Pelican Grand Beach Resort

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Set on the sands in Fort Lauderdale, the Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a perfect paradise. You can spend your days on the white-sand beach, floating around in the lazy river and zero-entry pool, and tasting the delicious seafood and ice creams. Your room has been decorated with the ocean in mind, and is a real retreat for you to return to. And when the evenings roll in, you can take a moment, and sit on one of the rocking chairs overlooking the beach with the soothing sound of the ocean waves rolling in the background.
