Recent Utila reviews

  • Living onto beach

    "Initially we booked Blue Bayou Beach House for 5 nights. We were attracted by the location right next to the coral reefs and of course an affordable price. And we weren't disappointed. The house has a beautiful porch from where you can hum right into the corals. Just outside the house is a great wall with the most amazing corals. Lots of coral fishes. The house is a bit rustic, however charming. There is though one nuisance: Sand flies! You don't notice them, before it's too late. You don't see them, you don't feel, when they bite, but you will seen see the impact of them on your body. So be advised to take need precautions (repellents, baby oil,...). Before making the booking, we had a very positive correspondence with the owners, Deanna and Ed. Very responsive and very helpful. We felt confident throughout the engagement with Deanna and Ed. On the island we were welcomed by Mike, who is kind of a janitor, and he made sure we were put on a taxi (or rather a tuc-tuc) to take us to the beach house. Mike also made sure, everything was ok during our stay. Thanks a lot to Mike!! We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bayou Beach House very much, and we actually extended with it another 2 nights. There are lots of things to do on Utila. Definitely a place to return to...."

  • Oyster Lagoon House is excellent place to stay on Utila

    "I can't say enough good about our stay at this property or the owner Sue and housekeeper Angel. Angel picked us up at the ferry, stopped for some drinks and smokes at a store, and onto the house. He will provide you with transportation for your stay, we chose bikes which he delivered in minutes. The house is in great condition, with everything working perfect, great view of the ocean and mainland front the front porch. 20 Ft across the street is fantastic snorkeling amongst the reefs. A 15 minute walk to the main road, 5 minutes by bike, or just wait a sec and a tuc tuc taxi will zip by. Nice to be close to the action of town but super peaceful and quiet at home every night. Angel was always around in case you needed anything or had questions, but not in your way. He arranged for our transportation to the ferry for departure. We loved working with Sue, she was absolutely perfect with all parts of this trip, from planning, to booking, payments and deposit refund. We would love to go back to Utila and there is no doubt that we will absolutely stay at one of Sue's places again. You can't go wrong and will not be disappointed."

  • Would defiinitely go back, but some pointers ...

    "First off, I would definitely go back. The house is spacious and well maintained in general. The amenities are great, again in general. Snorkelling off the beach in front is fabulous. And the gentleman who looks after the house is absolutely wonderful. However, the internet access was slow and at the very least needs to have a password put on it. I refused to use it for business due to that insecurity. The AC unit in one of the bedrooms didn't work at first and it wasn't all the effective when it do work. It made a difference, but it never got cooler than "quite warm" even with all doors and windows to the bedrooms closed and the AC on all night when we slept. The golf cart has a few tricks you need to be aware of to keep it going, and the headlight didn't work the entire time we were there. So overall I'd say the place is great but it deserves to have the level of care stepped up a notch. Having said that, remember that I would definitely go back. One solid tip - you really need to rent the golf cart. It's a good 20 minute walk to town depending on what part you want to access. And a final tip - if you snorkel off the beach in front, angle toward the right for easier access to deeper water. If you go straight out there are lots of shallows to get through and it's tough to avoid the coral. Enjoy!"

  • Love Tony & Jo!!!

    "We had the most wonderful stay with Tony & Jo, they took such great care of us! The property is paradise, and the pool is absolutely beautiful. Our three children had such a great time. We loved it so much we decided to stay on the island, as we were warned "once you come to Utila, you may never leave". We love running into Tony & Jo in town, they still take great care of us. Thank you so much for everything! We love you guys:)"
