We've been coming to Resorts of Pelican Beach since it opened around 1997. We were owners of a 2 bedroom 2 bath in the Pelican building on the second floor for several years and then purchased a 3B3B in the Terrace building once it opened. The Terrace building sits back a little from the Pelican building having it's own parking,... More

We have been staying here for years and I've never rated this place. It's a really good to upper mid level place, depending on you're room. We've stayed on all the corners and the middle of the back, always on the 19th and 20th floors. I'm not telling you all I know, but the corners are good. 01=sunrise 11=sunset. The... More

It depends on what's important. I felt the room and view (16th fl), were excellent. (The evening of the 24th we witnessed a wonderful thunderstorm that was mesmerizing). The only thing I thought was a little stupid was that there were no coffee filters. The fact that for $3.00 you get a hundred of them AND a weekend in Las... More

The 10th floor condo is very nice. The view from the balcony is amazing. There was rarely any noise from neighbors beside or above us. The elevators are super fast and the wait for one was always short. This condo has a beach umbrella and chairs so you can save the $25/day rental fee. Biggest issue was how crowded the... More

I love this property. Our room was clean and furnished. It was very large with a complete kitchen and living room area. The entire property was very well maintained and clean. The beach bar was great so definitely take advantage of that.

We stayed in The Terrace building of the Resorts of Pelican Beach in mid-August. We had a two bedroom/2 bath condo. (#602 to be exact) Before check-in, I called to see if the room we'd be assigned had double or queen sized beds in both bedrooms as it was two couples who'd be sharing the room. They accommodated us right... More

We (family of four-kids 4 and 9) stayed here for Labor Day weekend and I have to say I was pretty pleased. Pros: Central Location: If you are in Destin and want to do the touristy things, there is no better location. You are within a mile of Big Kahuna (rip-off but many like it), Track, Alvin Shops, Fudpuckers, etc.... More

We have been coming here for years. It is really a good deal for your money. Its a great way to people watch and hear the ocean. This time our unit was extra clean. We were in unit 1611. You actually can see the stingrays and dolphins jumping. I like the added security at night. I love this place and... More
