Arrived 4-1-11 for a 5 night stay. Big mistake! 6 stories of "party-central" for college age or heavy partiers. The rooms are older & rough & our room was on the 2nd floor, right above the night-club! The music went on until sometime after 3 am, felt like we were right in the bar! You would have to be deaf...

We were traveling to Ft. Myers Beach with about 15 total people and my wife had booked the Lani Kai along with our friends. Because I am in the hotel industry, I always read the reviews and was very nervous about staying here. In fact, I tried to get my wife to change her mind and stay somewhere else but... More

My husband and I decided to get away for our 30th anniversary for a few days and booked a vacation package through Expedia. After looking at the pictures of Lani Kai, we decided that it looked dated, but we had no idea what a dump it was until we arrived an hour before check in and decided to have a... More

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and the view of the Gulf was amazing. There is plenty of entertainment and this hotel is pretty much where everybody goes to because of the entertainment. The outside rooftop restuarant was great and food was excellent. Rooms were clean but very outdated. Hotel appears that its litterly breaking apart in... More

My wife and I (in our 50's) stayed March 22 - 26. We had an efficiency with a king bed and the room was older but clean. The staff at the desk was professional and helpful. The rooms are right on the beach. The location was fantastic. We basically parked the car and walked everywhere. The entire area seems very... More

This establishment should be condemned by the health department. We showered with our shoes on in fear of obtaining a disease from the excessive filth and mold. If you plan on sleeping in the beds, bring your own blankets and don't even touch or sit on the outdated floral print comforters. You could tell they have not been washed in... More

We checked in on Feb 20th. The staff was friendly when we checked in. Then we went to check out our room. The room was clean and we're happy with it. It is the least expensive in Fort Myers Beach and for the price it can't be beat. Housekeeping was so friendly and helpful with daily cleaning of our room... More

We have recently stayed at the Lani Kai and found it to be a great location, right on the beach. We selected this hotel because of pricing. Super beach, but you have to pay extra if you want to use the beach lounge chairs, same thing all along FMB. The food on the top floor restaurants was quite good and... More

We had a fantastic view of the gulf and enjoyed ourselves very much. Close to shopping, beach is very clean, loved the music, (although they could wait until a little later in the day to start the music). Loved the happy hour on the rooftop and reasonable prices. The woman singer was super and she had so much fun with... More

We arrived at the Lani Kai on the evening of Feburary 23, 2011, for a 6 night stay. We were greeted by Suzie at the front desk, she was so very friendly and accomodating. She made certain that we were aware of all of our ammenties, and also recommended a shuttle service to get us around if need be. Our... More
