After 3 other hotels in Managua and Granada, I can say with certainty this hotel tries harder and far exceeds every other place. The service is with a smile, at once helpful and relevant. I have been here 2 weeks and have one more to go. On such an extended stay you want a/c that works as it should every day, hot water every day, breakfast made to order every day and wi-fi in your room that works every day. When you go to sleep in a bed that is not comfortable or pillows right out of the boarding houses of the last century you wake up and see the smaller then some pools in our own homes, the breakfast that may be a bit limited, etc. But when it is as comfortable as it is at Plaza Colon, you see fresh omelettes being made to order, Carlos the bellman asking if you need anything and meaning it, Victor or Roberto at the front desk ready and able to to assist you, Virginia in guest services happy to recommend a restaurant, a place to visit or more. Finally, the great lady of the hotel, obviously the back-bone of the service to the guest first feeling you have is Maria, the general manager -- forever smiling, helpful and very informative about all things good and that is still a stretch in Granada. She is involved in the community, with kids, improving lives to raise the pride and success of the city's youth. Though she never offered, when asked Maria was full of resources on where I could help out. A local school that needed backpacks, helping me wrangle up 100 Happy meals from McD's when I couldn't articulate it well enough in my own Spanglish. Whether it is for a night, a week or a month -- you are throwing away money and missing an opportunity to meet authentic locals and place to call home while in Nicaragua.
