Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This hotel was close to many activities. You can walk to Pier 60 where they have entertainment at sunset. There are many restaurants close as well for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The beach is right across the street as well as a close by gym and plenty of areas to walk.
The rooms were kept very clean. The staff was always friendly.There is currently construction going on across the street but I did not find that effected our trip.
I would recommend this hotel for a great family vacation.

Room Tip: I would request a higher floor so that you can enjoy the sunset from outside your room.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly, and the room itself was cheerful, nicely maintained, good sized, and I liked the decor.

The biggest issue for me was noise: there is a large construction project going on right across the street, and they start early and work Saturdays. Add to that little sound insulation so that you can hear the people speaking in the room next door, the TV, motorcycles on the main drag, and sometimes drunk guests yelling, and it was too much for me. I agreed to stay two nights and cancelled the remaining three, and they were very accomodating about this.

I am not sure what the hotel can do about this, I don't know how you would soundproof the units and they can't control the construction noise.

Room Tip: Be aware that there are two units (123 and 124) that are on the path from the office to the elevator...

Dear Ann Goggin,

We apologize that your stay with us was less than satisfactory due to the noise. As for the street noise, and construction across the street that is beyond our control. We are working on our rooms, and hoping to eliminate the noise between rooms. On a better note we are pleased that you found our staff friendly, and our rooms pleasant and well maintained. Again, we are terribly sorry that your experience here was not overall a good one, but we invite you again to give us another try on your next vacation. We at Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC., greatly appreciate your feedback, as it helps us to improve and provide a better experience.

Checked into a poolside room and a large group checked in above us. Expressed our concern about the noise they might cause right away to the front desk and was assured if the noise got out of control it would be addressed. From 2:40 AM- 4 AM it was louder than words can describe. Front desk is closed overnight, but apparently there is a security guard that is there somewhere but that didn't seem to help at all. Reported it to the front desk in the morning and asked for a move or room for us or for the loud group. That was not accommodated. The front desk advised the guard would be parked outside that area of the Pelican that next night. It was so loud at 3 AM (when the bars close) that people from the other building were outside screaming out their windows that they were going to call the police in an attempt quiet the rowdy guests down. Again went to the front desk in the morning, and was assured it would not happen again. It never got better. On check out, they said- "we hope you return", and I advised it was doubtful because of their lack of control for the noise. They didn't even offer a discount. They require payment in full upon check on so you have no recourse. There is no chance to sleep late after you have been up with the noise from 2:30 AM- 4 AM because the major construction right across the way starts very early. They claim to be a family friendly resort but unless your family does not mind being up for most of the night I would steer clear of this place. Would not stay here again no matter what.

Dear Sunshine 181,

We apologize that your stay with us was less than satisfactory due to the noise at the hotel. It appears that during your stay we definitely failed when it comes to controlling the noise. While we try to emphasize to our guests making reservations for March that it is the Spring Break season, we agree that we can make more of an effort to control the noise. My staff and I have reviewed your comments and have taken appropriate actions to resolve the issue. In addition, we are re-evaluating our security processes to ensure that type of issue does not occur in the future. Again, we are terribly sorry that your experience here was not a good one, and management invites you personally to give us another try. We, at Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC., greatly appreciate your feedback as it helps us to improve and provide a better experience.

Mu husband and I stayed at Pelican Point for two weeks after booking on the internet. I am always apprehensive about internet bookings because the hotels/resorts usually aren't as nice as they say they are. Pelican Point was! Our room was fine, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was nicely equipped, even a cork screw. The front office was friendly and answered any questions with a smile. While we didn't need maintenance, those gentlemen were seen assisting guests with minor problems promptly. The pool was clean and heated. The housekeeping staff was also accommodating as far as coming back if we needed a later time. Pelican Point is within walking distance of the Pier, restaurants, and shops. There was a lot of noise from the condos being built across the street, but that is progress. Oh, the staff also does a cook out every other Friday for the guests which is a nice touch. We would stay here again.

The employees were real nice. We were in unit 228. The beds were full size. Beds were very uncomfortable. The one bed made a loud noise every time you moved. Woke me up every time I turned over in the night. The futon in the kitchen area was the only seating & it was terrible. This unit needs some kind of comfortable seating. I brought in an outside chair off the balcony to sit in when watching tv. Also would have liked something to cook on. I am diabetic & I have to eat something before taking medication. Would have been nice to be able to make & egg. Would not recommend this unit to anyone that I know.

Dear Helanator,

I would like to personally apologize for the series of unfortunate incidences that you experienced during your stay with us. We continually try to do our very best for all of our guests, but unfortunately sometimes we may fall short of every expectation. The rooms are equipped with a microwave, and it is disappointing to see that our recent refurbishments did not meet your expectations. We will look into the bedding issue that you have noted, in an attempt to correct and improve our rooms. Again, we are terribly sorry that your experience here was not overall a good one, but we invite you again to give us another try on your next vacation. We at Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC., greatly appreciate your feedback, as it helps us to improve and provide a better experience.

The unit we were in was poolside so it was very nice. Price is affordable. The noise is irritating though. On top of LOTS of traffic, there is a new hotel being built across the street. They are in the process of doing the ground work ( drilling piles and such). It starts at 7:30 am till 5:00 pm. If you are gone all day it's no big deal, if not you won't be sitting poolside listening to the ocean.
The only problem we had was that I booked a room that could technically hold 6 ppl, but put that there were 3 occupants. They moved us to a smaller rm. I was not impressed. Was not offered a discount or anything. Both rooms( booked and used) were poolside so I sucked it up. Very clean though.
