We stayed at a cheap hotel at Brig Bay and then took a taxi to Picnic Center for a few drinks. The service was a bit challenging at times, but you can't beat the experience of sitting in the shade on the edge of a beach watching locals play baseball. There seems to be a steady flow of taxis dropping...

We went to the beach and saw the restaurant and decided to order something to drink, but the lady there was so kind and polite and she told us about several options. We decided to order one of the options shw gave us. It was the best we could have ordered. It was well worth it! Loved the food, prices...

We stayed here for a week, a family of five in one room for $65/night. It's the best beach on the island and absolutely beautiful. It's right next to Las Arenas which was $240/night. It's a little worn in the rooms but the air conditioner was cold, the people friendly and very accomodating. I found the food really good but...

This hotel has perfectly reasonable rates for their clean air conditioned rooms and the location is to die for! Unfortunately the food is only okay and the drinks are totally overpriced and watered down. After several "shots" of "tequila" my travel companion realized getting a lil tipsy at this location was not possible without spending a lot of money. It's...

This hotel is pretty good. The price for a room is $35 if you want a room that shares a bathroom or $45 for a room with your own individual bathroom. The room I do not recommend to take is room# 1. This room is on the ground floor and is closer to the outside, so you will always get...

Just got back from a weeks stay at Picnic Center. We had no reservations when we arrived on the island, wanted to stay at Arenas, luckily they were full. We ended up here and so glad we did. The best location on Picnic beach. The hotel is right there as compared to the other two there that are back from...

We arrived in Corn island about a week ago. When we arrived we didn't have any place to go. Luckily one of the taxi drivers from the airport took us to this hotel. The view was absolutely breath taking. The rooms were nice and clean and they even had AC. I gave this hotel 4 stars because I felt it...

Only stayed here one night, but the rooms were clean, had AC, and most importantly the beach was gorgeous. Nice staff, good breakfast, and reasonably priced. Great find and definitely the best beach on the island!

If you want tranquility and what could be the best beach in the entire Caribbean, this is the one for you. Added to that, the prices -- compared to other similar locations -- are darned decent. We came to check it out. We ended up staying more than three weeks. No need to repeat what others say about that amazing...

“I would recommend looking at the bungalows, if available, rather than the long house rooms. I would also recommend getting the cell number of the taxi driver so that if you want to make a tour of the island, he will come and pick you up.”
