I booked this place 1) because of location and 2) because of the decor. This place has a very unique and distinct look, which appealed to me. This was a short girls (2 of us) weekend and we stayed in a 2 twin room. We loved the way that the room was decorated, each room has its own theme. You... More

This was my first time visiting the Pelican Hotel and i am totally hooked. I never write reviews but I just felt I needed to. I heard they were really good, that's why I booked with them. The location is perfect, the food is really good and the customer service which is typically not great in South Beach was incredible... More

It was clean and equipped with small fridge, safe, large flat screen, good size bathroom with high quality amenities. The... More

I came to the beach for my wife's 49th birthday event. We've been to a lot of beaches but the hospitality of the young beach crew at Miami's South beach 8th street beach entrance were by far the best EVER at any location I've traveled. Wonderful group!

McKevin and Audi were great help. We were set up in a spot where you could see the water! That umbrella did wonders for us and Mckevin was always on top of us making sure we were good and had a good time out there! He was dope!
