What a delight! One of those "best kept secrets" you need to share! A charming little hotel tucked into the heart of Granada, elegant and comfortable only a step away from the central park and yet an oasis of peace in full bloom with the cascade of bouginvilia overflowing over the pool and paintings everywhere. The owner, Étienne Vanoye, his wife and children were welcoming and discreet, attentive to our needs and very kind in offering us an afternoon on their island where we feasted, swam and rested in full view of breathtaking landscapes crowned by none other than a volcano, majestic - what a gift! The managers, experienced, multilingual, were equally welcoming to guests and managed the hotel with ease and grace. When an event or stay seems as if it is unfolding smoothly without a hitch, you just know it is because a lot of planning and behind the scenes work took place. The staff were friendly and quick to respond whether it be catering or cleaning or front desk and doormen. Rooms were lovely, spacious, comfortable beds, clean and decorated with taste. The breakfast was copious, delicious and very reasonably priced. The moment you set foot into the hotel, you felt safe, an important consideration for travelers anywhere in the world. From the top floor overlooking the pool and garden, we could see Granada, beautifully restored, Nicaraguan-tiled rooftops and church bells and Lake Nicaragua in the backdrop, reminding one of Havana. Bravo to Monsieur Vanoye for living his dream, for his art and science of the hotel business, his good humor, resourcefulness and stories about the beauty of Granada and Nicaragua. We enjoyed our stay and will make this home-away-from home ours when we return to Granada yearly.
