I only visited the beachfront bar; I (wisely as it turns out) stayed further up the beach. Six of us came down later in the evening and were gathered around one of the several bars inside. We asked the bartender to take our picture, then I put my camera back in its case and put it on the bar. So... More

I believe this is the worst place I have ever stayed. The first thing that happened when we arrived was no parking at 7pm. Then they staff gave us the wrong key. The first morning at 8am maintence came in the room without knocking and noticed us in bed! No apologies but we could hear them outside, "who is that,... More

Overall... More

My room was awful. Bathtub finish was peeling off. I had to place a towle in the bottom of the tub to protect my feet. Live Band played all evening until 2:00 am. Toliet ran all night. Pillows need to be replaced; very clumpy and smelled. Bed linens were scratchy. Towels were very thin and barely absorbant. Kitchen closed an... More

We loved the Lanai Kai.Our room was on a lower level so our balcony view made us feel as though we were sitting right on the beach.After our day in the sun we sat ,and took in the days events with cold beer in hand and everything was right there:The gulf,the palms,the people, the music ..the dolphins,the sunset,the balmy breeze,the...

This review is for the Lani Kai in Fort Meyers Beach, Florida now apparently owned by Quality Inns. This is a classic case of booking a hotel without first getting some opinions about the place. I wanted to book my family (including an 8-year-old girl and newborn boy) for a warm getaway in Florida to break up the doldrums of... More

Yeah, the place and service are really crappy. But you do have to keep in mind you're in Florida and on vacation, so enjoy it. DO NOT give a deposit at the front desk for an extra key. They made us do that and then denied that we gave them any money, so our group lost $20 due to their... More

Although we did not stay in the Lani Kai, we visited the Rooftop Bar/Restaurant at night during our stay in Ft. Myers Beach. The swings that they have in leiu of booths are fun, and the view over the top is great - you can hear and smell the ocean, which is really nice on a clear night. NOT a... More
