“If You Go To Utila? You Stay Here”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Lighthouse is perfect, first of all we are staying here during Semana Santa and the island is jumping, but we are sleeping like babies every night and enjoying quiet moments on the balcony overlooking the Caribbean, yet we are still in town so if we wanted to get ourselves into trouble we could. At the Lighthouse you get impeccable service and attention from owner Thelma and her staff. She gives everyone a thorough orientation to the island from which we have used a number of tips, even though I have been to Utila before. They provide lines to hang up your dive gear, the rooms have AC, a small kitchenette (microwave only), cable TV with programming in both English and Spanish, and comfortable beds. Love it...any time I return to Utila this will be my first choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room facing the water...great breezes

The Lighthouse was our home away from home while staying in the town of Utila. Our hosts, Thelma and O'Neill, are fascinating people and cared for us like family. Their gated property is peaceful, immaculate and the rooms are sparkling clean. The sunset views from the balcony are a beautiful end to the day and rom the balcony you can look down into clear water where we saw Eagle rays and a stingray the size of mattress! Needle fish jump and the sounds of the busy town are softened but still audible, as they should be. It is a wonderful place by any standard and we will return to the Lighthouse.

My friend and I stayed at The Lighthouse for a week in March 2013. We were delighted with the place. The beds were like new. The bathroom was first world immaculate. The deck around the place which becomes part of your living space was lovely and afforded beautiful sunset views (we were on the top floor, NW corner). Check this link for a particulars, rates, etc. http://www.aboututila.com/AccomInfo/LightHouse-Hotel/Index.htm
Not a negative thing to say. Exemplary.

The Lighthouse is the perfect place to stay in Utila. We loved it. The rooms were very clean and fresh. It was fun staying out over the water. The view was magnificent. Thelma is a world of information. She made our stay so easy for us. She was a very gracious hostess. You can't go wrong staying at the Lighthouse. Rick & Jan, San Diego, CA

We really, really loved this place. I almost didn't write a review because I don't want the place packed if we ever make it back. It kind of feels like you are on a ship. It is built out over the water and sways a little. Great hosts were always looking out for our best interests. We stayed 4 nights and should have done a week instead. Interesting and safe town as long as you don't get run over by the moto taxis. Spotlessly clean and quiet hotel. Not a party hotel. This is a much cheaper place than Roatan. Wonderful food all within walking distance

Room Tip: Second floor corner rooms toward ocean cannot be beat and worth added cost.

Very hard to come up with anything that hasn't been said already. We stayed in the lighthouse for 5 nights in February 2013. We had no booking, there was a problem with the phone number in the lonely planet so we just chanced arriving there. As soon as we met Thelma we just knew this was the place for us. She even told us to leave our bags with her and go checkout other places to stay on the island before we agree to stay in the lighthouse, but as soon as we saw the rooms we were sold. Spotless modern spacious rooms, amazing views. Perfect place to chill after a day in the sun and watch the sunset. If you're staying in Utila, stay at the lighthouse. Thanks Thelma. James & Linda

Room Tip: Obviously second level rooms facing the ocean are better for views
