“Outstanding Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

My son and his wife raved about their stay at the Pelican Grand in December and insisted that the Sunday Brunch was not to be missed. Although we were staying elsewhere, we brought friends here for a wonderfully delicious brunch. We dined inside at a roomy booth and never felt rushed as we caught up on 20 years of news! Omlette and pasta stations, freshly made waffles with a variety of toppings, wonderful salads and pastries, Mahi-Mahi, crab claws and shrimp, Mimosas and Bloody Marys, and much, much more. The staff was attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. Valet parking is available. We hope to stay at this beautiful, classy hotel on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale. The rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the sea are so inviting!

We love this resort! Still! Great location for more residential feel without the chaos further south. We are in our sixties and had no problem making the walk to Starbucks or to people watch at the public beach. But honestly you do not need to. Great staff,rooms,view,food,beach,service,cocktails...it has it all!

Room Tip: Pop for the view...worth it!

My daughter chose the Pelican Grand for her wedding -- she didn't even look at any other places after visiting the Pelican. Honestly, this hotel is so charming, so beautiful, so CLOSE to the water. The wedding was wonderful. Most of our guests came in from elsewhere and stayed at the Pelican. Everyone LOVED staying there. They all raved about it. Everything at the Pelican is nice, but not sterile, not like a lot of high end hotels. This hotel makes you feel good, it has a timeless beauty. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a charming stay in Ft. Lauderdale on the beach.

Room Tip: They do offer suites with kitchenettes. I prefer those!

It was a really nice hotel, nice rooms, nice pool, good views. But if you want to eat somewhere besides the hotel be ready to walk, bike or cab it. Which I am ok with, I like to move but still anything was at least 1.2 miles or so

Such a nice place. The parking was a little costly, but we had a great room overlooking the water. Upgraded to a suite and it was huge and comfortable. The pool was fabulous! We did not try any of the restaurants in the hotel but we will next time.

Room Tip: Go for the ocean view.

After the Ritz Carlton in Palm Beach changed hands and raised their prices I decided (after spending the last 6 spring breaks at the RC) to look for another beach resort. The Pelican Grand looked lovely on the website so I decided to try it for this spring break. What a find! The rooms are very spacious, the bed is firm with European linens, the hotel and grounds are immaculate and well maintained. And, according to my very hard to please teenagers, the beach is nicer than the beach at the RC. My only criticism has to do with the hotel service. Employees are very nice but seem to be poorly trained and, in the case of the beach staff, over worked and under staffed. One waiter for the entire beach is not enough during the high season. The poor fellow at the beach today had several groups of guests waiting for chaise and umbrella set ups and had to run up to the hotel for more towels as he had run out by 10 am, leaving us all waiting. Admittedly this is small stuff but a beach resort should be better prepared at the beach- its main draw- poor preparation leaves guests with the impression of corner cutting (cheapness) on the part of management.
