Hotel La Mar Dulce
Ranked #31 of 45 Hotels in Granada
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We could not have enjoyed this hotel more. It was clean, quiet (for Central America), beautiful. Staff were the most helpful and friendly I have encountered. The pool area is beautiful. We would love to stay here again. My only very minor complaint would be no hot water showers as advertised, but after a couple showers and being out in the heat of Granada it is actually refreshing taking a cool shower.

We stayed there for one night in July 2013 and it was fine. We did not need air conditioning. It cost $40 for my wife and I and our 13 year old daughter. The room was a little small with two double beds. The usual cold water shower was fine. The pool; was fine, I could swim two or three strokes across it. Breakfast was coffee with toast in a toaster with guayaba jam and margarine. There were cabinets in the room where we could put our stuff, which was nice. We had a room right near the pool. The people were fine. They replaced a light bulb in the over head light when there was only one bulb, making it hard to read.

Room Tip: Our room was the one on the left as you face the pool. One other tip, for cheap bottled water, go r...

What a pleasant surprise. This hotel sits outside of the downtown area by a few blocks. It contributed to the quietness. Also this allowed us to walk through the local neighborhood and watch the children playing soccer in the street. The hotel was immaculate and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was sparklingly clean and a great way to cool off after a hot day in Granada. The price was more than reasonable and the air conditioning was a great treat. We would love to stay there again.

We were three young girls traveling in Nicaragua and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Hotel La Mar Dulce. The staff was very helpful and very nice - the breakfast was tasty and the rooms were perfect! The pool was also beautiful and extremely refreshing. The hotel was peaceful - a nice getaway from the hustle of downtown. It was located on the outskirts of the main square in Granada...but a 10 minute walk brought us there no problem. We really enjoyed this walk because we got to explore Granada in its entirety and learn the streets relatively quickly. Overall, we loved this small hotel and would definitely go back. It was incredible!

The first thing you should know--- this place is not easy to find! Streets in Granada aren't named/marked and getting directions from locals is no easy feat (especially when arriving on a dark Saturday night!). However, we found during the light of day that there were signs around town for the hotel... but many of the signs had been picked up and moved so the arrows were pointing in the wrong direction...). Definitely know where you are going before you head into town for this place.

Once we found it, however- Hotel La Mar Dulce was WONDERFUL!!! The room was clean (and cool! Three cheers for air conditioning!). They cleaned it while we explored the town in the morning, cooked us a wonderful fresh breakfasts, and were exceedingly warm and attentive to any of our needs/requests.

I will definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Granada--- just make sure you are very sure of where you are going before you head into town!

Room Tip: balcony rooms are nice--- both our safe and our air conditioning remote were out of battery power wh...

Staff was very nice, rooms are 3 star level in the US rating and clean. Pretty difficult to find the location because it is in a small street, in a residential area, with few street lights so you better find the hotel before dawn.
Breakfast was delicious but slow service, don't be in a rush to get served!

We stayed at La Mar Dulce on a visa renewal over Easter weekend. It was a delightful respite after a day of touring in the hot Nicaraguan sun. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well air-conditioned. The pool was clean and refreshing and the beautiful landscaping contributed to a very pleasant, relaxing time. Just a few short blocks away was a small shopping center with pharmacy, grocery, and clothing store for those last-minute items you may need. It's location was a bit away from the town square, so if you want everything at your doorstop, this is not the place for you. However, if you want an intimate hotel with an excellent breakfast to start your day amidst pleasant surroundings while you enjoy that afternoon cocktail, by all means stay at La Mar Dulce.
