I returned to Los Pelicanos after a rather long break because of the U. S. media emphasis on the dangers of Mexican travel. I encountered ZERO problems. I was again blown away, as usual, by the incredibly beautiful, romantic, RUSTIC authentic Mexican setting. They have added spa services, and my girlfriend and i purchased full body, 50-minute massages that were wonderfully relaxing, and only $40.00 each! Great pool and large, simply rooms with Mexican floor tiles and open showers (no bath tubs, room phones, etc.).
As usual the restaurant offered delicious, mouth-watering steaks and seafood, and the prices were lower than my previous visits, due no doubt to the bad press and the dollar/peso valuation. If you come to Los Pelicans, insist on an Ocean View room, (call ahead to reserve this on weekends, Sunday - Thursday they are plentiful. Omar is the Manager, speaks great English!). Our very large, spacious and "Spartanly" furnished room was only $60.00 per night (weekday) $72.00 for weekend. This is a BASIC, no frills hotel, although there is a beautiful pool and restaurant and minimal spa. Do not come expecting U.S. amenities, but the relaxation factor is off the chart!
The incredible value is the SETTING, literally RIGHT ON the beach. i always hesitate writing about the hotel because I do not want you all to come there and crowd up the place!! : ) I love that during the week days it is even more slow-paced and romantic. Be sure to drink the blended Margaritas and get the fruit plate in the AM and the fresh-squeezed OJ. So MANY fine, simple pleasures here at GREAT prices!! Be prepared for a SIMPLE relaxing stay on the beach. I just got back tonight (Monday) and i am returning this weekend! I highly recommend this place, if you have concerns, just GO FOR IT!!
