“Best Place to Enjoy the Sea”
Reviewed 2 January 2007

We happened into the Coral View by approaching the owner who was waiting for a guest at the ferry dock. It was a lucky event. The Coral View has one of the best locations on Utila. It is at the end of a spit with the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other. The room that we had faced the lagoon. The buildings themselves remind me of a Maine lodge. The rooms are small and spartan, but in a woodsy lodge like way. The buildings and grounds are very spacious and completely surrounded by water. The grounds make for easy interaction with other guests.

There is no real beach (typical of Utila) The center of activity is a huge deck from which you can dive or snorkel or just lay out. There is a dramatic wall just off the deck and lots of fish. The resort has a very well equipped dive shop with 2 boats. The current divemasters are a beautiful couple from the US who are incredibly helpful. The diving is so easy, you can schedule it pretty much however you want and you won't be subject to the crowds of other diving expeditions. They have a salt water pool that they use for classes. They also offer nighttime snorkeling, which got great reviews from a father and son duo. We felt like we were being lazy, but we still got so much from the water activities. (a day trip to the cays and kayaking through the mangroves.) The owners are super special people and the food that we had was very good, except that we often made the pretty twenty minute walk to town for meals.

From what we saw elsewhere on the island, if location is important, this is the place.

  • Liked — The beautiful and spacious grounds
  • Disliked — The rooms were a bit spartan
  • Tips/Secrets — The closest and very good restaurant is the Driftwood, owned by Texans
  • Stayed December 2006, travelled as a couple
