“Outstanding service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

My wife and I visited the Pelican Grand for our wedding anniversary in October, and the staff treated us like old friends from the minute we arrived. Everyone we encountered, from the Front Desk, to the restaurant, to the beach was friendly, helpful, and eager to find ways to make us feel special. We had to move rooms after the first night because of the way I booked the reservation, and the wonderful associate at the front desk gave us a very quiet corner room with spectacular beach views. You will love the beach, which is set off from the more crowded parts to the south and north. Special thanks to Stefani B., Rachid, Turner, Jason in the restaurant, and Katherine for all they did for us. We can't wait to come back!

The best hotel in Ft. L -- you will not be disappointed! The beach, pool, lazy river, Sunday brunch, hotel decor, food/drink delivery pool side or beach make this hotel a perfect 10! It's just an amazing place full of charm!

Great resort, great staff from the Valet to the front desk, to the servers, to the outside attendants, truly a great place to visit. The drinks were a little expensive but very tasty. Very kid friendly, the Lazy river was GREAT!!

Room Tip: Oceanfront is spectacular. The waves at night are great sleeping noise.

I have never written a hotel review before but after our stay I felt compelled due to our poor experience. We were told there was some construction goin on but we would never know it because it's on the other end of the building. Well we heard it non stop for 4 days. Oh and the construction had both restrooms closed in the lobby. We checked in our room and immediately noticed the carpet was filthy. Food and drink stains were everywhere. I went back to the desk and was told, "We will either shampoo your carpet in a bit or upgrade you to a better room". Fair enough. 4 days later we hadn't heard from a soul. Let's see....One day our room was never cleaned. Finally around 4:00 my wife talked to the front desk and they said it would be taken care of immediately. By 5:30 we gave up and I went down to get my own towels. Oh and they never cleaned the room. The furniture in the room was broken including the coffee table, the breakfast table and the TV cabinet and the tub stopper. The furniture on the deck was as cheap as can be possibly purchased. One of the tv's didn't work. A waitress took 40 minutes to bring a drink at the pool. After it finally arrived watered down and we said we didn't want it she said she would talk to the manager. She never came back but charged us anyway. And the pool and lazy river were green. After a couple days we just decided to laugh it off. The day before leaving my wife voiced her concerns to the front desk. The clerk later told us the manager would give us a breakfast coupon! They finally knocked a little off the bill but never anything approaching an apology. They had a nice assortment of paddle boards and kayaks to rent but no body to rent them to you! We were told to go to the hotel next door. Really? Overall the staff was very friendly and the beach and view from the room was nice. But I've stayed in places in ft. Laud much better for half the price. They have let what was probably an excellent hotel run down to not even average

The hotel is beautiful but without the staff this place would be nothing. Everyone is so friendly, from colby at the front desk to the bartender and waitresses in the lounge to the guys in the pool and beach areas esp. The gentleman from Puerto Rico (sorry i forgot his name). It was so nice being right on the water. Just realize though that if you don't have a car then you will either be doing a lot of walking or using the taxis add the closest restaurant outside of the hotel is 1.1 miles away.

Wonderful large room with a king bed and private balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the resort's pool area - even has its own lazy river feature to float around. Beautifully landscaped. Staff appear very happy to work here-it shows by the way all guests are greeted and treated. Our stay was wonderful!

We just stayed for 6 nights and it was absolutely great! We actually got married on the beach on 12-13-14 and turned out perfect! Food and service was awesome and the hotel staff were always willing to make your stay comfortable. The suite was large and very clean with an amazing view of the ocean!

The two downsides which prevented it from being a 5 were:

Construction: hotel is currently undergoing some remodel and building an indoor/outdoor spa and another bar. For most part, wasn't that noticeable unless trying to eat food on the porch of the hotel or relaxing on the beach. Once the construction is done though, the place will be even better!

Wedding Cake: if you plan to get married and also looking for a nice simple wedding cake, go somewhere else. Not sure who they use as their baker but the wedding cake looked like a birthday cake with really poor design and nothing elegant about it even though it cost $80. Walmart makes better looking cakes. At least the staff and manager we talked to agreed with the poor quality and we ended up just sending it back and they dropped the charge.

Will definately plan to stay at the hotel though agaun and won't go anywhere else in florida. Hopefully will be back in 2 years!!
