“Nice & Clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

Nice place, private bathroom, big rooms, owner is very nice and just a good guy. Only problem is the A/C in the room didn't work even though they advertise A/C in all rooms. The maid is very nice and attentive. She cleans the rooms spotless and even folds and organizes all your stuff.

I loved it at Rubi's. The owners are very friendly and helpful, the location is excellent, the rooms are large and comfortable. Hot water, fridge, free wi-fi (although it does go down every so often). It's right on the water and there's a dock so you can just jump off into the clear-blue sea. Laundry service was fast. The rooms are cleaned every day and your stuff tidied up to a degree I have never experienced anywhere else (who's going to re-stack my books and re-coil my cables now!?). There's a common area kitchen (basic) and there was a great community feeling among the other travellers there, sort and long term. We came for a few days and ended up staying nearly 3 weeks. Definitely one of our favourite places we've stayed on the 5 month trip so far.

Really enjoyed our stay in Rubi's Inn, the place is on the spot water-front, really great view and breeze (see pictures).

Centrally located but not noisy and with laid-backed travelers (not party animals,etc..).

Great and clean rooms, great service and if you are lucky you'll get the corner room and you will be literally able to jump into the water from your room on the second floor.


Laundry service was also really good, quick and clean stuff.

Highly recommended

Room Tip: Try to get the corner room on the second floor (#12), amazing view, private balcony (a bit more expe...

We stayed for a week at Rubi's and loved it. The owner is very nice and the rooms are very comfy (hot water, AC, wifi, fridge...) and are cleaned daily. The hotel has a nice garden with its own dock, and is located just where you want to be: amongst all the dive shops. Definitely would recommend it, best value for money in Utila.

The owner Tony, is a really friendly guy who will do what he can, to make you feel at home.

The place has a great centrally location and is nice and peaceful at the same time. The little private beach is very cute and relaxing - notice that it isn't sand but coral beach. There is a dock though, so you easily can go swimming anyways, or snorkeling right from shore.

The nice and big rooms are fresh and airy. I have never experienced a more thorough cleaning lady than here! Not only will she clean your room spotlessly, she will also fold your clothes and organise your mess (if you have one). Make sure to leave her a good tip.

I can only say, that this is a real bargain!

We stayed for a week whilst we dived Utila. This hotel is perfect as a base when you are diving. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and the hot showers are great. There is no air con but they have fans located right above the bed. They also have a small kitchen if you want to prepare your own food (we ate out). Only issue was the wi-fi was in and out but this is problem on the whole island. Highly recommended

Our stay at Rubi´s was amazing. Tony, the owner is a really nice guy, and always willing to help. The hotel is clean, and comfortable. The rooms are nice and tidy, and are cleaned every day. The beds are comfortable, and the hotel gets a really nice breeze at night. It´s in a great location, and the dock is a great place to swim. Amazing sunset views from there as well.
