We stayed at the Lighthouse for 3 nights at the beginning of our stay as the house we were renting was booked until Saturday but I am so glad the opportunity to meet this amazing woman and stay at the Lighthouse! I can't say anything that hasn't been said before. It was just the perfect introduction to Utila with gorgeous...

The lighthouse has the best location, value and hotel room throughout the island in my opinion. 1. Location: 3 mins walk from the town center, it's very convenient but not to much noisy from the Main Street. Plus, 3 mins walks from the private beach in one direction or 3 mins walks from Alton Dive Shop in the other direction.There...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Lighthouse and had an incredible visit to Utila. We didn't realize when we booked our trip, but went during Semana Santa, supposedly the busiest week of the year. Thelma was VERY thorough in explaining all of the necessary info about the island and the Lighthouse - a place that is family owned...

Spent 4 days at The Lighthouse earlier this month and could not have been happier with the place , location and care we received. My wife was ill and got a lot of TLC from Thelma. We plan on staying there any time we visit Utila from now on.

Thelma ensures you have the best possible stay in Utila. She ensures your safety and comfort. We stayed at 2 other places in Utila, and The Lighthouse was the best place we stayed for a great value. ................,.........

Thelma runs a really tight ship at The Lighthouse. This little boutique hotel is amazingly quiet, extraordinarily clean and has the best views available of Utila harbor. The prices are quite reasonable, the staff is very honest and the whole vibe is one of a secure, laid back cocoon in the Caribbean. No wonder so many of the guests we...

We wanted to go splurgey (by Honduran standards) but not too splurgey during our recent visit to Utila with my daughter and her spouse, so we each booked bay-facing rooms for four nights at the Lighthouse for $68 a night. I didn't regret a penny of it. The hotel isn't just on the water, it's over the water, built on...

Lovely, small hotel directly above the Bay. We always had a East wind blowing to cool us even in the heat of the day. You felt totally safe and secure at this establishment. Thelma was a wonderful host and gave us honest, down to earth information about getting around on the Island and what to expect. It's the prettiest hotel,...

The light house is in a great location right near the dock where the ferry lands.The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Thelma was very nice and had lots of information about the island would stay there again in a heartbeat!!

I did quite a bit of research before going to Utila, and I am glad to have found the Lighthouse. My research pales in comparison to "Utila 101" or Miss Thelma's basic instructions on Utila survival.If you require a clean,comfortable room, secure surroundings at a very reasonable price, this place is for you.It's an easy walk to anywhere in town,...
