We returned to CI after 5 years and while it is still a great place to stay and our favorite on Little Corn, it appears to be trying to move upmarket especially in the food area where the cuisine has become very "international" and lost the local feeling. It is very good but you could be eating anywhere! We noticed that more guests are going to local restaurants to eat now.
Also, as the deck has been enlarged (a great improvement) the dining at big tables where you used to meet other guests has been eliminated and tables are for 2 or 4. Nice but not the friendly feel it used to have.
The staff were friendly and service was great but it is definitely less sociable than it used to be.
I rated sleep quality lower because we thought the pillows were very thin.
They have internet access on their computers but it is far more expensive than others (Delphines) in town.

Relax on its 40 acre reserve and explore its secret coves, jungle and farm.
