Overview

Close to the night life yet beautifully situated for a chilled atmosphere, and just a short walk away from town centre. Staying in Pirate's Bay Inn gives you the chance to explore Utila and everything this friendly island has to offer, from the restaurants to the beaches and maybe even to search for Captain Morgan's legendary treasure.

Thanks for the review Aaron. Almost everybody stays in Utila longer than they originally planned, so much so that it has become known as "one of the 3 lies of Utila", "I'm leaving tomorrow". I came for 2 weeks in 1994 almost 24 years ago....More
