“Great Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had a great time at this Resort. Can not say enough about the service and hospitality. From the front desk (Alfredo) to the Kid's Club coordinator (Anna) and our waiter (Victor). We had a great time at this Resort and plan on going back.
We are time share owners and we had the tower with ocean view suites. Were able to get one of the rooms mentioned in previous reviews (1384). The room had a wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean and far enough not to really hear the pool noise.
We did the update (not a lot of pressure), which included a breakfast at the resort next door (Sunset Plaza). There were some additional promotions (bus tour and 20% spa discount). One we definitely used was the 50% off on the all-inclusive package, ended up being cheaper to eat at the hotel then on the economy. The food was better than average and we really liked the flan.
Entertainment was good. The first night was a circus (without the animals), that the kids really enjoyed.
One point, the all-inclusive is for food and beverage, other activities (ie, Kids Club) is not included. However, the $20 we paid for the Kids Club was well worth it.
One more point, on the bus tour, there was a stop at a distillery. Brought back some really good tequila from Don Tadeo.
Definitely planning on going back.

Room Tip: Tower suites with ocean view (1384)

We had an amazing experience on our babymoon. It was quite and relaxing which was perfect for us. We didnt deal with any drunk people and loud music.

It was nice to switch between pool areas and the outside vendors where great to pickup souvenirs.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this resort last December and this January. Very clean rooms, The staff were always kind & friendly. We had no complaints about the food. The New Years Eve celebration was absolutely fabulous. The work that is involved to pull that off was unbelievable to see. They have 6 double beds set up on the outer patio facing the ocean. I spent many a day there sun tanning. I would totally recommend this facility and I would definitely stay there again.

Plaza Pelicanos Grand Beach Resort is a smaller and older resort with good food and a friendly staff - Lucy makes some great omelette's, we went on a all inclusive trip that was very affordable. The resort is centrally located right on the beach with downtown just a few minutes away (great shopping) The pool and beach are great, lots off interesting vendors walking by - if you do not want to buy something just say no thanks (no gracias) and they will be on there way, they are just trying to make a living. There might be a lot of kids on some days I think the locals come for the day to use the pool, ,but there are some lounge chairs with umbrellas and daybeds of to the side that are private and quiet. The beach is small but you can walk quite a way down and check out other resorts We found some great beach sea glass. We did have a threat of hurricane Carlos looming down the coast but it really never hit us. It did rain at night but it felt good. There is free Wi-Fi in the lobby but not in your room - The A/C worked great.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to have different floor plans, are room had a kitchen and a small balcony - ( t...

Very friendly staff. Could use some updating however. Loved the buffet for breakfast but would want to eat there for dinner every night. Go into town, Puerto Vallarta has some fantastic restaurants. Close to downtown and the marina and the airport.

The resort is our style. Very comfortable, clean, and most times relaxing. Nothing fancy. However, depending on the time of year you plan to stay there you can run in to some problems with patrons that visit the hotel that are NOT timeshare members. Our last stay there May 2015 had a very terrible last three day ending. There were 75 to 100 college students from Guadalajara staying there during college break. They were drinking heavily while taking over the pool, not allowing for families with children. They were loud, unruly, and rude and seemingly immature. Ok, the resort needed to have many more security people on staff and enforcing some kind of civility, at the same time. We have never experienced anything like this before. Don't go in May. That is when all heck breaks out. This is no lie. If you want to relax at this resort just leave May off your calendar. We will in the future even if it costs more. We love the resort it is kinda' like a second home to us, but not in May, anymore.
