"Fantastic Stay ... Will come back!"
My wife and I spent one night at the Pelican. What a wonderful experience! We will certainly do it again and allow more time. Everything was perfect including a very friendly and helpful staff and front desk. Special thanks to Crisanne at the Front desk. She deserves 5 stars on her own! :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always a great experience--will return again"
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was great having both a refrigerator and microwave in our room. The amenities and location can't be beat! We enjoyed spending the day on the beach in comfortable chairs with an umbrella and utilizing the bar and lunch service. The Fitness Center was […] very clean and the equipment was in good condition. The staff is very personable and helpful. It is obvious that the staff is very satisfied with their roles/responsibilities, as they are always smiling and helpful. We look forward to returning to the Pelican Grand Beach Resort on our next vacation! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful oceanfront resort"
This was our second time at the Pelican . Love the beach location and the wonderful veranda with rocking chairs to sit and enjoy the gorgeous setting. Pool area is not huge but the lazy river is great fun for all. Water is always heated! Classy lobby with overstuffed chairs in quiet corners. Activities for children and teens seem to be limited but the […] natural beauty of area is outstanding. We love the fact this hotel is away from the Beach Walk people cruising area but close enough to visit if you want to. Convenient to everything-Galleria, by-the-Sea, port area and 17th st., Las Olas etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Post Cruise stay in Ft Lauderdale"
We spent 3 days post cruise in Ft Lauderdale at the Grand Pelican. The best part is the wonderful rear veranda that over looks the beach and ocean. The restaurant also serves excellent food, and the service was top notch. There really are no other restaurants in the vicinity. If you want to eat elsewhere, the best plan is a 40 minute walk to Galleria […] Mall, and they have a variety of suitable chain restaurants. The room was large are comfortable. We were in Room 923. No only complaint is that there were absolutely no dresser drawers for clothes. We stacked clothes onto a table and into the night stand. We asked for more hangers to hang clothes in the closet and never received any. The TV was modern. Bathroom towels and shower very good. Noisy fan in the bathroom. There are extra fees beyond the Expedia charge and we knew that in advance. Check your statement upon checkout, as I did. I was charged for parking for 3 nights, but did not have a car. The charge for over $50 was reversed, but should not have happened in the first place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wedding party stay"
I reserved three adjacent ocean front rooms in August through Expedia. I personally called the hotel to make sure of the reservations and was told that everything was okay. I called again two days before arrival to confirm that the rooms would be adjacent. I was assured that there was no problem. However, upon arrival we were assigned rooms on three […] different floors. This was not acceptable to us and we told the desk clerk of our previous reservations. He finally put us all in three rooms on the same floor, but not together. One of the rooms was different from the other two in accomodations, it was ocean view, not ocean front. So much for reservations. I feel that the hotel should have reimbursed us for the one room that was different from what we reserved. All three of the rooms were supposed to be identical and adjacent.

"Love this hotel!"
The hotel is located right on the beach so the view from our ocean-front suite was so beautiful. At our request, the staff brought up an extra chair so the 3 of us could sit on the balcony. All of the staff was very friendly and accommodating, and are happy to help you get a chair on the beach & put up a beach umbrella for you. What could be better […] than sitting in a rocking chair on the front veranda to read,chat, or watch the ocean? They even have rocking chairs on each floor so you can also watch the sunset in the west! I loved that we could sit on the front veranda on cushioned sofas and have anything from the bar or restaurant served to us there. One night we thought of going into town for dinner, but decided that what could be better than having a gourmet level dinner at the hotel outside right next to the beach? Every meal we had was delicious. Our suite was very roomy and the beds were wonderful. The hotel is not within walking distance of the city, but that was fine, since everything we wanted was at the hotel. I can't wait to go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the staff is was very helpful. The suite was beautiful with a great ocean view.Only wish the mattress was firmer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect spot on the beach, love the ocean views!"
Love the accommodations, the staff was exceedingly welcoming. Enrique was our favorite amongst the staff, he made us feel at home right away! He always had a smile and we enjoyed talking with him. All of the restaurants were top notch. We had dinner at the bar, and also lunch and dinner at the restaurant, perfect every time... and our guests agreed! […] And even the room service was great too.

"Great place to stay. Wonderful & happy employees"
Beach was small as a result of hurricane Sandy. Table lamp is in a very precarious place causing me to hit my head on it several times while going to sit at the desk with my laptop.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Average hotel right on the beach."
A nice but not great hotel. Expected a bit more based upon the hotel rating. The hotel needs some updating. Lacking in maintenance. Not a bad place to stay but nothing exceptional. The location was the best part. Right on the beach with an acceptable pool and lazy river.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean, spacious rooms. Friendly, accommodating staff. Gorgeous beach. No reason NOT to go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"recent stay---city view room"
the city view room has no draw space fro your clothes--I was told by the front desk that only the water view rooms have draw space. also there is a 28.00 a day charge for parking, in addition there is a 15.00 a day charge for using beach and pool---I would think that should be included in the room cost. other than these comments the hotel and staff […] do make the for a pleasurable vacation.

"Nice staff and facility, watch the extras"
The Pelican Grand has an older crowd. The beach location is nice, but there is not much of it. Erosion has made the beach very narrow at high tide. The rooms are great, the staff is friendly. The food and drink are way over priced. Their trendy "12" drink menu keeps you from ordering a Marguerita that isn't top shelf. The $28 a day valet charge was […] a surprise. No other overnight parking is allowed within a 30 minute walk. The room had a fridge which is great for sorting out cheaper breakfast and drinks. The staff is wonderful. It made the high cost more bearable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel on the "Beach""
Tremendous hotel with unbelievable views of the Ocean and Fort Lauderdale. Truly 5*++ Great room with fabulous ocean vie.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotl with a private beach and pool. Din"
We hand a good time at the Pelican. Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfeast was not up to our expectations and was expensive. The rooms were nice, comfrortable and clean. Hotel rates overpriced for what it is but we had a good time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Porch dining is second to none in views. Food inconsistent. Service inconsistent. Rooms and hallways need maintenance and repairs. Beach front near pool has massive erosion- fallen trees, exposed pipes, electrical wires exposed, etc. otherwise a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay on the beach"
My wife and I stayed at Pelican Grand for part of our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All staff were very courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean every day and they went out of their way to help us with a few odd requests. Will be coming back in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"relax after cruise"
we stayed overnight after our cruise not to rush right home.. what a great stay we had relaxing by the pool, then an amazing dinner. View from balcony of the beach was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel - We Should have stayed longer!"
The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a beautiful hotel, inside and out. The room was gorgeous. The staff was wonderful. We loved the lazy river and the fact that it was right on the beach. The restaurant was terrific. All we can do is rave and look forward to our next visit. You will not be disappointed!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel right on the beach!"
Stayed in an Oceanfront King Suite. Our room was beautiful and you couldn't ask for a better view. The customer service was outstanding. The bartender was fantastic - friendly, great drinks - overall great guy. Beach service was wonderful - Leroy was so nice. Pool service was great - fresh chair & beach towels as soon as you come out. And the server […] handling food and drinks at the pool was so nice also. The food was a bit over-priced and not all that great. We got a pizza that was burnt, sent it back and the second one came out not much better. No worries, the bartender made up for it. Tried twice to get into the restaurant but couldn't. First was Sunday brunch. $47 for brunch?? We don't eat or drink enough to justify that kind of money! And second was for dinner but since we didn't have reservations, there was too long of a wait. No food is worth an hour wait, sorry. Also, ordered the fried calamari from the bar area. Horrible! They were chewy. Yuck! Overall we had a fantastic stay at the Pelican Grand and hope to visit again in the future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Southern feel hotel- very comfortable"
Overall experience was great- the one thing I was not very happy was that there is no dresser in the room- we had a wedding to attend and it was very difficult to get dress out of a suitcase. Hotel should advertise that there is no dresser in the room, only closet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than the Pictures"
My husband and I arrived early from a cruise and we were offered what they had available, which was a queen double ocean instead of our king city, which was so appreciated, instead of being told to wait until our room was ready. We were unpacked and in the ocean, which was steps from the hotel, in nothing flat. We also enjoyed the Sunday brunch, my […] complements to the pasta chef. The pool and lazy river is a nice change to the ocean and there were plenty of chairs. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. They had a nice shop for coffee, bagels, soda, chips etc. It served ice cream sundaes (large enough to share). Our only suggestion was better lighting on the tables on the veranda at diner. We would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel.....Beware of parking fee!"
We stayed 4 nights and the place was awesome. Room was clean ,bed was super comfortable and being right on the beach was magnificent. The ONLY drawback was the parking. The only on-site parking was valet only!! Which we found out when we arrived was $28 per day!! Street parking is virtually non-existent and where there is some, it's metered. It needs […] to be disclosed prominently on their website about parking. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay. Very relaxing ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, but too many EXTRAS"
We had a lovely stay, hotel was beautiful and clean. Staff was nice. However, my husband and I were looking to get a way for a couple of days, have some nice dinners but not spend a fortune. Everyone does everything for you here, they don't even offer free coffee and you have to pay for your JELLY! What??? Seriously, we paid for our jelly...you have […] to tip every person who gets you a towel, a drink, parks your car multiple times per day (mandatory Valet parking). Ridiculous amount of tips...They should AT LEAST offer free coffee... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view, too much money"
This hotel was overpriced, 28.00 per day for parking, resort fees. Great location, too much money.Genuine Expedia guest review
We live in Ft Lauderdale and go there often for a quick get away. Rooms are great and the staff is very friendly. Very close to everything that you could want for a South Florida get-away!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Our family had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Very clean, modern. Staff was great, very polite and helpful. We would have stayed longer if we could, but really look forward to returning one day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"rude and crude"
rude and inconsiderate staff - many, many hidden fees and charges - what was advertised is not what was delivered - we will never return - this is not a four star hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location/ mall not far away"
We enjoyed our stay very much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing and beautiful place!"
The hotel was AMAZING!! My only complaint is that the breakfast that is normally included with the room is NOT included with the Expedia deal. I'd booked this trip months ago and had forgotten the breakfast was not included, and we were told several times the room included a continental breakfast. We enjoyed the breakfast, but later found out that […] the breakfast is NOT included in the Expedia deal. So, we were unexpectedly charged $50 for the four continental breakfasts that were "included" with our room. Now, whether or not the Pelican Grand or Expedia want to include the breakfast with the room deals or not is fine, but I would suggest the front desk clerks remind the guests upon check in that breakfast is not included in this deal. I would have been just fine with that and we would have not spend $50 on breakfast. Other than that, I would love to visit the Pelican Grand again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Weekend Get Away"
We live locally but wanted a weekend get away. Great place for the price. Staff super friendly. Food is good - BRUNCH is AMAZING. Food, bar and parking a bit pricey but worth it. Room was comfortable - some furniture a bit worn but overall nice. The pool and beach access is perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful Resort location"
Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Staff was friendly and helpful, accommodations were beautiful and spacious.

"Great locals getaway."
We love this hotel! very comfortable and homey feeling. Majority of the staff was friendly. However, the cleaning staff is so loud in the morning that it seemed like they were in our room. They woke us up at 730am both Saturday and Sunday mornings yelling back and forth at each other in the hallway and there was still hair on the vent of the blow dryer. […] The gentleman setting up beach chairs and umbrella's was awesome! I was in the ocean at 830am and this guy never stopped running and helping other guests get set up! nice job! For being in Ft. Lauderdale the food wasn't as good as I'd hoped but that won't stop us from returning. Brunch was fantastic!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed for my birthday weekend, we had such a great time. Our view was beautiful, and service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice atmosphere"
Very accommodating , the only drawback is that we didn't know we would have to pay $28.00 a day for parking. Also, housekeeping didn't come until late in the day and we didn't have enough washcloths. The last day, we didn't have any.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on the beach"
Great hotel on the beach. Room was clean, comfortable bed and with the extra room made an overall fantastic week. Only negative is the $15.00/day resort fee which is fine if it wasn't for the fact that there is also a $28.00/day parking fee. Actually the parking cost more than the car rental.Genuine Expedia guest review
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
beautiful decor ,nice beach and very peaceful ,but very expensive ,our room service for breakfast for a all american breakfast an omelette two oranges juice and one coffee for $51.00 , we wanted to stay one extra night and it went up form $162.00 that we paid to $384.00.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!
