We arrived and were greeted by Jennifer. As a group just left the shop, we asked for a tour which she was more than happy to provide along with a fresh cup of coffee - there were only 2 of us in the shop which made it really special. We had a great tour and met all of the family/friends... More

Jennifer is the owner and a great host. We were welcomed into the shop and offered a hand rolled cigar. It was a great smoke and we enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the shop. We ended up buying cigars to take home and hats/t-shirts.

Upon arriving I was taken to the area where they hand roll cigars and one of their cigar rollers proceeded to role one up and explain to me what he was doing and let me smell the various leaves he used. After it was done he asked if I smoked cigars and when I said I did he struck a... More

This was one of our stops on our day tour of Nicaragua. They showed us how the cigars are made and rolled a nice chocolate cigar sample for my husband. Good selection of cigars to purchase. They have one of the biggest cigars I have ever seen!

Some of the best cigars I have smoked. Love their touch to a custom blend cigar to my taste. Wonderful people working and serving.

Husband was very excited to find Dona Elba - it was highly recommended by cigar enthusiasts we encountered throughout our travels. Tours were unavailable during our visit but we purchased several cigars to take home. Excited to have a reminder of Granada while relaxing and enjoying one with a nice scotch/bourbon on the rocks!

We asked our guide if we can drop by a cigar place while in Granada as we were not able to visit Esteli in this trip (apparently they make the best cigars in the world there) and he recommended Dona Elba Cigars. As soon as we walked in, Jennifer, the wife of the founder, greeted us and she was very... More

We stopped here on our Granada city tour and actualy were quoted prices on available cigars and that's it. No presentations, no deep explanations, no samples...I bought a wooden box and a couple of smaller chocolate flavored ones and that's it. It was really a 15min stop. Probably if you come here on your own schedule it might be a... More

Family run business for 20 years and still a very authentic place. We can't recommend this place enough! Thanks to all the staff for a great experience. Even though we are non smokers and absolute cigar novices, my boyfriend and I made our own cigars for $5 each and also bought a pack of small cinnamon infused cigars to take... More

I can't believe the quality of Doña Elba Cigars! I have had cigars from just about every cigar production country and Doña Elba Cigars is at the top of the list. They may not have the publicity like many of the million+ dollar cigar companies, but I can guarantee you that their cigars are consistent and absolutely the best around.... More
