We are still here and have until Saturday but want to be sure to say how much we appreciated and enjoyed our tours with Ranger Rob. We went on the Nature Walk ( free) and then the Sunset /Beach walk ( free ) and this morning one of the kayak tours which has a fee. I highly recommend engaging in as many as you can while staying at the Pink Shell.… Read more

I highly recommend engaging in as many as you can while staying at the Pink Shell. The programs are such an asset . Ranger Rob is extremely knowledgeable and happy to share all that surrounds us. We were fortunate to see so many local species and learn about them too. Thank you Ranger Rob . Read less

We had our wedding at the Pink Shell on January 5, 2020, and I could not have asked for anything more! The resort is amazing. The views are incredible! The wedding was like a fairy tale! What a perfect place to get married!!! The food was great, the beautiful set up of the tables on the patio was great, the service was great, and of course the awesome view and blue sky!! I could not stop smiling! In fact, I smiled all week! The food at Bongo's was great. Our room (5702) was great! My brother's room (5608) was even more spectacular as it was an updated two bedroom. My friends' rooms in the Sanibel Building were also updated and amazing! You cannot go wrong with this resort, and if you want a destination wedding, this is THE place to have it! Shout out to Charlotte, our wedding coordinator who not only made planning the wedding easy, but helped plan the best wedding ever!!! Read less

We've spent a week there two times now and we'll definitely come back when we're in Florida again. We had a one bedroom villa which was huge and clean with a well equipped kitchen. As a European you're not used to having such a nice kitchen or so much space in a hotel so we really appreciated that. Awesome! Our girls love the big pool and looking… Read more
We've spent a week there two times now and we'll definitely come back when we're in Florida again. We had a one bedroom villa which was huge and clean with a well equipped kitchen. As a European you're not used to having such a nice kitchen or so much space in a hotel so we really appreciated that. Awesome! Our girls love the big pool and looking for shells on the beach. In the afternoon there's always a special kind of ice cream and in the morning there are kids or family activities. As our kids don't speak English they didn't participate but it sounds fun. Breakfast is plentiful and excellent, service is fun and fast and we love to sit outside. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. Chairs at the beach and the pool are free, towels are provided. In August Fort Myers wasn't very crowed, it was easy to get a table or a parking spot at all time. Different story during Spring Break, though! Read less

I have been coming here with my friends for several years now in January usually. The staff is always excellent and friendly, with personal shout outs to Rodney, Bruce, Tom, and Bob. CC (hope I’m spelling that right!) helped top off our Sunday with her excellent (and quick!) poolside service. I highly recommend this resort!

Staff were very accommodating and friendly! We got in late and we’re hungry, the security guard opened up the gift shop to get us some snacks, he went over and above. There is a free trolly that runs into town every 1/2 hour also. Will definitely go again, highly recommend. Read less
