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.

Very friendly staff at pool/beach Brian Brown was such a nice guy brought us water and had chairs and towels for us. The room was beautiful. Perfect ocean view when we sat down and ate breakfast at Ocean20. I had Salmon Eggs Benedict for the first time so good, I highly recommend it.

Our visit was nothing short of spectacular. The customer service was exceptional, the ocean views from our room was breath taking, and the cleanliness made us feel so safe and comfortable. We can’t wait to return! A special thanks to Brian Brown for his hospitality and getting us settled on the beach.

the hotel was not clean at all. The property was run down and dirty. I didn't see the staff sanitizing. There was hair in my tub. This hotel use to be so nice, its gone down hill for sure. The location is amazing but the pool had weeds everywhere on the deck.
