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!

I booked this hotel for a long MLK weekend. I had to cancel last minute due to a medical issue and the manager, Paula, was a great help. If I go to Fort Myers in the future, I'll book the Outrigger b/c I know that they treat their customers right.

I Called and reserved this room in August for December 17 through the 23rd and asked if there were free chairs at the beach to lay on and she said Yes, we have plenty of chairs to lay on. We come to Fort Myers every year to get away for the snow and cold weather. Most chairs on the beach cost $30 (for 2 chairs). 7 days times $30 is an extra $210… Read more
I Called and reserved this room in August for December 17 through the 23rd and asked if there were free chairs at the beach to lay on and she said Yes, we have plenty of chairs to lay on. We come to Fort Myers every year to get away for the snow and cold weather. Most chairs on the beach cost $30 (for 2 chairs). 7 days times $30 is an extra $210 that I don’t have to spend if there are free chairs. We stayed at this resort b/c of the access on the beach at the free chairs. However, she forgot to mention those free chairs are tied to a tree and can’t be brought to the beach. On top of this, because of COVID they aren’t out tied to the tree at the present time. If you ask someone else who works there, they will tell you yes, we have free chairs to the beach but don’t know where they are located. Stacy said, new employees all the time, the people at the front don’t know what goes on down here at the beach. Stacy is not a customer oriented person and says “free chairs would take away the rental of cabana’s, no we don’t have free chairs. Stacy also says, take the lawn chairs next door “low key” and take those to the beach, no one will know. Great honesty at this place, steal someone else’s stuff. We go out to the beach and sit down (charge our room for chairs) and Stacy comes out and tells the people next to us that we “just want to sit our asses down for free.” My brother goes and ask to talk to a manager decision maker/person in charger someone who can help us out and Sue said she can handle our issue. She later said I will ask Gennie and see what they can do for us and Gennie would call us to discuss the issue. Gennie never called!! About the hotel itself, at check in directions said to leave towels at the front door and will be replaced in the morning. However, because of thefts we aren’t doing that anymore according to one employee. They were replaced when we put them out there. Music played every night which was great. The bar tenders at this area were very nice and talkative.   Rooms nice but thin walls so you can hear a lot when you are trying to sleep. They said it was family owned but I can’t confirm that. Housekeeping supposedly doesn’t come unless you ask for a cleaning however 9 am housekeeping is knocking on the door Pool capacity says 18 but 33 in the pool. I’m sure 18 is up for city inspection but isn’t followed. A nice place over all if you like the uncertainty of rules/regulations/directions etc. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing. A lot of excuses on why things were told but not done.  Stacy thank you for helping with our decision easy if I should come back or not Read less

We’ve been coming here either on family trips or just a couple getaway for a while and it still keeps us coming back. This year the housekeeping was a little off due to covid.

We’ve been coming here either on family trips or just a couple getaway for a while and it still keeps us coming back. This year the housekeeping was a little off due to covid. Their system for replacing towels/toiletries worked better on paper than in practice. So it required some forethought when running low as the exchange/request process didn’t function seamlessly. That being said, the Deckside Cafe, Tiki Bar, live music, and availability of cabanas easily make the housekeeping a minor setback. See you next year! Read less

I had a great trip at the Outrigger a few weeks ago. My room didn't overlook the beach, but it wasn't necessary since the ocean was so close. The water was warm and calm, and on my first day swimming, a group of dolphins came within 15 feet as they followed a school of fish. My room had a fridge and microwave and was very clean.
