Casa San Francisco is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Granada. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is nice and quiet, the pool area is relaxing and calming. Our room had exotic, beautiful tile and it was so charming. We enjoyed our private balcony with a great view.
The food at the restaurant was delicious and if you stay here your made to order, hot breakfast is included. Having access to the internet was an added bonus, we were able to keep in touch with family in the States. I highly recommed this vacation spot, after all we have been back three times and each time was perfect.

My family LOVED Casa San Francisco. We made out reservations there on the advice of friends and we were so pleased! The hotel is charming and the staff makes you feel like family. We stayed there 6 nights, and then went to another destination, and then returned to CSF for our final night. We felt like we were coming back to a family reunion, everyone was so delighted to see us again.The daily breakfasts are delicious. We ate most meals in the hotel restaurant because the food was exquisite, and pretty much beat out every other restaurant we tried. We loved having drinks in the little bar, and the staff helped us with everything-from taxi service back and forth to the airport to arranging excursions and a driver. Our rooms were charming, clean and comfortably and the courtyard pool refreshing, and we enjoyed daily breakfast with the two resident turtles.
We hope to return soon! Best vacation ever!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. The rooms next to the pool have better WiFi

This hotel was a recommendation from a colleague so I was excited to see it - and was so happy for the quaint quiet location - the city is really really HOT, but the rooms, pool and common areas are NOT! Franklin made sure I had what I needed from the bar - Elena made sure we had what we needed for excursions - must do's the isleta kayak tour from Nicaagua Dulce and Mombacho Volcano with Jovanni - The two nights it rained the hotel turtles all came out to say hello in the garden...

Boutique hotel - atually more like a hacienda - with an inviting courtyard and resident parrots. Excellent service and very helpful managaer who is knowlegeable about the area. Trips are more expensive than ones you canget elsewher. Good resraurant although more fresh fruit and variety at breakfast would be good.

Room Tip: upper level in the back quiet..

We stayed at Casa San Francisco twice with our toddler on a family holiday and couldn't recommend it enough. It was very comfortable, great location, the staff were all extremely helpful and charming, the food was delicious and I loved the feel of the hotel - beautifully designed.

Granada, Nicaragua during the heat of the dry season can be challenging to a couple of first time visitors from Maine, and the "Casa San Fran" quickly became our home away from home. Sisters, Terry and Nancy, pulled out all the stops to make my partner and I feel welcomed, comfortable, and at home. The staff was at all times professional and friendly, doing all that was necessary to make sure our first impression of their hotel and city were the best. They arranged for English speaking airport transport to and from the airport, which as non Spanish speaking visitors we appreciated. Especially great was the English speaking tour guide they arranged for us to Volcan Mombacho tour, the La Islatas boat tour on Lake Nicaragua, and the forest canopy zipline tour! Be sure to ask for Geovanny if you would like the best and most informative guided tours anywhere in the region. His knowledge made everything so much more enjoyable and interesting. And everything was arranged through the front desk at this charming hotel. Lastly, do not leave Granada without having at least one dinner at Casa San Francisco's restaurant - Los Chocoyos (though I suspect you will be back for more). Being former New Yorkers we have had the good fortune to eat at some very fine restaurants from time to time, but I have to say that the menu at Los Chocoyos would stand up to the finest restuarants anywhere in the world! Everything, I mean EVERYTHING on their menu was delicious!

Yes, I would recommend the Casa San Francisco to anyone planning a visit to Nicaragua. Visit there website, call their US number if you're coming from stateside, or email. They answered all my questions and my first stay was great! So much so that after touring the southwest corner of Nicaragua we have returned for a couple of days before we return home!

I have been to Granada, Nicaragua many times this past year, and I always stay at the Casa San Francisco Hotel. The design and layout of the hotel and restaurant make for an inspiring introduction to one of the best things about Granada- shaded courtyards with beautiful gardens, open to verandas where most daily activities take place. One of the best things about this hotel is its staff, always friendly and helpful. There is the sense of a small community surrounding this hotel, and you will meet both visitors and local residents. The food in the restaurant is excellent, and make sure to try the caipirinha's during happy hour! There are several courtyards, and a roof terrace with a magnificent view of the volcano and the convent and church (from Robert M).
