Rented a casa with another couple. Truly a home away from home. Pleanty of space two baths.The walk is a bit challanging, even to get to the pools and upper restaurant. We didn't mind though. Had most meals in town. Overall a good time. Not many high end lodging choices in town.

Room Tip: Choose a room casa close to office parking if you have trouble walking

We had a nice experience at Pelican Eyes. We were celebrating a birthday and they reserved the best table in the restaurant for us. The server even sang happy b`day solo. The food was good, not great.

Our room was awesome (Casa Brazil). Views were incredible! Beds comfy and clean. Maybe a little too pricey.

Pool by restaurant was a little too dirty for us to want to swim there, but luckily they have 2 additional pools beyond that one that were clean and inviting.

We had a couples massage that was fantastic. An unexpected treat was the glass of wine after the massage and two chairs to watch the sunset.

They provide driving service that we took advantage of once before realizing how close everything is.

The electricity went out (like it often does in Nica) when we were trying to checkout. The staff handled the situation professionally and the best they could for the situation.

Room Tip: Casa Brazil is beautiful, but lots of stairs to get to it but also close to the good pools.

This resort is outdated. The facilities are fine, but not anything spectacular & certainly do not warrant the prices. The place is more like a condo/country club.

Booked using Groupon, and got a pretty good deal. The staff here is super, super friendly. Best sunset view in the city on their double-decker infiniti pool. The whole property is beautiful. Gorgeous actually. The front desk can easily accomodate whatever you need with drivers to take you wherever you want to go (at a charge). Loved it here and the city of San Juan del Sur itself is so charming. The on-location spa is pretty fantastic too. One of the masks used herbs grown on the property; it was so good, we asked for extra to take home. Great place, great people.

Room Tip: Try to stay in a room near the pool or the front desk. The property is pretty sprawling, so staying...

Breathtaking views... yes... Location... great. ...if you don't mind bed bugs!

I stayed at the Pelican Eyes Resort and Spa in Feb 2012 with some friends, and the beds in the Casa we had booked was completely infested with bedbugs -- to the point where we could visibly see the bugs crawling on the mattress. The staff at the reception desk did not fully grasp the seriousness of the issue and only reluctantly -- and after having wasted half of our day -- moved us to a different casa. There again, some of the beds were visibly infested with bedbugs, so for the remainder of the trip we could not use one of the rooms at all, forcing half of us to sleep on the couch.

Even worse -- back in the U.S., two of us had to seek medical attention for a severe allergic reaction to the bedbug bites wasting more time and money on cortisone shots and antibiotics.

The staff also seemed to not communicate very well with each other... promising one thing one day... and another thing the next. Personally, would never recommend it!
