The perfect spot for our beach getaway
Posted Feb 11, 2017
The Pelican Grand was so clean and the staff members were all so friendly. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on! The pool and attendants made sure you had all that you needed (towels, chairs, umbrellas, water to drink) and that was included in the daily resort fee.
Location was good- about a mile to several restaurants (we tried Aruba at Lauderdale by the sea which was more like 2.5 miles away, an $8 Uber or Lyft ride, but we walked to Flip Flop which was one of several restaurants on the intercoastal waterway only 1 mile away. There is a restaurant and a bar/grill at the Pelican but it was typically expensive fare . Next door at the Sun Tower hotel, their ground floor restaurant had a better variety on the menu and it was less expensive.
Every bar or restaurant in the area seems to have happy hour from 4-7pm, even the Pelican grand!
We used Lyft for getting around and never waited more than 2 minutes for a ride. There are plenty of drivers and it saved us a lot of money since you have to pay $33/day valet to park a car at the hotel.
I would go back to the Pelican again in a heartbeat! It's a charming hotel with updated rooms and very comfortable accommodations and it is RIGHT on the beach!
