Pelican Grand Beach Resort

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

One of the few hotels in Fort Lauderdale with direct beach access, the Pelican Grand’s location is as its name suggests! Perfectly capturing that old-style Floridian grandeur, it’s a wonderful place to relax, making the most of the white sands on your doorstep and the surrounding area. As well as complimentary chairs and umbrellas down at the beach, where you can while away sunny afternoons with a good book, there’s a zero-entry swimming pool, ideal for youngsters as well as adults. Both will also love the lazy river and an oceanfront fitness centre may inspire the health conscious amongst you to lift a few weights! If you’re feeling hungry, head to Ocean 2000, an American-style bistro serving seafood and steaks against a magnificent ocean backdrop. The restaurant features the only Sunday Oceanfront Brunch on Fort Lauderdale Beach so be sure to book early as its very popular indeed. Make the most of the fine weather and dine al-fresco on the veranda, also the perfect place to tuck into an ice-cream treat from the Emporium! For drinks and snacks, the lounge is ideal, sipping tropical cocktails whilst admiring the views.
