The main building looks a little dated from the outside but inside is great. Our place had beautiful floors, a nice desk, spacious bathroom, giant armoire for clothes, oversized rain head in the shower, fan and AC, plus a big deck with a picnic table. Sorry, forgot to take a photo of the room itself. Gianni is a lovely man...

Rooms were large and mosquito nets were secure. Location was good. Not very well enclosed room, overpriced for what you get. Rooms weren't cleaned. Bed was not the most comfortable. Bicycle rentals were in poor condition.

We had stayed at a different hotel on our way to Little Corn, and it had left us with a not great impression of Big corn. A friend recommended Bella vista and we were lucky enough to get a room on our way back to Managua - it completely changed our view of the island! The owners are a wonderful...

The best things about this place: the husband-wife owners, wonderful Italians who bend over backwards to help you, make you feel comfortable, and feed you authentic, delicious Italian home cooking (lasagne was out of this world & breakfast is simple and yummy). This spot is set on the edge of the best stretch of beach on BC, with sitting areas...

The Bellavista is under new ownership: the owner is fantastic, very engaging and helpful. The rooms are rustic yet extremely clean, comfortable and relaxing. The location is right on a beach and a short walk from town. There is a beautiful swamp within view of some of the rooms, the sounds of the frogs and the crashing surf are amazing....

We loved this place. Danny was a great host with much attention to detail. Was very honest about where the best places to eat were. Had a good selection of wine and beer for sale. Right across the street from a beach. Very clean. Highly recommend.

Gianni has only owned the hotel for one year and he will do his utmost to make sure your visit is enjoyable. The beach is narrow and rocky- great for swimming and snorkeling the reefs but not so great for laying out but you could! Our room was the smallest in the hotel but truly oceanfront so you can listen...

We stayed here for our stopover and just walked in from the panga pier. The room and the bathroom were the nicest we had in our four week stay in Nicaragua, the breakfast was good and to go to the beach, you only have to cross a small road and can jump right in... That said, 40$ for a nice...

We stayed at hotel bellavista for one night before our flight out from the Corn Islands. The room was spacious, air conditioned, well-furnished, and clean. My boyfriend was feeling sick the next morning but we had a late afternoon flight. The owners were very sweet letting us do late check out so he could stay in bed. We highly recommend...
