My husband and I were stranded in Fort Myers Beach because of a snowstorm back home, and we looked for the least expensive hotel on the beach that could accommodate us. Lani Kai was that hotel. The staff was incredibly helpful, both on the phone when booking the hotel and throughout our stay. We can't speak highly enough of them.... More

Like the title says. They have the best burgers on the beach. Go here, their burgers are second to none! Staff is friendly and owner is living/making the American Dream come true. Very casual and laid back, you won't regret it.

We had a nice evening at Lani Kai, visiting with friends and enjoying a nice dinner. The menu had a nice variety of options, with a wide range of seafood offerings. The outside tables are porch swings, which are fun to sit at for something different. The meals were a little expensive for what you got, but not terribly expensive... More

Awesome hotel! We had a two room suite, everything was newly remodel. Bathroom was a dream. Hotel service and staff was extremely helpful and friendly at all hours. The only downside was no internet access in the room. Had to go to the lobby to connect.

Nice place to visit for sun and sunsets. Definitely a place for college kids. Not a family place at all. Very crowded. But overall not bad. I will probably return because I have friends here. But if I didn't know anyone I would not return.

We selected Lani Kai for beach location and live music. We had warning that it was old but clean. This was very true. All rooms are facing the beach which was nice. Beach is nicely maintained and chairs and umbrellas are available for rent. Good price if you stay. Music was very good during the day. They also face the... More

We arrived about 6pm and checking in was easy. Went to our room, the view was wonderful. The beds were old and I could feel the springs in my back. The party down stairs started at 9:39 pm, we were 4floors up and had to endure the music until 1:45am. Afterwards there was two fights outside my door and later... More
