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

My wife and me took a day trip into Playa Del Carmen with thoughts of eating with a sea view. As with most we firstly walked along Avenue 5, then turned down Calle 8, dropping onto the beach to be met by waiter service at the Pelicano Inn. Reassured that they did good Mexican food, we grabbed a spot in... More

This is a small inn right on the water and close to the avenida. The staff is helpful. Restaurant and cabana service is great. They will book tours. We went on whale shark with Adventuro Mexico. It was relatively quiet. Great balcony for afternoon drinks

The staff from the get go was very nice, they even allowed us to check in early (probably because they pitied me and all the sweat dripping down my face). About a 10 minute walk to the ferry and even closer to the ADO bus station. Close to all things touristy. However, what really bothered me were the mosquitos. I... More

We have stayed at Pelicano Inn several times and just love the location right at the beautiful beach. The hotel is nice and clean and the staff at the beach restaurant very friendly, especially Roberto! Love to be back one day!

this hotel has the best location, its right on the beach and 1 min walk to the middle of the main street. the beds were not very comfortable, and we did not have an air conditioning remote, so we had to have it on very cold the whole time. This was very annoying as we were freezing at night as... More
