I ended up at Pelican Bay through a Groupon offered through Vacation Express. This place turned out to be perfect--friendly, helpful staff, nice rooms, a little porch where I could relax and look at the water, etc. The complimentary breakfast exceeded expectations; I thought it might be a typical American hotel offering (cereal, waffles, oatmeal, and yogurt), but they had...

4 Restaurants in just a short walk on the premises. Super friendly staff, easy check-in & check-out. Quick Taxi service!. 2 swimming pools on site. Free water taxi to Taino Beach Resort that leaves every hour & returns every hour until 10 p.m. Laundry room for visitors available. Very close to ALL the fun.

Talk about two sides to a coin! There's a lot to really like about Pelican Bay. Although the exterior of the property could use a little splash of color and a bit of landscaping, the interior of the suites is really nice. The suites are clean, spacious and offer fantastic views of the beach. The pool areas are lovely and... More

We really enjoyed staying here. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the island. The best location of all the resorts. And people staying at the hotel get free passes to ride the passenger ferry to taino beach.

My sister and I stayed at Pelican Bay for 5 nights. Our suite included a bedroom, living room, a balcony, and kitchenette. The beds were really comfy and we had a great view of the port from our window. Overall the service was great, though the speed at which one was helped at the front desk varied quite a bit... More

We love Freeport and the friendly people who live there. They're so nice that we'd never lock ourselves in an all inclusive resort. Pelican Bay is nice hotel on Port Lucaya. This isn't Nassau, but we don't want Nassau. It's too busy. This isn't Marsh Harbor, but we don't want Marsh Harbor. It's not busy enough. Both have their place... More

Rooms were beautiful. Very clean and spacious. A/C was a powerhouse in the August heat (so much so we felt cold walking in). Had a great room overlooking the bay and the pool. In terms of perks, we couldn't have been happier. We got a set of free comp drinks at the hotel bar. A card each for pool/beach towels... More

I just got back from a great time at Pelican Bay. I booked this through Groupon and I wasn't sure what we would get. The staff was very friendly and we got our room as soon as I checked in at noon. We got two rooms. They were awesome one bedroom with a king sized bed and then a large... More

We just went to Pelican Bay for my brother's wedding. We spent 3 nights and our overall impression of the property is good. The room we were in was spacious and clean as well as the bathroom. It came with a balcony with a view of the marina and the hotel pool. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room... More
