Pelican Bay Hotel
- What's Included
I visited three months after Hurricane Matthew and it was great to see progress on the clear up. As far as The Pelican was concerned you wouldn't know there had been a hurricane. My room had a great view over water with mini kitchen facilities if required. Extremely quiet it was the best sleep on the islands I have visited on this Caribbean trip. Port Lucaya is quiet and although there are a couple of bars and restaurants nearby, this is a get away from it destination.
Stayed here with a group of people during a dive vacation in June. The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly throughout the stay. The grounds were nicely maintained and had a number of pools to enjoy. The on site restaurants had a variety of options and everything came out great. The free breakfast was also a nice feature and provided a decent variety. The hotel was in perfect accessibility to not only the UNEXSO dive centre but also the mini shopping and restaurant plaza. Theirs also a water taxi that stops right outside the hotel to take you to another part of the island where you can enjoy a beautiful beach. Regardless of what kind of vacation your looking for, this hotel will certainly provide you will all you need to make it a good one.
so this was my first time using a Groupon getaway deal so I was a little worried that there would be issues. Had also read some reviews that made me a little nervous as well. But everything was beyond my expectations. Room had spectacular views, was huge, had a cottage feel to it. Loved how it was decorated. Coffee and espresso machines, fridge and microwave. Breakfast was great! Bones Bar is fantastic, swim up pool, delicious meat pies (yes, MEAT PIES!!) Sabor was very good, too. One of the best meals I had while we were there. short walk to shopping, casino and beaches. Next door to place that offers dolphin excursions and diving outings. Water taxi to another beach. Just a great, great place to stay!!!!!
We were pleasantly surprised by our wonderful suite at the Pelican Bay. The suites are like mini vacation apartment rentals. They come equipped with bar, microwave, fridge, coffee and espresso makers with a selection of complementary gourmet pods. The decor is Caribbean vintage with Bahamian art and woodwork. Quite comfortable and homey. The view from the private balcony was beautiful, peaceful and serine. The complimentary breakfast left a lot to be desired. They do not offer late check out and the housekeeping staff will harass you until you let them in to clean hours before check out time. The service needs addressing and proper training. But the suites would make me consider a second stay.
The first week we had no power and everything was as good as could be expected. We got power back 6 days ago. I will most likely be here for at least another month on business. The staff is great, Vandyke is a personality you like to have behind the bar. The resort itself is tired. The beds are not comfortable and the rooms could be much cleaner. Still no TV. The food is pretty good but expensive. The service is terrible. No beach front so there is little to do if vacationing. I'm here on business and would not return for a vacation. Much of the island has cable back up and running. You would think this place would have some pull as there are many contractors staying here. We were one of the first to have power back but still no TV. The menu is very limited with no specials. Again the service at the restaurant / bar is very slow and a bit pricey.
