This a great place to stay for a family or a couple. Very clean units and staff was great.
On the N side of Ft. Myers Beach and the pier. You do not see the dolphins here as they seem to like the southern part of the beach area. That was disappointing but it is what it is.
We stayed here 6/7 to 6/15 2013 in room 302 which was a great oceanfront room. The only thing that we didn't like is that the bedroom was in the back of the unit and you could not see or hear the ocean/gulf. There was a nice pull-out bed in the living room.
-Pool was maintained every morning and they did a great job. It's heated but obviously doesn't need it at this time of year.
-Hot tub is awesome. About 102 degrees and really pleasant, especially at night.
-Pool and HT are only supposed to be open till dusk, but that goes by the wayside every night and nobody really seems to care. I think this is great that nobody complained and the kids had a great time after hours.
-Parking is tough under the tennis courts. Either the driver or passenger door will be hard to get in and out of.
-Great beach in low or high tide. A few fishing guys out there in the am. Lots of opportunity for gathering shells, if you like that.
-Small kitchen in our unit, but it was fully equipped. Real oven, microwave, fridge, and utensils.
-Publix is WAY overpriced on Estero Blvd. Walmart is about 15 minutes away by car. Worth the ride.
-Laundry machines are free, but you have to have the detergent. They have machines for that and cost 0.50/deal.
-Chairs for the beach are free but you must haul them yourselves. And, take them back when you are done. Not a problem. Umbrellas are optional at a cost.
-You can smoke at the North end of the pool or in other designated areas. It is all outlined in the pamphlet/summary sheet they give you when you check in.
-You can use the bikes for free at the resort. Just check them out and return them. It's about a mile to the pier.
-Towel exchange is on Tuesday.
We really thought we would be the youngest people here (Look at their website weekly pics), but it turned out there were a lot of couples and families which was cool. We had a great time and met some great people.
