Great Hotel
Reviewed 6 days ago

Advertised as “The Happiest Hotel in Grand Bahama”, Pelican Bay didn’t disappoint. The rooms were fresh; all amenities were new including TV etc. The staff was friendly and willing to help, especially Robyn from the front desk. Another big pro was the restaurant with the best food on the island. Look forward to coming back!

Hotel not as advertized
Reviewed 1 week ago

We booked through Priceline, upgraded room to what was described as having sea views. This hotel is totally on a canal, not the sea. We were given a renovated room which worked well except for the a/c. We never got it to properly work. Constantly needed adjustments. Chairs on balcony were hard plastic, very uncomfortable. The "sofa" was iron lawn furniture with very thin mat. Fortunately the bed was comfortable. Ferry to beach worked well. Front desk usually one overworked person. Would not stay there again.

Great Experience
Reviewed 1 week ago

I traveled to this island to attend a training course and my stay at Pelican Bay hotel was so welcoming, enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing that I was letting all my family and friends know of this place. I am even planning on my return fir vacation this time and to get more experience of the island this time around. Even the food at the hotel was enjoyable, I loved their burger and fries plus they had good customer services all round.What a wonderful place to just take a load off and to feel laid back without stressing about anything but to wake each day with the cool breeze of the morning with the wonderful sunrise in your face from your room, for me on the fourth floor purple area.Its a definite return in the very near future. Thank you Pelican Bay Hotel for making my stay a memorable one.

Great location and comfortable rooms
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The rooms here are large, well maintained and very comfortable. The location is excellent for visiting all parts of Grand Bahama. The hotel is also very close to many restaurants as well as a local shopping venue with both regular stores and local handicrafts. Overall, an excellent choice for visiting Grand Bahama Island.

Nice Place

We booked a 6-night stay at Pelican Bay after learning from a Trip Advisor review that in mid-February Old Bahama Bay Club melted down in a dispute between the owners. We didn’t know what to expect at Pelican Bay, and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff is great, the suites and rooms are large and attractive, the gardens beautiful, the pools, bars, restaurants, hammocks, spa, etc. all very enjoyable. The Lucaya Market next door was not exactly the indigenous experience we imagined but it grew on us and in the end we were very glad for its bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment. Port Lucaya is still hurting in the wake of the 2008 economic downturn and damage wreaked by the 2016 hurricane. The owners of the huge, nearby Grand Lucayan resort and casino shuttered it when times got tough. The government is trying to salvage it but without this key crowd generator the area is a bit eerie (though still pleasant) with only a fraction of the visitors it was built for. Be sure to visit beautiful Taino Beach (a short hop on a free ferry from Pelican Bay), the Wednesday night fish fry on Smith’s Point, the Garden of the Groves (with great lunch cafe) and the Lucayan National Park with interesting caves and the most beautiful wild beach we have ever seen. Best fancy restaurant: Flying Fish. Best all around restaurant: Zorba’s.
