For the seaside village below, the Piedras y Olas Hotel’s chalk-white villas and walls twirl up the San Juan del Sur mountainside in intricate patterns, topped by red tile roofs. The four-star resort’s two gourmet restaurants overlook three swimming pools, which in turn overlook the half-moon San Juan del Sur harbor. Both literally and figuratively, the Pelican Eyes... Piedras y Olas Hotel and Resort Hotel & Resort is high above nearly ever other Nicaragua hotel.
Yet while the high-class Piedras y Olas Resort could easily isolate itself from the San Juan del Sur community below, it chooses to do the opposite. Because of the A. Jean Brugger Foundation, San Juan del Sur and Piedras y Olas are inextricably entwined.
“The heart of the hotel is the foundation,” says Jiff Cornwell, Resident Manager for the Piedras y Olas Hotel & Resort.
