Absolutely the best spot in Nicaragua to visit. Special thanks to Miguel and Ramfis for exceptional and friendly service. Very kind and made the vacation experience extra special. You are treated very well. The food is amazing and scenery exceptional. I had a great time and would come again and again. Many thanks to a memorable experience.

Spent the afternoon here enjoying the shade, pools, food and drinks. Towels were provided. There are quite a few steps to negotiate before reaching the top pools but it is worth it for the stunning view. Definitely worth a visit.

Granted we stayed during the easter vacation but I did expect more from a hotel that qualifies themselves as a 5 star resort. Breakfast was included bit really not much of a selection. My wife asked for milk with her coffee but that never showed up. Its understandable during such busy seasons but we were at the restaurant at 7am...

Came to Pelican Eyes to watch sunset and have a drink by the pool. The view is amazing. Service at the pool bars was pretty slow, but it was busy. Best view in San Juan Del Sur hands down. We wish we could have stayed overnight

We spent two glorious nights here just recently for our anniversary and birthday. The staff and service was outstanding as were the magnificent accommodations and breathtaking views. The villas are built like a fortress and the workmanship was awe inspiring!! The shuttle came to get us at a moments notice to go to the main pool and restaurant area. The...

Twice in one week I enjoyed the restaurants and pools of Pelican Eyes resort. In the evening, they offered free live music at the lower poolside restaurant. Sunset, cocktails & lovely snacks made the evening relaxing. Two days later, I attended a brunch party for 14 of us at their top infinity pool. The service was excellent and the delicious...

We came to have a regional meeting with People from all Central America. I became greatly impressed with the quality of the villas. They were so well designed and furnished!. The service was superb. I have never been so well attended by anyone else in resorts like Pelican Eyes. Maria has been the greatest hostess I have ever had. I...

I recently just spent a week at Pelican Eyes. The entire trip was enjoyable, but Elizabeth, the yoga instructor, really made the trip for me. She is friendly, helpful, and one of the best teachers I've ever studied under. The grounds are beautiful and the service is great. I would definitely recommend it!

Our family of five stayed here for a week in March 2017. Several factors contributed to the poor rating, but mainly the noise of the place made this a very unrelaxing stay. A very large construction project going on right next door meant hammering and machine tools every weekday morning at 7 a.m., and continuing throughout the day. No coverings...
