This is the place..the beach is pure white sand, the water clear blue. The staff unbelievably accommodating. The rooms have great AC and there is internet that worked 99% of the time on the entire property including the beach. We were looking for a quiet getaway which Arenas provided perfectly. We spent 12 days which due the lack of stuff to do on the island would be too long by about 8 days for most but exactly what we needed. We went fishing with Captain Charles who the hotel recommended 3 days and caught about 450 lbs of fish ranging from Barracuda to king fish to yellow tail and some exotics. We snorkeled around some sunken ships which was not world class but made for a couple days entertainment. The best part for me was renting a golf cart from the guys next to the hotel..we like to mix with the locals when we travel so each day we made several runs around the island waving and good day's to the locals which turned into many new friendships. If you are looking to party then I would skip Corn Island it is not that kind of place if you need big bars or clubs..definitely will go back and will stay at Arena's the staff became like family and we hope many of them will come visit us some day at our home.

Room Tip: If you have the budget go with the large rooms in the main building..we were in a bungalow but heard the other rooms were much nicer with refrig/living room

We had a great stay at Big Corn Island and this hotel was one of the reasons. The staff was helpful, accommodated us by studying what we where doing, and then opening the beach bar for us, bringing us food on the beach etc.
Food was great, both lunch and dinner (we took all our meals on Big Corn Island here), although it took some time to prepare. But we learned this the first day, so we ordered our food in good time around an hour before and asked "can you have it ready by 19.00?", and then the food was delivered spot on time.
The beach is great, so is their beach gear/chairs/tents etc., the rooms in the bungalows might be a bit on the small side, but then you have these great hammocks and rolling chairs outside, so why bother.
Next door you can rent a golf cart and take on a drive on the island - that is HIGHLY recommendable as a 2 hour rental give you good time to look around a bit. We actually rented 2 days in a row :-)

Room Tip: I didn't see the rooms in the actual hotel - but my guess is that you should go for the bungalows, as they are very nice.

I ate here, and the food was amazing, and I enjoyed the beach, while they brought me pina coladas! My pictures from here is what I show everyone. Island life doesn't get any better then this! The water was crystal clear and smooth and warm. Bring off lotion though, there are sand flies, but they leave you alone with the off lotion. Has to be the lotion, the spray does nothing.

My room was below average. Was located on the nicest beach on Corn Island. The staff was friendly and bilingual. Outstanding restaurant! Simply delicious. Located next door is a golf cart rental / bike rental place. The island is very poor, honestly not anything to do other than the beach. Was not crowded at all. Was there for three nights. One night would have been enough for me....not one to sit on a beach all day. Would recommend the hotel to travelers to the island.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center.

Corn Island is beautiful, and was the best choice when deciding to go there for our honeymoon. It can be relaxing and romantic but also fun. We rented a bike and went around the island and got to know different beaches and local restaurants with great food, specially seafood. The hotel is excellent very confortable and the bugalows are great, the way they are decorated is nice. We also tried to do snorkeling and fishing but there werent too many instructions so we werent able to really enjoy it. Overall we had an excellent experience, beatiful beach,excellent food, hotel was excellent. Would definetly recommend it. Great place in Nicaragua
