“Wonderful Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This was our first time at Gullwing. We have previously stayed at other Sunstream resorts, but this year we wanted a 3 bedroom oceanfront condo. Beautiful, spacious and clean. Georgous view of the ocean from our balcony. Pool is small and very crowded but the beach is terrific.

Room Tip: Pick oceanfront, but in the higher rooms as to avoid pool noise.

During our 3 weeks Florida roundtrip we were looking for a beach hotel at Fort Myers Beach. We found GullWing on TripAdvisor and made a reservation for 3 days based on the good reviews. Check in was quick and the staff was helpfull. We expected a large condo, but when we entered, it exceeded our expectations. The condo is huge and spotless!! The halway is endless, the living room is gigantic with a separate wet bar and dining space. The open kitchen is well equipped and also has a bar. Bedrooms are very good and the master bedroom has a separate large walk-in closet. We had a beach side condo and we loved the balcony. It was large with enough furniture, completely covered with a thin mosquito net. This held the mosquitos out, but we could see right through it and we did. What a view!. The beach of Fort Myers Beach is like 100 meters wide and covered with almost white powder sand, beautiful. We spend a lot of time on the balcony, watching the beach, the sea and the sunset. Master bathroom is huge with a jacuzzi and separate shower. This is the only negative point that I could find: the water pressure is very low. GullWing offers luxurious condo's, so you expect water pressure to be good. The swimming pool is fine, with enough sun beds. From the pool there is a wooden walk path to the beach. Also there is a separate section with a number of outside Weber kitchens/grills for guests to be used. At the front desk they offer complimentary coffee/tea the whole day and they have games and books that you could lend. There is a CVS on walking distance, or you can lend a free bike and a Publix on 5 minutes drive. Thank you very much GullWing for a few unforgettable days. I give a 5 star rating!

Room Tip: The beach front condo's have an awesome beach view

We have stayed here at least 5 times and found it by accident. We love being right on the beach,the pool and the grills. We had a mix up on rooms one time which Curt remedied it immediately,he was not able to give us the room we reserved but made it right. We went last November for our 20th anniversary. We cannot wait to go again in January.

We reserved at Gullwing last minute. The condo was in great shape and had everything we needed. Even a mixer to make cookies.
The beach is great and vast! Plenty of space for everyone, lots of quaint restaurants close by.
The pool was ok. They had a nice grilling area next to the pool with 4 or 5 grills for personal use.
The only cons are that it is very far south on the island and in the condo 2 of the bedrooms didn't have curtains to block out the light and the shower in the master bath was a little claustrophobic. .. but the tub made up for it. :)
We stayed in a Bayview 3 bedroom condo. It was my husband, 2 year old and I. And my sister, brother in law and their 2 teenage kids. Everyone had great things to say and wants to go back.
We went in early summer and there was plenty of people to make it enjoyable, but not too many to make it crowded.
When in town try The Sandbar Grille, the ice cream parlor at the Santorini plaza and the steakhouse.

Dear Annahm,
Thank you very much for staying with us at GullWing Beach Resort. I'm excited to hear that you and your family and a great time with us and found the large suite to be perfect for you needs. Our goal is to always make our guests feel as if they are at their home away from home when staying at GullWing. We are located on the quiet end of Fort Myers Beach, but there's still many cute shops and restaurants within walking distance. Guests can also take the Beach Trolley to the north end for only a quarter. Thank you again and we do hope to see you back soon.

Sincerely,
Curt Brenner - General Manager

My wife and I have stayed here many times over the years. Always hate to leave and always looking forward to returning. Great location wonderful accommodations. Beach side condos are our first choice. Have stayed in condos from the side of the building as well, they are also very nice and offer relatively good views of the Gulf and the bay across the street.

Visited the property several times and used the three bedroom unit which is great for larger families or groups wanting to stay together. Quiet location with a white sandy beach and warm gulf water, pool area is nice but a little on the small side and can be a little crowded during peak summer travel season. New concession stand is a nice touch and ice cold slushies are perfect for cooling off in the sun. Rooms are spacious and more like a condo with good kitchen and dining area which is great if you want to cut back on the eating out expenses. Rooms are starting to feel a little dated and in room wifi is very slow in comparison to regular home use and hi-def TV's are still on a regular signal??

Overall it's a great place to stay for a larger group or family, quiet end of the island, picturesque, great beach but getting to the point where it needs an in room update to some of the facilities.

Those slushies are perfect for hot summer days. We are always in the process of improving the property and do have many new upgrades planned.

Parking was limited to 2 cars and we have a large family. We had to park a mile down the road which was very inconvenient, 3rd room was not made available to us. It was in our room but locked. Maid service is not available per day without fee. Free coffee. Nice location. Good use of free bikes.

Dear Maytei8,
Thank you very much for staying with us and for taking the time to give us your feedback. I hope you had a great time during your stay with us. Yes, we have to limit the number of cars each unit has to two so that we have enough space on property for everyone to park their cars. Our condos do have 3 bedrooms but if the guest does not request 3 bedroom and only requests 2, we lock the extra bedroom so that it is kept clean. That way we are able to give you a better rate on your room. Thank you again for staying with us and we do hope to see you back soon.

Sincerely,
