  • 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!"

  • Overall good time!

    "This property is really nice! Very clean and right on the beach. The pool is great as well. As someone who didn't know much about Nicaragua before arriving, I just wanted to comment that Hacienda Iguana is a resort village and there is really not much inside of it. You'll need to rent a car if you want to go explore anywhere else or to go to town to get groceries to cook. It's really a place for relaxing by the pool and surfing the massive waves. The owner is great at helping organize rides however you can definitely find cheaper ones if you just ask around (we were going to pay $150 USD for 5 people to San Juan Del Sur and ended up paying $60 USD). Overall had a great stay here though, really relaxing!"

    "We stayed 7 days and had an amazing time at this condo. Great surf and great service. Everything we needed was taken care of with zero hassle. Condo was very clean and you can check surf from living room sliding glass door. Food was great and cooked daily at our condo. We will def be back. Thanks so much for everything!!"

  • Relaxing getaway on an awesome beach.

    "The property is nicely located on the beach and the Crowsnest accommodation provided the basics I needed for my week long stay in a self-catering unit. It is clear that the design of the space was well thought out and developed with attention to details. Overall the maintenance is good and the place is clean and comfortable. Communication with the owners was very prompt. Staff were helpful with what I needed and otherwise I had the independence & solitude I was looking for. Wifi and body boards were a great added bonus. Would have preferred if the bikes were free to use. The lobster dinner I ordered was good but pricey at 500 cordobas (only 300 elsewhere). My one disappointment was the deck area. It was located at the back of the property and thus did not face the beach. Additionally the deck was useless in the rain because it got wet and worse yet, water collected in the overhead canvas. I got soaked twice and the cleaning lady regularly got wet when trying to drain the collected water. This inability to use the deck during rainy times meant there was no good place to sit and eat. It also meant I ended up sitting inside on my bed to read or watch a movie when it was raining rather than being able to use the awesome deck chairs outside. It seems like this is something that could be easily improved. Yes I would recommend this accommodation but FYI: - If you are planning to self-cater - the grocery situation is poor. The Commisary is mostly empty shelves. Use the pulperias but you will probably have to visit a few to get what you want. I recommend bringing as much as you can with you from the mainland. - Some taxi drivers do not like to go to the end of Long Bay road - 4 drivers turned me down at the airport when I arrived before I got ride. Also, a driver during the week would not drive off the paved road. Granted it's not a really long walk along the beach... just something to be aware of."
