About the property

1 Bedroom (2 Queen Size Beds), 1 Full Bath, Lg Separate Sitting Area Slps4+1

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. It's a great opportunity to spoil yourself, and truly experience this grand ocean front resort with lots of great amenities.

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 offer very competitive rates.

Spacious ocean front suite with 2 Queen Size Beds and a separate living area to sleep 4 Adults and 1 child. 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 the 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.

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.

3. Our rates are very competitive for this type of a resort.

4. You work hard all year long, so 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.

5. Requirements to Rent - Must be at least 25 years old, and present valid ID along with a major credit card when checking in at the resort. No exceptions.

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 another trip.

About Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit

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.

Love this resort it's our 3rd time here

  • 4 of 5

Love the space in the suite and the balcony on the ocean the location of the property is great

I do think that the whole property needs a make over its beginning to look "tired"

But even if it stays this way we will keep coming back

Thank you for a great week to the friendly staff

Very old rundown unit with bad odor.

  • 1 of 5

I stayed at this resort 4 years ago, and we actually had a great time. Unfortunately, this time is completely the opposite. The unit was rundowm and nothing work (from the door locks to the stained carpeting). The unit had a very bad odor. We actually went to the stor and purchased candles to cover the smell. We paid the extra fee to have the unit cleaned everyday, but they forgot to clean our unit several days during our 10 day stay. The hotel service was very poor this time. We were told that the management has changed from the last time we were there. That explained the decline on services and quality. The room has 20+ years huge tv with a very poor reception. The internet connection is a complete joke. The gym is the size of a bedroom with super old machines. The treadmill was actually rusted and looks like it was purchased from a garage sale. Prior to my arrival, I called the hotel to confirm that they have a washer and dryer. They confirmed to me that they do (they told me that the room is located on the 3rd level and has a coined laundry). When we got there, they were no machines. When I asked the management, I was told that they removed the machines. We had to go shopping for clothes since we were counting on doing laundry there. The pool is the size of the pool that you find at a home, not a hotel. Be prepared to wait at least 30-40 minutes for your order to get there (there were not even busy). Bottom line, this experience was very disappointing and it was a very bad value for the $$.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing these concerns to our attention, but why didn't you let us know while you were staying there. We are very attentive to our guests, but if we don't hear from you we cannot address your concerns. In the meantime, we will be taking immediate action to address these concerns and the resort assures us this will be addressed as well. Thank you for letting us know and immediate remedies are now being implemented.

Very beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. Beautiful views. Room was clean and well maintained and the 2 queen sized beds were very comfortable. Beach was very clean and chairs and umbrellas were provided. Staff was friendly and helpful. Couple of minor issues with the ceiling fan above the beds not working and balcony curtain needing some minor repair.

We particularly enjoyed the evening bellman named Enrique. He assisted us with our luggage when we arrived and never failed to ask us if there was anything he could help us with after that.

Bottom line - We would recommend this resort to anyone. Very lovely!!!

Nice get a way spot but room is unfortunately run down...

  • 3 of 5

I've stayed at the Pelican for years since I was a child and have always loved my time there. On this trip we still had a wonderful time but this specific unit needs some up TLC. I left a list of things I found wrong with unit at the front desk. I also called them in upon arrival as I did not want to be blamed for the things wrong. The first thing noticed was the front door once you close it you see the exposed wires as the door is missing some plastic cover. Then you notice all the walls in the closet and through out the room full of large scuff marks. The fan over the beds did not work. The most dangerous one for families with younger kids was the balcony door would not lock at all. I love this place but I have never seen a unit as run down as this one. Make sure you read their agreement as it explains no shampoo etc. I always bring my own toiletries but other units have had them available from this hotel.

Sorry... just being honest. If you can over look the things listed above then you are good to go.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the info and we were actually scheduled for renovations to this unit during the first week of October, but Hurricane Matthew interrupted the schedule. Nonetheless, the upgrades have been planned for some time in November/December so hopefully the next time you visit, the upgrades will have been completed. In the meantime, travelers can benefit from the reduced rates that are currently available. Thanks again, and we look forward to your future stay at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Car: recommended

Not all units at the resort are the same, and this particular unit is a Queen Size Suite and is considered one of the premiere units at the facility. Also, there are no King Size suites at this facility and you can confirm by reviewing the types of units at the resort web site.

Description of Unit:

2 Queen Size beds - in the bedroom area and the separate sitting area has a pull-out love seat to sleep a total of 5 adults comfortably in one room. The unit is nicely appointed with 2 Televisions, games, music, high-speed internet, mini-refrigerator, microwave, and a coffee maker.

Even with all these great amenities most of your time will be spent touring the beach, sipping a frozen cocktail by the pool side bar, and relaxing in the lazy pool area.

After a long day at the beach, you can visit Las Olas or the Galleria Mall for some of the best shopping and stores in the area. A car is recommended but not required.
