The Dario is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in, even compared to some hotels here in the states. The hotel itself is very open with plenty of room to lounge around. The staff is extremely accommodating and very friendly. The cafe within the hotel is fantastic (I personally recommend the chocolate cheesecake). If you need... More

First off the Location was perfect. I went with a team of 20 people. We would walk to the town square everyday. If you want to do any shopping or if you're looking for a good restaurant, Hotel Dairo is located in a very convenient location. The Staff was second to none. They went above and beyond everyday. They even... More

The Alhambra and Hotel Granada were very nice. However, the Dario is, in my opinion, the best location being directly on Calle La Calzada. Alhambra is at the far end of the Central Square and Hotel Granada is at the furthest end of the city. All within walking distance of anything you'd want to see in Granada but The Dario... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and loved our balcony room overlooking Calle Calzada and Mombacho volcano. We had no trouble sleeping and the AC worked great. The pool is pretty small but it cooled us off after touring the city. The hotel is beautiful with high ceilings and we liked the balcony off the front of the room... More

The Dario was a pleasant surprise bursting with colonial beauty and staffed with a very friendly and professional staff. The rooms are great and the food is incredible. Don Ramon at breakfast will serve you with five-star excellence. Definitely coming back.

I spent a couple of days with my family in beautiful Granada. This was our first trip and, I'm glad to say, the hotel was a significant part of an overall wonderful experience. The room was immaculate. The one we stayed in had a lovely balcony facing the La Calzada street, the main artery of night life in Granada. The... More

This hotel was nice but not more then that. Some staff was really really nice but others where almost unfriendly. A recomendation is to not do laundry here since it is really expensive. Breakfast and The whole resturant area was great! I recomend it.

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in Immediately upon entering the Dario you know you are in for a treat. The reception and courtyard ooze colonial style.
