Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

If a stunning beach is your vacation priority, look no further. Everyone raves about the stunning white sand, turquoise waters and calm seas here. Perfect for a low-key vacation whether you're a couple, a family, or anyone looking for complete relaxation. And the staff garner rave reviews for their enthusiasm, friendliness and service.

Location: Beachfront, 10 minutes from Juan Vitalio Acuna International Airport, 11 minutes to Pueblo.

Was a wee bit disappointed

It took us just 15 minutes to get bussed to the Hotel . Front desk was quick getting our rooms .However before we could get off , we were attacked by Elite Cuban Mosquito brigade . With that , and ending in a room that was far below my expectation , it was not a good start . However , after complaining the next day , I was resigned another room , which was superb . I will say , service was good except the international restaurant . Right through our stay no shrimp was served and on one occasion , there was no red wine for lunch at the beach restaurant .By the way , there is no buffet for lunch . Generally speaking , though the food selection is smalI , the quality was acceptable . The beach is good . Weed is not excessive and that can be expected .

Great Staff...but thats it! Everything was Ok!

So we flew from YYZ to Cuba. Flying with Air Cubana.Afternoon flight and the flight was delayed 30 minutes. It's fine I guess.Get around Cayo Largo around 8pm. Custom was fast and baggage pickup was on point. Probably the fastest drop off ever.As soon as I got out of custom, our baggage's were already there.Waiting for the Bus to come, me and family were swarmed by flock of mosquitoes.Since you couldn't bring any aerosol and or spray on your carry on. We were RED MEAT for this suckers!ONE THING that pissed me off already once the Bus got there, as we were giving the luggage's to Bus driver/Loader. He immediately was asking for MONEY. WTF..seriously???This didn't sit right with me right away, usually once we arrive to the resort, we give $5 /tip. *(Canadian)So watch out for this, this wasn't cool at all. Check in hotel was a bit of a wait, since there were only 2-3 people working at 9pm. We were greeted by a group of singers called ONI-ONI.Nicest bunch of singers. My daughter immediately maid a friend with Angelica and the band! GET the CD for $10cuc. Support them and they were pretty good! So after we checked in and got to the room, we were starving at this point it's 9:30pm kids were hungry and Air Cubana offered a snack pretty late and it was a hard ham/lettuce bagel. Food at the buffet was decent a lot of flavour I must add.Our server at the buffet was Adolfo.Nicest guy ever! make sure you say Hello! Buffet location was left side as soon as you see it and enter from the tower! ROOM: Our room was on the right side of the lobby. It was decent, dated like most Cuban resort that you pay for like this. A/C was great! Most common issue was it's not strong enough. If you like the that then get this Building. Only downfall is that it's close to the pool and lobby war/Entertainment area (stage)So at night at 1:30am you can still hear the music blasting.If you want some peace and quite, go towards the beach. But you would need to pay $10cuc/day.One thing i didn't like also was the SAFE deposit box. You would need to rent this out $2cuc/day. So if you don't want to rent that a day. Better lock up your luggage's before you head out to the beach or anywhere! Pool Area: jump into the pool and splash... it's SALT water. It was different i guess, but this wasn't pleasing to your eyes. Might I add that the water feels like someone turned on the heater. Definitely shower off when you get off the pool. It was kept clean which really matters.Only wish they had a pool up swimming bar, made it easier to get drinks.TIP: Get there early, drop off a couple of towels on the chairs, they go out fast and with limited amount of shades. You wouldn't want to be in the sun melting.BEACH: Well the beach was nice.. i think.First time in Cayo Largo, we thought the waters would be calmer than Dominican. In our week stay the waters from the beach was rough. We went in the water once and thought it was OK. But nope. Beach was covered in Seaweed..nobody took the time to rake it up, it was bad. And if you don't mind that seaweed smell .. i guess you can't complain.I hear playa Sirena was more calmer, you had to schedule a bus trip and pay $5cuc for it and once you get there you had to pay them another $2 cuc to get the beach chairs.FOOD: Overall it wasn't bad. It's a lot better than some of the resorts we've been to in Cuba (Cayo Santa Maria & Cayo Coco)BBQ: Charcoal chicken and rabbit by the pool was good. Freshly cookedIt was the first time we had rabbit, taste like chicken...(everything taste like chicken lol)Lobby Bar pizza was decent.Now at most places and resort the Burgers are to rave about...but I found the beef a little undone and uncooked. Try to stay away from it, just order hotdogs and tuna sandwich at the pool restaurantBeach restaurant aka "THE RANCH" this was a great spot to eat! Fish cooked daily but the ribs they had was amazing.Most tastiest food we had there. Couldn't get enough. If we had to rate our overall trip it would 3 out of 5. It had it's moment.The staff was great. It's just sad to see the beach was not as pleasant as it was. And we all know Cuba is known for it's beachesIf we go back it'll have to be at Playa Sirena / or back to Cayo Santa Maria! Pay a little more to get that nicer beach.Thanks Hotel Pelicano! You'll be missed..

Place with great potential

Me and my wife and two girls ages 10 to 13 stayed at the Pelicano from the 5th of August to the12th.....This ressort is somewhat very small but very one day you pretty well find your way around......the grounds are somewhat very old and need to be redone.....the rooms are renovated around 25 percent.....the buffet is okay and so is the a la carte resto s.....the beach is beautifull when it is calm and clean.....some days you would have a red flag with lots of weeds inside.......the pool ground is okay in general.......the water inside appears to be ocean salted water........the kids pool is often empty.....would be a good idea to combine both pools and make one huge one pool with a bar in the water........all these factors makes this a place that is more or less enchanting.....however I have been to any places in Cuba and this is the first time that I can say that the Cuban people really made me feel at home and welcomed....evryone from the front desk to the animation team to the towel person,you felt that people wanted to be your friend or make your stay the best ever.....for that and only that point I can say that the Pelicano at Cayo Largo is a ressort that is fun to go to and with a couple of renovations here and their the place can become a future stay for all Canadians....looking forward to see you again Pelicano.....thanks for the memories.....
