“Little oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

We stayed here in January for a couple of nights. We had one of the pool side rooms, which was huge - a double bed and bunk beds, so meant for a family - with en suite. Great place, very secure, and nice communal atmosphere in kitchen and seating area. Gerry, the owner, is great - really friendly and helpful. The room was extremely good value, and for that reason we forgave the air con not working at the time of our visit. Having a pool to dip in during the heat of the day also a bonus! It really is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of central Granada, which is just a few steps from the front door.

I could only spend one night in Granada and I'm glad I chose this place. The owner will make you feel right at home and explain anything you need to know about the city. The room was clean and comfortable and even if you choose not to have air conditioning there will be more than enough fans provided to keep you cool. I think Casa del Agua provides very good value for the money. The only slight dent for me: I stayed in an upstairs room; there was heavy downpour through the night and the rain was very loud hitting the roof. I had earplugs so it didn't bother me much but just keep that in mind if you're expecting to visit during the rainy season.

Beautiful colonial house, great location, interesting and informative host. Gerry, the owner, is offering a unique experience at an affordable price. You can borrow a bike, take a dip in the pool, use the computer, or just enjoy the architecture.

Stayed in the lil apartment in the front. Was very comfortable and roomy. We stayed there for our 3 day visa trip to Granada. The owner Gerry mentioned that he gives a discount for people doing that and they stay the full 3 days with him. Nice to save some money. It's right in the heart of downtown, so walking distance to many places. Ask about the pub trivia night. We made a team with people staying at the hotel. Didn't win this time, but we did a good job! We'll stay here again.

Casa del Agua was the best spot we found in Nicaragua. First of all, the place cannot be more beautiful. Its a colonial house, carefully decorated and with a wonderful pool that looks like heaven after a hot day in the city. The host, Gerry, is one of the nicest persons we met. He makes you feel at home. The first moment you enter casa del agua, he gives you your key set and all the indications: basically, take care of the place as if it was your house; in the same way, you have access to free bikes, free computer, coffee, pure water, even fruits if you want. The bedrooms are gorgeous, the beds cannot be more comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. If you need more towels than the ones you find in the room, you have free access to the home closet where you find tons of clean towels. Nice TVs in the bedroom in case you want to watch a movie ( free movies as well! ). Moreover, Casa del Agua is located really close to the Cathedral ( 100 meters from the main square) and la Calzada. 100% recommended!

Room Tip: bring cash!

We spent a week in Nicaragua and had to compare and find places to stay at in Granada, León, Poneloya Beach and San Juan del Sur. After visiting these places we have to say that the best experience was in Casa del Agua. A beautiful house with all the amenities you need (nice rooms, clean and complete kitchen, AC, Wifi, pool, bikes,very secure), close to the center of the town (half block away from the Catedral) with a great host and with a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. We even decided to go back to Casa del Agua at the end of the trip before going back home. The owner (Gerry) is a great host, when you check in he handles you a Granada Map and shows you the places you should visit. He also gives you tips about restaurants, places to go and places not to go, markets and all you need to know to start feeling that Granada is your home town. Room price is really good, you won't be disappointed. Don't go there if you're looking for a party hostel with music out loud the whole day and young backpackers drinking and chatting in the place all of the time. This is a quite place, the kind you would look for if you're planning to relax and scape from the crowd and the city noise. The only minor problem we had was with the laundry service, we asked for some clothes to be washed and we got them back with a nice smell, but they didn't look washed at all.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was exactly what we were looking for. Very relaxed, great service from the owner (Gerry) who told us all about Granada. We are allowed to use is computer and the kitchen for whatever we needed. Nice rooms with a great pool in the middle of the house. Also very good located, 100m from the main plaza.
