    Near the beach and the 5fh av. easy to take the ferry to Cozumel and the bus station for the airport, Cancún and Xel-ha.

    Air conditioned out of order, only fan worked. the room was clean but the hot time in summer without air conditioned was impossible to sleep well, because the room did not have air circulation. It was projected to be used with air conditioned. The money exchange was favorable for them and the staff innefitient because since the first day we asked for the problem everydays, and did not steps.

    Its close to the beach, the balcony was enormous! The staff was very friendly.

    The beds were horrible and impossible to sleep in!! I even got a bruice on my hip from the bedsprings! And the music from the nearby restaurant was terrible!!!! It sounded like they were playing inside the room!

    - All rooms have a great ocean view. - The All Inclusive system can save you a lot of money if you mostly eat at the hotel. I was never hungry and always had a drink on me :) - The restaurants are ok. - The beach "in" the hotel (the hotel is literally on the beach, a few steps and you're on the sand, a few more and you're on the water) is awesome. Water is crystal clear and very calm (very safe for kids), plus they have some entertainers that invite people for yoga, pilates and volleyball games at the sea.

    - No free internet of any sort; you have to pay for it. - At the bars, sometimes I felt like cheap liquor was used (since on 'all inclusive' systems you drink as much as you'd like) but I didn't care much. Drinks were still good. - Cleaning was not very good at the room: anything left at a not directly visible spot (say, at the top of a 2m drawer) was not cleaned. - One day we were the last ones to leave the beach. It was already night. When we got back to our beach chair someone had taken one of our hotel towels. So even though we were robbed inside the hotel we had to pay 15 USD for it.

    Having been to Playa several times before, we chose Pelicano Inn primarily for its excellent location and value. We had an ocean front room with an outstanding view. This hotel is not luxury by any means, but it is adequate in all important respects. We had read reviews prior to selecting it, so we were prepared for night-time noise (from a neighboring hotel) and uncomfortable beds. Both turned out to be true. Despite those drawbacks, we would definitely stay again because the location is perfect and the value for the money exceptional. We have stayed in much higher-end hotels in Playa but we will return to the Pelicano Inn.

    The beds need to be updated. The night-time noise is annoying but that is no fault of the Pelicano as it comes from Fusion Hotel to the south.

    a bit sparse but very clean , beach-side, and great at the price for our short stay.

    staff did not speak much English

    Came back here after 12 years. Pelicano Inn is a beautifully rustic holdout in an area quickly becoming slick and gaudy. Courtyard garden is beautiful and quiet. Location on the water and in the middle of pedestrian zone can't be beat. Exceptionally good price. Friendly, English-speaking staff. Free wi-fi worked great for me. Except that Playa has lost its small-village charm, I would go back to Pelicano. It's not luxurious, but has more beauty and warmth than what I would call 'bare bones'.

    I wish the rooms still had hammocks, the hooks are still in place and the mattresses are really bad. Used to put free quart of bottled water in every room. Noise from Fusion bar nearby ruins the ability to listen to the surf at night (though that apparently does not affect the 'garden view' rooms as much as 'ocean front'). Concierge recommended garish Vegas-style show, and when I said that was exactly NOT what I was looking for, instead of suggesting low-key locals-style activities he said 'oh you gotta go'.

    good value for money, friendly staff, clean, beach-side, nice food at reasonable price, 5 minutes from coach station... a fantastic find!

    the only downside, if any, the entrance from the street is not that clear, and that is all...

    Hello, the attention of the staff is good, but the treatment of the owners and manager is very bad, they care payment, no customer comfort, the mattresses are very hard, the days we stayed the weather was cool and morning there was no warm water, we were charged for three but got towels for two, no phone available at the reception, I travel overseas, so I had no cell service, was an employee who lent me his cell phone. This hotel was a very bad experience.
