“Romantic getaway in our backyard.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

For those of us who live in the Naples, Ft Myers area, we have a fantastic resort tucked away on Black Island called "Lovers Key Resort" Ever since 2000 we have been going yearly for a great staycation right in our backyard. Alway getting room 1105 or 1205 with the absolute best view of the bay. Floor to ceiling windows looking out on all of the waters wildlife swimming by. Great shows from the dolphins and manatee's swimming by or feeding on the favorite morsels right in front of the resort. Beautiful sunsets every night can be seen from pool deck, restaurant tables or right from your room. Early in the am you can sit on your private balcony with a great cup of coffee watching the local fisherman as they head out to the Gulf of Mexico to get their catch for the day.
The rooms are condo type accommodations fit for a king. kitchen, living room, master bedroom with a bathroom big enough for 8 people. Check out their web site for details and pictures. Pool, hot tub, a beach to pull your boat up to. A great restaurant, Flippers is located right on the property with the best view of the bay found anywhere locally. Fantastic food, drinks and service. The lead chef, Jaun, meanders out into the dinning space to greet and discuss the evenings specials and whatever else pops up. Eric, the manager, keeps thing flowing smoothly and ensures the drinks are never left empty to long. Living in SW Florida for 15 years were lucky to find Lovers Key and Flippers at the very beginning and have been enjoying both ever since.

Nice, clean, comfortable room overlooking the water. It was more like a little apartment. We remarked that we felt we were on a cruise ship - lots of boats going by and the water was peaceful. We loved the restaurant on site called Flippers - great food and staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool/water area.

Stayed at Lovers Key Beach Resort in July 2013 for our anniversary. This is a great condominium resort for the price of a hotel. The units have kitchens and a great view regardless of which side of the building you are located.
We were able to book a package which included two nights with two breakfasts, a $25 dinner certificate at Flipper's on site, and a bottle of champagne.
The location is great as the building is located across the road from Lovers Key Beach, which is a state park with a beautiful unspoiled beach. Fort Myers Beach is just across the bridge on the north side of the island which offers lots of great restaurants. Bonita Beach and Naples are several miles to the south within easy driving distance and also offers great restaurants and things to do.
The resort is very clean, and the staff is very friendly. This is one of the best places I've ever stayed, and I plan to keep going back every year.
If you're looking for a romantic get away that is a more quiet location, but within easy access to great restaurants and an abundance of things to do, I highly recommend this resort. Flippers restaurant is located on site on the bay, and has great food and drinks. There is also a pool with a waterfall and a hot tub on site.
Lovers Key Beach has two snack bars, the main one inside the park entrance has snacks and drinks, and a gift shop. At south beach which is a free tram ride away, there is Hurricane Charley's which has sandwiches, ice cream, and drinks. It only costs $8 a car load to get into the park, which is well worth it. This is one of the most beautiful beach parks in the state of Florida.

We decided to celebrate our anniversary with a staycation. My wife called and found out the differences in the rooms. After a little discussion, she determined which room would be best to celebrate our anniversary. We received a complimentary upgrade to a penthouse with free appetizer and breakfast at Flipper's. The food at Flipper's was some of the best we have ever had.Our biggest disappointment was that we did not know it was that good, or we would have gone before. It was a great experience and would strongly recommend it to couples and families.

Our first time visiting Lovers Key Resort, saw good reviews and decided to check it out. Wow! What a pleasant surprise. From the moment we checked in, Viviana was so welcoming, kind and helpful. Our suite was outstanding, complete with an amazing view, it was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. Our housekeeper, Santa, was a pleasure to see daily, she was always smiling and pleasant. For the best food in the entire Ft. Myers Beach area look no further than Flippers, located on site at the resort. We had the pleasure of having Tracy as our server several times during our stay, she's absolutely one of the best, very accommodating, friendly and attentive. Ray was also one of the stars there. The food is not only great, but Chef Juan Cruz is seen regularly out interacting with guests making sure they love their food. This place is first class all the way and we'll be back.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the view. 6th floor was great.

My husband I shared our honeymoon weekend here this past February. We live locally and wanted something close by, but yet provide an escape for our celebration.
The weather could not have been worse that weekend; cold with wind gusts of 40 mph! Needless to say, our choice of outdoor entertainment was limited. Even so, the employees of Lovers Key Resort were so accommodating and friendly; giving of themselves in every aspect to make our stay successful.
The onsite restaurant, Flippers, provides a high quality, 5-star menu. Delicious, and eye appealing plating.
We have decided to return every year for our anniversary; why drive or fly for hours, when we have such a gem in our backyard!

P.S.: Thank you again for the complimentary, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne that were awaiting our arrival!
