We´re a family with 2 small children (3 years and 7 months old) and we really enjoyed staying at Hotel Xalteva. The rooms were very clean and well-equipped. We loved the continental breakfast. It worked really well for us when our baby was napping we could still hang outside by the pool with the baby monitor. It was close enough... More

This hotel is around a 15 minute walk from Central Park which is important to know as you'll find yourself walking there on numerous occasions during your stay in Granada. The staff is exceptional!

We were two middle-aged gay male friends (not partners) and I found Hotel Xalteva online while looking for a potential gay-friendly place to stay in Granada. We loved it. It was gay-friendly but not a "gay" place. Perfect for us. We enjoyed interacting with the older gay couple who were staying there as well as the straight families from Canada... More

This was a memorable stay on our Nicaragua travels, with the kindest staff imaginable. Spotless and spacious condos, quiet and convenient location, all the services you need on the road: above all, that grace and kindness which mark out the best of this enchanting country. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Granada.

We stayed at Hotel Xalteva in Granada for 4 nights and had a blast. The staff was awesome, the room clean, the breakfast light but delicious (exactly what you need at these temperatures). The location ist perfect, not too close to the touristy streets, but still walkable even at night. Would come back any time :-)
