Nice clean room. Friendly staff. The restaurant down by the pool was very good with a nice presentation. The only downfall was if you have a boat they do not allow overnight parking. You will have to dock at the yacht club and taxi over because the Lucaya Marina is closed. The Lucaya Market is in walking distance.

I stayed at pelican Bay before and I was happy to see that the hotel has been renovated. Two of the current buildings have been renovated and are being occupied and the suite building He’s currently undergoing renovations. My stay was great the rooms were very clean all the air-conditioning worked. There was a issue with water supply one day but that was because the city supply water had a broken pipe.

Stayed here during my birthday and had a nice stay. Considering the island suffered damages from Hurricane Dorian two years ago and repairs are still being done, the hotel, the grounds and staff are amazing. There are restaurants and shops in walking distance and a restaurant and bar on the resort grounds. The only negative thing is that the hot water in the shower takes about 10-15 minutes to heat up. Other than that our stay was perfect.

I am a local here who visited Bones Bar last night at this hotel and while in the pool, someone stole my shoes. I reported the matter to the hotel’s security and management who were both very nonchalant and refused to assist me in reviewing the cameras to see who stole my shoes. Security made me aware that it is common for people to steal others properties at that particular bar. I then had to go to the nearest police station barefoot to report this incident that took place on the hotel’s property.This hotel needs better security and a more friendlier staff!!
