Recent Utila reviews

  • Great Vacay!

    "Our visit to Utila was memorable due to how welcoming Tony and Jo were. They gave us tips on where to go to since day one and helped us on our dr john tshirt hunt. The apartment is quite spacious with its kitchen, living room and balcony including all amenities like wifi and warm water and everything we needed Tony and Jo made it possible. We considered the location a plus, its close to the convience store but far from traffic noise."

  • 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!"

  • The perfect place in Utila

    "The Round House exceeded my expectations for a vacation rental in Utila. We arrived on 12/21/14 stayed for 6 nights and could have easily stayed 10. The house is well equiped, clean, and in my opinion perfectly situated from town. The snorkeling out the front door is some of the best the island has to offer. The ability to swim and snorkel without making any arrangements is worth a lot by itself. The house is located about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride from town. Probably not as ideally situated if you really want to party, but for a family (as we were with two teenagers) or someone that enjoys some privacy it is perfect. Angel the caretaker is a total gem and will help with whatever you request. Utila is super safe, low key, and has a great island vibe. The large covered porch, big kitchen, beer and soda waiting in the fridge, high ceilings, comfortable beds and short stones throw to the water makes this the perfect island getaway."

  • 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...."
