I stayed here for three nights. The staff I encountered were all pretty helpful. The room was large, and had both aircon and fan, which was nice. There are two pools, the second of which is quite hidden, but isn’t very clean. I only had breakfast at the hotel once – it was very good, although quite expensive. One thing... More

I loved, loved, loved this hotel. The staff and the service was exceptional. It is a convenient location. Wifi worked great at the pool, in my room (#9), and in the lobby. It took just a few minutes to get connected, but once I was connected there wasn't a problem. I had breakfast at the restaurant on two occasions. It... More

Our family of 6 had two Junior Deluxe Suites which were in a very quiet and private part of the hotel. It even had a small pool outside our door - great to cool off from very hot Granada.

Just stayed at the Colonial Hotel with my 3 kids (solo parenting). We had a poolside room (#15) which was ideal for the kids right beside the main pool.

If I compare the other hotels in the city this one is one of the best. The warm atmosphere good service and a large nice rooms with the windows aircondition and the view to the patio is the base. As a favor thehotel is just a few meter from the main square and the main street with many restaurants.

The Colonial is slap-bang in the middle of the buzzy colonial city of Grenada. While it lacks a nice frontage with veranda and chairs, like the Alhambra opposite, it concentrates instead on three smart interior courtyards. These are immensely attractive, festooned with both original art and bougainvillea, and two of the courtyards have small swimming pools, a blessed relief in... More
