This was our second stay at Pelican Bay, so you already know we love the place. It is quaint, quiet, yet steps away from the activity in the Marketplace. Upgrades from last year include good, flat screen TVs and much better reception. The only thing we didn't like was the living room sofa and chair set which had very high...

Dear Drifters_10, Yayy! We are happy that you had a wonderful stay with us! And loving the place is just beautiful, because I love it too! It was very great of you to notice our upgrades, we continue to do them periodically to ensure that our visitors are happy! Your point regarding the high sides of the sofa chairs is...

Nice: close to POIs, not a bunker like e.g. the Grand Lucayan, holiday-feeling, everything was clean. Could be improved: simplicity of the rooms, loud bathroom-aeration. We (a 30 year old couple) have done a roundtrip through Florida and wanted to spend a couple of relaxing days afterwards on the Bahamas. The Pelican Bay is nicely located at the channel. Don't...

A four-day weekend is just the prescription for a hectic lifestyle. In season I'm sure this place rocks . . . with three pools, two bars and an easy walk from Port Lucaya. In early December however 'island time' is the rule of the day. The room was sparsely yet adequately furnished. The staff was available, not enthusiastic. The price...

Hotel is in a good location for the market and a short walk to the beach. Hotel rooms are a little worn and require updating 301 is above sabor restaurant which gives a nice smell of fried food when you open the door Would definitely pay the extra money and stay in the radisson across the street next time

PelicanResort, Operations Manager at Pelican Bay at Lucaya, responded to this review

Dear Mikeysjfc, Thank you for bringing this to our attention! My best guess is that you experienced the aroma from the restaurant possibly because it was much windier than usual. Our rooms are constantly being evaluated and upgrades are being done periodically. We are truly sorry that we were unable to deliver a happy experience to you while here; however...

The people of the Bahamas are wonderful. You always feel at home while surrounded in a tropical paridise. Pelican Bay is located in a perfect location right next door to the Lucaya Marketplace. The Marketplace has numerous shops and excellent restaurants to choose. We had breakfast at one of the restaurants every morning and started each day with "boy am...

Dear David K, Such a pleasant review! Reading your review just caused me to appreciate working in such a paradise and not taking it for granted for even a moment!

We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday with a long weekend in Freeport. We chose this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. We had the waterside stateroom which was spacious, clean with a beautiful view of the channel. The delivery of the pastries were our wakeup call. We tried the expresso machines....but we also had the...

We booked a package through Westjet Vacations through Toronto and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and Grand Bahama Island.

I booked the trip through Hotwire and found a great deal for $780 per person from Ottawa, ON.

A 5 night stay at the Pelican Bay is all about endurance. The hotel itself is very colorful and nicely maintained. And that is about where the compliments stop. Staying at a hotel is all about the staff that services you, and the staff at the Pelican Bay is truly lacking in customer service. It took all our efforts to...
