I'm a 30 year local so I've not stayed there since the Offshore Powerboat races don't run here anymore but I know a lot has changed for the better. Will try the restaurants soon because they have been upgraded. The rooftop is the best sunset view around and the sliders along the rail make you think you're on a cruise... More

We were spending a week in Cape Coral & decided to spend a couple of nights on the beach. Looked at the reviews & prices & chose the Lani Kai. Our stay was fine, I would not say that the hotel was lovely or really nice, but it was fine. I checked the room over when we checked in &... More

The initial reaction will not be good. We had to park across the street, but didn't move the car for 2 days anyway. The ground floor is designed for high volume, Spring Break business and it's taken a beating over the years. All the open air halls face the street, elevators were slow, but the room makes this place worth... More

The staff were excellent both before and during our stay. We had a newly renovated room which was very nice and tops in cleanliness. The balcony was spacious enough to really sit and enjoy the view and sounds from the bandstand below us and the activity on the beach. The hotel provides ongoing activities that guests can join in or... More

1 Cathie Longworth reviewed Lani Kai Island Resort 20 mins ·  ★☆☆☆☆ Horrible customer service from a 'Manager' just now. Came back to our room after a long day of travel, to find our door WIDE OPEN (with ALL of our belongings inside) and a few Comcast Cable installation crew in our room. Bathroom ceiling ripped apart and nothing but attitude from the... More

We booked here after reading some not so great reviews but decided we wanted the location and the extra amenities. The glider lounge on the roof was great. The food was very reasonable and good. The customer service was great, ask for Nick. He was very knowledge about the area and super friendly. We also ate at the island view... More

Clean spacious rooms with balcony with a great view!! Great bars and best awesome happy hour with amazing specials!! Great service throughout the hotel!! Centrally located. Only thing I didn't like was that we couldn't bring a cooler to the beach but other than that we had a great time and are ready to go back !!

Our first time staying at this hotel, but certainly not our last. Friendly staff, clean room, beautiful beach. Walking distance to pier, shops, restaurants, bars. Not a 5 star luxury hotel, but a million dollar view from your balcony. Can't wait to go back again.

My husband and I stayed at Lani Kai over the weekend for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is dated & the rooms are run down. You will be assessed a $50 credit card fee upon check-in for any room charges you may incur, however, it is refunded within 3 business days. It is in a great location right on the... More
