Small property with very nice pools and a quaint little restaurant that has a wood fired pizza oven. Tuesdays nights are 2 for 1 Pizza and the place is rockin. Dorms are free for the ones who take a diving course with UTILA DIVE CENTRE and if you upgrade to a private room with A/C, its discounted greatly as well on your course days too. A short Tuc Tuc ride that costs only 20 Lampira one way or a ten minute walk to the dive centre. Free ride too and from the Utila Dream ferry terminal if you arrange for it prior. Great guest services and the area close by offer diners, bakeries and shopping.
My partner and I stayed in a private dorm for 3 weeks in January while taking diving courses with Utila Dive Centre and really enjoyed our stay. The service from the front desk and cleaning staff were always friendly. The room was simple and cleaned daily! With the fan (no AC) was plenty cool that time of year especially at night. Pool was nice and has lots of outdoor seating and picnic table. The bathrooms could use some renovations (pretty run down in showers but it didn't effect our stay much). Towels are available for a $10 deposit each that you get back upon check-out and can be exchanged for clean ones any time during the stay. We were overall impressed with this place, especially for the price!
Hotel grounds are gorgeous with lush vegetation but dorm’s bathrooms really need repairs and it looks like they’re cleaned only once a day, which is not very convenient when the hotel is full. In-hotel restaurant doesn’t accept credit cards...
I have to say this is one of the best places we stayed at during our trip. We chose Mango's because we were offered a discounted stay because of our dives with UDC. And definitely did not regret it. They pick you up at the ferry and there's also a morning shuttle to UDC. The room was really very nice, spacious and good aircon. The pool was wonderful and good wifi. The only thing we didn't like as much was the breakfast at Mango's restaurant. It was overpriced. The pizzas there are really good, though. So just have breakfast elsewhere (for instance, at UDC) and you're fine!
Mango Inn is one of the better hotels on Utila and the restaurant has a great wood fired pizza oven pizza with a twofer Tuesday special. Utila is known as a backpacker’s island so many hotels offer lesser standards. Mango Inn is associated with Utila Dive Center and discount the cost of their rooms on days you dive.
