My husband & I recently spent a week in an owner's unit through VRBO. The view from the veranda is amazing and the heated lazy river can't be beat for total relaxation. Beach chair & umbrella set-up are complimentary for guests. The taxi fare from the FLL airport is $29 plus tax and the #11 bus stops right in front... More

Our room at the Pelican was extremely comfortable - it's like being wrapped in a baby's blanket. It's actually two rooms separated by a French door and French window - living room and bedroom. This set up made made us feel like we were renting a beach house instead of a hotel room. The couch and love seat in the... More

Only good things to say about our 4 day respite last weekend from cold Chicago. Great room, gorgeous view, excellent service. Fun (warm) lazy river and, my favorite, rocking chairs on the veranda facing the ocean. We never left the resort (no need to) and every meal was delicious. I have already recommended it to friends and family and we... More

My family of 5 stayed her for 3 nights pre cruise and 3 nights post cruise last year. Found the accommodations to be quite adequate for our needs and we had a great view of the ocean. The pool area was great and my kids loved it especially the lazy river, food and drinks at the pool were great although... More

My son and I had our flights cancelled on 2/21 so we had 3 nights to spend in Fort Lauderdale. Found this gem and had a great time. Nice pool and beach area. Excellent food but slow service. Great drinks and overall relaxed vibe. Would absolutely stay here again.

We had a suite as my sister was visiting. Wonderful view very nice accommodations. Service was top notch as was the food. Now for the down side. The "fitness center" was an embarrassment with one out of the two treadmills on the fritz. The other equipment looked like it was out of Mick's gym from the original Rocky movie. Not... More

My husband and I had fantastic experience at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. JANIUS at the front desk could not be more helpfull and were always happy to assist.Great ocean view from terrace. I can thoroughly recommend Fort Lauderdale as a place to visit and the Pelican Grand Beach Resort as an excellent place to stay.

The pelican is a great place to stay with family. The food is delicious and there is quick service. The weather was less than ideal, but the staff rose to the occasion, particularly Kyle, who brought out hot chocolate to the pool! We have stayed here numerous times and would return in the future!
