“Laguna Vista is Tikitty Boo!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I decided to spend my 40th birthday in Utilla with my husband and some friends after reading about the great diving there. We are not all inclusive resort people so for accommodations we were looking for a 2 bedroom apt or house. After reading tons of reviews and poring over the About Utila website I decided to contact Tony and Jo to ask about the apts at The Gardens at Jericho. From my first communication with them, I knew the trip was going to be fantastic. They were so helpful figuring out our accommodations and dive plans (they connected us with Coral View Dive Shop - check out our review), and once we got there, we could not ask for better hosts. We were arriving at the tail end of Semana Santa so everything was booked on the island but Jo arranged for us to stay our first night in the Gardens and then moved us to the private residence, Laguna Vista, for the rest of the week.

When we arrived at the mammoth airport in Utila - kidding, it’s only an airstrip - we were met by Tony and Jo, who greeted us with big hugs and birthday wishes. It was like meeting up with old friends. We immediately felt at home. They arranged for taxis to bring us to the Gardens and upon our arrival, we had a fridge full of beer (woo-hoo!) and fresh mini-bananas (super delicious) from the garden. The apartment was great. Since, as I mentioned, most of the island was booked we stayed in a one bedroom but they set it up perfectly with a comfy bed in the common area, which was fine for us since we were moving into Laguna Vista the next day. Obviously , the one bedroom makes more sense for one couple (or maybe a couple with small kids) but the apartment was great - lots of room, nice kitchen, good shower, and a lovely deck to hang out on to drink your beers and check out the gardens from above.

The next day while we were diving, Tony and Jo moved all of our stuff into the house at Laguna Vista. We were pretty excited when we got back to find the gorgeous pool, palapa with a ceiling fan and an Ipod dock, again a fridge full of beer, and that was just outside. The house was also fantastic - 2 spacious bedrooms with bathrooms, nice comfy living area and a huge kitchen with all the amenities. The house was very clean and nicely decorated, with lots of little details including fresh cut flowers everyday in various spots around the pool. And did I mention how awesome the pool was?

I’d say that Tony and Jo went out of their way to make sure our stay was fantastic, but I don’t think any of the great things they did for us was “out of their way”. They are natural hosts and enjoy seeing their guests have a great time. They made sure we got a tour of the town, took us to great spots, recommended places to eat, and introduced us to a gang of awesome new friends. They even sprang for champagne for my birthday! I can’t say enough great things about these two. You’re just going to have to go and experience it for yourself. Do it. Now. Hurry!

We are already planning our trip back for February 2013.

“Luxury in Utila”
Reviewed 31 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed at this wonderful apartment for 5 days. It is very well appointed, and opens up onto a beautiful tiled pool and sitting area. The owners make every effort possible to make your stay pleasant and memorable. We would stay there again. The location is near the end of a dead end road, so it is quiet, but just a short ways from the main town.

Liked best: The pool and outdoor sitting area, then the comfortable beds
Liked least: The bedside lamp didn't work, but the owners fixed it, as soon as they were told.
