... krill like many whales do. The interesting thing is that a whale is a mammal, but these are actually very large fish. A whale shark is a very old and a very docile creature. They have no apparent fear of humans and actually seem curious about us. They have been reported to grow up to 60 feet (a mere 15 feet longer than GatoGo), although the two we were swimming with were in the 12-15 foot range ...

... easier than sneaking across the US border. Juan laughed and said it was about the same. With the gates of the toll booths in our rear view mirrors, we sheepishly rode south. With each passing minute we breathed easier thinking “we are getting away with it”. It is a big deal for us because the free road starts on the other side of town, is about twice as high, has much more traffic because it is free and has very little shoulder. Besides, 1D is more scenic. ...
We learned to bleed the hard way.
We were just having too much fun. The water temp was around eighty degrees, although the daytime highs were closer to 100. Our days were spent exploring coves littered with shells and soft sand made of finely ground and polished coral. We snorkled amazing crystal waters filled with brightly colored tropical fish with glowing neon accents. We would dive down into schools of dinner plate sized King Angel fish ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Los Pelicanos Hotel Rosarito
Our visit was okay. I couldnt believe they did that to us...
I had gone to the hotel a whole month before to make the reservations only to find out that when we got there they tried telling us that we called them to cancel the reservations and that our room was given to someone else. I was heated I drove all the way form El Cajon, Ca with my family and luggages to be told nope sorry. I even had called a week before we got there to confirm and they said everything was great. Eventually they noticed I wasn't going to leave (knowing there were no rooms at all availabe in Rosarito that weekend) they gave us a room with one bed in it.
So the four of us took it since they said they wood bring an extra bed in. well, to make things worst they didn't bring any bed so half of us slept on the floor with no extra blankets. They simply continued to accuse me of canceling my own reservation. I even mentioned that I offered to put a deposit for the room but I guess they don't take deposits. Putting that aside everything else was okay. I tried making a complaint withthe manager but everytime I called he wasn't there or out of the building. Well so that's that. I probobly will try it out again. The rates are reasonable compared to other hotels and it is on the beach... You decide.
Los Pelicanos is not the newest hotel, the decore available isn't the newest either. However there are several reasons, which out weigh the drawbacks, for staying at Los Pelicanos. Firstly, prices are reasonable. Secondly, the hotel was clean, not always a given in Mexico. Thirdly, parking is situated inside the hotel its self, thus there is a local and secure parking location available. Fourthly, the hotel is situated on the beach, ground floor rooms make it possible to walk directly onto the beach from room, second floor rooms and up make it possible to see the beach directly from the room. Lastly, the hotel is situated relatively close to the clubs and resturants. It's more likely that an individual would take a taxi rather than walk, but the option is available. All the above points make this a 4 out of 5 star hotel for me. Frankly all that's missing are the amneties of a 5 star hotel, ie decore and room service.
A great place to stay
When we head to Mexico we stay at Los Pelicanos. The hotel is situated perfectly on the beach. You can either lay low or head out to the local nightlife. The food is excellent. The rooms are large and comfortable. Spend the extra dough for the ocean view.
We loved it here, price is right, and food is great!!!
We stayed at Los Pelicanos, and really enjoyed ourselves, good food, prices are right on, and it's cozy, you can just walk up the street to the main drag, and watch them making fresh tortillas, you can walk to the shops and buy stuff, and you can take a walk on the beach, and buy food, buy clothes, buy jewlery, ride an atc, ride a horse, or fly a kite... Where else can you do all of this on the beach? No where...that's where. It was a lot of fun, and I would highly recommened it to any one wishing to pay a good price, stay on the beach, and have a good restaurant on the same premises...
We absoluetly will go back...but, will get the room with a view.. next time... Jesse & Christina/2003
Want to view your property
This is a wonderful little cozy place to stay. The staff is wonderful and although it is a bit old it is well taken care of. The rooms give you a feeling of being in a cabin somewhere in the caribbean and the ocean view is breathtaking. Make reservations ahead of time.
On the negative side: I wish they had pictures to view on line of the hotel. It is hard to recommend to people when they don't have a visual of the place, room, restaurants, and ocean views. Please consider adding photos of your hotel on this website.
Beautiful view of the ocean
we stayed in a great room that overlooked the ocean, with a cactus garden down below the balcony. we went in september and the weather was beautiful. the food and staff at the restraunt/bar were great. i would definitely stay here again.
What a bargain
I stayed here twice in the year 2003, and both times were great. The first time we didnt have a view but the second time we did and it was awsome. I recomend you reserve your beach view room 2-weeks in advance. I like it so much Im returning in feb,2004. Theres also a restaraunt that has good food at great prices and a beach view.(nice & quite place to relax)
Nice little place
Stayed here on Fri/Sat nights in August of 2003. Having not actually stayed at a hotel in Rosarito before, I was kind of worried about the place.
To my surprise, it was pretty nice. Right on the beach and in a decent area within walking distance to the shopping and clubs, etc. We had one of the back rooms but I would highly reccommend booking one of the front ones with an ocean view. The back ones don't have views of anything.
The place was clean. Don't expect luxury but the room definitely wasn't run down. Had an old traditional look to it.
For the price, it's hard to beat this place. Especially considering it's proximity to the beach and the fact that it is far away from the hustle and bustle of the party area hotels.
GREAT!!! Highly recommend
I have to admit, we were a bit weary since their pricing was so much more lower than the other hotels we researched on the internet but once we got there, wow! Very clean place and hospitable people and right on the beach. We like the rustic look of the place. The only drawbacks we found were it gets a bit noisy and the heat. There are no fans or A/C in the rooms and we happened to get a room without the ocean view or breeze.If you like a place away from the ruckus of the "spring break" mentallity but still within walking distance of all that hubbub or if you like a nice place for you and your family, I highly recommend this place.
A Great Place To Stay
Los Pelicanos is a great place to stay. Right on the Beach. Beautiful views and restaurant overlooking the ocean. Rooms are large and have nice bathrooms. Love the showers! Sliding glass doors out to the patio and balcony. Views of the Ocean is just Grand! We have gone there many times, the people are so friendly. We are going again in June. Can't wait! Their prices are very reasonable, and they are close to town. Easy walking distance. I'm sure if you go there you will love it too!
