Milton Reyes (born 2 May 1974 in Arenal, Yoro, Honduras) is a Honduran football player, who most recently played for Motagua.

Reyes began playing professional soccer with Yoro FC of the Honduran second division in 1995. The next year he moved to Independiente Villela, where he helped the team to promotion to the first division. He subsequently moved to Motagua, one of Honduras's most prestigious clubs, where he would play from 1997 2002, helping the club to five championships.

In 2002 he would move to Major League Soccer, where he signed a contract with D.C. United. Reyes immediately impressed with his offensive forays from the right back position, and ended the season with 24 starts and two assists to his credit. Unfortunately, Reyes tore his ACL in the 2003 preseason, and was forced to miss all of the 2003 season. Upon his return, Reyes was cut by D.C. United for salary cap reasons, and after considering a return to Honduras, decided to stay in MLS and sign with the Dallas Burn. Although Reyes inititally did not impress in Dallas, as he regained his old form his attacking abilities shone through, and he ended the season at Dallas starting both at the left midfield and left back positions for the team, ending the season with 828 minutes in nine starts. Reyes left the team after the season. He came back to Motagua in 2005.

Reyes has also been an important player for the Honduras national team. Since earning his first cap in March 1999, he has appeared 32 times for the national team, and figured prominently in the team's 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifying run.

Reyes announced his retirement after finishing the clausura 07/08 tournament.
