Not a lot we can add to the glowing reviews that this place consistently receives. The location IS exceptional. The rooms ARE spotless. The prices ARE a great deal. Thelma and O'Neill ARE extremely helpful and full of valuable information about the island. The only thing I have to suggest is ; if you are the type to party hard... More

What a value for US $53/night! My experience staying at the Lighthouse was nothing less than wonderful. The property was built by the proprietors (who have long family roots in Utila).Their attention to detail in all aspects is impressive. Rooms are spotless, comfortable, and a perfect island experience with sliding patio doors and ceiling fans. AC is available, as are... More

I had the fortunate opportunity to stay at the Lighthouse Hotel on Utila Island, Honduras on January 19-26, 2014 with four other friends. Thelma, the owner, and her team made our stay very enjoyable. We had bay view rooms on the second floor and had THE BEST views on the entire island. From our balcony, we watched rays, sharks, and... More

We stayed here for two nights, the owners are very helpful and really take care of their business and customers. The rooms are extremely clean, it is a safe hotel and the views are just stunning. From seeing options around utila this is by far the best Choice.

I cannot say enough about Thelma the proprietor. She is a peach. Warm and kind. The rooms are extremely clean, comfortable, and bright. The staff is friendly and reliable. We spent 10 days here in January 2014. Rainy weather was not a problem because our accommodations were so comfortable. Back to Thelma...I highly recommend that you listen to her arrival... More

super clean, wonderful location, wifi was not good, had to sit outside to get it but what can you do, super friendly owners, would not stay anywhere else on Utila. There is a great burger place almost across the street. Buy the water from the owner, better deal then from the supermarket.

Quick review: Bed = 3/5. Shower = 4/5. Internet: 2/5 (Too slow for video, but free). The first thing that strikes you about The Lighthouse is that the rooms are extremely clean. The building itself is also very well maintained! The lady that runs this place is very proper and service minded. In fact, there is a certain (and I... More

After a week in a stuffy sweaty dorm with 3 other people and being ripped off at the Jade Seahorse my fiance and I decided to stay at the Lighthouse over the Chrismas holidays. This place is immaculate! I don't even wanna leave!! And no sand flies here. If your willing to splurge a little definitely stay here!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days in August. I can not say enough about Thelma the women who runs this hotel. She gives you a little speech when you first arrive. I didn't mind, because she covered just about every question you have or will have. That way you are free to enjoy the rest of your... More

Stayed there for a week in July. Thelma gives you a quick talk about the island right after you check in. The place was quiet, relaxing, very clean and the views over the water were great. We would awake each morning, brew some coffee and watch the water for stingrays and the sky for birds.She even arranged for our tuk... More
