Right on the beach

Posted Jul 31, 2016 on Orbitz
Pros: Location and views
Cons: Cleanliness. Cleanliness cleanliness. This would be an easy 4+ with a bit attention to detail
Location: Awesome location
Good layout. Right on the beach. A bit worn but every thing worked fine. The only knock was cleanliness. Showers and floor grouts needed that extra attention and carpets while they looked fairly new where in dire need of deep cleaning

Will definitely be back!

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: It was quiet, comfortable and well-equipped.
Cons: A few of the beach umbrellas could use updating.
Location: On the beach, nearby shopping and dining.
We stayed in Unit 101 and enjoyed every moment. Clean, well-equipped, private, comfortable all describe our stay. There is a pool as well as access to the beach. Chairs and umbrellas are available for beach use. Staff was exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely return.

Great quiet, private condo room - ocean view!

Posted May 30, 2013
Pros: Ocean view
Cons: No maid service
Location: Exceptional near causeway but on Ocean residential area
More than what we had hoped! Just went down for a long Memorial Day weekend. We were ready to stay anywhere in Sanibel and had no expectations. I have a problem with my foot so was over joyed with ease of access to beach - and a great private spot at that. Furnishings weren't fancy or particularly modern but everything you could want was there and clean! I enjoyed having a walk in closet in master off the bathroom - I hate to see luggage in room so it was wonderful! Bedroom, living room and lanai looked to ocean - AWESOME!~!! Only 20 units - all face ocean. Quiet. One thing to note - no maid service for visitor just cleaning between guests.

Pros: The tremendous view from the room.
Cons: The dryer was just a little slow to dry towels.
Location: As close to perfection as you can get.
The ratings I gave this hotel were actually thought about. My wife and I like to travel a great deal. This vacation was for 2 weeks and was the most relaxing and mind renewing vacation we have ever taken. The room was perfect. When we walked in the air in the room hit us in the face . It was clean. There were no smells of any kind. It was just fresh and there were no air freshner smells. Just clean. Our room had a 60 inch flat screen in the living room and flat screens in both bedrooms. They were very seldom watched. the view from the bedroom window was much better. watching the dolphins swim by, the pelicans and the crows stealing food from the people on the beach. The water was beautiful and the sounds of the waves splashing on the beach when you were eating lunch on your screened in balcony were just fantastic. As we talked with the other vacationers it seemed they had all been going there for 20 years they were very loyal. I see why. It was just perfect. You could not ask for more . we will be back next year.

Customer Service

Posted Jun 18, 2012
Pros: Fully equipped kitchen and plenty of linens.
Cons: Lady behind the counter.
Location: Right on the beach water front. Not overly crowded like at a hotel.
This is a do it yourself condo. By this I mean you clean your own room, wash your own sheets and towels upon check out and take your own trash. When we arrived the room was very clean and had a beautiful view of the beach. The overall experience at Pelicans Roost was great. The maintenance man was very friendly and attended to a minor problem with the wifi in a courteous rapid response. The woman that sits behind the counter on the other hand lacks every aspect of customer service know to man. She had posted a sign stating that she was at a meeting and that she would return at 11:30. We returned at 11:45 and saw her walking around in the office, the door was still locked. I watched as she looked at my wife through the window then went behind a wall and sat down. About 5 minuets later the maintenance guy showed up and attended to our needs. I guess she was just to busy to provide customer service to her customers.

I discovered Pelican Roost while looking for a place to take my family for mother's day. We stayed at this place and were blown away by everything about it. The view of the room is incredible. The staff from the check-in clerk to Carl the maintanance manager were very attentive to our every need. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home. We liked this place so much we already went back for Memorial Day Weekend and have a 10 day trip planned for July 4th. The room had everything we wanted. Sleeps 6 very comfortably and the beach is on a great location for kids. We were able to relax without worrying about the beach being over crowded. Good secluded spot. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and relax for a few days.

Wonderful stay - wonderful service

Posted Apr 27, 2011 on Hotels
We had a wonderful time and got a real bargain for the price! Although the condo could use a bit of updating, the layout, amenities, and location far over shadowed any needed updates. We would recommend whole heartedly!
