My husband and I visited on January 18 at about 7 pm. We were the only customers. We wanted to try a Nicaraguan steak. The first thing the waiter told us was that he had been working there for 33 years, and recommended the house wine, a Navarro Correas Argentine red. It turned out the wine was vinegary, so we...

I have spent quite a bit of time in Granada and passed the hotels many times, but had never eaten at Hotel Granada. What a pleasant surprise! The service was outstanding with experienced and well trained waiters. The menu was quite extensive and included everything from steak to fish and chips (real fish and chips I might add.) There were... More

Enjoyed the penne carbonara while my father ate their fish, veg, and french fries. My father had been to this restaurant and hotel before, and knows Roberto, one of the wait staff, very well. We were warmly greeted, handed an excellent table and menu almost immediately, and given time to consider what we wanted to eat. Roberto also suggested a... More

This restaurant, part of the hotel, has been very consistent over the past 3 years visited, food and prices have not changed although the food portion did shrink a little. Excellent staff, friendly and do treat past repeat guests with special care, thank you for complimentary dessert, carrot cake was delicious!

The last restaurant in a long line of choices, this one is worth the walk from the central park. The steak are well prepared and good quality. The service is highly attentive and professional. And the location is beautiful, only a short walk to the lake, with outdoor seating across from a church, which at night is well lite and... More

If you are a committed lap swimmer as I am, there is no other place to swim in Granada, Nicaragua. Given its somewhat odd shape, I cannot provide exact dimension, but I can say that my hour swim yielded a very solid workout. Avoid the pool on weekends--Sundays are especially bad--as local families roll in and take over the joint.

They have the largest pool around Granada and on a hot day it is well worth it to pay for a day pass to the pool. It is huge and there is plenty of room to move around. The plam trees don't hurt.
