Overall: Had an enjoyable stay at Pelican Bay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The property is well maintained. The location of this resort can't be beat. It's right next door to Port Lucaya Marketplace where there are many restaurants, bars and shops. I would recommend this resort to friends who are value conscious and not overly picky about...

Husband and I bought a Groupon for $350 each direct flight from Cincinnati and 4 nights at Pelican Bay. Very nice facility, the room was huge and beautiful, comfy king size bed, large living room area, minifridge and espresso maker. Only drawback was that the hot water heater in our room needed resetting daily, but once the maintenance man showed...

This hotel is beautiful. Our room overlooks onto the bay. It's so relaxing and serene. The people working here are really friendly and willing to help. We would definitely like to come back. The staff here is very friendly and very knowledgeable as to places to visit and things to see.

The hotel and staff were very excellent, from the first moment we walked through the main doors of hotel, to delicious breakfast served daily to our departure. Every single staff member made you feel so welcoming.

My son & I just spent five days at Pelican Bay. We were completely in awe of this resort. From our friendly, warm welcome to our stunningly beautiful suite we impressed all the way. Sabora was good, Bones was a blast. To be honest, I was a bit hesitant about booking this trip, but now can't wait do it all...

I visited the Bahamas on a five day trip and had the pleasure of staying at the Pelican Bay Hotel. The hotel is located right next to Port Lucaya and the center of all activities, restaurants etc. The pelican sits on canal so it doesn't have a view of the ocean but the views are still amazing. The rooms were...

Purchased a Groupon for this trip. It is a great value. The location is central to all activities, restaurants and the straw market. There's no need for transportation as everything is in walking distance. Pelican Bay does not have it's own beachfront but there is a complimentary Ferry Service (which happened to be out of service the week we were...

We purchased this trip in Groupon almost a year in advance, because we just could not pass up the deal. The resort sits on the bay and has a beautiful ocean view. We were close to shopping at the Port Lucaya straw market, the casino at Treasure Bay, and many other things to do. The room we had was on...
