Are you looking for a place to just get away for a weekend, or for a week or two? How about a nice family vacation in warm, tropical weather? Well then the Pelican Grand Beach Resort is the place for you.

It is Located in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in a perfect location. It’s just a few miles from the airport, right on the beach, and surrounded by many restaurants from all different cultures.

The views from each and every room are amazing. It is an excellent spot for a relaxing, peaceful, and fun vacation. The Pelican Beach is great for anyone. Adults can sip drinks while they float down the Lazy River, lounge on beach chairs in the sun by the pool, and enjoy a lovely back massage in the cabana on the beach. Kids can enjoy the store, the ice cream parlor, and the game room, which is stocked with wonderful board games.

People can also collect shells, beach glass, and other beach treasures, although to some, there is nothing more enjoyable than letting the jets push you while floating down the Lazy River. But everyone can relate to unbelievably good food and services.

There are plenty of places to eat, starting with the resort’s own North Ocean Grill for a peaceful and delicious dinner, and Oceanfront Dining, in case you are too relaxed and would like your food delivered to you. For children, during the day or after dinner, there is The Emporium, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor.

But for those who prefer a healthier lifestyle, there is a workout room located on the 10th floor, equipped with two treadmills, an elliptical, a Stairmaster, and weight-lifting machines.

Some other bonuses are the high-speed internet access, the underground valet parking, the concierge service, and the guest laundry.

No matter your age or personality, you are sure to enjoy your stay at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort!
