About Marlene Rivas
Xanadu has been named after Marco Polo's 13th century report of the fantastic palace of Kublai Khan in Shangdu, China. Xanadu became the English pronunciation of Shangdu. We use it as an inspiration to provide palace-like atmosphere and service in this Central American tropical climate.
Marlene Rivas purchased this hotel in 2004
Why Marlene Rivas chose Granada
Colonial charm meets modern luxury in this spectacular residence inn. Centrally located in Granada's historic district, never need a taxi day or night as you are within walking distance to historical monuments, architecture, museums and restaurants, take evening walks to the Calzada Street night life on well lighted streets.
What makes this hotel unique
The place you stay is also your primary destination. Or at least it should be. Xanadu redefines the traveler's expectation of comfort and focuses on the entire spectrum rather than 'just lodging'. Start with a good Shiatsu massage on your first day done in the privacy of your own suite. Yes, we have no 'rooms' but actual suites with ceilings that tower some 26' above, lending a sense of infinite space and comfort.
After a sumptuous breakfast in a tropical garden by the pool be sure to talk to Marlene Rivas in customer relations. She's a licensed tour guide and offers everything to free descriptions of where to go and what to see and do to actually arranging your tours door to door.
If you plan to stay for several days and are traveling in a group or family, you may not want to eat in restaurants every day. No problem. Maria will arrange for dinners in the evening made acceding to your tastes.
Relax after a day of tours, take a swim in Xanadu's pool, then listen to your own music which wirelessly connects to your smart phone without getting up.
Making your vacation effortless requires a trained staff who attends to your every need. In fact most guests later report that Xanadu's amazing staff is what impressed them the most.
