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

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
