My buddy and I came to Utila to dive. The moment we were picked up by the hotel staff at the airport we were treated like kings until we left. Great location, great rooms, 5-star staff. Alice and Marley will ensure that everything is taken care of and the prices are super reasonable. This is widely agreed on the island...

An amazing place all around! We took a large group of high school students down for a week of diving and marine education! Our trip was unique as we got to experience all four businesses affiliated with this property, and they were all fantastic! The rooms were really great complete with air conditioning, and most importantly, a coffee wake up...

Wow, what a fantastic week spent with the wonderful folks at Utila Lodge. Our group of 18 landed at the remote air strip on Utila Island, Honduras and we were greeted with a warm smile by a staff member from the lodge. A short van ride later we were at the lodge enjoying a welcome cocktail while being briefed on...

Just returned from a week of diving at Utila Lodge in Honduras. Willie, our dive master and Albert, our boat captain took great care of our group and were very entertaining.

The room are spacious and very clean. All the staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Everybody is superfriendly. After 2 dives we would go after dinner for a third dive, but there was a whaleshark sighted. The staff asked us what we wanted and we wanted to see the Whaleshark, so we went looking for...

We were diving while we stayed here. Very handy as its right on the dock near the dive boats. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very affordable. Discounted if you are diving too! Centrally located to the downtown - lots of places to dine nearby.

We very much enjoyed our stay, but there were some pros and cons... Pros - The place is clean and well maintained . The staff is very friendly and helpful! The whole set up is very convenient for divers, and the dive staff and boats are excellent! (If you get to dive with Willy, bring him some trail mix!) The...

Simply the best place I've stayed in Utila so far. Loved the staff, especially Queen Anne, Ivy, and Belicia. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and made sure that I had a great stay. Fantastic view from the room and excellent hot water which was actually necessary on one of the rainy days. Very comfortable beds and all around great...
