere else when we return. We enjoyed every night that we were there. My favorite part of the day was late evening. The wrap around porch gave me access to sunrises,sunsets and a nightly glowing moon over the water.
