“Beautiful, quiet ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2011

This is a gem. Take a look at our room (great AC, overhead fan ... and an amazing bathroom). After walking and enjoying the Colonial town of Granada ... the small pool in the garden courtyard was a perfect end to each day. Casa Cubana is a short cab ride to the center of the city ... but it's only about an easy ten block walk. We felt the location was great ... close to restaurants, but seemed tucked away and was very quiet. There are just four rooms and the guests tended to join to share their plans for the day at the large breakfast table, and again, at the end of their day in the courtyard before heading out to dinner. Breakfast was terrific. Amanda, the manager, is the chef ... and she also knows all kinds of places to see and things to do ... she's great resource.

From the outside, this Colonial Nicaraguan boutique hotel looks pretty but unassuming. Once inside, you realize what a jewel it is. Beautiful garden courtyard and pool with a view from every elegant room, and the rooms are outstanding. They definitely qualify as suites, since they are large, with seating areas, walk-in closets and HIGH ceilings! Mine looked to be 30' high. I had a very comfortable four poster bed, and understand all the beautiful furniture was custom made by local craftsmen. I felt like a Princess!

The breakfast which was included in the rate was sumptious and delicious. French toast with fresh tropical fruit was one of the choices. The managing partner, Amanda Egidio, was welcoming and helpful and as accommodating as a concierge in recommending local restaurants and points of interest. This treasure was the highlight of my trip and I plan to return next year for a longer stay!

As a lone traveler I was delighted to find this recommended B&B, and felt more like a personal guest in an elegant private home. I hugely enjoyed my stay and would recommend Casa Cubana to anyone who would appreciate good value, quality and comfort whilst they are visiting Granada. Located a few minutes walk from the smells and noise of the centre of Granada, this newly refurbished old colonial style dwelling is an oasis of beauty and calm as you enter an elegant courtyard packed with tropical flowers around a most welcome refreshing little pool, great after a day's sight seeing. I even saw a humming bird hovering over one of the many colourful flowers. The cool, high ceilinged rooms have all been equipped with comfortable beds, big flatscreen cable TV, hot shower, period furniture, cooling fans, and A/C if you need it, which I did not. As there are only four rooms, overcrowding was not an issue, and there are comfortable seating areas around the garden in the shade to sit and relax, with WiFi internet connection which works well.

I enjoyed the open plan dining area overlooking the garden whilst having my fantastic breakfasts skillfully prepared by the very knowledgable Amanda. She could not have been more helpful, with advice on local sights and activities. I will happily return and wish this new venture well for the future.

I have stayed at quite a few very nice boutique hotels, mostly in Europe, and must say that Casa Cubana in Granada, Nicaragua ranks at the top of them all. A former colonial home once owned by a Cuban doctor (hence the name), this hotel is gorgeous: four HUGE, well-appointed bedrooms (two of them with lofts) surround a courtyard with a lush, tropical garden and small swimming pool plus hammocks and comfy chairs that are great for relaxing with a book and a cool drink. All of the rooms are beautiful but I especially liked the one I stayed in ("Saffron" on the second floor) with tall French doors, a Queen bed (excellent mattress), a sitting area, and a table perfect for writing which I did each morning before breakfast (yum!) or a dip in the pool. Can't say enough good things about this hotel. I'd go back in a heartbeat. In fact, I'm already looking forward to my next stay here.

Casa Cubana was recommended by a friend from Managua. Although some rooms were not yet fully complete, the finished rooms as well as the open courtyard garden and pool were tasteful and elegantly appointed. The owners, Uli and Lesley, are very friendly, knowledgeable about Granada and are delightful conversationalists. The included breakfasts provided by the manager, Amanda, high quality, varied and tasty.
We would definitely go back again.

My fiancée and I had been traveling around Nicaragua for a month before happening upon Casa Cubana. We found out about this hidden gem from a recommendation of someone we met on Laguna de Apoyo.

Arriving at Casa Cubana was like arriving at an oasis. Lesley and Uli (the owners) welcomed us into their home, as it is more like staying at a friends house than actually staying in a hotel. The inner court yard is beautifully landscaped complete with a quaint little pool. The location only has 4 suites so you'll never have to worry about over-crowding or too much noise.

We stayed in the Ginger suite and loved it! It was our last night in Nicaragua and the best night of sleep we had in a month! The suite is two floors: bottom floor is the living room area with a plasma TV, a couch, love seat, desk area, and amazing bathroom (hot water and plenty of water pressure!); the top floor is reached by a spiral staircase where you'll find a very comfortable bed. Complete with air conditioning, it makes for a great nights sleep.

Breakfast is included and you won't be disappointed, ask for the Dragon Detox smoothie! We were sad to leave Casa Cubana, the service is impeccable, with Lesley and Uli and their phenomenal hospitality!

I was so glad to come across Casa Cubana boutique hotel in Granada, Nicaragua.It is a really elegant hotel that seems to get the combination right of home comfort and understated luxury, with a lot of old world colonial style . The place is clearly loved and cared for by the host, Amanda. She is fun and vivacious and even a trained chef, so the breakfasts were delious! She is a true professional and knows the area well, so helped me to plan my activities and site seeing. It was fun to chat to Gloria, the rescue bird!. The rooms are very spacious with high ceilings. I stayed in the Safrron room which is on the first floor and oerlooks the pool, even with a view of the volcanic island of Ometepe. My bed was very grand, a gold painted, hand made iron canopy bed - bliss!. Thank you for all your care and attention Amanada, it was a real pleaure to meet you and stay in a truely wonderful hotel. I plan to return one day . Fiona Tyndall ( England)
