I did not stay in Dorcey's cabin but did snorkel with him. I highly recommend him as a guide! Your safety is his top priority. We paid $20 for two hours. We are both very good swimmers and have snorkeled often. We just wanted to hire him to show us where the reef is. It's pretty much the entire Sally...

You'll need a taxi to get here from the port but the huts themselves are right on the beach. There's a shop and bar next door and a man who comes round a few times a week selling vegetables from a bike so you can use the little kitchen, and a short taxi ride away from town to just past...

We were so lucky the taxi driver took us to Yellowtail House! As we have decided to find budget accomodation - it was the best option for us! The owner - Dorsey - was very friendly and helpful to us. He's local so he knows all the info. The house normally is 25$, but for 6 nights we paid 20$...

We were excited when we stumbled upon yellowtail guesthouse but left with a very bad taste in our mouths. Upon meeting dorcy (the owner and "best snorkle guide on the island") he told us that it would be a fine day to go snorkeling.. we were hesitant to believe him but really wanted to go so we trusted his judgement...

First of all, if you are used to all-inclusive resorts or fine hotels, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an adventure and a great authentic and friendly experience, this is the place for you. The best part of the Yellowtail House is the location. It is directly across the street from the best snorkelling...

If you want to go live there, book in advance since he only has two cabins. It's located in the best view and snorkeling place on corn island. I didn't stay in the hotel but went to the snorkeling tour. I stayed at Dannet's and was looking for a snorkeling tour, and she recommended her cousin Dorsey. When the taxi...

I stayed for three weeks Feb 2012. The cabins are plenty good enough with cooking facilities and mozzie nets. Dorsey is on hand to make your stay special and to guide you around the reefs. Great place for snorkelling, lazing around and chatting to the locals. Fall asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the shore. Yellowtail can be...

Yellowtail House was our first stop when we arrived on Big Corn Island and we were pleasantly surprised! The owner, Dorsey, is a quite a character as well as an excellent snorkel guide. The guest houses are in good shape- full size bed, mosquito net, shower, refrigerator, kitchen tools, and an awesome view! Dorsey took us on a snorkel trip...

My wife and I arrived on Big Corn island planning to stay for 4 nights. After checking in at Dorsey Campbell´s Yellowtail House, we ended up staying for 16! I think some travellers head straight for Little Corn Island, but I would definitely recommend checking availability at Yellowtail House first. It is located on a beautiful spot on the north...
