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

Room was great, always clean. Food and service by the staff were exceptional. Some noisy guests made sleeping a little difficult at times. Close to town and easy to access transit. We found it was a great hotel to use as a "home base" for other excursions. The beach beds are awesome for relaxing for a whole day after sightseeing... More

Stayed April 26th-May 1st. Clean resort. Room was very nice. In the older section King bed and balcony. Only ate breakfast at the hotel even with the all inclusive package had way better meals in town and on the el malcecon. The omelette lady was great. No problem ever getting a pool chair even late morning. Our only complaint was... More

Hotel staff were very friendly always happy to see you. Mario and Abi the activity staff were great fun and always had fun stuff for us to do. Organising nights out and taking us kayaking as well as all the other organised activities. These guys made our stay! Hotel was always exceptionally clean. If you want to keep your drinks... More

This was our second trip to Puerto Vallarta and even though the resort was older and smaller, the location and exceptional friendliness of the staff made this a great vacation. Leslie was especially helpful, with competent answers to any question. We felt safe and welcome here and would go back.

Loved this hotel. People were really nice, the pool was warmed, the food was ok, the amenities were clean, location was good. I would recommend. The only thing that really bugged me (and when I say bug, it's to stay polite) is that the bottled water were not free. They give you 2 small bottles a day for free in... More

After reading some of the reviews I was quite worried for the trip. But after staying at Plaza Pelicanos I realized I had nothing to worry about. The staff was unbelievably amazing and caring. Mario, Abe, and Paulino were exceptionally great! They always had activities and were extremely helpful. The restaurants all have amazing food and are not repetitive at... More
