We have stayed at many hotels before near the beach but this one is one of the prettiest! Perfect!Genuine Hotels.com 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
Stayed in ocean front suite on eighth floor. Had great view of beach and ocean, watched the sun rise every morning of our stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome hotel, on the beach."
Very clean. Staff very professional and friendly.Genuine 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
"Great hotel right on the beach!!"
My husband and I stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every minute!! Our suite was gorgeous and the view from the balcony fabulous!! The pool was very nice and the beach was breath taking. All the staff were so pleasant and professional. We cannot wait to come back next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly and courteous staff"
We had a great stay recently at the hotel. This is the 2nd year in a row that we stayed there over the 4th of July Holiday, and it was great again. The staff is very friendly and helpful and we had alot of fun with the Sand Castle building and the coconut races! We will definitely be back again soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had the room on the second floor on top of the restaurant and hotel staff would coming in and out from a back door with access to our balcony. lack of privacy and professionalism.Genuine Expedia guest review
"loved hotel and location"
the hotel was beautiful and the beach and pools were great, couldn't ask for a more accommadating hotel and staff, my husband and i loved everything about it and would and will probably go back there again. next time will probably rent car, we did spend a lot in taxis everyday, but then the $28 daily fee for car there is crazy too. .Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved Loved Loved our stay at the Pelican Grand. The location and amenities couldn't have been better. All staff members were helpful and courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel and close to the beach."
It was a great location and easy access to many places.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No equivalence in Fort Lauderdale..."
Very good hotel, big rooms, breathtaking ocean view and... food and beverage service both at the private beach and the pool. The sole place we always stay in when we are traveling in the Fort Lauderdale area. A good value where we are going to stop by once again, for sure!Genuine Expedia guest review
We are going to return with my family again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, great views, great location"
Beautiful!! Awesome family place and couples retreat. Beach service and pool service is spectacular! We enjoyed the views, the staff, and the hotel. We decided not to rent a car because of the parking fees and we were glad we didn't as we just walked the beach to various places. One mile each way had fun little places and shopping. 2.5 miles ($9 taxi […] ride) was an amazing area (near the pier). Only hotel downfall is the drink/food costs. We ended up just walking to get food and loved the walking views so all was great! After seeing all of the other hotels in the area, we were so happy with our choice!! Well definitely stay again!! :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place, on the beach, no free parking!"
Nice place overall. However, watch out. They charge $28.00 per day for parking on top of other typical hotel fees. After a 6 night stay with no other room charges, our checkout total was $245.00! There is no other parking available. The parking should have been included in the price of the room. In fact, the price of parking the car was more than the […] rental charge - Geez. Although I like this hotel, I'll look elsewhere next time where I don't pay for parking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel right on the beach."
This hotel is located two miles north of the action in Fort Lauderdale. Which to me was a good thing. The hotel is well equipped and the staff was very helpful when needed. The rooms were very large and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great ocean access and view."
Our ocean side balcony was excellent. Beach chairs and umbrella were worth the resort fee. Food and drink expensive but good quality. I could cut my steak with my fork it was so tender.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Really Nice hotel with access to the Beach"
The Pelican Grand Resort is a very nice Hotel with access to the Beach. Perfect for kids! It has a lazy river and a pool. Also the hotel provides beach toys, swim boards and a little inflatable boat for free. My 5 years old had a wonderful time!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Wonderful stay!"
Exceptional service and friendly staff. My husband and I had a great time. We had an oceanview king room with a pool view as well. Everything was awesome. We would love to do it again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous spot on the beach, north of main action"
The resort has wonderful views, a relaxing pool and lazy river. Restaurant is expensive. It is located a few miles north of the main hotel area on Fort Lauderdale's beaches, which necessitates taking a taxi, or the bus, two routes of which pass by on Ocean Avenue, to get to the beach attractions or downtown. The ice cream shop is a nice treat. One day […] of our stay Telemundo was filming a Latin soap opera in the lobby and deck areas which was cool to see. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Spectacular views and the service is always excellent!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel....I've been there 6 times now"
Excellent as usual.............but had a raft and $50 worth of sunscreen stolen off our pool chairs while we were using the lazy river!Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were excellent. Rooms were nice and clean. Loved having cocktails put on the rocking chairs in the moonlight. Restaurant was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good food and good experience with transportation options thru the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
A little bit upset about the check in process since our stay was an owners rental so they took forever to give us a room but other than that it was beyong amazing... the room service, the food, the pool, everything was awesome!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice boutique hotel directly on beach, lazy river."
Nice Victorian feel hotel with an amazing veranda directly overlooking the beach and ocean. Best for adults only but good enough for families with kids too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Expensive - Hidden Fees"
It was a beautiful hotel, right on the ocean and the food was very good, but when we checked in, we were hit with unexpected fees. Parking cost an additional $27/day and it was valet only. Every time we wanted to go out, it was an additional $5.00 tip. We were also it with an additional $15/day recreational charge for pool towels and longue chairs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean Front Paradise"
This is an excellent and relaxing place to stay. We loved that they catered to everyone of your needs. Every time you go to the pool or beach there is a guy waiting there to set you up with a chair, umbrella, and towels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better for Families than Romantic Anniversaries"
This hotel is in a nice location if you want to be just a tiny bit out of the thick of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. We booked this hotel for our anniversary and felt a bit bombarded by the amount of kids here. If you are looking for a family hotel it's great. It was interesting to see that the entry to all the rooms was actually in an open air set up, like […] a motel, and the challenge with that is the tile floors and corridors make the area just outside your door a bit loud at times. The beds, bedding, and shower supplies were all very nice. It was a very nice place overall! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Full Service Resort"

"We will definatly return!"
This was our family's second stay at this resort and we will definatly book this resort next time we visit Ft. Lauderdale. We love the service provided by the staff and for us the beach is the main attraction! We are floridians, so we know beaches. I recommend this resort if you are looking for a relaxing family/ couple getaway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Arrived at 340 pm was told check in time was not until 400 pm . I waited to 405 pm and no one ever notified me that my room was available .first time at this hotel would not return . 28.00 parking fee with a resort fee charged at check out. Check out time 1100 am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great spot right on the sand !"
This is by far the best Beachside resort in Ft Lauderdale. Great views and great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is the second time we have stayed at The Pelican Grand Resort. It is lovely in every way. The rooms are large and have all the amenities. The staff is so accommodating. The pool area is excellent especially the lazy river. It's a perfect place for grandparents to entertain their grandchildren which we did. We will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best destination in 15 years of marriage!"
The staff was extremely responsive & considerate, catering perfectly to the purpose of our stay. (15th wedding anniversary) The desk manager Andrew was very personable; he even sent complimentary chocolate covered strawberries to our room upon arrival. Enrique from guest relations helped with our bags & gave us a free glass of wine or appetizer credit. […] Jacqueline provided exceptional table service, as Jason took photographs for us at dinner. The Ocean 2000 food director Bob Pallay treated us to dining excellence Oceanside, with complimentary frozen drinks. The beautiful view is unmatched thus far. Overall my wife & I enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful experience, although the daily valet parking can get somewhat prohibitive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful relaxing old-style vacation hotel"
This hotel puts the idea of leisure back into the vacation. Lovely verandah with rocking chairs to watch the surf, spacious rooms, gracious lobby..

"Amazing grate and classy Hotel just on the Beach"
The hotel is located in a very nice place, easy to reach, just in front the beach.

"Beautiful location, excellent staff!"
We spent 5 days at the Pelican Grand for our anniversary. It was great! The hotel is right on the beach - and there were plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas to go around. The wait staff on and off the beach were courteous and attentive. It was heavenly to sit on the veranda overlooking the beach and sip our coffee each morning! The room was spacious […] and clean, private balcony overlooking the ocean was an added bonus. The food and drinks were a bit pricey but we expected that - the food was really good (especially the Caesar salad!). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very clean, very comfortable - the restaurant food was excellent but costly - I plan on going back to this place again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family hotel on the beach."
This is a great hotel if you like walking out of your hotel room right out to the sand/beach. The pool is excellent and the pool staff always have a smile on and always ready to help. It is a bit far from night life if that is what you're into, it will require a car to get around which will cost you $28 whole dollars per day for valet parking plus tips […] of course.
