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

Everything about the appearance of this hotel was impressive. The view was great, the rooms were huge, the pools were fantastic... however the service was pretty bad. We were there during the off season, so they may have been off their game, but we were pretty displeased with the experience. The room: Our air conditioning didn't really work, nor did... More

My girlfriend and I were extremely lucky to get a Groupon for this place, it would have been out of our budget range otherwise. It was great to spoil ourselves at this high end resort. The staff were nice and let us switch rooms when we asked if there was any nicer ones. Our second place had a nice veranda... More

Before I begin. We were a group of about 12 staying in 5 rooms and 1 full house. I'll start with the views. This is by far the only reason to stay here. You have breathtaking views- hands down some of the best views I've ever seen. They have infiniti pools, but they only turn them on Saturdays and Sundays.... More

The signs leading to this location tout views of paradise from paradise. The rooms and villas nestled on the hills of San Juan del Sur give sweeping views of the beach, the town and some spectacular sunsets. The hotel has an inviting registration area an main dining room. It has a solid bar, a separate “family” pool, ad a spa.... More

Upon arrival, the hotel learned we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The assistant manager moved us to an upper level villa with panoramic views from the bedroom and from the large balcony for our entire stay. Accommodations were spacious and bright. At breakfast, waiters bent over backwards to provide the best service and offered food items we might enjoy... More

Thanks to Groupon, we were able to afford a stay at Pelican Eyes, which would normally be too exorbitant for our budget. The setting is various villa-type dwellings on the side of a hill overlooking San Juan del Sur and the ocean. We had a large room on one side of a villa. The room was air-conditioned and had a...

My husband & I purchased a Groupon for 5 nights at Pelican Eyes. We arrived at the resort and were greeted by friendly (English speaking) staff. They drove us to our villa as the grounds are extremely expansive on a mountainside. The driver was friendly & chatty. He briefed us on the grounds & showed us the walking path from... More
