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 double room with small frig and microwave and very nice bathroom. It has a cozy TIKI bar with live music and small restaurant that serves great food. Right across the street is a very nice restaurant and a small convenient store is just a block away. There is a lot of street work going on in Ft. Myers Beach but this is at the southern end of the beach area and less crowded. Read less

We stayed during the ramp up of the Covid-19 virus. Staff were very accomodating to cancelling the remaining days on our reservavtion as we decided to return home. We were in room 328 which had a great view of the beach and we sat on our balcony to listen to the music in the restaurant below. The music stops by 9 which was perfect for us. The beachfront is beautiful and so calm and quiet we were surprised to discover a very different atmosphere just a little north of the location. Our room was recently renovated and very nice. The resort is not fancy but is affordable, very clean with friendly staff. I would highly recommend it for famiies and others looking for a quieter stay. Read less

My visit to Ft Myers Beach couldnt have been better. I'm so happy my favorite bartender of all time Jimmy was back. What a fantastic surprise that was. The Outrigger did themselves proud bringing him back.

We stayed at the Outrigger March 4-8. Perhaps our expectations were set a bit too high because we had previously stayed 6 nights at a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo resort a few blocks away with another couple. We moved because of the affordability of the Outrigger after our friends returned home. We were in a double queen with a pull out sofa room and… Read more
We stayed at the Outrigger March 4-8. Perhaps our expectations were set a bit too high because we had previously stayed 6 nights at a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo resort a few blocks away with another couple. We moved because of the affordability of the Outrigger after our friends returned home. We were in a double queen with a pull out sofa room and we felt the room was quite small. Our refrigerator froze everything that we placed in it and we tried to adjust the settings several times! Our air conditioner leaked and had two plastic tubs underneath it the entire time we were there. The water from the tubs was emptied, so it must have been known that it was leaking. We also weren't expecting the noise level from the street and from the people staying above us!!! On a positive note, the room was exceptionally clean and all staff that we encountered were pleasant. We did enjoy the Deckside Café and the proximity to the beach from our room. We walked the beach daily and did not use the pool area at all. The sunsets are gorgeous! Read less

Stayed here for one night and wished we stayed longer. Amazing gulf views, great beach, great tiki bar and super clean rooms. Staff was so friendly and the checkin process was quick and easy. Definitely will stay here again.
