It has taken me months to submit this report because part of me wants to say something good about this place. I don't mind rugged experiences but I just feel I have to write something because I this was an overall unpleasant experience. We were shorted dives, and we weren't treated well enough overall. I have been to Utila previously... More

My husband and I just visited this resort with a dive group. We had the whole resort. The staff are great- rooms were kept cleaned and the cook Anna was great. The only problem is that we kept asking for fresh fish and native Honduran food since all we kept being served the first few nights was chicken and more... More

Arguably, Deep Blue has the best location of any of the other "all inclusive type" dive resorts in Utila. Besides the three dives per day package they offer, there is a great little reef right in front of the main building for unlimited shore diving. The rooms are spacous, the grounds well kept and equipment is high quality and in... More

Returned from Deep Blue after a seven day stay. What a wonderful place to dive, snorkel, and make new friends. The rooms are big, spacious, and very clean. I am not a diver but loved the shore snorkeling. You can also go out on the boat with the divers and snorkel. Shirley was the best. All of our needs we're... More

This place is primitive so if your looking for a 5 star resort then don't stay here. That being said we enjoyed our stay all of the staff were friendly and we loved Shirley. If your looking for an adventure then this is the place for you. The diving was great Steve was our dive master he was very knowledgeable... More

We just returned from 10 days of wonderful diving in Utila from Deep Blue Resort, a lovely 10-unit resort dedicated to diving and whale shark research. The rooms are spacious and clean, with gorgeous ocean views. The location is isolated although only a short boat ride to town. Because the resort caters to scuba divers, mealtimes revolve around the boat... More

Unless you are only going to dive, eat on time at the designated table, and sleep I'd recommend against this place. Shirley's poor temper casts a gloomy atmosphere over the whole operation. Lights are out in the main building (only wi-fi area) right after dinner. No fun, no camaraderie with fellow divers. The room had 1 very small, filthy A/C,... More

Beach location on the island of Utila. Shirley offers fine hospitality and homestyle accommodations. Dive staff helpful. Could be more variety in the menu and general maintenance of property isn't the best. Dive operation somewhat chaotic with stops for diesel and tank refills between dives. Captain Ivor very good at finding offshore seamounts and whale sharks for limited interaction. Insect... More

I would like to give it 3 1/2 stars. This was a nice resort with good diving, and a great dive crew. The resort was located far out of the main town so it was nice and quiet. We had to take the boat to town, which was fine with our group. The rooms were very nice and spacious. The... More
