This place was an extremely nice surprise just coming from the hustle and bustle of Key West . The location had a beautiful view of Florida Bay. It had a few piers with chairs at the end of them to watch the beautiful sunsets. The bay was calm and the atmosphere was like being on a quiet lake. Everyone was friendly, both guests and staff. You could check out canoes or paddle boards at the front desk for a couple of hours at no charge The rooms were comfortable and had all of the amenities that you needed. You just have to leave a form of id and sign your life away...lol. You must go to Snooks on the Bay, just a few doors down. The best seafood we have ever eaten. The key lime pie martinis are amazing. Mrs. Macs for breakfast is right next door. They have breakfast specials that come with a free mimosa. If we ever go back to the Florida Keys I will definitely be back to the Pelican Cottages.

Room tip: Best view of Florida Bay

I'm so glad I didn't let the negative reviews keep me from booking this gem! We stayed in the King Waterfront Suite 2nd Floor. When we were walking to our room, I was disappointed to see the patio didn't face the ocean. But, when we got in the room, I found out that the view from our bed more than made up for that. Had coffee on the beach instead of the patio. Even better! The room had cold AC, and the bathroom was beautiful. Everyone I dealt with on the staff was very friendly and helpful. I emailed a couple of times before the trip with questions. They were answered immediately. The private beach was relaxing, and kayaking was so much fun. If you're looking for a 5-star experience, keep looking. If you want to stay in a friendly, low-key spot with good restaurants, and stores within walking distance, give this place a try.

The concept of the cottages is great. The beach front is lovely with access to snorkelling and kayaks. Ideal location to find food locally. Staff were polite and helpful
The room was small but adequate. It was severely let down by the very noisy air conditioning. We had a choice of either trying to sleep with the noise or trying to sleep in the heat. Neither worked for us. After a sleepless night I asked about upgrade but apparently all the rooms have the same air conditioning units so we had no choice but to check out without a refund for our second night.

We're very sorry to hear that you were disturbed by the a/c, while it is true that all of our have the same type of unit, they were all recently replaced and are the industry standard for operating efficiency and noise levels.

Great location with nice beach an sunset pier. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Very friendly service. We stayed on our way to key west and changed our travel schedule on the way back because we really enjoyed staying at the pelican. Highly recommend!!!

Room tip: Follow the recommendation of the receptionist. Try Mrs. Mac‘s Kitchen😍

Family getaway for a few days in the Keys. The Pelican Key Largo offered simple but comfortable accommodations. The room was clean and spacious. They are on the water and have a beach area with 3 docks you can enjoy incredible sunset views from. There are at least 3 restaurants a very short walk from the property. You can also check out Kayaks at no charge. My only small gripe was that the Kayaks had to be in by 7pm. It may have something to do with lighting, but In the summer the sun sets after 8pm and its much cooler. Anyway, I highly recommend The Pelican Key Largo Cottages.

Thank you for the review. We're very happy to hear that your family was able to gather and relax in our slice of paradise. We hope to welcome you back very soon and as always, thank you for choosing The Pelican. On a side note, the kayaks are required to be off the water by 7pm for guest safety as they do not have lights on them. We hope to welcome you back very soon!
