I don't know if it was because this was the first "real" bed we slept in a long time, or that the bathrooms were clean, and the water was hot, but La Islita was a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, large rooms with nice bathrooms. It is near the main plaza and the street with shopping and eating, but... More

Room was very comfortable. We loved the pool area and especially the roof top patio with a view of the volcano and town. Tim is a great host and Arnold was very helpful with recommendations for out of the way places to eat. Everyone is very friendly - it's safe and quite. Breakfast was great - different every day.

I travelled to Granada with two friends and we stayed at the hotel for one night. They arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport, which was a great decision considering how overwhelming it can be when arriving somewhere in Nicaragua. We had a great room on the main floor with three double beds (unusual, but perfect for... More

The owners Tim and Andreas have designed and operate this very special hotel. They treat you like friends and provide a lovely salt water pool in the courtyard, good wifi throughout, a well prepared and presented breakfast, and warm and stylish decor. It's location is perfect, at the end of a quiet dead-end street with easy access to Granada's attractions.... More

Very very nice location only 2 blocks from la calzada (party street) yet quite. It is so charming and chic you wanna live in the hotel, very detail oriented with the decorations. Rooms are very nice, very clean and confortante, good size and environment. Something to improve I would say breakfast, presentation was great but eggs can be more creative... More

Small boutique hotel in a quite location. We had room #6 which has a balcony that overlooks the pool. The hotel is about two blocks from the square and it is easy waking to everything. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful, especially Arnold, who set up a boat tour for us of Lake Nicaragua and recommended several restaurants.

The reception desk was so friendly and accommodating of our needs, arranging tours, suggesting great restaurants, calling a massage therapist to remove our plane aches. Would definitely stay here again.

As other reviewers have mentioned the La Islita is in a great location, just a couple blocks form the main touristy area of Granada. Even better than the actual hotel were the staff who were very friendly helpful with arranging tours and with providing a great breakfast which is included in the price. Our 5 and 3 yr old loved...

We loved our stay here. Our flight landed late in Managua, but we had arranged transportation through La Islita and it was easy as could be. They were waiting for us and took us right to the hotel. Tim & crew fed us amazing breakfasts, gave us tons of advise on where to go, and were generally very friendly. The... More

Ok the staff is absolutely wonderful there is no dought about that. The morning breakfast is good but better are the ladies that serve the breakfast which are absolutely adorable. About the hotel it is not what people make it sound to be. There is nothing fabulous about it, It is outdated, it smells like humidity, no bar, no dining,... More
