I was a little hesitant looking at other reviews BUT this place was great the staff was friendly and helpful when we first got there we were exhausted the music was loud and young adults everywhere. We ran back out and met with friends who said this was party central and good luck sleeping. Well part central was right but... More

Rooms.. They're better then the were. Not perfect but that's not expected here. We've always liked the water front rooms and their balcony's. We also had two visits to the Island view and were not disappointed. The Sunday brunch was offered at a discount when booking so we took them up on that and enjoyed it.

I have not stayed at this resort but was in Ft. myers on business and remembered the rooftop bar from ten years ago. They have unique benches and tables on "sliders" that rock you back and forth. Our server was excellent with great menu recommendations. I highly recommend the grouper Reuben. There was a and down in the beach and... More

The Lani Kai is located in the heart of FMB. It is a quick walk to Time Square and all of the restaurants and shops. You can't beat the location. The hotel is currently under a major renovation. They just put two new elevators in (MUCH needed) and they are gutting all of the rooms. I love Suite 501. It... More

Nice hotel for a party. On the beach they have live entertainment until 2am. That is great unless you want to sleep. Was only there for the weekend. I have been there during spring break and the place is party central. They have been remodeling the rooms, the decor was simple and durable. I would stay there again when planning... More

This was a excellent resort, Rooms clean , size was nice and the balcony opened up to the beach. This hotel was better than we expected. The hotel also had souvenir shops, snack shops , tiki bar and a rooftop restaurant and a pool. Great staff also, you won't be disappointed.

I own a timeshare on Ft. Myers Beach and wanted to extend our stay 1 more night. I know this place is a Spring Break destination, but was very impressed with the happy hour prices and quantity of food at the resturant! My family of 10 enjoyed our quick stay and would have no issues visiting again :)

A great, fun beachfront resort with several restaurants and more bars, where they still have an afternoon limbo contest. Right on the beach and short walk on beach to cute little downtown with more bars and restaurants. Old but clean and friendly.

Please don’t let the negative reviews put you off this place – it’s location and rooftop bar should make it your number 1 choice for Fort Myers beach. We stayed for 2 nights during a road trip around Florida and absolutely loved it. Walking into our 5th floor room and opening the patio doors/balcony out to the most incredible ocean... More
