My husband and I had booked this over a month in advance because we both needed to get away after a stressful few months. We stayed for 5 nights. We could not have asked for better. The valet folks (Jeremiah and Victor) and the bellman (Alessandro) were extremely welcoming and helpful. We arrived earlier than check in and had to wait which we completely understood. My husband took this time to take a little nap in the beautifully appointed lobby. The front desk team (Wes and Ashley and Rodline) were so professional and yet so personable. We had a marvelous suite. It had a balcony with a breath taking view of the Atlantic. When they describe this resort as "Old Florida Charming" they are saying it as a great compliment and with the idea of luxury in mind. The décor, the cleanliness (housekeeping staff for the 7th floor were very nice and non-invasive), the comfort of the bed and the furniture were way beyond my expectations. It was quiet despite a wedding being celebrated on Saturday and Mother's Day on Sunday. The beach was a big draw for me and the pool/ lazy river was a big draw for my husband. At the beach, Leroy was a great help in setting up our area where we lazed the morning away. Jen served us drinks on the beach and was a great personality and wit. At the pool, Nathan was very attentive and made sure we found a spot and were taken care of. In the late afternoon it was a joy just to sit in the rocking chairs on the veranda and watch the ship and pelicans go by. During our five days we were lucky to meet a number of excellent servers...first in the restaurant (Katie, Isaac, Jenny and Michael) and then at the lounge (Melissa and Shannon). They all made the experience exceptional. Just a note on the food and beverage side of the experience. The restaurant features some amazing dishes, most notably, the salmon omelet, the chocolate chip pancakes, the filet, the scallops, the chorizo appetizer and the crab cake appetizer. The soups were very good as well...I could live on the conch and veg soup I had on my first day. My husband had the gazpacho every opportunity he could! In the late evening we would go to the lounge and order a dessert (the rum bread pudding!!) and a nightcap. The drinks were amazing. Hyde Park Corner and the Pelican Brief are two I seriously need to replicate...soon! The wine selection is extensive as well. I enjoyed a few glasses of those just to make sure I could write about them. (Yup, I am selfless that way.) All in all one of the most pleasant vacations / getaways my husband and I have had in a while. While there, we were already planning when we could get back in the next couple of months. That to me is the greatest compliment I can give. Nicely done Pelican Grand...keep up your high standards and you will have us as guests for life!
