This was our first time to Nicaragua so we were a bit unsure of which hotel to choose. We couldn't have chosen better. Upon arrival, we were met immediately by the owners of the hotel (and their very well-behaved Cocker Spaniel, Emmit), who showed us to our spacious and well-appointed room: flat-screen TV with cable, air-conditioning and fan, king-sized bed with wonderful linens, balcony, and a huge shower. The only change I would make is better overhead lighting but there were several lamps to light up the room, when needed.
The location of the hotel was perfect: only two blocks to the main pedestrian street and three to parque central. This placed us in the middle of everything but, being at the end of a cul-de-sac, without the noise that a hotel on one of the main streets has. The breakfast each morning was freshly-brewed organic coffee, freshly-cut local fruits and freshly-squeezed orange juice. Demonstrating the lengths to which the staff went to please us, one morning, after indicating our desire to eat some of the local specialties, we were served nacatamales for breakfast.
The owners were always available for suggestions of tours, cities, restaurants and, of course, the best macua that can be found in Granada. The rooftop terrace provided a tranquil location for reading with wonderful views of the city, including the Cathedral. We initially planned to stay only two nights at the hotel but ended up staying four. A wonderful trip due in no small part to La Islita and its owners.
