We stayed one night at the Lani Kai on our first trip to Fort Myers Beach. We only stayed one night because we had rented a car to drive to the Keys for the remainder if our vacation. The ocean view room was nicely decorated and the view was excellent. We had a nice balcony with table & chairs to... More

We once again enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We stay here every time. If you stay here now, you will see that the rooms have been remodeled nicely with new paint fixtures and furnishings. The elevators are upgraded too. Nicely done! This is a beach front hotel with lots of groomed sand. Excellent location. The new Island view restaurant... More

I have stayed at the Lani Kai several times, and have had the best memories there. It is wonderful for watching the 4th of July fireworks...were able to see the Fort myers beach fireworks display with ease, and in the background the Sanibel/Captiva fireworks were going off. The hotel room itself is not premium, but it was clean and the... More

This was our first time to Fort Myers Beach and the Lani Kai. The newly renovated rooms were great! Ours was very "beachy". Colors were aqua and white. Excellent view of the beach and water from our balcony. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was great to walk on. They also had beach bar service, which... More

Wife booked this on line as we have stayed at a couple places north of the pier within the last few years and this is our third trip to FMB over the last 10 years. All the rooms have a wonderful view facing the gulf and there's no need to leave the island once you are here. It's got a... More

I read many very bad reviews and spoke with the front desk manager of this resort about them. She assured me that the entire hotel was in the advanced stage of renovation and that my concerns were unnecessary. Neida said that some of these concerns were valid a year ago but assured me that My wife and I would enjoy... More

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon at check in and all lots were full. Loud , loud music and mostly young people in scantily clad outfits that had drinking. Room was clean but lacked sound proof walls and door with seal on it. Motorcycles, loud screaming and talking were the norm into the night. We had booked the room for the... More

Wanted cheap and close to the beach in a great location. That is what we got. That is all we got. Rooms looked like they were from the 80s, the bathroom was dirty and small, and good luck with the office people. We came for spring break expecting to party a bit and expected the typical crowd, but when there... More

Our second stay at Lani Kai as we visited last year- we were not disapointed! Had a room with a king size bed and kitchenette that actually came with paper towels, plates, silverware, etc. Live music was great to listen to during the day and it was still quiet enough at night for our toddlers (1 and almost 3) to...
