My girlfriends and I were down in South Beach for July 4th weekend. We weren't sure what we wanted to eat but we very hungry. So we stopped at the Pelican to try something new. The wait was a lil long but the food was well worth the wait! Everything was excellcent..we ordered appertizers clams and oysters they were great. The Crab Cake was the best I ever had!! The lobster and crab salad was really good it was a whole lobster that was cooked to perfection with pieces of crab meat. My girlfriend ordered the snapper it was cooked and seasoned really well. My next trip to Miami this will be my first stop. I highly recommend this restaurant a lil pricey because of the liquor we ordered but worth every dime!

The staff was well trained, helpful and always professional. The room was more than we expected; very spacious and comfortable. The food was great-free breakfast was included, and the bar was cozy as well along with great service from the bartenders. The hotel is across from the beach so it is an easy walk to swim and layout-the hotel also provided free beach chairs.

Room Tip: all rooms have a theme; research and see what you would like!!

The pelican hotel is not only a colorful and interesting hotel with themed room. It is place where the staff goes above and beyond. Very comfortable rooms, large two person shower (in our room). Complimentary beach towels and lounges, throw in breakfast, and the included happy hour and you really have a great place to relax and enjoy sobe.

Two minor issues, the ac was a bit loud, and the ceiling fan was very noisy.

We had a great stay, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Room Tip: The district is very lively at night. But our room was in the back of the hotel, and was very quiet...

The Pelican Hotel and staff gave us the complete south beach experience. We had complimentary breakfast, beach towels and chairs. We woke up to the beautiful park and beach from our ocean view window and we were right in the middle of ocean drive with everything within walking distance. We will be back!!!

I stayed 3 nights, even though I was alone, however I felt as if I was between my family and friends. The hotel is very cozy , clean, unique decoration . . . The beddings were excellent, no noise (room 214). But the outstanding service from the front desk (Miguel and Mentore) was unmatchable , they organized all my bookings, fishing trip, outlet mall bus, airport transfer . . .. I even lost my mobile in the mall bus, they managed to call and follow up to get it back. The hotel has excellent location , just cross the street and you are at the beach, your chaise long waiting for you. As well, it is few meters away from the best tropical club Mangos. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I was staying in 214, very quiet and spacious.

This place is in a primo location, Ocean Dr. Beach is just across the street and the hotel provides beach chairs and towels for you. The staff is very friendly and personable! Pelican also offers a great complimentary breakfast for guests of the hotel, which is very good! Lunch is also great there too! For happy hour they comp guests 2 drinks per person. How great is that!?
Loved this place from the minute walked in to the room!
We will definitely go back there. 5 star place.
