We enjoyed our stay in Pelican’s Paradise. The condo was well appointed with great views of the pool and ocean from the living room, master bedroom and balconies. The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil and gadget you might need. We loved having beach chairs, umbrellas and a cooler to use at our disposal. The complex is quiet and the pool has plenty of beach chairs. The location allowed to get to the many beautful beaches, grocery stores and restaurants easily. The reservation process was simple and flawless. We love St. Croix and can’t wait to return.
The location was amazing the view was spectacular,people friendly everything that the advertisement said was true and then some. We will visit again and stay there again we loved it the place was great.
Had a wonderful stay at Pelican’s Paradise in July. The condo is very spacious and equipped with everything we needed. Very comfy. The kitchen is new with lots of dishes, pots and silverware and all the basic appliances. Even the cupboard was well stocked with spices from previous guests. We made chocolate chip cookies one night and fresh mango smoothies every night. Lucky for us I think July must be peak mango season with locals selling fresh mangoes along the road side. The breakfast bar was great for a quick snack but we liked eating breakfast, lunch and dinner out on the outdoor gallery when we weren’t out on the town. The view from the kitchen, large living room and gallery look out over the tropical grounds and on to the beach and ocean. We used the gas grill out on the gallery to grill up some steaks and burgers and hot dogs several times.
The condo is an end unit with lots of windows to catch all the ocean breezes, we only ran the AC occasionally. When the AC was on we couldn’t even hear it running inside or outside and plenty of cold air. Very quiet and no walk-by traffic in front of the condo. This condo is also two-story with the kitchen, living room and large dining room on the lower floor and bedrooms on the top floor. There is also a powder room downstairs along with nice full sized washer and dryer in the condo made quick work of our laundry. Everything in the condo was very clean and fresh and new looking.
The master bedroom is huge and has its own private gallery through these large glass sliding doors which also overlooks the palm trees and looks out to the beach and ocean. We loved waking up every morning and looking out at the ocean. And the private master bath is like a spa with a whirlpool tub, large shower big enough for dancing in, and lots of big fluffy towels. We were surprised to have his and hers walk-in closets, the first time we’ve had that in a condo.
There was a notebook full of helpful information on the condo and the island and restaurants in the living room. We used the snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels and cooler in the condo several days to go explore different beaches on the island. One night we went to jump-up in downtown Christiansted and had great street vendor food. We also liked the Mango Melee a week later with more street vendor food.
The condo is centrally located on the North side of the island, very quiet setting but only 5 minutes from down town Christiansted, close to grocery stores, and easy to get to anywhere else. There’s a short drive through a residential neighborhood to the entrance that is shared between the Palms hotel and the Pelican Cove Condos. The condo grounds are landscaped with lush tropical trees and plants and the buildings are classic Caribbean. Unlike many other condos we’ve stayed at Pelican Cove Condos have a very resort like feel from the moment we drove in. The condos are right on the Pelican Cove white sand palm tree lined beach. The beach in front of the condos is huge and lounge chairs are provided at the beach. The pool is huge as well and no chlorine or salt with lap lanes and a waterfall and a nice shaded cabana for lunch (bring your own though). There is also a large hot tub at the pool.
The adjacent Palms hotel a short stroll away has a nice restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and has entertainment on Sundays and Monday nights. The coral shelf just off the beach at the condos makes swimming there not possible. But that’s no problem as a little further walk down the beach in front of the hotel restaurant is fine for swimming and snorkeling.
We are already planning our next trip to St Croix and Pelican’s Paradise and it can’t come soon enough.
