Spent a week at Delfines and dived with their shop. The room was cleaned every day and were totally secure. (We never worried about electronics we left in the room whilst diving, for example).

The aircon kept the room cool when we came back at night and the shower always worked. We had a TV, but didn't watch it.

Since cash is needed everywhere on Little Corn, it's nice to be able to play with plastic here (and also at their restaurant and dive shop). It allowed us to conserve cash for other things--and the Cordoba/Dollar exchange rate was better on the credit card. We got nearly 25:1 on the credit card transaction and 22:1 is standard in the island.

Also, the manager of the dive shop is very responsive to emails and will reserve a room for you remotely. We reserved an entire week--over Christmas--and he didn't even require a deposit.

This was a lovely--and incredibly economical vacation.

We were right near all the good restaurants and it was nice and quiet and safe. If we go again, this is the place we will stay. We saw the others and this was the best!

Stayed here for 10 days while diving with Dolphin Dive. The rooms are very clean and pretty spacious, A/C (much needed) worked well when electricity was on and you cannot beat the hotel/diving package with Dolphin Dive.

The location of the hotel is great - a short walk from all the restaurants on the main walkway and steps from the dive shop. Staff is very friendly and the room was cleaned perfectly every day.

Overall - highly recommend if you need a nice place to stay

Spent 4 days in Little Corn staying at Los Delfines. It was very clean and very comfortable. It is the only hotel I saw with AC although I was told there was one more somewhere on the island. Everything worked and the room was cleaned every day. It had a great location in the village. The staff was friendly and they have the only monkey on the island that doesn't bite. Can't beat that for $50 a nite.
I dove every day with Dolphin Dive. The offered a very good dive/hotel package since the shop is basically part of the hotel. All in all it was a completely delightful experience great hotel, great dive and hotel staff, good cafe, and a stunning island. I'd go back and do it exactly the same tomorrow.

I did not stay at Los Delfines but at Carlitos way which owner is cousin with the owner of Los Delfines. But I did have some dinners at Los Delfines and I can say that the food is great, tasty, big plates and good environment in front of the beach where you can see the landscape, la playa and the nice tourquoise water.

Stayed at the Hotel Los Delfines in June 2011 for several nights. We got a deal of $40 (instead of $50) a night because we were also diving with them. The hotel was excellent for the standard of hotels in Nicaragua. It had AC (awesome), was bug free inside the rooms, was clean, and had running plumbing. It also had a night watchmen so security was never an issue.

My wife and I are social travelers; if I wanted to be alone I would sit in my backyard and read a book. We enjoy meeting new people while on vacation and hanging out. Hotel Los Delfines worked out perfectly because it is on the western side of the island where there is more of a "scene" centered around Tranquilo's. Zombies come out at night on the east, south, and north sides of the island.

After our week in LCI...unless on an extreme budget, I would probably stay here again and not in on of the more expensive bungalow places on the east (which we originally did). I would stay here, save money, and then during the day go to the east side of the island and enjoy the beaches, pay twice as much for beer and food, and then return to the west side of the island at night fall.

Good times, would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the first room on the right.
