Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

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.

*******************************************************************

About Sue Morrison

We are a retired couple from Iowa who miss the ocean. When we first saw the Pelican Grand, we fell in love and knew we wanted to spend more time there.

Sue Morrison purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sue Morrison chose Fort Lauderdale

The view!!! Being able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking out over the ocean. Enjoying a cocktail on the private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Short car ride to many fantastic restaurants, night clubs and shopping areas.

Close to cruise terminals of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a delightful time in room #512! The view was awesome and the accommodations were just right for our family at this time. Unfortunately our flight on 12/25 was canceled and we did not arrive until the afternoon of the 26th. We had planned to explore a bit more but instead stayed mostly at the resort.



We have never traveled before during the Christmas holiday. The hotel seemed to be a bit understaffed but we never had to wait for a table or food. The challenge seemed more to be around the towel situation at the pool and beach as well as accommodating stressed visitors with enough beach due to higher than usual high tides! In the midst of it all, the staff was unbelievably kind and pleasant!



I will sign up to your Facebook page and look forward to another opportunity to visit Ft. Lauderdale again!



Happy New Year!

Perfect unit for family w preschoolers

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two preschoolers and this was the perfect unit for us. First of all, the suite is very spacious. Our two girls camped out in the living room area and made that their room all week. One slept on the twin pull-out and the other slept on the couch, or some nights, on the floor in a homemade tent. It gave mom and dad privacy in the main room where we could read or watch our own shows. We spent a lot of time on the deck with the rocking chairs watching the rain. What's great about the resort is the beach is right.there. No having to cross the street and the beach entry pool was great for our littles who cannot swim yet. The unit has a larger than dorm-size fridge where we kept a lot of groceries and plenty of room to keep dry good snack items too. Having a toaster was very handy too.

Since we are always on-the-go at home, we truly rested on this trip and ate a lot of meals in our room. There is a small table where four can eat dinner comfortably. Well done to the owners who really thought of their guests by keeping the unit clean and modern with plenty of extra amenities. It truly is the best unit in the resort!

My favourite place

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay at the Pelican, but our first at Sue's unit, and it is a better one: renewed, bigger fridge, microwave. But the Pelican is as phantastic as always. Great helpfull staff: Alessandro at the front desk is a "ten" person,. The chairs and umbrellas' at the private beach are awesome, the galleria and the rocking chairs, the beautiful hall...well, everything is just perfect. My husband and myself are sorry to leave,but we hope on returning back next year.

Sue is very professional hostess and she extendedour checking out a couple of hours, very generous. I will recomend this rental to anyone willing to have a marvellous vacation al Ft Lauderdale, is definetely our home away from home.

Beautiful property with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for 8 nights and it was fabulous! The view was incredible and there was something for everyone. Our children loved the pool, lazy river and ocean. My husband and I loved the convenience of not having to haul chairs, umbrellas and towels to the pool or beach. It was truly relaxing! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful view,nice spacious room,very clean ,very nice hotel staff!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time! Next time we'll stay longer than 4 nights.We didn't realize it was valet parking the whole time we stayed...that was very nice,felt pampered and all the valet guys were very gracious and polite.On our last morning walking the beach we saw a tiny sea turtle crawling on the sand and making it to the ocean!!! We had dinner at the bar area and breakfast at the resort and the food was very good! Sat outside watching the waves...so pretty ! We went to Fort Mac Auther State Park 1 hour north in North Palm Beach.We snorkeled right off the beach, it was a little to wavey so we didn't see much,but the park is really tropical,lush vegitation,beach was old Florida...no hotels or anything .Really nice private ,peaceful. Thankyou for letting us stay at your beautiful condo! We had FUN! Jean

Very nice resort, directly on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful resort with great beach access. Suite was perfect size for 4 adults with 2 oversized beds and pullout sofa bed. Cozy but nice. A few more towels would have been a plus. Oversized mini fridge was perfect for in room breakfast/lunch with room for leftovers. Microwave/convection oven and toaster also included. Cooler for the beach. Resort Food and drinks were excellent. Beach chairs/umbrellas/sports are included with the rental and made the stay. The pool was smaller but lazy river was nice. Staff was very accomadating. My only compliant is lack of knowledge regarding surrounding area by some resort personnel. Woman at the front desk repeatedly sent us way out of our way for simple things like package of bottled water/toiletries/alcohol/shopping etc. Resort location is decent but not much walkable given the heat, everything was a $5-10 uber ride. Coconuts and Kelly's Landing were both excellent off resort dining options.

Great unit in a great resort

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend in unit 512 in this resort. The view of the beach, the sounds of the waves, and the view of the sunrise from the balcony was beautiful. The Resort staff was very friendly and professional and everything is well maintaned. Had a delicious dinner as well in the restaurant Ocean 2000 on the resort. Will definitely plan another trip back and stay in this unit. Everything from the moment of check-in was wonderful.
