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.

Stay March 3 to 17, 2017.

Rooms were nice except in 1231 had to let water run both shower/sink at least 5 minutes to get hot water. A recirculation pump in water system would help.Some women at front desk could learn a lesson in how to smile and courtesy.

Friendly and attentive staff

Location is right on the beach with a commercial mall across the street which is nice for manicures/pedicures/massages or that last minute tourist gift or additional suntan lotion you need as there is a convenience store there too. Rooms and food were good however the best part about this hotel is the staff. SO friendly and attentive! They are approachable, easy to talk too and remember what your order is etc! LOVE them. Shout out to Daniel Zamudio, Martin, Pedro, Aumberto, Caesar, Angel and Gerardo :)

Get away

We had a very relaxing time and the staff was very friendly and made our vacation a lot of fun! Food was very good but would like to see more restaurants so you had a choice. The cook in the morning that made the omlets was very good!! Karen, Angel, Samuel, Ceasar, Steve & bartenders were very nice!

Enjoyable Stay in Paradise

Our 1st visit to an all-inclusive beach resort, so it was quite amazing for that alone.Sure, it's not a 5 Star resort, but the staff gives you 5 Star treatment. They were all so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean/tidy. We stayed in 2 as they allowed us to switch for a better view. Did not experience excessive late noise during our 13-day stay. Very nice, slept great.It's quite the kid-friendly place. Kiddie pool and daycare. We have no children so no matter, but if you don't want to be around kids at the pool etc..... And the pool is the center of attraction all day. They have an amazing pool activity leader and staff. They keep everyone active who wants to be. Going around asking/telling you about volleyball, bocce, water aerobics. Music playing the whole time, very cool. The "infinity" pool goes up to the beach where you can see the waves and volleyball haha. Not all day, but I saw 4-5 staffers playing 4-5 guests just so they could get a game going. Nice.There is a pool level bar & grill. Just like the swank resorts. Drink-n-swim all you want. There are ~7 comfortable lounging beds, with privacy curtains, away from the pool facing the beach where you can stay all day (if you can reserve it in the morning). We would go lay on them after breakfast for awhile no problem. Later they are usually occupied most of the day.The buffet has enough variety that you won't grow tired of it. If you have all-inclusive privileges, there's a menu to order from for more choices. We developed a pattern of yogurt w/fruit for breakfast, and something from the buffet. Salad for lunch after something from the buffet. The salads were excellent!! Great variety of desserts too.But the most amazing part of all-inclusive is the nightly Reservation dinner. WOW.WOW. Amazing experience I tell you. They have ~5 themes repeated throughout the week. Italian, Brazilian, Mediterranean, Mexican and Asian. Absolutely fantastic.Ricardo, Samuel, Angel and the lovely hostess Karen make you feel very special.4 courses with several choices from each. We just loved it and went often. Ricardo made us his "special" Mexican/Italian coffees. They pack a punch so be careful ;)Last but not the very least of all is the 9th Floor :) Where memories are made.... or forgotten haha. Beautiful views, sunsets, music and the drink does flow. margaritas, tequila sunrises, long island ice tea, pina coladas. I'm amazed I remember them all.What happens on the 9th Floor.... goes immediately to Facebook ;)We went in February and the whales/dolphins were runnin'. 2 days in a row we sat on the 9th floor lounging on the couches, dozing in and out :) Then we started seeing some whale backs about 150 yards off the coast. I lay there watching for about 30 minutes. Something was different. We had gone on the whale boat tour and saw how they surface 2-3 times, blow their spout then dive. Well they kept surfacing in the same area not blowing the spout for deep diving. And then it happened. The most amazing moment of our vacation. A whale came flying up out of the water. WOW.Just as he landed 3 whale noses appeared simultaneously. They all 3 came up for a flop. But wait... they did this 4 times in a row. Awesome! Exactly the same each time.The next morning we were up there and saw a few jumps further off the coast. Then we never saw them that close again. Just a 3 day event they lingered near the coast.Almost forgot. There's nightly entertainment. The Aztec show was the best. Got to see that twice. It really is a mix. Mostly family oriented entertainment. They have a Star Wars themed dance group, Michael Jackson(well done), and a 50's style night.So overall we were impressed and enjoyed our trip immensely.

If You Don't Expect Much, You Won't Be Disappointed

We traded a 5 Star timeshare for this one and were very disappointed. The beds are very hard including the couches in the living room. There was no comfortable place in the one bedroom condo to sit. The room smelled musty. The curtains in the bedroom did not meet in the middle. I had to use a paper clip to get privacy because we were right next door to another resort. Children were allowed in the adult pool. The drinks were weak and small. People with all inclusive were treated better than those of us who were not. The staff was very friendly. Everything was very clean. If our expectations had been lower, we would not have been as disappointed.
