Overview

Fort Lauderdale Hotel Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom (2 Queen Size Beds), 1 Full Bath, Large Separate Sitting Area Slps 5

Arguably, the best Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

If you truly want to stay at the nicest place on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, then you must seriously consider staying at this resort. You won't find similar rates to a discount motel, but if you really want to spoil yourself with a great unit when visiting the beach in Fort Lauderdale, then you should strongly consider staying at this grand beach resort.

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is located directly on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

This is one of the few properties in Fort Lauderdale that is located directly on the sand with the Atlantic Ocean only a few short steps away. This is a privately owned unit and it is located on the 9th floor of an 11 story building with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean from it's private balcony. Since this unit is privately owned we can offer very competitive rates.

This is a spacious ocean front suite with 2 Queen Size Beds and a separate living area to sleep 5. The restaurant and bar on the first floor are great places for fine dining, and the large spacious area on the veranda make it a great place to sit on the rocking chairs and watch the surf crash on beach. Even with all these great amenities most of your time will be spent touring the beach, sipping a frozen cocktail or relaxing near the lazy pool.

Not all units at the resort are the same location or quality. This is a Queen Size Suite and is one of the more premiere units at the resort. This unit is larger than most units, is located on the 9th Floor, and has a direct ocean front unit with a private balcony.

Be sure to check out the reviews from other guests and hopefully, they can give you even more thoughts on your stay at this great location.

Here are other important items to note:

1. We use the Online - HomeAway Reservation Manager for all of our bookings, so our Calendar is always up to date and it's very easy to book a vacation with us.

2. We do our entire booking online using the Reservation Manager and it's one of the smoothest quickest ways to rent a vacation property with a major credit card.

3. Our rates are competitive, but if you are looking for a deep discount this is not a 'low end' resort, so you may want to consider other options.

4. You work hard all year long. When you go on vacation, make sure you stay in a nice place on the beach with an unforgettable view of the Atlantic Ocean from your private balcony.

We hope to see you on vacation at this great ocean front resort in Fort Lauderdale, FL and be sure to request a quote for the dates you would like to travel.

Have a great vacation and make it memorable, not just adequate.

About Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit

Local residents of Florida who love the ocean.

Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit purchased this hotel in 2007

Why Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit chose Fort Lauderdale

Great resort, and you simply can't get any closer to the ocean.

What makes this hotel unique

One of the very few properties in Fort Lauderdale that is located right on the sand. For all the others you must cross A1A to visit the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The experience could not have been better.



Everyone was extremely pleasant and room was great. We ate dinner in the bar last night and the food was excellent. Got up this morning and walked on the beach, had coffee on veranda and watched a dolphin.



What a great stay at a great resort. We will definitely be back very soon.

Beautiful Resort - Great Oceanfront Location

  • 4 of 5
This is our second visit to Pelican Grand beach Resort and second time renting this unit. We had the same expectations as we did in 2013 not seeing anything different on the owner's site. There are a few changes to the in-room amenities that were not noted. You are now charged $19.95 per day per device that you connect to the internet because you are in an owner's suite vs. a hotel suite where internet is free. There is no soap or shampoo provided as there was last year. According to the hotel, this amenity stopped as of Feb 2014. It was just enough to get you through the first day or two, but something should be noted so renters are aware. Also we were not able to view in-room movies or access the hotel restaurant and in-room dining menus on the television, again because we not renting directly from the hotel. These issues are minor, however when you have the same expectations from the year before you are a bit disappointed and the $19.95 internet charge was not something had planned on.
The Pelican is a lovely resort and service is top-notch. You do not pay a resort fee so that can somewhat offset the internet charge. There is some construction going on at the hotel through Jan 2015 and it was loud at times while you were sitting on the beach. All and all, still a good value - just be aware of some of the in-room amenities that you do not have. The room was clean and plenty of towels are provided. The ocean front view and sunrises are amazing.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. Occasionally, the resort does provide soap and shampoo when you ask, but it's a minor amenity that they recently stopped providing. There is no resort charge so that saves travelers at least $15/day, and even with the wi-fi charges, the discounted rates on this unit have always been a great value for many travelers.

Thanks for pointing out these items to future travelers, and we look forward to your future stays at the Pelican.

Best kept secret of Ft. Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5
After booking this resort I kept telling myself it was too good to be true. However everyday I couldn't find a reason to discredit this resort/suite. I planned this trip mothers day weekend with my mom and two sisters. Since I got such a great deal on the resort renting a car and paying for valet was no big deal. The room was spacious with two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. Plus a microwave and frig. Perfect for the 4 of us.

I read reviews on other private owner and people complained about not having towels, tissue and soap. Not the case for this suite. We had everything we needed. However if you wanted more or housekeeping that was extra. We all came prepared with extra towels and soap. So no complaints here.

The resort staff was very friendly and professional, always willing to help or offer suggestions. The beach...OMG! The most relaxing and beautiful views. This particular room was a ocean view suite. I recommend renting a car if you stay here because there really wasn't anything within walking distance. But food, bars and shopping was just a 5 to 10 minute drive. If you don't have a car then your forced to buy all the over priced items in the resort.

If I had to find something wrong with the suite it would be the slow drain in the tub and sink. This was easily resolved when my mom notice a bunch sand and hair and pulled it right out.

We were so satisfied with our stay that we are already considering dates for next year.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Pelican.
The property is just as pictured.
I called and spoke with the owner and he give me a bit more detail about the unit.
I also called the hotel to confirm they had our reservation.
We had to call maintenance for a slow sink drain but the repairman was there within minutes to fix it.
Was very nice having beach chairs, umbrellas and towels as well as pool towels and chairs and the pool was very warm. Parking was expensive ($30/night) as well as internet ($19/night) but overall, the room rate was lower than if we had rented direct from the hotel. Beach was very nice and sand was cleaned daily.
We enjoyed a snorkeling cruise and a day trip to Miami. Staff was nice. Food was expensive. No places to eat withing walking distance but we found a lot of places within a 5 minute drive.
We are already talking about returning again next year.

Vacation from Cold Midwest

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this condo and it was great. The space is as shown in the photos with the sitting room between the bedroom and the balcony. The condo is in a hotel, so you get all the hotel amenities including free beach chairs, towels, and umbrella. And food and beverage service on the beach. The hotel service and staff were top notch--everyone was very friendly. The hotel has a great restaurant. Other restaurants are about a mile away to the north or south--a fairly easy walk. We would recommend this condo for a great getaway.

February Break

  • 4 of 5
Our stay at the Pelican Grand was very nice. The hotel is wonderful! The staff and food was amazing. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The beach was wonderful. However, I rented my room directly from the owner. I was not happy with the owner or whoever manages unit. I did try to have someone come and repair drain in sink and fix the fan. I was told that the hotel does not make repairs in owners room. The hotel said they emailed the manager of the unit. I also left a message at one number and tried to reach the manager in charge and the number was disconnected. I never received a return call. If I decide to go back I will not rent from owner. I will rent a room from the hotel directly. I loved the location and hotel.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing this review. Since this have never happened since we started renting this unit in 2012, we knew something was very very peculiar about your experience.

After communicating with the traveler, the resort, and a customer service rep from Home Away - we discovered that you were dealing with an unrelated 3rd party in connection with your experience.

There is a property manager by the name of Angelo G that manages other units at this resort, but he is not affiliated with this unit at any time in any way

Somehow you were mis-informed to deal with him, but he has no connection or affiliation to this unit and we regret that you did not contact us directly from the information posted on this listing.

We are very happy to learn that you enjoyed your stay, but please be sure to use our phone number and email listed on this property to ensure that you are communicating directly with the owners for this unit. Otherwise, your experience may be less than captivating and we will never know.

Thanks again for sharing the review, and all travelers are highly encouraged to communicate with us directly by using the published information on this listing for home away.

Happy travels......
