I had the pleasure of staying a Big Fish in Corn Island. I can honestly testify this was a great place to stay. Small B&B with big hospitality. The owner and staff were amazing, helpful and really honest. I was really impressed how they were committed to make my stay a good experience. They really understand tourists. The cleanness of...

We didn't stay in the guesthouse although it seemed very nice. However we did eat at the cafe. Twice for dinner and twice for breakfast. The curry chicken dish is awesome! Rosa the server and cook does a great job! Breakfast is great too. Excellent pancakes and wonderful bacon! Again the server / cook (Dina) does a great job!

We spent 4 nights here in a triple room. Very comfortable with air conditioning and private bathroom. Towels and linens were changed twice during our stay and they supplied us with beach towels daily at no extra cost. Breakfast was excellent and we had dinner twice which was very good. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the atmosphere was...

Quite a surprise really, this Big Fish cafe. I stayed there a couple of days. The staff was really nice and super helpful, the place is clean, the food was very, very good. It is a house, really, and it gives it a welcomed homey atmosphere. Right in front of a very nice beach. REally great for the price.

We killed a few lobster at Big Fish. The food was delicious and reasonably priced -- much cheaper than at some other places -- so we continually returned to the same place. No matter how it was prepared, the food was great. Highly recommended as a restaurant but didn't stay at the hotel.

We stayed at Big Fish Cafe already the second time and we love it there. The rooms are clean and comfy. Air conditioning is a big plus. Even when there is no electricity on the island, which happens sometimes, Big Fish Cafe has its own generator. The food is always delicious and fresh. The Staff are so friendly and helpful....

I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this place was. The food was super tasty and they had a very friendly staff. The air conditioning worked great and there is a small safe in the room. They were very nice to call a taxi for us early for the airport. The shower is on the colder side but in the...
