A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights while we learned to scuba dive with the dive shop that is connected with Casa Iguana (Dive Little Corn.) The connectedness between the hotel and dive shop was definitely convenient as you could order food from the dive shop to have it be ready at Casa Iguana when you walked back. The view was amazing from Casita #4 where we stayed, and the ocean breeze kept the room perpetually cool. The staff was nice and helpful.
Things to note for potential guests:
1: The water taxi ride can be unbelievably intense. This is removed from Casa Iguana's control and is a consideration for staying on Little Corn itself and is obviously outside of the control of any of the hostels. That being said, we had no idea when we went (end of November), and I just want to list that as something to possible expect if you visit.
2: There are no electrical outlets in the room, only in the actually main building where reception is. This was a minor annoyance, but given that Casa Iguana supplies their own power, it is fine.
3: Cost of breakfast and other food is a little on the high side in terms of price. Nothing exorbitant, but definitely adds up very quickly.
All in all, I would stay there again for the view and breeze alone. Highly recommended.
