Hanging Out on the Deck.

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: The fact that everything was right there - beach, pool, food, bar and a bed. Pretty much in that order.
Cons: Maybe the breakfast buffet. However, there were lots of choices and one could order from the regular menu. Hey, it's a buffet.
Location: Close to the south end of the island so the area wasn't touristy or rowdy also close Beach Trolley stop. We just ate, drink and Hung Out on the Deck.
Had a great time that was very relaxing. Great location and being disabled I could walk where we needed go on this too short stay. Well maintained buildings, grounds and beach.

Fun beachside facilities. Beautiful beach and poo

Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: Pool and beach were great
Room on the tight side. Full size beds, not queen. We had three adults and two children so I should have gotten a bigger room. Clean and pleasant though.

Great vacation spot

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Cons: The cabanas on the beach are for rent. you couldn't move the umbrellas to stay out of the sun all day. They were attached to the chairs.
We loved this hotel. Very quiet, the beach was beautiful and so big we never had to sit right next to someone else. The tiki bar was fun but not so loud that you could hear it in the rooms. The staff was extra accommodating. Our flight didn't leave until 5 hours after check out so they provided a room with just a shower so we could stay on the beach after our check out and still have a place to clean up. I'd go to this resort again.

Nice Stay

Posted May 31, 2014
Great vacation spot for an older hotel. Friendly front desk and waitress staff. Great pool and Tiki bar. Daily live Music was a definite plus. The rooms were ok but our floors were definitely not cleaned during our stay. Just wished that the beach was shorter.

comfy & quiet

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: fridge in the room- room for two people--- good housekeeping--
Cons: nice to have two free beers--- though i wouldn't mind more coupons for drinks at the tiki hut
Location: close to hoppng over to sanibel & captiva-- a must! take 41 so to Naples & try Long Horn steakhouse-- also try Doc Fords (restaurant)
this is our 2nd yr staying at outrigger-- our room is just right for the two of us- it is central to everything-- sanibel.... restaurants it is quiet at nite for sleeping- the beach is few steps away from our room- it is a nice hotel-- and free parking - a plus!

Wonderful position

Posted May 3, 2014
Pros: I felt it had a good quality on customer satisfaction. I especially liked that Coffee was included in the breakfast buffet (not additional)
Cons: The extractor fan in the bathrooms are not very good. Getting out of the shower felt like coming out of a sauna!
Location: Lots of things to do. A must is to go on the Manatee, dolphin, shell island boat trip. This was brilliant. Even had dolphins surfing the boats wake.
I really enjoyed Ft Myers beach. I felt it had it everything. Beautiful beach (with shells and wildlife) situated in a quiet position, close to wonderful inland bay and fabulous islands, well tempered entertainment and perfect weather.

Great place on the beach

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Location! Premises very clean and very organized. Rooms have a good size and the balconies are great to hang out with a cool beverage.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: The hotel is not very close to the heart of Ft. Meyers beach so driving is involved when you want to go there. A restaurant and a 711 is close by.
We stayed for 4 nights there with our 2 children (13 years) after a roadtrip through South Florida. It's not the newest facility but really well kept and you can't beat the location. It sits directly on the beautiful and wide beach. The hotel rents out the cabana's for a very reasonable price, which makes for a perfect day on the beach. The beach bar next to the pool is always well attended and the daily live music is fun. Great staff and I have nothing bad to say about this place at all. We would definitely consider to come back

Girls Getaway

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: The spacious room and the family atmosphere
Cons: nothing
Location: within walking distance of eateries
It's a small hotel, fortunately not a highrise which gave it a tranquil appeal and the location in close proximity to the beach, was wonderful.
