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!


Overview
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.

“Getting away before cold winter”

Hotel was fine our room was small and no fridge but i gotta say very clean an no smalls, we spent very few time there so it was good enough to just sleep. I guess November was a low season for Americans and Canadians cuz was full of Mexicans which make it really fun a lot of energy good vibes happy people love that!!!! Food was good if u are Mexican would love it, everyday different option jejej Staff very friendly and helpful the guys from the bar where amazing to us we had a great week PV Sky-bar just amazing!!!!!

Pleasantly Surprised

This was the first time I have stayed at Plaza Pelicanos. Four of us shared a unit in the Tower section of the resort. We had a 1 bedroom unit with two bathrooms and a small kitchen which was perfect our needs. I never do all inclusive in PV because of all the fantastic restaurants in the area. Some of the pluses include:-cleanliness of room, pool area-friendliness and helpfulness of staff, especially Silvia our housekeeper-views from the rooftop bar-central location within easy walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. Only a quick bus or cab ride to the Malecon and downtown. All in all we enjoyed a terrific week at Plaza Pelicanos and would return again

Not my favorite hotel

Arrived at this hotel after staying a week in a 5 star resort in the Marina area. The front desk was not welcoming and somewhat surly. We had a lovely studio room on the 4th floor. There was no elevator in our building. Climbing the flights of stairs in high heat and humidity was not fun. There was no wi/fi in the room so you had to go to the lobby to connect. We ate at the breakfast buffet one time. The omelet maker was excellent and the food selection was not appealing. One of the refrigerators for the fruit was leaking water, making for a dangerous trip around the area. Towels were thrown down, but it still looked cheap and hazardous. The pools were excellent and the food at the snack bar was excellent. We found the waiters/bartenders were pleasant and cheerful. If you come to this hotel I would request a room in the newer tower and have use of the elevator. I feel there are better options for hotels in Puerto Vallarta, so we will not return.

There's better, fresher options available in Puerto Vallarta

The check in experience was awful thanks to a rude and unpleasant receptionist. Despite requesting a room with an ocean view, we were put in a room directly beside, at ground level, the kiddies pool. I requested a different room and was begrudgingly given a room on the 2nd floor with a view of the local rubbish heap. Once the tour/sales staff realised we were not US or Canadian citizens & wouldn't be investing in timeshare we were dropped like hotcakes. We booked online through Booking.com but actually could have got a better deal as walk in customers. The food was generally ok, but the fish was a big disappointment. In such a place as Puerto Vallarta the fish should be exceptional and fresh. You can get better, juicier, fresher fish at the taco stand on the main road in front of the hotel.

Amazing Hotel

This hotel provides better service than 5* hotels that we have been to. I think that is because it is smaller size, more like a boutique hotel.We were here for my husbands 50th birthday and the resort manager Eladio Maturano made sure we were happy and well taken of. Thank you Eladio for the lovely birthday cake, decorations and wine in our room. Our room had a lovely balcony and a view of the pool and court yard. Palm trees blocked the ocean view but also the sun and that is fine with us. I used the bath robe and slippers every morning as I sipped coffee on the balcony. I am not one to have my towels changed every day and simply draped them over the shower curtain rod to dry them.The room was kept very clean, No towel art that I love. LOL The AC worked well and kept us cool.They do have an adults only infinity pool and the lovely daybed area is also a quite kid free area. I loved reading and napping in the shade (I am very fair skinned) of the daybed while my hubby cooked in the sun on his lounger. The waiters would come by and ask if we needed anything to eat or drink, great service at the pool areas. There is a family pool that they did activities at, looked like they were having fun. It would have been nice to see the activities crew do more laid back things like bingo, bocce ball and poker. They did do them but not very often..... sad.Breakfast is a buffet but they do have a cook station for eggs and bacon that was very good. We enjoyed all of the fresh fruit and yogurt each morning. Lunch is a buffet and they also set-up a grill in the court yard and grilled different meats each day along with salads, veggies and a starch or two. VERY GOOD! You can also get snacks (burgers, hot dogs, fries, nachos chips with all the fixings) all day at the pool bar. They have tables in the shade or sun for you to enjoy you snack. We ate a few dinners at the buffet and it was good. We ate most dinners at the a al carte. They had 3 or 4 theme menus and they were all very good. We picked something different each time. It was nice to most of the guests dressed up for dinner at the a al carte, makes for a better ambiance. Service was outstanding from all of the staff. The sky lounge has STUNNING views of the bay day and night. On the back side they have two big whirlpools. They have big comfy patio loungers and sofas along with tables and chairs, in the evening it is adults only and the bar is open. The bartender kept us happy topping up our drinks, did not even have to ask. Great appetizers that they brought out. I wish we could have ordered some to snack on with our AI plan, nothing big, maybe 3 spring rolls or something like that? They had Karaoke one night and a small band once as well. It would have been nice to see a bit more evening entertainment in the sky lounge.They did a show every night and they were good. More of a family style show that the kids enjoyed.The location of the hotel is very convent, you can walk to the malecon, marina (long walks) or take a bus. Walk the beach either direction. The Mega store is just down the street for anything you might need to buy.
