This past weekend I had the opportunity to stay at a 2-bedroom villa (2100 sq ft) in the "North Villas" section of the resort. It was our first time at the resort and we were taken aback - it was gorgeous. The grounds are in immaculate condition, and with modern Italian style and high quality materials throughout, it whispered opulence... More

This resort is tops! If George Clooney's hotel in Venice was a 7 star - this is 8! Top of the line. Excellent service from top to bottom. GM began in Bermuda hotel industry and his influence is everywhere. The Bungalows are exceptional with fabulous views of the sunset and complete privacy on the balcony. The rooms have high ceilings... More

Firstly, let me be clear, there is nothing wrong with Pelican Hill as a property. It is slick, modern, in a great setting, fabulous rooms, the most spectacular swimming pool and pretty attentive staff. We were there for 3 nights in September- a Friday,Saturday and Sunday night stay. Amazing weather and unseasonably warm 33 Centigrade which certainly attracted people to... More

My family and I go every year to the christmas lunch held at Pelican Hill. I must say it is the most well planned event and one I look forward to each year. There is the most delicious food and the staff are so helpful and very nice. The activities are great as well with cupcake making, carolers, puppet show,... More

Nothing more to say. Absolute paradise! The bungalows are unbelievable, the pool gorgeous and scenic, just absolutely fantastic! Went as part of honeymoon and had superb treatment throughout! The restaurants on site are a tad expensive but superb and the bungalows are a great place to sit out and enjoy a few drinks. Go here, you won't regret it!

I rarely comment about travel experieinces; but, in this case, I felt that I needed to provide some feedback. The hotel was beautiful and the view spectacular. However, given the cost, I expected a better experience. In a two night stay over Labor Day, I was confronted by three problems. First, my wife and I were forced to sit around... More

Preparing a wedding in the family, being together as a family! We spent 2 days of a re-union, resting talking, beach combing and just chilling out ! Wonderful placer to do so and as we were 7 adults in the family 1 Villa was the absolute right choice!

Exceeded our expectations for a night away. Upgraded huge room with an ocean view, with a huge bathroom, and patio to enjoy the sunset. Ate breakfast at the restaurant at the pool, which was pricey but good. Had a cabana poolside for most of the day; gracious and attentive service for lunch and drinks. Huge resort property, wish I had... More

Beautiful spot, terrific food, mostly a well run place with very helpful staff. Considering its reputation for an excellent spa, was very surprised when the yoga instructor failed to show up for a calendared yoga class. Highly unprofessional, and a bummer when you schedule your last day there around the class. Sometimes the service was spotty, eg placed on hold... More

Our family stayed at the villa of this resort in September. The ground is green and very well maintained. The room is homey with a fireplace and has a great bathroom and shower. The beds are comfy. It has a balcony with a remote view of the ocean. It's convenient to have parking just near the front of the villa... More
