My uncle and I spent 5 days on Big Corn Island in January 2015. Upon arriving, we were somewhat disappointed... all the online pix you see give one the impression that the hotels are right on the beaches. In reality, no hotel on the island is really on a beach, except for Casa Canada, and the beach there is just... More

Read the reviews on Tripadvisor and thought it was a good choice for our one night stay in Little Corn as it was close to town. I know prices are pretty high on the Corn Islands but the amount we paid for this hotel was too high for what you get. The room is ok and definitely acceptable if a... More

Really helpful, great speaking to and also cook great italian food and delicious breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay! The beach just in front... More

We booked the Bellavista for 4 nights, and Giorgio was at the airport to pick us up as requested. I thought this would be a nice change of pace, and I was right. Giorgio and Teresa are the very welcoming Italian couple who own the Hotel Bellavista. Our room was comfortable and at the main building. My only complaints were... More

Just returned home from Bellavista and I'm missing it already. What really makes this place is the fantastic owners and the awesome food. Room: we had a huge room with one large bed and two bunks, an ex-large kitchen stove/fridgo with all the cups, plates, pots/pans you need to make a great meal (perfect for breakfast, snacks, and meals), a...

This colorful and welcoming hotel was great place for our group of travelers. We spent one night here and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived very early in the morning and the lovely italian couple that owns the place made us some delicious coffee and cookies while we waited for our rooms. The rooms were clean and simple. The beds... More

i cant thank giorgio the owner enough for my time at his beautiful, tranquil oasis. The location is great- located seconds from picnic beach, the best on big corn (which i actually preferred to the beaches on little corn); its very clean; the rooms are beautiful; and if you like italian food this is the place for you. Giorgio also... More

Let me address some complaints about the fence that surrounds the main building. The Corn Islands are fraught with petty theft and it is extremely reassuring to have the security offered by this fence. Furthermore, you can keep your possessions safe and only 30 seconds away because the beautiful beach is just in front of you! The hosts are extremely... More

Giorgio and Teresa are a lovely Italian couple who run a wonderful hotel. We had plans to stay at another hotel but ended up here when the other place was full. Our room had a Kitchen, private bathroom, comfortable queen size bed with a mosquito net and a huge deck out front with lounge chairs. The view is picture perfect,... More
