One of the best positions on the Gold Coast. We stayed in unit 802 on the 8th floor in a two bedroom unit. The views from all rooms were to die for. The proximity to the beach, well it's almost on the beach!! The recently renovated unit was very comfortable with all the mod cons. The managers are very friendly... More

We stayed in the resort for one week from just after Christmas 2014 until January the 3rd 2015. We were in unit 501 which is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit situated on the 5th floor. The unit has expansive beautiful views North to Surfers Paradise and a partial view South to Coolangatta. From the back balconies the Gold Coast... More

Very few places in this price range are right on the beach these days. Every time I walked into the main living area of our 6th floor apartment I was reminded of Hawaii. It felt that wonderful. The living area is generous and the large patio doors open on to a nice balcony which looks directly down on to the... More

Affordable but dated in 503 and well due a reno but that said very good value and we are not that hung up on the age. Very clean and every thing works and the views are brilliant. You can walk north to a shopping centre in 10mins and there is a fish and chip coffee shop 50m south which is... More

Gaze at the ocean from your living room and balcony - it is absolute beachfront. both times we were able to sit and watch passing whales, dolphins and huge schools of fish. The units are quiet...

Travelling with my mum and baby, we were amazed by the location of Pelican Sands, right on the beach! Sitting on the balcony, we had 2 rainbow lorikeets sit on our hands while watching a whale and it's new bub swim right in front of us. The rooms were very spacious and modern and the beds extremely comfortable! I could... More

This is a good place to stay. The rooms are very clean and the living room is nice with the couches and tv. You have an ocean view, and it is beachside. The pool is in a really good location and the hitting is nice. Overall, this place is really nice. However, the Internet is paid, but it is fast.

It has been around 12 years since i had stayed at this resort and the place has not changed a bit. Room was very outdated and not very clean. Such a shame as the view is magnificent. Will not be staying here again.
