Wow! Staying at the Plaza Colon Hotel in Granada, Nicaragua was terrific. The location is excellent on the main square and the hotel is a beautiful example of local architecture. It is clean.The air conditioning and fan in the room work well, as does the hot water in the shower. It is lovely to stay in a room fronting the plaza with a large balcony overlooking the slice of life in the park. The birds are rather noisy early in the morning and at dusk, but the interest in the square far outweighs the inconvenience. Quieter rooms front on the inside patio.The staff is friendly, accommodating, and informative. In particular, Virginia Alvarado, the manager of guest relations recommends tours, restaurants and anything else you want to know always with a bright smile. Carlos, the bellhop, was helpful in assisting us to find a misplaced item.
There is a nicely appointed pool in the inner courtyard to cool off whenever you need; the breakfast presents a variety of foods from freshly cooked eggs and toasts to fruit and yogurt served by the staff , or buffet style when the hotel is full. A cafe next door provides food all day until about 7 p.m.You can walk to quite a number of restaurants and bars.The hotel can arrange for airport transfers and day trips to the many interesting sights and activities in the area including the volcanoes, Las Isletas, Masaya market, Laguna de Apoyo and even further afield to the coastal beaches. We used Favio Castillo's transport service with the driver/guide Carlos, whom we recommend highly. The hotel uses them and recommends them.
Run, don't walk to stay at this hotel for all your needs in Nicaragua. It can be your base for all your activities. We stayed for a week and loved every moment, always feeling safe.
