I stayed here for four nights and really had a great experience. I found the room to be large, clean, and comfortable, I found the complimentary breakfast to be varied and delicious and the wait staff to be very friendly and courteous, and the hosts Tim and Andreus-and Michael at the front desk-to be friendly and very helpful. Tim and Michael both took the time to draw me detailed maps of places to visit in the nearby hills, such as San Juan del Oriente and Lagoon Apopoyo, and in the town itslef, and Michael helped me to book a boat tour of the islands when I couldn't find a boat that would take a solo traveler at the agencies in town.
The hotel itself is located on a dead end street with parking and a guard at night, is well removed from the noisy celebrations going on just a couple of blocks away, and yet it is only a few minutes' walk from the central plaza or the main street where all the restaurants are located. The views of the city are beautiful from the rooftop terrace, particularly at sunset, and the patio and lobby of the hotel itself are very quiet and inviting.
I also met some really nice people at the hotel, shared my boat for the tour of the islands with two other guests, and had a good time conversing with the other people staying at the hotel over breakfast and later in the day.
I highly recommend La Islita Boutique Hotel, and will definitely be staying there again when I return to Granada, which I will most certainly be doing in the not too distant future.
