About Mike Reece

Im a native Floridian whom grew up and has lived in the Ft.Lauderdale area all of my life.

Mike Reece purchased this hotel in 2012

Why Mike Reece chose Downtown

This is the only Resort directly on Ft.Lauderdale Beach. Many others are across busy A1A and do not provide the quaint luxurious atmosphere the Pelican Grand provides.

What makes this hotel unique

This is the only Resort directly on Ft.Lauderdale Beach with open balconies to the ocean.

The Pelican also has the only zero-entry pool and private lazy river in all of Ft.Lauderdale. In addition an upscale restaurant and Hotel Bar make it the perfect destination for both out of town and locals guests to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mike,

We absolutely loved your condo and the Pelican Grand. The unit was spotless and the staff was exceptional. We only left the property one night for dinner at Coconuts (which was also fabulous) but the remainder of our meals were right on property. No complaints and we hope to come back someday. Take care and thanks again.


P.S. You were so right about the weather was perfect. Only problem is we are going home to SNOW!

Great pre cruise mini vacation

  • 5 of 5

This hotel and room were perfect for our family of 5 for three nights before our cruise. The beach and the pool with the lazy river were awesome, my kids loved it. The room was great and Mike was quick to answer any questions. Beautiful sunrises from the balcony. More food options would have been good but we grabbed an Uber to nearby restaurants. Great stay!

As real as the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation. Pelican Grand Resort is very nice. Fully staffed and friendly. Our room and everything else was very clean and in good repair. I don’t think you can get any closer to the beach. The food is good, and you can eat out side with ocean views. (Just a note) A little pricey for us, but nice. We usually go a different place every year, but we will we come back.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about this property! The room is spotless with a stunning view and the hotel itself is beautiful . We had a great stay even though it unfortunately got cut short due to having to evacuate for hurricane Irma . Mike even was kind enough to refunded us a night which he completely did not have to do ! The property is great and the owner is top notch as well! Highly reccomed . We will for sure come back ! :)
