We stumbled across the Dario while checking out there restaurant. It is beautiful with two inner court yards that have a large fountain and pool. The rooms away from the street are some of the best that we saw in all of Nicaragua. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the reception staff were superb. Anna, the manager now, went out of her way on several occasions to help us. She is very genuine and really works closely with her staff to bring the best to her guests.
We did encounter one sever noise issue with a wedding in the hotel. They did what they could to take care of us and made it up to us. They are working to remedy this issue in the future.
Again, this is an oasis in Granada. We stayed there longer than we had planned on, because it was such a treat. The breakfast that comes with the room was quite good. Ask for the options from the kitchen. The restaurant in the hotel is also good enough to eat in. There is free internet, hot water, satelite TV, great beds and you are in the center of Granada.
We stayed in La Gran Francia, Casa San Francisco and here at different times over a month. This was the nicest.
