Really, really great hotel in wonderful location on the best beach on the island. When we checked in we were a bit disappointed not to be allocated a cabin room .... until we saw our huge room in the main part of the hotel with a large balcony, which was very quiet. This is to be recommended. Ok, so the...

The bungalows are small but comfortable and obviously in various stages of updating. The hammocks on the porches are the best aspect. The bathroom was very small as was the only mirror and no closet. The shower was adequate but given the message to conserve water it took 5 minutes for our shower to provide hot water. They have a...

The perfect place to relax and get away from it all on idyllic island in the Caribbean. We were there not long after hurricane Otto and the weather was still pretty changeable but on the beach under a hut you don't care how hard it rains when you can just sit and watch. The restaurant had a good choice of...

To start on the outside it does have all you would want, clean rooms (with thin walls) great location, hot water (after 5 min of cold), and a decent overpriced restaurant. But what it lacks is friendlier forward service. Just about everything you need, (beach towel, baggage service,drinks on the beach) you must ask for everything. Sadly they don't offer...

Arenas Beach Hotel is across from a perfect beach and if you time your visit to the beach right, you can grab one of the lounge chairs with an umbrella, but when the hotel is full, there are not enough chairs and umbrellas set up to accommodate all guests. The hotel's restaurant has a limited menu that doesn't vary or...

We arrived at this beautiful hotel, facing the beach, at 8am in the morning and were, initially very impressed. Unfortunately our experience and that of the others also staying with us, steadily went downhill.

My husband and I were slated to stay on Little Corn Island for 8 days to start our 3 week Nicaraguan honeymoon. Due to weather, the commercial panga (ferry) was not running.
