Unmarried guests under the age of 25 must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult.

Due to the increase in guests during the Independence Day holiday period, increased security measures will be enforced at this property.

All guests during the peak summer period (July 1-7) will be required to wear wristbands. The names of everyone registered in a unit will be verified to ensure that the maximum number of guests per unit is not exceeded, and that children or young adults (those under 25 years old) registered in the unit will have adequate supervision. The required ratio is one adult, parent, or legal guardian over 25 for every two children. Guests arriving at the property with disproportionate ratios will be denied access. The adult/child ratio is strictly enforced, and a no visitors policy is strictly enforced.

Children under 14 years old are not allowed in the swimming pool without adult supervision.

Optional extras

Breakfast costs between USD 5.00 and USD 15 for adults, and USD 5 and USD 15 for children (approximately)

Pelican Beach Resort & Conference Center, Destin
Awesome stay, good price, will come again!
Our stay was amazing. Our room was super nice, well stocked, and an awesome view. We will definitely come here again. It was a holiday weekend, and it was still not overwhelmingly crowded with people. We are able to access the elevators (19th floor) with no problem, the pools, and the beach. We chose to go after 5pm, so the umbrellas and chairs (4 rows deep) did not bother us, but might to some people. The only thing missing from our room was a pizza cutter! Super close to everything we wanted to do in Destin, and the kids loved it.

OK for The Value
It was pretty good for the value, but it lacks the luxury i was expecting. Employees are good.

Too expensive for the value
For the price this was not that great of a deal. shows check in at 4 but the property says it's 4-6. It also showed beach umbrellas as an amenity without telling you that you have to rent them. I reserved a king and a queen bed but got twin beds instead of the queen. We did not have hot water in the shower one evening. There was also a wire that should have been nailed to the floor that came lose and my husband stepped on the nail. No huge issues but again for the price I would expect more.

Very Good8.0
In case you have never been to Destin, it is PARADISE. The water is emerald green, the dolphins, pelicans, and hermit crabs are plentiful. There is hardly ever waves, yet on my stay, we had unusually GREAT ones. Donut Hole Cafe had the BEST donuts (yes, better than crispy creme) The ONLY negative is that the people who rent costly beach chairs and umbrellas try to bully you into sitting away from the water and behind their customers. This was the case at Pelican Beach Resort and all the way down the coast. Florida law says that the coastline is not private property. So, get up early and set yourself up by the water. If they threaten to call the police, let them. You are within your rights to be there!
