We arrived at this beautiful hotel, facing the beach, at 8am in the morning and were, initially very impressed. Unfortunately our experience and that of the others also staying with us, steadily went downhill. We were told we couldn't have our room till 2, this was fine but I asked the manager if there was any chance that the 10... More

My husband and I were slated to stay on Little Corn Island for 8 days to start our 3 week Nicaraguan honeymoon. Due to weather, the commercial panga (ferry) was not running. In a panic, we began looking for other accommodations on Big Corn Island and came upon Arenas Beach Hotel. The owner, Lesley, is a fantastic, personable and kind... More

Great hotel if you like to relax & enjoy the beach. Most of the staff is friendly but if you have any issues just ask to talk to the manager. I forgot his name, but he was very friendly & helpful. The food at the restaurant was pretty good too. I would definitely stay there again.

This place has the best beach on the island, period. Water is super clear, beach is very clean, and almost no waves. Good for swimming and snorkeling. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We made a life long friend with one of the Taxi drivers associated with the hotel. Will bring the kiddos next time. Bungalows were nothing special and... More

The staff is friendly, and available for you. Breakfast was included in our package, but prices started around $7 for 2 eggs, ham, toast, butter, jelly, & coffee. Pancakes with bacon and 2 eggs, etc. The rooms are clean, smell fresh and cleaning staff are quick to bring towels or toilet paper. We took a snorkeling trip with Tiburon Diving... More

We stayed for two nights. The room was very nice, nothing fancy with decor or furniture, but you don't need it when there is fabulous beach outside. The beach is across a small road and is, indeed, very nice. Staff is polite and helpful and there is a nice balcony in the room and plenty of seating space outside. Food... More

Stayed 3 nights here, undoubtedly the best feature is the lovely beach directly opposite. The rooms in the hotel (not the separate cabanas) were next best - quite spacious, clean, with a fridge (there is a supermarket a few minutes walk away). However almost without exception and disappointing to have to write this but the staff were generally disengaged and... More
