We checked in an hour early and were provided the next available room. The room was on the first floor behind the housekeeping facilities. It was not as advertised in the website stock images for a waterside king. We were greeted with a rusty front door, worn furnishings, and a patio view of palms trees. It was extremely disappointing. I asked the front desk for a room with a better view. He offered a 4th floor suite. What a complete difference in rooms. So much so, that they seem to belong to two different establishments. The suite was very comfortable with a kitchenette, great bayfront views and sunrises. Additional pros included secured hotel access, a gym, 3 pools, laundry facilities, and proximity to Lucaya Marketplace for shops, restaurants and entertainment. Cons included a daily resort fee (noticed upon check-out), no breakfast without additional fees, and no water taxi to the beach (out of service). These are things that could have been explained during check-in, but were not.

My Daughter surprised Me with a last minute vacation deal via Groupon. We was very pleased with his hotel. They offer free breakfast which was very tasty. The coffee, dining room apmosphere and nice staff made this a highlight in the morning.Hotel is comfortable and clean we had a room over looking the bay and sunrise was just awsome . You have a short walk thru one of the larger hotels to get to the ocean .The views made the walk worth it . I would love to catch another deal and go back

Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I went down for a 4 night getaway and loved it. Our room was clean, comfortable, and had all you would need. Our package included breakfast, which had fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast, oatmeal, grits, and bread. There were three great pools located on the grounds. They also have two restaurants and a bar located on their property. It is just a short walk to the marketplace which has many more great restaurants and shops. Pelican Bay also provides shuttle service to Taino beach. The beach is beautiful and surprisingly uncrowded. We loved our time there and are planning to bring our kids back next year.

Really a very nice place to stay. The staff is amazingly friendly. The rooms are quaint, authentic and comfortable. It has 2 restaurants onsite and 3 pools. This is a bay view hotel, not on the beach. But, the beach is a 7 minute walk away or a water taxi ride (free) to Taino Beach. Room service is a little slow (the missed our room completely one day). Just across the street from Lucaya market. I would recommend and I would go again and I don't normally stay at a place that is not right on the beach.
