I don't even know where to start, so I guess I'll begin by saying that Hotel La Bocona makes you want to cry when you walk in and cry even more when you have to leave. This hotel is so amazingly beautiful that it puts 4 diamond properties to shame. The simplistic beauty of the hotel itself is above reproach.... More

We chose to stay at La Bocona because the pictures online showed a stunning, unique property with charm and classic style. Our expectations were high - and were completely blown out of the water when we arrived. The hotel is GORGEOUS in every way; the room was the nicest I have ever stayed in (anywhere) and the central courtyard was... More

There are few hotels I spend time scheming ways about how soon I can return to them. But then, there are few hotels staffed by such a loving and magnificent a staff, set in as gorgeous environment. The hotel staff creates an atmosphere that, in the most professional way possible, is more like a family than a staff. The women... More

Wow. We knew the hotel would be lovely from the pictures and reviews, yet it exceeded our expectations. We booked six nights here and were initially interested in going to the beach so we could see the Pacific side too. We ended up staying in Granada and doing closer day trips, partly because we fell in love with the hotel... More

I have stayed here many times and its always a pleasure.

I was originally booked to spend 3 nights at la Bocona, but ended up adding an extra night (I would happily move in permanently if they would let me...).

I have rarely seen a hotel with more spectacular rooms: they are the size of small ballrooms, beautifully decorated with four-post beds, nice artwork and beautifully tiled. Absolutely amazing, The inner patio is a heaven of peace and quiet. The staff is polite, attentive, well trained and extremely quiet. The management is customer minded and super friendly.

Gorgeous hotel in the center of Granada. Beautiful courtyards, nice pool, and yummy breakfasts. The staff were amazing - attentive, welcoming and helpful. My young kids loved the pool. My only complaint would be the noise from the street, but it is also part of the overall experience.
