Pelican Grand Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Directly on the sand -- rare in Fort Lauderdale
  • Two restaurants, with lots of outdoor seating
  • Beautiful Old Key West design
  • Great pool complex with lazy river

Cons

Bottom Line

The Old Key West decor of this 156-room hotel is a welcomed changed from the modern, minimalist design that is the norm at most Fort Lauderdale hotels; instead, picture a veranda with rocking chairs, a stately porte-cochere, rattan furniture, and whirling ceiling fans. Rooms look like they're straight out of a bed and breakfast, and the hotel's location directly on the sand is a rarity in this city.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Great location, right on the beach

Pelican Grand Beach Resort is part of Fort Lauderdale's main strip of beach hotels, along A1A highway. Unlike most of the other hotels, however, it is right on the beach, so you don't have to cross the street to get to the ocean.

Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, Pelican Grand Beach Resort has beautiful views all around and is close to many beachside hotels and restaurants. The Fort Lauderdale Beach is at the front door and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a wildlife preserve, is just blocks away.

  • On the beach
  • 12-minute walk to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park
  • 8-minute drive to Las Olas Boulevard, a strip of restaurants, bars, and clubs
  • 12-minute drive to downtown Fort Lauderdale
  • 16-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 45-minute drive to Miami
  • 45-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 1-hour drive to Palm Beach

 Bottom Line

The Old Key West decor of this 156-room hotel is a welcomed changed from the modern, minimalist design that is the norm at most Fort Lauderdale hotels; instead, picture a veranda with rocking chairs, a stately porte-cochere, rattan furniture, and whirling ceiling fans. Rooms look like they're straight out of a bed and breakfast, and the hotel's location directly on the sand is a rarity in this city.
