The main attraction to the Outrigger Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach is indeed the expansive white-sand beach. If we’re talking “location, location, location,” this place has got it. Located away from the busier section of Estero Island, Lovers Key State Park is easily accessible, and Sanibel and Captiva Islands are not too far away either.
I got a room on a weekday in August for a reasonable rate as a walk-in. In fact, I arrived well ahead of their published check-in time (4 p.m.) and got in right away. The guest rooms are basic, and I’d say the bathrooms are a bit tight. I noticed a few very small ants in the bathroom, which according to the front desk are more prevalent during the rainy times. Really, the ants were so few and so small, who cares?
As for amenities, there is an outdoor freshwater pool surrounded by a large deck and nearby tiki bar. The Deckside Café is only steps away where you can get breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The staff is friendly and helpful from the front desk to the restaurant to housekeeping. Overall, a good value, I think. And apparently if you live in state, you can get an even better “local” rate.
