Following 3 nights at the most pleasant La Perla Hotel in Leon, my adult daughter and I just returned from 4 wonderful nights at Hotel Plaza Colon in Granada. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the hotel is its delightful staff. EVERYONE - from front desk, to Virginia the concierge, to bellmen, waiters and camareras - was warm, genuinely welcoming, knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful. Hotel itself - a restored 150 year old hacienda - is incredibly beautiful and perfectly maintained. Beautiful lobby, breathtaking interior courtyard with manicured plants and softly running water, blue-tiled pool with lovely pure water. Delicious breakfast served on wooden tables close to the pool, and our favorite waiter Juan ever so kindly helped us (at our request) with writing and speaking spanish (the persons at front desk were totally patient and helpful in that regard as well). Our room (203) was large, lovely (with wood floors, doors, shutters and cabinetry) and ever so clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our generous balcony overlooking the central square and cathedral. During daylight and early evening hours, the plaza was lined with horse carts and filled with local vendors and families enjoying a bit of leisure. During masses at the cathedral - especially in the evening - lights and singing emanating from the church were almost magical. My only suggestions were for stronger WIFI (it works perfectly in the common areas but is sometimes spotty in the rooms) and that the hotel offer lunch and dinner as well as breakfast (we were told that additional meals may be offered within the year). I am already dreaming of returning for a second visit within the year. I offer my highest recommendation.
