I visited the restaurant and it has an incomparable view of the Caribbean sea. Amazing beach, white sand, nice breeze, you can feel yourself in paradise there. The food was Ok although smaller dishes and higher prices than other restaurants in the area.

Pasta was nice and in big portions! staff was attentive and nice! Free Wi-Fi is also offered. prices wise was a bit more than the usual, but for the beachfront view that the Picnic center restaurant offers it was fair enough!

Some of the better food we had on Big Corn. It was a slow night so I dunno if the server was grouchy or what not, but the food more than made up for it. The fried fish was amazing. Lobster kabobs were also excellent.

walk down the beach a quarter mile or less from the Arenas Beach Hotel (and Restaurant) to a much better meal value, with tables really right at the beach, not way back from it. Better food, better prices, and nice quick service. We only ate one meal there, trying to eat each meal over 6 days in a different place,...

My cell phone, along with it's treasured family photos, was stolen while left in a room where we were told to leave our bags while we waited for our flight. Additionally, the room we stayed in was cell-like with a shared bathroom that was very dirty. The beach is beautiful, but I would not stay here again. I'm so disappointed...

We stayed for 6nights & enjoyed our stay thoroughly. This hotel is located on pristine beach & was pretty quiet for busy season. Our room was a decent size for a twin share, a good size bathroom with hot water {Yay}, also had cable TV & air conditioning. Everything we needed. The hotel has a restaurant & offers free cooked...

Picnic Center is on a great swimming beach and is fine if you don't need fancy rooms (Think low-end Motel 6). It's wonderful to be there on Sunday, when many local families come out to enjoy the beach. Corn Island kids are friendly and fun to watch. The restaurant is good,/average food, service is at a slow island pace. The...

We did not stay overnight there but we used it as a hub for a layover. People were very nice however there were a lot of sand fleas so be sure to pack insect repellant if saying for a while. All in all a much better place to hang out rather than the airport.

“I would recommend looking at the bungalows, if available, rather than the long house rooms. I would also recommend getting the cell number of the taxi driver so that if you want to make a tour of the island, he will come and pick you up.”
