This was truly a wonderful and charming place. The room was big and fit four of us comfortably with really high ceilings and excellent A/C. It was also very clean and the owners and staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The dipping pool was a welcome addition to Granada's hot summer days. Breakfast in the morning was very good. Always...

La Islita Boutique Hotel is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Granada. It isn't posh by American standards, but then you're not in the US. This hotel is quaint, charming, peaceful. It is walking distance to the square and central areas, but out of the way of the night partiers. We spent 5 nights here, 3 nights would've been...

By far the best accommodation we stayed in during our 3 week tour of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The hotel is located in a quiet street just a few minutes from the cathedral. It's traditional colonial in architecture and decor with its rooms built around a central courtyard which houses the breakfast area and small dip pool. So much effort...

Wonderful receptionist Arnold. Very helpful and provided lots of good information. Indoor pool is small and could use some plants or shades to separate it or hide it from the receptionist's area, but whatever. Room was good with a balcony looking over cute street. Street parking when the owner's car was inside in their garage space. Granada is cute, if...

As other reviewers stated great location and helpful staff. We had hired transportation through hotel and I was concerned because our flight arrive late but driver wax there waiting. Our room was upgraded to the one with the balcony very nice. I definitely recommend this hotel. We felt safe the entire time.

Let me preface this by saying I've stayed at La Islita 3 times and I honestly don't think I will ever stay anywhere else in future visits. La Islita is only a handful of rooms (I believe 8 in total?) which makes for a cozy atmosphere. You'll see the same staff throughout your visit. They'll remember your name and you'll...

It usually takes me a day or so to adjust to a new country. But as soon as we walked into La Islita, we felt right at home. I think it's perfectly located on a quiet street just a couple blocks from the main strip with a fantastic choice of restaurants. The owners and staff are warm and friendly and...

This hotel is amazing! Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The owners couldn't be more accommodating. They have done a great job with this place. It is like an oasis in the middle of Granada. The pool is perfect. Small, refreshing and welcomed after a long hot day. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We wouldn't recommend the ground floor room (we...

We spent three nights at La Islita in December of 2015 as part of eleven days in Nicaragua. As a first timer to Nicaragua, I was a little apprehensive about accommodations, particularly in a city not on the beach, I couldn't have been more pleased. The rooms, although small for America standards, were clean and well kept. The small pool...
