Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Fort Lauderdale - Sue and Steve's Pelican Grand

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Thank you so much for considering our unit at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Steve and I purchased our rental in mid 2011, and have enjoyed spending family time at the resort with our children and grand kids.

*******************************************************************

Each year, we continue to make more and more updates to make your vacation experience the best it can be.

Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are:

- Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both ends. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.)

- New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.)

- Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit)

- Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original 2 cubic foot compact fridge with a 4.4 cubic foot model)

- Larger microwave (just replaced the smaller original unit with a high end convection model)

- Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area)

- More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs)

- Plus, plus, plus more....

The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal.

*******************************************************************

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a Four Star Resort, located directly on the beach in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The oceanfront resort is situated on 500 feet of sandy beach, perfect for tanning and swimming. The property is one of only two resort/hotels in Fort Lauderdale located directly on the ocean, as almost all other hotels/resorts are located across A1A.

From our 5th floor unit, the view is amazing. You can sit on the private balcony, look out over the water and hear the sounds of waves crashing onto the shore.

• Couples for a Romantic Getaway, featuring Private Room with Private Balcony, Oceanside Veranda, Private Beach, Upscale Bar/Lounge, and Rooftop Patio

The resort requires that you are at least 21 years of age and have a valid credit card to check in.

Check-in 4:00pm, Check-out 11:00am

FEES:

o Valet parking: If you have a car, the resort charges $30/day, plus 11% tax, with in-and-out privileges. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative for parking in the area; however, there is taxi service and a city bus line that runs right outside the resort.

o Housecleaning: $75 Check-out Cleaning fee, plus 11% tax is required. If you wish to have additional cleaning during your visit, the resort changes $35 per occurrence, plus 11% tax. You must request optional housecleaning when you check in if you want your room cleaned and the Consumable Supplies replaced by the Resort staff during your stay. If you do not request optional housecleaning, there will be no replenishment of Consumable Supplies (for example, toilet paper, Kleenex, shampoo, conditioner, soap, coffee, cups, clean towels, etc.) during your stay.

o Internet Access: Effective January 23, 2014, the Pelican Grand began charging for Internet access for all privately owned units. The new policy is to charge $19.95 per day per device, plus 11% tax. This seems very high to us, but they claim this is consistent with pricing at other hotels in the area. As an alternative, we suggest you use the personal hotspots that are available on most smart phones as a more economical alternative to signing into the Pelican WIFI. Go to ‘settings’ on your phone and turn on the ‘hotspot’ button. It should show you the name of your phone’s network and the password for you to use on your other devices to hook up. Then go to wireless connections on your laptop, select the name of your phone’s network and enter the password. You can enter multiple devices at the same time on your hotspot network, i.e. I-pads and computers. Please note that if you use this to watch movies or other high data uses, you will want to keep an eye on your service provider’s data limit.

About Sue Morrison

We are a retired couple from Iowa who miss the ocean. When we first saw the Pelican Grand, we fell in love and knew we wanted to spend more time there.

Sue Morrison purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sue Morrison chose Fort Lauderdale

The view!!! Being able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking out over the ocean. Enjoying a cocktail on the private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Short car ride to many fantastic restaurants, night clubs and shopping areas.

Close to cruise terminals of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sue,



We had a great time staying in your unit. Definitely a 5 star experience. I don't have a VRBO account but feel free to post this review:



The room was very well maintained and spacious. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The resort itself was fantastic. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The pool was great and being directly on the beach was a nice perk. Would definitely stay here again!



Thanks!

Great Beach Front Unit

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and i had a wonderful stay at the Pelican Grand Resort. The people who worked there are very courteous and always willing to help out with directions, arranging for taxi's or places to dine.
The unit was very clean and neat, it has 2 queen size beds which was fine for us and the bed linens and pillows were of very good quality and it was nice to have a small living room to relax in. The couch has 2 built in recliners and love seat is a fold out bed. The unit comes with a small frig & microwave as well as a toaster.
One thing I will say it that the room service food was actually very good, so it was a real plus for us when we decided we were too tired to go out after being at the boat show all day.

Private beachfront and friendly staff!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time for a very short stay (3 nights)!! It was our 10th wedding anniversary ! We would recommend if you stay for more than 2 nights is buy some groceries and water on the way from the airport. We did not rent a car and as there is a small store on site but with a limited selection. The waitress service was great at the beach, pool and restaurants. The birds were slightly annoying at the pool so if you intend to snack poolside beware...
I rented a SUP for $25 per hour and it was fantastic! With a quick lesson, I was off. Plenty of floats and toys at he beach and the towels and umbrellas thay they set up for you. A few of the lounge chairs were run down. The unit itself was perfect! We had a nice seating area with leather recliners and coffee table.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and 2 kids spent four lovely nights at this resort. The room was large and spacious. The kids loved the beach, pool and lazy river. The weather was perfect and we loved seeing the cruise ships sailing out most nights. Thank you and we look forwarding to returning next year.
