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.

Reviews for Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa
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 food kept coming and coming. We preplanned the party and it was a great value considering all of the homemade food and ability to use the pool afterwards.
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 became stomach ill during the trip but they took care of me, gave me all medicine on courtesy and attended like I was at home. Even Daniela, the reception manager, took me to town for doctors checkup! The only downside is that the site requires a bus to be taken in between the main restaurant and the villas. But other than that. it is greatly recommended! I definitely plan to return with my family soon within the year.

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 on the upper parts of the windows meant we were up with the birds at sunrise every morning, about 5:45 a.m. Along with the birds at sunrise, there was a daily cacophony of barking dogs and crowing roosters from the poor neighborhood that surrounds the property. During our 4th night, a squirrel took up residence right outside our bedroom window and screeched his squirrel calls starting at 3 a.m. and continuing on and off throughout the next couple of days. The squirrel was so loud, it sounded like it was in our room. On Monday morning, our 6th morning at Pelican Eyes, we were awakened at 4:45 a.m. by the sound of fireworks, which continued on and off throughout the morning, alternating with firecrackers/dynamite blasts, maybe part of the construction sight next door. Every time we approached the front desk with a problem or question, they seemed annoyed to interact with us. Service at the restaurant was painfully slow, and one morning after waiting for over a half hour for our food, we had to simply get up and leave because our tour bus could not wait any longer for us. A few pros: the view from our unit was beautiful (Casa Vista al Mar). Very spacious and clean two bedroom unit. Some of the staff were very friendly. Convenient location to town, walking distance to everything. I have plenty of other things I could write in this review, but I think the above information is probably enough to give you a good idea. I wouldn't stay here. You will be disappointed.

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.
