This is my second time visiting Utila and being at Utila Lodge. Walking in and seeing Queenie and Ivy is like being greeted by family, they are by far the nicest people you could ever meet. I was staying at the College but I had two friends that visited me and stayed in the Lodge and I couldn't get over...

My boyfriend and I had an amazing week at the Utila Lodge! Everyone was super accommodating and friendly! Whether it was checking in on us, special food requests, or going to the drugstore for toiletries/medicine for us, we felt very comfortable and pleased with the tremendous service. Queeny was awesome behind the bar, each meal was amazing and authentic, Sean...

Definitely pay Miss Queeny and Miss Ivy a visit at the bar! Great entertainment, quality food, and the best sunset view on the island! Also at night I enjoyed the Eagle Rays that visit the dock almost every night!

After reading many reviews of Utila Lodge we knew fairly well what to expect. When you stay here the intention is to dive. Don't even think of the facility as a resort. Everything is right there: rooms, dining facility, bar and the boat. Albert was our boat captain and he was excellent helping us with gear and getting off and...

Let's be clear - the diving is superb, Willy the dive master and Albert the captain are the best, the food is plentiful and good and the service in the lodge is wonderful. Yes, the rooms are a bit....rustic...but it's Utila. Now the bad news, Because Lodge is associated with the College of Diving, and because the two have not...

Hey Bill, I am really glad to hear that you enjoyed the diving! Albert and Willy certainly are an amazing team. I am very sorry though to hear about the experience you had with our other guests. You are correct in that I am very devoted to all of our guests. Which year they were born in means very little...

Good place for diving adventure. Dive crew, Willy and Albert, are some of the best I have used and I typically do 2 dive trips a year. Lodge is good as far as dive lodges go. Food is good again as far as dive lodges go. This not a place for the comfort creatures. This is for diving and they...
