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.

We definetely recommend staying at the lighthouse. There're nice places to stay at in Utila but the Lighthhouse is the best in our opinion. Nice owners, clean, safe, nice breeze throughout the day, a/c, tv, wifi and spectacular views are some of the thing you can expect.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days, and did not want to leave. The location, the staff, and the room itself were hands down, some of the best I have come across in Central America. The price was very reasonable, and the family owners take a great amount of pride in everything they do. Our room was on... More

Decided to stay at the Lighthouse based on reviews and was not disappointed. Thelma was responsive and detailed in her correspondence prior to our arrival and was great about letting us know what we should expect (taxi costs, travel time, etc). A quick orientation upon our arrival at the hotel helped us feel more at home on our first trip... More

We had a wonderful time at the Lighthouse Hotel on Utila. Thelma and her son did everything to make our time relaxing and comfortable. They have an amazing place, beautiful and clean, just what we were looking for. We had a great time relaxing, I really enjoyed the hammock! But we did find a couple great snorkel places. And we...

I cannot say enough good things about The Lighthouse and the owners Thelma and O'Neill! Perfect, quiet location. Clean, tidy and air conditioned rooms within a short walking distance to everything else in Utila. If you go to Utila, STAY HERE, you will NOT regret it!

I just go back from Utila yesterday and had to rave about The Lighthouse and Thelma. We have dubbed her our Island Mama since she takes care of you the moment you step through the well kept gates of The Lighthouse. Everything is spotless, quiet and serene. Thelma and her husband, O'Neill keep a beautiful property in Utila with great... More

We stayed at the Lighthouse for 3 nights at the beginning of our stay as the house we were renting was booked until Saturday but I am so glad the opportunity to meet this amazing woman and stay at the Lighthouse! I can't say anything that hasn't been said before. It was just the perfect introduction to Utila with gorgeous... More
