My husband and I arrived to the hotel early...very early (around 8 am) for a much later check in as our cruise ship had already docked. We went ahead and went to the hotel and they kept our bags, and our cell phone number so they could call when a room was ready (Viva Las Vegas). The room was FUN, FUN, FUN. There was no view from this room, but we it didn't matter, there was plenty to see from the cafe. We had coffee at the Pelican Cafe (waited on by a lovely lady named Lillian). We then went and walked on the beach (which is conveniently right across the street) and did some sight seeing. We were called about 11:45 am that our room was ready and when we arrived back at the hotel, our bags were already in the room with a bottle of water, and a promise of free drinks from 4 - 6 pm (not just a drink, but drinks). We went to the beach (the free beach chairs were amazing from the Boucher Brothers - thickly padded and with a nice terry cover that stayed on). We had drinks and appetizers at the Cafe (the aquamarina seafood appetizer was great - served again by Lillian) when we returned from the beach (a fabulous place to people watch). We were so close to everything...restaurants, shopping, the beach! We couldn't have asked for anyting better. The only change I would make is to put a shelf in the shower...had to put shampoo and soap on the floor, but no complaints, just a small thing. Had breakfast/coffee each morning at the cafe and drinks each afternoon. Julio was so accommodating and friendly (as was everyone we encountered at the Pelican). I would go back to the Pelican for a get away again and again!
