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

We stayed at this property for 2 nights at the beginning of May 2014 and really, this is a hotel i would not recommend to anyone. I am surprised at the great reviews. We were travelling with a 10 month old baby (4 adults plus baby). The views are beautiful, no doubt. We stayed at Casa Pacifica. Nice private terrace,... More

The hotel is lovely and the view cannot be beat. The casa rooms are indeed very house-like with tons of storage space and decorated very artfully. The pool nearest our hotel room was closed often for private events. And the walk to the front of the property is long. We got a ride once, but the driver made fun of... More

What a lovely place. The staff is friendly (especially in the bar right at the top), the rooms are nice and the views are beautiful. Only slightly let down by the building work outside our room - but we were right on the fence line and if we had a room further up, I am sure we would not even... More

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
