“Great vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Fantastic accommodations...felt like home. The staff was friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. The onsite restaurant (flippers) was also an excellent experience. The food was good and the staff were very attentive. It does not have an onsite beach, but the one right across the road has superb shelling (almost as good as Sanabel) and the sand is like baby powder. I have and will continue to recommend this resort to anyone that is interest in going to the Ft. Myers beach area. We intend to revisit this resort again in the spring. 5 STARS!

My husband and I just returned from spending 5 nights at Lovers Key Resort for our 20th ann. The "room" (condo) was beautiful. We both said "wow"! As we walked in 505. Full kitchen, huge bathroom, watched dolphin and manatee from or deck, great pool. The staff is the friendliest I have encountered at any hotel. Perfect place to stay, BUT, no real 'beach'.

We are having a great time at Lovers Key Resort. Fantastic bay view from unit #1105. Very good free breakfast at Flippers, we are seeing manatees, dolphins galore, lots of rosette spoonbills and white pelicans.

I highly recommend this resort for a vacation while visiting the area or for a relaxing getaway close to home!!

Cheers, donna and dave

Room Tip: Upper floor with a bay view is our favorite.

my Husband and I was at this beautiful place October 3 to October 11 , we celebrated our 31 wedding anniversary there , The staff was great , the views fantastic , we stayed in the pint house over looking the bay, the bedroom has a picture window , so every morning when you wake , you see dolphins, sea turtles , so many different kinds of birds , the pool and hot tubs so relaxing , flippers right next door , the best food ; people we would meet in town would ask if we ate at flippers , I think its a house hold name, the price we paid for a week, you cant beat it for everything you get at this resort , you get breakfast every morning at flippers , that is in your package, so if you want a great place at a great price , to spend with the one you love , try lovers key resort , we are making plans for next year, thank you to the staff , for making us feel at home , see you next October for our 32 anniversary.

Room Tip: the pint house number 4 over looking the bay

We stayed at Lover's Key Resort for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Staff was friendly and efficient. The building is older but well maintained. Swimming pool is large with a beautiful waterfall in the center. The hotel has a restaurant onsite called Flipper's; we only had breakfast but were completely satisfied with our complimentary breakfast. The view was exceptional from our balcony and the accommodations were very nice. The resort is situated right on the bay, however, their "beach" is only accessible when it's low tide. But, Lover's Key State Park is just across the street and has a wonderful 2.5 mile stretch of beach directly on the Gulf of Mexico so we were OK with that. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and will more than likely be back ourselves.

Room Tip: All the rooms have private balconies; I would suggest asking for one that faces west so you can enjo...

We stayed at Lovers Key Resort a couple of nights, location is perfect, close to Ft Myers Beach and Bonita Beach. Very clean suites with breathtaking views.
Service is impeccable. Our waitress Lora was very sweet and professional... We'll be back for sure.

Our first visit to this resort - what a treat and great value. We had asked for a high level floor for the view and were not disappointed with 1105 - spectacular. Big room with lounge, kitchen area, bedroom and shower/bath facilities. Lovely balcony in the shade first thing and in the sun last thing. The guys couldn't have helped anymore and for a quiet 3/4 days or weekend this is a perfect location. State park just by and Fort Myers Beach only 5 mins away in a car. Flippers is great for breakfast, drinks, lunch and dinner. I can't rate the Resort high enough.
