This 6th floor condo in the Resorts of Pelican Beach Destin, has spectacular views of the powdery white beaches, emerald water and all the comforts of home. You can relax on our balcony and enjoy the direct view of the beach that Southern Living Magazine voted #1 in the United States! Watch the dolphins play in the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Everything is furnished for a 'home away from home' feel. You can take a 10 minute walk along to the beach to the world famous 'Back Porch'. Stay for a Bloody Mary served in a beach pail or stay for lunch. Lots of local fare to snack on including their famous Amber Jack Sandwiches. All this right on the beach so flip flops are not required! Wake up in the morning and walk next door for an incredible breakfast at The Pancakery for incredible pancakes and breakfast. You don't have to worry about losing your key in the sand...This condo has keyless entry - no key to pick up or send back and forth, no key to worry about losing at the beach. There are so many restaurants in the area or you can buy fresh (just off the boat) seafood at the local markets and cook it yourself! The community is gated and guarded for your family's security and you can call the front desk anytime, day or night, if you need anything during your stay. Across the street is the Famous 'Big Kahuna' water and adventure park and Race Track Go-Kart racing.

The property was clean. The staff was very nice and courteous. The gentleman in the Cafewas so kind and the food was delicious. The room itself was clean and accommodating. It had appropriate amount of towels and toiletries. There is nothing to complain about. The view was gorgeous. We needed to contact the owners at check in for a few questions and they were prompt and considerate making sure everything was going okay. Overall the stay was outstanding.

We won't come back to this resort.
Our family of two adults and 5 children ranging between 2 and 12 years of age came to enjoy the beach only to find the beach access designated for the resort had umbrella and chair setups four rows deep that you had to rent for $38 a day and there was no option of getting on the front row unless you had reserved the seats for the chairs months in advance, which made it impossible to watch our children play without an unobstructed view which was nervewracking as all get out. We rented a set up one day and were on the 4th row but all it was used for was a place to sit our stuff which was a waste of money so our only option was to play in the pool until 5pm when they took the umbrellas and chairs down. By then the waves were super rough. They wanted to charge $25 to replace a plastic wristband that was needed to have access to the resort if it got lost. The same lady that checked our family of 7 in upon arrival, fussed at me for having more than 6 guests in our room when I asked to take advantage of the discount Big Kahuna Waterpark passes that was displayed on the check in counter when I asked to purchase 7 tickets. When I booked the room through Homeaway.com it was listed that we could have 8 people which was the plan but our son did not get to come. It was very rude and embarrassing to be treated that way. The facility had many no smoking signs everywhere however there seemed to be a stinch of strong marijuana especially in the evenings at the pool and no one around to do anything about it. Other than these issues we loved our room, our view, the pools, the tiki bar and Cafe very much. The security guards were super friendly and helpful. Frontdesk staff... could use some help in the friendly and not ready to bite your head off for asking a question department.
Thank you for your review and we are happy that our condo was a relaxing and safe haven for you during your vacation in Destin. Also sounds like you enjoyed the multitude of amenities available to you at the resort as well as nearby family activities. The chair rental companies are a City of Destin ordinance and there is nothing we can do about that, though I will say that when we stay at the condo we simply walk a minute down the beach in either direction to a location that is not so crowded and set up our beach there as close as we want to the surf. As for the resort staff I have contacted management and demanded they look into the issue of friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk staff during peak season. I have also made them aware of the smoking problem and asked them to be more understanding with lost wrist bands. In the future please contact us during your stay so we can contact management immediately and get any issues straightened out ASAP. I do hope you give the resort 1 more chance and if you do please mention this review and receive 10% off your rental rate.
This property was amazing!! It was everything I could have asked for. Bonus was the lower bunk bed that was twice the size and could sleep my twins with 3rd child on top. View was awesome, food in the pool shop was fantastic, indoor pool was a surprise. This resort has it all. Great location as well. Thank you for allowing us to stay.
My husband and I spent five nights here. Clean, well furnished, and roomy. We had our cousins over for a "dinner party" and found that we needed more plates. There were 9 of us. I know the write up said the unit could accomodate 8, so this isn't a complaint but a suggestion. Please buy more plates, even if they don't match. Linens were nice and the unit had enough towels. Hope to return.
We have stayed here at Pelican Resorts and have never had a problem
This was the off season so the cafe was not open other than that all was good
