1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at Pelican Bay for our weekend getaway. This place was a total nightmare. To check in, it took us about half an hour as the front desk person could not locate our reservation. After this issue was resolved, they gave us room #318. The minute we walked in to the room, the room had very old smell as... More

We stayed in a state room through a Groupon deal. Our jaws dropped when we saw how gorgeous our room was. It was technically 2 rooms, a bedroom with a huge king canopy bed, and a living room with 2 sofas and a big tv. There was a nice balcony that felt totally private. The view was beautiful. The staff... More

Came to Freeport on a Groupon deal last weekend. The flight itself was a bit of an adventure but we were greeted warmly upon checking in. Our room wasn't ready upon check in but they were able to keep our luggage in a locked room and gave us a free drink coupon to use while we waited. The room itself... More

The Pelican Bay Hotel is located right next to both the marina and The Marketplace, an eclectic collection of restaurants, bars, and shops which can eliminate the need to rent a car or take a taxi unless you want to venture out into the countryside. We did take a taxi to the Wednesday night fish fry, which is a big... More

Close to the marketplace, great grounds, needs a coat of paint and some TLC to make it a top hotel. 3 pools, good staff but the waiters at Sabor are slow and got our orders wrong. Great (free) boat trip to Taino Beach Resort that has a wonderful pool with a canal. Overall, a good price.

The hotel was nice. The check in area wasn't too impressive but the rooms were nice, they had a living room area with a sliding back door to your patio where there was enough room for a few people. The rooms were clean. The location was walking distance from the marketplace where you could eat, drink, and buy souvenirs, jewelry... More

This was our 2nd visit to Pelican Bay. Love it here. So convenient to everything and wonderful service. We can't wait to get back. Spacious areas with beautiful views. Waterside state room is great with plenty of space and comfortable areas. Balcony has plenty of space and best view of the water. This place is great.

We stayed in the suites, and they were beautiful. But some of the rooms are dated. Staff is very kind and wonderful. Three beautiful pools and view of the bay. Free ferry to Taino beach that runs every hour. Breakfast was included with suites, and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend. We had a great time.

Generally had a great experience staying 6 nights at the end of June. The employees were all nice and very helpful. The hotel is in a prime location next to the shopping center and on the marina; Unexso is right next door for divers and shark-dolphin enthusiasts. The main restaurant, Sabor, is solid with a variety of dishes (be prepared... More

I didn't know what to expect from my $399 trip courtesy of Groupon and Vacation Express but everything from the flight via Sun wing airlines to my 5 day stay at Pelican Bay Resort in Freeport Bahamas was nothing short of awesome. Sun Wing's agents were professional and fast. The flight was comfortable and in some ways seemed better than... More
