Spending a week here as a couple. Helpful hosts give warm welcome & unmatched service throughout our stay. This place is clean, bright and quiet. Privacy never an issue: this feels like having a house to yourself. Located just outside the buzz. Tip: Rent bikes. All rooms recommended. We don't microwave so we would have liked a real kitchen but...

Of all the places I have stayed across Asia and Latin America, this is my favorite hotel of all time. The staff was excellent, and I can still hear the rain fall as I sat on my balcony and enjoyed the view. Stay here, and you won't be disappointed.

This is my third time staying at the Lighthouse and was just as great, if not better, than the first two. I misplaced my wallet and the owner of the hotel was so gracious and helped me until I was able to retrieve it at the local police. Needless to say, they go above and beyond in all aspects. The...

Thelma and O'neill was super friendly and took good care of us. Rooms were clean and quiet. Location was also good and restaurants were close. It is worth of money for sure. If we come back to Utila we know where we are staying.

The Lighthouse is by far the best hotel on the island of Utila. It gets the 100% Q-S-C-RP factor. Quiet, Safe, Clean, and Reasonably Priced. There is nothing better in this world to lay on a hammock and watch the sunset. The Boddens are wonderful hosts, and have a lot of information to share about the island.

I spent 6 nights at The Lighthouse while in Utila for diving. I can't recommend staying here enough!! Rooms are very clean (and cleaned daily) with great views, great location, hot water, A/C, and hammocks. Can't ask for much more. The location was perfect for me because it's just a few feet from Alton's Dive Center on one side, and...

Four of us spent 2 nights at the Lighthouse in Utila. Great rooms and perfect location. Our rooms were corner rooms facing the bay. The place is immaculate with 2 beds and a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and New a/c. Very cooling and quiet. So you can use the AC or open the windows and get a breeze (okay in...
