“The best place ever”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

For 6 weeks I was in Nicaragua. For the second time I was in Hotel Paraiso. And again it was the best place ever. The staff is very friendly and the Dutch owners are lovely people and very helpfull in anyway they can. The room is very lovely and clean. I felt right at home. The food in the restaurant is just the best food on the Island. I know now allready that I will come back next year

Room Tip: The cabana's have the best view to the ocean

My family of 4 stayed here for 1 night before returning to the mainland. The bungalow was clean, quiet and cozy. The ACworked well. The Dutch owner was friendly and helpful. The food was reasonable and good. The staff were helpful but not overly enthusiastic. I would stay here again if I had to stay on Big Corn.

I went there with some friends and we had to wait almost 20 min. to be attended for a waitress with an attitude like we were bothering. When we already ordered, we had to wait 45min additionally for our meal.

They treated us rudely like we were begging or something like that. The manager didn't seem interested we were leaving with a big a bad taste of location.

Another thing is you have to share the restaurant with dogs sitting next to you.

I spent 4 nights at the Paraiso in December and had a great experience. The restaurant serves great food and the continental breakfast with freshly squeezed watermelon juice and coconut bread is delicious. The morning staff were great having my coffee on the table before I had to ask. The rooms are basic but kept very clean. The hotel is walking distance to the town and their cab driver will take you on a wonderful tour of the island or anywhere you want to go. The owners are very friendly, full of knowledge about the island and what to do and see. Would definitely recommend a visit to Big Corn Island and a stay at the Paraiso Beach Hotel!

Great place to stay on big Corn. The owners are a fabulous Dutch couple, that took care of everything we needed. Hot stone massages are a must!
Grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the location is good, close enough to walk to many great beaches and restaurants.

My wife and I went to Big Corn to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and chose Club Paraiso as our hotel based on reviews on sites such as this. We were not at all disappointed, but do offer one word of caution -- no hot water. Tom and Mary are the owners and do a lovely job. They are very friendly, full of knowledge about the island and are willing to share what they know with you any time. The Buccaneer restaurant on property is quite good though after several days of a limited menu the food can get repetitive; yet the food consistently was high quality and good portion size and at a very fair price. We had a room with no TV at our request so we could "unplug" from it all. The room was spartan, but comfortable with a ceiling fan and A/C. The hot water only was an issue because we happened to be on the island when it was unseasonably cool and rainy, resulting in cooler water temperatures. I'm told that in the summer or when the sun actually behaves the cool water from the shower is quite refreshing. So hot water would be the only draw back unless you want to spend approx $30-40 per night more to stay at a competing hotel (we could not justify the expense so we just showered quick). We recommend having a hot stone massage by Mary. Nadeska, the office administrator, is delightful and willing to help out however and wherever necessary. All the rest of the staff are very sweet and we miss them dearly already. Would definitely stay there again (in the hotter months)!!

When resWhen looking for an interesting place to get married without fuss, we found Paraiso on Corn Island. I had visited Corn Island briefly in 1973 as a teenager. No resorts, no cars, no road in those days. The wedding ceremony took place on the beach, no stress, very relaxed, simply perfect. In total we stayed a week at Paraiso. We had a nice cabana, enjoyed the meals at the restaurant, lounged in the beach chairs, watching the waves, the coconuts and the world go by. Friendly staff and very helpful owners. The place is well organized. Don't forget to ask the owner, Ton, to tell some stories of his life on the island.
