My 4 year old liked it and learned a lot. You end up making hot chocolate and chocolate bars. I think its more about the experience than the quality of the food. The chocolate maker was super friendly and made a fun experience. The adults also were able to sample some homemade liqueurs.

I walked in here and read all the free information they have on cocoa. Quite interesting. I then had a drink in their cafe (expensive!) before looking at their chocolate bars (even more expensive). They do short chocolate making classes but I have no idea the prices. Avoid (bar the free 'museum') unless in need of a chocolate fix. But... More

We had a massage at the spa in the back of the ChocoMuseaum, and then spent the day at the pool drinking and eating.

Our time here consisted of perusing the various big posters explaining the history, and processing of chocolate. These were very informative and interesting. Various props were scattered about as well. The highlight was having both a hot and cold chocolate beverage from the bar. These were absolutely the best chocolate drinks ever! We did not experience the spa, but we... More

Ismael is a great teacher. He made The Class very interesting and fun. It is a great experience. They also sell liquor with chocolate, coffee, mint, ginger and others.

ChocoMuseo is an unusual place in Granada, as you enter, you seem to carry on walking from the front entrance all the way down to the people, on the way enjoying the chocolate in the shop, the chocolate workshop area, then the reception and continuing all the way down to the swimming pool. An interesting and very large area full... More

Was told about this place and had to try it. The cold choco was very nice. The service was very good. The waiters and staff were very attentive and really wanted to let you know all the information on how the choco is harvested through to the finished product. The products vary from chocolate bars through to lip balms to... More

Visited this little shop January 2016. Very friendly staff who speak English and are very informative. You can either take a verbal tour or try your hand at the coffee/cocoa production. We sampled a few coffee liqueurs while there but unfortunately they were out of the two we wanted to purchase. This shop backs onto a very pretty courtyard full... More

We stayed a couple of nights and enjoyed the experience. The staff was friendly; breakfast was good and included chocolate crepes! They give you half off all the spa services if you are a guest at the hotel. They have a great pool area as well where you can buy affordable food and drinks, try the watermelon mojito.

Ishmael was a delightful teacher in the history of chocolate and the steps necessary to make chocolate like the Mayans, the Aztecs, the Spaniards and the Italians. This was a very worthwhile experience.
