This venue is hands down the most beautiful venue in Fort Lauderdale. It's no wonder why they do numerous weddings per year. The staff is exceptional, professional, and easy to work with. and I would recommend this venue to all.

Janeth is an all star! She made our planning very easy. She's very responsive and easy to work with. We couldn't have pictured our wedding any better and would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for an intimate beach wedding. Excellent food, service and vibe that we couldn't find anywhere else. Chris & Kristi

Amazing venue! On ft. lauderdale beach there are not any hotels that compare with the Pelican for those that want a beautiful and intimate wedding along the beach of ft. lauderdale. We did our wedding on the South Rooftop and had our cocktail hour on the Verandah and Reception in the Atlantic Pavilion. The pictures from our wedding are BEAUTIFUL - views from the rooftop cannot be beat. Our guests loved the hotel because it feels like a secluded resort but is still close to downtown and beach place if your guests want to go into town. Janeth was an awesome wedding coordinator and the entire wedding staff was very helpful and on-point. Janeth was great with communicating and getting back to me throughout the entire wedding planning process - she was also very honest about recommendations on local vendors which was hugely helpful and saved my wedding day! thank you!

The Pelican is a true slice of heaven in every way. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and never stepped foot at the Pelican until the week of my wedding. After researching many venues, i came across the Pelican then spoke with Janeth. Besides the beauty of the resort, Janeth pretty much sold me. She is THE BEST coordinator a bride could ever want or ask for. She is so helpful, and quick to respond to the questions i had prior to the wedding.

The Pelican itself is magical. Words cannot describe the beauty of it, and staff became our friends. They were all so friendly and just awesome. Our whole group of 30 had such a wonderful time. We will be back over and over again. It is Perfect in every single way possible.

We had an intimate wedding, small group. Coordinated a luncheon on a Friday with the Manager of Ocean 2000 for a group of 20. Food was awesome, presentation was lovely, they accommodated us in every way. We were even running late and still accommodated such a big party without a fault.

Trying to coordinate was the iffy part as everything was done via email, and Ricardo was not the most responsive, but he is a very busy man...however, at the end it all worked out.

Will go back to enjoy their breathtaking venue and beach views, delicious foods and awesome hospitality!

Janeth was wonderful to work with. Since this was a destination wedding, and we were not able to visit the venue prior to the wedding, we had a lot of questions. Janeth always got back to us quickly and was very helpful. On the days leading up to the wedding she really brought everything together and was flexible with some last minute changes.

The entire staff at The Pelican was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We especially loved our bartender!

The only disappointment was the quality of the rooms. For the price, we were expecting the rooms to be nicer. They are a little outdated. However, our view was amazing!

I have nothing but positive things to say about this venue. Janeth, the coordinator, was ABSOLUTELY fantastic and made sure that the entire day was a total breeze. We met with Janeth many times prior to our wedding, as well as emailed a gazillion times, with a side of numerous phone calls. She was extremely pleasant every single time. She also helped with tips and ideas for some things we had no idea on. My mother and I didn’t hire a wedding coordinator and we did it all ourselves, and Janeth actually thought we were the planners at first! Janeth was there on the Sunday of the wedding, all the way until Chaz took over at the reception. Chaz was outstanding and made sure everything was smooth and perfect for the reception. He even forced me and my husband to eat! Which is a very good thing bc brides and grooms never wind up eating and oh boy were we starving! Not a single thing went wrong during the entire day at the Pelican Grand, well actually, the ENTIRE weekend was perfect! We had a total of 35 rooms at the hotel, and not one guest had an issue. The entire hotel staff was so friendly and pleasant.

My Husband and I choose The Pelican Grand Beach Resort to have our wedding for several reasons. We both love the ocean and wanted our Rehearsal Dinner, Ceremony, Cocktail, and Reception to all be ocean front. This is one of the only hotels in Fort Lauderdale that offers that. The views are absolutely breath taking. The hotel also offers a more down to earth old Florida feel vs. the Trendy South Beach style hotels that were more appropriate for our Bachelor/Bachelorette Weekends!.

Janeth, the Wedding coordinator took over 3 months before the actual wedding. We hit a few bumps in the road due to the previous coordinator not documenting some of our confirmed requests. Janeth accommodated all of our requests and was extremely efficient throughout the process. A lesson I learned is "Have EVERYTHING documented.. large and small". You never know when your wedding might change hands.

We dined in the restaurant for lunch and dinner several times before the wedding and we were never disappointed. Chef Jessica creates exceptional tasting food in a beautiful presentation. Our favorites are the Cuban Sandwich (We had mini ones at the Wedding.. best Cuban Sandwich in Florida.. even our Reverend Eddie Rodriguez who is Cuban agreed!) The Mash Potato Martini Bar was also a hit with our guests! Chaz the Food and Beverage manager was also a pleasure to work with throughout the process and during the Wedding. Request Paul the bartender if you can.. he is the best one there!

As for booking rooms.. we blocked the entire second floor for our Wedding party and Family. Each suite is connected by the same balcony. This was super convenient and fun for our weekend wedding. My only advice would be to ensure you can book all the rooms for 2 nights before agreeing to this block. This was our only headache and could have been avoided. If you can, deal with Ashley and Britt at the front desk, they were extremely professional and efficient.

My husband and I will definitely be returning to the Pelican Grand in the future to Relax, Dine and reminisce about the Happiest Day of our lives!!

Beautiful venue for my intimate wedding with a guest list of under 20 people! We had the wedding and the reception in the same cozy A-frame house that overlooked the beach. The best selling point: the feeling of being at the beach, but with the luxury of air conditioning!
