My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days in August. I can not say enough about Thelma the women who runs this hotel. She gives you a little speech when you first arrive. I didn't mind, because she covered just about every question you have or will have. That way you are free to enjoy the rest of your...

Stayed there for a week in July. Thelma gives you a quick talk about the island right after you check in. The place was quiet, relaxing, very clean and the views over the water were great. We would awake each morning, brew some coffee and watch the water for stingrays and the sky for birds.She even arranged for our tuk...

In May, my girlfriend and I spent two weeks in Honduras. Our first stop was in Utila and after much research we decided to stay at the Lighthouse Hotel. To be honest, after reading review after review praising the hotel, we were a little suspicious. But our expectations were exceeded. The place is simply wonderful, a bit away from the...

We planned to stay three nights and stayed seven!! We loved it here, if you are looking for somewhere to relax, take in the ocean and have some quiet time on a hammock then this is the place for you. Waking up to the view of the ocean every morning and seeing fish swim beneath you never became tiresome. The...

We didn't see any other place that would have measured up to our experience at the Lighthouse. It's owners have created a spaced that fits in perfectly with the whole Utila scene. Tips, advice, directions and personal attention from Thelma make it more than just a place to crash. Location is ideal, rooms are clean, reasonably priced, and you get...

There's nothing bad to say about this place. Nice views, clean, and the hosts were really sweet people. Thelma gave us lots of tips on where we could get nice vegetarian meals. Just a really, really nice place.

Lighthouse is perfect, first of all we are staying here during Semana Santa and the island is jumping, but we are sleeping like babies every night and enjoying quiet moments on the balcony overlooking the Caribbean, yet we are still in town so if we wanted to get ourselves into trouble we could. At the Lighthouse you get impeccable service...

The Lighthouse was our home away from home while staying in the town of Utila. Our hosts, Thelma and O'Neill, are fascinating people and cared for us like family. Their gated property is peaceful, immaculate and the rooms are sparkling clean. The sunset views from the balcony are a beautiful end to the day and rom the balcony you can...

My friend and I stayed at The Lighthouse for a week in March 2013. We were delighted with the place. The beds were like new. The bathroom was first world immaculate. The deck around the place which becomes part of your living space was lovely and afforded beautiful sunset views (we were on the top floor, NW corner). Check this...
