ESPECTACULAR beach, definitely the best in great corn, cold coconut water is a HIT (and always available), accommodations are ok, -not to stay more than 4 days- Bar and Restaurant staff are friendly. Food its O.K, not the best in the island at all, a little overpriced. -BEST BEACH @ Great Corn Island

One of the common mistakes that I see each year when I visit Corn Island, is that the North Americans and Europeans order something from the menu that they would expect at home, then complain when it doesn't match their New York or Paris taste buds; try the local fare!

Stayed at the hotel for a few days and ate most of the meals there, nice breakfast items, tasty lunch and dinner choices. Tasty but very very expensive cocktails, friendly service

Visited Arenas Restaurant each evening we were on Big Corn to take in the gorgeous sunsets, which were made even more enjoyable by the friendly staff, cold drinks and delicious food.

The food wasn't as amazing as the beach. We had breakfast. Eggs were way under cooked,portions were small. However the restaurant was very clean and inviting. Their beach across the street is a perfect place to chill out and Take a nap in a hammock.

I love the way you can order lunch on the beach! We ordered fried fish and another fish dish and they were both excellent. They were also large portions. My husband helped consuming my food.
