A hotel of modest style, the Pelicano Inn is a good starting point for exploring the region. During the day culture, sports and nature reign. In the evening, go to the beach, which is nearby. At night, the feast continues with nightlife in Playa del Carmen.
This hotel review is a translation from the French version published on our French site Easyvoyage.com.
The hotel is situated 33 feet off the beach and in the centre of Playa del Carmen. Cancun airport, which is 32 miles away, can be reached within 45 minutes by car.
The Pelicano Inn hotel is a small and unpretentious facility. It is located about 33 feet from the beach of Playa del Carmen, which runs along the town centre. It is a good stopover point between two visits to Mayan sites, diving in Palancar or even between two sleepless nights spent in this large trendy seaside village.
Built in 1995, the Pelicano Inn hotel includes 39 rooms. The building in a U shape rises on 2 floors. The small inner courtyard is planted with big tropical trees and decorated with terraced tropical plantation supported by small walls in creamy colours. The green and the red, the nation's colours, dress all.
With its white roughcast wall and tiled floor, the rooms are simple, large and clean. They open onto a small terrace overlooking the sea or the courtyard. They are equipped with a fan and a paid safe. The bathrooms have a shower. There is no television, nor a mini-bar and telephone for international dialling is available at the reception. The room service is available until midnight.
Ronny's restaurant prepares a meagre breakfast buffet from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. The local cuisine is of average quality. It is not part of the Pelicano Inn. It is a dining area negotiated under a trade agreement. The Ronny's is located on the beach, which lies at the foot of the hotel. Its dining room is open to the outside offering a view of the sea. It also serves a la carte in the afternoon and in the evening. A menu cost 110 pesos. Otherwise, the town centre abounds in restaurants of all kinds and any category.
The public beach of Playa del Carmen extends 33 ft from the hotel. It borders the town centre. Terraces and hammocks of cafés, restaurants, bars and small hotels line up all along. It is therefore very lively. The sand is fine and the waters of the shoreline are pristine clear turning off to a gradient of blue turquoise. The beach is guarded. The hotel does not have its own beach equipment.
