I have spent quite a bit of time in Granada and passed the hotels many times, but had never eaten at Hotel Granada. What a pleasant surprise! The service was outstanding with experienced and well trained waiters. The menu was quite extensive and included everything from steak to fish and chips (real fish and chips I might add.) There were... More

Enjoyed the penne carbonara while my father ate their fish, veg, and french fries. My father had been to this restaurant and hotel before, and knows Roberto, one of the wait staff, very well. We were warmly greeted, handed an excellent table and menu almost immediately, and given time to consider what we wanted to eat. Roberto also suggested a... More

This restaurant, part of the hotel, has been very consistent over the past 3 years visited, food and prices have not changed although the food portion did shrink a little. Excellent staff, friendly and do treat past repeat guests with special care, thank you for complimentary dessert, carrot cake was delicious!

The last restaurant in a long line of choices, this one is worth the walk from the central park. The steak are well prepared and good quality. The service is highly attentive and professional. And the location is beautiful, only a short walk to the lake, with outdoor seating across from a church, which at night is well lite and... More

...with our room. Was really very good, enjoyed the buffet and service was top notch!!! Look for Roberto. We'd stop in after dinner somewhere to have a glass of wine and he was very attentive, stopping by to bring us little treats...

If you are a committed lap swimmer as I am, there is no other place to swim in Granada, Nicaragua. Given its somewhat odd shape, I cannot provide exact dimension, but I can say that my hour swim yielded a very solid workout. Avoid the pool on weekends--Sundays are especially bad--as local families roll in and take over the joint.

They have the largest pool around Granada and on a hot day it is well worth it to pay for a day pass to the pool. It is huge and there is plenty of room to move around. The plam trees don't hurt.

I simply enjoy the Hotel Granada...the pool ( Best in Granada ), the restaurant and the service.....It is understated and in a very quiet area of the walking street...better known as the Calzada...down toward the lake it is a wonderful place for dinner or just a coffee..one of a few places on the Calzada where you can sit outside and...

The little restaurant in front lacks any real atmosphere, but the service may be best in Granada and the food is very good. Selection OK, not great. Clean.
