It was a good location to the beach. Hotel could have been a little more remodeled inside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Pelican is one of the best hotels we've ever been to. We go every year for our anniversary (5x now). Not only a beautiful hotel right on the beach but, the staff is incredible. From the front desk to the parking lot and everyone in between, the best. Already making plans for next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff. All you need, right on the beach. The pool is a nice addition to the beach when you get tired of the ocean. Nice bar and a resteurant with an ocean view.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent hotel, private beach, great staff!"
My wife and I stayed here for about a week. The hotel staff checked us in quickly and were very nice. The room (single king) was very large and very clean. It had a nice flat screen tv, a mini-fridge (that was thankfully empty), a desk, and a comfortable love seat (that also converted into a hide-a-bed). The bed was very comfortable, there were plenty […] of pillows as well as an extra blanket. We had the city view and it was great. The bath/shower was a little small (one person could be in it, though soaking in the tub might be a little uncomfortable), and the shower had a low water pressure. There were lots of towels as well. The hotel had a very nice brand of bath products (shower gel, body bar, lotion) that had a great smell and worked as well as the soaps that we brought. The bar/grill had great food (the Chorizo with Manchego was awesome!), as did the restaurant (We ended up splitting the Cuban Pork Shank and it was plenty for two). The Ice Cream shop was good (definitely recommend the Swiss Almond Chocolate and the Cappuccino Chocolate Chip!). Room Service had plenty of options and were quick to deliver. The beach was great. Don't bother bringing towels, chairs, or umbrellas-they are provided by the hotel. They also had free, fruit-infused water as well as people coming by every 30-45 minutes to take drink/food orders. There was a great porch with comfortable rocking chairs to sit and enjoy the ocean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, wonderful staff"
The hotel and staff were great, it was right on the beach with a pool and area to float on rafts which was good too. The food was excellent as well, and the wait staff was amazing. The only drawback is that it is a long distance to the water taxi, etc. but overall it was a great place to stay!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I love this hotel"
This Hotel has large rooms, clean and friendly staff. 20 feet from a beautiful beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very beautiful. Gorgeous views of beach and gorgeous city views. Older resort but very charming. No wild parties. A place to go and be pampered and relax. Great value for price. Took a trip in mid august 2013 for $113 a night. Resort fees and parking fees, but it is a resort. Fees are expected and theirs were not unreasonable. Helpful and friendly staff. […] Very cozy, clean, and bright. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We live in Ft. Lauderdale and decided to stay on the beach for a night as a mini staycation. The hotel is beautiful and one of the few that is right on the beach. Loved the lazy river (although I wish some kids parents would supervise better as they were playing tag while we were drifting). We had a beachfront suite which was amazing! We had dinner […] at the hotels restaurant which was nice. Kind of wish the menu was a bit bigger. But the food was good and again beautiful beachfront dining. Would absolutely stay again!

"Great location, Great Food!"
Husband and I spend a week here and overall loved it. Had a great room with a nice view. Ate several times at Ocean2000 and the food was always perfect. Pool and beach staff was always friendly and helpful in setting us up with towels and chairs. Hotel was very clean and neat. Only downfall was the construction ongoing due to damage from a past storm […] and a soap opera was being filmed in the lobby and on site for 2 days while there. We would definitely return though. Close to shopping and other fun things to do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel right on the beach"
The pelican hotel is right on the beach. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to help. If you are sick of the ocean, you can lay out next to the beautiful pool and lazy river. The set up is spectacular. The bus boys and lobby guys were so much help. Enrique the valet guy was so helpful. Definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review

"nice hotel, close to the beach, excellent staff"
We have very good experience with this hotel, every thing was good, we will be back next year and we will recomend to our friends and family Location was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
perfect for relaxing away from the crowds. photos should be updated. rooms are more modern than depicted. very nice resort. only negative which is also a positive was being located away from all the restaurants/shops. taxi service is prompt but gets expensive if you want to enjoy everything ft lauderdale has to offer. parking is expensive if you have […] a rental. but if your plans are to get away from it all and relax, this place is ideal. either way, you will spend money at or away from the resort.

"Hotel on the beach"
Wake up to sunrise on the ocean it's a beautiful. Thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall the hotel was very well positioned for the beach, great sea views etc.Having to pay $28 per night for a valet service was not foreseen and we felt that was somewhat excessive and may prevent us from coming back. The staff were fairly good although one lady on the front desk felt it was her right to scold us for our room key not working. The […] breakfast staff should learn about tea and how it is served. I had to to find a server three times in one breakfast looking for milk, salt and a fresh cup. Otherwise a good stay and glad you asked for our opinion. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a really great experience at the Pelican Grand. I went with my girlfriend for 5 days and I can not begin to describe all the great things about this place. It is very new. The rooms are sooo clean and the view from the balcony was incredible. The hotel staff was very polite and accommodating they even upgraded us to an ocean view room for free! […] The only thing that isn't so great is that it is a little far from things to do. We had to take a cab to get anywhere and they are a little expensive. It will cost you around 15-20 bucks to get to Las Olas blvd and it's only a few miles. But we did find this great place called Big Louie's which delivers really good pizza and sandwhiches. The pool is super clean as is the lazy river. Also, the beach front is immaculate. Seaweed washes up on the shore but there is a little vehicle that comes by every morning and cleans it up. I will definetly be returning to this resort whenever I visit Florida. Loved my stay here!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Best Hotel in Town"
It is such a beautiful hotel and it is very close to the beach! The pull out couch is not comfortable! The rooms are so beautiful and big! The prices are a little high! But it has great food!! The pool and Lazy river are amazing!! I recommend this hotel very much!! Stay Here Stay Here!!! You will love it very much!! I know i did!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel, big room, great location & beach."
The hotel is beautiful and the ocean front suite was very nice. It had a very separate sitting area with two couches (1 a single pullout bed). The refrigerator and microwave came in handy. The room was very quiet even though we were close to the elevator and ice machine. The staff was friendly and helpful. It may seem a bit picky, but the beach area […] was constantly out of towels and umbrellas. I mention this because you do pay a $15 daily resort fee that should cover these items, so they should have enough to accommodate all of the guests who want them. Also, the $28 daily parking fee was very steep and not mentioned prior to arrival, so be forewarned. The manager did work with us on the parking fee at checkout, which was very nice. We were inconvenienced one day by a Telemundo TV shoot that took over the hotel lobby and elevator. It would have been okay, but there was no warning and the TV crew acted like they owned the place and were not very nice to the paying guests. The water was crystal clear for snorkeling/scuba. Paddle boarding was fun in the inland waterways (mega yacht mania), The Kennedy Space Center and The Everglades are a couple hours away and worth the drive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Simply the Best Florida has to offer"
My girlfriend and I are local residents but decided that we wanted to end out summer taking advantage of the best thing Florida has got going for it - the beach. With all the years I have spent living in Florida I must say that this resort made me appreciate the beach more than I ever have. The rooms are large and decorated to make you feel like you […] are in a classical tropic paradise. The staff caters to your every need and makes sure that you are relaxed at all points of your stay. I cannot speak higher of a hotel. Even though I am a Floridian, I will be making sure to return to this resort whenever I need to get away from it all. 5 stars. If you are looking for the best of Florida, this is it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it was so beautiful there we never left the resort for the whole 24 hours we had dinner there we had drinks there we had breakfast there we went to the pool went to the beach everyone was very very niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice beach:) not littering foul mouthed drunks:("
We got to the hotel early and had to wait to be called to check in. They called at 1 pm and we went and checked in. Room was very nice and loved the separate sitting area. The water from the bathtub was a little dingy looking? Loved the private beach with private chairs! Nobody the whole time offered to help us at the beach or at the pool? The towel […] boy wasn't to friendly. The biggest issue I had was the staff not even our waitress were to friendly (the valet staff was very pleasant). The was one of the reasons I had picked this hotel was because all of the praise about the staff. None of them were even friendly acting. I would stay here again bc of the private beach. Sun Tower Hotel Suites is right next door it looks smaller but online it looks just as nice! I think I will check it out next time. Also there was some people staying there that was at the beach who were very intoxicated and didn't care to use foul language. I also thought it was rude bc they left empty beer boxes laying on the beach for the boys over the beach to clean up. I thought it was a nice place for families until I saw this bunch. Next time you see a 4 year old try to watch your language! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Beach Retreat"
We stayed at the Pelican in late July. Loved the mellow, "old Florida" atmosphere. Unfortunately, took a red eye flight in, so wanted to check in early. This was not possible. They had a number of folks sitting on the veranda waiting to check in for several hours. It's not their fault, but the desk staff were slower than necessary to get us in a room. […] Once we got in, had a fabulous time. View from our 9th floor room was beautiful! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Ocean-Front Resort"
My girlfriend and I traveled to Ft. Lauderdale for vacation the week of July 21, 2013 and settled on staying at the Pelican Grand due to its proximity to the beach and positive reviews online, not to mention the great deal we found on Expedia. We couldn't have been happier with our decision. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was well-appointed […] and clean (ours included a refrigerator and microwave, which were hidden in a bureau and we did not find until halfway through the trip), and the hotel grounds were very well-maintained. While the hotel does charge mandatory valet and private beach fees, we felt they were justified when taking into account the value we received through the base cost of the room. The valet service was surprisingly quick; much quicker than any other hotel valet service we've used. The beach was very clean and there was never a shortage of chairs, which hotel personnel would set up for you (although they would run out of beach towels periodically). The pool was also very clean. We utilized the bar service through the waitstaff that would come down to the beach, which, while pricey, was very convenient; the drinks were strong and the food was good. We really can't say enough about our stay - we'll definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Unexpected Pleasure... Truly Exceptional Value"
The hotel and rooms are truly excellent. An old time feel in a new, exceptional, well designed, clean and very comfortable hotel. Our master suite had four large windows overloading the atlantic ocean as well as a outdoor balcony. The king size bed super comfortable and the all-white bedding was heavenly. The hotel is located along a beautiful sandy […] beach about half a mile from the busier & noisier central area of Fort Lauderdale beach. Its a great location. The hotel has a wonderful pool and a 'lazy-river' type water park area for relaxing on inner-tubes in the water. Overall a great place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel with beach access"
The room was nice, not much for activities, or entertainment. Food was good quality but over priced.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pretty nice place. Room size generous, pool area not so much. Bar configuration makes little sense relative to beach orientation...too upscale. Beach waitstaff few and slow...big job but short staffed. Lots of gripes overheard ab nickle and dime charges, but read ab that on TripAdvisor prior to trip so saw it coming. Very clean, good upkeep. A big […] plus relative to nicer properties poorly maintained. Good but not great, overall. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Suprise yourself, and enjoy!"
The entire experience was wonderful. Talk about a nice hotel and service. Kick up your heels amd relax. We stayed in an oceam front suite and enjoyed every second. Ended up staying one extra night.. Do it for yourself, you deserve it. Food was ridiculous!!! Service was outstanding... I will definetly go again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a lovely time on vacation. The scenery was breathtaking. However, beach wait staff took forever to ask for drink and food orders,and even longer to return with your requests. Getting your bill around the pool and the beach was almost impossible. Remember to ask at least a half hour before you wish to leave. Can't imagine what it would be like during […] regular season since we went off-season. The a daily fee to valet (no choice) your car was ridiculus, especially as the week went on it took longer and longer to retrieve our car. I suggest that the hotel increase room rate and pretend the valet service is free. I found it hard to keep tipping the valet workers knowng I was paying to park my car. Valet also parked employee cars in the metered spots outside the hotel and sometimes around the drop off area. :-( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The service at this hotel was simply atrocious. I was on a business trip and had a critical business docume to fax. The front desk called me a "diva" for needing my dry cleaning done from a three week business trip and needing to send a contract. The property itself was the best in ft Lauderdale. Right on the beach with spectacular rooms. Staff need […] major major training ! They don't line up with the quality of the property. I was sorely disjointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel on the beach with added fees"
Where can I start? The hotel is one of only about five that are right on the beach. The hotel and the view is amazing. Our room had three huge bay windows overlooking the ocean. It made us feel that we were on a cruise. Everyday we had the choice to either sit by the pool or on the beach. The pool attendants were helpful and worked very hard to accommodate […] everyone with seats and umbrellas. We also really enjoyed the two restaurants the bar and sit down were very good. We enjoyed the pizza and burgers at the bar. The overall experience was good expect for all of the additional fees and the very very expensive pool side alcoholic drinks, $16 for a rum punch was way to much. A mix drink was $12 and beers were $7. The hotel also charges an extra $15 per day for internet and pool service i.e. towels, chairs and umbrellas. They stated this started the beginning of this year because of renovations from Sandy. Funny thing is we did not see any renovations happening. The other charge was $28 plus tax per day for parking. This hotel is so far away from everything that you need some sort of transportation. We had to rent a taxi everyday because the cost of renting a car plus parking was way too much. This really limited us from traveling around the area. I believe our next visit to the area we would stay at a different hotel because of such additional fees. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
