Pretty View, but building is old and the decor is a little dated. No amenities - definitely not for the business traveler. Was surprised by all of the great reviews. Things in the room didn't work right (no TV). Just OK.

We were here the weekend of Oct 26 thru Oct 30. The Condo we stayed in was 501, 5th floor ocean view and a patio out the master bedroom as well. The condo was clean and appeared to have all new appliances. The view was amazing. Loved the restaurant the food was very good and the guy that ran it was super friendly. Loved the Tiki hut as well, The pool was very clean and warm considering it had rained all day the day we got there. The hot tub was perfect as well. I've read many reviews about the people at the front desk not being friendly. Those people most just hate everything. Once we checked in we had no need for the front desk. Whenever we were in the lobby they always greeted us and said hello. We will definitely stay here again.

Pelican Beach never fails us! We stayed in condo #1709 in February, #310 in March, #714 in May and just checked out of #211. The resort staff is friendly,checkin in/out was a breeze, condos are clean, well stocked with kitchen items and plenty of towels,condo are spacious, pools are clean and warm in the evening, not crowded although we skip peak season for a reason, everyone is family friendly, some of the employees (beach service,security, front desk and maintenance)even remember us from previous trips. And always welcome us back to the resort...as if we never left! I cant wait to book my vacations for next year.

My wife and I decided to come to Destin because it is one of our favorite beaches in Florida and you can’t beat the price for some of the condos. Sometimes it’s better to spend more money and we wish in this situation we would have spend a little bit more per night and stayed closer to Seaside. Below are some Pros and Con’s about the resort itself. We rented this condo through Air bnb and as far as that process goes, the communication with the owner was excellent As he really showed that he cared And was responsive and wanted you to have a good experience. Pros -Condo was recently renovated so had New furniture and appliances and was Clean. -Staff was very friendly and could tell They cared about giving you the best experience. -Facility was very clean and elevators Were really fast getting you to the top Floors. -Security is very friendly and will help in Anyway they can should a problem occur. -Beach was really awesome to walk down At night once all the chairs was moved. Cons -Beach access to small for the amount of People that can stay at the Pelican. -Rental company takes up 4-5 rows in off Season and chair rentals are $35/Day. You can only set up personal chairs behind rental chairs which only gives you About 30% of the beach space and you Can’t see the ocean. -We knee this going in so instead of Dealing with people we decided to drive 2 min down the road to Henderson Beach State Park and Pay $6/Day to use their Beach. It was very quiet and more Peaceful here so it made the trip for my Wife and I. Felt like we were the only ones On the beach. -This is a smoke free facility but Smokers are everywhere. They do fine You if you are caught smoking but the Fine if $200 is not enough to convince Someone to not smoke. Security at the Resort does not have enough authority in This situation as the people below our condo decided it was okay to smoke 24/7 and ruined our balcony experience. I was able to capture a photo of the people Smoking and security was unable To do anything about it as they had to catch them with their own eyes even though it was in the photo and multiple Complaints not just ours came their way. The security was very helpful and wanted To make it better but every Time he went Out to check they had conveniently went Back into their room where he couldn’t See them. If you are a smoke free property you as a company should be Better about enforcing it and give your Staff The ability to make the right decision. Overall it is a good resort for the price. I have never had an issue on Vacation with smokers in any condo unit until this resort which I was surprised by. People were just Being inconsiderate of others as multiple people were yelling on the balconies to get the family beneath us to stop but they just seemed to not care even after the security guard talked to them. Next time we will be staying more in the Seaside area than Destin.
