No frills here but the location is pretty good and it was quiet. The hotels bar on the beach wasn't great(don't eat there) and the prices were high. There are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants off of main street which is WAY overpriced(cafe andrade is a good one). The price of this hotel, however, was reasonable considering the prices of...

Great room with King Bed and nice bath. The view from the balcony was awesome. The staff was always pleasant and very helpful. Could hear the music from the club a couple doors down ---but not bothersome to me Thanks

Beach towel can be obtained from the reception are with towel card provided at check in. No elevator, but is only two floors. One of the rooms we were assigned to has a... More

I stayed for 10 days in February 2015 at the Pelicanos inn located on the beach on eighth street in Playa Del Carmen. 95% of the clientele here or Europeans. I don't see this hotel advertised on any websites so either you know about it or you don't. Anyway I'm sure most Americans wouldn't enjoy staying here- as it doesn't... More

I have stayed at many hotels in PDC but this was my first time staying at the Pelicano Inn. I booked an ocean view room online. Then a friend and her family decided to join me and we were unable to get another room online. I traveled to PDC for a brief visit prior to actually staying at the Pelicano... More

Pelicano Inn has the perfect location in PdC, right on the beach and a block away from the Main Street. We had a room facing the courtyard in order to get away from the nearby bar noise! The courtyard is nice, however the mosquitoes liked it as well... The room was average size with two beds, a large balcony and... More

Just back from a week at this hotel, fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff, good value for money. Rooms are basic but clean, nice garden area. Breakfast served from the restaurant directly in front of the beach, an amazing start to the day.

I stayed here for one night in the sea front apartment (130 USD). The room was massive with a nice powerful shower and large king size bed with ocean views. Considering what you would pay most places for the location and view it is excellent value. The breakfast the next day was pretty good as well. I left my iPod... More
