After a few months of traveling, my poor toes were sufferring a bit. A friend recommended this place so I went. It was a very simple set up, no massaging spa chair, but the girl was really nice and friendly. Her room was clean and had live plants hanging from the walls. It was very inexpensive and she did a...

Very nice and helpful personnel. Pool could use lots of work. I might consider staying there again. Drinks a little pricey for Nicaragua. Very central location you can walk to everything. Very old building but I guess that's what gives it its charm.

You will need more stomach for this, nice and relaxing view, good smell of chocolate and also good taste its organic, so I guess that make it more fresh and tastier. I still dont get why they charge 10% fee per tip and make it obligatory. Check your bill please so they dont charge you more

Hello Luis Miranda, thank you for your comment and rating on TripAdvisor. We are glad to read that you have enjoyed our drinks with the nice view at our Cacao Pool Club.

Centrally located on the main street in the commercial section. Peacefull location and quiet. Has potential but unfortunately the owners have let it run down to a fair to poor condition. I cut my foot in the pool on the broken tiles and was not the only one who had that experience. Its a beautiful location but needs repairs. Again...

Stayed here for 2 nights after visiting little corn island. Tongo Picked us up from the air port and was extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. Rooms were spacious and air conditioned. The spa is a steal- guests get half off. The sports massage was by far the best I've ever had!

Nothing works, Poor spa, dirty pool, dirty rooms, loud. Gringo manager is never there. Staff is awful, no English. Wifi sucks. Smells funny. No safe parking. Bad food. AC is non-existent. Noisy area. There is a reason why this property is rated so low. So many other better choices in Granada.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mansion De Chocolate is located in the center of Granada and is housed in the largest intact surviving colonial mansion of Granada. It comprises five courtyard gardens, each with its own distinctive flavor. Decorated with edgy modern furnishings, Mansion De Chocolate has the feeling of a hip modern hotel in an authentic colonial setting, creating a unique blending of the modern and the traditional. Always benefiting from the breezes from Lake Cocibolca, the large shared balconies provide an ideal vantage point from which to watch the glorious Nicaraguan sunsets. You'll enjoy refreshing yourself in the hotel's 60 foot swimming pool in a flowery patio with bar and relaxing in our ChocoSpa, where we offer treatments based on cacao and chocolate. In our ChocoMuseo we offer you a daily all you can eat breakfast buffet and delicious chocolate products. Do the 'from bean to bar workshop' and you'll learn a lot about chocolate and its history, flavor and benefits. ... more   less
