“Absolutely Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Everything about this hotel has been perfection during my family's stay. The breakfast is great, the pool is just right, the rooms are luxurious and immaculate, and the service is absolutely astounding. The employees here are phenomenal; they are friends, happy and just make the entire experience that much better. The hotel has a perfect, safe location right by the park and near La Calzada, the main street for bars and restaurants. I've never done a review before but this hotel was so energy/environmentally conscientious and the staff is top notch. Recommend if staying in Granada

We spent three nights at the Plaza Colon and loved it. The hotel is beautiful, luxurious, and in a great location. The staff was very kind and helpful. The room was super clean, and the pool and grounds are very well maintained. The bed was comfy, and the shower and A/C worked great. It is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in on our frequent travels, so we felt spoiled, especially considered the reasonable price. We also loved the morning breakfasts by the pool. Nicaraguan coffee, tropical fruits, and other delicious foods were a great way to start the day. This hotel is an amazing deal and a wonderful place to relax. We will stay there next time we come to Granada and recommend it to anyone who travels there.

This hotel is perfectly located on the parque central. The staff, Virginia in particular, were incredibly nice and helpful with recommendations and logistics. The pool was great, the breakfast delicious, and the rooms super clean and well appointed. The wireless is free and fast. Room 205 has an amazing balcony that looks out over the park and cathedral. Great people watching. I wish I had more time at this hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Plaza Colon in Granada for one night after a week of surfing and touring the coast of San Juan Del Sur and before flying home to USA. The hotel was a perfect transition from "roughing it" during our coastal stay to a luxurious hotel in beautiful downtown Granada. Great rooms and a great way to ease back into regular comforts before heading home. Ideal location for touring Granada on foot and for experiencing the essence of this wonderful city on foot.

Our experience with the hotel was amazing! Aside from the fact that the hotel was so beautiful, the staff was just fantastic. Everything we asked for, they had a ready answer and they really tried their best to fulfill our requests. They were always smiling and friendly, ready to help. The breakfast buffet spread was just spectacular. There were many choices and they were all sumptuous especially the Nacatamales. I will go back to Nicaragua for that! We were billeted at Room 102, which was right across the pool - very convenient for my kids and I. Weather was hot so we spent most of our time in the pool which the staff kept clean everyday. Our room was just beautiful. We were just raving about the decors and furniture, which was true to Granada's colonial style. We felt we hit a jackpot upon seeing it for the first time. We also liked the fact that the hotel is eco-conscious. Small notes were everywhere in the room on how we can contribute simply by not having to have towels and sheets changed everyday if not necessary.

The hotel also has a program for less-privileged students of a nearby public school. The hotel's guest relations rep, Virginia, helped us facilitate our school supplies donations with the school. This program of the hotel is one important factor why we chose to stay in this this hotel.

If and when we go back to Granada, we will definitely stay here again. We have been recommending it to our friends since we've gone home.

Loved, loved, loved this hotel! Huge modern rooms that were immaculate. We were on the second floor so we had our own balcony. The staff was so friendly and the food was delicious. The pool was a life saver in that crazy Nicaraguan heat. The hotel was centrally located to everything there is to see in Granada. Definitely worth it!!

The location of this hotel on the main square can not be beat. I really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the main square. The rooms were also very spacious and nice. The staff were awesome and answered all of my numerous questions, in particular Victor was very helpful. The breakfast they had was amazing, I got to try something new every day. I think my only complaint and it is not anything the hotel can do anything about, but there are a lot of birds that next in the trees in the main plaza and like clock work every day a half hour before sunrise they start making a lot of noise. Just a word of caution if you are a light sleeper like I am.
