Great but Older.
In this area this place was a great place. Safety and accommodating was the strong points. This place is getting old and needs some upgrading and repairs. It is very nicely done, just older. Loved the bathrooms!

Our entire trip to Nicaragua was wonderful. We stayed at Pelican Eyes for 1 week, in a regular room. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. It afforded stunning views of the harbor and the town below. The food in the restaurant was very good, and reasonable priced by North American standards. The staff was friendly, and always ready to be helpful. Most had difficulty in speaking English, but between their limited capabilities and ours in Spanish, and with gestures, communications were good. Word of caution: there are no elevators, and the hotel is built in a mountain side. We had the second room from the reception area, and we had to climb 50 steps to our room. There were 240 steps to the uppermost rooms. Those steps are not adequately lit at night, so some caution should be exercised. The hotel is conveniently located, within walking distance of most anything in San Juan del Sur. We would return to this hotel if we were to come back to San Juan. Photos are view from our room, both daytime and sunset.

Nice stay
Stay was great although there was a wedding the same weekend and pool and restaurant was closed in phase 2 (where I was staying) so you had to get them to come get you to bring you back to phase 1 on the other side of the property. This was a slow process sometimes. I wish that they had put me in phase 1 after knowing about the wedding. Also, the towels looked a bit weathered.

Beautiful view of San Juan del Sur
The location was fantastic and the view was wonderful. However, I had booked two rooms requesting that they be close to each other but they were at opposite ends of the complex. One was a standard style hotel room and the other was a beautiful condo style accommodation. Room #1 had issues with bugs. There was a cockroach under the covers and the bathroom was full of ants. Maintenance came and sprayed, but it was still pretty awful. Room #2 was fine. Online and when we checked in we were told we would receive a complementary breakfast so we went to it and then they told us because we booked through that we didn't qualify and tried to charge us. They did the right thing by us and waved the bill because the knew they told us upon check in that it was included. The rooms are quite spread out and a shuttle was needed to get anywhere. They were very prompt in picking us up anytime we wanted go go anywhere. Overall it was a nice place to stay.
