Recent Utila reviews

  • family vacation

    "We had our big family vacation this year in this beautiful villa in Utila. We were a total of 11 people with 6 adults and 5 children. There was more than enough room for all of us. The rooms were large, clean and the air conditioners worked wonderfully. Kids spent hours in the pool while we enjoyed the incredible view from the back porch. The island offered some of the best snorkeling and diving spots in the whole world but there was even plenty of snorkeling to be done from right in front of the house. We got to see eels and stingrays along with other tropical fish right in front of the house. It was truly amazing. The house had WiFi and US satellite TV to keep us in contact with home. Town is 5 minutes golf cart ride away. We felt very safe throughout the stay. Blanca went out of her to make sure we had an incredible vacation."

  • Palms Condo

    "The condo at the Palms was a great location on the island and a nice home inside. It's located just outside of town, so it's a little quieter than the center of town - you'll want bikes or a golf cart if you plan to go into town regularly. We did our dive certification next door at Coral View Resort, and so the location was also convenient for that. The house served its purpose well. I wished there had been some screens for the doors so that we could keep air flowing without letting all the bugs in. However, there were several fans, which helped significantly. The home is a full time vacation rental, so it's supplies and decorations are basic and pretty sparse. However, the owner was very helpful and friendly both during the planning stage and during our stay. The rooftop palapa overlooking the lagoon was the best outdoor space at the condo and we spent our cocktail hour there in the evenings."

  • It felt like home..

    "ony and Jo don't just rent their property, the make you feel like you home. A couple so hospitable and warm! They picked us up from the ferry and showed us the island of Utila.The next day we had a wonderful trip to the Cayes with them and other tenants from the Gardens,it was like a family getaway, hot dogs on a deserted island is something unforgettable.Tony and Jo also arranged a Kayak trip with Steve through the mangroves and out into Turtle Bay,and helped us with advise about anything we asked! Oh yeah, the property? :) Booking our stay we got the quickest response with the most detailed answers and advice,so we knew everything about the Gardens AND Utila island way before we arrived,it was very helpful. The property is very clean and very well maintained( new microwave and stove,nice dishes,furniture,decor,purified water, and a real garden!) compared to other buildings on the island,if you are looking for apartment - long or short term -it's the best choice. It's located off the main street,which is a 10-15 minute walk,or less, - or a dollar taxi drive ( Tony and Jo were so kind to let us use one of their cell phones, we could call a taxi any time and it would arrive to the Gardens in 5 minutes) There are properties right on the main street,where all the action is,sounds attractive, but really, they didn't look nearly as clean and new as the Gardens,with its perfectly maintained territory, with all the appliances you need for cooking or just chilling, and a great price as well,so we were more than happy with our choice.Central America can be a very different experience compared to US but we did feel at home throughout our entire stay in Utila. Thank you Tony and Jo, we'll see you next year!"

  • Excellent vacation home....

    "This cute house on Utila was a pleasure to stay at while on Utila. Utila is a small Island with no cars and main tourist attraction is diving. Due to this having a house with a pool was amazing as some of us were not divers. We soon realized we were also one of very few places with a pool on the Island. The house is mid-range accomodation but great for Utila. It is only the main level of the house. There were no lounge chairs and the hammock was not available as seen. In the kitchen it needed upgraded cutting utensils. All in all though a great lil spot and nothing missing that ruined our trip by any means. Utila is a very low key, backpacker type Island so this property in comparison to most other accomodations on Utila is high end. JJ and his wife who manage the property were also amazing. They were easily accessible and eager to help us with any questions or problems (which were minimal). I would definately stay at this property again if I returned to Utila. :)"
