“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our family stayed here for 3 nights in January 2013 and had a great great time. The rooms were excellent, clean and roomy, the inner courtyard beautiful, the breakfasts fantastic and the staff first rate. I would highly recommend this hotel and we very much appreciated Julian who was our very helpful and knowledgeable tour guide.

On a friend's recommendation we chose this hotel for two nights for our Costa Rican 'out-of-country' requirement.

We asked to change our second-floor room to the first floor and were fortunate to receive the last room available in the hotel. No problem. We were in Room #2. No window, but a skylight over the door and another in the bathroom. The room appeared to be dark, but we had adequate lighting, unless the power was off, which is a frequent happening in Nicaragua these days. We either left the door open when we were in the room or moved on to one of the many common areas in the hotel.

The ambiance in the hotel is lovely. There are two pools with sitting areas. A breakfast area and bar are available in-house. The breakfasts were delicious and the service was great. The hotel is situated just off the city square and close to many restaurants and local attractions. There is an excellent tour office off the lobby and Julien took us to two of the local mercados and waited patiently while we enjoyed our outing. The staff is very friendly, English-speaking and very accommodating.

We also experienced a time during the days when water was not available. However, we were told when the water would be turned on, and the information was correct. Just be sure and check the taps everywhere before you soap up!

This is a lovely Colonial town and this hotel is a clean, reasonably-priced hotel with lovely art work and landscaping in a great location. I have no qualms about recommending this very comfortable hotel.

We had a lovely weekend stay here while in Granada. Cool, shady ambiance away from the busy street out front. Great coffee and service for the included breakfast. Very kind and attentive, helpful front desk people. Easy access to the central plaza and the sights of the city. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The suites in the back area are quiet.

The only thing stopping me from an excellent review was the water pressure. The location was very good. We liked being just off the square and not right on it. The room was not huge but fit a king sized bed comfortably. It was very quiet at night. Our room was number 7 and only had a window over the door and another one up high over the sink in the bathroom. It really didn't bother us but there are rooms with windows. There were two small pools that looked very clean. Over all the hotel was very clean. The people very helpful and it was quite colorful with colorful tiles paint and artwork throughout.

Started our first Nica vacation here and felt very lucky. Booked 4 nights, added another. Loved the pool, the quiet, and chatting other guests. Good breakfast. Big room with two queen beds, AC (though we used mostly the ceiling fan only). Water supply fine except one afternoon while city re-pressurized the system. $80 pre-tax rate included breakfast. Close to everything we wanted to walk to.

Lousy service, no water in room or available for guests, boring artwork, unimpressive lobby, so so AC. IT IS 11am and pool Cushions missing. Waited till 4 for room cleaner yesterday. Hotel is nearly empty. They charge 50 for ride from airport, ten dollar markup. Many better choices in town for better price

Regarding each point we answer the following: It may be true there was no water pressure but in each room we have a cordial note that says to call front desk to put the water pump. (It’s a city problem, not a hotel problem) With the a/c we have newly installed Trane a/c`s. This is a good brand here. The corridors and courtyard are all decorated in a beautiful colonial style, but we respect alls opinion. We recall that that morning it had rained so we put the cushions back later when they dried, normally they are out 24/7. December is high season, so the hotel WAS very full that day (37 / 37 rooms) and this is why we took a while to do the cleaning. For the airport it takes 1 hour to get there, and 1 hour to return. The U$50 dollars we charge is for a private transportation in our Minivan, total (not per person) , it is impossible that anyone will charge you 10 dollars total to take you to the airport unless it is COLECTIVE ride or in the public buses that take 2 hours to just get there.

After staying at the Hotel Spa Granada two blocks away, we missed the big windows and plenty of daylight in the rooms. We booked the suite with the upper alcove (that has two single beds) and it only has one small window, which made the room dark. Luckily, we spent most of the daytime outdoors either exploring the town or in the pool. The property is well-kept, clean, with hot showers and AC. Our biggest surprise was the breakfast - by far the best we ever had in Nicaragua! A funny side note: the hotel's address in Spanish translates to "25 sticks from Central Park" which is totally apt because it is that close to the main square.
