“Beautiful facility”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2008

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.

  • Liked — quality design

Hotel Dario in Granada is WONDERFUL! Mr. Luigi Roy the General Manager seems very worldly and was very helpful when we had questions. The restaurant staff, maintenance, etc. were all friendly, kind and very helpful. Hotel Dario is beautiful... the building is a historic building, but the rooms are very modern, clean, great amenities, has A/C, satellite tv, internet, etc, but still has wonderful charm. After a day walking in town, when it is hot, and you're tired, trust me it will be a great PLEASURE to return to a great hotel, such as Hotel Dario. The bathrooms are the best I've seen in Nicaragua! The rooms even have a bathTUB! The woodwork, the decor, everything is beautiful here. We ate dinner at the restaurant in Hotel Dario and it was delicious and the service was so good I felt guilty because the wait staff are very attentive to every need...not use to it in the USA. It is nice to have a safe, clean, beautiful hotel to go to, after a long day or after roughing it elsewhere. Treat yourself to a historic, beautiful, hotel... I loved Hotel Dario. The location in Granada is perfect.

  • Liked — The beautiful historic architecture of the building, courtyard, and the kind staff.
