It has been around 12 years since i had stayed at this resort and the place has not changed a bit. Room was very outdated and not very clean. Such a shame as the view is magnificent. Will not be staying here again.

we have been staying at pelican sands now for the last 23 years. We first went there for our honeymoon and have been going there at least once a year since.
The managers Jayne and rob are very helpful and freindly and always willing to go the extra mile for you. Pelican sands is right on the beach with no road inbetween. It is only one of a handful that you can get in Tugan that is right on the water. We have stayed in probably most rooms there and they are all good. Most of the rooms are renovated nicely. It is on a nice and fairly quiet stretch of beach and has a bbq area if you want to make your own bbq while enjoying the beautiful views. We will keep on coming to pelican sands as it holds wonderful memories for us.

Room Tip: It is good to have a room with both bedrooms on beach front then you have a view from all of your rooms, and a fantastic view of the beach to wake up to.

Pelican Sands is clean & comfortable in a fantastic absolute beachfront position, close to shops, with views to die for. Management could not have been more accommodating. Excellent BBQ area and pool. Great value for money - we'll be back!!

I have stayed at this resort 3 times, on each occasion for business visits. I have always found the rooms clean and well cared for. The managers (Jayne and Rob) are a very friendly, cheerful, and hard working couple who do their utmost to make everyone's stay as pleasant as possible.
The property is the tallest building in this area and if you are on 8th or 9th floors, you will not be overlooked by other properties. The views are excellent.
This is an absolute beachfront hotel and leaving the garden behind it will put you straight onto gold coast beach, which I have never seen busy
There are a couple of drawbacks to staying here, If you are on foot, it's about a 15 minute walk north to get to a grocery shop. There are, however, bus stops within 5 minutes walk which will take you north to robina or south to tweed heads. The bus routes also include the airport and taking a 761 will bring you to and from the airport. these buses run every 30mins except in the very early morning or late evening.
The other drawback is the airport. This hotel is directly opposite the airport and some may worry about the noise. I have never found this a problem, particularly since the airport closes between about 10.30pm and 6am. But it is a consideration.
I've stated at other places on the Gold Coast, but always come back to Pelican Sands. I think it is excellent value for money.
There is no restaurant at this hotel.
If you ask nicely, the manager may give you a lift back to the airport, but there is no airport bus as such. It is a 5 minute journey to the airport on the local 761 bus or by taxi.

Room Tip: High is best unless you hate planes flying past your window!
