If you can go only one place in Central America, you should make it San Juan del Sur and the Pelican Eyes Resort. It is beautiful beyond description, the service is impeccable, the surroundings created for a picture perfect day, the food quite good, and the people friendly and helpful. Getting there is something of a challenge as the roads... More

We stayed in the Dulce Vida Casita Villa and really LOVED it. The view was amazing from our deck, the Villa was large with 2 bedrooms, and the outside patio was roomy, breezy and aaaah! Our room was close to 2 of the pools and 1 of the restaurants and was perfect for our family. The staff were super helpful... More

We sent three nights here in a HUGE Casa in April of last year. Its a late review...I know! The property is beautiful - albeit a huge amount of stairs, but well worth the climb. The pools are amazing, the fish and chips at the restaurant by the infinity pool at the top are still by far, the best I... More

My husband and I stayed at Piedras y Olas as part of a week long trip around Nicaragua. It was by far the nicest place we stayed. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the people were wonderful. We had one of the casitas on the far side of the resort. It had a full kitchen, huge bathroom and 2 queen... More

This is our second visit to this hotel. It is a gorgeous location with many beautiful features. But, and this is a big but, the hotel is in need of some significant maintenance on walkways and outdoor areas. Our casita was well maintained inside, very clean and well appointed. The housekeeping staff is doing their job. However, the veranda with... More

Spent three nights here at the end of trip around Nicaragua. Location is fabulous - great views and the accommodation is set amongst lush vegetation. Lots of stairs so you keep fit. The two restaurants were good and staff attentive. The two negatives for us were that although all the accommodation is in a stand-alone Casita if a double room... More

We would definitely recommend Piedras y Olas as a vacation hot spot. The accommodations are incredibly lush, ranging from large single homes to smaller rooms. Our house was fully equipped with kitchen utensils, air conditioning, TV, and DVD. We could even watch the beautiful sunset from our 2nd floor balcony. Of course, this particular house is not for the physically... More
