Hanging out over the water, an easy walk to downtown, wonderfully friendly and efficient owner/staff - this was just what we needed. It had a small kitchenette and bathroom, comfortable bed and lovely vista of the town's bay area. Rustic (not for everyone) but clean, and it filled the bill for us while we waited for the availability of our beach house booked for several weeks. Very reasonable prices for the convenience and lovely location. Remember - this is Utila where there isn't much luxury.

Very nice, bright room in this remarkable wooden construction on a pier over the sea, with big wooden decks. Air conditioning, fan, private bathroom, hot water, everything worked perfectly and was wonderfully maintained by the resident owners. No meals available at the hotel, but plenty of eating places within a few minutes walk. Peaceful location, with good beach and snorkelling nearby. Overall, a wonderful place, and I would love to stay there again!

The Lighthouse is a very peaceful place to stay on the edge of downtown, which can be quite noisy. The rooms are great - spacious, very clean and well-equipped. the owners can help with any questions you might have. It is fun to look down and see needlefish or rays in the clear water. There is no beach right here, but many are nearby.

This is our second time staying at the Lighthouse and again not disappointed. We have stayed at several places in Utila and the Lighthouse is still one of our favorite places to stay. Hotel is above the water and has great views of the bay. Just on the edge of town makes it quite but only a few minutes walk to restaurants and stores.

We stayed there one night before we checked in to our Airbnb. I called pretty late and the gentleman was very accommodating. He was already waiting for us at the gate when our tuk-tuk pulled up. He put us in a really cool room right on the water and brought us fresh towels. The room itself was perfect and came with everything you would need for any length of stay(fridge,microwave,etc..). And the AC was heaven...also, waking up to a great view was a plus. It’s a great location too...near all the amazing food the island has to offer. :))
