We returned for our fourth (or maybe fifth?) stay at this wonderful little hotel, tucked away on a quiet side street just steps away from Iglesia La Merced. As always, we had a wonderful experience with our family.
What truly makes Hotel Terrasol special can't be quantified on a web review: The owners, Victor and Katya. Nica-born with experience living in America for an extended period, this charming couple came back to start a hotel in their hometown. Their love for sharing Granada with their guests is what makes Terrasol the most charming hotel in Granada. They are knowledgeable, passionate, kind and resourceful. The other staff, including Fatima who has cleaned there for years, is also very gracious. Every front desk staff is fluent in English and can help with restaurant recommendations and arrangements for activities (Isletas boat tour, horse and carriage ride, trip to Laguna de Apoyo, etc.)
We stayed in the two balcony rooms that face the street. From the balcony you can see Volcan Mombacho off in the distance, and you can watch Granada come to life in the morning.
Our beds were comfortable and very clean; we usually take advantage of the optional air conditioning. There is cable TV but we don't go to Nicaragua to watch TV. The wifi continues to improve throughout the hotel as technology improves in the country.
The bathrooms are nice and clean--the water isn't hot and it's never been a problem somewhere as warm as Granada. Hair dryers, floor mats and hand towels are also provided, along with shampoo and soap.
Breakfast is simple but always delicious: croissants with homemade guava jelly, great coffee (Terrasol has its own fair trade blend that it sources) and fruit.
It's an easy walk to the Parque Central from the hotel, but it's also inexpensive to take a cab in the city (10 cordobas per person, just under $1).
We continue to return to Terrasol. There are other new, flashy places in Granada. Some of them are probably good, but they can't be good enough to keep us from our favorite hotel, Terrasol.
