I stayed in the suite 441 ( i think) over looking the water during my wedding weekend and it was lovely. The suite was clean and comfortable...the rustic decor is very inviting. Love Pelican Bay Hotel's ambiance.

After a few room changes (pay the extra for the estate or suite rooms, so much nicer then the badic) few are having a great experience. The staff and front desk staff are great, friendly and accommodating. Great location to harbor, food. Drinks, pools, beach. All you need.

The Pelican Bay was one of two hotels which was open to guests following hurricane Matthew. The hotel got in touch with us prior to arrival to warn us about the lack of amenities and facilities that we may encounter in Freeport which we appreciated. The hotel was in great shape and would not have thought it suffered any damage...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

We stayed here as part of a travel package through Vacation Express, so my expectations were low. We were on the ground floor with the pool and Bones Bar right out our back slider. Room was spacious and bed much more comfortable than I have seen on other reviews. I will agree the decor was a little outdated and mismatched...
