“Great location, nice people and good food at a good price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The view from our guest room was outstanding. Great breakfast buffet served in the restaurant starting at 7:00am as well as many menu choices for lunch, dinner and snacks. Tiki bar was fun with frequent musical entertainment. Excellent restaurant right across the street with an amazing salad bar. Was also happy to see guest recycling centers on site.

Room Tip: Oceanfront is the best for a great price.

So enjoyed this visit, even other guests were so very friendly. Super room, very clean and well equipped. The staff were so kind and very welcoming - glad to give you information. We could not have chosen a better weekend as it coincided with the sandcastle sculpting competition. We were so surprised by the extraordinary detail these guys and girls could produce. If visiting the area in November, check with hotel to see when this is on.
We enjoyed a great afternoon on the sundeck and simple food from the cafe as we were all "fed out" it was delicious. Our visit was only for one night but will certainly include it for longer on future trips.

Room Tip: This is very much a 70's style low rise hotel so there really is little to choose between room l...

November is such a fabulous time to visit. We think we 'shine' just a bit brighter with all of the events that are going on as well as the fabulous weather that mother nature provides.

Thank you for noticing our 'kind' staff. We think they are pretty terrific as well!

Hope to see you on the beach again soon.

Looking for a place to get away for a few days, and we made the leap of faith to stay here. It was like hitting the lottery.
The staff are tremendous, they will do whatever they can to accommodate their guests, and always with a kind word and smile.
The hotel itself is super. A bit older than some along the beach, but it is so well maintained that you would never notice it. The lay out is great, with a huge outdoor deck, and a cozy little bar right on the ocean. Patty works the night shift, and is one of the best parts, she is funny and oh so friendly to everyone.
The hotel is right on the beach, so the Gulf is only a short walk, and the hotel keeps their area of it in immaculate condition.
Finally, and not the least bit last, every evening when the sun goes down it is an amazing view, it seems as if it drops right off in front of the hotel. Then, just as it dips over the horizon, a fellow comes out with a conch horn to salute it. Hard to picture, but it does send shivers through you.
All in all, just about the best hotel on the beach.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 4th floor, it directly faces the beach and sunset.

My daughter recently had her destination wedding at the Outrigger and it was FABULOUS. The staff was exceptional in their help as my daughter is a perfectionist and the day turned out to be wonderful and pretty stress free.
The hotel is cosy and the location is excellent. The hotel grounds were always clean and the staff was always there to help in any way they could. The view walking out your door every morning is AMAZING. I would recommend this hotel as a place to stay and as a place for a destination wedding.
I can't wait to go back.

This was our 5th or 6th visit to the outrigger and it just keeps improving each time. They have made many upgrades since our last visit,(mattresses, towels, flat screen tv, etc.). It is still not the Ritz Carlton, but it is clean comfortable, super friendly staff, and has the best beach location in Fort Myers Beach. The amenities are great from the Tiki Bar to the Deckside cafe to the fabulous deck, and Charley's boat house across the street. There is absolutely nothing not to like about the outrigger. Can't wait to return for another vacation.

Excellent location,cosy hotel and super friendly staff.
Stayed in a beach view room.
You can find higher rated, and more expensive, hotels but the location and beachy atmosphere is very hard to top.
I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Beach view is very nice

We love this review! Yes it is because it is a great five star review, but more importantly, it reflects who we really are. A great beach property that has super friendly (our words as well) staff and the perfect beach.

If you want to really be on the beach-sugary white sand, then this is the place in Fort Myers Beach. Good value, clean rooms, nice pool, tiki bar and great place to enjoy the sun. Enjoyed the stay, the view, the chairs on the balcony to enjoy sunrise.

Room Tip: choose the resort view to avoid looking at the parking lot.
