About Mike Reece

Im a native Floridian whom grew up and has lived in the Ft.Lauderdale area all of my life.

Mike Reece purchased this hotel in 2012

Why Mike Reece chose Downtown

This is the only Resort directly on Ft.Lauderdale Beach. Many others are across busy A1A and do not provide the quaint luxurious atmosphere the Pelican Grand provides.

What makes this hotel unique

This is the only Resort directly on Ft.Lauderdale Beach with open balconies to the ocean.

The Pelican also has the only zero-entry pool and private lazy river in all of Ft.Lauderdale. In addition an upscale restaurant and Hotel Bar make it the perfect destination for both out of town and locals guests to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike,

We absolutely loved your condo and the Pelican Grand. The unit was spotless and the staff was exceptional. We only left the property one night for dinner at Coconuts (which was also fabulous) but the remainder of our meals were right on property. No complaints and we hope to come back someday. Take care and thanks again.


P.S. You were so right about the weather was perfect. Only problem is we are going home to SNOW!

Comfortable beds. Perfect for a family. Awesome views for balcony.

  • 5 of 5

The beach is just fabulous! Chairs umbrellas and towels included. The sunrise each morning from the balcony is stunning. Hotel staff very nice and helpful. The pool, is warm, but a little bit dated. My kids loved the lazy river! Check out the view from the top floor, wish I had known about it earlier but glad to have discovered it on the last day.

Microwave and fridge allowed for just what we needed - to heat up left overs and have some simple groceries like pb & j and cereal in the mornings. This location isn’t really walking distance to many restaurants so we had to drive.... but the serenity and never crowded beach is worth it. Parking for 30/day and tipping valet several times a day adds up... we may consider just using Uber next time. Overall a great spot - big TVs, free internet, and being steps away from the beach. Very happy wih it and hope to be back!

Great 4 Night Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Most of the positives have been highlighted in previous reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unit. The Pelican is directly on the beach so no crossing the street like so many Fort Lauderdale locations.

Pre-stay Mike had been very responsive to any questions we had. Unit was fantastic and large where we did not suffer from normal hotel room claustrophobia. Great oceanfront view from balcony. Yes Ocean2000 restaurant in hotel is expensive but worth it at least for one evening and breakfast to sit out and view the beautiful ocean. Go next door to the Sandbar Grille for a less expensive option for a lunch or breakfast with nice happy hour and daily specials if you want to have some variety. Found the food was better at Ocean 2000. Small shop in Pelican for incidentals, snacks, etc. Bar in Pelican was good for happy hour. We uber'd to other close by dinner locations for variety. Most of the time just 5-8 dollars a trip each way. The hotel did have a shuttle which they said had a cost but we just did uber for convenience, same to port for our cruise.

Only suggestion I would have is to not get there for an early checkin. With a hotel you may have different room options where you might check in early. But with a specific room you may have to wait as we did and not get in until checkin time of 4PM, we actually had to wait a few minutes past 4 until it was cleaned. They did say hotel was exceptionally busy at that time.

A great stay, beautiful location and room and certainly would book again for any future stays in Fort Lauderdale.
