“Fantastic Hospitality”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

We have been trying to make it to Corn Island for 4 years and I was determined to make it this year. I looked into hotels on the island and picked La Princesa becuase it had good reviews and was not outrageously priced. I had to email back and forth with Constanza (the owner) a few times becuase the amount of people that were going with us changed a few times. She was very accomadating. I also let them know that I was a vegan and asked if the could prepare food for me and she assured me that they could.

When we arrived there was a person at the airport waiting for us as promised. The hotel is a small three room place at the edge of the water. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival and given some info about the island and how things worked around the hotel. The room were large for Nicaragua standards and had a large bathroom. They were clean and nicely decorated. We were the only ones at the hotel so it was very nice to have the place to ourselves.

They have a restaurant onsite and when I asked about vegan food they told me that they had been collecting veggies for me for the past week to insure that they could make food for me. Allesandro (owner) did the cooking and our meals were great! There was pasta to start, salad, entree and a dessert. I had 3 teenage meat eaters with me and they loved the food too. We ate there every morning and night. They even recommended other places for us to eat on the island.

They were very helpful with everything. They talked to the scuba shop for me, called taxis when we needed one and let us play our music on their speakers as loud as we wanted.

Constanza and Allesandro are all about making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They make you feel like you are at home with someone doing the cooking and cleaning for you. We really appreciate their warmth and hospitality. We recommend La Princesa de la Isla to anyone that wants an enjoyable stay on Corn Island.

My wife and I traveled to Big Corn Island in Nov/Dec 2011 and stayed for five nights at La Princesa de la Isla. The room we stayed in was spacious, the beds had mosquito nets and everything was clean and tidy.

The owners are a lovely Italian family who cook some of the best food I have eaten anywhere in the world. Alessandro and Costanza prepared some amazing lobster, shrimp and fish dishes and prepare pasta which is just perfectly "al dente". They are extremely friendly and we enjoyed spending time chatting and sampling Nicaraguan rum. As other reviewers have stated, they also make fantastic coffee (and a mean caipirinha)!

If you're heading to the Corn Islands, I would thoroughly recommend staying at La Princesa de la Isla.

Unfortunately we only spent 1 night there but enjoyed our time there, mostly the delicious food and the very open hearted hosts. You feel like home immediately.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it! The place is run by a lovely Italian couple who serve the BEST italian food and cappuccino.

The resort is also set on a fine stretch of beach where you have plenty of opportunity to just relax.... Highly recommendable and really the best to stay on the island!

This is by far and away the best place to stay on Big Corn Island. Run by a lovely Italian family, the beautiful three room hotel is beautiful and spending time in the hammocks on their stunning ocean front property and in their common areas is peaceful and makes you wish you had days to spend there. The food is also excellent. I will definitely be back and recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Corn Island.

We stayed at La Princesa de la Isla for several days in February/March and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and unique. The views of the Ocean are wonderful; we fell asleep to the sound of surf every night. The owners are very friendly, helpful and accomodating. We really enjoyed getting to know them. The restaurant has fantastic dinners - make reservations earlier in the day. It is a very tranquil, peaceful place today. It is about a 20 minute walk down the beach to the "down town" area. You can also take a short and cheap cab.
