Extreme drop in service and experience from many years of visiting. Parking - told no parking in lot unless handicap or hotel resident and referred across the street. Across the street was full. When I told the parking attendant he said he didn't know and just walked away from me. A main attraction to eating at Lani Kai is the... More

Although staff was friendly and location was great the hotel is extremely run down. In desperate need for remodeling. A/c broken, fridge broken, blinds in room broken, curtains torn, table broken, chair in balcony missing a section/broken. Outlets didn't work, alternate room had strong sewage smell.

If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place to stay...Lani Kai is NOT the place. We didnt get to sleep until about 2:30 am thanks to the club and the loud music directly under our bed...which vibrated the bed and the whole room. This went on until 2am. Had I known this fact, I never would have agreed to... More

Even after reading all the bad reviews we decided to stay at the resort, and we had a great time. The view was amazing from our room. The beach was so much fun, kept nice and clean and there was a band playing all day which made the beach so much fun. The hotel had an older charm to it,... More

We stay here every time we go to Fort Myers Beach. It's the "place to be" on Fort Myers Beach (as is attested to by the many many boats that park on the sandbar here daily). The beach is a great beach-front hotel, every room faces the gulf, the staff is wonderful, and the party never ends here. The beach... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay this past weekend! There was only one negative about our trip...We arrived on the 4th of July, and they were selling parking places to beach goers and didn't have parking available for actual hotel guests. That doesn't seem like the right thing to do! On the flipside, the activities going on for the 4th of... More

Once again, the Lani Kai has proven it is the anti- Naples-esque scene for southwest Florida. Yes, people party here. Yes, the music is loud, the beer is cold, and the view a great. But thing thing that people in other reviews on here miss is that if you don't want that atmosphere, you don't have to do everything through... More

This is the worst place we have ever stayed! We wanted a nice restful beach vacation and found ourselves on the Florida version of Jersey Shore. There is a live band every night until 2am at the outside bar accompanied by yelling screaming party goers. We couldn't sleep it was so loud!! The bed was horrible and the room was... More

If you party to the point of puking, you will want to stay here. It has vomit-proof vinyl furniture which I have NEVER seen in any hotel, motel or party dive I have ever stayed in. I was already disturbed by the "entryway" into our hotel room which was a plywood cubbyhole that was dimly lighted. It looked like an... More
