I just checked out after a 4-night stay at the resort. I have three kids (boy-14, boy-11, girl-9) and we had a great time. There is almost nothing that you need that the resort hasn't thought of or can't provide. We stayed in the Sanibel View Villas on the first floor for the first 3 nights and then we were... More

Spent two nights recently with just the wife and kids on a mid week stay, couldn't have been more relaxed and at ease. The kids played in the "octopool" for hours and then went to the kids pool area to play in the fountains. Delicious food and drinks and reasonably priced for a resort. Would recommend to any and all... More

Well, we checked in today and what more can I say than we can't wait to leave. This place is billed as the best on Ft. Meyers Beach, and that may be true, but know that, unfortunately, doesn't equal even remotely decent. One restaurant; cold food and be ready to wait. Kids everywhere. Accommodations are cabin-like and unimpressive. I'm shocked... More

The Pink Shell is just a wonderful property for a relaxing family vacation. The miles of CLEAN white sand beach on which the resort is situated are absolutely fabulous. The pool area was very nice also. One thing I especially liked was that one didn't have to go rushing out at the break of dawn to 'stake a claim' to... More

My son and I traveled to the Pink Shell during our spring break the first week in April. The Pink Shell was located far down the "strip" of Fort Myers beach. Past the buildings crowded together. We were suprised and delighted to have a room in the building next to the main hotel. The room had 2 balconies, one with... More

We thank you for visiting us during Spring Break. Our location is just as you described, away from the crowds for a relaxing day on the beach, but close enough to Times Square to take a walk and enjoy the Fort Myers Beach pier. I am delighted to hear that your accommodation in the Captiva Deluxe Villa exceeded your expectations.... More

The hotel is right on the beach. The rooms are very comfortable. The only problem we had was with the elevator. It got stuck for awhile and I was nervous to use it again. The pool area is very nice and good for kids and families. The restaurant by the pool is very accomodating. We have had several nice lunches... More

Thank you for your review of the Pink Shell. I am glad that you found our resort to be comfortable and our restaurant and marina to be very accommodating. I’m sorry that you experienced an inconvenience with our elevators. We understand how much of a necessity a working elevator is, and so we worked diligently to get them running again.... More

Our stay began with issues in our Sanibel room, we quickly contacted the front desk. We received a call back from Mark, one of the managers. He was very apologetic and worked quickly to place us in another room in the White Sands building. What started out as disappointing, turned out to be a wonderful 35th anniversary trip for us....

Our trip was March 2014 and couldn't have been better! It was 3 women and my daughter. We loved the location as it was not in the main traffic. The beach was beautiful and they combed it every day. Chairs were free. Umbrellas for rent. We did parasailing and a dolphin tour from the hotel - both reasonably priced and... More

Upon arrival, it was a Saturday, the noise and activity was overwhelming in the main building. The band by Bongos was loud and you are near the main family pool. I wouldn't stay in this building. I had booked in the Sanibel efficiencies which were lovely. All have views of the gulf, lanais, and a quiet pool, although pool service... More

One of the great benefits of our resort is the space within our property. With the White Sand Villas, Captiva Villas, and Sanibel View Studios, each with their own pool, you can choose to be near the action or lounge in a quiet, secluded area under a palm tree. We’re glad you found a spot that was just right for... More
