My friend and I ended up staying on Utila an extra 2 nights due to the ferry not running (which we didn't complain about because anyone who has been to Utila knows how easy it is to fall in love with!) We found this hotel on our last night, and our only regret is that we didn't find it sooner!...

Ive been here twice, once years ago when me and my wife got our open water and once last season on our honeymoon in the honeymoon suite. Both times we felt like it was a home away from home. It gives you all the basics for a good price with good people.I would highly recommend the honeymoon suite the sunsets...

Owners make you feel right at home. Big rooms with fan. Your own bathroom! There's a kitchen you can make use off. Fresh fish if you want. Fisherman comes every now and then. A lot to do if you want it. Walks across the island, canoo rides. Scuba diving, snorkling.

We rented out the honeymoon suite for the gorgous view of the bay! We kept our french doors open all night to hear the water as we slept. Rubi's is in the center of everything. The owners were very helpful and nice. I rented out three rooms for a birthday dinner I was having on the island. I have trouble...

Unfortunately, I had to leave this place, since all the noise and party that was going on with some German guys who were staying here, I warmed the owner and I dont think he did anything to solve the situation, after having two terrible nights here, the place is fine, and the service was good, but need a lot of...

The most memorable thing about this hotel will be the way we would arrive back in the afternoon to find our clothing and belongings nearly sorted, as opposed to the tornado we had left. Very friendly staff, great location, and not badly priced for Utila, 30$/night, considering Mango Inn wanted $68. The dock was great to hang out at swim...

I largely chose Rubi's because of the hammocks when I was reading my guidebook, but it was much better than JUST hammocks. The inn is tucked back from the road, right along the water, and you have a private dock to swim or sunbathe, beautiful sunset views, and yes, a couple hammocks. Also, instead of sand there's coral and shells...

This gem will always have a soft spot in our hearts. We stayed here for eight days while taking our advanced diving training at Parrots. It's the perfect place for us! The owners Tony and his wife couldn't be friendlier and more helpful! We paid a fair price for an extremely clean room with air conditioning. The housekeeping is some...

We stayed at Rubi's for just over a week and cannot say enough how lovely Rosa & Tony are! They are some of the nicest people and are so helpful and welcoming. We stayed in the upstairs room #12 with a private balcony and it was well worth the additional cost. They helped with restaurant recommendations(Mario's has the best fresh...

“If you get a choice of rooms, the upstairs one overlooking the sea is the best as its balcony is large and private and affords the best views of the sea and sunset.”
