Here goes another long-winded review. My wife and I stayed at Hotel Piedras y Olas January 24-27, 2008. This is a gorgeous property full of beautiful tropical plants perched on a hill overlooking the town of San Juan del Sur and the bay beyond. Getting to the hotel (resort is actually a better description) was a little taxing as the... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a regular room at Piedras y Olas. Most of the rest of the resort was taken up with a large wedding party so nothing else was available. We did not have a view of anything other than the mountain but the room was lovely & we were close to the lower restaurant & pool... More

We were completely delighted with our stay here. We had set reasonably low expectations, but what we found in fact exceeded the quality of many 5 star hotels we've stayed in around the world, The 2 bed (3 bath) casita, also had an enormous sun terrace, large living room (bedeckt with Xmas Tree) plasma TV (as did both bedrooms) and...

Pelican Eyes is a nice place, with a great view of San Juan Del Sur. The hotel looks very nice and the staff is very nice and polite. I stayed in two places on the property, the first one had a lot of ants which were constantly searching for food, don't leave any food out if you see any ants... More

Based upon reviews in trip advisor, we made a reservation for 5 nights at Hotel Pelican Eyes. However, it was necessary for us to cancel our plans, so we notified the hotel 2 months prior to the date of our reservation. We then discovered that we would be charged a cancellation fee of 10% for the entire amount-all 5 days;... More

On our first visit to Nicaragua we arrived at Pelican Eyes exhausted from a long border crossing from Costa Rica. Of course the road into San Juan Del Sur is an adventurous one...but when we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. Pelican Eyes is such a beautiful place and obviously intent on maintaining a real Central American... More

Our stay here was fantastic!! The food was great, the service excellent (very polite, there to cater to every need and going out of their way to render good service), the room was a dream, the overall feeling is that of being on a great relaxing vacation without a worry in the world! Definitely recommend to stay here!

We were two couples traveling for Thanksgiving week. We asked for reservations for two rooms but all they had was a villa with two bedrooms and two baths with ocean view, so we took it, and we loved it. The villa was hugh with tons of A/C and tons of hot water. It was completely private and quiet. The bay... More

It was so hard to find and so worthwhile. We booked for three nights and stayed two weeks. My husband and I travel everywhere, all the time, bargains and top dollar, and we are rarely surprised, positively or negatively. We were overwhelmed here. So much for so little. And as they tell you up front, come for a vacation and... More
