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!

We had a room overlooking the tiki bar and we could see the pool also. Next to tiki bar there were a lot of lounge chairs and also table and chairs with tiki hut roofs and live music .The room was fairly large with a microwave and small refrigerator. Step in shower which is great for me. The building had an elevator which was great since we were on the 3rd floor. Tiki bar was great and so was the pool. water temp was not too cold and not too warm. There was a cafe right in our building on the ground floor. We ate dinner one night and two breakfasts which were all great. Some areas have covered parking. Although I do not smoke there were 3 designated smoking areas and one was not at the tiki bar.

If you’re looking for a Beautiful tropical getaway in the Lower 48, look no further! The Outrigger has it ALL! We stayed here in April 2019 for our first time and LOVED it so much we just went back in August 2019!! Just 2 of us in the Garden Efficiency room. These rooms are clean and fabulous. They have up close parking, a quiet secluded patio great for breakfast, and a fully equipped mini-kitchen! The resort has an awesome pool area with a pool that stays 84° and is completely refreshing in the hot Florida sun! Just a couple steps away you can visit the Tiki Bar and get all your tropical drinks from Mark and Jeff! The Deckside Grill has a variety of delicious foods and you can sit in your swim suit on the Huge sundeck while waiting for it. Two steps outside the Tiki Bar and you’re in the soft white sand and a couple more steps, your on the warm waters edge of the Gulf! They rent cute little cabanas for the day for $15! The entire resort is constantly being cleaned up - they take such good care of it! ALSO!!! If you have a late flight and worry about what you’re going to do from checkout (noon) til the flight?.....they have the Sand Trap which is a FREE amenity where you can stay at the pool/beach/bar and reserve a whole hour in the Sand Trap which is a clean room with a shower, toilet, two sinks, and stocked with towels and toiletries for you go freshen up before your flight. (pics attached) Seriously, just stop looking and book it already!!! :) Read less

I always hold my breath when booking online hoping the pictures are true to form. In this case the pictures didn't do justice to the hotel and grounds. Brittany at the front desk set the tone for our Staycation with her bubbly personality and eagerness to make our stay perfect - we were given a very reasonable upgrade to a gulf front room complete with balcony, couch, full kitchen & dining area. The pool, Tiki Bar, and sunning/eating deck is spacious and clean - it was great to listen to the daily entertainment or background music without it being too intrusive. Staff worked diligently to clean and service all areas. The BBQ area is a nice touch. Lounge chairs, corn hole, volleyball, etc to keep you entertained. Gift shop/ watersport rental & charter boats is steps from the pool. I have to say that while I came to shell on Sanibel, the shelling was better right in front of the resort. Nice mix of families and adults. This is a pet free resort. Read less

Looking just like the surfers hotels in movies! The Beach is amazing, the water is brilliant and to see the dolphins jump in the sea! That just makes it for us❤️ The carpet in the room is not the best in a Beach resort! If you are in fort mayers area! Gogog
