“Great Weekend Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Just returned from the Westin Cape Coral and honestly could not think of one thing wrong with this resort. The staff is great and go out of there way to make you feel welcome. The property is wonderful and secluded with a great pool and hot tub overlooking to canal.

In addition this property really feels fresh and new. Although we only had a traditional room it felt spacious and included quality amenities. I must say the private screened in balcony's make the room just that much better!

I travel to Florida frequently to photograph birds. On my most recent trip, I added Cape Coral to my itinerary so that I could photograph the burrowing owls. Not familiar with any of the hotels in that area, I made my decision strictly based on reviews here at TripAdvisor...and I was not disappointed. The room was nicely furnished. The large, screened balcony had a ceiling fan and dimmable lighting. The food at the Nauti Mermaid outdoor bar was excellent. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a most enjoyable stay.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary here during the first week of September. We reserved the Deluxe Mariner Suite and enjoyed the huge suite and fabulous view. Restaurant was great. Customer service outstanding. We already booked a return trip for Christmas!

Room Tip: Highest floor possible!

I had no idea this gem was practically in our back yard. We are here now and have been for 2 evenings because of some remodeling in our Ft. Myers home (also, it is our 32nd anniversary :-) ). Let me tell you, Ritz Carlton and like resorts have nothing on this fabulous place.

The suites are luxurious and huge, the staff is well-trained, friendly, and go out of their way for EVERY single request. The management here has done the most important thing possible in customer service--they've given their staff the training, power and encouragement to say YES.

Westin's signature scent of White Tea, wafting lightly throughout the resort, is so appealing and relaxing, Very smart, Westin! Starbucks coffee is served in the restaurants and you have a coffee pot in the room with Starbucks coffee for you to brew your own. Free newspaper each day. Great happy hour 4-7 with great prices on drinks and flatbread pizza (yum).

Me likee!!

Yes, their is a "resort fee" of $15 daily, but my, it is a deal. Includes internet, a water taxi to Fort Myers Beach (if on your own, would pay that per person minimum), plenty of self parking, etc.

Clearly, the location is somewhat isolated, but to me, that's the beauty. As long as one has a car, it is an easy drive to Ft. Myers, Naples, Estero, Bonita Springs. It would be at most be an hour to Marco Island for a day trip (see about getting a day pass to Marriott's resort on Marco Island if you do that)

Also, I like that they offer you a "green option," of choosing NOT to have housekeeping. If you make this choice you get either 500 Starwood points or $5 each day to use in bar or restaurant. Duh. I prefer the privacy anyway. Be clear though, as the kind front desk employee told me, this does not mean that you have chosen to forgo amenities. All you have to do is ask for additional toiletries, coffee, towels as you need them.

We happen to be here in the off-season (September is very slow in SW Florida), so rates are mind-boggling low, but their prices even during the season are reasonable for this amount of luxury and beauty.

Go to this gorgeous gem as soon as you can, and stay as long as you can. All I ask is that you not take advantage of this goodness. Instead, be kind and grateful and not greedy, so you don't spoil it for those of us who truly appreciate this luxury and beauty.

We stayed for three nights/four days and loved every minute of it. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room had all our needs and extremely spacious. We had a view of the water and their local park, absolutely stunning from the screened in porch. We stayed in a suite on the 9th floor. A little extra money but I promise you its worth every penny. Every piece of furniture, especially the bed, was so soft and comfortable. I would definitely go back in the future.

We took advantage of an $89/night special for a fun weekend trip. We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom unit which was spacious and immaculate and included a full kitchen, large screened patio and a huge bathroom/dressing area. The resort is lovely and has a beautiful pool and landscaping. Our only complaint is that the open air corridor outside our room was messy with trash that appeared to fall out of housekeeping's trash bags (bottle caps, etc ). That area should be swept up daily. I also wondered why there was no soap provided for the sink in the dressing room. Those are minor issues, tho, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We picked the Westin Cape Coral as our Labor Day getaway hotel based on all the great reviews. It is a little over 2 hours from Miami, but well worth the drive. We hadn't spent much time on the west coast of Florida, so we decided to arrive well before the 4p check-in time. Rather than go to the hotel, we looked into paddle boarding on Sanibel Island. We spent an hour working up a sweat in the gulf before finishing off the afternoon with a hard earned cocktail on Captiva.

When we arrived at the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised to see a large parking structure with lots of complimentary parking. I later realized this was part of my daily resort fee charge. (Beats valet prices at a lot of hotels). The lobby was very nice and has a waterfall that many guests take pictures in front of. It was a fairly quick check-in before heading up to our room.

We booked a 1 bedroom suite through Expedia, which means the discounted rate rooms have the worst view in the hotel. The entire hotel sits facing the gulf, but our room was on the 2nd floor facing the bushes. Not a big deal for us, but could be a deal breaker for others. We spend most of our days exploring on vacation, so the view wasn't the end of the world. The room was huge. There was a fully equipped kitchen, a large dining/family area, and a separate master bedroom and bath. It proved to be there slogan, "welcome home."

We went for a late dinner at their restaurant. Late for them is early for us. 9p in Miami and no one has begun to get ready for dinner. I ordered scallops, the waitress described them so well, but was very disappointed with their $32 price tag. The best value for dinner was the flatbread. Next time I'm ordering just the flatbread and a salad. On a good note, my husband ordered bourbon and we were delighted with the reasonable price tag. After dinner, we enjoyed a little R and R in their heavenly bed- they are oh so heavenly- cloud 9.

Based on our pricey experience for dinner, we opted for a nearby brunch place, First Watch. What a great value! $27 for two, we went back the very next day. Sorry Westin, but I did appreciate my morning paper. However, I was disappointed they were only placed out on Sunday of my stay.

They offer a free boat ride to Fort Myers beach, however being Labor Day, the ride was booked before we even checked in, so be prepared to book the trip in advance of your arrival.

Lastly, and very important to us, is a nice gym. The Westin had it available 24 hours a day. We really enjoyed that. Good cardio selection. My husband was happy with the weights and I was very happy with the machines. After the workout, I sat in the shower for 30 minutes, fully utilizing the rain option. I'm looking into purchasing the same shower head option. Amazing!

Overall, our experience to the Westin and the area was very good. We will definitely look to go back. One downside of the area in general, is to be prepared to drive miles between the Westin and wherever you are going. The price of having lots of land is that everything is quite spread out.

Great value for a luxury hotel.
