I highly recommend staying at the Pelican Beach Resort & Conference Center. There are two Pelican beach properties and we stayed at this one last spring. I will start with negatives: we were not able to find good seafood at Destin, but that has nothing to do with Pelican Beach and the only negative I can think of. Positives: The... More

Our family enjoyed our mini vacation to PBR the weekend after Christmas. The main reason we chose this place was the heated indoor/outdoor pool. We swam everyday. The ocean water was too cold to swim in, but the kids splashed their feet and played in sand before having to get warmed up in the pool. Boys loved the bunk beds... More

This is a perfect location for the winter( I think it might be very congested in the summer) it is within 3 miles of Destin Commons ( Bass Pro has the coolest bowling alley ever) and close to tons of great restaurants, about 1.5 miles from the little town of Destin with all the shoppes. The Winn Dixie is across... More

Would like to start by saying my family stays at Pelican Beach every year for thanksgiving. Overall the location is great, amenities nice, and the staff friendly. So why the poor review??? our first day here we used the hot tub. Imagine looking at the beach and relaxing in the warm water. That's one of the reasons we booked PBR.... More

The resort was immaculate, our suite large, well appointed and with 2 full bathrooms. The beach was great, warm enough that we were swimming on Oct 31. Close walking distance to a fresh fish market, a grocery and liquor store. A 25 minute walk down the beach to the Back Porch restaurant, which we enjoyed. After a 21/2 day drive... More

Been coming to Pelican Beach Resort since 2008. My wife and I were there in May and Oct. 2014. Never booked with anyone other than their helpful folks at Pelican. They keep me posted of special deals during the year. I have never had a bad experience with any of the condos we have stayed in. We have had both... More

This review is not in any way towards the Pelican Beach Resort. It is regarding the company we booked our vacation, Sterling Resorts, (It is our understanding that this unit belongs to Sterling). We have just returned from our Destin vacation. There are some things we feel we need to share regarding our room at the Pelican Beach Resort, Unit#... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pelican Beach resort after renting a room from VRBO. We stayed in room #803 which was on the ocean side. We stayed here from October 4th - October 10th. The traffic around Destin can get pretty hairy and unless you catch a light up the road you might as well forget trying to... More

I have been coming to the Resorts of Pelican Beach since August of 1997. My family and I have never been disappointed. I've never booked thru another company, I've always called the Pelican directly. They have never been anything but helpful and pleasant to us. This year we took my parents and they were also impressed. I can't imagine anyone... More
