We have just returned from our 4th year in a row visit to Sol Pelicano (Mar 7-14). I have to admit, that if it is a spectacular beach you are looking for, this is the spot! It is amazing, white sand, and you can walk forever! The staff at this resort is most accomodating, and I truly believe they work extremely hard to keep this place the best they can. From the grounds keepers, to the maids, and to the waiters etc.
One thing I do notice in the 4 years, is that things are looking a little "tired", but that being said, kudos go to the staff who work diligently on the grounds themselves, as well as keeping the hotel blocks spotless. I can't imagine staff being more polite, and always smiling.
We did notice a decline in the food quality this year in particular. One thing most of all, is the food was rarely hot, unless you went to the "grill as you wait" line. (Was the best bet).
The selection of food was not the greatest this year either. Rather disappointing. While I was more adventururous in food choices, fish etc....my partner survived the week on potatoes (cold most of the time), and bread.
I have noticed alot of negative comments about the towels, but I will say we did not have any issues....perhaps just luck??
I think the strong points, being as mentioned the amazing beach, wonderful staff, and that feeling of "home away from home" for us will bring us back yet again for a 5th time....but maybe we will pack a few more "emergency rations"...just in case.
By the way, the best hotel blocks to go for are 4200, 4300, or 4400....great views of the ocean!
See you all next yesr!!
