The Pelican Bay hotel was absolutely perfect for us. We got exactly what we asked for and even though we were told we would have to wait about 30 minutes to check in, the concierge personally went and checked the room to make sure it was ready. We were able to go to it immediately. The view was perfect, our... More

Stayed at Pelican Bay in March 05 and enjoyed the most wonderful 5 days ever. It was our 35th anniversary and 35 years since we had been back to Bahamas. Couldn't have stayed at a more friendly and lush place. Ironincally the Sheraton accross the street was the Holiday Inn we stayed at those 35 years ago. Staff at Pelican... More

I went on vacation to freeport bahamas in november 2004 with three of my friends (I went on the trip with some resistance). We had such a great vacation that when it was time for us to return home we all tried to extend our trip. We all were on the telephone calling the airlines and planning our return trip... More

We stayed 7 nights at the pelican bay in July 2004. We have 2 children age 6 & 7. We booked the suite, which has a queen and a twin bed and one of my son slept on the convertible sofa. The room is equiped with a microwave and has a mini fridge. Our room was very quiet, and we... More

Staying at this hotel was a frustrating experience from the start. My husband and I had booked a Standard Room for $165/night and were excited about how the rooms looked online and the fact it was a "boutique hotel." What we didn't realize is the room pictured online is actually a "Deluxe Room," 2 steps above the Standard Room, and... More

My last visit to GBI was last May. We ( my two sisters, two girlfriends, and our mother) will be returning to GBI in June. We are looking forward to our return stay at the Pelican Bay. When we stayed there the last time, everyone was pleased with the Pelican Bay, it was great fun for everyone. Since everyone, except... More

First off I'd like to qualify that I'm a 21 year old fraternity member and loved the Pelican Bay. Yes, the Sheraton and Westin were absolutely crazy during spring break which was why the Pelican Bay was such a treasure! For my 5 dollar wristband I could go to the sheraton's beach, have a great time, then meander back to... More

My friend and I had planned our trip to the Bahamas for months. We were a little concerned that we might cross with the Spring Breakers, but generally we like that age group, so as long as they didn't knock us over in their attempt to party, we knew we would be fine. The Pelican Bay resort was a marvelous... More

This was the first time I travelled out of the country and alone, and I have to tell you that I was bit scared but after visiting the Pelican at our Lucaya and meeting Ms. Judy Douncombe I really felt at ease. Ms. Judy went above and beyond her job to make me feel welcome. Words just can't express how... More
