This hotel was by far the nicest in all of Utila. For an extremely reasonable rate, you can stay at this hotel with a great view, a wonderful breeze, beautiful sunsets and a room where you could eat off the floor. Bonus for me was the super fast wifi - great for a bit of work from the balcony. I... More

WOW was our experience at this place. When we went looking for a place to stay after our first hotel in the island didn't turn out to be good, the lighthouse was still closed after having been recently renovated. So we were alone at this hotel and could get the room with the best views. The place is tranquil almost... More

When you're on vacation, things might not always work as planned: for instance having your ferry cancelled due to weather. That's when someone like O'niell brings magic to life: he kept us updated on everything from weather to port status, he made sure we were comfortable in our rooms all day and finally made arrangements for us to fly out...

This place truly has it all, good prices, reliable power, internet, air conditioning, security, amazing views and friendly/helpful owners. You're steps away from Alton's Dive Shop and several restaurants. We found it a little nicer to be a 5 minute walk away from some of the louder parts of the island, so that when it is time to go home,... More

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
