My husband and I, along with our thirteen year old nephew, stayed at the Hotel Plaza Colon for three nights from 1/23-1/26. We stayed in the suite, which I don't think has had much written about it. This was our first trip with our nephew, so the suite was perfect for us. It consists of three rooms and two bathrooms: two very similar bedrooms, both with a queen sized bed and each with its own bathroom, as well as a large living room with wet bar and refrigerator. There is also a large balcony overlooking the town plaza. The suite was spacious and extremely comfortable.
The employees of this hotel are wonderful: helpful, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Our nephew had a stomach bug for 24 hours and they could not have been more helpful and kind to us. They are also great about arranging tours, making restaurant recommendations, etc. One comment: we were very disappointed in the one restaurant we tried that was NOT on the list recommended by our hotel, and we feel we learned the hard way to stick to their recommendations, all of which were perfect.
Breakfast was amazing: made to order eggs plus a beautiful variety of hot dishes: oatmeal, bacon, sausage, potatoes, gallo pinto, tamales, guava french toast, etc. etc. Fresh fruit, juices, breads - it was really really nice.
There is a bar and a cafe on the main level. We visited both and enjoyed both. The pool and courtyard are beautiful and we swam every day.
We have stayed at other hotels in Grenada in the past and we found the Plaza Colon to have the best location and the nicest breakfast.
Comments about noise were surprising to me because the pool and courtyard side seemed very quiet and I did not find the plaza side to be loud at all - and I am a light sleeper. Honestly, no one should travel without earplugs or a white noise machine (we take both everywhere) but we didn't need them here.
