Great stay, clean and cozy, all rooms are a couple steps from the beach. Alessandro and Constanza are great and always willing to help us around. The food at their restaurant is amazing, I had the best octopus alla Luciana I’ve ever tried.

I planned to stay a few days at Princessa en route to little corn in December. Giving that it was high season, I contacted the host and made a hotel reservation prior to finalizing my travels. Having the hotel reservation, I then proceeded to booking flights. Once all was booked I was excited and looking forward to my trip. However I received an email from Princessa saying they had a problem with my credit card. I resent the info and asked them to confirm that all was ok. Instead, they told me that they no longer had availability. They gave up the room to another client. I argued that I had received a confirmation from them and sent them my credit card info before the other client came along.They basically dismissed this and didn’t offer any solution. Very disappointing and lacking in customer service to simply not be able to manage reservations service in a reliable fashion.

A lovely clean, wooden bungalow with WARM shower,on stilts right by the beautiful blue sea, delicious food ...and no gallos pintos in sight!,fascinating conversations with the hosts and guests, easy walks to fabulous beaches and interesting docks. Fixed price 20 /25 Córdoba taxis to go further around the small island.What more could you ask for? We loved our stay here and would thoroughly recommend it. We felt no need to scuttle off to Little Corn.

This is a first class Italian restaurant. Costanza and Alessandro, the hostess and chef, are from Rome and create wonderful Romano style dishes with local and imported ingredients.On our six days on Corn Island we ate there twice. Couldn't get enough.

Described as interesting! We went in October, thus many things were closed. The water was not inviting enough to swim around the hotel b/c there is very little Land. (I felt like there may be oil and gas from the boats)In fact, when you arrive at high tide a big, strong handsome man scoops you in his arms and lands you on concrete steps (including my long legged husband. Get your camera ready. The exterior of the hotel was painted bight reds and yellows and surrounded by water. The dining area was great for watching waves. The staff members were very helpful, but all the fantastic restaurants you read about were closed and so were many hotels. You can walk the island, but muddy in some areas and be prepared for a downpour. Outside the compound of the hotel were your islanders playing loud music along with children and groups of men chatting, but I never felt unsafe. There were many small stores to buy large water, Gatorade and even alcohol . If we go back it will be at a different time of year. Oh and the boat ride was not nearly as scary as I had read and no one “lost their cookies. Your bags are stowed and will not get wet, but anything in your lap has the potential as you are sprayed anywhere you sit. I will say they have a large piece of plastic spread over your head to help keep you dry. Boat driver was husband of owner where we stayed and was very good. The hotel staff were great, but disappointed that we could not see water from our room. Rooms were not great, but comfortable bed! La Princess de la Islam is where we stayed. Again, staff were great, good food and exterior inviting, but hotel room was a 2 star.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and were not disappointed. The room was clean, well appointed and very cosy. There were little deck chairs to sit out on outside looking right out at the water and pretty beaches nearby. It was truly an island getaway with the only "noise" being that of the waves on the shore to lull you to sleep at night. The Italian owners were so friendly and helpful right from the moment we arrived. They could not do enough to make our stay something positive to remember. They serve traditional Italian food, and coffee, in their restaurant but take note that you must book in advance. It is totally worthwhile though if you do eat there. I would have no doubts in staying here again. Just a lovely place to stay!

This was an incredible time for us as we were celebrating our belated honeymoon. The owners did everything and more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The room was clean, spacious, simply beautiful. Great bathroom with exposed stone in the shower. Whole place is amazing. Many spots to seat and relax, read book. I know some people were complaining about mosquitos and ants, but hey it's an island, exotic country. If you want to stay in bugs-proof acommodation- choose one of big, boring resorts with AC and locked windows. The place is run by lovely Italian couple. You can grab a beer or bottle of rum from the bar anytime you want :) You need to book in advance if you want to have dinner there, but you won't be dissappointed! Although the food served in restaurant is Italian only, it's cooked with local ingrediends, catch of the day and I must say it was one of the best italian meals we have had ! And the atmosphere there is just amazing. Finished our meal with shot of grappa and homemade ( grandma recipe) limoncello :) Thank you again for making our stay so special. We will cherish those memories forever. English-Polish couple

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in a private cabana. First impression was that the grounds for Princess was very clean and nice aside from the garbage that the waves have brought to shore. The cabana was pretty basic and bare bones, but the bathroom was the best part with the great mirror lighting, space, and hot water! It was the first hot water we had in a couple weeks, but we did splurge by staying here. It was about $75/night. We didn’t try their Italian restaurant as we felt it was expensive for Nica standards and we didn’t travel to Nicaragua to have Italian food anyways, but their real coffee both American and Italian was worth it as it’s been impossible to find good coffee most of our trip. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, always with huge smiles and enthusiastic to help when we asked for a taxi, etc. For the cost, I wish there were more hammocks especially on the cabana deck, but we’ve noticed hammocks seemed to be lacking in many beach front places in general in the Corn Islands for some odd reason. This place was a nice small yet a little rugged personable spot without that resorty feel.
