After eating on both BCI and LCI for a week I expected more from this place, and it was sadly our least favorite. The first thing I noticed is that it was the most expensive menu I had seen during the whole trip with plates priced around $14-16 USD each. We got the curry lobster which was okay, but so... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night while on our way back to Managua from Little Corn Island. We stayed in room #4 and it was exactly what we needed. Big comfy bed, AC, And TV. We enjoyed resting in comfort before we spent the next two days heading back to the US. The staff was very friendly... More

If you ask Michelle for her Piña Colada, you will end up asking for a second round! Her secrete recipe makes this cocktail delicious. Now wait for the Caribbean sauce lobster, it's a killer! Great atmosphere by the sea, good vibes only!

I went with my family to Big Fish Cafe for dinner. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is really nice. Great music, nice people and outstanding seafood. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

The fish was good, the beer was cold and we were able to sit back and relax without being rushed. There might be fancier places, but we enjoyed our meal and the prices are reasonable. A good option while on Corn Island.

Clean and okay for the price . The room we stayed was 1 when we arrived it had a musty smell but with air conditioner and fan it improved. The rooms are cleaned and beds changed each day. The people who run the place are friendly. In walking distance to the bakery and Maris .

Everyone working here is wonderfully friendly and professional. The prices are better than next door, the food is great! I prefer to sit on the beach deck rather than in the restaurant or bar.
