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...

We were able to use the infinity pool, eat, drink and watch the sunset across the bay, without staying in the hotel. Dinner wonderful. Service by the pool excellent and responsive to our requirements.

I wrote a positive review on Pelican Eyes a few years ago. I stand by that review and will add more here. The close to town, but separated location, is ideal. You have the best of both worlds. There are exclusive Nicaragua Luxury Hotels but they are remote and disconnect you from local culture. At Pelican Eyes you can have...

Pelican Eyes is a gorgeous resort. Stunning setting, looking out over the beautiful bay of Sun Juan del Sur, with three infinity pools and two bar/restaurants, each with tremendous views. My family had a fantastic six night vacation here, and would give it a strong recommendation on most aspects. The resort of Pelican Eyes is not top-range, but being in...

Pelican Eyes is not only a beautiful resort destination, but an ideal place to host a dream wedding. I was a bit nervous to plan a destination wedding as I thought details would slip through the cracks and I would be disappointed. I couldn't have been more wrong! Joel Lennon was an absolute delight to work with and ensured me...

I visited Nicaragua for my second time this year and stayed at the wonderful Pelican Eyes hotel. THE BEST! The views are amazing, the pools are fantastic and the food is to die for. A must stay when visiting San Juan Del Sur. I will 100% be back!
