“Great Place & Getting Even Better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2007

Cesar Beach is now under new management and is called Arenis Beach Resort. If you like the beach - this is the Place!
Good food, relaxing, good accomodations and the new owner is planning on adding cabins and a pool. People were very accomodating, very laid back place to relax.

We had the good fortune of getting an honest cab driver who took us to a legitimately good hotel, Cesar Beach. Prior to coming to Corn Island, I had not heard of this place. I don't think they advertise much.
Anyway, the people who work here are really nice and super laid back. \
We stayed in one of the cabins. In retrospect, I would recommend one of the inward ones (i.e. not adjacent to the road) Otherwise, you do feel a little exposed especially when going to the bathroom with no curtains on the windows!! The cabin had 5 beds in it, two doubles and three twins and a large bathroom with luke warm water.
This hotel is in the best location on the island, a super pretty beach right in front and not a lot of people milling around, like on the rest of the island. As you either know or will find out, there is a quite a drug problem here and when walking around the island we saw some real shady characters and quite a few drug dealers hanging out on the side of the road. However, none of this was going on around Cesare Beach.
The food is awesome! Do not miss the pizza! It is made from scratch and is incredible!!!
If you don't have much luggage, you can actually walk here from the airport but then again a cab should only cost $2 or $3.
Our cabin was $50/night in May 2006.
