Spacious rooms, every staff member says hello and is eager to help, excellent food, phenomenal views. Good food, excellent service. We will continue to return. The golf courses are exceptional in terms of the topography and views. The driving range is grass and is free for unlimited use in the afternoons.

Top notch resort with exceptional service

Reviewed 7 october, 2021

We rented a four bedroom villa for 4 adult couples for a week. The architecture, furnishings and grounds throughout the resort are exceptional. The villa was spacious and beautifully appointed with a lovely L shaped patio with a dining table and chairs and chaise lounges, all overlooking the golf course and Pacific ocean. If there was anything we wanted; additional bottled water, more towels, a spatula - they were cheerfully delivered within minutes. We cooked a few meals, ate at both the Coliseum restaurant and the Villa Clubhouse, and utilized Room Service. The staff is professional, warm and gracious. As a group of 8, we utilized the on-resort transportation numerous times and they were prompt and friendly, Housekeeping services were wonderful as well. We utilized the Spa and the Golf Course and experienced the same beautiful accommodations and over the top, warm service everywhere at Pelican Hill. We loved the Villa Clubhouse pool and restaurant as well. The concierge staff is wonderful. I don't know how they do it - there was absolutely nothing that we could complain about! Everyone was enthusiastically responsive, nice, kind, knowledgeable and efficient. None of us wanted to leave, and we all agreed that this is how we would like to live!

Incredible Place

Reviewed 7 october, 2021

The entire grounds are breathtaking and the service in incredible. Our room was spacious with a king bed, sitting area, gas fireplace, along with a nice sized patio with two chaise chairs and a small table with two chairs. The bathroom is oversized with a large soaking tub, walk-in shower, two sinks, and a toilet closet with spray bidet. Our room had a lovely view of the ocean. There is a nice coffee shop off the lobby that also sells sandwiches, ice cream, bakery items, with lovely tables that over look the ocean and the golf course. The spa was very nice with a sauna, steam room, and oversized jacuzzi. It also had a very nice sitting room with hot tea and snacks, and the dressing rooms were well appointed with showers and all amenities you need to freshen up. The pool is beautiful and don't forget, they have another upstairs that faces the ocean for adults only. There is a very nice restaurant at the pool that services salads, sandwiches, and other fresh fair. Enjoy!!

It a great place to relax and eat.we went to coliseum bar and grill. The place has the biggest pool in the world. We took a 4 hour nap at the pool. Next, we went to PELICAN bar and grill and have a Gratiot dinner. I love the hot,tender grill chicken salad and hot ,sweet grill steak. The place has a great ocean view. It so gorgeous watching the sunset


Wonderful experience

This is my first time visiting the pelican hill and it was amazing! All the staff are super friendly and they go above and beyond to make your stay feel wonderful. We booked the garden view and the view is beautiful. We travel with a 7 months baby so we didn’t dine in at the restaurant and instead we ordered room services and tried their market and cafe. The room service is very convenient as you can download their app and order the room service in advance. The filet mignon is a bit over cooked but the cheesecake is to die for. They will set up your meal for you and you can choose to eat in the room or in the balcony. When you are done you can also use the app to request tray pick up. The resort is very quiet and you can just walk around and enjoy the amazing view. There’s not a lot of people which is perfect during this covid period. The market and cafe is perfect for us to grab food and drink and you can choose where you wanna sit and enjoy the amazing view. And with a 7 months old baby we can just go in and out without worrying to disturb others when the baby’s patient is up. And we don’t need to worry about waiting for the food to be served. The bungalow is spacious and it has everything in it. Giant bath tub and shower, lots of drawers and spaces for your wardrobe and there’s coffee, tea, and water. Theres even a electric water boiler which is so convenient. The parking is conveniently across from your bungalow. And their pool is amazing! We didn’t try the restaurant next to the pool as our baby isn’t restaurant ready yet but the view is stunning and we will definitely be back to try it out. We had a very short stay as this is our first time staying out with our baby and the whole experience is amazing and we enjoyed it so much that we would definitely be back for more.
