“Friendly and accommodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Stayed here for 2 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period and it was brilliant. Kevin is a very welcoming manager, always looking to help out where he could, and the accommodation was brilliant value for money, especially given the price.

The dive shop staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly (I have to give special kudos to Pierre and Coco) as well.

Overall I can't recommend the Pirate's Bay enough.

Clean rooms, great service, friendly staff and good food. Just get in early as it is popular!
Apparently this review has to be at least 200 characters so sorry for wasting your time with additional rant...

I stayed there more than a week for diving with Captain Morgan Dive shop (same owner, so a perfect combination). It was very affordable, great located and felt very safe. The rooms were very clean and are cleaned on a daily basis. Is located directly at a little beach where you can swim too. The outdoor sitting area, bar and hammocks are perfect to chill. My only complaint was the kind of mattress in the dormitory (private rooms are better ones) making a quite uncomfortable sleep. However for the atmosphere, price and cleanliness I can highly recommend this place. Note: In comparison to other dive shops I've seen on the Island, I can also highly recommend the dive shop. So, "Muchas Gracias" to Kevin/Emilia and all staff surrounded incl. dive shop ;) Tilman

On a backpacking trip through Central America, I decided to get PADI certified. Most of the places on Utila island, Honduras, offer free accommodations if you purchase a dive package, but Pirate's Bay (associated with Captain Morgan's dive shop) is amazing! The place is practically brand new at the time of writing this (1st floor opened Jan 2012, second floor opened June 2012) so the place is quite immaculate! The dorm rooms are included in the price of your dive class, but you can also get private rooms for $25 USD a night. The private rooms have a double bed and one single, so some fellow travelers and I just split the cost of the private room. Another friend is in the dorms, and the rooms are equally nice. Either way, you can't go wrong. The beds are super comfortable and the water is "hot" (hot is a relative term in most of Central America so don't expect piping hot showers anywhere, but the showers at Pirate's Bay are definitely on the hotter side). Huge bonus. It has a cute little bar with some food on the premises and is one of the few places on Utila that has a sandy beachfront.

The dive shop is located about 2-3 minutes' walk down the main drag. All of the staff are awesome. They are friendly, informative and helpful. My dive instructor is great, but from what I can see, so are all the other members of the dive staff! The owner is hospitable and it's obvious that he really cares about his place and his guests.

I would recommend Pirate's Bay and Captain Morgan's to anyone!

We stayed here on a weekend trip to Utila. It was very affordable, and felt very safe. The rooms were very cleaned, and are cleaned on a daily basis. The outdoor sitting area, and hammocks are perfect to play cards or take a nap. Our only complaint was the beds, the slats that held the mattress on kept falling out of all of the beds in our room making a quite uncomfortable sleep. However for the price, and cleanliness I would stay here again.
