I won’t, and cannot explain in words the passion and love A & C have put into LP that was felt by our family and other guests. The grounds, are beautiful and rambling - frogs, crabs, turtles [ya gotta have a kid to find the turtles!] and hermit crabs are your neighbors and friends. The “house” where we relaxed, took...

We had the best time spending six nights at princesa de la isla! We felt it was a warm and family like environment with Costanza and Ale always with a smile and always so helpful with everything. The bungalow was clean and it was a great spot to relax and enjoy the calm of big corn island. If i could...

We stayed at La Princesa de la Isla for four nights. It's located on the southern tip of Brig Bay, Waula Point. It's owned by a lovely italian family who make you feel very welcome. They make delicious Italian dinners (breakfast too), so even if you don't stay here definitely book a dinner with them. The accommodations are very rustic...

La Princesa is the most lovely, civilized, romantic spot you can find anywhere. Less than 10 guests. The Italian hospitality and gourmet dinners, wine and camaraderie are unmatched. Two generations who lived their prior lives in Rome own and manage it as their own home. They are so nice. The place is laid-back and beautiful. Walking distance to the best...

Each room faces the sea and each night you can sleep listening to the surf. Our bedroom door was barely 30 feet from...

We had an excellent time here. The owners were very nice and everything is a short walk. We checked out Little Corn Island for the day (awesome). We went to picnic beach which is a can't miss. We will be back some day. Thanks for everything.

I love staying here, the rooms are large and clean, and I love the shower with the water coming from the conch shell. I love the sound of the waves and the view. I was worried about staying here because I love air conditioning, but the breeze made it comfortable to sleep at night. Picnic beach is a short walk...

I agree that the Italian family owners are out of this world hospitable, and that the accommodations are clean and basic. I have to be honest, however. Princesa is basically surrounded by a "slum. " If you go here you have to be the kind of traveler who is not bothered by living it up while immediately surrounded by desparately...

This small hotel is located on a gorgeous, secluded piece of property on the southern side of Big Corn Island. It has its own private beach and is just a 10-15 minute walk to Picnic Beach, the best on the island and arguably the best in Nicaragua. The Italian family who own and operate this hotel are out of this...

Fantastic location and amazing host! We came in from Little Corn and unfortunately had only one night in La Princesa de la Isla, as we had flights out the next morning. You feel really welcome here from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay. The rooms are pretty average, but spacious and clean. The property itself is very nice,...
