What makes this Condo unique
Pelican Beach Resort enjoys a central Destin, Florida location makes the property a highly sought after destination along with its fantastic amenities with something for everyone.
Walking distance to the water park and surf shops! Third floor so easy access to the stairs when the elevators were crowded, but still an amazing view! **I recommend using UBER instead of driving and parking since there's so much construction on 98**
Our room was just fine, the access to the beach was frustrating.
Our room was fine. The kitchen had necessary tools and there were plenty of towels. It was nice to have a washing machine/dryer. The Pelican resort allows the umbrella/chair company to setup about 5 rows of chairs, starting at the water, and restricts guests from putting their own personal chairs close to the water. They rope off the entire beach in front of the hotel and set up their own chairs very early in the morning. I saw one guest set up her spot earlier near the water, and they made her move it when they arrived. Those of us who bring their own chairs are banished to the BACK of the beach, by the grass. Through 5 rows of chairs and umbrellas, you could barely see the water. But we could look sideways and see the waves through the next door property. However, there were 'no trespassing' signs and we were not allowed to use the neighbors' sparsely populated beaches. There were actually metal signs banning personal chairs near the water. This is not what we paid nearly $400 a night for (including all fees/taxes). Will never go to that resort again. They have figured out how to force some people to pay for overpriced chair rentals. It was a scam. All guests should be allowed to share the beach in a first come first serve fashion, even if you do not want to pay to rent chairs. We all paid for rooms and had children who wanted to see the water. They left very little room for people in the back to even walk up to the water, there were ropes on the sides of the beach to keep the Pelican people 'contained' and off neighboring beaches. Not only was the beach barely visible through all of the rental chairs, it was a chore to navigate to the water with children.
Breath taking and Quant!
Beautiful property with an amazing view of the pool and gulf with chic decor inside. Our group agreed we stayed at the nicest resort close to all of the shopping and activities we did. Our stay was nothing short of pleasant and we will return!
It needed a complete makeover! When you sat on the couchs, you were almost sitting on the floor. The woodwork was chipped and it could use a complete paint job.The washer and dryer had to be replaced because the dryer left black marks on our clothes. It took 10 days to get it replaced. Panhandle did let us use another unit to do our laundry during this time, but that was an inconvenience. The deck furniture had lots of black mold that we could not get off. They brought new deck furniture about 2 weeks before we left. The shower had black mold in it. The kitchen was I'll equiped. The toaster and coffee pot had to be replaced. It was just a bad unit and not cleaned well before we came. Several chair seats had to be screw back on and one was completely off. All in all, not a nice unit.
Very nice and great location; little disappointed with TVs; Main TV was without a functioning remote
Overall, very nice accommodations, beautiful view, great access to venues and shopping.
We are so happy that you enjoyed this wonderful condo and thank you for your valued feedback, we have contacted maintenance to fix any issues with the TV's.
We hope that you think of us again while planning your next beach vacation!
