“Little Corn Beach and Bungalow”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Best place on the island! Don't leave without trying the French toast :-). A couple tips if you're planning to come here and haven't been to the island before: you'll need to get a taxi from the airport on Big Corn to the ferry dock, don't worry there will plenty of them, ha! You should have something watertight for your luggage or backpack, or you'll get pressured to buy a plastic garbage bag. The "ferry" is an open panga, the crossing is rough and wet. If you're prone to seasickness, be prepared. Once at dock at Little Corn you'll be met by a staff person with a wheelbarrow for your luggage, and it's a fifteen minute walk across the island. It's muddy and rocky, bare feet not recommended! There will be guy coming by the bungalow in the morning offering snorkel trips, and it is worth it. if youre a diver, the dive center on the other side of the island is top notch. Enjoy!

Room Tip: TA asked me to rate the "Swimming pool" - pretty darn hard to beat the one twenty steps fr...

Probably every person that stays at LCBB hopes you don't read all the 5 star reviews. We really don't want to share this place.The owners are great business people and they have created the legendary "paradiso" on Litttle Corn Island. They haven't missed anything. They recommend only the best guides,(think fly fishing guide Brandon Fawcett) snorkeling trips,etc. Their staff is superb, and all Nica. Wonderful. Please read the review by Martha M for a more thorough review

My husband and I recently returned from 7 nights at LCBB and would like to return immediately. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and wanted an off the relaxing, off the beaten path experience. We found LCBB to be a quiet, beautiful slice of Caribbean paradise with impeccable service. The owners and staff are truly interested in making your stay wonderful. The cabins are charming and well maintained. They are only a few yards from the water and well shaded by palm trees. Coffee on the porch every morning and drinks in the evening were one of the most enjoyable parts of our stay. The cabins receive plenty of ocean breeze so we were not bothered by the lack of air conditioning. We also didn't find power outages to be a problem--the lack of lights, noise and electronics is part of the charm.

We opted for the dining and activities package and feel that we received special service. Without the D&A package we might have eaten at more local restaurants, but the service at LCBB can't be beat. We took advantage of everything included in the D&A package--snorkeling and fishing trips, snorkeling gear, plenty of Nicaraguan beers. They even included one load of laundry which was much appreciated by the end of the week. The D&A package is a good value if you take advantage of all that it offers. If not, food is inexpensive anywhere on the island.

Little Corn Island does not suit everyone. Visitors must know what they are getting into in order to enjoy this type of trip. If your expectations are realistic, you will find LCBB offers a wonderful, relaxing escape from our hectic world. Great service in an idyllic location makes for a memorable vacation.

Room Tip: The cabins with fans will be cooler in the evenings. All cabins have a great beach view.

We can not wait to have you come back to Little Corn Island and our little beach resort!

We are glad to hear that you found good value in our what was then known as the "D and A" package. Since you left, we have improved the value by quite a bit and did not change the price. We now call it our "RADD" (Room, Activities, Dining and Drinks) deal! We are excited to know that the next time you come to see us, you might feel even more special during your stay.

Thanks for the nice comments about our service. We are very proud of how hard our staff works to make our guests happy. We will be sure to pass your comments on to each and every one of them.

My sister and I stayed here in our 4 day visit to Little Corn. We LOVED this place!

The rooms are a little pricier than the other accommodations, however, if you can swing it, I highly recommend.

The cabanas are very charming and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful and the property was a 5 star.

The restaurant was also 5 star. The food was excellent. The piña coladas are the best I have ever had so if you go, you must get one. They also have fantastic margaritas!

The entire stay at Little Corn Beach & Bungalow was fabulous and I would definitely go back. It's a paradise!

The owners of the resort are also animal friendly and participate in rescues and providing veterinary care for the homeless dogs & cats. So if you are an animal lover, this is an extra plus for staying here.

We were really glad to have you two stay with us! Thank you for mentioning our free spay and nueter clinics.

We frequently have guests that notice the incredible difference in the animal population on LCI (healthy, happy and loved) compared to other places they have travelled. Huge credit goes to the incredible veterinarians, (Dr. Tom to be specific) from the states and Granada NI that come yearly to our island and donate their time, skills and love. If you would like to help fund the good work of these amazing folks, you can contact us through our web site. Thanks again!

I found paradise here.
After staying one night at Casa Iguana, this place was heaven. Yes, it's a little more expensive but well worth it. Being a solo traveler, you always worry. Not here. I felt at complete ease. I was able to sit on my porch or leave both doors open for the breeze while I read my book or played with Bubba.
On that note, Bubba is a cute little tabby with tons of personality. I was told all the animals on the islands were well taken care of but this isn't true. There are random vet visits to the island and no clinic. Cat food isn't even sold on the island. Bubba was hungry, very thirsty and looked very small. Please take cat food or feed him what you can!! It broke my heart to leave him. There is a big push to take a pet off the island. More needs to done to help them stay there!
Ok, back to review. The bungalows are adorable, spacious, off the ground, no bugs, with fans and mosquito netting. I never needed the the netting.
The staff was very friendly and went out of their way for me. With that said, don't be in a hurry. Island time. I wasn't thrilled about the food anywhere on the island. I found it over spiced, salted, peppered or buttered. It wasn't bad... I was just expecting better. You can definitely get some better deals if you look for them. I really just wanted to relax. And I did!
Firefly studio, Sara, is incredible! I've had many a massages but hers will always be in my mind as top notch, hands down, one of the BEST! Her yoga styles and her studio, which her fiancé built for her, are fabulous too!!
I almost hate saying too many good things as I want to keep this one all to myself!! :))

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with ANY of the rooms.

To be compared favorably with the other hotel you mentioned is quite a compliment. They do a tremendous job at their beautiful spot.

Don't worry about Bubba though :) He is just a kitten and gets fed two times each day real cat food we bring from Managua. He (and all of the other animals around LCBB, inlcuding Lola the parrot) have fresh water bowls set out daily. Bubba and all the other LCBB animal mascots get twice daily food, lots of love, regular flea, tick and worm treatment as well as the benefits of our annual free spay and nueter clinic (we provide most of these services to any island animal daily as requested).

We have had NINE dogs adopted to the US and Canada and without exception those are some lucky dogs!

Good news too, island cats are just TINY little cats. So when you return, Bubba will still seem like a kitten!

Safe travels!

It takes quite a bit of effort to get to Little Corn Island but it is definitely worth it and when you do go you must stay at LCCB. We walked all round this delightful, traffic-free island and LCCB was by far away its very best lodging set on probably its finest beach.
It is difficult to add to all the previous great reviews but we can confirm that LCCB has very comfortable and clean chalets with excellent beds and hot water showers. They are all set overlooking the sea and are very well maintained.
The food was great, especially when you consider the logistics involved of getting supplies to this fairly remote island. The drinks are very well priced and the wine list offers wine by the glass, carafe or bottle.
The staff is amazing. Every member was friendly, efficient and courteous. They were genuinely helpful and seemed to want to make sure you had a good time. Something not often observed in the Caribbean.
Most of the credit must go to Scott and Kristin, the lovely couple who run this beautiful place.
We booked the D&A package and felt that we received excellent value. The beers were always deliciously cold and the food portions large. We had absolutely no need to venture away from this corner of paradise.
Thanks to everyone at LCCB for a wonderful stay.

We stayed 4 days here at the end of February, into early March. We stayed in a master suite, Gulliver, about a 75 foot walk from high tide, in a palm and coconut grove.Very comfortable and simple accomodations. The place has a light footprint in this beautiful and fragile environment. We did the full plan, including two meals per day, and that is well worth it. Food is quite good. Wines are nice, with strong Argentine list. Fly from Managua to Big Corn Island, take a taxi from the airport to the small boat (about $2 each and then $5-10 for the boat ride). The LCBB meets you at the Little Corn dock. If you want peace, nice walks, great hammocks and rocking chairs for reading and fun conversation with the owners and other guests...go. As i tell my friends, no roads, no cars, no motorcycles, no buses, no golf carts, no golf courses. With the two meals a day deal, you are looking at under $200 per day, including drinks...pretty much all expenses paid. Enjoy.

Room Tip: We like the master suites, but look over the possibilities on the web pages.

Thank you for your generous review of LCBB. We are glad you found good value in what we now call our Room, Activities and Dining (RAD) deal. Recently we have greatly enhanced the value offered in the RAD deal and kept the price the same. Be sure to check it out for your next visit to our quiet little island.
