Wonderful, remote, beautiful, experience. Yemaya was worth the long trip!
Avaliou em 9 de Março de 2020
Book this trip! My husband was not very happy I was dragging him along to this remote very hard to get to island and even he said the moment we got to Yemaya "Wow this is amazing and totally worth it!" I did a TON of trip advisor research on Yemaya before I booked our ticktets for 3 flights and a boat. Most of the reviews were good and then you'd read the bad ones. I have to say after staying at Yemaya for 5 nights last month that it was a wonderful experience. The beach Yemaya is on is the most beautiful on the island. It was stunning with wild palm tree jungles lining the beach, a lack of people, and turquoise water. It really was everything I wanted it to be. The rooms were very nicely designed, very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The lighting design they have in the bungalows was great with lots of dimmable uplighting making for a romantic and chill vibe. The one complaint I did have as that the dipping pool really wasn't warm enough to get into until about 3pm. It would be nice if they could heat the pools. As for complaints about the service- again we had really good service, not as fast as in New York City, where I live, but why would I expect that? And as for the complaints about it being expensive. If you think an 8 dollar cocktail is expensive, I'd tell you you're crazy. Yes, most cocktails on the island are 4 dollars, but most aren't as good and 8 dollars still isn't expensive. The food was over all tasty and good at Yemeya with only a couple misses. Another cool thing about this island is there aren't that many tourists. We were often the only people on the beach and never more than a handful of others. And the tourists that were there, or atl east the ones we talked to were cool, friendly and adventurous. The boat ride there was, and I won't lie, quite terrifying. The waves were huge and I felt like we are going to tip over at any point. But we didn't and the ride was worth it! The ride on the way back wasn't bad at all as the waves were going in a different direction. I also heard from the Yemaya staff that they are fixing their boat, which was much bigger to take passengers from Big Corn to Little Corn at some point in the future. I definitely go back to Yemaya again This vacation is for you if you are looking to be far way from people, on an island that isn't.over developed with beautiful beaches and you just want to chill.

We loved our stay at Yemaya. The grounds are well kept & the resort is quaint. You can explore the coastline for miles. It is just a gorgeous place. Breakfast is good, but we ventured off property more often than not for meals. Lunch & dinner weren’t bad, just not memorable, & there are so many other choices. We knew when we booked our reservation we’d need to move rooms for one night because that night was already booked. No problem. We had to call the front desk the morning we were to move because we hadn’t heard anything since we booked months before. We were given a time later that morning & were told to bring our belongings to the front desk. I guess I just expect a slightly higher level of service in situations like this. Let me know when I check in or reach out to me with logistics. Give us a time & transfer our belongings for us. That said, we’d love to return one day. The boat ride there is absolutely worth it.
Getting there is a challenge - but totally worth it

The trip to Little Corn involves some effort but once you arrive you'll discover your own private island and Yemaya is the perfect place to stay.
The WiFi is fast enough, the air conditioning is cold, the hot water is hot - and the facilities are excellent. The idea that you get all that plus a perfect breakfast each day on this remote island is amazing.
We loved our room and private balcony. The staff is beyond excellent. It's the kind of place where even the landscape guys are friendly and say "hello". The team speaks excellent English and will do anything you need (they even ordered my wife's tea bags and had them flown over from Managua). The management has achieved a level of excellence rarely witnessed in remote accommodations.
The beach is beautiful. Lounge chairs, hammocks, kayaks, masks/snorkels, and paddleboards are in plentiful supply. The hotel restaurant is open, breezy, and comfortable and delivers on its promises.
First rate hotel, grounds and staff

The first thing you notice as you approach the property from the sea is the beautiful setting. Set on a bluff where each of the bungalows overlook a private pure white beach, we could tell this was something special. Then you are lead through the beautiful grounds with unique statues and artwork. All of the bungalows are tastefully furnished and every detail was thoughtfully appointed. All of the staff were exceptional from the manager and waitstaff, Angela, Jash, Ron, Muriell and Mark the groundsman who brought us fresh coconut water every morning. The menu is somewhat limited but the food is so good you could easily eat the same thing twice. The ceviche was the best we have had since our trip to Peru. Everyone on the island was very friendly and helpful. Both Corn Island and Little Corn and not affected by the politics of the mainland so this has never been an issue for us. Must see place.

Yemaya is an absolutely beautiful resort in every way. The location is incredible - it really is an untouched area in the Caribbean, which makes the beaches and area of the island so pristine. We had a bungalow with a plunge pool (highly recommend if they are available) for 7 nights, and wish we could have done another week! The rooms were amazing, and the housekeeping team did a great job. My fiance and I got engaged while we were there, so it will always be extra special to us, but it was the perfect place to celebrate.
We ended up going into town 1 day (about a 30 min walk), but otherwise had all of our meals at Yemaya. The food and drinks were very good, and we didn't feel any real reason to have to go into town for meals. There's plenty of excursion options, but otherwise the beach is great to simply relax. Possibly the most memorable part of our stay was the staff - they were all so welcoming and accommodating! Specifically Alvaro, Jash, and Jon.
After reading other reviews, we knew the legs of the trip to get to the island would be adventurous, and they really were! The public panga is a little stressful if the waters are rough, but it is SO worth it.
Overall, we couldn't have enjoyed our week more, and cannot wait to come back!
