The room was VERY clean, the water was hot and although the restaurant was a little expensive, what I ate was good. Bikes and snorkeling were available to rent and the locals...

We had a very nice and friendly stay at Big Fish! The owners/managerin have a heart of gold, they even let us take a shower after the rainy/ wetty trip from little corn, although we were not there guests anymore. The Restaurant is very tasty and the drinks either!! BIG FISH - BIG RECOMMENDATION

The staff could not be more friendly or helpful. The room we have at front of house is spacious and comfy with hot water (a luxury after a month of travelling and only cold water showers). The food is amazing with lobster and fresh fish aplenty and tastes like it is cooked with love Location wise this place is handy...

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. We had the King size bed room in the back of the guesthouse. Had to cross the kitchen to get to it and no view but AC works fine and the bed was comfy. A drawback was that free wifi was very intermittent in the room. Hot water was readily...

This was a great option for our family. Nice owners, great service. Clean and comfortable rooms. It was like staying with distant family members. We hope to stay there again if we return to Big Corn Island.

Our stay at Big Fish was everything we were hoping for and more. The staff were very friendly and helpful for any request or questions we had. The rooms were very clean, the food was delicious, and the location was prime. Great value for what it offered! I would highly recommend staying here if you're visiting the island.

We were really looking forward to our stay at Big Fish, arriving after a long journey from the UK. I'd booked a double room, with a private bathroom sometime ago and had ongoing dialogue with the owner Pansie about the arrangements. On arrival we were told that there were no rooms with a private bathroom available but we could share...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Big Fish Cafe and Guesthouse is located on the quiet, serene North End of Corn Island which is also vagrant free. You will experience fresh ocean breeze on a white sandy beach with crystal clear ocean to swim in. There are coral reefs near by for those who enjoy snorkeling and diving. Restaurant and Bar is onsite and open daily and offers a varied menu. As the island is prone to losing electricity for some short periods of time, we have a power generator onsite so that our guests don't have to be inconvenienced by the loss of electricity. Friendly and helpful property manager available for your needs. We offer bicycle and motorcycle rental and snorkel rental. There are other water activities and rentals available near by that we can assist with directing you to. Getting around is easy. Take a taxi, bus, bicycle, motorbike or just use your two feet! ... more   less
