Pelican Eyes has some of the best views in San Juan Del Sur. The suites are all unique and very clean. During our stay, the hot water was limited, but that was really not an issue. The hotel sits on a hill, high above the city and you get some of the most breathtaking views of the ocean. If you... More

Spent three nights in a lovely cabana overlooking the bay at San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua. This resort hotel is located on a hill. They will provide a vehicle to drive you up to your villa but we walked except for when we had our luggage. It's quite a steep walk up or down steps between the villa and... More

We traveled to several cities in Nicaragua over the last two weeks and this was our least favorite hotel- by far. When we arrived, we were greeted with "Welcome Drinks" and flyers for Nica Night entertainment. Everything was fine until we got to our cabana. It had a musty/moldy smell and was not cleaned very well. We had two queen... More

First Nicaragua run and back, and writing you while the experience is fresh. The town of San Juan del Sur is a shimmering sea of endless hostels. My normal move is to jump on TripAdvisor and do a quick scan with a Google follow up to check my math with a side of reviews. I know my style and can... More

We were supposed to stay here 4 days-only stayed 1 day. It is very far from the beach. The huge infinity pool on the website isn't really open. It's up a huge unpaved road with no walkway which you have to go outside of resort to get to. It is not staffed, no way to get drinks, food, towels. There... More

Pelican eyes so far has become my favorite place to go for vacations or just to get out to relax and enjoy everything about this ressort. There're no words to describe how magical the experience can be. Please visit and experience it yourselves.

I travel often, this year alone I been to Italy, Athens Greece and Puerto Rico to mention some. I have been to Nicaragua before, but never to San Juan del Sur and never seen Pelican Eyes!! What a beautiful place! Words won't make justice to the resort. Know, is a very rustic, and different resort in the most wowing way!... More

We spent a long weekend here with family and friends. It was very nice. The staff went out of their way for us. Rooms were clean . Food was good. Only thing is that on Sunday they have a very rowdy pool party but the management made sure we had a beautiful time on a cruise around San Juan del... More

This hotel is nice, I really liked the service, the room and the surroundings. The pool is spectacular with an amazing view. Food is expensive, so if you stay here, you better go eat in restaurants outside. This hotel has too many stairs, luckily I am athletic and I like exercise, but there were times I ended up tired. Not... More

Staff was nice. Hotel was poor. Price highly overrated. The one thing we were happy with was the beautiful view of the bay. The hotel room was a nice concept, but poor interior construction and run down... I understand that this place is only 12 years old. It could have been much better quality. Mosquitos could easily enter through the... More
