As a family we went to this lodge for our first warm water dive trip. All of the staff especially Willie and Captain Albert were fantastic. The rooms were great right on the water. The staff was very attentive.

I booked Utila Lodge for our Spring Break trip. We used Roatan Charters to make all the arrangements. This was not my first trip to the Lodge, but for 14 in our group it as a fantastic week. The staff at the Lodge were great. Our group was so large that we had two divemasters on the boat. We were... More

This was our fourth visit to Utila Lodge, and there will definitely be a fifth in our future. This is not a 5-star luxury dive resort, but it IS a clean, comfortable, friendly lodge for divers and snorkelers. You will not ever need to wear even flip-flops while you're on the property. Rooms are big enough for ALL your gear-... More

Overall, the stay was comfortable enough and the dives were spectacular. I'll break down my stay in pros and cons as follows: Pros: 1) Lovely staff - They all were friendly and extremely... More
