I didn’t like that the room looked like the it never been cleaned. The glass was filthy the glasses had prior drinks in the and mouth lipstick on them and the ground was completely filthy. I emailed the hotel yet they never responded back to me. Completely unprofessional to me

The property was very nice and elegant! This place is a must stay!

Was cold and thermostat did not respond to changes

Amazing property and great service. We had great long weekend.

Room was beautiful and the hotel staff was very accommodating.

Spa was excellent! Staff was friendly - clean - first class

Our experience at Pelican Hill was fabulous right from the start. Upon check in we were upgraded to a suite..with a view of the ocean. The accommodations were beautiful. Side note:The bedding was amazing! Loved the breakfast by the pool as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This property rates high for luxury, amazing staff and incredible location...can't wait to come back!

It was great stay except for the weather. Food was great at the Golf club but room service food was not recommendable. It also include little too high tip of 22% + delivery fee.
