This was our second visit to Little Corn but our first to Sunshine. Everything was fabulous! From the proximity to the Town, dock, bars and restaurants to the amazing staff Zara, Phil and everyone else who's happy faces you saw at breakfast (try the pancakes, they're awesome) every morning. The rooms are spacious, very clean and nicely air-conditioned. It felt...

Zara and Phil made this experience an absolute blast! We had so much fun staying at Sunshine. The location is great, close to the beach and the "downtown", breakfast is good and the rooms are clean. Definitely recommend staying here!

We stayed here for 3 days and 3 nights and had absolutely the best experience ever. Zara and Phill treated us like family from the moment we checked in. The hotel was very clean and so cozy. We hung out upstairs in the bar/game area a lot and loved chatting and playing games with other guests. The environment was so...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for about 5 nights. Rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. The hotel is very conveniently located close to the main restaurants, ferry and dive shops. The upstairs area was a cool place to enjoy a morning coffee, included breakfast and socialize with other guests. They also have a couple of pool tables and a...

Stayed here a few years ago and it wasn't near as good as it is now. Run by a few people that went out of their way to make sure we had a pretty amazing breakfast and stay. Try the pancakes, and the bacon here! Also, find yourself a hammock and relax with a Tonya.... they also have a few...

My wife and I visited Little Corn Island and had an incredible time! We stayed at the very comfortable Sunshine Hotel. Lisa and Paul were celebrating a year and a half of managing the bright yellow property. They are very able and ever smiling. We had a great time getting to know them and even playing guitar with Paul. While...

We had a great few days at Sunshine Hotel. Basic but comfortable accommodations, and delicious breakfasts. The hotel is on the main thoroughfare through the island - to the left of the main dock guests arrive on. It was a good hub for exploring Little Corn. Management was kind and helpful. Recommended.

Full disclosure-- The owner of Sunshine Hotel is a friend, but one made over the years---and many, many visits to Little Corn Island, including stays (with reviews) at lodgings owned by his competitors. My review title refers to the geographic location of the Sunshine Hotel....it is on the west side, or "town" side, of Little Corn Island. The vast majority...

Perfect location, close to the main strip/ pier. This island really is a little paradise! Room was clean, with a A/C unit (which didn't really work well) and a fan- the fan was adequate at night but the room heated up quickly once the generators went off at 6 am (the whole island is powered by a generator which turns...
