STAY SAFE, START LIVING

Your health is our utmost priority. The Pelican Grand team is committed to protecting the wellbeing of our guests and team members by providing a comfortable and safe environment. Our team has been fully trained on the importance of upholding the highest level of sanitation standards and we’re taking every precaution to protect our guests, community, and staff. We have made several adjustments to our hotel operations to ensure your safety.

Our team has diligently implemented all safety precautions recommended by the CDC and in accordance with state and county guidelines. Even so, it is impossible to eliminate all risks of exposure to infectious disease. If you have specific questions or concerns that are not addressed in the materials provided, please reach out to us at info@pelicanbeach.com.

Due to our heightened safety measures, some facilities or services may not be available, but we’re committed to making your stay as comfortable as possible with our award-winning service. These are our enhancements to our current cleanliness standards:

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES


We understand that you want to experience more than the resort when you travel. We also know that venturing out looks a little different than it used to. These are our tips for making the most of Fort Lauderdale while also caring for your personal health and safety.

Local Activities

There is always something to do in Fort Lauderdale. You can visit the Everglades, take a water taxi all over the Fort Lauderdale waterways, see live pink flamingos, hang out with butterflies or cuddle a tiger cub. Then, head to Miami’s Wynwood district for some inspiring street art.

ENHANCED CLEANLINESS STANDARDS


Our hotels use cleaning products and protocols which meet EPA guidelines and are approved for use and effective against viruses, bacteria and other airborne pathogens. We are working with our vendors, distribution partners and suppliers to ensure an uninterrupted supply of these cleaning supplies and the necessary PPE. 

Your peace of mind is important to us – if you have additional questions or concerns please reach out to our Front Desk at frontdesk@pelicanbeach.com or 954-568-9431.
