Don’t be put off by the 3-star rating. Pelican Beach resort has everything you need for an enjoyable super-relaxing getaway. We chose Pelican Beach while celebrating our 30th Anniversary.

We had a large modern apartment on the 5th floor with a balcony that opened right over the beach. We kept the balcony door open most of the time just to listen to the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing down in the gulf.

Down below there were several pools for guests to use, one indoor and two outdoors, plus an outdoor hottub AND an outdoor Jacuzzi tub.

The bed was super comfy and the blackout curtains were the icing on the sleep cake. In addition to the ceiling fans, I was also impressed that an extra oscillating fan had been provided in the bedroom, I guess for those of us who like to sleep with a fan on like normal people. (Our bedroom was not near the balcony, so falling asleep to ocean sounds from the bedroom was not an option). However the sofa bed was right beside the balcony, so yes, you can easily hear the ocean lullaby from there.

If your family likes activities, there are several adventure parks literally walking distance from PB. Also a nice breakfast restaurant with delicious pancakes and omelettes right within walking distance. Many other restaurants and stores nearby.

We will definitely be returning to PB for vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our Anniversary stay, and we are 100% planning to also bring our kids and grands back soon for a family vacation.

The stay was great highly recommended

The location and unit was in the perfect spot on the beach but a little outdated/run down. The unit was located right off the elevator which was nice and we didn’t hear much commotions from the outside. The laundry room was also right outside the unit but it was community and coin laundry. The king bed was really firm or hard and wasn’t great for my back. The sofa was old and needed a deep clean. We used the sheets for the pullout sofa to cover it just to sit on it. I really wished the we had stuff to used for the beach such as beach towels and boogie boards but there wasn’t any so we had to go out and buy them. Also, the resort offered beach chairs and umbrellas for an hourly and daily fee, wished it would’ve been included in the rental fee but it wasn’t so we didn’t use it. But we did love all the pools and tiki bar. You really do get what you paid for.

Very clean, loved the the view. Very satisfied !
Needed more blankets ,garbage bags and egg crates on sofa bed and bunks. Would definitely stay again

The condo was huge for only being a one bedroom and 2 bath. Beautiful scenic view of the emerald coast. Excellent tiki bar and pools, gym, and little Cafe/store/restaurant. No real coffee/espresso options unfortunately. Close to everything and can walk to what you need but it's not safe. There are no sidewalks to get off the property. Crossing the main drag to get to all the amenities was dangerous. The security on the premises does their jobs very well. Don't forget your bracelet!

We had a an enjoyable stay in unit 504. Conveniently located right off the elevator and across from the laundry room. Beds were all comfortable. Shower heads are moldy and could use a deep clean and would have liked to have actual beach chairs instead of lawn chairs to use at the beach. Ocean view is amazing and room is also located over the outdoor pool area as well. We arrived early but were not allowed to get into our room before 4 PM even after calling Vacasa which was frustrating as we feel like we wasted part of our day waiting to get settled and could have enjoyed the beautiful day by the pool or ocean.
Manager response:
Hi Sarah. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We apologize for the cleanliness issues of the shower heads you experienced. We have passed your comments along to our House Keeping Manager and will use it as an area to improve upon for the future. Unfortunately, during this time, we are unable to offer early check-in or late check-out. In order to promote the health and safety of our communities, we’re expanding our cleaning measures overall and increasing the time our housekeepers spend caring for each Vacasa home. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and hope to host you again soon.

Shower curtain was molded. Toilet seat needs changing.
Sheets on the king size bed looked stained and dirty. Ironing board was broken. Sofa in living area was stained and looked old, need to be thrown out or cleaned.

Amber C. Aug 2021
We loved this resort so much! It is private so we felt safe. The beach is private. It has 3 pools, a spa, & a hottub. The view was AMAZING! & for the price you couldn't beat,my husband wouldn't hush about how good i done. Book this room its very worth it! (Only thing I will say is the tub doesn't drain very well it that's an easy fix I still give this place 5 stars) can't wait to be back soon!!! 💙
Manager response:
Hi, Amber! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your review and your feedback. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff to be sure they are aware of and correct the tub drain for the comfort of future guests. We hope for the opportunity to better serve you in the future!

Very nice and clean!

We really enjoyed the great beach front view and how easily accessible the beach was from where we stayed. The place provided everything we needed while we were there. The one and only complaint I have is that after we checked out, we realized that we forgot a personal item in the room. We contacted the front desk, Vacasa and housekeeping to retrieve our belongings. We were told absolutely no one had access into the room so in order to retrieve our personal item, we had to have them put in a help ticket which cost $25 that I didn’t have an issue paying but was told that maintenance would be out sometime that day to look for the item where it was left and we would have to pay the shipping fee. I was more upset that absolutely no one could go in there and retrieve our personal item, not even housekeeping. It has been 2 days and they still have not contacted me regarding the personal item that was left behind. Also, if you have any left over groceries (unopened or not) do NOT leave them behind thinking they will accept them. They are NOT aloud to accept them due to health risks. You can take them down to the front desk and the Pelican Resort will be happy to accept them. We never had an issue with the Resort.
Manager response:
Hi, Justin! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are so sorry to read about the lack of assistance you received regarding your lost items. The necessary follow-up training has been done to ensure all parties involved receive correct communications and information in lost & found situations. We hope to better impress you in the future.

loved the view.
easy access to the beach
SHARON N. Jul 2020
Room was was good, housekeeping could have swept better and maybe cleaned what looked like boogers off the hall wall. The condo itself is having a new pool built which will be nice. The pool now is very small for such a big place, and the position of where it’s at is kinda weird as you only get sun from maybe 8-2. Beautiful view from the room. Last complaint is the parking garage. When it rains, it actually rains in the covered garage and the spaces closest to the building are taken by the employees and housekeeping
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Sharon! We apologize for the housekeeping oversights and will be sure to ask our team to scrub down the walls. The HOA has been advised of your other concerns. We hope to see you again!
