This place was fantastic. We spent five nights here in the middle of our honeymoon and just loved it! Our room package included a copy of the New York Times delivered with fresh pastries to our door every morning, which we read outside on our sunny balcony overlooking a swimming pool and the marina. Fabulous! The room was enormous as...

When we decided to plan our wedding in the Caribbean, we quickly determined that a big "wedding factory" resort wasn't the right fit. We sought out Pelican Bay based on their reputation as an intimate wedding destination capable of personalizing our experience-- ensuring that our 75-guest wedding was both uniquely tailored to our vision and flawlessly executed. At Pelican Bay,...

I stayed at pelican bay for five days in late April. The hotel was nice, however I was surprised with a couple things. Such as: There is no beach at the resort, you are on an inland channel and have to walk to a public beach at the Radison. The breakfast provided is the same every day, and not that...

Dear joebobjoebob, I am awfully sorry that you were surprised that we were not on a beach but rather the marina. We've never attempted to provide an false information regarding our location.

Dear Drglide, Pelican Bay prides itself with a very good safety and security record. We have a modern key system with the ability “to read” all access to the room, and we have a sophisticated camera system. Even though we have a very good record in safety & security, we like all hotels do have a few incidents. We believe...

if you want your stuff stolen, stay at Pelican Bay. When items were stolen from our rooms, the response from the maid was "I clean with the door open so anyone can walk in and take whatever they want". Need I say more?
