Only stayed here one night, but the rooms were clean, had AC, and most importantly the beach was gorgeous. Nice staff, good breakfast, and reasonably priced. Great find and definitely the best beach on the island!

If you want tranquility and what could be the best beach in the entire Caribbean, this is the one for you. Added to that, the prices -- compared to other similar locations -- are darned decent. We came to check it out. We ended up staying more than three weeks. No need to repeat what others say about that amazing...

Three star due to location. The rooms are very basic, but clean. The staff was friendly - enough. We stayed due to the beach. Calm water, perfect for swimming or floating. The lounge chairs on the beach were cumbersome beasts that weighed an excess of fifty pounds, very hard to move, and ridiculously uncomfortable to lay on. We stayed after...

Prices compared to other places were great! Location was best on the island! Service was great from the waitress from Leon (they should giver her a raise). If you're reading this thinking, where should we stay? Reserve one night here and look for other places. You won't want to leave. Here on a Saturday Sunday have the taxi take you...

This property is on the best swimming beach of the island and is close to other properties that have more amenities. I would consider this a one plus star hotel, no frills. The room is adequate, clean, and we felt safe. The staff is kind, and the food is some of the best on the island yet limited to what...

Great place and location on the island! The prices of the food are a bit high compared to other places you can go to eat. What was nice was being able to open a tab and pay at the end of our stay all at once instead of paying by each meal. I would definitely recommend any of the dishes...

I have stayed here twice in the last couple of years. The hotel itself is pretty basic but with everything one would need for a comfortable stay, I.E. Aircon, TV, Hot water, GOOD restaurant (locals eat here), decent beds, friendly staff etc etc etc... Definitely not a 5 star, or even a 2 star but hey, this is Big Corn...

Picnic Center is located on one of the best beaches of the island. The sand is crystalline white and the water Caribbean blue! The accommodations are adequate for the price in the longhouse we stayed in. They also have two story bungalows which offer more privacy and a view of the beach. They offer a varied menu and the food...
