We were allocated the top floor of the house which was rather luxurious to other casas we had stayed in. We had a lovely bathroom with a power shower and a huge sunken bath; I love a nice soak in the bath so I was instantly happy.
The bedroom was adequately & nicely furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Two nice terraces to sit on although we never had time to use them.
The maids are dressed in pink uniform (its a casa for goodness sake, not a five star hotel) and their purpose is very apparent...to service almost every need of the casa owners who clearly feel they are above the daily chores - that kinda left a bad taste in our mouths and made us feel like we were party to some kind of snobbish upperclass "slavery" !!
We weren't allocated a key to the house so had to ring the bell to be let in which made us feel uncomfortable about staying out too late. Upon arriving back to the casa at night you weren't made to feel particularly welcome, a kinda icy silence greeted you.
Breakfast was serviced by the uniformed maid in the outside courtyard whilst under heavy scrutiny by the lady of the house! the court yard is pretty and houses many caged birds which makes a tranquil setting for breakfast.
All in all we had a comfortable stay, its not an overly friendly place by any means but nor is it hostile, if you want to use this casa for a nice clean, comfortable stay and just come and go as you please from a convenient location then casa Ivan & Lucy will fit the bill.
Restaurante 1800 in the plaza of San Juan de Dios offers good quality meals at very reasonable prices all day long so you aren't compelled to eat at Ivans y Lucys.
