You get more bank for buck

The Hotel is more of a Mexican crowd oriented, there's is alot of local families (about 15% international tourists). The place is an excellent choice if you don't plan o staying there all day and view the place more like bed and breakfast. The pool was very crowded and at the end of the day kind of dirty since it has a swim-up bar. Drinks are ok amd food was acceptable, every day we had something different on the menu. Staff is very attentive and pleasant. Overall I would definitely recommend this Hotel if you think you fit in with the locals.

Bargain for your tours and other packages, acting hesitant does the trick, you should get at least a 50% discount over original price.

Acceptable but not exceptional

Overall, is oriented more to the all-inclusive family crowds. Restaurant/food options OK but not great; more about volume than quality. The more upscale restaurant alternates between Brazilian and Mexican, so you can choose only one on a given night. There's a grill/buffet at poolside (but they leave condiments out all day, ewww#, but is otherwise pretty good food. Else, the buffet/off-menu more-casual main dining room if that's more to your liking, but it's probably best at breakfast, less so for dinner. Not enough loungers at poolside, and no measures to prevent guests from basically "reserving" a lounger all day long by laying a towel on it. They did have cultural entertainment at night sometimes at poolside. Rooms are decent, and staff #especially bellhops) are very nice. Immediately adjacent beach area is a bit small, and the water a bit rougher than in other areas, but better beaches are nearby. Token-operated laundry machines are convenient, but hotel doesn't offer detergent..

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Mega, a good sized grocery/general store is very nearby on the main road, and smaller "convenience" stores are just outside the main entrance. Be wary of time-share hawkers though; they are incessant and EVERYWHERE, even at hotel as "concierge" and in stores/malls as "greeters."

Uncomfortable

There was very little beach and way too many children unsupervised in pools. The bed felt like we were sleeping on the box springs and they formed a king by putting the two twin box springs sideways. No ice machines working. Would not go again.

Jan '13 mom and daughter fun

I really enjoyed this hotel. We felt safe. It is close to the Mega Market, so convenient for shopping. Buses are close, so no need for taxis. I got a $20 massage down the street. The pool and activities were great. And the gym is included, with excellent equipment. We will definitely be back!

Best room ever

We have been going to Puerto Vallerta every Winter for over 15 years and this was the very best room ever. We have stayed at the Pelicanos Club Resort 3 time s before but never the Grand. The Grand is much, much nicer than the Club. As with most all of the resorts in PV, the staff was outstanding, food was great and Weather that can't be beat. The last six years we stayed at the Friendly Vallarta but this year the price at the Pelicanos was much better so we tried it and are glad we did. We have stayed at most of the all inclusive resorts over the years and now the Pelicanos Grand will be our first choice.

Be sure to take the bus to the Malicon and walk along the ocean side all the way to old PV. Take all of the tours you can, there is so much to see.

so-so vacation

Stayed here before and there were 3 sections to go and enjoy, now you allowed only one section which is too small with too many chidren in the pool. No beach; water comes right up to break wall. I knew this but it was made up with the use of 3 pools. No beer and wine all night as advertised; some nights only tacos as a snack and then some nights nothing at all. No constistancy. Also the last day we checked out at 11 am as we needed to and were allowed to sit by the pool until it was time to go to airport but allowed nothing without paying; and it was expensive, The 1st time at an all inclusive this happened to me.L

Family getaway

The location of the hotel and amenities are very good and the staff is really friendly. I had a good experience and I would go back to that location but not in all inclusive regime- the food and drinks were poor and I am not a picky person

The Local Resort

We don't know who is at fault for the first issue at Plaza Pelecanos, but after an 11 hour trip from home we got there to NO reservation! They wouldn't accept the conf# in our travel plan from Cheap Tickets even though all was in order with airlines & shuttles. The staff was unhelpful, never apologized & the manager "Jose" wouldn't do anything for us in 100F heat unless we paid for another regular night. They blammed Cheap Tickets. Locals overunning the place with 100's of kids & a general distain for Canadians or Americans. No A/C anywhere public, same buffet always, No "by order" restaurant, 1 small pool & disgusting tiny beach

Downtown PV is best shopping but the local vendors can make this "UN-Fun" with the constant bombardment. Go early! We went at 8:00 AM had peacful (best) breakfast on street Patio and shopped til 10:00 with no vendors to be seen!
