“A true Oasis/Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My boyfriend and I decided to forgo more 'roughing' it as we ended our 10 day trip in Nicaragua. We blew off our jungle plans to stay here. On a back road but not too far from the town center, this boutique hotel was one of the best hotel stays I've ever had. It's beautifully designed with all the best amenities. The cleanliness of this place is impeccable! The staff, sweet and helpful. It was such a treat for us. We didn't realize until our third and last morning there that breakfast is included in the very affordable price, and wow it was a delicious breakfast. Your choice of American style or Nicaraguan style, my boyfriend and I each ordered a different one. It was tons of food and well prepared. It included juice, coffee, and a delicious fruit smoothie at the end. I've never had an included breakfast this well done. The concierge service set up a few nice tours for us and we even each got a massage/acupuncture treatment that was amazing, and right behind our room! Though I enjoyed Nicaragua, the only reason I would ever go back is to stay at Los Patios again.

Room Tip: They're all amazing!

Los Patios is an exceptional place to stay! Originally built as the residence of its owners, a Danish family, Los Patios feels like you are staying in the guest accommodations of a sophisticated friend's home rather than a hotel. You are so attentively catered to by the fabulous staff, are fed a gourmet breakfast and snacks (to order), have all your comforts taken care of (gym and yoga classes, massages and spa, swimming pool, wifi, tv, a/c). It is a pleasure to live in such stylish architecture and design - Scandinavian/latino fusion. We stayed in both a double room and the magnificent suite with its balcony and view. The location is fine - a short walk from everything - in a safe residential neighborhood with friendly Nicas (it is authentic and has not been gentrified yet). Staying at Los Patios is pure delight!

Room Tip: All rooms are great but the suite is special

We found this gem through friends who highly recommended it to us. Stayed there twice and found a very quiet, modern environment, with swimming pool, excellent breakfast and outstanding services. The common area are extraordinarily large for a five room hotel. We highly recommend it to people looking for a ''home away from home'' and look forward to going back on our next trip to Granada.

Room Tip: The large suite on second floor is available for a small extra price. Well worth it if you intend to...

This place is slightly off the beaten path in a family neighborhood. The vibe is laid back and the vast outdoor space has a tranquil energy. The breakfast are terrific and the staff is really friendly and helpful.
The hotel has internetband air conditioning which is unique. It is also just steps from Pure Fitness Spa which is nice for the area.
We had read some reviews that called the nieghborhood sketchy, but we think these folks have not traveled to many third world cities. It was very much a family area and we felt completely safe.

We high recommend this hotel for your stay to enjoy the city of Granada.

Room Tip: We like the first floor but for twenty bucks more there is a huge room with great views upstairs

We just departed this B&B after staying 5 nights. The place was like an Oasis. After a few really hot windlass days it was great to come back to the B&B and jump in the pool. The staff was exceptional..... everyone of them. We had a delicious breakfast everyday we stayed and occasionally ordered food off the menu during the day when to tired to go out. Everything is home made including the bread.

The place was very clean, quiet, staff was very friendly and helpful. Could not have asked for anything more.

The location is a few blocks from the central square which means you do not have the noise that other travelers complained about around Central park.

I have been meaning to write this review for ages but daydreaming about what a wonderful time we had there last June reminded me I never wrote anything about this amazing hotel! The building itself was our first draw for staying there and it's far more beautiful in person than in the pictures. We have a friend who is a prominent Nicaraguan architect and when he came to visit us for a drink, he couldn't believe he didn't already know about this place! The space may be gorgeous, but it was really the staff that made it such a lovely stay. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming! The food and especially the juices were beyond fantastic. I sort of just wish I could move in and use their fresh water pool everyday! I rarely write reviews, but this hotel really deserves it. We often stay at places that cost far, far more than this and have almost never been as happy with our stay as we were here.

On a side note, we, as well as a couple friends who visited, are gay and we felt totally comfortable there. There was no weird conversation about there only being one bed in the room that we often get in Latin America.

A couple of recommendations are to eat at the little cafe across and down the street. It's in a couple's house and the cooking is healthy and fresh. Also, the yoga classes at the studio down the street are very nice.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Los Patios, a small gem of a hotel in Granada, a lovely old Spanish colonial city. The building facade is plain and it's on a nondescript street, so it doesn't look promising at first, but once you cross the threshold, you feel like you've entered another world. Los Patios feels less like a hotel and more like the home of a wealthy friend with excellent taste. Multiples patios lead you deeper and deeper into the property, with delightful touches -- a hammock, a small but inviting swimming pool, a giant chess set -- in each one.

The public areas are stunning, but the rooms are lovely as well. Ours was spacious, high-ceilinged, and very clean. And the service is just as great as the property itself. Armando and Anne welcomed us and took care of all our needs, from booking tours to arranging transit. Breakfast was delicious. They do something special to their rice and beans that adds a crunch to it -- just the kind of attention to detail that shows in everything about Los Patios.

The only minor downside: it could be a little closer to the heart of the city -- La Calzada, Plaza de la Independencia, etc. But it's a short walk, just a few blocks. We walked in the area at night and felt perfectly safe, although we tend to be on the intrepid side. (One other issue -- the wireless internet, which other reviewers have mentioned -- was quickly resolved by Anne just rebooting the router.)

In short, Los Patios is amazing -- and an amazing value, too. Nicaragua happens to be a very affordable country, but a place like this anywhere else in the world could charge two to three times as much. If you should ever find yourself in Granada, definitely stay at Los Patios.
