We stayed here after staying at our dive centre during while getting our dive certification (accommodation is usually included). The lighthouse is definitely a step up from the average accommodation on Utila where backpacker dorms or very basic rooms are the median. The rooms are delightful with full amenities (aircon, tv, hot shower, microwave, fridge) and the views are unsurpassable. After a week and a bit of some crazy partying it was great to have this paradise to escape to. The prices are not backpacker but they are not expensive, especially if there are two of you and you stay for 7 days or more. But the best thing about this place is the care and attention from the owner (I feel terrible now that I cannot recall her name). She is full of great information about the island and goes above and beyond to ensure that your stay the is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. She has great pride in her hotel and home and it shows in the care that she has towards all her guests. Rather than staying in a hotel it feels more like you are visiting with family. I would recommend this place to stay for anyone wanting something more up market and away from the noise (although close enough to still be involved if you want to me).
Note - there is no dive centre affiliated with this hotel.
