We had a wonderful time at El Pelicano in December. The food was fabulous and some of the staff were excellent (especially Jason, Paola and Paula the cook). Being right next to the beach really makes the place and I went for a walk every morning. The beach is much nicer than Jaco. My kids loved the waves and did boogie boarding and surfing every day. We rented surf boards there. We were there for the live music night on Saturday and that was fun. Debbie the owner was very accessible. We'd definitely go back! There are only two things to improve: more light in the rooms as they are a bit too dark at night and to make sure the food bills are tallied after each meal and signed for as trying to do this in retrospect is difficult.
