This place truly has it all, good prices, reliable power, internet, air conditioning, security, amazing views and friendly/helpful owners. You're steps away from Alton's Dive Shop and several restaurants. We found it a little nicer to be a 5 minute walk away from some of the louder parts of the island, so that when it is time to go home,... More

From the moment we arrived, I didn't want to leave. Our western-facing room overlooked the water and had the most amazing sunsets. The provided hammock was my blissful oasis, and I would have stayed there all day if I didn't have exploring to do! The Lighthouse is perfectly situated at the end of the road, right before the bridge, and... More

We were very happy with our accommodations at the lighthouse. We were visiting for diving, and we were near our dive place. We felt safe and felt that it was a wonderful environment. There were places to hang out wet dive gear, hammocks for each room, good wifi, and just in general a great deck. The room was also nice,... More

I was traveling to Utila with a friend and wouldn't have normally booked this because I'm a very low-budget traveler, so I never would have experienced The Lighthouse if not for someone else. Having stayed in low budget accommodations on Utila and staying with The Lighthouse, there is absolutely no comparison. Not only do you have an amazing breeze, respectful... More

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Lighthouse for a few days in March. What a beautiful place. I don't think I have ever stayed any where that was so clean. Thelma and O'Neill are wonderful hosts and gave us many suggestions to fill our days. The hotel is close to many good restaurants and... More

My son and I just returned from a 12 night stay at the Lighthouse. Everything about the place was awesome. Thelma was very nice and helpful.

The property is impeccable. It's far down the road from town is all.... So you'll be walkin' or taxi'in. T and O are interested and interesting. Great views and a calm, relaxing spot. ####<<<<<<< Boats running thru the lagoon can be loud too.
