When the taxi let us out at the Pelican Reef, we stood staring past the pool to the palm tree-framed view of the Caribbean. In that moment, we felt that we had just been dropped off in Paradise. Then, we were given tropical drinks and things got even better.
We loved being at the Pelican Reef. We loved the quiet beach. The food was unusually good, especially for a hotel. We appreciated that the staff was just as happy delivering the food to our condo as having us come downstairs. We were grateful to have laundry, and a condo with a lot of space.
There were a few things we didn’t like. The most important to us was the thinly woven curtains that let the early morning Caribbean light pour into the bedrooms. We started sleeping with t-shirts or hand towels by our pillows, so we could cover our eyes when the sunlight woke us at dawn. The other was that, in our condo, the master bedroom,which was upstairs, didn’t have a door, or any curtains at all across the large picture window. Both the morning light and downstairs noise were problems. Also, the bathtub and shower were in the bedroom, not in a separate bathroom. Anyone walking up the stairs (again, there wasn’t a door) had a full view of both.
Still, we liked the hotel so much that the pluses easily outweighed the minuses. We hope to stay there again, but maybe in a different unit.
