Oldie but goodie

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Late night music. Most music ended by 8 or 9pm. Till 11p would have been enjoyable.
Location: Great location to the beach, dinning, close to a grocery store, short drive to sanibel and captiva.
If you're looking for luxury, skip this one. If you're looking for a fun, down-to-earth and clean place, this is it! Right on the beach, great service and welcoming tikki hut to grab a drink (or two). Food in the cafe was pleasant. LOTS to walk too from this place.

Perfect accomodations

Posted May 14, 2015
My girlfriend and I travel every year to the Ft Myers area. This year we got an excellent deal at the Outrigger and couldn't have been more pleased with our accomodations. We were comfortable in our room which the efficiency extra was great. It allowed us to get groceries and be able to sleep in and make our own breakfast without the hustle and bustle of running out to grab a bite. The staff were very pleasant. The pool was always clean. The grounds were consistently being worked on. Overall, a wonderful experience.

right on beach

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: Location to beach
Cons: They should have entertainment during all hours the Tiki Hut is open.
Location: Most of the things to do had to be driven to or shuttled.
Tiki bar on deck only had entertainment for a few hours daily and then they didn't put any music on for those relaxing on deck it was total silence. They were very accommodating. Didn't like the standard room because it faced the back lot however they switched us to a pool/deck view for our week there. It was not close enough to the other restaurants and entertainment had to drive or take a shuttle.

Right on the beach!

Posted May 2, 2015
It was nice being right on the beach and the pool/bar area was always full of people which made it fun. The room last could be updated structurally. The door had cracks around it and there is a little vent under the window that smoke would come through if our neighbor was outside smoking. The beds are a little on the hard side but overall the room was clean. Oh- as of April the wifi situation was pretty much non-existent.

Decent hotel right on the beach

Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: Great location
Cons: Bartenders are not friendly. Food is terrible. Rooms are a little shabby.
We have stayed there several years in a row - it has everything you need for a relatively quiet stay on the beach. However, I find the staff to be less-than-professional and I think it is overpriced for the quality of the hotel. We will look elsewhere next year.

Great Beach, Tiki Bar and Beautiful Beach

Posted Apr 18, 2015
Pros: Beach, Gulf, Tiki Bar, Landscaping, Deckside cafe and the awesome friendly staff were all good points.
Cons: Newer larger rooms.
Location: Location is on South Beach area which is quieter & away from the main bar area which is a drive. If you like it a bit quieter then this is the place.
We chose this hotel for the property layout and landscaping. There are lots of palm trees and an awesome Tiki bar. The beach is wide and the water perfect. The on-site Deckside Cafe has very friendly staff and good food. We saved some money by getting the standard room which was way too small and the bathroom was even smaller. The decor was dated. In hind sight I would pay the extra money and get a better room. Overall the staff and ground were great and our standard room was just okay.
