When you arrive at the hotel, our local staff welcomes you. Twelve “Nica’s” ensure that you feel right at home. Together with the tutoring team at Las Lagunas they form the local staff of the Foundation Hotel con Corazón.

Some were born in Granada, a few are from out of town: from one of the nearby Islands of Ometepe and as far away as the mountains in the north. Several of our staff members have previous experience in the hospitality industry or as a teacher in elementary school. Others work in the hotel to finance their studies in accounting, law or education.


The teams works under the guidance of Boris Françoise and Marcela Mayorga, a French-Nicaraguan couple that has been entrepreneurs in the tourist industry in Granada since 2005, being  owners of a small hostel. Their roots in Nicaraguan society and their experience in tourism and social projects – Marcela has a background in social real estate and is an active member of the local Tourism Board of Entrepreneurs Canatur, that strides agains sexual exploitation of children – make them the perfect managerial team.
