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

We stayed here while diving with Altons dive shop. Thelma and Oneill are fabulous. I had gotten an island virus after my 3 day of diving and Thelmas concern for how I felt couldn't have been better. Very clean hotel. We stayed on the corner room , second floor overlooking the water. It was fabulous. I will definitely be returning... More

Thelma and O'neill are running this hotel on one end of the main road, away from the noise of traffic. They make an effort so that everything is perfect. The beds are comfortable and new, the toilet and shower are reasonably big, and everything is spotless. They have a no-noise policy at night so you get your rest for sure!... More

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
