Great hotel built over the water.  Caters to divers with excellent service
and their own dive operation.  Clean large rooms with good AC and porch or
deck. Room furnishings are simple but in good condition.  All but one have
water views. Good home style food. Free wifi with decent signal in most
rooms and public areas. Located in town and easy walking distance to bars,
restaurants, and mini grocery stores. Reasonable prices.
Fly into San Pedro Sula or Roatan. Then local puddle jumper CM Airlines or
charter to Utila. San Pedro Sula Airport is air conditioned throughout.  No
luggage carts.  Has a few small fast food restaurants and small bar.  Has
nice Club Lounge in waiting area open to the public which for $10 provides
meal and an alcaholic or nonalcaholic drink, free wifi, lounge chairs. Had
Drageon sushi roll which was pretty good with coffee and chocolate ice
cream.  Food Service is very slow.  Recommend that you have at least an
hour if you want to take advantage of meal. Several ATMs at airport, but
no bank.
Rooms: Only 8 rooms. All built over the water. Best rooms are close to
dining room on 2nd floor. 
Positives: Every room has comfortable queen bed plus twin with one small
night stand and screened in deck overlooking water.Very clean. Nice long
bench for suitcases, and lots of shelf space to hold other items. Bathrooms
large with double sinks, shower, well lit, newish fixtures. Plenty of hot
water and good water pressure. Lots of U.S. style 3 prong electrical
outlets.  Good strong hi speed wifi in most rooms.  Avoid room H and F
which have poor wifi signal and are set too far back to have vie
