Recently our family went to Granada for about 3 weeks of Spanish classes. As a family of 6 (four kids between the ages of 6 and 12) we were not eligible for a "home stay" through the Spanish school and we were certainly not looking for a hotel that would require us to eat out 3 meals a day for...

Hotel Xalteva in Granada, Nicaragua, is a gem! Manager Melissa and her team devote themselves to their guests' comfort. It's a quiet, clean, safe, charming colonial-style hotel a bit away from the hubbub of the center of town. I stayed for 7 nights and I have only compliments for the hotel and gratitude for the staff!

I stayed here for just two nights in late March. Hotel arranged a driver to pick us up from the Managua airport. Room was clean and charming, the complimentary breakfast was delicious, and the pool and surrounding area are gorgeous - we loved reading under the pergola and cooling off in the pool. Definitely recommend!

Melissa and her staff are fantastic! Everything was taken care of for us. Everything was clean, safe, and friendly. What more can you ask for? Hotel Xalteva is beautiful, our trip was too short and we look forward to visiting again, hopefully soon!

To begin, My hubby and I were on our baby moon in Nicaragua to the dismay of a number of Americans we happen to know. I would like to stress that 100% of these particular Americans who were warning us against Nicaragua had never, NEVER been there. That said, with strong convictions but a bit more nervously... Our search for... More

We spent 2 weeks in March at this condo hotel. Accommodation was great, one bedroom by pool. Staff were awesome, could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was perfect, greek yogurt, fresh fruit and very good pastry. Walk into town about 5 to 8 minutes, take cab after dark(10 corbs before 10 pm, 20 after). Tours easily arranged at front...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Xalteva recently. This is a very good spot in Granada for the traveler who wants to be slightly removed from the noise and bustle of the center of Granada. Hotel Xalteva is a relatively short walk from Parque Central and all the restaurants of Calle la Calzada. The hotel offered a two room condo... More

Dear Guests, Thank you very much for your review. The points you brought up were great and the suggestions will only help us improve. This year we have begun purchasing new mattresses, pillows for the bedrooms and so far have approximately 1/2 of the units with new items, the unit you stayed in does not have the new items yet....

This was our first trip to Nicaragua and had no idea what to expect. Xalteva more than exceeded our expectations. The hotel has the most friendly, service oriented staff, ready to help your every needs. The condo was very clean, quiet, and well appointed with local style. There was a wonderful poolside breakfast, with tasty Nicaraguan coffee. You can walk... More
