The Alhambra is right on the plaza in Granada. Staff is excellent. By Nicaraguan standards, it is luxury. It is not luxurious. But this is Nicaragua, and if you wanted luxury, why did you go to Nicaragua? If you want to meet wonderful, kind, open, people, then Nicaragua is the country and the Alhambra is the place. Air con works sometimes, but the electricity in all Nicaraguan cities, including Granada, is shut off for hours each day. Sheets, amenities, pool, beds? Better than elsewhere in Granada and don't be so fussy. At the Alhambra, you can sit in rockers and people watch, or eat and drink at what may be the single best location in the country. Food is very good too. The beer and rum is even better. We paid under $40/night. Granada is small and isn't elegant colonial town like you'll find in Mexico. It is poor and the roads in and out are full of oxen and horses, etc. If you want luxury, Nicaragua isn't for you. Go to Miami. But if you like or love Central and South America, and if you like people who still take the time to visit one another, this is the place. You'll meet lots of people. Nicaraguans smile at you, and they mean it. When I first got to the Hotel Alhambra, I wondered why it got such good reviews. Three days there and now I know. The first day away and we missed it already. Still do.
