This was the fourth stay at this property for my husband and I. It is definately the best value for your money in Granada. The staff is very friendly and accomodating expecially Nelson the bellhop. Greets us like we are his friends. The rooms are large and very clean. Spacious feeling with the high ceilings and balcony doors that opened to over look the beautiful pool. The beds are always comfortable along with nice firm pillows. Nice touches such as an in room safe, luggage rack and hotel robes are a very nice touch. The complimentary breakfast is by far the best that any hotel in Granada offers! You can have a cooked to order omlette, choose from traditional Nica breakfast fare along with plenty of fresh fruits and cereals served around the pool area. The pool is very clean and we observed the testing of the water's cleanliness while breakfasting. The hotel itself is lovely in architecture and design. You can't beat the location right on the central park's edge. Noise has never been a factor there. We come here 3-4 times throught the year and highly recommend it to others.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband, adult son and another couple of friends. We were all thrilled with the accommodation and echo the sentiments of previous reviewers. Best location in Granada, luxurious furnishings, beautiful common areas, terrific staff (especially Javier and Nelson), delicious buffet breakfast, free internet. A reasonable price for what you get. It is worth paying a premium to get a front room with a large balcony overlooking the central square. Watching the local actions from there provides great entertainment all day.

Plaza Colon is a special place- it has a fabulous bilingual staff, clean rooms, lovely surroundings, safe and comfortable accommodations, and more amenities than any other hotel in Nicaragua. Their breakfasts are included and include fabulous treats, such as vanilla bread pudding, typical nicaraguan breakfast, fresh fruit, granola, breakfast burrito, fried green tomatoes with corn grits, etc. They offer free internet and free computers. The staff is wonderful- they will help arrange anything you need and offer it at prices similar to anywhere else you would stay. If available, the balcony rooms overlooking the central plaza are outstanding! Enjoy!

Our California family of five visited Granada Dec 30-Jan 3 and loved it. The hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed at; beauty, location, service, rooms, pool, etc. It is just outstanding. I understand from talking with fellow equally happy tourists that Granada is blessed with good hotel choices, but you will not go wrong with Plaza Colon. BTW, we had a great time in Granada; excellent restaurants, many nearby activities, beautiful city, etc. It is a must visit for any Nicaraguan itinerary. We met Favio and Carlos who are both bilingual, have a large van and are good guides; they took us to and from the airport and included several tour stops along the way. We also hired them for an entire day of beach touring. You can reach them at favioxpress@yahoo.com.nic or 505-88605362. We did the cloud forest/ziplining which was the best and toured the pacific coast including some great surfing beaches. Granada is well situated as both a destination on its own but within an easy drive of many activities. Highly recommend it.

Brilliant location overlooking the horses and carts of the main square. NIce room for 4 at a reasonable price. Swimming pool was small but very pleasant. Very good breakfasts. Really helpful staff: Bell boy was a fantastic fixer and the receptionist was super-efficient in finding me a good dentist (and taxi to take me there) when I broke a tooth in half - it was all fixed within 2 hours.

A great place to stay. Super nice staff. A little loud outside, but hey, it was the week between Christmas and new years.
