From the moment we arrived, I didn't want to leave. Our western-facing room overlooked the water and had the most amazing sunsets. The provided hammock was my blissful oasis, and I would have stayed there all day if I didn't have exploring to do! The Lighthouse is perfectly situated at the end of the road, right before the bridge, and... More

We were very happy with our accommodations at the lighthouse. We were visiting for diving, and we were near our dive place. We felt safe and felt that it was a wonderful environment. There were places to hang out wet dive gear, hammocks for each room, good wifi, and just in general a great deck. The room was also nice,... More

I was traveling to Utila with a friend and wouldn't have normally booked this because I'm a very low-budget traveler, so I never would have experienced The Lighthouse if not for someone else. Having stayed in low budget accommodations on Utila and staying with The Lighthouse, there is absolutely no comparison. Not only do you have an amazing breeze, respectful... More

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Lighthouse for a few days in March. What a beautiful place. I don't think I have ever stayed any where that was so clean. Thelma and O'Neill are wonderful hosts and gave us many suggestions to fill our days. The hotel is close to many good restaurants and... More

My son and I just returned from a 12 night stay at the Lighthouse. Everything about the place was awesome. Thelma was very nice and helpful. She is a wealth of knowledge and has many great tips for your visit. She'll let you know where to eat and just as important where not to eat. What to do and where... More

My wife and I always try to get to Utila when we travel to Honduras and we love to stay at this beautiful hotel. It is immaculate by any standards and it is always a treat to meet with the owners, Thelma and O'Neal. They are both a fountain of knowledge about Utila and can assist you in a hundred... More

Just got back from the island a few days ago. We stayed at the Lighthouse for a few days Thelma and her husband are the owners of this hotel. I can say for a fact that the room and grounds were spotless. I would even go as far as to say you could eat off the floor that is how... More

The property is impeccable. It's far down the road from town is all.... So you'll be walkin' or taxi'in. T and O are interested and interesting. Great views and a calm, relaxing spot. ####<<<<<<< Boats running thru the lagoon can be loud too.

Firstly the two owners of this property, Thelma and O'Neil, are just fantastic! Full of knowledge about the area, places to eat, see and swim! The rooms are all set out different, all wonderfully presented and extremely clean. Nice wonderful hot showers. Right over the beach so each room has a wonderful view. We got a room overlooking the ocean... More
