My husband and I just completed our second stay at Pelican Hill within the last 12 months. The views, setting, linens and amenities are truly first class. All restaurants on site have fabulous food and selection. As expected with any top notch resort, retaurant prices are on the higher end but you get what you pay for - high end, quality food with great selection. The only restaurant I felt was a bit "off" was the Coliseum Pool & Grill. They are a bit over priced for what they serve. We found service from Housekeeping, Spa Staff, Golf Cart Drivers and Poolside Servers to be OUTSTANDING! They were all warm, kind, down to earth and friendly. The one area which I was surprised to be so vastly different from our last visit was the warmth of the Front Desk, Valet and Doorman. They all seemed a bit cold with indifferent attitudes which was much different from our first visit nearly 12 mos ago. I hope this area improves as the resort is truly a gem...
