I will preface this review by saying that Scott and Kristine were sold out during our trip down and we stayed at another property (you will probably read my review of that property if you are researching LCI) However, we had several meals at LCBB and toured the rooms and property with Scott, so I feel qualified in lending my opinion.

As I stated in my other review, LCI is not for everybody, nor is every property. If you know what you are getting into, you are much more apt to enjoy your stay, hence my often candid reviews.

Scott and Kristine do an incredible job running LCBB. Their almost fanatical attention to detail and customer service is evident everywhere. You will be severely tested to find another propety, anywhere that have on premise owners as dedicated to the comfort of their guests as these two.

The rooms are beatiful by any standards. They have also done a good job building their property while maintaining as much of the natural surroundings as possible. Your commute from your bungalow, past the hammocks and trees to a beautiful beach is about 20 seconds. Be sure to say hey to Lola, the resident parrot holding court in her tree. My Son and Georgie, the property pooches will be close by.

We enjoyed incredible breakfast, lunch and dinners at LCBB. Their 4 course dinner for $15 is not to be missed, and changes with what is fresh. Even if you stay elsewhere, be sure to drop by for a meal or two. Their famous porker sandwhich, signature Margarita, and toasted coconut/chocolate chip cookie lunch is worth the trip alone. You can thank me later.

Simon, behind the bar is a master at making you feel right at home and he has a series of home made cocktails that will end (or in case of the Canadian Bloody Mary) begin your day nicely.

We did not have a bad meal or drink there. They are not the cheapest place on the island, but the value for your money is incredible. I sincerely hope they have room for us on our next stay, but if they do not, I know there is a porker and marg in my future!

First let me say that LIttle Corn is not Miami or Cancun - it is secluded,and relatively undeveloped , i.e. no cars or roads (probably not for long - it's beautiful) Scot and Kristine - do a great job with their hotel..unlike other places the owners are actually there. This is not the least expensive place on the island - but it is the best - Little Corn Beach & Bungalow (LCBB) -is about an easy 10 minute walk from the dock -(they have someone with a wheelbarrow get your luggage). It is on the seculded and windy side of the island (where you want to be)- their food is good and they take their jobs as hosts very seriously. They also try to give back to the Island - they have developed a nutering program for the dogs on the island, a book program for the kids on the island and they pay to have all of the garbage that winds up on their side of the island to be picked up and shipped to the mainland. We stayed in the Gulliver which was perfect for a family of 4.

Room Tip: Gulliver is good

We stayed for a week with our two young kids (ages 5 and 10) and another family with similarly-aged kids. We had an absolutely wonderful time on LCI in general and at LCBB in particular. The location was perfect for us--far enough away from town, but within an easy 10 minute walk. The beachside location was ideal for the kids and the hammocks were ideal for us! The staff was warm and lovely--Kristine and Scott were friendly and very accomodating and Simon and Gladys provided the extra "homey" feel, giving us an immediate sense of familiarity and comfort with the island. We loved everything about LCI, but having such a place to return to home to each day was of great importance to us and really "made" the experience.

We stayed with LCBB and could not have asked for more. The owners were easy to deal with via email. They were off island while we were there but the local staff was outstanding!! Miss Gladys (the chef) and general ruler of the land, was so nice and fun. She made every meal and event and super yummy. Her lobster was out of this world and her chocolate/peanut butter cake with coconut ice cream with toasted coconut on top was to die for. She has a huge heart and it shows in her love of people. A big thanks to her for making our trip so superb. Simone was also a great help, especially when I kept losing things. His famous Margaritas might have had something to do with that! Both are just gems, as is the entire staff. The housekeepers became friends and fun to laugh with in the mornings! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy( not just a mattress on a slab)! The only...and I mean the only thing I might complain about was the coffee. But I will be honest...we found the coffee icky in all of Nicaragua so maybe it is just the way it is! But that is the ONLY drawback on this place.
It felt very secure with a night watchman who actually paid attention when we stumbled in one late night. The location was perfect in the windy side of the island. No A/C required. The generator ran approx 14 hours a day and it was enough. The roar of the ocean lulled you to sleep each night and was a joy to awaken to. The Best thing about LCBB was the staff!

We stayed at Little Corn Beach and Bungalow for 5 nights in February and wish we had stayed longer. The Island is an absolute gem and so is Little Corn B&B. The bungalows are charming, cute, comfortable, clean and right on the beach. The grounds are immaculate and lovely; there are hammocks, chairs and tables among lush lush foliage and palm trees. Everyone who works here is extremely friendly and they do a fantastic job; there is great attention to detail. We ate many of our meals at their restaurant and had some of the best food of our trip here. One of the best Margaritas I have had anywhere! We were very well taken care of and LCB&B and the island are conducive to a relaxing, tranquil, ideal vacation. Scot and Kristine do a wonderful job!

i love cute little bungalows on the beach and that's exactly what lcbb offers. the beds were extremely comfortable - which was a pleasant surprise. the food was good and i have no complaints about my six nights there. highly recommended. they also seem to be one of the few (only?) places to offer free wi-fi on the island.
