We originally planned to stay for 2 nights to get away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan del Sur, but ended up staying for 3 nights because we were so relaxed we found it hard to leave! This is mostly due to the open plan casa where you can relax for hours and enjoy the killer beach view.... More

We only stayed at Casa Pelon for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. The casa is really open and comfortable with a beautiful view of the beach. It was a great place to spend a couple of days after San Juan del Sur. The real appeal of Casa Pelon is however, the owner Marc. Marc told us... More

There are few hostels/hotels in the world where I have felt as comfortable and at home as I did at Casa Pelon. Initially intending to stay just one night in Playa Marsella, we ended up staying at Casa Pelon for the better part of our week in Nica. The beach is beautiful, nearly empty, and literally just around the bend.... More

Setting out to stay 1 day, we ended up spending 4 days at playa Marsella. The beach is beautiful, quite secluded and the weather phenomenal. But that's not the reason we stayed that long. Casa pelon is! Mark is the first one in Nica, or all of central america to us, who didn't just rented us a room, he welcomed... More

We loved our stay at Casa Pelon. Well located 1min from Playa Marsella with great sunset views of the beach. The place is well kept, green and has a really relaxed vibe. The staff was super friendly and the home-made breakfasts super tasty. We stayed in different hotels around Marsella but Casa Pelon was our favourite and the best value... More

We enjoyed or stay very much. My husband and I and our 2 boys spent 5 nights here. We had intentions of doing all sorts of things---horseback riding, surf lessons, exploring other beaches. Instead, we spent a little time exploring SJDS, more time hanging out, enjoying the hammocks and the most time, at the beach with the boogie boards. Our... More

Casa Pelon is situated in a beautiful location on playa Marcella and offers neat and tidy rooms, a comfortable communal area and hearty breakfasts. The atmosphere and level of care make you feel as if you are a guest in someone's home. The owners and staff work hard to offer a high level of service and hospitality and they are... More

Amazing place! I was told about Casa Pelon by another traveller I met and it didn't disappoint. Definitely one of the best places I've stayed so far. Perfect location (right on the beach), great staff and chilled vibes. Definitely stay here - I'll be back for sure.

My husband and I stayed our final few days here and are SO glad we did. This is an amazing location overlooking beautiful playa Marsella, just minutes from Maderas. It is more suitable for swimming but we did enjoy taking out their boogie board one afternoon. Paddle boards are for rent just down the beach as well. The room was... More
