Pelican Eyes Hotel and Resort San Juan del Sur Reviews
Pelican on the hill Jun 11, 2014
Pelican Eyes is nested on the hill hugging the San Juan del Sur. It is nothing else than perfect location for the sunsets and enjoyment in beautiful colors that spread all over the sky. I usually stay in hostels in town, but this time opportunity was there and we took really nice villa for a night.
Aside of the great views I totally love the design of the place, design elements that they used to make it feel right and the style of buildings. Vilas are scattered all over the hill with small paths crossing everywhere. There are few infinity pools around and that is where you can find most of the people during the day. Main pool is at the restaurant and bar area (my favorite place) right under the reception and it is perfect if you don’t mind people watching you from their dining table. I LOVE the architecture and the way they designed everything. Most of elements are very organic with lots of wood, brick and tiles all over. Paths are especially cool, hugging the slopes and curving up the hill with nice white walls and brick flooring. Main restaurant has high dome covered with straw on the wooden crossed roofing that made me stare up for a while. Usage of the real just debarked and protected wood connected with ropes is beautiful and gives particular feeling to this place. The whole place is definitely made with great vision and lots of passion. I also love contrast of white curtains flowing around with brown wooden pieces and terracotta tiles. There is enough shade for all of you that get burned easily. Most of the people don’t go to the ocean and just hang in the pools but that is probably because the bay is not that good for swimming.
Our place was super nice and specious with everything you need to stay. Bathroom had nice tiles and clear tile wall shower that was generally just making a bit of divide but making whole bathroom look even bigger than it is. Every place has a balcony with chairs and hammocks to chill and enjoy the breeze coming from the bay. Surrounding is well maintained and green with lots of nice flowers and palms. Villas have little bar and nice kitchen areas that are very tastefully designed and inviting. Bedroom was perfect, with lots of windows, with an AC (that I don’t use) and beautiful bed platforms that are built into the flooring. There are so many details all over the place that you will have to see it to enjoy it…
Wireless internet is available all over, but best enjoyed with a cocktail at bars around the property. They organize different entertainment and the service is great. I love their mojitos and variety of small eats but did not try the food because I like to explore other places aside of the places I stay in.
This hotel also have condominium part which is bothered with misuse of funds and not really finished in the right way, but that fact does not disturb the hotel area or its function. Place is on the pricey side of spectrum, but you get what you pay for.
