Recent Pelican Beach Resort reviews

  • Great Location on the Beach

    "My wife and I planned our 2 year anniversary trip to the beach and found this listing right on the water. Kevin (the owner) was quick and courteous as to our questions and responded timely to our concern about the property (which I will note a little later). The condo was well maintained and boasted a fantastic balcony view of the water. October is considered the off-season in Destin, but I was surprised at how many people were there during the week. Not a bad thing, just something to remember that it is a very popular place. The Pelican beach resort ropes off the beach area designated for guests but if it gets a little too crowded you can always take a walk down the beach or move down in the water will no trouble at all. I was told by several locals that October is the time to go to Destin, and I was ecstatic that we had sunshine for the entire 7 day trip. The weather was abnormally cool for the first couple of days upper 60's with little humidity. As the week progressed the weather was in the 80's with high humidity, and the water warmed up nicely. When we arrived at the property I noticed immediately that the floors had not been vacuumed. There was a laundry basket full of towels (that we found to be clean thankfully) on the bed. All of the trash cans were empty and I had to search around for liners. It took about an hour to clean off the counters and the table outside, as well as the windows that were covered in the hand prints of a child. This was not a huge issue, but I was disappointed. After contacting Kevin about the place being dirty he offered to have the cleaning lady come by and clean it up for us the next day. I declined his offer as it took about an hour to get things in tip top shape. This would get 5 stars if everything was cleaned properly but not a deal breaker by any means. I do not assume that this is a problem as many people have noted that it is very clean when they arrive. The condo is very well stocked with everything you need to avoid having to eat out every meal. We saved quite a bit of money cooking seafood in the kitchen and eating there. The condo provides grills outside which are nice if you like grilled food. I did not swim in the pools (one heated, one not) as the ocean was so close. There are several eateries within walking distance (1 or 2 blocks). My wife and I walked all the way to the edge of town (several miles) and back, but I would not recommend this in very hot weather. All in all a great Trip. Thanks Kevin!"

  • A Great Place to Stay

    "The condo was just as you see it in the pictures - nicely updated and well-maintained. The resort staff was friendly and pleasant. Jack is a great owner, was easy to work with and everything was as he represented it. I have already recommended to a friend and the next time we head to Destin, we will definitely book this condo!"

  • Beautiful week at the beach--Nice condo

    "We had a nice week staying in this unit. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. Loved the coffee maker. Some nice extras like a starter dish soap and starter toilet paper that other condos have not offered. This is a popluar place which means the beach (as well as the pool deck area) is very, very crowded and although the surrounding beaches are less crowded, you are restricted to place your chairs in the Pelican Beach resort section. People literally are out on the beach placing their chairs at 6:30-7am to get spot and it was 4-5 rows of chairs deep all week long. The sand is prestine and the beach is very clean. There are virtually no shells or seaweed. If you want to search for shells you will need to go somewhere else. This unit is on the side of the building. You can see the beach from the deck. The complex in general has a good staff. From the staff at the desk, to janitorial staff, they seem attentive. We loved the grill area which is directly below this unit. For the size of the unit (comparible to other places we've stayed in the area) it was a bit more expensive than similar sized units but for the price you have access to the fitness center so you are not paying extra for that. The master bath is decorated nicely but the sink area does not allow for much counter space. My husband found the "therapeutic" stone floor uncomfortable to walk on. It is a matter of preference I guess. In the 2nd bedroom, the tv is placed where only one person who is in the room can view the TV when it is on. Overall the unit is nice, staff on site were nice and the owners were easy to work with. Pelican Beach is nearby many places, easily accessible to stores and some things are within just a short walk."
