Utila Lodge Resort, located on small island of Utila, is an all-inclusive
that is incredibly close and convenient to both diving and
"town". Resort is built over the ocean. No bug problems, probably
due to constant breeze. Staff is friendly and food is generally good. Only
attire required is a bathing suit, shorts, t-shirt. The hammocks were great
for surface intervals. Variety in diving, some strong currents. Many
locations had lovely coral; large schools of fish; crab; lobster; lots of
sand channels between the reefs; eels; manta and eagle rays, a couple of
sites were too silty. A Whale Shark passed right beneath us! Three
dives/day for 5 days, 2 on last day. Dove nitrox. The dive masters should
be more familar with the sites and conditions. Very reasonable, Saturday to
Saturday with 17 dives, food, accommodations cost $850/pp. Of course the
bar tab at the end of the week jacked that up a bit.  We would dive with
this resort again.
