Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa is a walking property with MANY stairs, and may not be suitable for all guests. If you require special consideration due to physical limitations or health considerations, please feel free to consult our reception staff. Also, we offer Sailing Trips and Spa services.

Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa is located in a mountain overlooking the bay in the charming fishing village of San Juan del Sur, on the stunning Pacific Coast of Nicaragua.

Pelican Eyes offers a distinctive blend of gracious hospitality, local charm, unique architectural style and commitment to the community, all in a unique setting that blends harmoniously with the natural environment and local culture.

It is the perfect setting for families and couples looking for an exceptional experience. Here you will find local forest and fauna such as monkeys, squirrels, insects and much more all in a tropical environment.

Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa is divided in two phases connected by harmonious red brick stair trails or an external road accessed by vehicle. It has 52 accommodation units with ocean and garden view divided in 2 bedroom Casas with one or two baths that fix perfect for families of 4 to 6 people, 1 bedroom townhouses, efficiency studios ideal for honeymooners and standard hotel rooms in combinations of 2 queen beds or 1 King bed.

Additionally, the resort has three infinity pools, two restaurants offering national and international cuisine, a 41 feet sailboat with capacity for up to 20 people, spa services at Tranquila Day Spa, a conference room for small or medium corporate groups, a perfect setting for destination weddings and offers honeymoons. Ask to Front Desk for local and regional excursion and activities such as surf lesson, horseback riding, guided trips to Granada, Masaya and Ometepe, zip lining, and much more. All attractions located in one same place.

A visit to Tranquila Day Spa is an experience of sheer indulgence. The hotel offers a menu of massage and body treatments to ensure that you truly relax on your romantic Nicaraguan getaway.

Experience more of Nicaragua with day trips to Granada or the artisan markets in Masaya. Here at the resort, open air yoga classes, water aerobics, and active local excursions (arranged by the Guest Service) help keep you fit while visiting paradise. Even the brick stairs-winding up the hillside - contribute to the cause.

San Juan del Sur hotel's mission is to provide a unique and memorable Nicaragua vacation experience in every aspect of your stay. The friendly staff endeavors to fulfill every possible need or special request (and to predict those wishes perhaps not yet even realized!) No request is too big or too small.

From business retreats to family reunions and birthday parties, the hotel offers a full array of specially designed events to suit your needs. Whether you are planning a rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, or a baptism, you can count on the professional staff at Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa to make it happen.

Beautiful hotel with breathtaking views

The hotel is located on top of a hill overlooking the horseshoe beach of San Juan del Sur. the view from the rooms is amazing, especially the sunset. All the rooms are in stand alone cabins, with kitchen and a porch. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Good wifi. There are two enterinity pools, the upper pool has even better view. Few drawbacks: spa services have short operating hours; resort has multiple stairs, which might be challenging for some (hotel offers a shuttle service to the upper pool); there are tons of ants and other bugs in the room (expected being so close to nature), we also saw few small geckos.

By Land Cruiser to Breakfast / Posh but Bonkers!

This is the craziest hotel I have ever stayed in. Our double room was in fact a two storey house complete with two levels & two balconies. Fixtures & furniture were all first class & in Spanish American style. The air-con system, however, was impossible to fathom & the hotel could not provide us with something as simple as a hair dryer. Location is the main problem here. The resort is set on a steep hillside above San Juan del Sur & many of its house are high above the reception area reached only by a stiff climb or by the hotel's fleet of Land Cruisers! To get to breakfast it is necessary to call reception and ask for a ride down. Sure, there is an infinity pool but do you want to be driven there & back!? Crazeee!

Fantastic Paradise

I have been in this hotel three times this year and planing my fourth for my anniversary. My husband gave me two choices Hawaii or Eye Pelican and my choice was done in half a second!. This hotel is very safe, relaxing, clean, we'll maintain and their employees are amazing!. The beach only 5 minutes away (: (:

Great Location

Great view with a very accommodating staff. Transportation provided for a minimal fee, and very helpful setting up anything you wanted to do. We took advantage of the sailboat for a very reasonable charge and had a great time sailing to another beach, swimming, and sailing back at sunset. The staff was great on the boat, and we had a nice time talking with them and laughing, enjoying the day.

Great stay!

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We were a family of 26, ranging from 7 to 89 years. The staff was really terrific, the hotel was beautiful, and the restaurant fantastic. Only recommendation would be to request a room around one of the pools. There are a lot of steps and otherwise, the room could be remote. The best place to stay in San Juan. Highly recommended.

If you never want to leave your room great

Only cleaned room twice in four days. Only left shampoo once. Way, way, way too many steps. Pools were not clean. They let outside people use pool for $5 a day although you are paying a minimum of $200 a day to stay there. Drinks are US prices and had ants in them and my husband had to pour his out. You had to fight ants for your food. Any food you bought had to be kept in refrig. Would not stay there again.
