Plaza Pelicanos Grand Beach Resort is a smaller and older resort with good food and a friendly staff - Lucy makes some great omelette's, we went on a all inclusive trip that was very affordable. The resort is centrally located right on the beach with downtown just a few minutes away (great shopping) The pool and beach are great, lots... More

Very friendly staff. Could use some updating however. Loved the buffet for breakfast but would want to eat there for dinner every night. Go into town, Puerto Vallarta has some fantastic restaurants. Close to downtown and the marina and the airport.

The resort is our style. Very comfortable, clean, and most times relaxing. Nothing fancy. However, depending on the time of year you plan to stay there you can run in to some problems with patrons that visit the hotel that are NOT timeshare members. Our last stay there May 2015 had a very terrible last three day ending. There were... More

This resort was old and mold was in the air but clean. The staff, other than the front desk, was excellent. The food was sub par, but it's an all inclusive. Worst cabs around by the resort. Beware of the cab drivers.

I spent three weeks picking the resort I would stay at, once I decided to visit Puerto Vallarta. Based on overall reviews on Tripadvisor and other web sites, I pcked the Pelicanos. Great choice!!! From Angel and Sarah at the front desk, the maids, all the staff at the buffet, and especially the reservations only restaurant (Ernesto, Ricardo, and Luis... More

The Pelicanos is truly a hidden jewel in Puerto Vallarta. This is a tough one to rate---not a true 4 Start Hotel per se, the furniture is a little dated, but everything is top notch. Comfortable bed, small fridge, coffee pot, etc. One of the more economical places we found in our search, and for the price and value---a steal.... More

All the reviews of this place are right on the money. This is NOT a four star hotel. It's more like a two star. Upon checking in, we did not get a room with two beds as per our reservation said. They gave us a king bed and told us we could change rooms the next day as they were... More

I was disappointed in this resort. Many of the reviews stated the food was excellent and the resort was relaxing and comfortable. The food was Terrible! The variety never changed and it was either bland or just over all disgusting. The resort is filled with children and locals. The English was very limited which made communicating challenging.the rooms were clean... More

My husband and I stayed here on our very first trip to Puerto Vallarta. We loved that it was all inclusive as we could eat all day if we wanted too. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Our room was huge with a king size bed. The only thing we had any problem with was that it took a while for... More
