Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel, accommodations, food, rooms, spa all amazing. Poolside was fantastic although they stopped serving alcohol a little early for our group! Brooke was lovely attentive and kept her running pretty good. I had an 80minute massage by Jaun Carlos and it was really the best I have ever had. Customer service excellent....

Visited on my 70th birthday. The view of the ocean and golf course was absolutely breathtaking . This resort is first rate all the way from the cozy fireplace to the palatial bathrooms !! We felt like royalty in our plush bathrobes and could've stayed here forever. Before we left we toured the infinity pool and cabana area. The view...

The perfect place for a family stay. Very attentive service and a great system of shuttles. Close to the resort hotel if you want to walk to spa, workout classes or coffee. Very quiet and secluded with fabulous views of the golf course and ocean. Gourmet Kitchen is fully equipped with Wolfe appliances for cooking and entertaining. We love the...

Pelican Hill really is as amazing as the brochures say. They have great restaurants. The spa is wonderful. The pools are beautiful. What can I say? My only complaint is the cost, but you have to know that going into it.

We stayed at the resort for 4 days as part of a larger group. The room & scenery were beautiful, but the food & food servers were shockingly bad. We spent most of our time by the pool, but struggled to get a server to return to us to even get drink orders. The service was also very slow. We...

This resort is beyond belief. It reminds me of an Italian estate. My room was exquisite with a fireplace, a very comfortable bed, and an beautiful bathroom. The pool and its adjoining restaurant look like a Roman palacio. I was attending a meeting and the catering cuisine was excellent. Before I returned home, I had dinner in the restaurant and...

It's hard to oversell how amazing Pelican Hill is. We've stayed twice in the past six months, and both times I didn't want to leave. The bungalows feel so private and secluded, I forget that I'm at a resort. Then, I call to order room service, and remember just how incredible the service is, and how on top of their...

An incredibly beautiful resort. However, the staff make the experience. Exceptionally polite and accommodating. For our group, Matt Rodriguez, was the stand out. A natural entertainer, so eager to make our stay as good as it can be, we will sincerely miss him. Thanks Matt!
