Service was spectatular, delivered in a safe and caring manner. Our experience was relaxed and luxurious as we sensed that our health and well-being were paramount, that staff truly cared about us and were focused on making our time at Pelican Hill memorable in only the most exceptionally gratifying and enjoyable way. We were so impressed with our Monday late lunch that we booked rooms for an extended upcoming birthday celebration. We eagerly look forward to being so well cared for once again.
