I absolutely loved this hotel. It's right in the center of a street filled with restaurants, gelato and nightlife. Walking distance from the popular church and offers exceptional views of the volcanos, as well as the city. They have a quaint pool and it was always heated when I used it. Their rooms have elevated ceilings, tall doors, air conditioning,... More

A second smaller courtyard with a pool is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cigar and a glass of Flor de Cana. It's centrally-located in Grenada, near... More
