At first when you look for a place to dive in Utila you look for reviews on the internet. There are always good and bad reviews, but this is like in any place that is being reviewed. The second thing you would probably do is walk around the extremly HOT island, go into several dive shops for prices and than... More

Hopefully the divermaster team was quite nice which made the experience ok but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone The personal is kinda rude, then they wont tell you that the 'Hotel' is subjected to gouvernment taxes (which I understand but I would rather know it before, they do have a small sign covered by books that they will...

We are very sorry about your negative experience at our hostel. We never hide the fact that we pay Honduran government regulated taxes for both diving and hotel activities. It is part of the paperwork that all of our customers complete prior to participating in any of these activities. On your first visit you did sign our ‘terms and conditions... More

After a whole year of relating with Parrots Dive Center, they've become my beautiful Utilian Family! They always welcome me whenever I reach the island and they always have open doors :) Now, I'm glad I am almost done with my diving courses :) I made OW with funny Johan and my AOW, EFR and Rescue with marvelous Caitlin :)...

Every time I think of diving in Utila I think of Parrots Dive Center, it is my Utilian family, and a beautiful local community of hard working fun and knowledgable divers. Love the personalized attention and the great relationship they create with their divers and students... they make everyone feel at home! I wouldn´t dive in Utila with anybody else... More

Did my open water diving course with Parrots and it was amazing. The staff is so welcoming and amazing instructors (specially if you are kind of scared of diving!!!). Highly recommend it for beginners and those advanced divers as well. They will show you the best dive spots and make sure you have an AMAZING time. Parrot family forever <3

I stayed here for a night before moving to a better hotel. They nickel and dime in accommodations. I had 3 fans in my room, none worked and one was chalk full of dirt. The floor was dirty, the bedsheet had blood and rips, the (cold) shower was delivered via simple water pipe. The shower didn't drain properly, and I... More

We are very sorry about your experience at our hotel. As the owner, I personally dealt with you and I am truly sorry that I couldn't read your needs or expectations. We are used to dealing with young backpackers (looking for $3 a night rooms), if I had known that you had a bigger budget, I would definitely have recommended... More

We had a great time completing our Open Water Dive Course at Parrots this week, from the moment we were picked up from the ferry dock we have felt like a part of their family. The dive center office has a great atmosphere too. Our instructor was Abbey and she was an absolute delight to spend the week with, incredibly... More
