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.

Serenity at it's best

We stayed from the 29 to the 5 of August. Hotel like most said is dated but clean. Our room was updated a bit. 4315 New flat screen TV. Grounds are clean. Pool cleaned through out the day but very hot not refreshing at all but it was also July. Beach clean also but lots of seaweeds. We paid the beach guy to save our Cabanas everyday sun way too hot without shade. Snack bar and bar on the beach for convince. Also a snack bar by the pool as well as the bar where we made our friends Roberto . As well as Louis the pool guy. He made us a beautiful painting . The waiters and waitress in the buffet were very attentive. Generous tips are very much appreciate by them and also the Maids who work very hard. Front desk always willing to help in anyway. Also the Hola sun Rep was a great help to us. We've been all over Cuba , Cato Largo was one place we ha never been. Would we return probably not . Would like to see the three remaining places we haven't visited and then we can say we have seen all parts of Cuba. If you are thinking of the Pelicano please try it the food is great and the people are super like any other parts of Cuba. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Get what you pay for.

We've just returned from the hotel pelicano. This is a nice fairly quiet little resort, friendly staff, all around nice people. The hotel is a little old and could use a darn good cleaning and some fresh paint. Our room was an ocean view, quite nice. There were a few downsides though. The room was older and had a very musty smell coming from the air conditioner (which blew quite cold thankfully). Also there were thick layers of dust both on the intake and vent from it. Above the vent mold had started to grow. We were a little bit worried about this. There was also mold growing in the wood on our windows and door to our balcony. Just a note: if you stay here run the water for a few minutes to get rid of the exit color and odour of sulfer. The dood here was pretty decent for Cuba, good selection of meats both precooked and ready to be grilled. Be prepared to line up for this as well as eggs and omelettes in the morning.Again very friendly staff always willing to help out. I already miss my pool bartenders Dinaldo and Roberto.Can't say much for the a la carte...All in all a good trip, got what we paid for and I personally would go back.....

Amazing staff, pretty decent food and beautiful oceans

My boyfriend and I went last year in the winter with another couple of friends. The hotel is decent. Nothing I'd write home about but I'm not there to sleep or stay in the rooms! The food was pretty good.. ate langoustines a lot and they were delicious! The staff was amazing and over the top to make sure we were happy! Pool was nice, the beaches were just amazing. Some of the nicest I've been too by far! We are booking our trip again here in December!

Family vacation: the good and the bad

I booked hotel pelicano based on the reviews I read on trip advisor and wasn't pleased when I actually spent a week there! The reviews were mostly positive but my experience wasn't all positive! I stayed the week of July 22- July 29.Upon our arrival at the airport in Cayo Largo it started off bad. No organization it was a disaster! Waited 3 hours to pass. There was a flight that was leaving as we arrived and I think that's what caused a 3 hour wait. Luckily the pros of this was that the hotel was just 5 mins from the airport. As well as on our return it was even worse we were rushed onto the plane after customs took 3 hours. No lineups, slow service, not enough staff at the airport, no organization!! Arriving at the hotel at 10:30pm they were kind enough to keep the buffet open for us to grab a bite to eat. The food was good throughout the week however there was not much variety. One day out of the week they had shrimps but the waiting time and lineup was ridiculous, not worth it! The drinks were amazing however they rarely had mojitos throughout the week (there was no mint)! The beach was nice but rough at times. Playa sirena is nice to go visit it is much more calm however we waited an hour for the shuttle. The pool water was very hot but the good side was that the water was salt water. The pool does need some maintenance. The animation team was great. Very friendly. They were very kind on accompanying those who wanted to go to the marina at night. Loved that on the day we left they came in the lobby to say bye to us all. They work very hard day and night! After talking to some people we heard that it is the first time they were open during this time of year. Usually they are only open during high season. I think they were not expecting it to be a busy time and therefore there was a lack of service and speed. They also mentioned there was an issue with the transport boat and that's why they were missing things such as the mint and food so they used that as an excuse.Thankfully for the nice weather and good company we made the best of our family vacation at Hotel Pelicano!

Peace and quiet

We had a great time on this beautiful island,the resort was old Cuban but they were working on renovations . The staff was fantastic ,friendly ,courteous and willing to help your every need . The food was typical Cuban fare but we had no problem finding something to eat . Our room was always clean and the air conditioner worked nonstop with no issues . The beach is why we went there and it didn't disappoint altho a bit wavey at times the water colour was beautiful and the sand was so white and so fine . The bars worked great all day , but at night the only bar open was understaffed and there was no air movement so it was hot . The store was well stocked and had lots of choice with great staff . The front desk staff had answers to all of our questions and was pleased to help . The weather was great but hot hot hot , with lots of bugs (mosquitoes ) in the evening so take bug spray . The shows were good but needed to speak a little more English we were kind of lost as what was happening . They seemed to cater more to the French . All in all we really enjoyed our stay with lots to do off resort ( and safe) the catamaran tour was the best ever , snorkelling and the islands we visited were awesome .If the price is right we will definitely return .
