Service and facilities were exceptional at the Pelican Eyes. Paradise for sure. I would only express some concern with security at the property. On two evenings at our beautiful villa/casa (after midnight) we were woken by strangers who were seemingly trying to gain entrance while we slept. When I rose and arrived at the door they quickly scurried away. While... More

We stayed here in March of 2014. The staff is very nice and accommodated us as to room location. We would not have been able to stay if they did not help us. The view from any of the pools is beautiful. We ate almost all our meals by the pool and the food was delicious- I have been trying... More

If you are looking for relaxing accommodations and some pampering I would highly recommend Pelican Eyes. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated with exceptional service. The accommodations were lovely! Our townhouse had two balconies with breath taking ocean views of San Juan Del Sur. The food and drinks were delicious, the pool was... More

If you are looking for the hotel with the best view in SJDS, Pelican Eyes is it. A resort set on a hill side, it has a commanding view of the bay and of the nightly sunsets that just seemed to get better with each day. The atmosphere is charming in that though it is classified as a resort, it... More

We've been with my girlfriend in Nicaragua for a week. First visited Granada and in pursuit of beach and sun we went to San Juan. We didn't do much research and stayed in one of the hotels in Town. A couple we met over there told us about this Resort, that they have "most amazing view in town" and we... More

Our stay at Pelican Eyes was nothing short of amazing! Gorgeous views, spacious accommodations, wonderful food/drink (especially your choice of fresh juice with breakfast) and friendly service. Massages by the pool are a must! It doesn't get much better than watching the sunset over San Juan Del Sur from La Cascada pool. Overall, a great experience and highly recommended to... More

I booked a stay at Pelican Eyes at the recommendation of my friends, since they were having a wedding in SJDS and the reception at Pelican Eyes. I admit, it was laziness on my part in not researching other options hotel. I looked at some pictures, and the review seemed good, and plus my friends had been there and recommended... More

Unfortunately, my girlfriend and I were only able to stay here for 2 nights. We would've loved to stay here longer. We stayed in one of the "casa's", which took our breath away. The room is like a little Spanish villa and is very charming. Our room was near the lap pool and the views from the pool overlooked the... More
