At first, you’ll be captivated by our ocean views, but it’s our service that will define your experience. –Tom Donovan, Director of the Resort at Pelican Hill

I still get asked a ton of questions about our venue. This place is dreamy! We are so blessed to have amazing parents who made it possible for us to have our wedding here. We love this place. The service was exceptional. And the cake.. OMG to die for. –Sepideh, Wedding Wire

George Nickels and The Resort at Pelican went above and beyond all expectations on my wedding day. The view is breath-taking, the hotel is glamorous, and the service is unsurpassed. Three months after the wedding, I still have people talking about it. On several occasions, people have told me that the food served was the best wedding food that they had ever had, and I wholeheartedly agree. And the service was like none that I have ever encountered. Never was a cup empty, or a server not to be found, or a request, however great, not met. My husband and I highly recommend this venue to any couple that wants to feel like royalty their wedding day.-Cindy, Wedding Wire
