This was an interesting place to stay for a night. The reception area is rather traditional, the staff really friendly. The design of the hotel accommodation is 'rather colonial'. Our room was on the ground floor near to the bay. As it was July 4th we watched the firework display over the bay. We had a welcome cocktail at the... More

Stayed here in March. Loved the small Resort. Rooms need a little update but on the flip side of the coin didn't pay 5 star prices either. Sabor Restaurant was excellent. Staff was wonderful and location was perfect. Totally enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I had made reservations to celebrate our 2nd anniversary at the Pelican Bay at Lucaya. I picked Pelican Bay because it is advertised as a 4-star hotel. When we arrived, we were surprised to say the least. The place was dated and unclean. The refrigerator in our room was from the 70's and was visually unappealing (rust/bubbled... More

I recently lodged at Pelican Bay Hotel and had a great time. I came to Freeport to dive with Unexso which is located right next door to the hotel. The hotel is perfectly situated with views and access to the marina. Also, the hotel is in perfect distance from the Port Lucayan Marketplace where you can find a ton of... More

This is a big hotel complex set by the sea. There is no beach but a free boat service to a nearby one. The hotel has lots of nice swimming pools and hot tubs. It's right next to a dolphin centre where you can swim with the creatures. There are many market style shops on your doorstep selling a good... More

We had a very low key wedding there. Just 10 people, no family just friends. The Bones Bar was our Evening Reception after an Amazing Dinner at the Seafood restaurant next door. We had a complimentary upgrade as we were getting married and everyone was very helpful. You will be very happy here. Great Shops and Restaurants in Port Lucaya... More

The suites at Pelican Bay are very nice. The pool area is also very relaxing. What I like best about this resort is the location. You can walk to numerous bars, restaurants and shops. The restaurant Sabor is excellent. If you are a beach lover you have to take a shuttle to another resorts beach but once you arrive it... More

Located right next to Port Lucaya with many restaurants and shops and across the street from the Grand Lucayan, this hotel is a great value. It has three pools, a very nice restaurant - Sabor, and a very good salad bar luncheon in the Canal house (4th floor) Monday through Friday. I had a "stateroom which was essentially a suite... More

We booked a bonefishing trip, and were defacto booked here. Arrived a little early, driver set bags down outside main lobby, where there were bellboy stands ready to roll. Checked in smoothly enough, found our suite room available but basically had to schlep our own bags to the suite. They gave directions, but the room was tricky to find, lots... More
