“Great location with a roof-top patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

I love Puerto Vallarta and have stayed in quite a few places there. the Pelicanos is one of my favorites because of the roof-top patio; it is the entire roof top of the oceanfront building on the 9th floor. There are two hot tubs, lots of attractive furniture, lounge chairs and the view is amazing. Also, they have a bar which is open at night. When the pool and beach are too noisy or crowded, this is a wonderful place to hang out- always a fresh breeze way up there with the birds and the parasailors.....
I always stay in a one bedroom unit, which is a full kitchen and living room with bath plus an adjoining bedroom and another bath. Could easily sleep 4. The decor is not particularly charming or "Mexican", but everything is clean and the bed is very comfortable. These units are located on the ocean side, with a full patio/deck running the full length of the two rooms ( with sliders)- and the beach and ocean are directly in front of you- awesome! Sunsets every night, with fireworks from the Pirate ship! I have paid to upgrade to one of these units (floor #2) - so worth it!
You can easily walk to restaurants and a Mega supermarket nearby, taxis into town are @$5.00 and always waiting right outside the hotel- but I walked into town several times- no big deal.
Friendly staff, safe atmosphere, great location, great town!

Stayed March 2014, traveled solo

I go there every year for 9 years - its my home away from home since Im a Shell Timeshare Owner - we stay in the Tower Building - ocean front rooms with kitchen living room - Other rooms have diff layouts - some not so good - bedroom below and liv room/kitchen up a spiral staircase. I love that is close to downtown - great staff - good rooms . Banks, bus stop, taco stand , restaurants, coffee, Mega store, Dr office, Liquor store, pizza, Oxxo, pharmacy, are across the walkway

Great location:near bank, groceries and department store shopping. Most rooms have beach/sea view. But beware: floors are polished and shiny but dangerously slippery when wet. So open your eyes wide, water may not be clearly seen especially at night.

We travelled april 19-26 2014
I take some time to let know people about our bad experience at this place. First of all, never, never go to this hotel when it's Easter! The local people (Mexican) have an annual allocate and they take all the place! The hotel was to much full. Cause of this it was impossible to have place, service, clean pool, clean place and quiet time! All the real travellers were really mad! Our room was a communicated room and it was impossible to sleep! Too much kids for this type of resort. Second it is not a good place to go when you hope for service and you have a particular healt situation. This hotel do not have a disco or any animation or show. So our evening was very ordinary. The most funny part was that they say wifi, bottle of water, coffee and international drink but if you want some you have to pay for it! If you want to try it, try it. It's a really nice place and the food was good, but for me and my husband we had enough! Thank you

Great room, good food, nice pool. Could use a bit more for the kids. Red flag was up the whole week we were there so we didn't go in the ocean. 1 block walk to the main street, there was a good grocery store a 5 block (or so) walk south, lots of other shops and restaurants all around.

For a resort that is not new this is a place were you don't feel like you are in an old resort. All is there available. Very clean and well maintained. Friendly and enthusiastic people. Have no complaints.
