Pelican Eyes offers a stunning hillside location and panoramic views of San Juan del Sur and the ocean beyond .

Infinity pools, spacious accommodations, romantically lush gardens, wonderful restaurants, open air bars, and one-of-a-kind San Juan Del Sur coastline sailing adventure are a unique experience.

A visit to Casa Tranquila 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 concierge) 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. Tucked into a lush nook on the expansive Nicaraguan hillside resort, Casa Tranquila is a calming space shaded by natural flora.

This Central America spa exists for your relaxation, recovery and comfort. The therapists are highly skilled in the latest massage and body care techniques, so plan a visit during your San Juan Del Sur vacation. Some Special Rate reservations are charged immediately and are non-changeable and non-refundable. Hotel provides also barbecue area, lobby and reception.

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 conditions, please feel free to consult our reception staff. Studios and townhouses are private and secluded, but also farther from hotel services. Please keep this in mind when making your reservation.

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!

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.

Odd layout!

The hotel is very dsconnected, with multiple entrances to different parts of the property connected by a "public road" with gates. Services and pool space is very limited. They allow non-guests in to the resort to use the facilities and receive complimentary drinks for a very small fee, which is unfair to the real paying gusets of the resort. The car service that they provide to get around the property and into town was very responsive.and timey.. Beatiful view from room. Booked the sailboat tour, but was cancelled due to too much wind. Was Dissapointed....

Nice Place with private casitas and a cool pool.

We were greeted warmly and check in was OK. We got some cold towels to clean our faces and others received welcome drinks. We had some issues with our A/C. The Pina Coladas at the Pool were nice (go non-dairy). The spa was beautiful (double check your booking). The show on Wednesday is fun. Drinks are supposed to be half off. We had some hiccups but were compensated appropriately by the manager. We will definitely be back! It is beautiful and the plentiful staff is attentive.

Fill your fridge with some cold ones from any market down the road as the Cascada is not cheap.

Great location, great stuff, facilities need improvement

While the Pelican delivers great service and a stunning location, there are a few things to keep in mind with this hotel: 1. There are A LOT of stairs. You will be walking up and down outdoor stairs wherever you go. 2. The hotel needs a large-scale capital improvement project - as it's starting to get down. For example, many of the bricks in the stairs/walkways have been hollowed-out and are easy to trip on. Also, many outdoor lightbulbs were not replaced. Same principle goes for the rooms. 3. As in anywhere in this part of Nicaragua, there is a daily battle to keep critters out. For our trip, this included mosquitos, spiders, (large) ants, and even a small mouse that was able to slip under the door. Despite what I've written above, I would still marginally recommend the Pelican as it's one of the nicest hotels in SJDS.
