About the property

Sleeps 5 - 1 Bdrm (2 Queen Beds), Full Bath, adjacent sitting area w/Sofa-Sleep

Arguably, the best Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

If you truly want to stay at the nicest place on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, then you must seriously consider staying at this resort. It's a great opportunity to spoil yourself, and truly experience this grand ocean front resort with lots of great amenities.

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is located directly on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

This is one of the few properties in Fort Lauderdale that is located directly on the sand with the Atlantic Ocean only a few short steps away. This is a privately owned unit, and it is located on the 9th floor of an 11 story building with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean from it's private balcony. Since this unit is privately owned we offer very competitive rates.

Spacious ocean front suite with 2 Queen Size Beds and a separate living area that includes a sofa-sleeper to sleep 5, but at least one of the 5 should be a child.

The restaurant and bar on the first floor are great places for fine dining, and the large spacious area on the veranda make it a great place to sit on the rocking chairs and watch the surf crash on the beach.

Even with all these great amenities most of your time will be spent touring the beach, sipping a frozen cocktail or relaxing near the lazy pool. Not all units at the resort are the same location or quality. This is a Queen Size Suite and is one of the more premiere units at the resort. This unit is larger than most units, is located on the 9th Floor, and has a direct ocean front unit with a private balcony.

Here are other important items to note:

1. We use the Online - HomeAway Reservation Manager for all of our bookings, so our Calendar is always up to date and it's very easy to book a vacation with us.

2. We do our entire booking online using the Reservation Manager and it's one of the smoothest quickest ways to rent a vacation property.

3. Our rates are very competitive for this great unit at this ocean front resort.

4. You work hard all year long, so when you go on vacation, make sure you stay in a nice place on the beach with an unforgettable view of the Atlantic Ocean from your private balcony.

5. Requirements to Rent - Must be at least 25 years old, and present valid ID along with a major credit card when checking in at the resort. No exceptions.

We hope to see you on vacation at this great ocean front resort in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and be sure to request a quote for the dates you would like to travel.

Have a great vacation and make it memorable.

About Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit

Local residents of Florida who love the ocean.

Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit purchased this resort in 2007

Why Pelican Vacation Rentals - Private Unit chose Barrier Island

Great resort, and you simply can't get any closer to the ocean.

What makes this resort unique

One of the very few properties in Fort Lauderdale that is located right on the sand. For all the others you must cross A1A to visit the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The experience could not have been better.

Everyone was extremely pleasant and room was great. We ate dinner in the bar last night and the food was excellent. Got up this morning and walked on the beach, had coffee on veranda and watched a dolphin.

What a great stay at a great resort. We will definitely be back very soon.

Beautiful property on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Very nice resort - perfect for a long weekend (for longer I would want a kitchen). Staff was wonderful and unit was nice. TV situation not great but we had good weather and no kids so or a problem. If you have a lot of hair I would suggest bringing your own dryer. Standard low wattage mini dryer in unit.

Beautiful property! Very nice and comfortable room!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just came back from this beautiful property, and we cannot say enough! The room was very comfortable for our family of 4. The view from the room was incredible. The hotel was right on the beach! The staff was very helpful and went out of their way for us - with the valet, with bringing lounge chairs to the beach, etc. We loved the pool and the lazy river! We loved the live music at night, while rocking on the rocking chairs and listening to the waves. The owner of this unit was very nice and responsive. He was very easy to work with, and wanted to make sure we were comfortable. We loved the Pelican Grand and plan on going back for sure. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Love Grand Pelican Hotel and have stayed here before.We recommend to family & friends

  • 4 of 5

Needs tv in other room and has not been restored even though I read that they were planning on doing it. Otherwise room is very nicely furnished.

1 King size bed & 1 queen would be better instead of just 2 queen

Greatly overpriced. Deserves 3 stars but for the price.

  • 2 of 5

I paid (edited per VRBO policy) for 6 nights with no cleaning services or Wi-Fi. Alternately, had I booked through the Google I would have paid half that a night for the dates I was there and had free Wi-Fi. As I went through VRBO the Wi-Fi was an additional $ (edited per VRBO policy) per DAY, can you imagine?! Parking is (edited per VRBO policy) a day plus gratuity. It is right on a beautiful beach which is too cold to enjoy in February. But what sold us was the heated pool and lazy river for the kida. However, we quickly found out they only heat the pool on the weekends.

The room was very ordinary. Older and in need of new furniture (chairs scuffed up, smallish TV). No glasses, plates, silverware. No TV in sitting room that has hide-a-bed couch. No pillows though for that couch.

Nice view from balcony. Many people frequent the very expensive restaurant, and for whatever reason there was always a slew of exotic sports cars parked in front.

Owner's Response: This information is completely incorrect and misleading. The rate you paid for February of 2018, saved you more than 40% of the customary rate that is charged by the resort for the same unit at this time of the year. This is the highest season in Florida, and this time of year is completely sold out, so discounts are definitely not available through the resort or any other source. Sorry there was wind on the beach, but since the temperatures at night have been fairly warm, the resort tries not to heat the pool when it reaches the intended temperature. Thank you for your comments, but this information is not accurate and travelers are definitely encouraged to compare prices, but just make sure its for the same size unit with the same oceanfront room and balcony.

Car: not necessary

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is located right on the beautiful beach of Fort Lauderdale. The unique location makes it one of the only resorts located directly on the beach, and you don't have to cross the busy street to get to the beach.

Hundreds of guests that have stayed at this resort have given amazing reviews about this vacation resort, and we welcome your inquiry to stay with us.

Not all units at the resort are the same, and this particular unit is a Queen Size Suite and is considered one of the premiere units at the facility. Also, there are no King Size suites at this facility and you can confirm by reviewing the types of units at the resort web site.

Description of Unit:

2 Queen Size beds - in the bedroom area and the separate sitting area has a new pull-out sofa bed to sleep a total of 6 in one room. The unit is nicely appointed with new furniture, mini-refrigerator, microwave, and a coffee maker.

Even with all these great amenities most of your time will be spent touring the beach, sipping a frozen cocktail by the pool side bar, and relaxing in the lazy pool area.

After a long day at the beach, you can visit Las Olas or the Galleria Mall for some of the best shopping and stores in the area. A car is really not needed and Uber can really be a great option.

7 Miles from the Fort Lauderdale Airport

6 Miles from the Port Everglades - Cruise Ship Port

6 Miles from the Broward Convention Center
