My daughter and I just came back from a girls' week in Ft. Myers. We have only good things to say about the Pink Shell Beach Resort. We've traveled extensively to island locations and think the beach is one of the best. The sand is white and soft, ,and the entire beach area is very wide and long. You can walk for more than a mile. The pool area was also very pretty. Location was great--near downtown. Our room was spacious with a fantastic view of the Gulf. We would definitely stay here again if we're ever in Ft Myers again.

My kids and grandkids stayed at this wonderful hotel. There's much to do especially for kids. Ranger Rob does a great job of educating everyone on Marine life and conservation in SW Florida. I highly recommend the nature walk and the dolphin kayak tour. Well done Ranger Rob!!

I just have to write a review on Dawn from the spa at this hotel. No words can described how amazing she was. Great customer service, had a deep tissue and she really wasn’t afraid to use pressure and made sure I was conformable the whole time. She worked magic on the knots in my back. I feel like a new women. Thanks Dawn! You made my day!

We stayed two nights on this hotel on our roundtrip in Florida. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff was friendly, the room was spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet was good. There were two restaurants, with room for some improvement regarding choices, menus and atmosphere. One simple, but nice, with a small and simple menu, poolside, and another inside with a bit better menu. We tried both but found the atmosphere to be cosier poolside. The beach is nice and the service attentive. We appreciated this hotel very much and would gladly come back. Read less
