Good location & spacious room but a little disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but were a little put off when entering the room. We found a pair of underwear on the alarm clock and someones deodorant under the bed. There were no sheets for the trundle bed and the pull out couch was extremely uncomfortable. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the room so we put up with these inconveniences. I feel the actual room was fine but the cleaning was lacking. The last night of our stay a huge cockroach was climbing the wall of the master bedroom! This was it for me. On top of all of this one of the elevators didn't work for half of our stay which was also just an inconvenience but annoying. For the money we paid I was a little disappointed.

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsey, I assure you this is not at all typical of the cleanliness of the Resort Housekeeping team. As you might imagine, we (the owners) are as upset about these mistakes as you are and there is nothing we can do now that you have "put up with these inconveniences". In the future, the better plan would be to contact us immediately or at the very least contact the Resort management with any issues or anything you need at all, so that we may have had the opportunity to make it right for your stay. I have submitted a grievance to management and have passed along your review so that they can make the appropriate adjustments to the Pest Control and Housekeeping teams and in the process insure this does not happen to another guest. Thank you so much for alerting us of these issues and please do give us another try which you will get a 10% discount for the entire rental simply mention this issue when you book it on VRBO. With our sincere appologies George & Lori

My stay was AWESOME! The room was clean, neat, we had enough amenities to satisfy all of our needs.

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect. Located right close to the beach, where we could walk right onto the sands. There was an outdoor and indoor pool. A workout room and bbq grills that we utilized. I can truly say that I would love to return to The Pelican Resort for my next vacation.

Several suggestions I might offer

  • 3 of 5

The property on a whole was great in appearance, here are some things that would be helpful.

A broom so that guest might have away to tidy up and keep sand down.

When you have 7 guest for several days 4 rolls of toilet paper are not enough..more trash bags also would help. Also scissors would be helpful or at least these things should be on the things to bring list. need better direction with dryer as we could not find where the filter was and it caused the clothes to take ALOT more time.. Overall a very nice unit and we had a great time.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you did not find everything you needed in the unit. Let me try and describe some of the issues we face with some items, we have left many brooms and they all seem to get misplaced, or taken, or perhaps broken and thrown out very quickly. The same seems to happen to coffee makers, especially POD coffee makers. Also, we do have clear instructions on our listing to contact the front desk by dialing 0 on the condo phone and requesting anything at all that will make the stay more pleasant and relaxing, therefore towels, toilet paper, trash bags, help with dryer or TV or any other appliance in the condo should have been called into the front desk and they would be happy to assist with any question or concern. Please come back and try our condo once again and mention this reply for a 10% off deal. Again, we are so sorry you did not have everything you needed and we assure you that we do try our best to have available everything we can think of within reason. Thank you so much for taking time to point this out to us so that we can improve the condo for the next visitors. George & Lori

Condo and property were great. Most unfortunate part was the "sea" of unmbrellas.

  • 3 of 5

Property and condo were great. However you were manipulated into renting umbrella and chairs if you wanted to be within 100 feet of the gulf water. Even if you had your own they would not allow in front of rental umbrellas. If this policy was not in place we would certainly be back, but when you factor the additional per day for this rental it puts several other locations in play for same amount with better amenities. Unless this policy is changed we will probably not be back. Again we were more than happy with the condo itself and grounds of the property, it was just the first time in all of our vacations that we walked into a wall of rental unmbrellas at the edge of the water.
