Great spot to grab a coffee, smoothie or sandwich while you wait for your ferry. We ordered the chicken salad sandwich, two lattes and a smoothie made with milk and all were fantastic. They also sell homemade pre-packaged cookies, peanut butter, and jams.
Backpacking location is best for a base camp to see the island. Loved the service from Sergio and the crew. Amazing breakfast and coffee. Tabasco the dog is such an amazing spirit and gentle animal. Hes such a smart dog that hes been trained to have proper attitude and actions. I love the location, staff, food, dog, rooms and service from this hotel. Make this a base camp for your island adventure.
There are many nice places in Ometepe to stay, but if you are going to stay in Moyogalpa, The Corner House is definitely the best hotel. Moyogalpa is a convenient place because is where you will arrive with the ferry. This hotel is very clean, comfortable and the restaurant is excellent, you have to try their breakfasts!!! The staff is so nice. Sergio is really friendly and helpful. We spent there 2 nights. Then we went to the other side of the island for one night with a motorbike and they kept our luggage there so we didn't have to drive with all our stuff.
Clean, spacious rooms. Water bottles and glasses provided in the rooms, as well as ear plugs as it can get a little noisy on the street. I believe our private room was around $35 USD per night. You can find cheaper for sure, but it is worth the price as it includes a delicious breakfast and great coffee each morning. Not to mention friendly, helpful staff. Cool little open air deck outside the rooms with a view of the volcano. We loved it here.
I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are lovely, very clean with private bathroom. There are only four rooms, so very small. Typically breakfast is included, but I arrived in a Saturday and they are closed on Sunday, instead or the usual $25 for a private room they charged $20 (since I wouldn't be getting breakfast). There is no A/C so it can be quite hot. The room had a large window that could be opened that allowed for a bit of a breeze. There is a disco just down the street that had music pumping until after I went to sleep. I had ear plugs so it didn't really bother me, but it may some people. I did have breakfast at the restaurant on Monday morning and it was delicious!
We arrived at the Cornerhouse mid week and were welcomed by Sergio and the staff. We sat down to a delicious sandwich and coffee and then were shown to our room on the second level above the Main Street (all rooms are on the second level above the Main Street). I didn't expect Ometepe to be as busy as it was, and when we went downstairs to rent a couple motorcycles we found there were none in sight. However, within minutes Sergio introduced us to the motorcycle rental shop next door and the lady there (Alicia) and we had our motorcycles! I found the Cornerhouse to be an excellent base to explore the island. At night it can be a bit noisy (even mid week), but the convenience of being located a couple blocks from the ferry and close to all the restaurants/stores on the island made up for it. Plus, the staff are amazing, the rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast is excellent. If you are a very light sleeper I wouldn't take a chance here, but if you are like most people this place was perfect for Ometepe. Oh, and if you like security this place had security on the premises overnight as well!…
This was one of my favourite parts of our backpacking trip around Nicaragua. It was so cute, cozy and romantic. Beautiful views, very clean, unlike anything else we found. The owners are amazing they went out of their was to get to know us during our 3 night stay and helped us find things to do. The food and drinks were phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this place!!!
The individual rooms, the en suites and the shared space at the Cornerhouse are beautifully presented. The bed is by far the most comfortable I've stayed on while travelling for the last three months, which was incredible! The breakfasts are huge and delicious too..but one of the reasons we stayed here was because they advertised as being gluten free friendly. As an FYI, this means that they were happy to do the omelette on the menu without bread, rather than have any alternative 'gluten free options' available. We sadly only stayed here for one night as there were festivals in the main street and it was a little noisy at night, but other than that, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for the price, the convenient location and the great rooms!
After reading the other reviews I feel pretty much fooled: Unfortunitely we paid for the room $ 35 and having NO FREE breakfast because next day was sunday when the restaurant is closed. The room was sooooooo hot! Even with the window open. Sadly got the room in the middle (no windows on two sides). We should know before (was our mistake): because it was saturday there was superloud music until 2 am from the bar next to it. We had to leave our windows open for a breeze (van isn't working well) so it was even more loud. The room itself is supernice, comfy and clean. Liked the interior. If you go make sure its a weekday and the coffee is open... Otherwise no sleep and no free breakfast.
The place is super clean and central. They have a great lounging area to relax and they had absolutely amazing eggs benedict. It was nice to get an american style brunch after I hadn't ate one in so long. If you go there I definitely recommend the strawberry banana smoothie.
