We had a great time here. Pool, beach and service is great. It’s all we needed. Ya it’s a little older and we heard some people had shower issues, but that didn’t ruin our trip. We had a double superior room and it was right by the pool which was great for hanging out. The food is mediocre but we still ate it. The service is amazing by the pool. Always friendly staff, quick and accurate. If you’re looking for fancy things, this probably isn’t the place for you. But if you like a nice pool, great service and a functional room then this place serves.
A couple tips, make sure you get the all inclusive, and at the buffet dinner ask for a menu to get some nice options.
We stayed in room 115 and it was great
Also the wifi was fine. We didn’t have to use data once.

This resort deserves more then a 3.5 star rating.
My family and I stayed here for a week and were thoroughly impressed with every detail of our stay. The facility was clean and had people constantly attending to their customers needs at all hours of the day in a very efficient manor. The staff was friendly and considerate. They remembered names and always said hello and made an effort to always make the kids feel important.
The rooms were kept in great order and the cleaners were always smiling and helpful if you need anything. The pools were clean and service at the bar was quick and done with a smile.
The best part for me was the activities included with our stay. Eric and Raul were so fun and entertaining with everything we did. From water arobics to kayaking, they both put their all into making it fun and making sure everyone was included. They are both Gems and worth hanging out with.
Aside from the al-le-carte dinners, there is also a wonderful coffee bar, open early for a latte at no extra cost.
It is a small resort, but has huge pools and ocean from amenities. I enjoyed the fact that it wasn't over crowded and we never had to wait in line for anything. (besides blender drinks) We also thoroughly enjoyed the open pizza oven by the pool where you can get a personal pizza at your order, made fresh in the pizza oven. Great resort for families with children.
Always remember to tip your service as they heavily rely on our few dollars to make a better life for their families. :)

I was traveling with a friend, we were both very impressed with the warm welcome we received and the overall professionalism of the resort staff, they always went out of their way to help out and please us.

The room was nice, beds and pillows were comfortable and the sheets were a pure white, crispy clean cotton. We had hot water and pressure everyday in the shower.

The quaint little cafe was a great place to hang out for a late night herbal tea or coffee and pastries in the morning.

The food at the buffet was good and offered a wide variety of fresh tasty food, fruits and vegetables. Some nights the food was served outside by the pool with a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, the location is very central, with a pharmacy at the corner of the street and 10 minutes walk to La Isla mall. We were also a block away from the bus stop for a 70 cents ride Cad to the Malecon.

Spacial thanks to Javier and Anhibal and all the staff for their excellent service!

We enjoyed our stay at this resort of 200 people, just the right size to meet people from all over. Soon as we showed up we were greeted with smiles and eager to help in any way, We showed up early to the resort so the rooms were not ready yet so we stored our luggage in a safe locked area while we checked it,Once with wrist bands on we ventured the area and pool.Rooms are very clean upstairs rooms have no balcony and the window opens a little for safety reasons.Staff are very friendly and are will to help you in any way especially in the Buffet area like Anibal, Jorge just to mention a few but they are all good right as far as the cooks and all Bar tenders with smiley faces trying to mix drinks for everyone.
You may find that the Buffet has the same dishes almost every day but they try to change it up.
Also there is an additional pool area and snacks which leads to the beach only a short distance from the entrance hotel. I met so many friendly people here from all over. So if you are the type of person that like to socialize this is the place.
Planning going next year. 7 days is not long enough.
Take care everyone and enjoy the heat.

Just spent 8 days at this resort. We really enjoyed the staff just as most of the other reviews stated they are top notch. We found the resort to be spotless our room very clean (basic hotel room). We really enjoyed some of the entertainment and participated in the Super Bowl Party which was a hit I think even with the staff. There was a lady in the cafe who made amazing cappuccinos. Food was good and every day there was a little something different offered but also alot of the same things too. We could walk easily to shopping and other restaurants. The Beach Club part of the resort was a quick 2 minute walk down a very nice little path. A taxi to downtown or the Marina was between 50 and 85 pesos. My only suggestion for the resort would be to let people keep their bracelets and towels. We checked out of our room at 11 and where told by the desk person that she had to take our towels and that we must return by noon to have our bracelets cut off even though we did not have to go to the airport until 3. It leaves a little bit of a sour taste when you are trying to enjoy your last few hours of sun and sand. Honestly how much can 2 people eat and drink in the extra 3 hours of their last day. Despite that we would stay there again in a heartbeat as we like the smaller resorts.

The staff is great and there to serve you. Rooms were clean - Get a room on 1st floor with a balcony to outside without additional charges - The pool side rooms are more money. Do not buy your excursions from the hotel. They told us not to buy from outside the hotel because you can't trust anyone else but we always do without any issues. One of our tours to San Sebestion cost us $900 pesos and the hotel was going to charge $1700 Pesos. The only down side is after staying for 2 weeks when you check out you are totally cut off from any more food/drink - We did not have to leave for 4 hours and could not get a plate of fries without paying. Suggest you leave your bags there and hit a Taco stand outside the hotel.

I just wanted to share what a wonderful time my girlfriend and I had at the Pelicanos Club beach resort. We were originally supposed to stay at the Pelicanos Grand, but it was still closed due to renovations. We were disappointed at first, but the Pelicanos club beach resort made up for our disappointment. Our room was on the ground floor with direct access to the pool. The pool staff was very attentive making sure we always had something to drink or eat at pool side. The room wasn't luxurious, but it was very clean when we first arrived and the maid always cleaned it meticulously.
The food was outstanding! They only had one restaurant open which was normally their buffet restaurant. Due to Covid 19 they didn't have any buffets so everything was a la carte. We were never disappointed with any of our meals. They all were very good and beautifully presented. The wait staff in the restaurant was always very attentive. You could tell they really appreciated that we were there and the excellent service confirmed that. The desserts were super, especially the chocolate cake. If it was on the menu, we always ordered the chocolate cake.
We spent a lot of time at the pool and the resort had a wonderful activities staff. They had water activities and different contests everyday. A lot of time at night they had black jack tournaments. Raul, Fernando, and Marco were a lot of fun and always made sure we were included in activities if we wanted to be. My hats off to them.
We had a wonderful vacation! What really made our week special were the wonderful employees of the resort. They ALL were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. We look forward to returning!

Upon arrival we were given a room with 2 twin beds. We reserved a room with king bed.
3 floors in this resort. No elevators. Bars at the pools close at 7:30. Tequila bar opens at 9:00. Drinking guests need to keep moving locations to enjoy cocktails. The front entry to the resort is the most common smoking area, so all who enter or exit must walk through the smokers cloud. The 2 restaurants we were expecting, ( 1sushi restaurant and 1 Italian restaurant) were actually the same restaurant that just changes the menu on different days. Reservations for the restaurant were needed 2 to 3 days in advance, and since our stay was only 3 days we couldn’t eat at the restaurant. Forced to do the buffet line everyday. We will not be returning.

I would have given it 4 stars had we had a bottom floor with a patio as there are no balconies on the other floors which makes drying out your clothes difficult. Great resort if you want something smaller where it's easy to track down your family members. The buffet has enough options to keep you happy and if not you could always go to other side for pizza, hamburgers etc. Definitely no complaints about the staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful whether it was a maintenance person replacing a light in our room or the grounds keeper watering the banana trees. A special thank you to Marilou at the kids club for always being excited to see my daughter and doing so many crafts with her. Apparenlty you are better than ice cream :). And thanks to Claudio for the great service and keeping my teenager entertained.

Monica Y asked a question Jul 2023
Winnipeg, Canada
Are there designated areas for smoking?
Answer from Ali JB
Waterloo, Canada
Yes, 1 area and its outside. When you are at the checkin desk look to your right. There is a meeting area with doors that open to the designated smoking area.
Answer from KS2678
Surrey, Canada
The main pool bars close at 8 but the club in the back serves until midnight. Restaurant needs reservations, but it’s not hard to get one.
Answer from Noe M
I did not have the chance to see the rooms closest to the beach but from outside they did look in a better shape, price might be a bit higher but probably worth it for the the view. Make sure to have a print out or pic of what your final price was, when you check in make sure to check that the price matches, they try to charge me taxes again at check in.
