Pelican Sands Reviews


Have stayed here before & we just love the location right on the beach & it is at the quiet end of the Gold Coast which is great. Enjoy watching the planes land & take off something we don\'t get to see. Everything you need is close by. We will be back.

Liked: Friendliness of the managers & staff
Disliked: Not having 2nd shower as ensuite had a spa bath which we didnt use.

The 703 apartment was particularly nice, last year we were in 503 - I found 5O3 to be a \"tired\" looking place. 7O3, was bright and the bedding was fresh, attractive and the whole place had a fresh,modern updated feel. unlike 5O3. Our stay in 7O3 was very comfortable, we were down there to relax so we made good use of the apartment and spent most of the time there, if not on the beach. I shall rebook next year and will make sure I do not book 5O3. I do not know what the other apartments are like, but would like to comment on how lovely 7O3 was ..both my sister and I said it had obviously been updated and this was so very much appreciated, it added comfort to our stay, which we enjoyed immensely. Both my sister and I work full time, every year we take a week off and we chose Pelican Sands. We wish to keep this on our \"to do\" list every year from here on in. Many thanks to Jane, who was very welcoming and helpful. She cared about whether or not we had enjoyed our time there, which we found very considerate and I did mention to her that we thought the apartment was wonderful and well worth the money we had paid for our stay there. Thanking you ..until the next time 2012 October.

Liked: everything about 7O3 and the new look in the downstairs area. 7O3 was a nice, comfortable, clean updated apartment.

Location was excellent with all rooms having a beach front view as advertised. Path near back of hotel facing the ocean has a path that takes you right onto the beach for miles of walking on soft, clean sand. Great outdoor pool. Rooms included washer and dryer, complete kitchen cookware (except for coffee pot), hair dryer, ironing board,etc.
The lift was working intermittently during the day, due to a renovation. However this was widely advertised so customers were aware of this and rooms were slightly discounted accordingly.
The hotel is older and is clean. Some rooms could begin to get a bit of an update.

Liked: View, pool, rooms, comfy beds, ceiling fans
Disliked: It would have suited our needs to have a pet friendly hotel as our son and wife have a dog. It would have made it easier to have the dog in the room for short periods.
