Outrigger Beach Resort

Fort Myers, Gulf Coast Beaches

The hotel

Surrounded by tropical landscape with all rooms just steps away from the stunning white sand beach, this is a sun-lover's paradise! Fort Myers Beach is a great place to catch some of the best sunsets, they are very colourful and great for photos, so make sure you bring your camera. Accommodation is bright and spacious, ensuring a supremely comfortable stay. The sun deck and swimming pool face the Gulf of Mexico, affording wonderful views as you laze the day away. For more active moments, there are water sports on the beach and bicycles for hire. The beach trolley costs just 75c per ride and will transport you to all Fort Myers Beach attractions, including Times Square and the Pier with its selection of restaurants and bars. For a relaxed start to your day head to the Deckside Café for breakfast. For delicious steak, seafood and a fabulous 55-item salad bar however, you need look no further than your own doorstep! Charley's Boat House Grill is a favourite with the locals and the perfect place to end a wonderful day!

My husband and I went for a weekend to this hotel in June. It was a great surprise when we saw and enjoyed the amazing beach just a few steps away. The room is spacious however, the bathroom shower was very hard to close and water was constantly dripping. This is a very simple/moderate, so it is understandable, but like I said, this hotel needs maintenance. It is located in a perfect place for beach lovers. The breakfast is on menu only due to this pandemic issue and nothing extraordinary. In the pool area, there are beautiful tiki huts where you can sit down, relax and have a drink. I'd would stay there again, knowing that I'm not in a 4 or 5 star hotel, but comfortable for a weekend. Read less

Steps from the amazing beach, gorgeous deck with ample seating. The rooms are small and very dated. Paid a lot for what we got but it was July 4th. Hotel Was very busy. I wish the hotel Placed hand sanatizer around. The pool Has multiple gates and everyone was touching them.

On a whim we decided to book 2 nights at The Outrigger to explore the area and see Sanibel. We could not have found a more perfect spot! The location is perfect, staff so nice, the sunsets were unreal! The hotel itself is older but has been updated. Having a kitchenette was perfect. We hit the tiki bar for food one night, then Publix down the street the next. Publix is very close. We can’t wait to go back! It was very clean and not crowded while we were there. It was a nice escape after quarantining for weeks. We tools lots of precautions, but really it was easy to socially distance on the beach. Read less

This is a moderate hotel but very clean. Perfect for a weekend getaway. I loved that I could walk out of my room directly onto the beach. The Tiki Bar is good, but not great. The cabana rental was worth every penny, and it wasn’t very expensive to rent $15 with a voucher. It rained in the morning when we were there and the beach flooded a little… Read more

It rained in the morning when we were there and the beach flooded a little when the tide started coming in, I suggest setting your spot up pretty high on the beach. Read less
