We have been there 10 years ago for the first time and we love to come again. We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment with beautiful front sea view. Very clean, quiet, privat and comfortable. Lovely fitness room and nice, clean pool. But the best is a privat beach - absolutely clean. Sea is stunning. In hotel is very friendly staff,... More

This was a great hotel that was right in the middle of everything, right in the middle of everything, and just down the street Big Kahunas water-park. The rooms were very clean. It had a great view and we never ran out of anything to do. The only draw back is that we stayed closer to the top floor so... More

This is the 8th year we have stayed at the Terrace building at the Resorts of Pelican Beach. The Terrace is not right on the beach but a short walk to the beach. The rooms at the Terrace are 2 and 3 bedroom units with 2 or 3 baths. Every unit is a little different as each unit is owned... More

Escape winter and crowds; enjoy great building management (but be sure and deal with Pelican Beach management vs. an off-site broker); the only "white" you'll see is the pristine sand vs. snow! and you'll commune with the pelicans leisurely and conveniently. Walking the beach is wonderful; it's all yours. The restaurants are not booked to the gills (pardon the pun)... More

We stayed at Unit 1511 last week for vacation and really enjoyed it. It was a very quiet week on the beach, not hardly any kids and the snowbirds were starting to move in. When you went out to eat, there were no crowds in the restaurants and stores. 1511 is a one bedroom condo that sleeps six with two... More

The location of the Pelican Beach Resorts is great. There are two buildings at the resort that are both on the gulf. We stayed in the cheaper of the two, yet the room was very nice and the room was right on the gulf. They also have a building not on the beach. We will be back as this was... More

This was our first time in the Panhandle as we normally stick to SW Florida and take a couple of days out visiting further south or the Miami area but on our last couple of visits we've decided on doing road trips to see a bit more of what northern Florida has to offer. We rented a 2 bedroom condo... More

This vacation was one of the best little breaks my adult daughter and I have ever experienced. The staff at this resort are the nicest, friendliest, most helpful people I may have ever met at a hotel/resort. Check in was a breeze, early at that. It is very clean and well-kept. This was my daughter's first visit there and she... More

This is our second time staying at the pelican beach resort condos in the fall. The fall prices are really good and it's not as busy this time of year. The beach isn't overly packed so you don't feel overwhelmed by too many people. Our room was nice and clean and smelled wonderful when we got here. Our view of... More
