Dario is a very nice hotel, and centrally located in Granada. The rooms have a bit less charm than what I expected - as they are all standardized and not the charming colonial style unique rooms you'd hope for - but still a very nice property. The A/C units are very loud - possibly because of their design which seems... More

We were booked in to this hotel knowing nothing about it by a friend in Managua, fortunately it turned out to be a good recommendation. The hotel is neither modern nor luxurious but it is very comfortable and well run. The rooms that we had were fine, my single was a bit small but the other room, a double, was... More

While the hotel is architecturally beautiful, it is located on the main street in Granada, la Calzada which is peaceful during the day, but becomes "party central" at night until probably 2 AM on any given day. I am still puzzled as to why a very high end property in the south of Nicaragua recommends them and has an arrangement... More

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Granada. Rooms were comfortable and affordable. As other reviewers have mentioned, the door keys didn't work during our stay and we had to have staff members escort us to our room each time, which really didn't present too much of a problem for our group. They offered free dinner for all 5 of us... More

The rooms are just average, however, the hotel grounds are very nice. Beware that all rooms with a balcony also will come with extremely loud noise eminating from the various bars and clubs on Calle Calzada. My main issues with this place was that #1 I wasn't allowed to bring a lady friend into the hotel unless I had previously... More

We chose Hotel Dario on recommendation from another property. The room and property were quite clean, and the central garden quite lovely. We had both their menu and buffet breakfasts and were quite happy. The cafe also made proper espresso, which was nice for courtyard relaxing. Dario sits just off of the main square and is surrounded by restaurants and... More

In the centre of Granada a beautiful hotel with excellent courteous staff always willing to help. A problem with door keys meant we had to ask staff to be let into our room everytime but they offered us a free meal to compensate which was really appreciated. Great food as well - breakfast a veritable feast! I had the balcony... More

We loved this resort! Perfect location on the main strip, wonderful staff, inviting pool, terrific food and perfect Spanish Colonial setting! We were with kids so we requested a room in the back of the hotel so we didn't here the street noise. I bet the people watching is great up front, though. Highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel is in a beautiful colonial house, excellent maintained, modern rooms, in the best location in Granada. Service was excellent, everyone helps with a smile and with true willingness to help. We had a great time.
