Not the best trip ever

It hard to give a review only on the resort as this resort is not all inclusive therefore you must travel outside for dinning. The resort itself was as described, nothing fancy but clean. Breakfast was mediocre- step above holiday inn express. Hotel staff were nice, especially one lady that was extra helpful. However, outside the resort everything is very expensive. We paid around $100 each night for dinner - eating chicken wings and quesadillas- we were very surprised at the cost. The beachs that connect to the hotels were not clean, in fact smelled like sewage :( this was also the case when we went snorkeling. We all decided to get out of the water due to the overwhelming smell. There was one beautiful beach called golden rock across the island, this was the highlight of our trip, but note it requires a car or tour to get there as its about a 45 minute commute from the hotel. Gave overall rating of a 3 as doubt we'll be back and had we known about the food + cleanliness of the beaches we would have chosen a different destination.

Excellent short vakay

If you enjoy a quiet, laid back, smaller property, this is the place for you! I don't enjoy the hub hub of the large resorts, so this was perfect for me. The rooms are not fancy, but are clean and spacious, and who wants to spend that much time in your room when you are in the Caribbean. This property is not right on the beach, but there is a ferry (free) that will take you to a very nice beach (about a 10 minute ride). Only one restaurant on site, which BTW was superb, but its just a short walk (5 minutes) to a large market place with straw markets, upscale stores, boutiques, many restaurants and bars, drug store to purchase sundries (snacks, soda, water, etc), and liquor store, plus the ability to sign up for excursions if that's your thing. The staff at the resort were top notch, very friendly and helpful. The first day our bathroom sink was not draining properly -- I told the housekeeper and it was fixed within a couple of hours. There are 3 pools that are very nice. I also felt very safe here. I will definitely return to this resort at some time in the future!

Great Trip

I booked a quick get away and it was great. The Pelican bay at Lucaya is a nice hotel, in a great are by the marina and close to the Marketplace. Lots of restaurant/ food options. Beach across the road is a bit far away but still within walking distance but the hotel has a taxi & boat ferry to Taino beach which is great and fun. (No charge). Business centre is no charge and a choice of DVD rentals at no charge is also available to you. I came with a small child and it was just perfect. It only rained for an hour on our second day and that was it, clear skies! I would definitely come back again.

Memorable Birthday Weekend

The grounds at this resort is breath-taking and well cared for. Various tropical plants and flowers. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful. Your accommodations includes a free bahama mama or yellow bird; pool towel tickets, safe and other daily events. Everyone we encountered were courteous and helpful. Did not try either of the restaurants Flying Fish nor Sabor to rate their services or food. There are 3 pools on the property and about 4 gazebos. A pool is near Sabor which also has a jacuzzi, the other pool is more in the center and there is an infinity pool with a closed swim up bar off the suites' section. The suites are spacious and simply beautiful and worth the extra even though you do not spend most of your vacation in the room. The ferry is not currently running (October).

What's to Love

Pelican Bay at Lucaya is next to the Port Lucaya Marketplace, so you can shop local crafts and duty-free stores.

 

What We'd Change

Pelican Bay is not a hotel with immediate beachfront access that beach fiends love, but a half-mile stretch of beach is only a few steps away.

 

Why You Should Go

This boutique gem is surrounded by activity with two marinas and the nearby beach. You also get three sparkling pools to relax by at the hotel.

Hotel Description

Pelican Bay at Lucaya: Grand Bahamas VIP Experience

Get your vacation days reserved, pack your bags and score the first available seat to Pelican Bay at Lucaya. This Euro-style boutique resort is set between two marinas, just 300 yards from the white sands of two miles of Grand Bahamas coastline. Awarded the "Small Treasures of the Bahamas" by the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Pelican Bay Resort features three swimming pools and overlooks two marinas on one side and the bay on the other.

Let the harbor-side restaurant, Sabor, tempt your taste buds with alluring fusion cuisine that features tropical soups, fresh seafood and an extensive wine list. Stay late at Sabora Bar for after-dinner drinks or check out the local nightlife. And Sabor is handy when you want a nosh while enjoying the main pool overlooking the beach. Don't forget there are two more, so one is sure to be the pool of choice for you.

Rise and shine to the greens of your choice with two 18-hole golf courses less than five minutes from your room. The Lucayan Course features elevated tees, winding fairways and daunting bunkers. The Reef Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., features classic links play. Does your tee-off need a tweaking? Try the nearby Jim McClean School of Golf, offering both indoor and outdoor training facilities complete with classes and computerized swing analysis.

Kids love the nearby Dolphin Swim, while the beachfront water sports center can supply you with snorkel gear, kayaks and Hobie cats, as well as scuba diving gear and deep-sea fishing excursions. And if Lady Luck beckons, you can be sure she's calling from Treasure Bay Casino, just a five minute walk from your luxurious room.

Pelican Bay at Lucaya is a resort intent on your relaxation and even offers in-room massages for those looking to wind way down.
