This was the first stop on our honeymoon. The staff was very helpful, friendly and personable. Breakfasts were delicious, coffee was great and when we arrived on the first afternoon they had a nice beverage waiting for us. The hotel is lovely, it has an old estate fill with very high ceilings, tall doorways, long drapes, antique king four post bed, pool, garden and a great staff! Our room was street side, and the hotel is located on a busy intersection. We fell a sleep both nights to Nicaraguans honking their horns through the intersection and woke up to it, that would be my only complaint. It was a lovely place to stay and it gave me a great feel for Granada.

Beautifully restored colonial treasure in the heart of Granada, a block from the main square. The Hotel was beautiful and immaculately appointed minimalist with authentic era antiques. It has a figure 8 layout with the rooms surrounding two courtyards one which is a garden and the other which has a pool.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have air conditioning so if this is not the experience you are looking for be advised.

This hotel is a old colonial home redone as a hotel. Beautiful garden courtyards, 12 foot doors, and the most comfortable beds in Nicaragua I suspect. Very attentive staff but not obtrusive. The bathrooms are separate from your room: you have a private bath, you just have to walk down the corridor to get there. Seems a bit weird at first but not a problem. Had to do this to protect the integrity of the old home where the original rooms had no plumbing.

Downsides at La Bocona would be street noise early evening and early am. And can't get internet in the room: have to sit in the lovely courtyard to get wi-fi. Not really a problem.

No TV at La Bocona! I love it.

Very nice tea service at 4pm.

Best place I have stayed at in Nicaragua. Will return there in the future.

We travelled to Granada over Memorial Day 2012, thanks to a deal on JetSetter. I contacted Nadine several times for details and to book services ahead of time (airport transfers, spa treatments, excursions). This incredible lady is a true asset to the hospitality industry and to Granada. Full of knowledge and good suggestions, inquisitive about our wants, very detailed-oriented, great back and forth about how to make this a memorable trip (we were celebrating my partner's birthday that weekend) and above all matter of fact and honest. She was totally on target, her advice and warmth absolutely made a difference to our trip. She runs the hotel very efficiently and you can tell all the staff genuinely strived to make our trip special.

We had the double-bed room, never been to such a big room. As the rooms actually were designed to open to the street as well as to the interior patio, you do hear a bit of street noise sometimes. It did not bothered me, found it charming actually, but can see it might tick others off. You can tell the renovations do follow historical standards, very well done. The bathrooms are not in-suite, but you know this clearly beforehand. Spacious, well functioning and clean. The warm water (no need for it really!) worked well too. I personally liked this out of the ordinary set up.

The Spa is out of this world, a must after a day exploring the volcanoes or lake. Great massages, the staff knows what they are doing. We totally recommend them.

The weather was really warm, but the pool helped a lot. Olga's breakfast specialties and delicious afternoon snacks still bring a smile to my face. The tour outfit Nadine recommended delivered excellent adventures and the restaurants in Granada did not dissapoint. We really enjoyed the slow-pace, kind of back in time feel of the town too. Wish we had taken one of the many carriage rides we were offered, it is a common way to travel within the city. Even during a night time black-out due to electrical storms, we feel safe wondering about town in the dark. Kind of unexpected happenings that helped make the trip extraordinary.

Nadine, you are the best!!! Looking for the next chance to explore Nicaragua from your hidden gem of a hotel.

We stayed for 1 night and really enjoyed it. The facilities are extremely charming and the staff is very helpful. The spa/message facilities are incredible and a great value. The location is well placed, but the best quality of all is the owner who is actively trying to give back to the community. We enthusiastically recommend Bocona.

On behalf of the owner, thank you so much for the lovely comment about giving back.

Community development is foremost on our minds here at La Bocona. As you know, we donate 50% of all income to a local children's educational center that also provides more than one hundred thousand meals a year to underprivileged community members of all ages.

Often times, travelers express that they would like to contribute their time or skills to the community but, may not speak Spanish or have enough time to really involve themselves in volunteer work. Staying at our hotel, you have directly, positively affected the lives of many local families.

Thank you so much for your stay and for your review. We are happy to have had the chance to host you!
