Dont be swayed by the rutted road which takes you here off the main highway. This is a lovely modern hotel across the street from a gated community with mega mansions.. We arrived on New Years Eve to a big party but with the air conditioner and the fan, our room was surprisingly quiet. It seems like each of the rooms has a theme, ours is #3- Volcan (volcano), as evidenced by a volcanic rock wall and hewn stone sink. The shower is a glassed in chamber (beam me up) which sits in front of the stone wall and below a skylight. The hotel also has a van and they will drive you to any spots in town. We went to La Galleria on NYE which was a great spot to people watch, dance to live music and imbibe the national rum, Flor de Cana. If you have time, take a dip in the hotel's lovely lap pool. Our breakfast here was the best in Nicaragua- eggs Benedict and the typical Nica breakfast, lovely presentation, fresh and delicious. Juices are made fresh, fruit is first puréed in a blender then strained.
The owner of the hotel was kind enough to also arrange our transfer to the Aqua Wellness Resort near Playa Gigante in the hotel's new and comfortable Toyota Hillux at a very fair and competive rate. It definitely is worth using the hotel's vehicles for peace of mind. In Granada, we had a private guide and dealt with 2 flat tires in one day! (based on hearsay, this is not an uncommon experience)
