This was our second time staying at Pelican. It will be the last. I'm sure I can find something in this price range that isn't so congested.
The beach was goofy! One can hardly get to the water without walking on towels and ducking under umbrellas. It really is that bad.
The place was booked to capacity and the elevators were always busy. Making things worse, one of them never worked the entire time we were there. Never any maintenance workers fixing it either. Making things worse, it smelled like people had vomited in them.
Nice pool, but good luck getting a chair unless you get up early to stake your ground.
Our unit, #2010, was nice and clean. Well equipped. Only complaint was the king bed. The mattress should have been replace a long time ago. Kind of like sleeping in a hammock.
Some of my complaints can be addressed by the owners and staff. However, the beach congestions is just something you'll have to deal with if you stay here.
