Pelican Grand Beach Resort Review

Smack on Fort Lauderdale beach, this yellow spired, Key West–style property maintains its heritage of Old Florida seaside charm with rooms adorned in florals, pastels, and wicker; an old-fashioned emporium; and a small circulating lazy-river pool that allows kids to float 'round and 'round. More than 3/4 of the guest rooms are spacious, one-bedroom oceanfront suites, each with a partitioned living room area. All oceanfront suites have balconies, except those on the second floor. The 500 feet of beach flush with the Pelican is considered private, allowing the resort to offer full-service beachside food and drink. The serene "Grand Veranda" spans the entire length of the property, with plenty of rocking chairs for gazing at the ocean and enjoying peace and quiet.

    Pelican Grand Beach Resort Review

    This is a beautiful, gracious, modern hotel, with direct access to the beach. The old world beachside porch and dining is fabulous, and the staff could not have been nicer (while dealing with a power failure). Decent value for money too. I would go back to this one...
