My husband and I arrived in Nicaragua in May and after travelling around for a week went to Granada where we had booked a two night stay at Casa Lucia.
Our jaws dropped when we walked through this beautiful hotel. Everything was just right, from the entrance walkway with the tropical plants and fountain to the main patio area with its swimming pool, lovely gardens and yoga platform. We wondered if the rooms would be as good as the exterior and we were not to be disappointed. We had booked a suite called the Heliconia. The room was very spacious with a balcony to the rear, a large bathroom and plenty of room for our clothes and bags.. What impressed us even more was the décor. It was so comfortable and tastefully done. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with a large tropical fruit plate and several healthy choices. It was so filling I couldn't eat until evening. The cook was a delightful man from the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua who spoke perfect English. The staff were extremely helpful, especially the charming manager, a lady from Bermuda, who arranged a tour for us.
Later we relaxed by the pool with drinks from the hotel bar. That night we stargazed from the mirador, a viewing platform on the roof which has magnificent views of the Volcano Mombacho.The next morning we took the yoga class. My husband hadn't done yoga before but I have practiced occasionally. There were several other guests in the class and we all loved the setting by the pool beneath a huge palm thatch roof called a palapa. The instructor was very knowledgable and guided us through a challenging and interesting class. We decided to do the class every morning during our stay. We loved Casa Lucia so much we extended our stay with them for a whole week. We were sorry to leave this unique retreat in the heart of the town.
I would highly recommend Casa Lucia to anyone who wants to spend time in Granada.
