I am officially the world's pickiest person (read my other reviews!) and I was really surprised by how much I liked Plaza Pelicanos, especially after being completely frightened by the reviews I read. As a disclaimer, I will say that we went there as part of a timeshare and not just as a regular hotel guest, so there may have... More

We have just returned from a week at the Plaza Pelicanos. Although the hotel grounds were well manicured and clean, our room was terrible. There were ants everywhere and our airconditioner didn't work. It took three days for it to be fixed, and then broke again. The management did nothing to change our room to be more comfortable despite a... More

We have just returned from a wonderful stay in Peurto Vallarta. The first two weeks and the last week were spent at the Pelicanos. We booked through our R.C.I. time share (one bedroom first two weeks and two bedrooms the last week) and so were staying in the time share portion of the units. Our first week was on the... More

I'm currently at the Plaza Pelicanos Club section of the hotel as i write theses lines. The hotel has two sections. One CLUB and the GRAND section. The Club is not on the beach. I was supposed to be on the GRAND section but i don't know why they say i have a CLUB formula. The worst here is the... More

I don't know if it was the time of year (April) but there were way too many locals during our stay. Daily activities were dominated by non-english speaking people. We barely took part in any pool activities or socialized with any others at the resort at night. We stayed in Section 2. Were able to use all the facilities shared... More

Okay. I was pretty sceptical about staying here after reading the reviews. Here's how it is. Shell Vacation Club bought some/all of the resort a few years ago. It has 3 places to stay: Section 1 (mainly a hotel), Beach Club (again I believe a hotel setting) and Section 2 which has an old an new part. We stayed in... More

We were in for a change this year, after twice staying in Cancun, and no one had been here, so.... We arrived in typical tourist mode, waiting for the lines at the airport, and were suprised by the lack of it. On to the Hotel, where the two parties of us tried to check in. One couple had no problem... More

First, let me say that the room itself was good. Great view of the ocean with a huge balconey. The maid service was good and daily. Upon checking in, my parents were told that the 2 bedroom that they had booked was not available. After 1 full day of contacting various people at the resort, my parents were able to... More
