“beautiful and lovely hotel”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

What a value! Upon arriving, we were greeted by very friendly staff and the hotel itself was even more beautiful than on the website. The rooms are very large and comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel La Mar Dulce. It's located 8 minutes from central park. Staff was helpful and accomodations quite nice. Staff helped book tours/transport. We enjoyed our stay.

The pool is beautiful. The complimentary breakfast is a wonderful spread, including fresh gallo pinto and eggs to order as well as fresh espresso. After the first night we decided to extend for the rest of our stay in Granada.

The hotel is situated just minutes walk from just about all the real stuff in Granada; bus stations, malls, etc. We felt safe walking to and from local bars and restaurants at night.

If you really want to enjoy Granada this is the place to do it.

We loved staying at La Mar Dulce. The rooms are clean and comfortable with fridges, comfy beds, a safe and flat screen TV. We travelled with our 7 year old daughter, and she loved the pool. It was a nice break every afternoon from the dust and heat of Granada. They also give you as many big pool towels as you need, which was a nice change from other hotels we stayed at in the country that just gave us two bath towels. In addition, the staff is very friendly and the free breakfast is delicious.

An unexpected delight was the location, which is about 8 blocks from the city center. Because the hotel is in a local neighborhood, you get to witness day to day Nica life-- we even got to take part in a Semana Santa processional!

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a room with a balcony on the front of the hotel, but the local dogs bark a lot at...

We stayed here in Granada 3 nights and could not have picked a better hotel...Our room was substantial, clean and had all the necessary amenities for the confort u need. The pool was cool and inviting, and the breakfast was all one could ask for. The very best part of the experience, however, is the people of the Hotel La Mar Dulce. Everyone smiled and seemed to enjoy being there. They were gracious and helpful, So don't miss staying here if you are in Granada.

we'll be back soon!
Thank you guys! we really enjoy this gem!!!

I stayed at Hotel La Mar Dulce last week with a group of 6 of my friends. We stayed for three nights, and had a wonderful experience. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms were well maintained and the pool was beautiful. With a flat screen TV, A/C and safe in each room, in my opinion Hotel La Mar Dulce was a bargain for the price we paid.

While the hotel is a bit of a walk (about 10 minutes) from the center of the city, we found that the walk allowed us to explore some parts of the city we might have not seen otherwise. We also never felt unsafe on the walk, or had problems navigating the city.

Finally, the Nica Typico breakfast served here is great, possibly the best breakfast that we had during our 10 day trip to Nicaragua.

This is a beautiful little hotel with excellent service. It is clean, quiet and located within walking distance to the center of town. The breakfast was good and the pool great. They arranged a transfer to Managua for us with Favio Castillo which I would highly recommend. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We were pleasantly surprised...we had an overbooking at another hotel for a group in Granada and that hotel arranged for us to stay at the Mar Dulce. It is conveniently located - a nice, safe walk to the center of town and away from all the noise of that area. The neighborhood is quiet and full of families sitting out on their front steps - everyone greeted us kindly...was a switch from the other hotels that are in the busyness of the center. It is also 4 blocks from La Colonia and La Union supermarkets, so if you need anything, you won't have to travel far to replenish supplies like bottled water and snacks, which can be expensive for groups if bought in a tienda.

The rooms are nice and clean...hot water, AC and the pool area is beautiful.

We would definitely bring groups there again and we strongly recommend this hotel!

This hotel is clean, quiet, and conveniently located to the central part of town. An easy walk to restaurants, the market, and attractions you would hope to see in Granada. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They were attentative to our needs and quick to respond. They coordinated all of our day trips for us and made our trip very enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this spot to anyone considering making there way down to Granada.
