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

I bought four days here through Groupon...THANK YOU groupon! It made it affordable. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The views are stunning, the villas are so unique as are the grounds and it is located in a nice little town with tons of great places to eat. I would highly recommend. If you have a problem... More

This place was quite good. We stayed there for 2 nights, and the services were excellent. The most excellent and relaxing place was the pool with oceanview. One of the things we did not like was that everything is expensive. Good matrimonial rooms and bed. You will fee at home away from home. But do get your wallet with some... More

We enjoyed our stay at the resort. However, in comparison to our other hotel choices, this was the least personable and memorable. It was very comfortable, nice and neat. There were ants and geckos but my husband and son were more than delighted to accommodate them. The air conditioner was very nice to come back to and the quiet at... More

This summer we returned to Pelican Eyes for the first time in 3 years. In the past, the main pools had good service, and excellent menu selections for appetizers (you could order carpaccio for example, meals, etc. The pools were beautiful and clean, and the service was excellent. However, this summer, the bar at the upper pool had poor service,... More
