Last time we were in Punta Gorda we stayed at Four Points. We liked that hotel, but I visited the rooftop bar at the Wyvern Hotel and vowed that I would stay at the Wyvern if we returned to Punta Gorda. Well, I am glad we did! The hotel is not perfect so let me get the cons out of... More

A recent family reunion allowed me a wonderful 2 night stay at the Wyvern in Punta Gorda. I booked this hotel strictly on the advice of other Trip Advisor reviews and could not have been more satisfied. The lobby, and the greeting that accompanied my arrival, was welcoming and beyond friendly. A gentleman escorted me to my room, all along... More

Recently renovated hotel with rooftop lounge featuring sunset views over the water and pool, good lobby bar & dining room, and large inexpensive rooms. A great weekend getaway! Other local dining options worth a visit include The Perfect Caper & Opus - serving lunch & dinner.

The staff seems friendly, but does not follow through on promises. They make you feel like they care, but not so. The rooftop could be fun with such a great setting, but the place is usually filled with East Coast Attitude and the staff plays into that. Try the Tiki bar across the street for a great view and better... More

How disappointing to come back to your hotel after a long day to find no place to park your car because the parking for 'registered hotel guests only' lot is filled by weekend partiers at the rooftop bar. The front desk staff suggests parking across the street but warns you must move your car by 5 am or it will... More

I stayed at this so called swanky hotel for a high price and could not sleep. The music was pounding in my ears from the bar next door and LuLu's restaurant made me sick!!! I would not recommend this overpriced hotel if you want any sleep this is not for you!!!

Hi folks, I sincerely had an awesome stay at the Wyvern. The decor, location, ambiance, and personnel are above and beyond. My son, my father, and I had a 2 night stay there in early June and really enjoyed our stay. Mike, the bellman & engineer, was very friendly and courteous. The front desk girl Vanessa was sweet and very... More
