From the moment I walked in, amazing hospitality around a luxurious atmosphere.

The rooms were spaces with great showers and nice AC. The breakfast was delicious with an omelet station and service. The chocolate cafe...

The Dario is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in, even compared to some hotels here in the states. The hotel itself is very open with plenty of room to lounge around. The staff is extremely accommodating and very friendly. The cafe within the hotel is fantastic (I personally recommend the chocolate cheesecake). If you need...

First off the Location was perfect. I went with a team of 20 people. We would walk to the town square everyday. If you want to do any shopping or if you're looking for a good restaurant, Hotel Dairo is located in a very convenient location. The Staff was second to none. They went above and beyond everyday. They even...

The Alhambra and Hotel Granada were very nice. However, the Dario is, in my opinion, the best location being directly on Calle La Calzada. Alhambra is at the far end of the Central Square and Hotel Granada is at the furthest end of the city. All within walking distance of anything you'd want to see in Granada but The Dario...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and loved our balcony room overlooking Calle Calzada and Mombacho volcano. We had no trouble sleeping and the AC worked great. The pool is pretty small but it cooled us off after touring the city. The hotel is beautiful with high ceilings and we liked the balcony off the front of the room...

The Dario was a pleasant surprise bursting with colonial beauty and staffed with a very friendly and professional staff. The rooms are great and the food is incredible. Don Ramon at breakfast will serve you with five-star excellence. Definitely coming back.
