We got told to move to another room while they cleaned ours and said we would receive a phone call when it was ready,but still to this... More

My wife & I have been staying at Pelican Beach Resort twice a year, every year for the past 8 years! We have visited many places all over Florida and the Gulf Coast and concluded that Destin & Pelican Beach Resort is the perfect place. well maintained wide beaches, white powder like sand, clear emerald color water & a perfect...

First Mistake, booking the Panhandle Getaways was a huge error, the switched our condo to a different one with less beds than I had booked, The repeatedly lied about compensating us (they never did), Lied about whose fault it was (said it was mine? LOL) Furniture was something only a dumpster would love. Pool was ok, Beach was so overcrowded... More

Folks, this is one crowded beach and resort. They mark off the sides of the beach that you can't trespass on, and the game here seems to be getting up as early as possible to plant your umbrella (30 a day unless you have one) in a decent spot. If you don't, you walk thru people to get to the... More

Not all rooms are controlled by Pelican Beach. They are a property managment group. Some rooms are rented out and controlled by other sources. I think Pelican Beach itself is great. Excellent private beach location, great access, great parking, great pools, just a stand out resort. I rented my room through Wyndham Resorts. Room 405. The room itself was in... More

All of the condos are individually owned so the specific decor varies by unit. You can see pictures of the unit you are renting on the website which is nice. We stayed on the twentieth floor in a nicely decorated unit. These are complete condos with full kitchens and a decent amount of living space. We found it odd there... More

This was our first time to Destin. We stayed in the Terrace at the Pelican and it was very nice. We had a 3 bedroom 3 bath. We didn't have any problems. The private beach is very nice. Beautiful sand and water, clean, a little crowded. We walked from our room. There is a rinse off area for you to... More

We have stayed at Pelican Beach the past two years in two separate condos. Both were nice, updated decor, appliances and furnishings. The craftsmanship on some of the renovations were a bit shoddy, but the condos really did present well. The elevators are very slow, one was broken down for part of our stay. The beach was crazy crowded. There... More

We were here for our 28th Anniversary & we've stayed here several times before, but it is so outdated & the beach was tiny & crowded & they need to do some inflatables in the water for older kids! Also, the Tiki bar & Chan's Cafe closes way too early for vacation season! Will definitely stay somewhere else next year!

We stayed in 908 beach side. Spectacular views. Room was nicely updated and had everything we needed. PB staff was friendly and helpful when needed. Overall everything was clean. My only complaint is how crowded the beach is. Not sure why but compared to neighboring condos along the beach this place has double the people as anyone within eye site... More
