We spent 4 nights there during "Semana Santa", or Holy Week. We loved the beautifully renovated hotel, the staff was all nice, and having the swimming pool was fantastic, as Leon is VERY hot. (The pool could have been a touch cleaner though.)
The rooms with just one bed in them are all really great. However, since we were traveling 2 adults and 2 kids, we had to take a room with 2 double beds, and unfortunately, all of those rooms are windowless! This was excruciating when the electricity went out one night, as the hotel does not have a back up generator, so we were in a hot, windowless room without a/c or even a fan for a few hours, until the a/c came back on. It doesn't seem like the power must go off that often in Nicaragua.
The double rooms are also a bit on the small side for having two beds in them.
However, for the price - $111/night including taxes and breakfast, we thought it was a good value, and would certainly stay here again. The other fancy, renovated colonial hotel in town, El COnvento, does not have a pool, and we really enjoyed using the pool at La Perla.
