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

Giorgio and Teresa are wonderful hosts and Teresa's cooking is incredible (sometimes a bit too much food). Teresa's morning coffee is a perfect start to the day. The little cabins at the front are wonderful. Some draw backs would be that the two hosts seem to be getting a bit tired, the dogs bark a lot (especially at night) and... More

Giorgio and Teresa were the most gracious hosts of this lovely beach bungalow hotel/restaurant. The rooms are beautifully appointed wood fresh and clean just steps from Brig Bay beach on big Corn Island. Unfortunately We weren't able to stay this time but did dine here twice. Each meal was perfectly prepared by Teresa "delizioso!!" Despite a slight language barrier these... More

Four friends and I spent two nights at Bellavista, and were totally spoiled by Giorgio and Teresa. The home cooked dinner on our last night was the highlight of our Corn Islands adventure, and Teresa made sure that we were well caffeinated prior to our early morning flight, with delicious coffee and biscuits. Giorgio offered to drive us everywhere, and... More

We visited Big Corn Island for 2 weeks in December. Although we didn't stay at Bellavista, we spent a lot of time there as it was next door to our hotel. Our hosts Giorgio and Teresa were very hospitable and kind people. We probably had 5 or 6 dinners at their place and every one was amazing. As long as... More
