my husband and i stayed her as a resting point before leaving from the airport the next day. It was such a slummy place I didn't even feel safe in the elevator. We checked into our room the first day and went down to the beach where the music was playing and many drunk 20 year olds were laying on... More

What a dump. Went for a couple of beers. The place was filthy. Sat right by a floor drain that was filed with smeely junk. Left after one beer. Ian our waiter was excellent.

I am a young school teacher and booked this resort as a weekend get away for Mother's Day. Other than a great location this place is terrible and should be demolished. There were people around who were obviously drunk out of their minds and on drugs. The room I stayed in was full of mold and mildew. There were spots... More

I booked this resort for a business trip I had in Ft Myers Beach, however I was able to have my boyfriend tag along. The entire uniqueness of this property is that you could basically park your car and never leave unless you so chose to do so. The beach is beautiful, it was a bit rough unless you are... More

Didn't stay there, but you couldn't pay me enough to stay there. Walking through the bar is gross enough. Smells like urine and puke. Got sexually assaulted in the bar downstairs. Ate at the restaurant on the rooftop. I waited over a half hour to get my tab after I was done with the food so I went to try... More

I went here with my wife and son on a Senior Week (H.S.) getaway with 15 other families. We had a great time. This is definitely a party place, so avoid if you are looking for quiet. All rooms are gulf view and overlook the beach scene. Even local boat owners drop anchor just off-shore to enjoy the party atmosphere... More

The one pitfall of internet bookings is you dont get the real picture . This hotel is a party hotel and has a nice footprint on the beach but the hotel is very old and it shows the elevators take forever its easier and faster to use the stairs the rooms are pretty abused disgusting and overpriced
