The Pelican Grand is the only Fort Lauderdale resort with a lazy river -- there's also a heated pool
AAA 4-Diamond hotel received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence
The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is approximately 20 minutes from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Valet parking $35 per day.
Set on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach, the AAA 4-Diamond Pelican Grand Beach Resort delivers family friendly amenities -- like its lazy river and heated pool -- in an Old-Floridian atmosphere complete with a Key West style veranda, rocking chairs and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Yes, there's a 1,600-foot private beach with loungers, towels, inflatables and umbrellas available for guests, but that's not all the Pelican Grand has to offer. The hotel's Ocean 2000 restaurant serves up seafood and small plates with a Latin twist. There's also a cocktail lounge and 1950s-style ice-cream parlor -- plus the on-site rooftop spa, where guests can indulge in Swedish massage, couples massage or a variety of beauty treatments.
Guest rooms are well appointed with Keurig coffee makers, rainfall showers and dual vanities. We recommend upgrading to an Ocean View room for the best views of the water. Suites are also available, featuring separate bedroom and living room areas, as well as private terraces overlooking the water.
Off-site shopping and dining on Las Olas Boulevard is about a 10-minute drive away. Those without cars can rent bikes using the Broward B-cycle sharing system from the nearby stand.
