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.

    I am a local here who visited Bones Bar last night at this hotel and while in the pool, someone stole my shoes. I reported the matter to the hotel’s security and management who were both very nonchalant and refused to assist me in reviewing the cameras to see who stole my shoes. Security made me aware that it is common for people to steal others properties at that particular bar. I then had to go to the nearest police station barefoot to report this incident that took place on the hotel’s property.This hotel needs better security and a more friendlier staff!!

    Awesome experience

    I stayed at Pelican Bay for a few days and enjoyed the experience very much. I am a travel agent, so i do have a fair amount of experience with hotels and this one exceeded expectations. The entire front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. All of the employees around the property were also top notch. The rooms and the property were both immaculate and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I would highly recommend the property and would very much like to stay there again.

    Beautiful Hotel, and staff that go above and beyond

    We stayed at Pelican for 3 nights. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite overlooking the bay. The suite was very spacious, and immaculate. There was plenty of space if you're traveling with friends or family to entertain. It had a wet bar, refrigerator, microwave, Nespresso machine, and dishes and glassware. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious, with plenty of room for toiletries. We took the Balearia ferry from Fort Lauderdale to Freeport. It was a comfortable ride, but when we were to return to Fort Lauderdale, the ferry was canceled due to windy weather. It makes one trip a day, and doesn't run every day. I got the notification the afternoon before, but didn't see it until 5:30pm, because we were at the beach. We went to the front desk for assistance, and Kimberly Russell and Racquell Harvey were working, and they made arrangements for us to get home the following day. We would have been delayed for a few more days if it weren't for their help. They both were very accommodating and knowledgeable, and always very pleasant and friendly. I would definitely return to the Pelican for their excellent customer service. All the staff are very friendly, always smiling, and the hotel is gorgeous! The food at Sabor is delicious, and it's convenient to the Marketplace.

    The grand suite was amazing with a unique look. The balcony is spacious, and the sight was to die for. It was a nice touch to get fruit and pastry basked delivered in the morning. Martinis in the swimming pool bar are some of the best I ever had. The food was delicious too. Nice water taxi service too.
