We had a room at Pelicano Inn. Simple and clean, killer location. The room was sparse but comfortable with good working fans and A/C and a spacious bathroom. They offer free towels for the beach that you can switch out as often as you'd like. The location is awesome, just off the main strip in town for restaurants, shopping and... More

Ocean front room. View was nice. There was a televion in the room and a refrigerator. The tv in the room was a 15" computer monitor connected to a Dish receiver. The refrigerator was only big enough to keep some water and beer, but that is pretty much all. Maid service was excellent. The ocean front room has a large... More

Room was ok and beds were ok too. The staff was super nice. But no TV was more irritating then I thought it would be for a garden view room. I stayed in email 213 which was one of their larger garden view rooms. Issues were the thin walls for which you can hear your neighbors every conversation. The music... More

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

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
