About Larry Levine
My family and I have been in the real estate business for decades. My father owned his own Real Estate Company, and is now retired. I am licensed in Real Estate in California. 30 years ago while traveling in Australia, I met my co-owners and we have been great friends ever since. We enjoy vacationing together and offering out our various properties to others around the world to enjoy as well!
Larry Levine purchased this Hotel in 2017
Why Larry Levine chose Fort Lauderdale
This Boutique Hotel is one of only a few Luxury Resorts located directly on the sand in Ft. Lauderdale. No crossing the A1A 4 lane Highway to get to the beach. It is one of the most well cared for properties, with a beautiful oceanfront restaurant that offers al fresco dining, a bar & grill, business center, fitness center, meeting rooms, a Lazy River pool, an Ice Cream Shoppe, and understated elegance throughout. Perfect for families with children, honeymoon couples, cruise departures, or business travelers. It's close and convenient to the Fort Lauderdale Airport, Port Everglades Cruise Port, and also close to Las Olas Blvd and many other sights and attractions.
What makes this Hotel unique
We enjoy dining while watching the waves crash on the beach, having a cup of coffee in the rocking chairs on the veranda, watching the sunrise over the ocean from our balcony. The Sunday Champagne Brunch is magnificent, and the only one directly on the beach! The staff at The Pelican Grand are the most courteous and friendly you will find anywhere, offering the utmost in guest services.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Our awesome stay on Ft. lauderdale Beach !
Great contact with owner, and very accommodating to our request to rent the unit a day earlier. The apartment was as described and perfect for our short stay, very clean and awesome shower in bathroom. A beautiful resort and the views from the room were perfect. Thanks Larrry we will be back soon !
Beautiful Ocean view
The property is beautiful, the staff are conscientious and the restaurant is good. It's a nice quiet part of the Fort Lauderdale Beach north of the main hotel drag. No car horns and high rpm engines ruining the calming sound of the ocean waves you'll enjoy sitting on the balcony looking out over the Atlantic. The room is clean and comfortable and the seperate sitting room is nice.
Larry was easy to work with and check in went off without a hitch. The valet parking was also very nice as you just needed to open a link they texted to you, click to request your car and it was ready when you got down stairs. The $35 parking fee is steep but you could leave and return any time without an additional charge.
You will want a car or take ubers because although there are many great restaurants in the area, none are in easy walking distance and you won't want to eat every meal at the hotel restaurant. As nice as it is. I recommend the Salmon Benedict for breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean.
My only issue was my mistake. I assumed that a one bedroom Condo would have a kitchen. But this is not the kind of condo I am used to. It is simply a hotel room in a resort which is privately owned and rented. Of course the listing did not mention a kitchen so that is my error.
Thank you to Larry for sharing his property and allowing us to check out late.
Hi James - Thank you for an excellent review. You've pointed out things that other guests would be interested in and possibly use for their visits. I didn't even know about the texting for Valet Service! Sorry there is no full kitchen, but I do have a microwave, mini-fridge, Keurig coffeemaker, and a blender.
Great location and great view.
The property was very clean, upscale and best of all, the room was directly on the beach, ocean front! I am glad I found this listing and booked here. The pictures do not do it justice. Even prettier than it shows. The room with two beds is separated with a beautiful window so you can either close the shades off if you have someone sleeping in the sitting room or keep blinds open so you can enjoy the ocean view as well from there. Staff was very friendly and very helpful.
Awesome place to stay!
This is my third time renting from Larry and working with him has always been great. The building and grounds are beautiful and the staff can't be beat. I'll be back!
Hi David- I appreciate your comments about me, and also I appreciate that you're one of my repeat customers! Hope to hear from you again soon..
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Grand. Our unit was perfect for our family.
The staff at Pelican Grand were simply amazing. We met so many people from so many places. Bryan, on the beach, went above and beyond to make our stay perfect as so many others. We will see you soon!
Hi Shanna- It pleases me to hear that your stay was enjoyable in so many ways. Looking forward to your family returning in the future.
The condo and property worked out for our family. The pool was pretty small and rather warm. we were staying during record high heat so really needed to be in water most of the time. The condo could use some bedding and spare blankets especially since there’s a pull out. Overall great time and we would certainly return and rent again. Thank you.
Hi Linda- I'm glad that you had a great time. Sorry about the spare bedding, it should be in the room. If you had let me know, I could have sent housekeeping in with it.
Next time ?
Directly on the sand! Don't risk your life crossing a 4 lane highway at other resorts, just step off the verandah at The Pelican Grand and you're there! Only a short distance to famed Las Olas Blvd., the Rodeo Drive of Fort Lauderdale for shopping and dining adventures!
Business center in lobby with computers and printer. O2K lounge for cocktails and quick meals. Ocean's 2000 on-site for upscale dining and Sunday Brunch. A perfect location if you're departing on a cruise, families with kids, or for business professionals.
