Owners are very friendly. This place is exactly as it appears on their web page. The city is loud in the mornings so its hard to sleep in, but the island is so beautiful you should be awake exploring it!

A wonderful start to the island experience. A short step off the ferry into Moyogalpa, no need to trouble with a taxi if you're travelling light. Gary showed us to a wonderful room, with open windows to the street (which we left open the night long, no trouble with mosquitos). Lots of light, a nice breeze, still cool on a hot day. Wonderful, comfortable bed – clean bathroom. Nice to be awoken by the sounds of a small town coming alive in the AM, and then to wander downstairs for an outstanding breakfast, complete with fresh, wholegrain bread. Yes, this is the place to begin on Ometepe. Great coffee and Wifi too.

We stayed for 3 nights in March! What an awesome find. By far the best service, food and coffee on Ometepe. The owners are lovely, friendly and very helpful. The food is outstanding - wonderful eggs Benny with fresh basil and roasted tomatoes, awesome potatoes and fresh homemade baked goods! The rooms are simple, elegant and clean. We couldn't have found a better place for twice the price! Especially since breakfast is included with the room! Definitely recommended.

On every obscure island, there's a hotel near the port where the food's great, the owner's as charming as he/she is busy, and any adventure can be organized and provisioned. Gary and Laura run that place, and with just four simple, good-value rooms, guests get lots of their attention. They're good-humored, graceful and enthusiastic. Don't miss the Eggs Benedict, coffee, or pineapple smoothy.

This is one of those places you are always looking for when travelling. A very relaxed place with great food. For instance the beef salad with everything fresh is very good. Also many home made smoothies and lovely cakes and cookies. Don't move out of Moyogalpa before you've had a good BF or lunch at this spot. Almost forget to tell the owner is very friendly as well!

The Cornerhouse in moyogalpa has a great price quality ratio! The rooms were by far the nicest we encountered during our 5 week travel (budget of max 50 a doubleroom): clean, spacious, bright and well maintained. From the common área you will Have a great view on vulcano concepcion!
The Cornerhouse restaurant has amazing food: passionfruit smoothies, delicious scones and the best eggs. Don't miss out on a perfect carrotcake with freshly brewed coffee.
Last but not least: gary, Laura and the rest of their team make your stay just perfect!
The atmosphere in here is very nice and welcoming and we would Love to come back to this place anytime.
