We traveled the week of March break (March 11-18). This was our second trip to this hotel and our 3rd to this island. Despite our delayed arrival, the hotel made checking in easy and quick. We did noticed some improvements made to the resort which made our stay that much more enjoyable. The great staff continues to impress with great...

Just love Cuba! Great people, great weather and lots of sun and fun! Pelicano was terrific! We stayed in room 4925 which I would highly recommend as it had an ocean view, a living room area, large master bedroom and an outside sitting area by the front door. Rooms: don't forget the 2CUP's per day for the safe, water is...

We stayed here In March 2017 and had a great vacation. I was travelling with my wife and two kids (10 & 12). The beach near the hotel is amazing! The room we had was a little disappointing. Our bed was not the most comfortable and the kids had a twin bed and a cot...need I say more. The one...

We all know that 5 stars doesn't exist in Cuba. But this is a good place to go. Since the change to "Grand Caribe" group of hotels, the food got better, the staff is great. There's still issues with having hot water for a shower but you make the best of it! The beach is beautiful(back to what it was...

It's been four years ago today that I first went to Cayo Largo. This year I stayed at the Hotel Pelicano in January. You come to Cayo Largo to relax and enjoy the beaches but I have to say the food was good for Cuban standards too. It was the first time I have enjoyed the beef in Cuba and...

My husband and I, along with another couple, returned home yesterday after spending an amazing week at the Hotel Pelicano and the beautiful island of Cayo Largo. It was our second time at the Pelicano and it won't be our last. Yes, the structure is getting older but it does not deter from the experience in any way. It is...

If you are picky, snobby or a 5 star person, do not go here. If you are easy going, make safe food choices, love the beach, and good service, consider this a budget friendly option that you will enjoy. Getting there: We flew with Cubana Air, and you get a meal on the plane. Old plane, not the cleanest, and...

Our family has been to this resort many times and were anxious to see the difference the switch to Gran Caribe would make. We visited the Pelicano for two weeks at Christmas and were not surprised when most aspects of the travel experience had not changed much with the new ownership. Rooms, food, and property were very much the same....
