Property Details

Updated: Mar 18, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Condos Hotel Xalteva is a small boutique condo hotel in Granada. The complex has nine luxury units in a quiet safe neighborhood and only 6 blocks away from the Parque Central and all restaurants, shops and nightlife. Why choose just a hotel room when one can have a full kitchen, dining and living space for the same price.

This truly is an oasis within the city and a great home base from which to explore all of Nicaragua. The Pacific coast, mountain coffee plantations and magnificent volcanoes are all within 1 1/2 hours drive, but the colonial city of Granada is the main attraction. On the edge of Lake Nicaragua and in the shadow of Mombacho volcano, Granada is a romantic city of colorful colonial homes and churches. Founded in 1524, Granada enjoys the distinction of being the oldest colonial city in the Americas. This relaxed and mellow city has one of the most pleasant central plazas in Latin America which is surrounded by 16th-century colonial buildings, great restaurants, museums and other entertainment. Granada is a great place to base and explore most of Nicaragua's popular highlights.

Granada shares the shoreline with Lake Nicaragua, the 10th-largest freshwater lake in the world. The lake has great sport-fishing in and around over 360 tiny tropical islands (Isletas) that are richly covered with vegetation. The islands of Lake Nicaragua were created hundreds of years ago when the volcano Mombacho exploded. Today, you can explore this extinct volcano along trails in the cloud forest. You'll see more varieties of orchids than just about anywhere else in the world and all kinds of wildlife, including 170 counted species of birds and blue morpho butterflies. You can also take a canopy tour, shooting from treetop to treetop on harnessed zip-lines.

Near Granada you'll find Lake Apoyo. This crater lake, formed over 21,000 years ago when a volcano erupted, is the largest crater lake in the country and one of the most beautiful. The views from the top stretch over the hillsides, taking in the blue waters below. Because of its elevation, Lake Apoyo is generally five degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler than Granada, just 15 minutes away. Its pristine water has therapeutic qualities, thanks to the sulfur and other minerals, and the temperature is 85 degrees all year long. It is in a Nicaraguan natural reserve and a proposed UNESCO World Heritage site.

Masaya's Craft Market and the Masaya Volcano National Park. Nearby Masaya is home to Nicaragua's best craft market, offering just about anything that's hand-crafted in the country—ceramics, leather goods, iron work, hammocks, jewelry, rocking chairs, masks, clothing . . . you name it.

There are five active volcanoes at nearby Masaya Volcano National Park offering the best volcano viewing in Central and North America. It's the only place in the region where you can see hot magma rising from the depths of the Earth—and you can drive right to the top!

If you need a smaller unit, contact us for availability of the one bedroom unit or a hotel type room with private bath.

About the Owner

The consistent mid 80's temperatures brings us regularly to Granada from our home of 50+ years in Vermont.

The step back in time and reliving history is most attractive and comforting for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For comfort and value Condos / Hotel Xalteva is difficult to beat. Neil and his staff provide top-notch service: knowledgeable, attentive, thorough and friendly. The hotel is superbly maintained and to top that they have something difficult to find in Nicaragua - HOT water! They are well known throughout Granada and have an impeccable reputation. The hotel location makes for a short walk to the town plaza and yet is away from the hustle and bustle. We are already planning our next visit!

Beautiful condo in a beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was perfect! We stayed for 20 days with our two kids, ages 8 and 10. The condo was great for a family. Large, comfortable and modern, but built in the colonial style, so it fits in perfectly with the city. The boys loved the swimming pool, and we loved having a kitchen! The condo was spotlessly clean, and the staff on-site were very friendly and helpful. They can help to arrange tours in and around Granada - I highly recommend Mombacho Volcano and Laguna de Apoyo. Thanks again - this was a wonderful stay! We will not hesitate to recommend your condo to anyone traveling through Granada!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5
All of the advantages of a newer property yet with the charm of colonial Granada. A beautiful facility, fabulous staff and marvelous owners. Who could ask for anything more. Near enough to the central park to walk or just a 40 cent taxi ride away.
Breakfast every am by the pool was the perfect way to start each day and to meet fellow travelers.
We received the treatment of a 5star hotel within a lovely, small intimate setting.
Our thanks to Kathy and Jay and to Melissa and all of the staff. We love you all and had a fabulous 2 weeks in Granada. (sorry that Sophie couldn't make this trip).

loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5
we stayed Xalteva Condo/Hotel for 5 nights in early May 2011. It's a lovely property and a beautiful small hotel...the pictures do not do it justice. Our room was well appointed with hard woods, lovely bedding and towels, a great mattress and a really nice tiled bathroom with double vanity sinks. The air conditioner was strong and quiet. We had a wonderful large window that opened up to the deeply shaded veranda over looking the beautiful pool. The grounds were impeccable and beautifully planted.

The staff was outstanding...charming, helpful, friendly, efficient. Neil, the manager and it seems most of the staff, have been there since the beginning of the Hotel, 5 years ago...which says a lot. They were a "well oiled machine".

The hotel was in a excellent location...just a lovely walk from the central park, but in a quiet residential part of town.

Really....just can't say enough about this place! We would be very happy to stay here again!

The Best Place in Town

  • 5 of 5
Xalteva is The Place to stay in Granada. Stunning property, great location, friendly and knowledgeable staff. My family and I stayed at the condos during the Easter week, and loved every minute of it. The place is safe and clean: a true home away from home…and we are usually very picky. Every unit has a fully equipped kitchen -- travelling with kids, we found it to be very convenient. If you need groceries, a supermarket is near-by. And so are numerous great restaurants. Staff at the office was very responsive. They can help with anything you may need: finding a reliable guide, taxi, restaurant recommendations...whatever. They connected us with an English-speaking guide who was with us the entire week. He truly made this trip unforgettable. Out of curiosity we checked out several high-ranking hotels in Granada, but hands down, Xalteva is the best place in town.

From the Owner

We find comfort in the location being just a bit away from the city center noise and activity, yet an easy walk. The property is well staffed and most speak some English. Again...why stay in a hotel when for the same price have a full kitchen, living and dining areas. Private, but not exclusive. One of a kind in Granada.The
