Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

In one of the most underestimated and yet-to-be-discovered beach vacation destinations, Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa – a Preferred Boutique property, part of the Preferred Hotel Group – exhibits everything that makes coastal Nicaragua so special. Overlooking a spectacular crescent-shaped bay in San Juan del Sur, this highly awarded Central America resort showcases gracious hospitality, luxurious accommodations, flavorful cuisines, and world-class amenities. A wide range of room options includes studios, suites, townhouses, and full homes, all of which feature air conditioning, satellite televisions, purified water systems, private terraces, and either kitchenettes or full gourmet kitchens. Soaring cane ceilings, elegant arched windows and doorways, exposed natural woods, and handcrafted furniture make every guest space bright and inviting in atmosphere, welcoming you to relax and unwind, letting your every worry melt away. Casa Tranquila Spa offers a full range of blissful massage and wellness treatments, and you can also take advantage of on- site vinyasa yoga, featuring sessions on the resort's scenic wooden deck overlooking the ocean.

The resort and surrounding area are brimming with options for adventure and exploration, and the concierge can assist in arranging a day full of your favorite activities. On the ocean, sailing and surfing are two of the most popular sports, due much in part to the region's excellent surf breaks, un-crowded beaches, and opportunities for enthusiasts of all skill and experience levels. Sailing becomes extra special as you navigate through secluded bays, watching the local sea life and enjoying views of the horizon and shore. The resort is home to two distinctive restaurants offering options for dining day and night. The open-air La Cascada Bar & Restaurant allows you to enjoy a meal al fresco or by candlelight, both of which afford ocean views, with a menu featuring local ingredients and signature Nicaraguan dishes. Bistro La Canoa is surrounded by winding brick walkways and lagoons of lush bougainvillea, offering a relaxing breakfast or lunch, in additional to poolside beverages throughout the day. Find your very own place of peace and relaxation, at Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa.

We booked the resort from Germany (a standard double room) and stayed in a lovely two-storied and very well-kept villa (Casa Paz) as it was the off-season. It was quiet but the downsides included long walks to both breakfast and all pools. As the manager explained to us they only have five proper hotel rooms while the other rental units might be called a time-share property. This might explain the layout of the 25 hectars which makes it rather difficult to walk (stairs often slippery when wet). One of the major problems, though, is that the staff neither speak enough English nor seem to care that much about proper customer service as was blatantly evident regarding several issues we encountered during our one-week stay (no towels, no cushions, no breakfast, problems with yoga classes etc.). Overall I thought the food - in particular breakfast- mediocre and overpriced compared to town. The pools were lovely and serene most of the time if they had not played two different kinds of music at the same time. The villas are a bargain. I would strongly suggest some improvement if they are aiming at European tourists. What struck me was the lack of solar panelling.

Pelican Eyes is located a little above San Juan with a wonderful view of the bay. It has three beautiful pools, a restaurant, and a bar. There are some hotel rooms, but most guests stay in studio apartments or houses. We were in Casa Paz which has a kitchen, living room, bedroom, two bathrooms, and two balconies with a spectacular view of the ocean. The house is about a 15-minute walk from the reception and the restaurant. The staff is friendly, but their English is very bad so that they cannot answer the most basic questions. The yoga classes take place in the butterfly garden, which is a nice idea, but the place is often wet, even the mats were soaked a few times, and extremely slippery which made some poses impossible. Another problem is that the garden is open to the public during classes, which means there are people walking around, talking and taking pictures.

My daughter and I stayed at Pelican Eyes Resort for 4 nights in July of 2017. We had a wonderful time! Some of the things we liked: * The staff was very friendly and treated us like family. The resort wasn't crowded by any stretch of the imagination (this is the low season?) so we were very recognizable. They took the time to get to know us. Very helpful and friendly. * Incredible views! This is an understatement. They were really beautiful. * Location near town. Definitely walkable to town. * Very reasonable pricing in the hotel. More expensive than in town but that is to be expected. With daily afternoon happy hour, cocktails were downright inexpensive. * Very unique and stunning room layouts with great views of the ocean and wonderful patios. Specifically my daughter loved having her "own room" as a loft up a tall spiral staircase. And this was not a villa. Cons: * The stairs * The stairs * The stairs We counted about 70 stairs from the lobby down to town. Our particular room was 35 stairs down and 95 stairs up. We were in the lower half of the property. The upper pool was probably another 150 stairs up (with many casas up there too). Minor room issues: * No vent in the bathroom so it got a little stuffy and sometimes a little smelly. * A/C wall units made temperature inconsistent. Overall we loved our visit and would definitely return!

Without a doubt this hotel has one of the best locations in town. Great views from every area of the resort and amazing infinity pools. Breakfast was delicious. The resort is very large and we had to request transportation to the lobby, which was usually prompt. The downside is that the ride to town was a $5 taxi ride. I would of liked for the hotel offer a shuttle to town. Overall it's a beautiful place and good service!

I have stayed at Pelican Eyes several times in the past as it has breath taking views of the bay..But now I find my self extremely dissapointed as the New Owners/ Management has decided to let this amazing place rot. It has begun to look uncared for (based on the room we were provided). Maintanance needs to address some insect problems..roaches, salamanders, and other bugs that were common inside the room. When first seeing the room I immediately smelled the mildew and was assured that housekeeping would take care of it. I find myself at a cross roads as I love the views but I will not be coming back to this establishment ...Dissapointed..😔
