I really don't think you can go wrong with this property. This was my first trip to
San Juan del Sur, and I wanted something with a projected higher level of
service while I figured out the town. I believe I got it.
I tend to be a sucker for the "welcome" services like the cool towel and the juice
and they were, well, welcome. The room is a ways from either parking area (up
or down), and there are lots of steps--although the resort will drive you close to
the room upon request. The climbing is something to consider but didn't really
bother me, and I was rewarded with a great view.
I was in "Brazil". Room was medium-large. I couldn't decide if I cared for the
decor--something about it reminded me of the Playboy Grotto--but decide for
yourself. The star was the huge balcony with the killer view. There is a private
walkway to the room and I found myself pining for my Signifcant Other (whom
I met after deciding on this trip) as the place was incredibly romantic and
private. It was missing some amenities such as robes and an iron, something
I wouldn't even mention in a mid-priced place, but I have a little higher
expectation in a luxury resort. It did have a get-your-own fridge and a
I was exploring the area and didn't use the pools, but numbering 3, I think
they should make everyone happy. They probably could use a fitness
center--they do have a spa--but perhaps those stairs are all one needs!
There is a well-rated/"come as you are" restaurant where I had breakfast--
I liked Day 1's better than Day 2's, but I did find the prices very reasonable
for a resort dining area. Staff all around was great and they seem very
devoted to everyone's happiness.
Everything's fairly close together in San Juan del Sur--it will take about
10 minutes to walk to town, depending where on the property you are
(or they'll take you for 5 dollars). As I solo traveler, for my purposes,
I might take something a little more basic and closer to town next time--
but if I do bring someone special, Pelican eyes will be my first choice.
