We booked our room at the Terrace through VRBO. The Terrace is another tower on the grounds of the Resorts of Pelican Beach. Staying at either tower entitles you to use of all amenities at either tower. Let me begin by saying I have stayed at many resorts---a resort this is not. Do not be deceived by the website which advertises a tiki bar (a slushie hut which adds alcohol to drinks from a machine), the bakery/ice cream shop is actually a convenience store which does make great french fries, and the pools are a bit small for the amount of bodies that are housed in these two towers. I felt the whole place including our condos bathrooms needed a good pressure wash!
The biggest complaint was the amount of chairs on the beach. At high tide the attendant literally covered every available space on the beach with the rental chairs marked with reserved signs and both sides of the beach were posted with private beach signs for the adjacent properties (with nearly empty beaches!). We were traveling with our three children (8,9,12) and another couple with smaller children (3,4,9) and had great difficulty finding a place to plop our belongs and dig a hole or build a sandcastle.
