The Pelican Bay hotel is one of the best hotels ive ever stayed at. Upon arrival, you are greeted and promptly assigned to a room. We had a suite on the 4th floor overlooking the canal/harbor. Unsure exactly what we were getting we went into the room, where our jaws dropped. A king bed in its own bedroom, a large... More

I stayed here for a week with my parents. We had 2 suites next to each other. Our rooms were clean and big with a sitting area, nice King bed, balcony overlooking the canal and a full kitchenette with lots of coffee! The location was perfect for wandering Port Lucaya, Unexso, and a ferry to Taino beach (included). You could... More

We had the most relaxing and wonderful vacation here. Pelican Bay was beautiful. The rooms were the cleanest I've ever stayed in and decorated so nice. Comfortable bed and we sat on the balcony at night and enjoyed the ocean breeze. They gave us an upgrade when we arrived for free and we didn't even ask for it. Very friendly... More

Pelican Bay was everything we expected and more. Large, comfortable four-poster beds add a big of romance while the rest of our suite was furnished in dark woods and white cozy furniture. Free Nespresso coffee in room and fridge/microwave was a bonus. It looks like every room has a great view and a patio. Directly across the street is the... More

Pelican Bay is in a perfect location, within walking distance of almost everything, including shopping, entertainment, dining. The grounds are beautiful and the resort is built so that each room has a water view and a private balcony or patio. Rooms are spacious and clean; kitchen area provides refrigerator and coffee maker (coffee, creamer, sweetener provided). There are three reasons... More

The Pelican Bay resort is the perfect spot to stay on Grand Bahama. You have three pools, impeccable grounds, Sabor restaurant, and a water taxi to take you to Taino beach. The room we were in the first night was just ok, It needed a bit of updatingthe air conditioning unit needed to be replaced ,and lighting could of been... More

The good: Location is excellent. While not on a beach, the hotel provides free ferry trips every hour to Taino Beach. This beach is much more secluded (on some days almost deserted) and cleaner than the beach at Grand Lucaya. There is also a nice pathway behind the Pelican Bay that takes you directly to the market place within a... More

3 pools, great restaurant on site, beautiful, clean rooms, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. Awesome location just steps away from Lucaya Marketplace with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. Also a great open air stage. Across the street from the Grand Lucaya, which has an adjacent public beach. Better, though, is to take the free ferry to Taino Beach... More

3 pools Ms Burke at the front desk was extremely helpful. Free bottled water on arrival in room fridge. 3$ a day so no big deal. Great access to Lucayan Beach via Grand Lucayan lobby or Taino and Fortune Beach via Taino ferry which docks right on Pelican Bay property.

Stay here – and do NOT stay at the Grand Lucayan! Location: perfect; 5 min walk to the Marketplace (restaurants/ small shops); literally next to the Water Txi that takes you to Taino Beach (although there’s a beach within walking distance too). Service: Home from home. If you want to feel welcome and relaxed on your holiday, stay here. Rooms:... More
