Thelma runs a really tight ship at The Lighthouse. This little boutique hotel is amazingly quiet, extraordinarily clean and has the best views available of Utila harbor. The prices are quite reasonable, the staff is very honest and the whole vibe is one of a secure, laid back cocoon in the Caribbean. No wonder so many of the guests we... More

We wanted to go splurgey (by Honduran standards) but not too splurgey during our recent visit to Utila with my daughter and her spouse, so we each booked bay-facing rooms for four nights at the Lighthouse for $68 a night. I didn't regret a penny of it. The hotel isn't just on the water, it's over the water, built on... More

Lovely, small hotel directly above the Bay. We always had a East wind blowing to cool us even in the heat of the day. You felt totally safe and secure at this establishment. Thelma was a wonderful host and gave us honest, down to earth information about getting around on the Island and what to expect. It's the prettiest hotel,... More

The light house is in a great location right near the dock where the ferry lands.The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Thelma was very nice and had lots of information about the island would stay there again in a heartbeat!!

I did quite a bit of research before going to Utila, and I am glad to have found the Lighthouse. My research pales in comparison to "Utila 101" or Miss Thelma's basic instructions on Utila survival.If you require a clean,comfortable room, secure surroundings at a very reasonable price, this place is for you.It's an easy walk to anywhere in town,...

Not a lot we can add to the glowing reviews that this place consistently receives. The location IS exceptional. The rooms ARE spotless. The prices ARE a great deal. Thelma and O'Neill ARE extremely helpful and full of valuable information about the island. The only thing I have to suggest is ; if you are the type to party hard... More

What a value for US $53/night! My experience staying at the Lighthouse was nothing less than wonderful. The property was built by the proprietors (who have long family roots in Utila).Their attention to detail in all aspects is impressive. Rooms are spotless, comfortable, and a perfect island experience with sliding patio doors and ceiling fans. AC is available, as are... More

I had the fortunate opportunity to stay at the Lighthouse Hotel on Utila Island, Honduras on January 19-26, 2014 with four other friends. Thelma, the owner, and her team made our stay very enjoyable. We had bay view rooms on the second floor and had THE BEST views on the entire island. From our balcony, we watched rays, sharks, and... More

We stayed here for two nights, the owners are very helpful and really take care of their business and customers. The rooms are extremely clean, it is a safe hotel and the views are just stunning. From seeing options around utila this is by far the best Choice.

I cannot say enough about Thelma the proprietor. She is a peach. Warm and kind. The rooms are extremely clean, comfortable, and bright. The staff is friendly and reliable. We spent 10 days here in January 2014. Rainy weather was not a problem because our accommodations were so comfortable. Back to Thelma...I highly recommend that you listen to her arrival... More
