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!

Me and my husband stayed for three nights to celebrate my birthday. At check in the girl was super nice and very informative about the area since this was are first time. She asked if we were celebrating anything and we casually mentioned it was a birthday trip. The next day when we came in from the beach there was a bottle of champagne and two glasses left in our room. That was super nice and we were very surprised. Also our room was very clean. I am super picky and checked it out and seen nothing. We felt very comfortable there. We enjoyed the tiki bar and ate at the restaurant twice. The food is decent and we had good service. No complaints at all. When we return to the area we will stay here. Read less

We really enjoyed our stay here. Be warned that there isn't much around to do but it's not a long drive to get to places. The room was very clean and the beach was nice. Lots of cool shells! Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. We would definitely return!

We stayed 4 nights on the Oceanview side on the 3rd floor which would be great for sunsets but it rained almost every evening we were here Our room had its own full kitchen with utensils pot pans and plates. Our room was very clean and cozy, I felt very comfortable. We did not visit the tiki bar, but it was always busy. We also did not visit the pool but it looked nice. We were able to collect many seashells from the beach. This hotel is further down the road so make sure you have transportation. It was definetly quiet and room service came every day. No issues here. Would definetly visit again. Read less

Stayed here after a friend did some research and was told that everything was in walking distance so we didn’t rent a car. 5+ miles was not an ideal walking distance for me in 100 deg weather. Besides that, the staff was wonderful. It wasn’t bad for the price. The rooms are clean and average. The pool is nice and so is the little tiki bar by… Read more
Stayed here after a friend did some research and was told that everything was in walking distance so we didn’t rent a car. 5+ miles was not an ideal walking distance for me in 100 deg weather. Besides that, the staff was wonderful. It wasn’t bad for the price. The rooms are clean and average. The pool is nice and so is the little tiki bar by the pool. However, I didn’t like the fact that if you wanted to grab one of their chairs/umbrellas that they have lined up on the beach, you are charged $30/day! So in addition to paying for a week stay, if you want to be protected from the scorching sun in 100 deg you’ll need an additional $200+! And they have no ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs to put on the door. Some people don’t need their rooms cleaned every day so you have to tell the front desk if don’t need that daily service. The beach was nice but there was a lot of seaweed along the beach resort that should have been cleaned up but wasn’t. No trash cans on the beach doesn’t make sense to me but maybe that’s the norm in that area. The Tiki bar is very small and the little restaurant that serves food around the resort is nice and has decent food but the service is not very good. After 2 times ordering food, the next time we walked down the beach a little ways to Pinchers that had much better food and much faster service. They also have a much bigger Tiki bar! Overall, a decent place to stay. But my next visit, we’ll be staying around the Times Square/pier area which is 5 + miles down the road where dozens of bars/restaurant /shops are walkable. Just don’t reply on the trolly system in the area. They come by when they feel like it. Read less

We had 3 rooms. The rooms were clean and met all our needs. It was the first time here for part of the family. They enjoyed the atmosphere and liked that we didn’t have to leave the resort unless we wanted to. Of course some us took the trolley to Times Square. The cafe service was on par.

I believe was Kristen that waited on 8 of us.She was wonderful! Laughed and joked with us all. We try and at least come visit at least once a year sometimes we make it twice. Thank you for a great family vacation. Read less
