    Beach life

    Nice, updated room with smooth tile flooring at oceanfront was pleasant but the mattress needs replacing for a good night’s sleep though.Attentive and polite staff all around. Perfect location for long walks on the beach and ideal spot for sun worshippers.

    Wedding Bliss!

    Our family spent two nights at the Pelican Grand for a loved one’s wedding. The wedding was held at the resort, so we decided to stay there for convenience. We had no idea we were in for a treat! The property is beautifully maintained and sits right on the beach. The staff is pleasant, efficient and overall excellent. We can’t thank the valet team enough for the care they took not only with our vehicles, but with our many belongings. We dined offsite, with the exception of the wedding meal which was delicious. But, we did grab coffee and muffins daily from The Emporium Ice Cream Parlor. Best banana nut muffins in Florida! Our rooms were the Seaside Suite Two Queens. Incredibly spacious with two tvs: one in the bedroom and the other in the sitting area. The separate sitting area was perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze if you didn’t want to sit on the balcony. Speaking of the balcony…watching the sun rise over the ocean each morning was perfect peace. This resort can’t be beat!

    Best resort i’ve ever been to!

    The ocean view is amazing, the suite is Amazing, they have a lazy river and a pool, there is really nice room service and staff, and there is a very peaceful outdoor area that connects right to the beach and I could go on and on and on and it would take me the rest of the day to explain everything. The only bad part is that you get hooked and get really sad when you have to go.

    Lovey location on the beach!

    The Pelican Grande is right on the beach and the rooms are spacious. Choose a room with a balcony facing the ocean. The food at Ocean 2000 and at the O2K Bar and Lounge is excellent. Breakfast on the covered veranda porch is relaxing with a lovely ocean view. The gift shop offers gelato. The biscoff cream gelato was a great flavor. Valet parking is efficient and prompt. The pool and lazy river are in the shade and it was too cool to use them while we were there. There is a lot of wind noise in the open hallways and noise from other rooms carries across the hall. The Sandbar grill at the Sun Towers next door is a good place to walk for lunch.
