The hotel is perfectly situated on the island. You can hang out at their beach under shade, snorkel easily to 3 ship wrecks and walk to the small village. Their restaurant has great meals and is open until 10:00 pm for that late night drink or dessert. The decor is beach-style and appropriate for the location. Big Corn Island is... More

I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nicaragua from 2006-2008 and the two of us first stayed at Paraiso on my first return trip to the country in January of 2012. It was my third trip to Big Corn Island but... More

Just stayed there for 3 nights.The place is very unique in appearance and is nicely located.Really needs some updating. We stayed in one of the triple room buildings. There was no fan and there was a small air conditioner but I could see no way you could even begin to use it as it was so noisy. And no hot... More

In December we stayed at Paraiso for almost 2weeks. We loved it. Joann and Ton were great hosts, very friendly and extremely helpful. ALL the staff, whether maintenance, restaurant, taxi drivers or front desk were so friendly and kind. We loved our stay. We ate many times in the restaurant which was great. Always fresh and very tasty. My favourite... More

We only stayed a couple of nights, but it has a good location on the "right side of the Island" and is therefore close to most restaurants and other hotels. We had a smaller room since we booked just a few days in advance, but the bigger huts looked realy cosy! Our room was very basic - but we knew... More

We only stayed here one night, but the location was really great - right on the beach. You had to walk only a few short steps to get to the water, though the beach was a little rocky. The staff are really helpful and the food at the restaurant is relatively decent for such a small island. The cabins are... More
