Honey Moon Trip

Well, overall, i had a great time out there! The only problem with this hotel would be the cleaning service. I lost $200 from my cabinet where i kept my clothes. I complained to the manager but never heard back from her again.

Very Nice Holiday!

A warm welcome by check in. Very nice garden and pool. Rooms need to be updated. Enjoyable peaceful pergola for meals with lot of space. Excellent friendly professional staff at the restaurant. Some activities around the pool but still peaceful to relax on the seashore. One improvement is to increase the amount of sunbeds around the pool to give everybody the chance to get one.

Guys trip

For the price you couldn't really ask for more. Friendly and helpful staff, my only complaint is wifi service. Very hard to connect from room and very slow at times.

Great Vacation

This is the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel - the second time this year. The hotel and the staff are great making for a stress free vacation. The staff go out of their way to make you have a great experience The food is OK always enough to satisfy hunger. If I had one complaint it would be the WIFI. I even paid for it and it was not great. I look forward to my vacation at this resort next year.

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.
