We decided on this beach to take our honeymoon on, looking for something cheaper we found the Lani Kai. Fairly quick check in, staff wasn't too friendly but not completely terrible. The room was nothing fancy but it was ok. Driving all the way down there we were pretty tired from the trip, downstairs can be pretty loud at night... More

As we knew what we were getting into before we booked we were happy with what we got. The hotel is under remodel and we like the newly remodeled room we had it was done very nicely. I agree it still needs more work but, it is under construction. Found most of the staff to be friendly but, the downstairs... More

It is on the beach. Every room has seaview. The restaurant and bar on the roof are great. The wifi unfortunately doesn't work well. Free parking is nice and there are many stores next door. A bit old but clean. Use a Florida coupon to get the room for $79.

The Lani Kai was a great place to go and just unwind. I have 2 small children, and I loved that behind this hotel there was a little kids area right next to a food stand. We ate dinner at the Island View up top, and the view was amazing. The staff was helpful, and polite. I thought the room... More

Crazy fun place for all age adults. The rooftop restaurant was great at sunset margaritas on the beach were fantastic. It may be a little loud music but we were on vacation from the chilly north in the state of Connecticut.

This hotel is older but was very clean & they are renovating rooms. Everyone there was very nice and the restaurants were good too! With all rooms beach front with a balcony you can't beat the view! Also, within walking distance of tons of shopping and restaurants.

Don't believe all the complainers. Those types will always find something wrong anywhere. My wife and I stayed here for four nights and we thought this was one of the best resorts on the beach. All rooms face the Gulf! We've stayed at a different resort on Ft. Myers Beach and for double what we spent here all we got... More
