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 didn't expect to stay in a 5-star hotel, but this one had everything we wanted. The room was clean, the food and bar were fabulous, and the location? Unbelievable, just steps away from the Gulf! We wished we spent one more night during our visit, so I guess we'll have to return soon.

The only disappointment was the restaurant and bar closed a little earlier than we expected. But...we simply adjusted : ) Read less

We stayed one night at The Outrigger and had a really great stay. Our room was ready very early and we were able to get on the beach and start relaxing right away. I also asked for a late checkout and for a small fee, we were able to stay till 6 pm! I’ve never had a hotel offer me that. It was great. Kaylee (I’m spelling it wrong sry) and Ronnie were fabulous! We were there celebrating our 10 yr wedding anniversary and they surprised us with a bottle of champagne. Although our room didn’t have a view, it was very nice and very clean. I noticed someone always cleaning and sweeping throughout our stay. They gave us coupons to use at the hotel and on the island. Their time bar is great with specials daily. They also have a restaurant there that’s open all day. They had great recommendations for restaurants and really want to make sure your stay is great. Thank goodness we brought beach chairs, I didn’t realize they didn’t supply them. They have rentals but they are far away from the water right now because of the season they are in. They did not offer umbrella rentals which would have been nice. We didn’t bring ours and would have had to buy a new one if we stayed longer than a day. We really had a great experience here and I highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back again. Read less

I was pleasantly suprised when I walked into my room at the resort to find beach themed decor and bedding! This hotel was perfect for the type of getaway we were wanting to experience. The location was perfect because we wanted to go shelling every day and we could walk RIGHT off the resort onto the beach and into the golf. It was truly perfect!… Read more

My husband and I stayed here for 1 week in an oceanfront room. We originally had a standard room but paid to upgrade to an oceanfront efficiency once we arrived. We had great service from everyone we came into contact with and would recommend this resort.

We researched or called probably 40 places looking for a great experience & a lower cost in the Ft Myers Beach area. We landed here. Great, welcoming staff! Roomy, islandy look & great atmosphere. Room decor & total makeover is awesome! Pool superb. Restaurant tasty. April, our waitress, represented the hotel well! Best place on the island we feel. Beach water was brownish & not sure if this is normal. All I can say is, look no further. Read less
