We stayed in the pelican's roost in February. There are five units (3 buildings) and the hotel was full the entire time we were there. The thing I liked best was there is so much room and different seating areas that we never had to "share" with other guests. I had a hammock for the entire day and was able to read my book in peace and quiet. Between the pool area, the "smoking area" (an area above the restaurant), a palapa area, the rocking chairs on the front porch of the units - each place provides an area to sit and relax. The landscaping was just lovely and well maintained. Right in front of the hotel the beach is very rocky - it provides endless watching of crashing waves, but no swimming. Around the point is the beach at domincalito, which is okay for swimming, beginning surfing. The beach is great for walking. Our room had a full kitchen, including a blender and a coffee pot (with coffee and filters!). The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. We loved the pizza! The staff was great and helpful. The rooms were clean. If I had one criticism, we could sometimes hear our neighbor's voice, but it was rare. I can't wait to return.
