This place is the definition of clean, and has hands down best location on the island. With it being on the water it provides lagoon and bay vantage points. It is still in town so it is close to eateries and bars. Thelma runs the place and she is one in a million, you can tell she genuinely cares for... More

We stayed here with another couple for a week while we got our advanced cert. By far the cleanest room we've ever stayed in. Friendly owners/staff.... and what a magnificent view! We were in no way bothered by the orientation speech or the strict rules. It was actually quite charming. The owners take great pride in the place and want... More

I had been to the fancy hotels in neighboring Roatan, but this being my first trip to Utila I decided to stay here. Certainly, I chose well. This is a little slice of heaven. From the time you arrive and are greeted by your surrogate mother, to when you check out, your experience is amazing. We stayed in a bay... More

Clean, new, well kept, A/C, TV, close to everything you need and most of what you want. And all at a reasonable price! Thelma will take care of you! She admits herself that she is a control freak but after she sets the rules, she stays out of your way and stay. And since she is, the place stays like... More

We were extremely pleased with our stay here at The Lighthouse. I will not consider staying anywhere else when we return. We enjoyed every night that we were there. My favorite part of the day was late evening. The wrap around porch gave me access to sunrises,sunsets and a nightly glowing moon over the water.

We had a lovely stay at the Lighthouse Hotel. It was our first trip to Utila, we had to be there for business and my husband found the Lighthouse Hotel. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back to stay with them next time we go to Utila. The property is lovely, with a large gated entry... More

The Lighthouse stands out in Utila, it is right on the water, on the main street but away from the noise and activity of the center of town, still, within a ten minute walk you are right on the very center of Utila. The hotel is well run by its owners, with rigid rules spilled out upon arrival in what... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 2 days and it was the best experience we ever had. Telma, the owner sat down with us for 10 minutes and told us everything about the Island. On the third day It was time to go to mainland but the ferry was not running. The owners let us stay for free the... More

We were supposed to stay next door, but our original destination double booked. They made a mistake, because of the booking and because The Lighthouse was much nicer. (Check out a map.) Our first night was spent out over the water in the building you can see in the photo above. It was clean and well maintained. Everything seemed white... More
