“This is the best choice.”
Reviewed 29 November 2009

if you consider that all profits from this outstanding hotel go towards the education of underpriviliged children from the surrounding villages, then the hotel con corazon in Granada, Nicaragua, is your BEST choice! My wife and I stayed in this hotel four nights just before the " Thanksgiving Holiday " and had a wonderful time. The staff, from the front desk's Alfredo and Gabriel to the Manager of the hotel, Freek Sanders ( the Manager, who is from Netherlands and co-founder of the NGO that runs this hotel, is the soul of this wonderful place) treat you like you are their closest relatives, returning back home. Their hospitality and service is exemplary. The last day,upon our departure, we needed a few additional bags of high quality local coffee and the Manager of this hotel left the hotel and in a few minutes returned with some more bags. Service above and beyond any expectation! The hotel is a new structure, in a colonial building, a very civilized, quiet and well equiped place (free wi-fi, purified water,boookcase with hundreds of books) just two blocks away from Granada's main square and most attractions. The breakfast every morning,served in a very beautiful and refreshing open atriun and garden, includes, the best coffee in town, fresh fruit juice and bread (every day different juice and bread), pancakes,french toast, cerials, omeletes, fresh fruits, marmelade,peanut butter,butter etc. The high ceiling rooms are modern, airy and light, equiped with air-condition and ceiling fans. The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool, decorated with various plants as well as a restaurant. The Hotel con Corazon and its staff stole our hearts. These people fight the "good cause."

This was a great place to stay. The rooms were clean and functional. Well decorated and had everything we needed and some things we didn't, we didn't use the air con. The communual areas of the hotel were very cool. Nice places to sit and have a drink, hammocks to chill in and a decent size pool to sit round and swim in. It is placed in a nice central location and the walk to the central plaza, and a number of places to eat and drink, is a 5 min stroll. Granada is a lovely old colonial town and is well worth a visit and Hotel Con Corazon is the perfect place to stay while visiting. Everyone at the hotel made us feel very welcome and were happy to talk about the education projects the money from the hotel was funding. Which as teachers we found particulary interesting. We only ate once in the evening at the hotel, which was a well sized portions and very tasty and provided an off menu option for my vegetarian girlfriend. Breakfast while we were there consisted of fruit, eggs bread and cereal and coffee. We did experience some power cuts while there so would recommend taking a torch. This advice is probably relevant to a stay anywhere in Nicaragua. Overall top marks.

Hotel Con Corazon is not my favorite hotel in Granada. It's my favorite hotel in the world. The place manages to achieve an unlikely balance between genuine friendliness and meticulous professionalism. The atmosphere inside the walls of Con Corazon, as Granada expats and long-term tourists call it, reminds me a little of an alhambra -- cool, calm, and quite to the bustle and dust of Nicaragua's colonial city just outside its walls.

While other hotels in its range (Hotel La Colonial, Hotel Alahambra, etc) seem to offer only medeival service but at baroque prices, Con Corazon is a modern standout. Its focus on giving back to the community -- in a literal sense, as profits go towards funding social sustainability projects -- there's also a sense that your money and vacation aren't only an indulgence (even if a well deserved one). Seeing groups of students learning English in the hotel's airy courtyard and even speaking to the excellent local staff is a heartening bit of inspiration.

The food is great. Breakfast hearty and fresh. The cocktails are well priced and refreshing. And the pool is crystalline, cool, and somehow seems like a necessity once you've dived in.

The current manager, Freek (pronounced Fregge, it's Dutch), meets and greets all the guests. I'm happy to now call him a friend. Free wi-fi, purified water, colorful rooms, and a fast laundry service are added bonuses.

As is obvious by this point, I recommend Con Corazon wholeheartedly. You will not regret the stay.

I stayed at the Hotel Con Corazon in July and loved it. In fact, I enjoyed Granada so much I went back in September. This hotel is the perfect place to stay in town. It is a five minute walk to Parque Centrale, so you are right in the middle of the action. The hotel is extremely clean and has everything you could need. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I plan on returning in November and will certainly stay here again. The fact that the procedes benefit local schools is even better.

After traveling around in Costa Rica for 2 weeks, Hotel Con Corazon arranged a pick up at the border directly to the hotel in the center of colourfull Granada. Our family-room was in fact 2 rooms conected by a very nice bathroom. Both rooms with tv and airco. Our kids enjoyed the swimming-pool, live-chess and hammocks. Breakfast and dinner (especially the gazpacho) are delicious. We only stayed for 2 nights, but if you want to see and experience everything in and around Granada, you should stay at least 4 nights. And ofcourse in hotel Con Corazon because all the benefits go to school projects.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, it was one of the most friendly places we stayed while in Nicaragua. The staff were really welcoming and helpful on arrival and the room was nice. It was slightly dark, but it was comfortable and clean and it had a really nice bathroom.

The breakfast was very good and the areas to sit outside the room where nice and relaxing and it has a nice bar.

We didn't find any bars or restuarants on the street immediately by the hotel, but the main square is only about three or four blocks away.
