  • Granada Paradise!

    "My husband, two kids (15 and 11) and I stayed at Hotel Xalteva for a week. We travel a great deal and we're extremely adventurous. We came to Granda to go volcano boarding and chose Granada as our home base. Our experience at Hotel Xalteva was absolutely amazing! I can't rave about it more. The location is in the middle of Granda, but you're encapsulated in an oasis of beauty! The hotel staff is first class. To say they're helpful, is a huge understatement. The continental breakfast under the pergola is divine and includes an assortment of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cakes, bread, fresh juice and coffee. It's perfection! The condos are impeccably clean and I'm picky! The condos are laid out well, beautiful, clean and have everything you need. I highly suggest arranging a home cooked meal brought in. The mother-in-law of Melissa, the manager, is am amazing cook. She made us rice, plantains, beans, pice de gallo, chicken, potatoes and carrots. We feasted on that for days! Shear heaven and perfect for us because our kids get sick of eating out. To reiterate, the staff (Melissa, Tania, Anna, Louis, etc.) are top notch. If you need anything, they will get it for you or make it happen. The pool is fantastic! I heard it's the best pool in Granada and I believe it. There's a guard at night who closes the doors at 8:30PM. You can ring the bell to get in. in other words, it's completely secure. You can easily walk to town, restaurants, the market, etc. I always felt safe in Nicaragua and we traveled to Leon, San Juan Del Sur, throughout Managua, Apoyo Lagoon, Mombacho and more. My 15 year old daughter declared this her favorite trip ever and that's saying a lot. A great deal of that has to do with Hotel Xalteva. If you're considering Nicaragua, you must stay here even if just for a few nights. I would like to be here for months! I can't wait to go back someday. One last thing-Melissa arranged for us to tour a school in the Islets. Amazing experience! That afternoon, my daughter and I did some shopping for items the director told us they need. Ezequiel, a friend to Hotel Xalteva, helped us get to the correct stores. Hotel Xalteva made everything easy and wonderful! I may cry when I leave. Before we even booked Hotel Xalteva, I spoke to Jay, the owner, and corresponded with him via email. He's very prompt with responding and couldn't have been more friendly. The entire experience was pure heaven and joy!"

  • Magical House on Laguna de Apoyo

    "Casa Del Sol is a hidden gem in Laguna de Apoyo. The house is nestled above the shore of the lake with breathtaking panoramic views of the lake and surrounding rainforest. Relax in the gorgeous infinity pool or in one of the nearby hammocks for a peaceful day of relaxation. Words cannot describe the view and the immaculate grounds surrounding this home. Our family of four (our kids are 10 and 12 years old) stayed at Casa Del Sol and I would definitely recommend this house for any family looking for a peaceful getaway. We all enjoyed hearing and seeing the family of howler monkeys that lived in the trees outside the master bedroom windows. We looked forward to sunrise swimming in the hot springs every morning while listening to the birds and monkeys nearby. The owner, Tamara was so responsive and offered lots of advice on things to do in Nicaragua. Don't miss the chocolate making class in Granada....so fun! Her staff made sure we were well taken care of. Carlos handled any questions we had and made reservations for our activities. He organized a cook for our meals which was fantastic. There are so many activities to enjoy in Nicaragua. We highly recommend going to the Masaya volcano at night....once in a lifetime experience! Maykel was our driver/tour guide for the week. He was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and just a fun guy. Contact him for all of your transportation/tours at maykel142687@gmail.com Nelly the housekeeper and the rest of the staff kept Casa del Sol sparkling clean throughout our entire stay. Look no further....book this home for your next trip to Laguna de Apoyo. You will be so happy you did!"

  • Beautiful space in a beautiful town

    "Our family of 6 stayed at Casa Gallo for a short get-away. It was everything the pictures and reviews seem. Beautiful space and wonderful host (Jose and Maria Elena). Clean and quiet. We loved the city of Granada, but had trouble even leaving the paradise of the house because it was so relaxing and tranquil just to spend time in the open air kitchen/dining room, the open court yard, the balcony with the view and the wonderful pool. This is a great space for our family of teenage and adult children, but I think it would also make a great space for a friends get-away, or families with small children. Other details: WIFI was strong and reliable, air conditioning is perfect for the Granada heat and sun, and you are in walking distance of many delicious cafes, restaurants and shopping in Granada (although it's great to have the option to cook in the large kitchen at the house--stock up on supplies a La Colonial or Union right down the road. We didn't have Maria Elena cook for us, but after 6+ months of living here in Nicaragua I can tell you that Nica food is delicious and I am sure Maria Elena makes some great Gallo Pinto--so I would recommend that, as well, even though we didn't take advantage of that option). Highly recommend this home. Richard is great at getting back to guests about questions before the trip (thanks!) and Jose is a great source of information at the house and in town. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back."

  • great vacation property

    "My husband and I rented the casa with three other friends, but sadly, we had to leave three weeks after arriving due to a medical issue. Our friends remained. We were very impressed with the property and enjoyed the amenities, especially the pool on every hot, humid day. The casa was spacious and relaxing with plenty of room for privacy. We ate most meals in so the kitchen facilities were adequate. A BBQ outside would have been a real bonus. We got to know the family of the owner and they went above and beyond in helping us to make travel arrangements, get bottled water and ultimately, helping us during a stressful period of hospitalization. They offered a great deal of valued advice and even drove us to the hospital on two occasions then visited my husband later in the Managua hospital. We would recommend this property for anyone wishing to visit Granada. The location was great for walking around and seeing the town. Sonia and Stewart Alberta, Canada"
