La Princesa is the most lovely, civilized, romantic spot you can find anywhere. Less than 10 guests. The Italian hospitality and gourmet dinners, wine and camaraderie are unmatched. Two generations who lived their prior lives in Rome own and manage it as their own home. They are so nice. The place is laid-back and beautiful. Walking distance to the best...

A friend and I stayed at this secluded hotel for six nights. The property is located on the far side of the island in a more remote area. The rooms are rustic, spotelss clean and very spacious. Each room faces the sea and each night you can sleep listening to the surf. Our bedroom door was barely 30 feet from...

We had an excellent time here. The owners were very nice and everything is a short walk. We checked out Little Corn Island for the day (awesome). We went to picnic beach which is a can't miss. We will be back some day. Thanks for everything.

I love staying here, the rooms are large and clean, and I love the shower with the water coming from the conch shell. I love the sound of the waves and the view. I was worried about staying here because I love air conditioning, but the breeze made it comfortable to sleep at night. Picnic beach is a short walk...

I agree that the Italian family owners are out of this world hospitable, and that the accommodations are clean and basic. I have to be honest, however. Princesa is basically surrounded by a "slum. " If you go here you have to be the kind of traveler who is not bothered by living it up while immediately surrounded by desparately...

This small hotel is located on a gorgeous, secluded piece of property on the southern side of Big Corn Island. It has its own private beach and is just a 10-15 minute walk to Picnic Beach, the best on the island and arguably the best in Nicaragua. The Italian family who own and operate this hotel are out of this...

Fantastic location and amazing host! We came in from Little Corn and unfortunately had only one night in La Princesa de la Isla, as we had flights out the next morning. You feel really welcome here from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay. The rooms are pretty average, but spacious and clean. The property itself is very nice,...

I cannot say enough about this hotel. Costanza and her family open their home to visitors to make this a true experience in paradise. The property - right on the ocean - is beautiful and well maintained. The rooms (rather like bungalows) are spacious, clean, and charming. Costanza serves a breakfast with many options, but, the real pleasure is the...

The place is owned by an Italian family that moved to Big Corn Island. Our bungalow was 15 meters (around 50 feet) from the sea. Although the beach is more snorkel friendly than swimmer's friendly, it would take a 10 minute walk on the beach from La Princesa to Pic Nic Beach which is the best and biggest beach on...

My spouse and I, mid 50’s professionals, are on the back end of a week’s stay. The accommodations are affordable, unpretentious and conveniently located on Big Corn Island’s breeze-caressed Woula Point. We have found our charming Italian hosts to be genuinely helpful; extending every effort to create a memorable experience for us. They have patiently answered every question, provided maps,...
