Close to the night life yet beautifully situated for a chilled atmosphere, and just a short walk away from town centre. Staying in Pirate's Bay Inn gives you the chance to explore Utila and everything this friendly island has to offer, from the restaurants to the beaches and maybe even to search for Captain Morgan's legendary treasure.

We did our advanced open water PADI here and had a good time. We had an awkward experience with one of instructors and this was dealt with by senior staff which was good to see. We stayed here also and the accommodation was good quality.
