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 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

Wonderful service from everyone! Terrific room with a lightening show daily. Great beach! Umbrella/beach chair rental was $30 cash only which you rent at 9:00 a.m. from the gift shop. Rental not affiliated with the hotel due to turtle nesting (they cannot provide at this time). Tiki bar was nice. We ordered our food either from the Tiki or to go… Read more
Wonderful service from everyone! Terrific room with a lightening show daily. Great beach! Umbrella/beach chair rental was $30 cash only which you rent at 9:00 a.m. from the gift shop. Rental not affiliated with the hotel due to turtle nesting (they cannot provide at this time). Tiki bar was nice. We ordered our food either from the Tiki or to go containers inside the Deckside. Was great and easy to do and sitting out in the public deck eating area a bonus! So nice! Trolley service to Times Square was nice took about 30 minutes BUT the return trolley is early so if having dinner you may need to Uber/Taxi back to the hotel. I recommend making arrangements before leaving. Pool was used only once and we had it by ourselves for about an hour. Opens at 9:00 a.m. Wonderful quick stay and terrific service. Looking forward to another visit. Tip - Found some great restaurants down at Times Square that we didn't expect so go explore! Lots of fun! Read less

Below average cleanliness in the room. Close to the water. Fun tiki bar. Pleasant staff. About two miles into town. There were bugs in the room that we had to get rid of each night before bed and we had to clean our own coffee pot each morning before use.

Housekeeping did a phenomenal job, and were very friendly. Front desk was also very polite and helpful, especially Stacy, when we booked. I would absolutely stay here again. My only suggestion would be to have a mirror in the main room and not just the bathroom to help when multiple people are getting ready. Read less

We arrived late and didn't see much until morning. What a pleasant surprise. Right on a huge beach with plenty of shells. Everyone at the resort was friendly as can be and couldn't do enough to make our stay excellent. Very clean room and serviced every morning. Front desk extremely helpful. We'll definitely return.
