the owners of this hotel have gone through a bad divorce and the hotel is dirty and the family members are living in it. The pool has not been cleaned in months, the rooms are dirty and the kitchen is filthy. There was never a breakfast offered, the bar was dry and they take your money ahead of time and...

The web-site pictures make this place look stunning. This is just the pictures though, and far from reality. When we arrived, the guesthouse helper was taking televisions in and out of our room trying to find one that works. They were not ready for our arrival despite a reservation weeks in advance. This house looks like it was once a...

If you are looking for an affordable lodging option in or around Granada, Nicaragua, the Dolphin Guest House is definitely NOT the place to stay. We had planned to stay for two nights, but made sure to only stay one night. I got a weird vibe from the woman who helps run the place. She stretched the truth a couple...

This hotel must be nice when you have a good manager and a good facilitated person to manage it. Exactly that's the problem what we had. We arrived at the hotel and there was nothing to drink. There is no bar, no kitchen where you can order something to eat and the pool had an awful dirty color. The water...

Our hosts made it a breeze to enjoy Granada, which is such a fun city. The breakfasts were lovely, they helped us order takeout, and there were an abundance of areas to relax and eat. The pool was a fantastic addition as well! Room was spacious and wonderful with a fun little patio. Don't miss the stunning views from the...

We were looking forward to staying at this hotel having seen a host of excellent comments on trip advisor and felt let down for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was an expensive stay for what you can get elsewhere and it seemed that there wasn't a generally accepted price as when we argued the price they reduced it to...

I stayed at the Dolphin Guest House with my wife and two kids for a week in July 2012. We had a huge room with 3 beds, full kitchen, and private bathroom. The guest house was very clean and secure! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating!! There are amazing views from the third floor terrace and it's very quiet...

Karolina, her staff and the hotel are fantastic. I spent 3 days there in July 2012 and would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Karolina even set us up with a great taxi driver who did not try to overcharge and gave us a great deal on a tour to the Mirador and Laguna Apoyo.

This beautifully designed B&B is located outside of the city of Granada, where it is peaceful with magnificent views of the lush, tropical vegetation and a dormant volcano on the horizon. The sound of songbirds awake you every morning (my favorite part). The staff is wonderful, the rooms are comfortable and the price is right. Enjoy a quiet breakfast of...
