Our 4 day stay on Pelican Beach was awesome. The boat ride out was shorter than expected (about 45 min or so) and you're pretty much in instant chill mode once you hit the island. The rooms are nice and large with private bathrooms (at least in the duplex cottage we were in). Probably the most attractive thing about the island is being able to walk out and snorkel from shore. You can go quite a ways out and really explore the reefs just from shore. We did do side trip out to the Coral Gardens reef which was well worth it, as was the night snorkel.
Maybe the only drawback was a few unwelcomed cockroaches at night. I've dealt with worse and solved the issue of them by spraying DEET at the bottom of the bed-posts to ensure they wouldn't be making any unwanted appearances in our bed, but they were present and unwelcome.
The food here was excellent and there were plenty of snacks throughout the day to keep you full and happy.
