After reading various reviews on the Pelicano I really didn't know what to think (at one point I was almost regretting my decision). We did get a great last minute price so were looking forward to the adventure. I must say we didn't have very high expectations - and we had a WONDERFUL TIME! We had a great flight with Air Transat (short stop in Havana - direct on the way home). When we first arrived I was a little taken aback with how arid the landscaping was. Our room was in block 44 (4401 - not oceanview as we were on the main floor - but we could hear the ocean from our patio and we were really only steps from the beach). We loved the location and would ask for that area again - not far from the beach or the pool or lobby. Everyone comments on how wonderful the staff are - and they are correct. The beach was a bit small when we were there - it changes daily with the tides - but it was beautiful. We walked to Playa Sirena and you feel like Robinson Caruso. The entire beach walk is beautiful and you 'barely' see a soul. We were glad we walked to Sirena but we decided that we liked our beach so much that we didn't go back (although you could take a taxi or bus there as well if you wanted to). As I said - I didn't have very high expectations but we enjoyed the food. Not 5* but it was great. Coffee in the mornings (especially in the lobby bar :) and a perfect omelette or crepe for breakfast were lovely and dinner with the musicians was fun as well. Always enjoyed my Spanish Coffee night cap too! I can't comment on the entertainment as we really do entertain ourselves at the beach all day (so are happy to go to bed relatively early). I would suggest that if you are looking for lots of action/dancing at night - this may not be the place for you. During our stay, I did go over to explore the Sol property. The vegetation is much more lush (and it did have a bit more of an upscale feel), but having stayed at Pelicano - I will look forward to returning again for another week in paradise! You really have to walk the beaches to believe it.
Our second visit was awesome just like the first time. The staff in hotel are amazing, friendly people. Made us feel comfortable. Our room was right at the beach, always clean. Food was tasty and lots of selection. Beach beautiful, water warm and big waves. We had great time in them. Playa Sirena and Paraiso are most beautiful and peaceful. We will be back next year!!!Thank you Hotel Pelicano and all staff!!!
Our trip started off bad. With Trans at. Will never fly with them again.But that's another review. . It took us 12 hours to get there.When we got there, the weather was just beautiful. From the airport to the hotel was a very short ride, maybe 5 kmService was very slow when we got to the lobbyWe paid extra for a ocean view. The resort needs a lot of TLCThe grounds were very dry and not looked after. The room was nice, a little out dated. But it kinda grew on us.The food was aweful at this resort, the worst we had in Cuba. And we have been 7 times now. The staff was very very friendly. We had Pedro and Dunia in the dining roomThey are the best!!! And the lady that cleaned our room ( Maricel ) was a sweetheart tooShe did a very good job. The beach was nice. Part clothing optional.The water was very rough tho. I like it calm. That's kinda what I expected.We visited playa Sirena, which wasn't all that. We were in Cayo Coco before at playa Pilar which was paradise. Will go back there for sure.Overall the holiday wasn't too bad. But we wouldn't go back to the same resort, sorry
Our family had a great time! All the staff was extremely helpful, polite, and friendly and after a couple of days remember your name and what you usually order, entertainers are fun (Animacion Hotel Pelicano Cuba) - it was a pleasure to dance with them, professional dancers run a new show every night, the beach is beautiful )) Will definitely go there again!
We just returned from a beautiful trip from hotel Pelicano. This resort was amazing! The staff made you feel like a celebrity. Rooms were cleaned every day. Food was great. MARIO at the beach grill was the best! Renting the quads for the day is a must!!! Best way to see the island. The people of Cuba made this trip one of my favourites!! We will return..
