The main focus of this place is to sell you a casa or casita, but not necessarily let you live there full time. You buy it, pay most of the expenses, and the resort rents it out and gets a good chunk of the money. They are up on a hill overlooking San Juan del Sur. The place is covered... More

As far as views go - it's tough to beat Pelican Eyes in San Juan del Sur. The entire resort is built in the hills, with each casa, pool and restaurant taking full advantage of the sweeping west-facing views of the bay. The rooms are a good size, and each have a private terrace - which is great. We did... More

This place was pretty disappointing. Each day we had to call reception to fix the fact that there was no hot water again and they had the audacity to treat us poorly because of this, like we were an annoyance. There were huge spiders and endless ants all throughout the house we rented, I get it, we are in the... More

Touted as the best resort in San Juan del Sur, and one of the best in Nicaragua, Pelican Eyes is just falling short of being a truly 5 star resort. Built into the hillside above town, the views are incredible and can't be beat. We stayed in a casita in phase 2. It was spacious, with an open kitchen, living... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was spacious and very nice with a great private patio. The pools were all very nice. The main restaurant/bar was great. We really enjoyed the service, the food, and the prices were reasonable for a really nice hotel in Nicaragua. The only negative was that the hot water was inconsistent, but I'm... More

The location and way in which the resort has been developed show amazing imagination and the view from the top infinity pool is hard to beat anywhere. More lounge chairs are needed though. There are signs of lack of maintenance ( although a lot was being done when we were there) and the service can be frustrating but just to... More

Nestled on the hill overlooking San Juan del Sur, this resort offers some of the most spectacular views of the area. The rooms are comfortable and well cleaned. AC/fans work well. Rooms include a private patio for lounging. The property boasts 3 infinity pools, 2 restaurants and a spa. Staff were all friendly and attentive. That being said, guests do... More

If your wanting an experience that most closely resembles a 4 star hotel in the states, Canada or Europe, this is it and it comes at a price. Best sunset views bar none. Food options and quality are very good and relatively expensive. Service staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Many are bi-lingual in English. Location to town can't be... More

The hotel is very nice. The houses are very big and spacious but not as comfortable. Furniture looks nice but its uncountable to use. Our bed was very big and not as comfy but the room was very big and the shower was nice. The TV has a very bad signal and a strange sound. The pool on the main... More
