This hotel has perfectly reasonable rates for their clean air conditioned rooms and the location is to die for! Unfortunately the food is only okay and the drinks are totally overpriced and watered down. After several "shots" of "tequila" my travel companion realized getting a lil tipsy at this location was not possible without spending a lot of money. It's... More

This hotel is pretty good. The price for a room is $35 if you want a room that shares a bathroom or $45 for a room with your own individual bathroom. The room I do not recommend to take is room# 1. This room is on the ground floor and is closer to the outside, so you will always get... More

Just got back from a weeks stay at Picnic Center. We had no reservations when we arrived on the island, wanted to stay at Arenas, luckily they were full. We ended up here and so glad we did. The best location on Picnic beach. The hotel is right there as compared to the other two there that are back from... More

We arrived in Corn island about a week ago. When we arrived we didn't have any place to go. Luckily one of the taxi drivers from the airport took us to this hotel. The view was absolutely breath taking. The rooms were nice and clean and they even had AC. I gave this hotel 4 stars because I felt it... More

Only stayed here one night, but the rooms were clean, had AC, and most importantly the beach was gorgeous. Nice staff, good breakfast, and reasonably priced. Great find and definitely the best beach on the island!

If you want tranquility and what could be the best beach in the entire Caribbean, this is the one for you. Added to that, the prices -- compared to other similar locations -- are darned decent. We came to check it out. We ended up staying more than three weeks. No need to repeat what others say about that amazing... More

Three star due to location. The rooms are very basic, but clean. The staff was friendly - enough. We stayed due to the beach. Calm water, perfect for swimming or floating. The lounge chairs on the beach were cumbersome beasts that weighed an excess of fifty pounds, very hard to move, and ridiculously uncomfortable to lay on. We stayed after... More

Prices compared to other places were great! Location was best on the island! Service was great from the waitress from Leon (they should giver her a raise). If you're reading this thinking, where should we stay? Reserve one night here and look for other places. You won't want to leave. Here on a Saturday Sunday have the taxi take you... More

This property is on the best swimming beach of the island and is close to other properties that have more amenities. I would consider this a one plus star hotel, no frills. The room is adequate, clean, and we felt safe. The staff is kind, and the food is some of the best on the island yet limited to what... More

Great place and location on the island! The prices of the food are a bit high compared to other places you can go to eat. What was nice was being able to open a tab and pay at the end of our stay all at once instead of paying by each meal. I would definitely recommend any of the dishes... More
