Description of the Fort Lauderdale vacation studio rental
Thank you so much for considering our unit at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Steve and I purchased our rental in mid 2011, and have enjoyed spending family time at the resort with our children and grand kids.



Each year, we continue to make more and more updates to make your vacation experience the best it can be.

Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are:

- Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both ends. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.)

- New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.)

- Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit)

- Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original 2 cubic foot compact fridge with a 4.4 cubic foot model)

- Larger microwave (just replaced the smaller original unit with a high end convection model)

- Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area)

- More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs)

- Plus, plus, plus more

The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal.



The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a Four Star Resort, located directly on the beach in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The oceanfront resort is situated on 500 feet of sandy beach, perfect for tanning and swimming. The property is one of only two resort/hotels in Fort Lauderdale located directly on the ocean, as almost all other hotels/resorts are located across A1A.

From our 5th floor unit, the view is amazing. You can sit on the private balcony, look out over the water and hear the sounds of waves crashing onto the shore.

The upscale resort is ideal for:
Couples for a Romantic Getaway, featuring Private Room with Private Balcony, Oceanside Veranda, Private Beach, Upscale Bar/Lounge, and Rooftop Patio
Families with Children, as the Resort Property is directly on the Ocean, and featuring a Resort-style Pool and Lazy River, and an Ice Cream Shoppe
Business Professionals seeking an Upscale and Relaxing Environment with High-Speed Internet Access, Business Center, Oceanside Restaurant ideal for Business Meetings, Upscale Bar/Lounge

The resort requires that you are at least 21 years of age and have a valid credit card to check in.

Check-in 4:00pm, Check-out 11:00am

FEES:

o Valet parking: If you have a car, the resort charges $30/day, plus 11% tax, with in-and-out privileges. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative for parking in the area; however, there is taxi service and a city bus line that runs right outside the resort.

o Housecleaning: $75 Check-out Cleaning fee, plus 11% tax is required. If you wish to have additional cleaning during your visit, the resort changes $35 per occurrence, plus 11% tax. You must request optional housecleaning when you check in if you want your room cleaned and the Consumable Supplies replaced by the Resort staff during your stay. If you do not request optional housecleaning, there will be no replenishment of Consumable Supplies (for example, toilet paper, Kleenex, shampoo, conditioner, soap, coffee, cups, clean towels, etc.) during your stay.

o Reservation Fee: $20 Check-in reservation fee, plus 11% tax. (This is a fee we collect and are required to pass through to the resort.)

o Internet Access: Effective January 23, 2014, the Pelican Grand began charging for Internet access for all privately owned units. The new policy is to charge $19.95 per day per device, plus 11% tax. This seems very high to us, but they claim this is consistent with pricing at other hotels in the area. As an alternative, we suggest you use the personal hotspots that are available on most smart phones as a more economical alternative to signing into the Pelican WIFI. Go to ?settings? on your phone and turn on the ?hotspot? button. It should show you the name of your phone?s network and the password for you to use on your other devices to hook up. Then go to wireless connections on your laptop, select the name of your phone?s network and enter the password. You can enter multiple devices at the same time on your hotspot network, i.e. I-pads and computers. Please note that if you use this to watch movies or other high data uses, you will want to keep an eye on your service provider?s data limit.

Sue was very helpful and easy to work with to make the reservation and work out any details. The location is ideal! Many other properties have an ocean view and are close to the beach but require crossing a busy street, this condo is actually on the beach! It was nice to sit on the balcony and watch the ships and the waves rolling in. Ample room for my husband and myself. We plan to bring our kids next time and stay longer. There is a nice pool area with a lazy river that we did not have time to use. The beach area has umbrellas and chairs for guests. Wonderful stay and will definitely return!

My husband and I and our 2 20-something sons were seeking a few easy days before returning to high stress mission positions. This property had absolutely stunning views with beautiful sunrises. The highlight though was the sweet staff of the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. During a busy few days of the holidays, the staff was stretched but always responded with a delightful spirit! The 2 rooms of this unit worked well for us along with the balcony. We also enjoyed the large ocean side veranda for most of our meals! I look forward to visiting again in the future.

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful unit for 2 nights following our cruise. We stayed @ this property in Dec 2010 but rented from the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. This unit is much NICER and cost LESS than the previous unit in which we stayed in. The beds were comfortable, we slept well. The furniture is upgraded and is comfortable. The rocking chairs on the balcony with a small table was used a lot by us as the weather was rainy/cloudy/windy and we played plenty of Phase 10 as we watched the surf. We also enjoyed our wine and snacks in the evening out there. The refrigerator, microwave/convection oven and TV's were the right size. We didn't rent a car while we were there. The water pressure was wonderful during our showers. We never needed cleaning service as there were enough towels (5 bath, 5 hand and 5 wash cloths) , toilet paper, tissues, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap and lotion for us. Even though if was cloudy, windy with a few rain drops we still used the pool and lazy river. We didn't go into the ocean as there was too much seaweed due to Mother Nature. The staff raked the beach and placed lounge chairs out for those who wanted to be on the beach. All staff treated us well and were friendly. We'll rent this unit again if cruising from Fort Lauderdale, that's if it's available. We just happened to stay when Fort Lauderdale was not blessed with its usual beautiful weather but we still enjoyed our stay.

We just returned for a few days of much needed R&R. This rental was perfect for our family of three, including my 13yr old son. We absolutely loved the view and the pool and beach areas were always fun spots to spend our day. There is plenty to see and do. We would definately consider staying there again if we return to the area.

We stayed in mid-November with our 2 young children and found plenty to do at the resort and nearby, including an Everglades boat tour and Butterfly World. We had a double stroller and high chair delivered to the resort and staff was very helpful getting it to our unit. The pool, lazy river and beachfront is well kept. The unit itself is wonderful. Very clean, spacious, with an amazing view. Was great to have a microwave and fridge for quick meal prep. We checked out the restaurant on site which was good, and the one at the hotel next door which we really enjoyed. We didn't pay the $35 per day cleaning fee & I was left wishing there was a small broom and dustpan to sweep up crumbs on the balcony (we had several meals out there with the boys), or a small vacuum. Other than that, we definitely enjoyed ourselves and would love to stay in this unit again! Will certainly recommend to friends.

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Pelican the first week in November! We have 2 little ones (5 and 7) and they thoroughly enjoyed every second. We had 2 very big decisions to make every day...Pool or beach, Beach or Pool AND what drink should we start the day off with. We only left the resort once and we drove down to the Hollywood Broardwalk. We had lunch at the Landshark Bar, and the kids did an impromptu ride on the Flow Rider that is right outside of Jimmy Buffet's new resort. When the owners indicate this is the best unit, they are totally not exaggerating. Its very clean, has a very homey feeling to it, and you open the balcony door, and you are right on the water! The owners were nothing but helpful from the get go and very quick to respond to any questions we had. The room was so great I have shared this link with about 5 people since I have returned from vacation. We would certainly stay here again!!

We stayed for just 5 nights. The unit was impeccable and the balcony view was beautiful. The owners were great to deal with and the hotel staff tended to our every question and need. We did not have a car so we were limited to where we could eat. The Pelican is on the pricey side but we expected that. There's a place directly next door, on the beach, very casual with great Bloody Mary's. The 11 bus runs directly in front of the Pelican and we took that one day ($1) to Las Olas Blvd. The trolley doesn't service the PG, and cabs are readily available. Great stay, beautiful condo, just as nice as depicted on the overview.

I just returned from my first visit to Fort Lauderdale and the Pelican Resort, and couldn't be more pleased with the experience. This particular room had some perks which are unique; a beautiful leather couch where I could put my feet up, a larger refrigerator (which we kept stocked), a nice large cabinet to store more goodies, and these incredibly comfortable chairs on the balcony (perfect for evening relaxation). We were there during the Super Moon Lunar eclipse, and viewing this on our balcony on a warm night made this a truly magical experience. Sue and Steve were always quick to respond to questions prior to the trip from whether there is an iron (there is), to whether there was a coffee maker (also in the room). The restaurant is wonderful (try the club sandwich for lunch) and offers patio dining. The beach is incredible, just down the elevator and out the door. There are loads of lounge chairs and the Pelican staff will do just about anything for you. (If you go, give Joe a shout from me. This kid works the beach nearly every day, setting up chairs and umbrellas, or moving them if the tide starts to come in, which it did). Pelican staff even came by when we were on the beach offering tasty samples of a fruit smoothie (delicious). There are lots of restaurants close by, either walking or a short cab ride. We did take a ride to Everglades Holiday Park, which is a great tour for those who new to Florida. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and I hope to return again.

My sister and I went down to visit our cousins and what a wonderful spot to reunite. We were so happy to see such an updated clean and spacious room with a beautiful view, both morning and evening. We were lucky enough to experience the excitement of the "blood moon" on Sunday evening and the four of us watched it from the comforts of our own balcony. Joe the pool boy was so accommodating each day we went to the beach. The hotel restaurant(s) were wonderful and the others in the area were also delectable. Have already recommended this place and have given Sue's contact information to a few friends already.

This unit is absolutely gorgeous! I'm so picky about cleanliness, but this place was immaculate. We loved our balcony overlooking the ocean with comfy rocking chairs. Having coffee and watching the sunrise from the porch was so relaxing. It rained a lot, but who cares, we had a covered porch! Bike rental close by was a plus. Sue was great at helping us prepare for our stay. We defiinitely plan on returning.

WOW - Sue and Steve were just so friendly and nice to work with. They were very quick to respond to emails! She even sent me a list of things to do in the area. Whatever questions I had, Sue was there to help, she even researched how far away the nearest grocery store was for me. (by the way isn't far) The room was the best place away from home I've EVER stayed in. Once you walked in the door, you felt relaxed and it was inviting, and CLEAN! I mean CLEAN ! I loved the sitting room with a leather couch and pull out bed. TWO big screen Tv's, which made it feel much like home. We rented the room for a girls weekend getaway... We had the room rented for 5 woman, and we never felt like we were too crowded. The Shower... WOW ! It had more water pressure than mine does at home. The bathroom was big and again CLEAN!. The mattress, seriously - I wanted to take it home with me, it was that great! The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The rocking chairs and a table for your drinks made it possible to sit out there for hours. Great location to everything! Nice dinning, nightlife, and shopping! We didn't rent a car, but had zero trouble finding a shuttle service or bus. The staff at the resort was very professional and fun to talk to. I would look no further, this room was AWESOME - and Sue and Steve were so pleasant to work with. You won't be disappointed. - EXCELLENT !! EXCELLENT !! EXCELLENT!!

After researching many choices, we decided to stay at Sue and Steve's property at the Pelican Grand and we are so glad we did. When we walked into the room, we immediately knew we made the right decision. The accommodations are ideal-perfect location, spacious, comfortable, fabulous view, and very clean. Sue and Steve were especially great - checking in with us, offering ideas of places to go and helpful tips. We would definitely choose to stay here again!

This unit is AMAZING. We were only planning on staying one night but upon entering the unit knew we would extend for another. Beautiful oceanfront room with suite/living room area. Clean, clean, clean with flat screen tv's and patio rockers for added comfort. Owner has been wonderful to deal with and has always answered the phone and keeps you in the loop with emailing property. We are local ( live 10 minutes away). Our experience with this owner/unit guarantees we will be back!

Very nice room - spacious dine-in family room! Nice beach and gentle waters in the morning and early afternoon. Pool is so so but hotel has an overall relaxing feel. Lacks walkability if you are seeking that, but otherwise a short drive or cab to many restaurants and amenities. Especially great for young families and the senior set.

This was our second stay at the Pelican Grand since we had enjoyed our first stay so much. The accomodations and the layout of the suite were perfect and the views were excellent. The staff is fantastic and very accomodating for any request we made. One of the things I like so much is that it is right on the beach without being in the high traffic area of Ft Lauderdale Beach but close enough just to drop in in just a few minutes. Highly recomend stying here.

My four kids and I enjoyed a long weekend at the Pelican Grand for a wedding. This unit was absolutely perfect! It is a beautiful room right in the front and center of the property. Everything about this particular room is convenient. Owners Sue and Steve have thought of everything you will need - from nice size fridge/microwave to bathing suit drying rack in the bathroom. The pull-out couch was great for my 7-year old to feel like he had his own room with a huge tv. The leather reclining sofa is a bonus, really comfy! The best part of this room are the rocking chairs on the oceanfront balcony. My family and I had front row seats to the wedding preparation below! I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to save money over renting through the property itself and still wants a luxurious room! Owner Sue also provided helpful tips (i.e. pizza delivery options) before our trip. Great condo, great owners, great experience!!

We stayed at the Pelican Grand Resort overnight after a cruise out of Miami. This resort is wonderful! The view from the room was breathtaking. The beds were amazingly comfortable. We liked having the living space with a pullout twin and a full couch. The service is top notch all around. The pool and lazy river were a lot of fun and so was the clear water at the resort beach. Wonderful stay we will be doing it again! Only downside was the laundry facility is coin operated, be sure to get some quarters!

What a great spot - you are close to everything but you don't feel like your are just in Fort Lauderdale. The ocean is literally outside your window and makes beautiful background noise for a peaceful and restful sleep. The pull out is uncomfortable but the leather couch next to it is not so I would suggest putting sheets on that one for the extra person unless they don't want to walk the next morning! The beach is phenomenal and servers coming to get drink orders as early as 10 am just adds to the high class resort atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone that wants a great get away.

The Pelican is a great place. Close to everything the city had to offer but when at the hotel - you are in your own little paradise. Wonderful view, the veranda was fantastic, great restaurant even though very pricy. A heated swimming pool that was actually heated to a very comfortable level. The apartment is as nice as it is described by the owner in the ad. Meaning really nice. Perfectly situated in the building. Very good condition and well equipped. The owner has also been very service minded and responsive. Thumbs up!

Steve and I (owners) arrived on January 7th for a 3 night stay before we met up with our kids and grandkids in Orlando. We decided that once every 5 years or so, we'd switch our annual family vacation to that area to enjoy the Disney experience. We will be back after Orlando, for a couple more weeks to stay out of the Iowa winter weather! As part of our annual "inspection" trip, we take a hard look at our unit to see what needs to be updated. All in all, everything looked great. We did decide to replace the 4 chairs we bought last year with 4 new chairs. (The ones selected last year just didn't do the room justice - too large and more like patio furniture.) We're very happy with the replacements. Smaller and fit in much better with the overall decor. We also ordered two new rocking chairs and a table for the balcony. All of the balconies at the Pelican still have the original plastic chairs/table. Our new ones are much more upscale and have great reviews from previous buyers. As always, our goal is to make this unit feel like a wonderful, comfy home. We love it here and suspect you will too!

My wife and i had a wonderful stay at the Pelican Grand Resort. The people who worked there are very courteous and always willing to help out with directions, arranging for taxi's or places to dine. The unit was very clean and neat, it has 2 queen size beds which was fine for us and the bed linens and pillows were of very good quality and it was nice to have a small living room to relax in. The couch has 2 built in recliners and love seat is a fold out bed. The unit comes with a small frig & microwave as well as a toaster. One thing I will say it that the room service food was actually very good, so it was a real plus for us when we decided we were too tired to go out after being at the boat show all day.

We had a wonderful time for a very short stay (3 nights)!! It was our 10th wedding anniversary ! We would recommend if you stay for more than 2 nights is buy some groceries and water on the way from the airport. We did not rent a car and as there is a small store on site but with a limited selection. The waitress service was great at the beach, pool and restaurants. The birds were slightly annoying at the pool so if you intend to snack poolside beware... I rented a SUP for $25 per hour and it was fantastic! With a quick lesson, I was off. Plenty of floats and toys at he beach and the towels and umbrellas thay they set up for you. A few of the lounge chairs were run down. The unit itself was perfect! We had a nice seating area with leather recliners and coffee table.

The Pelican Grand is a great place to relax and enjoy the best of Fort Lauderdale. Resort is right on the beach, no need to cross A1A like most of the hotels in the area. The Pelican is our home away from home, this particular condo is one of the better ones. Located on the 5th floor with spectacular oceanfront views. Condo was exactly as billed, even better I might add. We especially enjoyed the reclining sofa which is unique since most of the condo's maintain original furniture. Susan, the owner, was very accomondating and helpful, I look forward to renting again next year. There are great restaurants in the area for any budget. We ate at Casa D'Angelo a couple of nights, great Italian food. Checkout Las Olas Blvd, especially the pizzeria across from the Floridian Diner, great food and wine, good for lunch or dinner. The Hotel restaurant is also very good but a bit pricey, but you're on vacation so enjoy the view and food.

We were looking for a great relaxing getaway, with a view of the ocean (we were right on it!) and a nice place to stay. The owners were very responsive to our questions and the description of the property was right on. Clean, well maintained, had everything that we needed. Truly enjoyed staying at the resort, the staff was very attentive, the beach was great, wish I was sitting on the beach right now under the umbrella!

We recently enjoyed a terrific two week stint at the condo unit at the Pelican Grand. What an absolutely wonderful time. The unit is very nice and well maintained with an outstanding balcony view of the Atlantic. The beach and swimming was first rate. The personnel at the Pelican were very warm and helpful. We also liked the location as we were able to walk or have a short drive to many restaurants / shopping spots. Thanks for everything. We would strongly consider returning to this location. Best spot we have had since we started our annual trips to Florida four years ago.

We had a wonderful time and the weather was awesome, didn't even get to the Galleria because the sun never went in (that has never happened on a vacation before). Then home to an arctic front and I just can't seem to warm up!!! 512 was very nice and especially liked the new sofa recliner, it reminded us of home! Would love to keep in touch and would definitely visit again, let us know when next years calendar is available.

The hotel and the room were by far the very best around! Between the spotless and very comfortable room and the exceptional staff this was one of the best vacations we have taken. Everything was very clean and well maintained, the fridge and the microwave in the room was also an added bonus! We will definitely be back!!!

New Internet Charges for Privately Owned UnitsNo Rating

This is another post from owners, Sue and Steve... We wanted to make potential future guests aware of a change the Pelican Grand implemented on January 23, 2014 to all privately owned units (like ours). Effective immediately, the resort is beginning to charge a $19.95/day, PER device, Internet fee. I confirmed with the General Manager that there will no longer be free wired or WIFI available. While this fee seems high to us, we're told that it is competitive to other upscale resorts in the area and we have stayed in hotels that had a PER device charge. As an alternative, we suggest you could use the personal hotspot that is available on most smart phones as a more economical alternative to signing into the Pelican WIFI. To do this, go to ?settings? on your phone and turn on the ?hotspot? button. It should show you the name of your phone?s network and the password for you to use on your other devices to hook up. Then go to wireless connections on your laptop, IPAD, etc., select the name of your phone?s network and enter the password. You can use multiple devices at the same time on your hotspot network, i.e. I-pads and computers. Steve and I tried it out today and had 2 computers, 1 IPAD and 2 smart phones all using the same hotspot. While it was slightly slower than the hotel's WIFI, it was acceptable. PLEASE NOTE if you use this to watch movies or other high data uses, you will want to keep an eye on your service provider?s data limit. So, just a head's up, if you see privately owned Pelican Grand units offering free WIFI, they may not have learned of this policy change. The only reason we're aware is we are finishing up our family vacation at the resort. Back to Iowa and the cold tomorrow.

My folks are the owners of this unit, and this year they treated my husband, son, and I to an amazing vacation at the Pelican. We didn't actually stay in this owner's unit, but we visited it several times during our stay, and we have to say-- it's amazing! We've always loved our rooms at the Pelican, but this unit has been updated with new televisions, extra lighting, new bedding, unique photographic artwork, and new seating area furniture. It is very cozy and more comfortable than the standard rooms we have stayed in at the Pelican. The owners are SO friendly and helpful and have put much time and energy into making their unit a most enjoyable experience for you.

My family of four (two kids, ages 3 and 6) enjoyed our time at the Pelican Grand this January. My parents organized a family reunion at this resort, and it was truly a relaxed and worry-free time. Even though we rented a minivan for the week, we only went off-property a handful of times-- mainly for the large group family meals (Greek Islea was a fabulous lunch spot). My children were completely satisfied flitting between the lazy river, pool (which was heated nicely, much appreciated as this January was a bit on the chilly side), beach and ice cream shop. My family has some dietary restrictions, and I was happy to note that the ice cream shop stocks soy milk for making delicious lattes! We enjoyed the updates in our room (614), but have to admit that the comfy leather couch seating in 612 was far superior to the all-weather upholstery in the 'normal' rooms like ours. The unit was clean and the beds were so comfortable! My 6 year old admitted that she just wanted to "lie in bed and read" all morning, which gave my husband and I a few precious minutes to sleep in! I was also jealous of the extra drying space 612 has. They've added an extra towel rack, which would come in handy when one is juggling swimsuit drying logistics! They also have a bigger, brand new mini- fridge. As my family always hits Whole Foods for waters, fresh orange juice and lunch/breakfast fixings (along with all our gluten free and lactose free goodies), we were also jealous of their extra cubic inches of refrigeration. We love this property, the attentiveness of the staff and the casual but elegant surroundings.

Three week vacation in heaven... Since we bought unit #512 two and a half years ago, this is the third year for a January family vacation at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. The families, including us, come from Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin and Minnesota, so everyone was glad to get out of the freezing weather we've been experiencing. For the first time. all five of our kids (and their families/friends) were able to join us. This includes our three grandkids, ages 6,3 and 8 months. The kids were here for a week. This year Steve and I decided to stay for 3 weeks. Steve and I stayed in our unit and rented other rooms for each family (rooms also owned by private individuals). Everyone had a wonderful time! We ended up having a mix-up renting a room for one of the kids, so she, her husband and 2 children stayed in a room owned by the resort for 2 of the 7 nights. After seeing her resort-owned room and the other five rooms we rented from private owners, we are VERY proud to say that we think our unit is really the nicest at the resort. Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are: - Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both end. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.) - New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.) - Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit) - Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original one with a 4.2 cubic foot model) - Larger microwave (just replaced the original one with a high end convection model) - Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area) - More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs) - Plus, plus, plus more.... The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal. I'm going to be asking our kids to also post reviews on this site to share feedback on their vacations, so more to come....

We stayed at this rental for one night prior to departing on a cruise. It is a very very nice place that is part of excellent resort. The room is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The ocean view is amazing-- I don't think you could have a place closer to the ocean than this. The resort is upscale and family oriented in the quieter end of Fort Lauderdale. It's beach, while not very wide, was plenty big enough to accommodate all guests without feeling crowded. The sand and water were magnificent. There is a heated pool and small lazy river that is especially nice for younger children. The food at restaurant was, as you would expect, a little higher price than at a typical restaurant, but it was delicious and plentiful and you can't beat the view from the porch while you eat. The resort staff very exceptionally helpful. They stored our luggage and arranged our transportation to the port in a very pleasant manner. One thing we especially liked about this rental was how quiet it. Frequently, when we travel we are bothered by noise in the hotel. But here, the elevators are quiet, the room doors don't slam shut, you don't hear your neighbors and the a/c runs in consistent manner that is not annoying. Overall, it's a great place for a relaxing visit to the beach. We wanted to stay again after our cruise was over but the rental was not available so we had to stay at one of the major well known hotel chains on the beach and I can tell for the same price, this rental at the Pelican was superior in every regard. Sue made the rental process as simple as can be so the next time we are in Ft. Lauderdale we will definitely hope her place is available to rent again.

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort / Unit 512 was the perfect vacation spot. We've stayed at many hotels in Ft. Lauderdale and this location has to be our favorite. All staff were superior - beach, pool, front desk, valet, maid, bar, etc. It was so nice that there wasn't a daily charge for the lounges and umbrellas by the ocean. Check-in went so smoothly and the owners made the entire process so easy. Can't wait to return to this paradise!

The two of us couldn't have asked for anything better on our winter getaway! The staff at the Pelican Grand were friendly with each interaction. We really enjoyed the food, both at the lounge and on the veranda. Of course we were there for quality beach time and were not disappointed. We had no trouble getting chairs or towels. You can't get any closer to the beach. We spent an afternoon in the lazy river at the pool - unique and fun! We loved the fact that the room is beachfront: we had breakfast on the balcony and could hear the waves as we fell asleep. We had never been to Fort Lauderdale but found lots of fun things to do: Las Olas Boulevard and Lauderdale by the Sea both had fun restaurants, bars and shops. We were lucky enough to be in town for the annual Holiday Yacht Parade on the Intercoastal Waterway. We had great food at Greek Islands Taverna (ask for Flavio) and Aruba's (good seafood with a late-night party atmosphere). Of course my boyfriend loved the craft beers at American Social, and I found good drinks at 101 Ocean. We spent our last day at the Everglades Holiday Park. The airboat tours are highly recommended! We didn't rent a car but found it easy to get a taxi or the city bus to take us to dinner each night. The valet staff were helpful and hooked us up with the contracted van driver a few times as well. The room looked just like the pictures: clean and bright. The property and neighborhood were well-maintained and safe. The owner was easy to communicate with via email, she took care of all the arrangements so all we had to do was show up.

Unit: Liked that it overlooked the beach. Sat on the balcony many evenings listening to the waves. Handy to have a separate sitting area so that when the kids were in bed we could still be up. Convenient to have a fridge to store leftovers, etc. A drying rack for swimsuits and laundry would have been handy. Having internet and wifi was a great asset. Resort: Beautiful location, wonderful beach and facilities. Loved that everything was so close. Boys could go beach, pool, lazy river, eat, room, beach, pool, etc. all day! Was handy that they had pails and shovels the kids could use at the beach. We loved the surroundings and eating on the patio, however, we found the restaurant to be ridiculously priced. Went next door to eat quite a bit.

The view and sound of the ocean from the balcony was breathtaking, relaxing and healing. The food at the restaurant terrace downstairs on the beach was delicious. Imagine the most peaceful, relaxing setting for a delightful breakfast or lunch and that's the Grand. Thank you Sue for helping to make our 19th anniversary so terrific!

What a wonderful place to stay. Nothing beats going to sleep to the sounds of the surf and waking up to a gorgeous sunrise over the ocean. We loved the set up of the rooms. the bedroom has 2 comfy queen beds and the sitting room has a pull out love seat, which my friend said was quite comfortable. that room has a private balcony, where we say out in the evening with our wine. The staff are super friendly in the hotel and pool and surf-side. We loved the owner's recommendation of a greek restaurant: best lamb chops I've ever had. We used the shuttle service for both airport and local travel, because they were so very reliable, helpful and friendly. They are a little more expensive. Loved the water taxi and seeing all the amazing homes and yachts. We were a girls (um, middle aged) getaway group, but there were newly weds and families with small children also. Can't wait to return!

My husband and I stayed for a week, along with our 17 year old son. We had plenty of room, and the room and resort was exactly as pictured and described. The mini kitchen and toaster was adequate for breakfast and lunch in the room, although we did buy a foam cooler to keep extra ice and drinks in. The staff at the resort is great and everything is there for you. Pool and beach towels and umbrellas are provided, along with ice water. You can order food or drinks at the pool or beach if you'd like. There are washers and dryers on the 3rd floor, so we threw our swimsuits in there and washed them at the end of each day. Sue was wonderful to work with, and everything went smoothly from the time of rental to checkout. We would definitely stay there again!

The location on the beach couldn't be better and the upmarket restaurants & bars of Fort Lauderdale were within walking distance or a short cab ride if required. We were really disappointed when our two weeks came to an end! It was perfect & we'll definitely be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The room was a bit more spacious than I had envisioned (good), the bed was very comfortable at night and the new couch was comfortable during the day, WiFi enabled us to stream Netflix. I love ocean water, and was thrilled that the place is so close to the water that I could hear the waves as we looked down from the balcony. We visited the popular part of FLL down by Las Olas, and were so pleased that we were staying out of that hustle/bustle. We found nice restaurants about a mile north (33rd and Dine is a great French restaurant), and the bus worked fine for getting back (we walked to there because of the spotty bus schedule). The in-house restaurant was just fine for breakfast/lunch, but we went other places for dinner. We will definitely come back to stay at this place.

We stayed here for 4 days and nights on our Florida vacation and were extremely happy with the hotel, the room, it's location right on the beach and last but not least, the exceptional way we were pampered by the hotel staff. The fact that we were located right on the ocean and could literally just put on our bathing suits and walk out the door to the beach was quick and made our stay very relaxing. The staff provided us with lounge chairs, towels, an umbrella if we liked, would take a food or drink order from us and we never even had to leave the beach. Very courteous staff! Once we decided we better get off the beach before we got too much sun....we just headed up the ramp and floated around the lazy river for another hour of relaxation. We would definetely recommend this to others.

I was at the Pelican this past week for a family vacation with the owners of this unit, and it was one of the most pleasant stays I've had, ever. I was super impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff when we arrived. They were extremely fast and courteous. The atmosphere of the lobby area is luxurious and inviting. There is a corner area that has many books you can borrow for reading, as well as some games you can play in the lobby. The room was very clean and had a great view!! Also, I was really impressed with how comfortable the beds/pillows were. I didn't actually stay in the owner's unit this time, but visited it nearly every day. The owners have been updating the unit this week to make it even more cozy. In the living room suite of the room, the owners replaced a stiff (and rather ugly) loveseat sofabed with a gorgeous (and VERY comfy!) leather couch that has reclining seats on either end. They are also planning on recarpeting the unit very soon, and have been busy updating some of the accents in the room (lampshades, artwork). I never actually made it into the pool or Lazy River (the weather ended up cooling off quite a bit the days I had planned to swim), but it looked so welcoming. Just sitting beside the pool or on the beach was super relaxing, and the hotel staff were always there to bring a towel, set up a chair, or bring a drink. I didn't happen to eat at either of the two restaurants located in the hotel, but I did visit the gift shop/ice cream parlor for a couple treats. The pricing of the items in the shop was a little over the top (over $5 for one shot of espresso), but the service was pleasant and the ice cream was delicious. If you like Thai food, my hubby and I would recommend Thai to Go located just down the street. There's also a great, inexpensive sushi place at Broward and Federal Highway called Sushi One. Both places are best for take out, and then you can take your food and eat it in your cozy room or on the beach! :-) I would totally recommend the Pelican (and especially the this unit!) to anyone looking for a relaxing, tropical vacation. My stay there exceeded my expectations by quite a bit.

My husband, two children (ages 2 and 5) and I enjoyed a wonderful beach vacation this January. We were at the Pelican for a family trip with the owners of this unit. My children loved the lazy river (it was so warm! the perfect place to relax and swim on a windy day) and, of course, the beach. The pool and beach attendants were so friendly and accomodating. As a mom with two small kids, we were always searching for the shade in which to construct the perfect sand castle. They knew the perfect spot for any time of day! My five year old participated in the Funky Fish Day Camp for one day (the last one of our trip), and wished that she could have gone for several. The instructors were very friendly and focused on making sure everyone had a great time. They learned how to snorkel (the kids who were ready-- it was very relaxed, and if a child was not 'feeling it', they were given some alternative activity), tie-dyed t-shirts, did an arts & crafts activity and had some beach time. It was SO nice to be able to have this located right at the Pelican! There were many families who brought their kids from other resorts to participate in the program. The other aspect of the Pelican that we really enjoyed was the veranda. what a lovely place to play a game, have some ice cream or read a little Winnie the Pooh. Our kids go to bed fairly early, so on a few occasions my husband and I ordered room service for a 'real dinner'. I do have to say that of all the room service we've ordered (including cruising), the Pelican actually gives you the same food that you get when you order in their restaurant. It was never disappointing! *As a side-note: Both of our children are on a gluten-free diet, and while the kitchen wasn't exactly gluten-friendly, the staff and cooks did a great job working with us. They used the GF bread and rice pasta that we brought to ensure that our kiddos had all the grilled cheese and noodles they could eat (although they charged full-price for them. We expected that, but when you see a receipt for a meal that you basically already bought, it's always a bit disheartening). We found that Ft. Lauderdale in general isn't really labeled 'gluten-friendly', but there is always a fresh grilled fish and veggies on the menu. We utilized the mini-fridge to stock up on GF items from Whole Foods (as well as breakfast items- Fresh-sqeezed FL orange juice and oatmeal packets on our room's patio were a perfect way to start our day).

Recently my wife and I were invited to stay at the Pelican Grand for a family vacation by the owners of one of the units. I was so impressed with the Pelican from the moment we arrived to the day that we left. In my opinion I think the Pelican in the most beautiful resort in comparison to the other hotels in that area. I loved how it is right on the ocean, so you don't have to drive to get to the beach. Before we arrived I was concerned that the beach might be in bad condition due to the recent hurricane. However, the beach looked great! Our family had no problem laying out some beach chairs and soaking up the sun. I was also very happy with the staff who were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend the Pelican Grand to anyone who would like a comfortable, luxurious stay near the beach! My wife and I had a wonderful time.

I spent a week in beautiful Fort Lauderdale with my family at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. One of my family members owns unit #512 and suggested the resort as the site of our get together. It was fantastic! The resort is situated directly above a lovely stretch of beach that receives great sunlight in the morning and early evening. My girlfriend and I enjoyed peaceful walks along the groomed beaches almost every day. When we had enough of a sand and turf, we would head up to the pool and lazy river to catch some shade (and to wash some of the sand off!) The weather was fantastic during the middle of January- we had one dreary morning that cleared up by the afternoon. Even that had a silver lining- the rain seemed to wash up extra shells. The next morning we found some great conch shells and sea-washed beach glass! While we didn't eat at the hotel's restaurant, we did have dinner at the bar to catch part of a NFL playoff game. The atmosphere was relaxed, but by no means boring, and the bartender (an English gentleman named Paul) provided great service. Our meal was great. We also got cappuccinos and ice cream at the ice cream emporium, which was a fun treat. Locally, there are several restaurants in very close proximity to the hotel that we really enjoyed. The Sunbar grille is located next door to the north, and had a great appetizer and drink specials during happy hour from 5-7. Our service there was fantastic, and the waiters were especially friendly and helpful. About a mile north there is a Greek restaurant named Greek Islands Taverna that has phenomenal food- I could live off of their gyros and baklava. Finally, across the street from the Greek place there is a small bar named the 'Dive Bar' with a great collection of both friendly locals, cheap drink specials, and diving/maritime knick-knacks. I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough! My vacation deserved 6 (or more!) stars! Cheers, and I hope you enjoy Fort Lauderdale!

Steve and I (owners of unit #512 at the Pelican Grand) purchased our unit 18 months ago. Last January we did our first family vacation at the resort. We were lucky to have 2 of our 5 kids (and our 2 grandkids) join us and had a wonderful time! We just finished our second family vacation, with 4 of our 5 kids, 2 grandkids (and another on the way....). The week couldn't have been more perfect. Each of the families had their own rooms, but we spend a lot of time together on the beach, pool and lazy river. The service at the Pelican continues to be amazing. We had meals in both restaurants and ice cream/milkshakes in the coffee shop. We also had pizza delivered one night and enjoyed it outside on the veranda. Again, what a great week! I've asked the kids to post reviews to give their feedback on their vacations. Hopefully, you will see a few of them on here soon. Finally, wanted to give an update that we have done some improvements to our unit and plan to do even more. Although everything today is lovely and in good shape, our goal is to make sure future renters have the ultimate vacation experience.

My husband, our two teenagers and myself had a wonderful stay. We were there for a few days of r and r before leaving for our first Caribbean cruise. The suite was perfect for our needs. The beds were comfortable and the pillows and linen were also exceeded our expectations. The sitting room that included the second tv worked out very well for us and we appreciated the fridge and microwave. The balcony faces the ocean and to hear the ocean surf made the craziness of our world fade away. There isn't really too much that is close but we used cabs and buses and saved money due to the high cost of renting a car at Christmas time. There is a great Italian bakery at Oakland Blvd and the shopping centre isn't too far away. I have to say the beach is wonderful, it is groomed every morning and the service by the pool and the beach was terrific. My boys were even able to say they say a few movie stars! If we were in Fort Lauderdale, we would stay there again. Thanks Sue.

We absolutely loved suite 512 at the Pelican. We arrived without a car and managed just fine. The ocean was heavenly, the weather delightful and the surroundings explorable and lovely. We walked South to The Galleria Mall about 1/2 hr, another day further south past Sunrise Blvd to the strip where the bars and restaurants are and another day north through nice residential areas to an Italian bakery for lunch. The Pelican itself is clean, we'll maintained, and exactly as depicted in the photos. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the bar for dinner and in the restaurant had a fabulous dinner overlooking the ocean watching an electrical storm. When we have an opportunity to return to Fort Lauderdale we will definitely want to stay at #512 in the Pelican Grand Resort. Thanks Sue for all your suggestions and making the transactions and communications so pleasant and worry free.

My husband and two kids ( 18 and 12) spent 9 fantastic days at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. It was everything that we were hoping and more! The resort itself is so magnificent- beautiful and comfortable lobby, gorgeous veranda with couches and rocking chairs to soak in the breathtaking view, and very pretty spacious suites. The staff were all courteous and friendly. Anything we needed they were ready to help. The pool area was really nice. We always found chairs available and if it was a little busier that day, the staff was quickly there to make sure they would find a place for us. We of course, loved the lazt river. Its as much fun for us adults as it is for the kids! Most of all I must say, that dealing with Sue in booking this resort for our holiday was a pleasure. Not only did she answer all my questions ( and I had many), she responded to all my e-mails immediately and offered many tips to help make our stay a wonderful one. I felt so comfortable booking this resort through Sue and completely trusted in her. We were very impressed with every aspectof our holiday experience, and we truly look forward to returning one day soon.

My husband and I have visited the Pelican Grand several times and Sue's unit was by far the best room and view! It is located on the 5th floor right in the center of the building with a balcony directly on the ocean. We had a wonderful time and there was plenty of room when our daughter came and stayed a few nights. With the suite set up, you have two televisions and can have privacy in the living room area if people want to sleep in the other room. The staff at the Pelican Grand were also very friendly and we were able to enjoy all the amenities at the hotel with the exception of daily maid service. I am ready to book again for next year. Sue is wonderful to work with - very quick responses to all of our questions. I cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed our visit!

This was a wonderful stay. The room overlooking the ocean couldn't have been better. Being able to sit out on the patio and listen to the waves break along the shore. Perfect. The room was very quiet, and the beds were very very comfortable. The atmosphere and professionalism from the front desk to the bar to the restaurant was excellent. The food and drinks were very good and very reasonably priced. I ate there every day. No need for me to go anywhere else. I was settled. Having breakfast on their patio with the ocean right there in front of me, perfect. Having access to the ocean withouth having to cross the street made things very convenient. This was a great place to stay and I enjoyed myself immensely. I'd highly recommend it and yes I would return.

Love the location of the resort.....love the staff at this resort...DO NOT LOVE the amount of seaweed and trash that washes up each day on the shore of this resort! City of Ft Lauderdale did not clean shoreline of resort for 4 days (Sat-Sun-Mon-Tues). Seaweed mixed with bottles/trash/sanitary napkins/small pieces of dead fish sat on the shore front of resort. I personally called the City Of Ft Lauderdale and complained to Mayors Office on Monday and Tuesday...they came on Weds morning and cleaned up the mess. Not a good situation. Room was nice..but bathroom fan needs replacing (loud). Overall it was a nice stay but would not stay on this beach again unless the seaweed problem is addressed.

My Response
Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback. Unfortunately, while you were visiting it was also turtle nesting season in Fort Lauderdale. As a result, all resorts/hotels are federally prohibited from touching the beach (with a rake or anything else). It is all up to the city to perform turtle inspections and then, and only then, can the city come and clean the beach. The General Manager from the Pelican was up on the 11th floor today and agrees with your feedback. As far as he could see, north and south, the beach does not look great (not just at the Pelican Grand - all of the Fort Lauderdale beaches). In addition, this is the time of the year that seaweed is the worst and Fort Lauderdale has had winds blowing out of the east which make the situation even worse. Like you, the General Manager also has had recent conversations with the mayor's office, as well as Florida Fish and Wildlife. That being said, I'm glad you still enjoyed your vacation and could still give us a four star rating.

We had an awesome time in Ft. Lauderdale. This condo is lovely, it has a fifth floor balcony facing the ocean, and everything about the resort is clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Sitting in rocking chairs on the veranda with a tropical fruity drink during happy hour was heavenly! The resort is right on the beach therefore is a very convenient walk for families with children. The water in the ocean was calm and we spent hours in it! The staff at the resort are very helpful and efficient. Sue was very easy to book with and was kind enough to communicate a small change in the resort's procedures prior to our departure. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing, enjoyable beach vacation. This is the most wonderful place you can stay if you are traveling to Ft. Lauderdale.

Driving past so many other 4 and 5-star hotels situated across the street from the beach, we felt good that we were staying in this beautiful resort that was right on the beach. Particularly since we had our little grandkids with us, who by the way never wanted to leave the beach sand and the shallow waters. What a nice surprise to receive a warm friendly service from everyone- prevalent from the valet to the front desk to the beach attendants. It was a refreshing change from the poor attitude of the staff in the hotel where we stayed the night before. Since we arrived early, the front desk suggested that we register so that we can avail of the facility like the pool and the beach areas until they call us when the room is ready. The suite was pretty and clean with comfortable beds. We enjoyed the balcony with superb ocean views and sounds of the waves. We felt like we were still in our cruise ship balcony! Thank you Sue for giving our family a wonderful ending to our post cruise vacation! We'll definitely recommend the Pelican Grand and certainly your 5th floor unit. You're a terrific owner, happy to have done business with you!

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Fort Lauderdale and staying in this lovely unit in a gorgeous resort. Sue made the entire transaction very easy and also provided additional helpful information. Great communication. The unit itself as just as described with a fabulous oceanfront view. The staff at the resort was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. We had a great time and I highly recommend renting this unit, you'll be happy you did. I actually stayed in a different unit at the beginning of the week, also a 2 queen bed oceanfront. The difference with renting this unit was the great communication and helpful information provided by Sue, which I appreciated. Thank You.

So we were on 3rd floor last year and on this unit on 5th floor this year. It is right at the center of the hotel facing the ocean. we knew what to expect because we have been here before for a week. Everything was great just like our regular hotel room last year. The only thing that was not the same was the comforter set on the queen bed. It was a lot thinner but that worked fine for Florida weather too. I will probably come back again next year. The owners are great at responding to your requests very promptly. Call Sue if you have questions, she will be more than happy to answer all of them.

We just spent 2 weeks staying in this unit to visit family in Ft. Lauderdale as we live abroad in England. The place was perfect. Having visited a lot of times, i really enjoyed this location which is tucked away from the loud and lively end of the city. It is also great in that it is right on the beach and you don't have the road in between so you look straight out onto the ocean. There were dolphins and manatees outside on our first morning on the balcony. The room is perfect if you are travelling with children as the door that closes between the bedroom and tv room gives you the opportuntity to relax, read and watch tv while the kids are sleeping in the other room. Our children loved the lazy river and we all spent time chilling out there. The valets and staff were some of the most friendly and laid back I have ever met. We loved coming back after dinner each night and playing cards at the card table and sitting on the rocking chairs on the beautiful porch along the ocean. Would highly recommend if you don't mind having to get in the car to eat. The food at the hotel was OK and there is room service so you can enjoy the view from the balcony. We had a nice lunch there and the surf and turf special in the restaurant was good value but some of the other food was not great compared with some of the great restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale. We had some nice meals on Las Olas which isn't far away by car and has a great ambiance. You do really need to eat out for the most part as the room is not geared up for cooking other than basics in the microwave. Overall it was a great stay in a lovely place and we hope to return next year!

We expected the Pelican Grand Resort to be a really good place for us to stay at, but we did not expect to enjoy it so much that we decided that it will be the only place for us to stay at when we are in Fort Lauderdale! It all started with communicating with the owner of this unit, Sue, who is so personable and accomodating. And continues to all the personnel at the resort who are very friendly; from the valets, to the front desk to the pool and restaurant employees. The unit #512 is comfy and roomy with 2 queen beds and the sitting area with a nice chair and couch. The extra room makes it so much more enjoyable to be able to relax in a mini apartment compared to"just a hotel room". The terrace has an awesome view of the ocean and you can look north towards Palm Beach or south towards Miami. The unit was clean and well stocked with towels and even though we did not choose to have extra maid service during our 4 night stay there was plenty of soap, shampoo,etc. While there are no walkable eateries on A1A from the Pelican, it is a quick car ride to Commercial Blvd. or to Sunrise Blvd. to get some food or take in some nighlife. You are literally no more than a 3 -4 minute ride to great restaurants. I without hesitation would recommend a stay at this unit and resort to my closest friends and family. Thank you Sue for helping make our vacation so enjoyable.

We stayed here for 2 days in March and thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Pelican Grand. The unit was nice and clean an overlooked the ocean. The hotel is literally right on the beach, and the water is only steps away from the building. Free chairs and umbrellas are provided, while some other places charge over $15 just for an umbrella. We ate several lunches and breakfasts in the restaurant, and the food was wonderful. A little pricey, but worth it. Would definitely return.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Pelican Grand pre-cruise. The location is great, just north of the main Lauderdale beach strip, and unusually located right on the beach and not across from the beach. It's located at the beginning of a residential condo/private homes strip on the beach. The 5th floor location was the closest we've ever stayed to the actual beach/water since usually you stay back aways in towers. The unit was as described and appreciated the separate sitting room at night with kids where can close the door. The unit is well designed that a window (with blinds) separates the rooms so you can see the incredible view and not a wall. We sat on the balcony and watched the sunrise and sunset. The rocking chairs on the veranda was also unusual and very nice. The beach is actually very narrow in front of the hotel, very steep angle and disappears almost completely at high tide so not the wide and flat beach you may expect in the Lauderdale area but it is wider north and south of the hotel. The kids loved the lazy river but passed on the main pool since even though it was in the mid 80's outside it was absolutely freezing in the pool and no-one was in it. The lazy river appeared to be heated. The downsides to the stay were that there isn't really anything within walking distance of the hotel and without a car pre-cruise, we didn't want to take cab rides with tired young kids and car seats so we ate at the one restaurant there. We found it to be extremely over-priced and delivered poor value with just average food - it felt like cafeteria food at five star prices. $9 for buttered pasta with a drink, and no desert as a "kids meal" is just a little high. For anyone with a car, or those willing to taxi, I'd strongly encourage you to eat elsewhere. This didn't detract too much from our stay though but we couldn't wait to eat elsewhere. The staff were all very attentive and professional. They did not have our room ready yet even though we were well past the check-in time but offered us two free drinks to enjoy while we waited.

We recently had the opportunity to spend a fantastic spring break at the Pelican Grand with our three young children. The resort was exactly what we were looking for. Our children loved spending the early mornings on the beach, the afternoons in the pool and the lazy river and the evenings eating ice cream and watching the waves come in. The unit, itself, was perfect with it's beautiful view of the ocean and the separate sleeping area allowing mom and dad to enjoy some R&R after the children went to sleep. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

This unit at the outstanding Pelican Grand was just as I hoped it would be. The hotel itself was in a great location...even better than I had hoped. And yes, there was really NOTHING between you and the beach! Amazing! The lazy river was a huge hit with both my husband and I and our three kids! The onsite resturant not only was beautiful, and served delicious food, but was able to help cater to our severly food allergic child! What a bonus! That doesn't happen very often, but when it does... it really makes my day! The unit was clean and the view was to die for! Everything in this listing was portrayed extermely accurately, and Sue was wonderful in helping us reserve our stay. We loved hanging out at the pool in the morning, enjoying lunch "oceanside" at the resturant and then seeing some of Fort Lauderdale and Miami in the afternoon. I would highly recommend this hotel to ANYONE who was going to the Fort Lauderdale area. The only "negatives" we experienced were that our room was ready late..but in the hotel's defense they were 100% booked that evening and did some extra cleaning for us due to the allergies my child suffers from. So I was totally okay with this. Even still, they were extremely apologetic and even comped our parking for the stay!!! Above and Beyond! Also, a few times we could hear noise in the hallways, and from the busy streets below...but again that is expected with an "open hallway" layout. Nothing that would keep me from returning! Thanks for a great vacation! Alicia and Family!

We stayed at Sue's unit at the Pelican Grand for 5 days before our cruise. What a beautiful resort! The unit was clean and had an amazing view of the ocean and the beach. We spent every day relaxing on the beach and enjoyed the complimentary chairs and towels. Staff at the resort is very friendly and helpful. We didn't have a car but since the purpose of our trip was to relax, this was the perfect place to do it. There isn't much within walking distance so plan to take a cab to restaurants or grocery store if you don't have a car. This is still cheaper than the $24 a day they charge to park your car at the resort. The unit doesn't have a kitchen but we planned our breakfasts and lunches around things that didn't need cooking and we used disposable plates and cutlery. We also bought prepared foods at the grocery store that we could heat in the microwave. We did have a couple of meals in the on-site restaurants but we found that it would be too costly if you choose to eat all your meals there. Because we rented from an owner, there was no daily cleaning or replenishing of towels but because we were only there a few days, we managed OK. If we stay longer next time, we will definitely pay for cleaning service when we need it. My daughter and her family were coming on the cruise with us and they joined us in the unit for 2 nights. My granddaughters loved the beach, the pool and the lazy river. Sue, the owner of the unit, is so helpful and always responded to my phone calls and e-mails right away. We will definitely recommend this unit to others and we are hoping to return as well.

Our stay was wonderful. The room was just as described. Direct ocean front with a beautiful view. The staff at Pelican Grand were great as well. They were friendly and helpful in every way. Absolutely no complaints. I would certainly recommend the property to anyone wanting a relaxing stay at the beach.

What a great rental for any couple travelling with children. The room set-up is perfect with separate rooms for bedroom and living room. We could put our son to bed, close the door and enjoy either the balcony with amazing views or living room with tv without bothering a sleeping baby. The pool, with zero entry and lazy river is perfect for kids of all ages, and each restaurant has a kids menu. My only complaint is that the hotel isn't in walking distance of other places to eat, so unless you have a car or can take taxis, you will be spending a lot of time at the hotel restaurants, which do run a bit on the expensive side. All that being said, I would stay in this wonderful place again for the view alone!

We loved it, the room had plenty of space and a beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean. The staff at the Pelican were amazing and make you feel so welcome from the front desk, to the bellman, to the pool and restaurants. Also, the pool and lazt river are nicely heated. We will be back!

I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing stay in Sue's suite! It was beautiful and exactly how it had been described, with that fantastic view of the ocean (I already miss it!). It was very clean, neat, and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and have already mentioned this place to several of my friends. From her initial reply to my first Email of inquiry to the end of my stay, it was a delight to deal with Sue. She answered any questions that I had and was always willing to respond to any concerns, in addition to always being pleasant. Many thanks, Sue!

We were fortunate to stay at the Pelican after a 10 day cruise ending in Fort Lauderdale. There is nothing bad you can say about the place from the room to the location to the restaurant on site. The staff is courteous and helpful and thee is very little you can want for. The location on the beach is excellent. While we were staying there we were fortunate enough to have a full moon and it just created the most unbelievable atmosphere, particularly at night while eating dinner on the deck. In addition they owners we dealt with were the best in terms of responsiveness. I would recommend the Pelican to anybody in a flash.

Can't say enough good things about our stay at the Pelican resort in Florida. We were there from 11-5 thru 11-12. Can't get any closer to the ocean. We have been to many Caribbean islands and this is by far the best view we ever had. The waves were like Hawaii. The service was excellent. If you can get an ocean front room, do it. The bed room and the separate sitting area were spacious. The food and atmosphere were great. Nothing but good about everything. The arrangements by Sue were as efficient as one could get. You can't bat the price any place. Lot's to do close by. Thanks again Sue for a great week!

I am so happy that I chose to stay in Sue's unit. Everything was wonderful. The bed was super comfy. Also the shower was fantastic. We did not have any negative experiences with the owner or the resort itself. The resort is a bit out of the way so you will want a car. Also parking is a little pricy but if you have vacationed in any major city lately you would expect that. Sue was upfront about the parking costs so there we no "hidden" charges or surprises. You couldn't ask for a better experience!

I just can not say enough good things about this property!!! The staff really cared about the quality of our stay and totally exceeded our expectations. There are not many nice resorts in Ft. Lauderdale that sit right on the beach (most have a breezeway across a 5 lane highway) but we were just 60 seconds from room to beach! The pool and lazy river were our favorite. We spent hours floating and sunning. The Ocean Grille Restraunt in the lobby is definately 5 star excellence. We traveled from Knoxville, TN for our honeymoon, and we will celebrate our anniversary there for many years to come! Thank you SUE!!!

We stayed at the Pelican Grand for 3 nights for a graduation in Ft. Lauderdale and had a great time. It was me, my husband, and our 4 year old son. We wanted to stay at the Pelican Grand because of its proximity to the ocean and the child friendly amenities such as the lazy river and ice cream shop. The owners of this unit offered the best price by far and the room was clean and comfortable.

We decided to book a last minute vacation and didn't want to spend a fortune. Our biggest requirement was to find a place that has a pool and is right on the beach, because my older daughter has cerebral palsy and can only walk with hands held (so limited distances). Pelican Grand seemed to fit the bill. We knew in choosing this property that we'd have to deal with the inconveniences associated with staying at any hotel on any beach, meaning no in-room kitchen and no laundry other than the pay-per-load guest laundry. We were prepared for the daily valet charge and we knew we'd pay for housekeeping services at least once. So, there were really no negative surprises when we arrived at Pelican Grand. Staff were friendly and check in was easy. The room was exactly as described, very comfortable and clean (though we were a bit surprised that only one roll of toilet paper was provided for the entire week so we went out and bought our own). The resort provided a complimentary "mini" crib with crib sheet which I was able to fit right next to the bed, though I did bring my own sheets. The mini fridge was larger than I expected, so we were able to keep snacks and sandwich items on hand and didn't need to eat out for every meal. The best part was in relation to the amenities: my disabled daughter could easily access the zero entry pool and the lazy river. We also had no problem with the few steps leading to the beach, though we noted that there is a ramp off the pool for those who are unable to negotiate stairs (a bit of a difficult area to negotiate onto the beach at the bottom of the ramp, though). The young man working at the beach was extremely friendly and helpful, immediately setting up chairs and beach umbrellas to keep us shaded. The pool was a bit cold for our infant but our older daughter didn't seem to mind, and the lazy river was a definite hit--not to mention the warm, beautiful ocean! We really enjoyed the Sunday brunch, and it was nice sitting out on the deck in the mornings for breakfast. Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Grand and we'd stay here again for trips lasting 3-4 days (longer trips and I've got to have my own kitchen and laundry, especially with kids! :)

We have stayed at the hotel before so we knew what to expect. Your place has a great view, is very clean and all was great! The weather was perfect, it rained 1 hour one afternoon at 3 and 5 minutes another. We went there for relaxation and literally got to the beach at 8:30 am and stayed there till 4pm. The kids bounced back and forth from the beach to the pool. We saw jelly fish in the water some of the time but they didn't bother us. A manatee swam past the resort less than a football field from the beach. We opted not to swim out and touch it but some did. We also swam with the little silver/gray/yellow backed fish that hang out in the water. It was a great time. The staff at the resort are extremely friendly. I highly recommend the Greek Islands (go there every time we are in the area) and Bravo restaurants. We also went to the Hard Rock casino and ate at the Hard Rock. If you have never been to the casino area, you have got to check out the shops and restaurants. We have been there probably 5 times over the past 6 years. Also the pier in Lauderdale-by-the-sea is a nice place to walk around at night.

Some girlfriends of mine and I stayed here for a few days in August 2011 and loved every minute of it!! The resort is very close to great shopping/restaurants which we visited often. The room was wonderful with a separte living room area, and the beds were extremely comfortable! The direct ocean view was so beautiful that we propped the balcony door open everynight just to hear/see the waves. Spacious room, clean and secure. We loved going right downstairs to have breakfast on the veranda every morning. Definitely enjoyed the lazy river. Staff was friendly. Very short walk to the beach which we loved. Room service was reasonably priced. Only piece of advice I would give is bring extra towels because there is an extra daily charge for replenishing towels to the room since it is a condo rental. Had no problems renting from the owners. Smooth rental process altogether. I can't wait to go back!!! So sad it's over!

The place was just spectacular. We couldn't have been any closer to the beach lol. Enjoying sitting on veranda or steps that go down to the beach each morning and evening. The staff was courteous, very helpful, and went way beyond to make sure our stay was fantastic. We didn't want to pay for the valet parking but we loved it. It was so nice to drive up give them the key. I have stayed at many places,this was the best service. The location was terrific for easy access to 95. Plus when you go you have to find the bakery THAT TAKES THE CAKE. The best cupcakes I have ever had. Try the chocolate and the red velvet. I had read about it online and it was Oprah Winfreys favorite for her 2004 list...Definitely worth the drive. P K Chang for chinese was fabulous too. All in all, we had a wonderful time and just a fabulous place. Will definately be back again.

First, Sue is fantastic. She went out of her way to make us feel welcomed, made sure everything was right from check-in to check-out. Truly felt she wanted us to be happy in her unit. The property is beautiful. Like another world almost. Loved the veranda in back, the rockers, the pool and ocean both just steps away. Enjoyed eating and drinking outside on the veranda. The unit itself was just as pictured. Very comfortable. Great view of ocean from terrace. The staff from the check-in people to the wait staff, all very nice. We had a wonderful time and appreciated Sue's caring.

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. The condo was clean, the views were amazing. The pool was great & lazy river. When I called Sue the owner told us the pull out was in need of replacing but our teenager thought it was just fine. She offered a solution but we didn't need to do it. We also asked her about transportation and parasailing and right away she gave us information or prices with names to places. This was a very relaxing vacation for our family and fun. We loved the dinner on site..just awesome, we enjoyed icecream and we also went into town and walked around. What made it all worth it was the affordability, THANKYOU!
