Vive La Difference! I hope Nicaragua isn't turning into Costa Rica, but some are trying. At least I truly hope some of the money people pour into places like this trickles down to the community. Why did I come here? I don't really know. I thought it would be a good change after a few funky days. But I felt... More

Just got back from a 7 night stay (and our first time in "Nica") and had a wonderful time. Piedras y Olas was more then accommodating. The Casitas were very comfortable and on an amazing property. There is a bit of a walk down to the main reception (lots of steps), but well worth the walk and made for a... More

We stayed here in February 08 for 3 nights. Everything was great, and the property is beautiful. We probably had one of the best views you could find. Service was excellent, even when it was really busy. Food was great, and so was our suite. The only possible downfall is the walk to the pool from our particular room. Although... More

I had settled on a trip to Nicaragua based on feedback from several friends who had visited there recently, and chose San Juan del Sur and Hotel Pelican Eyes based on other TripAdvisor reviews. It was a great experience all around. Nicaragua is amazing, and SJDS did not disappoint. I was looking for a place to drop out for a... More

We loved this magical spot. Chris has created a paradise at a bargain price for true luxury. Lbee's food is sensational. Run to this hotel, you will not be disappointed. The accommodations are beautiful, the setting of the pool is gorgeous and there is nothing negative to say about this destination, WOW

Our family spent 5 wonderful days at Pelican Eyes, and we all want to go back. First of all , the architecture, landscaping, and setting were all first class. You can watch the sunset from your own room or from one of the wonderful restaurants. Choose from one of several pools at different levels, all with stunning views. The food... More

We stayed at Pelican Eyes from June 5th to June 12th, 2008 and had a fantastic time. The place is an absolute fantasy land. The rooms are fabulous with all sorts of crazy curves and finishes. Opposite our room was the monkey habitat. All sorts of animals and birds are present on the property, as it is also an animal... More
