Gran Hotel Nacional Review

Rooms are spacious, but the decor is dated in David's old standby hotel, popular with foreigners who pass through. Front rooms have views of the large trees that shade the parking area. The small pool area's gardens and lawn may be the most pleasant spots in David. The hotel also boasts an in-house movie theater and casino. Its three restaurants include a pizzeria and the open-air Barbacoa, which serves a small dinner selection of meat and seafood.
