we didn't expect a lot from this place, we found a lovely resort, with good big clean rooms, updated new bathrooms, nice people, chocolate in the lobby for everyone, good pool, and a lovely breakfast in the Tiki Bar lounge,

It is nicely located at a quiet area of Cape Coral with good access to the area. The pool is nice and clean, the staff is helpful and nice. They have nice free chocolates and good... More

We needed a hotel room for the 4th of July to be near family. We did not realize that this is the hot spot for everyone in the Cape Coral area for the 4th. It was a great event and they didn't even make the prices outrageous for the room. The Tiki Bar across the pool from the hotel is... More
