We love staying at The Real resorts and enjoying the food of Pelicanos. My favorite is the grouper. We love Lucas, who is always attentive and so sweet.

Terrific menu for a lunch break. Conveniently located next to the beach and pool. Try the Washington Corn Cream soup.

Ordered the Mexican style fish and it was excellent. The cheesecake dessert was excellent as well. Don't think you could order a bad meal here.

Pelicanos was a nicely situated restaurant, open air with the sea nearby and a pleasant atmosphere. Very enjoyable with great fast service. The food, however, seemed pre-cooked and not always very tasty, a difference from the Royal hotel's other restaurants.

What a fantastic place to view the ocean for breakfast and lunch. The waiters are unbelievably professional and quick. Lucas, Marlin, Manuel, Carron, cant name them all, but all fantastic.

The food has been amazing during our stay at The Royal in Playa del Carmen, and Pelicanos is our favorite. The service is excellent, the food is beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. How wonderful travel such a fantastic meal with an open air view of the turquoise water of the Caribbean.
