My stay at the Lighthouse was fantastic! It's the simple things that made it so enjoyable. 1) First and foremost, the place always had electricity and running hot water. Other travelers on the island stayed in hotels (like Lazy Daze) that had power outages for 1-2 days at a time and had only sporadic running water. The Lighthouse's back-up generator... More

My wife and I were originally booked at another place, but after 1 night there, we luckily were able to find a room at the Lighthouse. The place is very bright, airy, and clean. It is also very safe and quiet. Utila is a noisy place, filled with tuk tuk moto taxis and partying backpackers and this hotel is at... More

Where do you begin? I was given a ride from Utila Cays to the Lighthouse by water taxi. When I arrived I was met by other people staying there who helped me unload my suitcase which was very nice. I then was met by Thelma and O'Neil, the owners. Thelma gave me directions to my room and told me to... More

I fully recommend its location, neatness and ambiance. Thelma, O'Neall and their son are very nice and helpful. The best place to stay in the island. You can have breakfast at Camilas. Look for Treetanic, very unique bar and restaurant place decorated Gaudi's style, the restaurant inside the place where Trankila's bar is (japanese).

Just came back from a 13 days diving trip in Roatan and Utila. Stayed at lighthouse hotel for 4 days. I have to agree with other reviews that this hotel is the best hotel in Utila. Great location that close to ferry and Lady Judy's dock.Best restaurant R&J and best dive shop Alton are right next door. Extremely clean and... More

Really nice rooms, clean and comfortable. the best costumer service. It's close to the dock, and also you have a very nice view of the sea. The owner, Thelma is a lovely person who's gonna help you in anything you need.

This place is a winner for me due to the fact they have hot hot water and decent toilets...all of this for a great price. Having travelled through Central America in hostels this has been a worthwhile upgrade. Beautiful view across the bay, decent rooms, top amenities...i am writing this review from my hammock!!

We stayed in the Lighthouse for 4 nights at the end of a trip around Central America. Arriving at the gates and walking up the path, we knew we had chosen the best place on the island. Thelma was very welcoming and gave us the low-down on Utila, only positives - what to do, where to go and we found... More

I have lived on Roatan for nine years and my duties take me to Utila several times a year. Since finding the Lighthouse several years ago, I ALWAYS stay there. It's quiet and comfortable. There is no one on earth more hospitable than O'Neil and Thelma. The view is amazing, especially the sunsets. Nothing else on Utila compares.
