About Fabian Moreno

Enthusiast of life, love, great friends and family.

Why Fabian Moreno chose Bay Islands

Preserving the Utila Iguana and its critical mangrove habitat is not our only goal. We are also working towards:

Sustainable development of Utila (a popular destination for divers) to protect the island’s natural resources.

Enhancing awareness among the people living and working in Utila, including working with schools and educating children and young people on the island about their environment.

We aim to buy all our materials from local businesses and hire local labour as far as possible in order to support the Utilan economy. Our volunteers are also encouraged to make their purchases in local shops. We will always strive to conserve and respect the land we are on to the fullest. All These units are going to have solar energy panels as part of the project when completed.

What makes this villa unique

Access to the newest accomodations on Utila. Beach Front access in a private relaxing atmosphere. Unique island characteristics not found on ordinary 'commercialized' destinations. Best and least expensive diving on this island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at the Oyster Bed lagoon Villa was a blast. The house is located on the main street with easy access to bars and restaurants . The local people like to party and are very friendly. I was too busy at the bars and could not complete my open water diving certification (couldn't get up early every morning); great excuse to go back to Utila. The unit was luxurious and cleaned daily. We had a party on the last night with my new local and tourist friends. The house has a great setting to entertain in front of the beach and they are building a swimming pool in front of the ocean. I look forward to coming back soon.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The units and amenities were amazing. Spacious, comfortable and clean. The support staff (security/cleaning) were friendly and eager to help in anyway. Very close to the dowtown area, yet far enough away to be quite and peaceful. Highly recommended place to stay. Planning on coming back soon.

Oyster Bed Lagoon in Utila

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with semi-private swimming pool, shared with one more villa. Fortunately there was a nice group on the other villa and we party together. We had a BBQ on the pool deck.

The sun rise from the master Bed Room Balcony is spectacular to have a cup of coffee before diving. Bath tub is great to relax after diving and recharge skin and mind. Most TV channels are in Spanish.

Easy access to main street restaurants. I paid $2.00 for taxi run of 10 minutes to downtown. Beach front restaurants have great food at a low cost, nice wine selection from Chile and Argentina. Utila has narrow streets and a lot of people walking, easy to make friends.

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults so the 3 bedrooms with attached baths were perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed and somethings we never thought we would need like the little cooler we found which came in handy for our adventures exploring the island. The bedrooms were well furnished and the bathrooms were spacious. The water pressure was touch and go but nothing you couldn't handle. From our arrival to our departure if there was anything we needed or couldn't find, Frank was the go-to-man. He even arranged a beverage delivery to the villa on a day we were out on a boat cruising around the island. I highly advise to get a golf cart - it came in handy for exploring which we did a lot of, I think we found roads that weren't even on the map, and for those trips into the grocery store and restaurants. The pool was a nice thing, sometimes you want to get cooled off and not have it be salt water There is some construction in progress and it appears that Oyster Bed Lagoon is going to expand a great deal - I don't like to see that, we enjoyed being there with no neighbors and just the ocean and mangroves to look at. We ate breakfast in most days, occasional sandwiches for lunch and left-overs for dinner 2 nights. We took advantage of the wonderful ocean breeze during the day and turned on the air conditioning at night. We tried to sleep with the windows open one night but the no-see-ems found us and it wasn't pleasant So if you are careful you shouldn't have any problem staying within the allotted 30 KW..We used Coral Bay divers on the west end of the island and they were wonderful - Jen was awesome. They even credited us because one of our party had a medical issue and was unable to do their dive. We went to Neptunes beach and our experience was only OK, The beach and snorkeling were good but when we got there we ordered lunch and at the same time two dive boats pulled in and we ended up waiting 90 minutes for our meal. Water Cay was a nice day trip. My only suggestions for the villa would be lounge chairs around the pool and information about the island - a map would have been helpful , listing of restaurants, grocery stores etc. And just a hint - all the restaurants aren't open every day so ask around. RJ's was good but get there early and the best pizza was at Skidrow. We had a wonderful time and would certainly stay here again.Maybe we will see whale sharks next time. Thanks Fabian and Frank.

Top Villa for good time in Utila

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 friends traveling from Europe to Utila for the new year.

We had such a good time. The villa is very well located with walking distance to the center where all restaurants and bars are.

The villa is very clean and well organized ( 1 bathroom per room which is great and a gain of time). The owner and its local interlocutors were all very nice and helpful with us. The house is very secured with a guard 24h/24h.

Swimming pool was a plus!

I strongly recommend this accommodation for your next trip!

An awesome getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing, great pool which everyone greatly enjoyed the benefit of simply walking outside and being able to swim. Great view ocean directly across street, easy transportation or short walk to town secluded enough for privacy but not so far away you miss anything. Great host and communication throughout the whole trip.

Only recommendation is provide a fold out couch vice the current couch for sleeping with parties of more then 6. Other then that it was great and an amazing time we all thoroughly enjoyed, would come back in a second.....I would use this house everytime and dependable service, Kevin from Captain Morgan was a great steward and helped as well making the trip complete with a few dives from his shop.

Get away from it all... I mean really!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of May here and had a marvelous time. Fabian was exceptionally responsive to all queries leading up to our stay and while on site, Frank was very helpful as well. We went to Utlia on a whim with no real expectations of what it would be like and were very pleasantly surprised! We never had a bad meal and it was also very affordable which was nice. Daisy cooked for us a few times and even made a birthday cake for my daughter's 17th! We also loved Marios; there were 7 of us and each of us loved the meal that we had there. The best surprise was the beach at Neptunes! WOW!!! We loved it! Great snorkeling, drinks, lunches... highly recommended! The people that we encountered on the island were with one notable exception extremely hospitable. I must warn any travelers to avoid Denny Bush however. He was the boat captain recommended to us. He did not honor the prices that were agreed upon before we set out for a fishing trip/island transfer. Not only did he not honor his agreed upon price but while we were midway between islands he tried to renegotiate the deal and then took us to a different drop point which required us to get alternate transportation upon arrival... When he dropped us off and we were unloading our luggage he changed the agreed upon price AGAIN. When we questioned him again, he took one of our suitcases and tried to leave with it, when we tried to get it back from him, he actually broke the suitcase trying to keep it from my husband and sons. In all the travels we have ever had, we have never encountered someone as dishonest as Denny Bush. Other than him however, Utila was wonderful and I would happily return.
