  • Magnificent property, beautiful setting and great staff.

    "Our vacation was perfect. We were able to dive, snorkel and fish while enjoying the beautiful house. Spent a lot of time in pool. Sleeping was uncomfortable at times because there is no AC but lots of fans are provided which made it better. Definitely rent a car and explore the island, it's beautiful. Kevin, Clair and Desiree were the perfect hosts and could answer all questions and provide any assistance needed (including getting a key after locking ourselves out!). Thank you for a lovely experience."

  • The Caribbean as it should be !!!

    "Wilmont Bay Retreat is the perfect place to stay on the perfect Caribbean Island to visit (Guanaja). This is the kind of place to go if you love nature, a pristine environment, and a lot of outdoor activities to participate in. It is not a place where you will be one of thousands of tourists trying to "hit all of the highlights" of a beach destination in a few short hours (cruise ports come to mind). If shopping malls and casinos are your preference, you better go elsewhere. Guanaja may be a little more difficult to get to than a lot of other Caribbean destinations, but that is probably what has enabled it to remain an unspoiled and off the beaten path kind of a destination. The extra effort is definitely worth it. Guanaja (and Wilmont Bay Retreat) are true tropical gems, and some of the few remaining ones in the Caribbean today. Activities that I participate in are Diving, Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Hiking, all of which are top-notch, with no crowds to deal with. You host (Cindy) does an excellent job acquiring your groceries before you arrive, which allows you more time for engaging in all of the activities that are awaiting you. One of my favorite times at Wilmont Bay Retreat is about 8pm - 10pm when it gets dark and the stars shine brightly overhead (and the waves roll onto shore). An hour or two of this relaxes the soul and prepares you for a great night's sleep on the extremely comfortable beds in the cottages. We have stayed at Wilmont Bay Retreat twice over the last few months and plan on going back every year, as often as we can. You will feel the same way once you have visited. I have stayed in many places on many islands and this is one of my favorites !!!"

    "What a wonderful place!!! The hosts, Tony and Jo are such terrific, big hearted, charming people that definitely know their community and the people well. They treat you like family. The house is beautiful, with plenty of room and with an amazing pool. The island is beautiful and full of activities and the people are so helpful, nice and charming. I loved our short visit to Utila. I highly recommend staying with Tony and Jo at Laguna Vista. They will show you amazing time!!!! I can't wait to visit again!!!"

  • Perfect condo at a great property

    "About the condo: great size, well stocked, comfy bed. Being in the back of the property didn't bother us one bit, on the contrary: it was always quiet at night. Having the fridge and kitchen was great, we got supplies from the west bay market (one min walk) and made great sandwiches with meats from their deli (they slice it fresh for you, plenty of choices of meats and cheeses, lovely people) About Infinity: phenomenal staff, always ready to make your day a memorable one. Ziggy at the bar deserves a special mention, as well as his Monkey la las. Swiss Chocolate is always smiling, a pleasure to hang out with. Cold beer, great pool, amazing beach and snorkeling. The nachos are plentiful, the fish and chips are great and the fish tacos are really good! About the experience: the beach is lined with restaurants/bars, we would go for a walk for dinner and had some good food! Bananarama's Thirsty Turtle makes great drinks, calzones and curry. And don't miss movie night at the beach on Tuesdays! During the day, we would stay at our beach chair and had chicken empanadas from the guy that sells at the beach. Luis comes around a couple times a day, it's great value and honest food. Also loved the kid who sells fresh diced fruit (in a pack with a disposable fork), $1 gets you a mix of watermelon, pineapple and cantaloupe. Don't miss it. My husband got certified to dive in West End, and the water taxi being in front of the property was great. The same boat waited for him every day, it worked for both parties. West End is cool and worth a quick visit, but there is no doubt that the best place to stay is West Bay! We had a blast."
