Loved, loved the hotel!!! Great location. Definitely in the middle of the action. I can confirm that the beds are hard. But I really want to shout out the guys that were so helpful on the beach. They not only set us up, but we were a little tipsy and lost and they helped guide us back to the hotel.... More

My husband and I just returned from our first visit to this hotel, and we wanted to share our experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The day, desk attendant (can't remember his name, but he has thick, black glasses) was very accommodating and upgraded our room when we expressed our dissatisfaction over the mattress. A breakfast credit and... More

We always love staying at the Pelican. Great friendly service, cut theme rooms and they really know how to take care of their guests. Our favorite place to stay in South Beach and the best mojitos! We arrived early so they held our luggage so we could go to the beach for a bit. When we came back our room... More

Food was really good, rooms were just what we needed. All of the staff was really nice and helpful. We especially... More

Outside section is great for people watching, especially at the weekend. Happy hour gives residents 2 free cocktails which are excellent. Hotel staff are great, really friendly and really... More

Love the pelican hotel great service and loved the food. The beach was excellent. Very nice, perfect ocean drive view. But my favorite part of my stay at the pelican was the beach. Johnnie and Bryan are the best. They both helped set up me and my husbands 2 chairs and an umbrella. Great workers !!!!

We loved The Pelican. Each room has a different theme, ours was "psychedelic girl". The facilities were good and the location fabulous (across road from the beach and right in the centre of the action). Wifi was particularly good and worked throughout the property and down at the beach. The bar and restaurant were good and always lively. Breakfast is... More
