Hat a great place to go hang out and chat with friend or family member. I could have stayed out on the balcony all afternoon. Best hot chocolate in town. They do a great lunch menu, but today we just did hot chocolates and coffee and it hit the right spot for us.

Was at Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa for a 2 day conference. The food was great, the service excellent, the location brilliant for a conference but it was sadly let down by the state of the room we stayed in. I don't know if this is indicative of all the rooms but I don't think so, as everything else...

All the staff were helpful and friendly, from the reception staff to the wait staff at the large & clean restaurant. Our 1 bedroom spa room was comfortable, spacious and had a lovely balcony where we enjoyed lunch each day overlooking the huge pool area and to our surprise we also had a kitchenette in our room. During our midweek...

We booked here to attend a funeral & only stayed 1night. But wished we could have stayed more to enjoy the facilities. We were given a lovely 2brm appartment on the 10th floor with an awesome view. Got to use the pool facilities & also had the breakfast downstairs in the restaurant. Staff were very friendly & would definitely stay...

Wanted a few days away in a rush, as per normal, last minute stuff!

We stayed at the resort to play golf and were very pleased with our room. We had a terrif view over the golf driving range and lake. Also the room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was well presented and tasty. Even though the resort is a little out of the tourist area there are some other places to eat...
