Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina

Fort Myers, Gulf Coast Beaches

The hotel

This resort nestles along a ¼-mile stretch of sugar white sand at the tip of Estero Island on Florida’s popular Gulf Coast. The resort is spread out over a generous 12 acres on which you’ll find the fun-filled Octopool freeform pool featuring waterfall, giant shells, sponges and more. Relax and unwind in the Aquagëne Spa, or around one of the three swimming pools or for the more energetic, enjoy a sailing lesson at the resort’s exclusive offshore sailing school.

We had an awesome spring break at the Pink Shell! We loved our room, the pool, the beach, the food & the staff made our stay exceptional! An unexpected highlight of our trip was Ranger Rob! He has a great rapport with adults and instantly connects with children in the most fun, creative and educational ways. Once our girls (7 & 11) met him,… Read more

He has a great rapport with adults and instantly connects with children in the most fun, creative and educational ways. Once our girls (7 & 11) met him, all they wanted to know each day was what activity they could do with Ranger Rob?! He is an asset to the Pink Shell and the impact that he is having on our world is beyond measure! Read less

As a member of the Pink Shell resort, I visit often. I have splurged on spa treatments a few times but wish I had met Tamera sooner. She did an extraordinary deep tissue massage. I have back problems and knee issues and she listened to my concerns and targeted areas I asked for. She got to muscles I didn’t even realize were tight. I made a return… Read more

My daughter and I had a wonderful, relaxing time. We loved the many options of things to do and we especially enjoyed meeting Ranger Rob and watching him rescue the baby birds! Our server, Dawn, was very nice and attentive. She really took care of us.

We stayed in the main building - White Sand Villas - 2 bedroom, 2 bath room 5610. It was fantastic. Pros: Amazing view of the whole beach and pool. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel staff was great. Particularly the bell station and pool service. Breakfast was very good and hot. Walkable to everything and there's a tram if you prefer to not walk. The paddle boards were almost always available for use. Cons: We were not warned it was cashless prior to our arrival. They only take credit cards or charge to a room which can quickly get out of hand. The pull out couch was not even a little comfortable, I do not recommend that for adults. Breakfast lines were very long. The service at Bongo's during lunch was very very slow but the food was good and hot. We would definitely go back. Read less

My wife and I stayed for the month of April on our boat at the marina at Pinkshell Beach Resort and Marina. We had excellent help from the dock hands, Dave and Craig. As marina guests, we had access to most of the amenities of hotel guests. These included, access to three pools, towels, the spa, three restaurants, beach chairs and umbrellas for no extra charge! That’s a great deal. We rented a car several times during the month and the valet service was excellent. Never had to wait more than a minute to drop off or retrieve our car! Finally, the staff always seemed to want to please the guest which is a tough thing to find on a consistent basis in the resort industry. We’ll be back! Read less
