“Great place to enjoy the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We stayed here in Granada 3 nights and could not have picked a better hotel...Our room was substantial, clean and had all the necessary amenities for the confort u need. The pool was cool and inviting, and the breakfast was all one could ask for. The very best part of the experience, however, is the people of the Hotel La Mar Dulce. Everyone smiled and seemed to enjoy being there. They were gracious and helpful, So don't miss staying here if you are in Granada.

we'll be back soon!
Thank you guys! we really enjoy this gem!!!

I stayed at Hotel La Mar Dulce last week with a group of 6 of my friends. We stayed for three nights, and had a wonderful experience. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms were well maintained and the pool was beautiful. With a flat screen TV, A/C and safe in each room, in my opinion Hotel La Mar Dulce was a bargain for the price we paid.

While the hotel is a bit of a walk (about 10 minutes) from the center of the city, we found that the walk allowed us to explore some parts of the city we might have not seen otherwise. We also never felt unsafe on the walk, or had problems navigating the city.

Finally, the Nica Typico breakfast served here is great, possibly the best breakfast that we had during our 10 day trip to Nicaragua.

This is a beautiful little hotel with excellent service. It is clean, quiet and located within walking distance to the center of town. The breakfast was good and the pool great. They arranged a transfer to Managua for us with Favio Castillo which I would highly recommend. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We were pleasantly surprised...we had an overbooking at another hotel for a group in Granada and that hotel arranged for us to stay at the Mar Dulce. It is conveniently located - a nice, safe walk to the center of town and away from all the noise of that area. The neighborhood is quiet and full of families sitting out on their front steps - everyone greeted us kindly...was a switch from the other hotels that are in the busyness of the center. It is also 4 blocks from La Colonia and La Union supermarkets, so if you need anything, you won't have to travel far to replenish supplies like bottled water and snacks, which can be expensive for groups if bought in a tienda.

The rooms are nice and clean...hot water, AC and the pool area is beautiful.

We would definitely bring groups there again and we strongly recommend this hotel!

This hotel is clean, quiet, and conveniently located to the central part of town. An easy walk to restaurants, the market, and attractions you would hope to see in Granada. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They were attentative to our needs and quick to respond. They coordinated all of our day trips for us and made our trip very enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this spot to anyone considering making there way down to Granada.

We stayed here for two nights (two couples). The hotel picked us up from the airport, helped arrange tours in the area for the two days we were visiting in Granada and organized our drive back to the airport. The staff truly made the experience memorable - they were always smiling, very accommodating, very helpful and were always checking in with us to see if they can help makes our experience even better. The room was very spacious (even though we shared one room with double beds!) and the pool was very clean and enjoyable. We spent two nights swimming In the pool, enjoying a few cuba libres from the bar after long days of hiking/exploring the city - a perfect way to unwind! The location isn't in that bad of an area as it is in a neighborhood and we felt completely safe walking to and from the hotel to the "downtown" area in the daytime and evening. Breakfast was very good (Nicaragua style) and the coffee was delicious!! Hands down - this hotel was a great bargain for how lovely the staff were and how clean and comfy our rooms were (AC in the room!).

We stayed at Hotel La Mar Dulce and loved it. The room was great...modern, clean and the AC was cold. The breakfast that came with room was tasty. The surrounding neighborhood is a bit sketchy but the hotel is beautiful and the pool was great. It has a cool little waterfall and a patio bar. It was such a great value! We will definitely be back.
