“Lovely Space, Service Could Be Improved”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Located on Calle La Calzada in Granada, Nicaragua, the Hotel Dario is in a prime location to the Central Park, churches and all things touristy. A lovely interior patio with fountain, pool and waterfall put your mind at ease. While the food at the restaurant and cafe were good, service could be improved and details attended. One disappointment was that the Hotel Dario is one of the finer hotels but were unable to change a $100 U.S. bill into samller bills.

Although I've only eaten at the restaurant & coffee shop at the hotel, it is on my list of places to stay when next in Granada. Our evening meal rated as one of the best eating places of our stay in Granada & the coffee sheer delight - cakes / postres to die for. Sight right in the middle of town

There was great customer service when due to unexpected events, I could not keep my reservation at this hotel. The sales manager was quick in re-scheduling the reservation and did not seem upset at all for this change of day. The hotel is beautiful, the people are very kind and friendly. It is located in the main tourist street in Granada.

Room Tip: Ask for ground level floor rooms.

We stayed at this hotel in November 2011. The location was great. Walking distance to the town square. The service and cleanliness of the rooms was amazing. I would definitely return and stay here again. The hotel was very well mantained. Wifi was available which was nice to keep in touch with family. Granada is gorgeous.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony next to the main street and it gets loud because alot is going on. We...

This hotel experience is classic - elegant, spacious rooms with private balconies overlooking Mombacho volcano. Set on a charming street off Grenada's main square - the city was alive all hours throughout our holiday visit. The hotel could use more English speaking staff, however, the gracious young man who assisted us with airport transfer at the last minute in the wee hours of Christmas Eve overcame language barriers to meet our every need.

Room Tip: request a balcony room unless you want to sleep - the party never stops!
