Excellent location - our room was on 3rd floor & the view from the balcony was amazing with sun most of the day & beautiful sunsets . We used the bikes to explore surrounding areas & ventured out on a tandem kayak which was fantastic with the water being so calm . The room & balcony were actually better than the photos online looked with comfy bed & outside chairs. The tiki bar was a little disappointing having run out of IPA & unable to serve a Diet Coke due to problem with equipment- I was however given a complementary bottle of water! The prices were quite expensive but this seems typical of many places in the Keys!

This resort has a very relaxed vibe. The rooms are older but a decently maintained. You check in at the sister resort next door and are able to take advantage of the amenities of both properties. The gentleman at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. The ocean view balcony was private and wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay here. We ate lunch at the tiki bar which seemed to be a little short staffed or chaotic but it really wasn't a problem. The food was fine and we enjoyed sitting out there. Also enjoyed seeing a Manatee drinking fresh water from a pipe at the marina. Have stayed here in the past and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Pelican Cove Resort in early December 2022 for my wife's 50's birthday and had a great time. The resort is small but very clean with great location and views. Ankit was very helpful and polit when he checked us in. The housekeeping staff was also great when we needed extra pillows and coffee. Every Thursday morning there are free fishing lessons at the resort and the instructor was great! There are free bikes available to ride so we rode them to breakfast every morning. There are a lot of great restaurants within walking/biking distance and there is also a free shuttle that runs from 3-10 that we use almost every night. The shuttle would normally pick us up within 10-15 minutes and most of the drivers were very friendly. The Postcard Inn is one of the sister resorts and is about a 5 minute walk next door and has two great pools and a couple of restaurant options. If you want to have all of the action out your door then I would suggest staying at the Post Card Inn. We rented a boat one day from A1A and all of the staff were very helpful and the boat was great. We rented a center console and it had a GPS/depth with great tracks on it so you would know where to go and not go.

I am a diamond level member with Hilton and Ambassador Elite level member with Marriott. I reached top tier on both common hotel brand and every time I got excellent hotel service from both Hilton and Marriott. This time I picked Pelican Cove since there is big diving center next to Pelican Cove resort. One thing surprised me is the service from this Pelican hotel is super super good. I met one guy named Ankit from frontdesk and he gave me excellent experience. Ankit is very polite, hospitable, welcoming, and helpful. He knows exactly what you might need. He knew I was going to the beach, so he prepared towels for me in advance. He knew that I would go diving, and would ask me in advance if I needed late checkout. He knew that I had just returned from the beach, and Ankit would prepare drinks for me in advance. I never had this good experience from both Hilton and Marriott. Love this hotel and love the service that Ankit offered us. Thank you all!

It was one of the best experience and places we have been to in tropical USA. ✨️ of course it cad its waves, but you can't go into the Keys and be on a different vibe. Roll with it!!! Very clean and natural to the Keys. People who work amd run it, are amazing!! Especially Maribelle, Cpt Patrick,Emilio, and the cleaning crew. A must go!

Not sure where to start so I’m going to start with the moment I arrived I jumped out the van and entered the lobby to check in my room there was a gorgeous young lady by the name of Racquel she was assisting a couple parties before me which she did nicely and quickly seems as though she knows the area pretty well and the site as well directing the party before me to breakfast spots near by letting them know what there able to do mean while inbetween she kindly spoke to me and the party she was assisting and asked if we’d like to try this sample that they had in the front at the time which was a drink that tasted very good, she gave us a cup as we waited for her to assist us which gave me the comfort right away as she quickly multi task and finalize the assistance of the party in front of me. Once she got to me right away she said that she apologized for me waiting which I told her no problem I saw that she was there alone and making magic happen while being calm cool and collected for such a young person I gatta say she dominated the patience game with ease I must say whom ever trained her must be proud. Meanwhile after handing me my check in package that white teeth smile was the greatest as I turned my back to head to my room. My team all agrees that she was a Rock star and if we ever come back to the Keys we will be staying here again. This young lady should be the face and commercial of the company she’s a very awesome people person and very knowledgeable person as to where it doesn't sound robotic like most places it feels genuine as she explains everything to u.
