Our Opinion

The Plaza Pelicanos has a true Mexican feel to it. It's beautiful and recently renovated. The rooms are very simple; be sure to ask for an alarm clock at the front desk! The grounds are well kept. The pool is huge, with a swim-up bar, but the service there isn't so great. The restaurants have excellent service however, and amazing food. This hotel has virtually NO beach. There are no activities either. This hotel is more for R&R, and quiet clients looking for a basic, simple place to stay. The tower at this hotel is all timeshares, so watch out for timeshare reps!

Recently renovated to add facilities, the 4-storey Plaza Pelicanos is well-located on Playa Las Glorias, just north of Old Puerto Vallarta. The distinctly Mexican roof tiles and fa�ade of the entrance set the tone for its laid-back, fun-loving, seaside style. The Grand section is located beachfront and the spacious rooms have ocean, garden or pool views.

Location: On the Hotel Strip located on the hotel zone in Puerto Vallarta. Approximately 10 minutes from the airport.

This was our first time in Puerto Vallarta and it was a great experience. The staff at the hotel ( Mario, Fernando, Victor and many other ls that I can't remember their names) were fantastic, very helpful and polite. The activities were so much fun and the ladies at the spa were fabulous. I'll go back again for another birthday celebration

First visit to Mexico

This was my 24 year old daughter and my first trip to Mexico. We weren't sure what to expect but the resort had positive online reviews. Hands down the best service and staff out of anywhere i have ever stayed. 99% of the staff were so polite, courteous and fun that we found ourselves enjoying their company while they ensured wr had the best trup ever. Never once did we feel at risk and we were brought into the groups of pool volleyball and other activities despite that we were one of the few that didn't speak Spanish. Front desk staff could use a little more pep as they come across rude sometimes. But EVERYONE else....AMAZING. would go back and recommend to everyone heading that way. Special thanks to Febrezio and Estaban

We chose this hotel based off of location and price. For all inclusive and being on a budget this was our best option. We stayed 8 days and 7 nights and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The second we arrived we were greeted promptly with cold towels and drinks and were taken straight to our room. When we got there and saw we were given 2 double beds instead of the king we requested they quickly moved us to a proper room. The food is so so most of the time but for the price, you can't expect much. The omelette station every morning was our go to. The drinks were always strong and the service was impeccable. Never did our glasses become empty before a new one was brought to us. The bar pool, roof top bar and buffet service were all on it. The maids were really good too. We'd always come back to an immaculate room after our days out. The one and only complaint I have is that the vendors walking on the beach are relentless. Doesn't matter if you're hanging out by or in the pool trying to relax, they will continue to harass you to buy their junk. Got real tiring real quick but it's Mexico so it's expected. We loved the staff, the property, the location. Was so easy to exchange our American money for pesos at the front desk and a lot to do that was walking distance. Even did the couples massages for an insanely cheap price. All in all, we through my enjoyed our stay and did my want to leave.

Great Experience

My husband and I spent a week at this resort for our honeymoon. Our experience was GREAT. Some of the staff is ok while certain staff members made this experience OUTSTANDING. Nancy from the front desk area made us feel at home, she took care of us when we wanted to reserve spots for tours. She was extremely friendly. While Lucio, our favorite bellboy, catered to our needs. He made sure to answer all our questions about any needs while our stay at the resort. Mario, the bartender from the sky lounge, was by far an exceptional staff member, while we enjoyed drinks he always provided OUTSTANDING customer service. His drinks are well prepared and he always conducted himself in a professional manner. Lastly, my husband and I look forward to returning to any of the hotels/resorts where Raul Robles (Capitan) manages. Raul provided top service and made our stay at the resort comfortable and memorable. Due to these individuals we plan on recommending and returning. Plus, the resort is a great location with great amenities. Thank you for a Great Honeymoon experience! Special thanks to Raul Robles, Bartender Mario, Front Desk Assistant Nancy & Bell Boy Lucio!

Amazing resort and even better staff!

I had an amazing time at this resort. Although the resort itself was incredibly impressive and well kept, the staff there were without a doubt the number one reason I enjoyed my stay here. As soon as we arrived, Gustavo, one of the bell boys, was smiling, greeted us like old friends and was always interested to hear about our day whenever we would return to the resort or appear in the lobby. Ricardo and Karen, staff at the A La Carte restaurent, were extremely hard working and made every guest feel like royalty (highly recommend A La Carte if you do visit). Mario and Fernando, who were part of the games team, were always very full of energy and eager for everyone to be included in the activities they were promoting. Although many people visit the buffet throughout the day, Daniel always made you feel like a top priority whenever you walked in and was eager to help you in anyway that he could. Despite all these incredible staff members, above all, is Fabriccio the bartender. Talking to Fabriccio always put a smile on my face as he was the kindest, friendliest and most entertaining staff member I met during my time at Plaza Pelicanos Grand. Fabriccio actively engages you in conversation and speaks incredible english. He was beyond doubt one of the most memorable aspects of my time at this resort. Despite being a bartender, Fabriccio's attitude and personality embodied everything I would expect an overall fantastic customer service employee to be. These staff worked incredibly hard, were always very genuinely friendly and deserve to be recognized for their amazing efforts.
