The information about the history and production of cocoa and chocolate is presented in an interesting and efficient way. You can take a class to learn how to make chocolate, which I enjoyed very much. The personnel is very professional and kind.

We spent a day walking around Granada taking in all the sights and were happy that we made a stop here. It's not a huge museum but there's an area where you can have your own chocolate mixed, a coffee bar, gift shop and small museum area explaining the history of chocolate. We enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate... More

The class is a lot of fun. You make chocolate from the bean to the final product. The stuff you grind ends up being used for hot chocolate which you try in a few different ways, but the bar you make will be with stuff prepped before hand. My friend and I lucked out and it was only us two,... More

it's an ok place to check out but don't expect too much of it. you can read the posters, try their tea or coffee as the patio is rather nice, and shop. however don't buy the chocolate there. I bought 4 different bars right before my flight back so with me they weren't sitting out in the heat. but now... More

Thanks for visiting and sorry you did not like the chocolate bars. We only use fresh cacao beans that we roast and mill ourselves. The antioxidants in cacao prevent the butter from going rancid, so I can assure you that it was not rancid. We do make our chocolate in an artisanal fashion, and perhaps you are not used to... More

I had a hot chocolate there the first day (it was like 90 degrees outside but I was scared to have the cold chocolate with ice). Every subsequent day I had the cold chocolate with ice and never had any issues with my bowels. Really nice people work here and some of them know english really well. The chocolate is... More

we really enjoyed looking at the history of chocolate information on the walls and the free tastings, even seeing the cocoa trees. However, we were sort of annoyed by the woman at the back insisting we try the spa ( although we told her we were not interested) and we all bought a piece of choclate for oursleves. However, once...

This place is trying very hard to be successful, but they need a focus and better chocolate. They offer a 2 hour chocolate making experience that includes a brief education about the bean to candy process. It would be much better to reserve certain classes for kids and others for adults, because it just isn't possible to engage 8 year... More

It was very interesting and the tour guide was funny and entertaining. I thought the price was excessive for what you get but nonetheless a fun and memorable experience.
