I think the Peliconos is the old plaza las glorias. Canto used to be the Continental Canto del Sol years ago
But that new hotel is definitely north of the Canto and Pelicanos. You can't miss the vivid color of the building and it's height.

Do a search for "recovermyfiles" You can download the software and run it without purchasing it. If it's able to read the card and the pictures you can then purchase the software and restore all the data. I have used this software a few times. Once on my parent's computer after a complete crash and ...

We would have no problems staying there again. We didn't stay there to eat, so basically we had our breakfasts there each day. It was average food-wise, nothing spectacular on the buffet any of the nights. But always something to eat. The staff is awesome, the rooms are a good size and clean. A/C wo...

The snow was our "welcome home". Flew into Vancouver and it was snowing, got back to the island the next morning to about a foot of snow :shock: We are looking to head back around the 23rd or 27th of February right now. We were pleasantly surprised by the beach as well, we were kind of used to what ...

Nov. 24th to Dec. 1 Hola Hotel

We had an excellent time once again. We were kind of worried about the hotel, but took the Trip Advisor website grumblings with a grain of salt. Is the Hola a 4 star, no. But it definitely isn't a bad hotel either. We'd have no problem staying there again, especially for the discount rate we got it ...

The buffet restaurant is "open air" style at the Canto. It's kind of a palapa style building attached to the main hotel, kind of resembles the outside bar in appearance. They also have a snack bar out by the pool close to the ocean. Breakfasts are served in the buffet restaurant or on the patio by t...
