About Norwin Bermudez
What is today Xanadu Mansion started out as our private residence, yet the residence was just too big to maintain yet we did not want to lose it. This led to its conversion to a hotel that combined what one would expect from a 5 star hotel plus the benefits of a private residence. Opening in 2012 Xanadu has consistently won TripAdvisor's Award for Excellence.
Norwin Bermudez purchased this Hotel Suites in 2004
Why Norwin Bermudez chose Granada
Casa Xanadu Mansion combines what one should expect from a 5 star hotel plus the comforts of a private residence combined into one. So today the traveler now has .three choices in Granada. (1) A hotel, (2) a private residence, or (3) Xanadu where we combined the best features of both a 5-stqr hotel and a private residence into one destination. Xanadu provides a sumptuous free breakfast for two each day, WiFi throughout all suites and common areas, Flat panel 40" TVs with Netflix and other channels in English with Spanish sub-titles. Each suite is air conditioned and has its own refrigerator. King and queen size pillow top bedding provide the ultimate in comfort. Several suites have two bedrooms for larger families, groups or small children. At the same time this is a residence with more than just spectacular sleeping areas. It is a Colonial mansion restored tastefully with art objects, paintings and antiques from around the world. There are numerous common area gardens and places to relax around the pool. At night there is an under water light show combined with music coming from the bar area where guests may order a tropical fruit drink, sodas, beer and/or wine. Here is a place to meet and chat with others in your group or family as well as other travelers like yourself. The original architecture of Xanadu has been respected. Many suites surprise guests when they look up to find 25 foot high vaulted ceilings that give a unique spaciousness to their suite.

Great location. Not a great place.
Whilst Xanadu is undeniably well located, it is dated and the accommodations are certainly not opulent as the listing title indicates. Definitely not a 5-star that competes with the best Granada has to offer as the listing suggests. The inattentive front desk staff were hard to find in the evenings. On one occasion one of our guests did not have his key and could not get anyone's attention for over a half hour (the staff was sleeping). Additionally, the rooms were not made on the last two mornings we were there. Housekeeping was nowhere to be found. It was an unfortunate start to our guests' first visit to Nicaragua. NOTE: if Xanadu was listed as a 3-star property without much in the way of amenities and didn't purport to offer "unimaginable attention to vacation services" this rating would be higher. I would suggest a rewrite.
Review of Casa Xanadu
Casa Xanadu is very exquisite and sits right in the heart of Granada. Charming interiors with plenty of foliage make for a very unique stay at Granada. It is centrally located and within minutes of walking from all of the major restaurants. The staff there is extremely able, polite and warm. However, it looks like the owner is not seriously invested in it. There are major problems with running hot water and general plumbing issues. We did not have hot water for more than 1 minute. These upgrades are extremely essential for the price we paid at Granada. It is with a heavy heart that I have to rate it at 3 stars despite the warmth and affection of the local staff.
Sorry. I am a bit confused. You did not have hot water for one full minute? That is it?
This place is outstanding! Amazing & I highly recommend coming to stay here. It is so convenient & the staff are hospitable! Will be coming back!
Thank you and your family so much for your visit and such a nice review. We wish you could have stayed longer!
I highly recommend Casa Xanadu, easy to walk to restaurants, market, the lake, etc. They can arrange excursions for you if you like. No worries. Excellent breakfast served by the pool, wow, what a nice way to start a day. Staff is so pleasant and the place is extremely cleaned. I would stay again in a heart beat. thanks to everyone to make our stay so enjoyable.
Casa xanadu is a wonderful place to stay while in Granada. It is very relaxing and comfortable. The staff is fabulous and makes every effort to make your stay enjoyable. Highly recommend Casa Xanadu.
A great place to stay!
I would recommend Casa Xanadu to anyone looking for a place to stay. It is ideal for couples, families, and small groups. The staff was absolutely second to none, extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortable. The breakfast served each morning is delicious and you couldn't ask for a nicer setting.
Casa Xanadu is a luxurious residence centrally located in the historic district of Granada, only a few steps to the oldest colonial church, Convento San Francisco where Granada's main museum is located. 2 blocks from central park & several other restored churches, museums, workshops. Casa Xanadu is within a very short walk to restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors, night spots and saloons. Yet we are 2 blocks from the main walking mall known as La Calzada street, close enough to be there in 5 minutes walking yet far enough away not to hear late night revelers.
