We stopped to ask for towels and expected that the young man would find us chairs and set us up (other resorts of this caliber do that service for their guests) not here. No one ever approached us to order drinks or food. They were...More

We always eat here when we are staying at Pelican Hill. They have a great breakfast buffet but can also make something à la carte. Lunch is also wonderful!! I have two daughters who are vegan and they are always pleased with their choices.

An incomparably fun and intriguing place to dine, the Coliseum Pool & Grill overlooks the "scene" at the strikingly iconic Coliseum Pool, back-dropped by the Pacific Ocean. American favorites on the superbly prepared menu runs the gamut from pizzas, panini and sandwiches to seafood dishes, pastas, specialty salads and even smoothies.
