Whether or not you stay at this resort (we didn't) it's a must-see destination in San Juan del Sur. The restaurant has a gorgeous view and the food we sampled was delicious. Poolside, under the shade of a thatched roof or out in the sun on a lounge chair, service is friendly and the vista is incredible. We went sailing... More

WOW, imagine owning a business that doesn't have the staff at 3:30 in the afternoon to talk to me about reservations. I only was looking for a resort where I could spend three or four days a month to get away from Managua. If nobody is available to take a reservation I can hardly imagine how little staff is available... More

My family and I from Canada stayed here for 5 days in Feb/15. We had an amazing time and were treated well by all. We stayed in a gorgeous, well designed 2 bedroom 3 bath casa on top of the hill with a stunning view of the bay. We had access to 3 infinity pools and used them all. We... More

We had no intention of staying at this resort. Circumstances forced us to change our plans and we ended up spending a total of 9 nights here, first in a "estudio suite", and then in a "casita". We booked the initial unit online, and I would advise you should look at a site map before you reserve and probably do... More

I can't say enough about my recent stay in Pelican Eyes in SJDS. The staff went above and beyond to make me comfortable and my every need was met. I was slightly hesitant to stay here given a couple of the questionable reviews here, but any reservations I had disappeared within my first day here. Allow me to address them:... More

Fantastic room, decent food, spectacular views of the bay. Had a group of about 12 monkeys hanging in the tree right outside our room one day! Watch tips because they are already included in the bill. Had an incident where the security guard at the main gate tried to kiss my friend on night when she gave him zero indication... More

Amazing location, beautiful views. You should watch every single dollar that your are charged. The dishonesty is extremely disappointing and negatively impacted our trip as we has to double check everything. Such a shame since this place has the potential to be a top location in the area but not with this dishonest staff.

Had the opportunity to stay at Pelican Eyes in January as our rental home was not available for our entire time. Pelican Eyes definitely is a beautiful resort and we found the staff and accommodations to be great. The grounds are beautiful and the resort is well planned out. The one draw back was the amount of stairs to climb... More

Can I move there? The staff were amazing, the food was incredible and the room was so comfortable. I saw one review that spoke of ants and there are a lot of ants, check your room when you arrive as they may need to spray them. The hotel is built on a hill so there are lots of stairs, that...
