Our car broke down and the B&B's we had used in the past were full. I had heard of this "cooking school" B&B and thought we would give it a shot without any expectations. In short, we will return. It is just two rooms, each a modest independent building at the end of the owners home. The room we used... More

My husband is a great amateur chef and he was stunned by how well equipped the kitchen is here, sharp knives, great pots and pans, etc! We stayed 3 nights and regretted having to leave because the room was booked by someone the rest of the week. In the 6 weeks and 14 places we stayed, this was the place... More

Spent a really wonderful day with Sybil at one of her cooking classes. Learned how to prepare 'parrot' fish in six different ways - all amazingly delicious! Also made my first home made mayonnaise (with a jalapeno garlic kick!). Also, a lovely pudding, plus cucumbers as a hot and savoury veg. Sybil is great to work with ... patient, knowledgeable...

A beautiful remote place with bangallows just above the beach ! Amazing views of the sea and beautiful garden , plus a very nice small pool again with a perfect view. Delicious breakfast prepared by the german lady owner , which obviously knows very well her ways around the kitchen!

We felt so fortunate to have found Casas Pelicano. We stayed for 7 nights this past March in the 2-bedroom Casa Mapache. We absolutely loved it. The cottage was pleasant, not fancy, nice kitchen, clean bathroom (but I loved the outdoor shower better) , 2 small bedrooms, one with double, one with twin. But what made it so wonderful was...

It is hard to find a more peacefull and beautiful place to relax, unwind and enjoy nature. The property is just above the beach where perfect waves crash on the rocks and sand - you can watch for hours. The garden is magnificent and all the different kinds of plants and palm trees create a fantastic setting. The small yet... More

... where you can just relax. We stayed five nights and had a very good time there without doing much :) The Casas Pelicano exist of only two pretty bungalows that are located in a remote part of the already remote village Junquillal. They are situated just above the beach which can be seen from the bungalow's terraces and reached... More

Sitting right on the Pacific ocean, these beautiful little cottages are well equipped, well maintained - and affordable ! The views are spectacular - the sounds of the waves are soothing - and the luscious tropical gardens and the spacious terraces create very private outdoor spaces for the guests. The quaint, relaxing community offers a great little supermarket (for all... More

While checking out Playa Junquillal area we noticed a sign for Sibylle's Casa Pelicano Cooking School. We rang the buzzer and were soon warmly welcomed by Sibylle. We booked a dinner lesson for a few evenings later. There were 4 of us, 2 experienced cooks and 2 non-cooking husbands. Sibylle wouldn't let us guys off the hook... we were soon... More
