I only had one night to stay in Granada on my way down to San Juan del Sur. That's a shame, since it meant that I only had a one night stay at La Gran Francia. The staff were very gracious and kind. My Spanish is good, not great, but we were able to communicate fairly well and all with good humor and an obvious desire on their part to make my stay comfortable. The room was charming, comfortable, and had a lovely view of the top of the cathedral. The TV wasn't plugged in or hooked up to the cable, but it could have been had I asked. I decided I didn't need it. My one disappointment was with the bath/shower. I couldn't get enough water flow to draw a bath in less than an hour, and the shower never did get beyond tepid. Too bad after a long day of sticky travel. But I had a very nice dinner in the restaurant, where I was the only guest that night. And breakfast the next morning was healthy, pretty, substantial and included. The property itself is part of Granada history and is beautifully maintained. Staying here was a visual pleasure and a perfect start to my great Nicaraguan vacation.
