“The best stay during our roundtrip in Nicaragua”
Reviewed 24 August 2010

Me and my husband have been making a three weeks roundtrip in Nicaragua.
We stayed in nature lodges and small hotels recomended by other travelers.
We loved our stay in Granada and espacialy in hotel Patio Del Malinche. The hotel
owners and their family did all the best they could to make our stay confortable and
they also give us great tips about things to do in and around Granada. Reservations
were made to visit the Masaya volcano and the Isletas. At night we could park our rental car in a secured parking nearby the hotel supervised by a Nicaraguan couple.
We would espcialy recomend the tropical fruit desert from this hotel.

This hotel was not listed in our copy of the Lonley Planet (2005 I think). The hotel was an old Spanish colonial home in pre-Panama Canal days when Granada was a major port connected to the Pacific via the San Juan river and lake Nicaragua. There is a beautiful green courtyard with tables and a hammock. This is where the included breakfast is served and it was great. The rooms are situated around the pool, and their is a bar with a nice cocktail menu. FREE internet, and they will fill your water bottles up for FREE as well! The owners and staff are all super friendly and went out of their way a number of times for us. They ordered us a hammock just like theirs from Masaya when we inquired, gave us ice cream topped with Flor de Cana one night for no reason. Can't say enough about this place. We will definitely return!

We traveled for 2 plus weeks throughout Central America, and decided to splurge on one place in Granada, Nicaragua.... and, I am glad we did..... Patio Del Malinche is Fantastic!!!! Friendly staff, Friendly Owners- it was clear that everyone takes a lot of pride in what they do on a day in and day out basis.... and the breakfast, well, there is simply not a better way to start the day....
The best part, is that the owners are socially and environmentall concious, and engage in best practices to help build a better community within Granada. It was refreshing to stay at a place that is simply not profit driven. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone, regardless of age or the type of travel you are engaged in.

Most people in Granada just know this hotel as Malinche. it's a restored colonial house that now has about 16 or so rooms. There are two stories surrounding a carefully landscaped courtyard with chairs, hammocks and a small pool. I stayed five nights while in Nicaragua. The grounds and my room were extremely clean, it was the low season while I was there but I have to give them credit for running such a tight ship. There is a bar/kitchen that can serve drinks or fill up your water jug for free all day. My room was not large, mostly just room for a bed and small table but I didn't need any more since it was just me. The bathroom and shower were very modern and seemed new. The room had a/c, ceiling fan and a small tv. A free breakfast comes with the room rate and was served in a second beautiful courtyard. The front desk staff was helpful in planning my activities and working on further travel plans. The location is about two blocks from the cathedral and central plaza. It worked out well, it was close enough to walk to all the food and bars but a few streets over and quiet. This hotel exceeded my expectations and I'll definitely be back. also, the wifi here was great.

I would say that out of all of our hotels that we stayed at in Costa Rica and Nicaragua in our last trip, Hotel Patio del Malinche was by far the best. The hotel itself was impeccable and felt like a home away from home. The landscape and design made you feel extremely relaxed and right at home in the middle of a busy city.

The highlight of this hotel was actually its staff. Everyone there was extremely polite, professional, and helpful. They truly went out of their way for any request, no matter how simple or complex. I have never been to a hotel where the owners were there everyday and made sure that they gave their undivided attention to their guests.

Thank you Hotel Patio del Malinche for making my trip such a memorable experience!

We love Patio Malinche, We've been to Nicaragua 8 times and 7 of the 8 stayed with Ramone and Lidia. This is the first time we've been to Nicaragua with family and were traveling with a party of 10, including a toddler (15 months) They accomodated every detail, milk, the microbus, arrangements for sightseeing, recommendations, and getting us back to the airport at 4:30AM.
The Hotel is where my true vacation begins as every detail is tended to.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
More than a place in the world, a house is a place in one's heart. El Patio del Malinche is more than just another hotel, it's a dream come true. Our interest to live in a different culture and to get to know new horizons took us to the ancient town of Granada. The sun-dried bricks of Granada's old walls and the hospitality of its people bewitched us. By restoring an old colonial house we relived a life of peace and serenity created by its inside patios full of history. We hope our guests will be able to revive and share with us the atmosphere of other times. We will be delighted to share our house, where life pours from every corner. ... more   less
