If I were to imagine what paradise was, this would be the place that pops into mind. Hands down the most beatiful and prestige resort I ever been to in my life. You have to experience it to understand. Breath taking views, and amazing villas. I stayed in Villa room # 737. The view from this place looks like a... More

I just returned from an absolutely perfect weekend at Pelican Hill. We had a family reunion to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday, and the resort went the extra mile (miles!) to make it a weekend we will never forget. My dad, who loves to be pampered, was all smiles the entire weekend. We all were! We stayed in two villas... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Inn at Pelican Hill in August, 2015. We had a mixed stay – some things were great, some good, and others just awful. Because of this, I’m reluctant to unqualifiedly recommend the hotel. Let me explain. First, the physical surroundings: We stayed in a Bungalow Guest Room, which I believe to... More

My husband and I nipped away to Newport Beach to the Pelican Hill Resort. It's a stunning place with a gorgeous outdoor pool (The Coliseum). The concierge Madison was INCREDIBLE and set us up at amazing places to eat on and off property. Our villa (221) was beautiful, with a private patio overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed the spa there...

If this were a moderately priced resort, I'd be okay with it. But it is not. And you do not get what you pay for here. We came up from San Diego to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. We chose Pelican Hill because we heard good things about it and we also have a 5-yr-old and knew that it had... More

While I am pleased to read that your son enjoyed his experience at Camp Pelican, I am troubled to know that we did not deliver a positive experience for you and your family, particularly as you were celebrating your husband’s milestone birthday.

We rented the 4 bedroom Villa. Our first time staying at the resort. Although we only live 20 minutes away this was the perfect spot to entertaining 16 of our closest friends and family for my wifes 50th. The resort handled everything as requested and the property is amazing. The views cant be beat even though we had some drizzle... More

One of the nicest resorts we have ever stayed in! The bungalows are beautiful, elegant, and so comfortable. My favorite thing to do is turn on the fire, read in bed and just cozy up! The views of the ocean are terrific! The spa is THE nicest one I have ever been to! The restaurants are all fabulous and the... More

It's a great holiday resort if you are coming as a couple or family. The room was nice, large, comfortable and cosy, so was the bathroom. The restaurants are good and the golf course is amazing. I was expecting a bit more peace and calm at the pool side but it was way too crowded and noisy, not at all... More

Although we live within a half hour of Pelican Resort, we come here for special occasions with family. It is a 5-Diamond resort. Everything is first class. The staff is friendly and helpful. Accommodations are immaculate, comfy, and spacious. All have fabulous views. Their large circular pool is one of the largest of it's kind, really special. Their cabanas are... More
