We stayed at Pelican Resort on a timeshare exchange for two weeks. We stayed in two different apartments, the first a studio sleeping up to 4 people was a little dark due to the painted cane decor and a room divider but had some limited ocean views from the balcony. It was a liitle dated but in good condition with a full kitchen. The second was a more modern 1 bedroom accomodation which was considerabley superior due to it's light and airy decor. it also had better ocean views. The resort has a great beach from which you can watch the yachts come and go from Simpson Lagoon. The staff were warm and welcoming. There were good swimming pools but the highlight was hanging out at the beach bar at sunset looking for the green flash!
