We stayed at the Terrace 605. The 2 bedroom condo was modern and decorated nicely. The beds were very comfy as well as the sofas. We enjoyed the view of the lake from our balcony. We definitely want to come back to the Resorts of Pelican Beach!

Stayed at at Pelican beach resort #1802. Never again..Bed was noisy!!! Dirty utensils. Internet would never work and the owner blamed it on the connection coming to the building. But other rooms on the same floor had internet.

Old resort. Needs updating. No a/c in lobby or elevators. Try coming off the beach in july in Florida and no a/c in elevator or hallways. Not very welcoming. If you plan on using the gym, make sure you bring a towel and plenty of water because no water fountain to be found. Weights are as old as jack lalane!... More

My daughter and I stayed in 1401 recently and found it to be above and beyond our expectations. We have been in other units but will always try to stay in this one from now on and will tell our friends this as well. Some may say all these units are alike, but they really are not. This one is...

I would give it a 1/2 star if available. Do your research before booking. Staff is rude, beach is way too crowded. If you rent a beach chair they place you tip To tip of the umbrella. People have to crawl under you to get to the water. Meanwhile 0 people on both sides of the roped off space. We... More

My family of 5 stayed for 7 days. The staff was nice. The condo was great! The view was gorgeous! My only complaints are. The beach is way over crowded for the limited space . And the beach chairs they line up right on the front row,make it IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to access the beach. And heaven forbid you walk... More
