“Great Family Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

My husband, 3 year old daughter and I had a blast relaxing at this beautiful resort last month. We were looking for a clean spacious room (highly recommend a King Ocean Front Suite), beach and pool fun, and good food...and that's what we found at Pelican Grand. Mohini, who waited on us for our outdoor lunches, was super sweet and did not rush us with our meal. The guys helping out in the pool and beach area were friendly and helpful with our chairs, towels, and toys. Overall, Pelican Grand is a an excellent value and fabulous place to watch the sunrise.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with family

We just returned from the Pelican Grand, and we had a wonderful stay. The view of the ocean from our room was incredible, and we enjoyed watching the sun rise every morning. Tika at the front desk is everything that other reviewers have stated. She is the best! She was very helpful prior to our arrival, and she made sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

The Pelican is a boutique-style hotel, and I believe the staff/employees make this a fantastic place to stay. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We could not have asked for a more perfect week.

Room Tip: The oceanfront room is worth the extra cost. We were on the 6th floor, but we would recommend reques...

My son and his wife raved about their stay at the Pelican Grand in December and insisted that the Sunday Brunch was not to be missed. Although we were staying elsewhere, we brought friends here for a wonderfully delicious brunch. We dined inside at a roomy booth and never felt rushed as we caught up on 20 years of news! Omlette and pasta stations, freshly made waffles with a variety of toppings, wonderful salads and pastries, Mahi-Mahi, crab claws and shrimp, Mimosas and Bloody Marys, and much, much more. The staff was attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. Valet parking is available. We hope to stay at this beautiful, classy hotel on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale. The rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the sea are so inviting!

We love this resort! Still! Great location for more residential feel without the chaos further south. We are in our sixties and had no problem making the walk to Starbucks or to people watch at the public beach. But honestly you do not need to. Great staff,rooms,view,food,beach,service,cocktails...it has it all!

Room Tip: Pop for the view...worth it!

My daughter chose the Pelican Grand for her wedding -- she didn't even look at any other places after visiting the Pelican. Honestly, this hotel is so charming, so beautiful, so CLOSE to the water. The wedding was wonderful. Most of our guests came in from elsewhere and stayed at the Pelican. Everyone LOVED staying there. They all raved about it. Everything at the Pelican is nice, but not sterile, not like a lot of high end hotels. This hotel makes you feel good, it has a timeless beauty. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a charming stay in Ft. Lauderdale on the beach.

Room Tip: They do offer suites with kitchenettes. I prefer those!

It was a really nice hotel, nice rooms, nice pool, good views. But if you want to eat somewhere besides the hotel be ready to walk, bike or cab it. Which I am ok with, I like to move but still anything was at least 1.2 miles or so
