“Great first stay at Gull Wing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

First time we stayed at Gull Wing but will certainly not be the last. Stayed in a 2 bedroom island view suite. Excellent accommodations and had everything we wanted. Looking forward to our next stay later this year.

Amazing location right on Beach front in Ft Myers Beach, in the quiet area.. You wont have to share the beach with the crowds at this resort. Kyle at the front desk was welcoming and friendly. We had a 2 bedroom beachfront unit located on the 5th floor. It was quiet, huge and beautiful!
The back guest bedroom featured a queen bed and an adjacent bathroom with a large linen closet in the hall. As you went further down the hall, you come to the large well equipped kitchen, complete with dining table and a long counter with 6 stools. The kitchen looks over the living room and beyond to the sliding glass doors which face the ocean.. Gorgeous views!.. The living room has a huge sleeper sofa and big screened TV and another area with a bar and counter seating for 4.
The screened in balcony has a nice large glass table and chairs for dinging and just looking at the beautiful views.
The master bedroom also had a beachfront view and access to the balcony as well as a walk in closet and gigantic bathroom.
All rooms had ceiling fans and of course A/C.
The beach here has lovely white sand and is very WIDE!
The resort has a nicely heated saltwater pool and a large rectangle hot tub area!
You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas at the beach from friendly beachfront kiosks.
There is a nice CVS about 2 blocks walking distance and an area with restaurants and bars about another block. We loved not having to use our car to go out to eat.
We highly recommend the South Beach Grille,.. we liked it so much we ate there twice. Located in the area 1 block past CVS. Just exit resort to the right and walk 3 blocks.. there is also a wonderful ice cream parlor located in the same area
We loved this resort for its cleanliness, quiet location, wonderful staff , outstanding ocean front views and huge beautifully decorated units.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra bit of money for ocean front..

We booked a 1 bedroom condo with an Island view since we were on a tight budget. When we arrived we were happy to find out that we'd been upgraded to a Bayview room. We opened the door to our suite and we were blown away! We had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom condo!! We ran around the suite like giddy children. The master suite was beautiful with a really nice en suite bathroom. The other 2 rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable.

Gullwing backs onto a huge expanse of beach - I think it's the nicest part of the whole beach. It was relatively quiet and not at all crowded. The pool and hot tub were lovely as well, although the hot tub did have an awful lot of chlorine.

We had everything we needed in the condo, plus laundry facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful when it came to making sure my lost luggage finally made it to my room.

Room Tip: The higher floors allow for a better view of the beach.

Stayed at the Gullwing the week before christmas for 5 nights. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 10 floor, we had a slight problem wih the bedding and the cleaning,but the front desk sorted it out .The weather was sunny,warm and the beach walks were excellent. The area is great for places to eat the Fish House Bonita Springs was a favourite.We have stayed at the Gullwing at christmas time previously and will stay again when in that area again on our travels.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor room great views of the bay and beach

My husband and I had booked for a room at another hotel to which we checked in and were horrified at the amount of dissapointment and disgust in our room and surroundings with a very rude staff team.

We decided to leave and drive down a bit. We found Gull Wing and booked a room. To our surprise, when we got up to our room and walked in we couldn't believe the room we were actually going to be staying in for a few days. 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen accompanied by a beautiful balcony, self bar, and for football Sunday, our nice sized tv! :) We were both very impressed by the staff, location, and our beautiful room. We will be booking again on behalf of my husbands birthday! Thank you for the great experience at your beautiful resort!

We have stayed at the Gullwing for years and I can't say enough great things about it. The rooms are huge and well stocked, beach is right out the back door and the pool is amazing. They have grills on the deck by the beach and the location is perfect.

I loved staying at the Gullwing! My sister found the condo when trying to plan a trip around a sand sculpting competition that didn't quite pan out the way we thought. But we were so glad we found - and stayed at - the Gullwing. It is a condo property but it seems as if the management rents out some of the condos that either aren't owned or the owners make the condos available to renters through the management staff.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom/2 bath condo on the 11th floor of the property. Our room faced the beach and therefore the beautiful sunsets. The condo was so spacious - one very large master bedroom with its own bathroom, 2 smaller rooms with a shared bathroom on the other end of the condo. There was also a nice sized kitchen (with all utensils, plates, cups, etc.), dining area, mini bar area, and comfortable living room. We really only cooked there one night but having the full fridge was great for snacks, drinks, lunches, etc. The screened in patio was fantastic - a great place to watch the sunsets and relax.

There is wonderful beach access, and the sand is a beautiful white! We loved the pool and the hot tub was great. The staff was also very friendly and helpful and the price was right.

I don't really have any "cons" other than that since it's a condo you don't get daily maid service. And the condo is toward the end of the island, so it takes a little time to get there from the main shopping and restaurant area of Ft Myers Beach. (We're not used to driving like 20 mph everywhere you go!)

There are plenty of restaurants within driving or walking distance, and there is a Publix grocery store within driving distance as well. The location is great, it was clean, friendly, and fun. If I ever make it back to Ft. Myers Beach, I will definitely stay here again!
