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

Stayed at Pelican Sands Beach Resort on a few occasions while my Father was a patient at John Flynn Hospital. What a terrific spot! 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 Room was very outdated and not very clean.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.

Pelican Sands is clean & comfortable in a fantastic absolute beachfront position, close to shops, with views to die for. Management could not have been more accommodating. Excellent BBQ area and pool. Great value for money - we'll be back!!

I have stayed at this resort 3 times, on each occasion for business visits. I have always found the rooms clean and well cared for. The managers (Jayne and Rob) are a very friendly, cheerful, and hard working couple who do their utmost to make everyone's stay as pleasant as possible. The property is the tallest building in this area... More

Very large clean apartment with a very friendly welcome. Hosts were extremely helpful throughout our stay when needed. Close to shops, beach, airport and buses. Only a short drive or a nice walk along the beach to Coolangatta shops and night life. I will definitely be back (sooner rather that later) and will be recommending to my friends and family.... More
