“Not what you would expect by the RCI pics and review.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

This was less than average place to stay. We stayed in room 209 as commented in other reviews - the room is not remodeled unless you believe that the 1970 wear out furniture is new. I went to the store and purchased bleach to clean the bathroom. The kitchen sink is broke, no vent in bathroom, and window unit air conditioner. The bedroom and living room are not separated by wall but bifold doors. The pool and the beach were both nice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We had a great stay in room 209. It was very affordable, especially considering it was spring break and we are used to staying off season in the fall with off season prices. Our unit looked very recently remodeled, very clean, had everything we needed, perfect for the 3 of us. The pool area was nice, too. Nice pool chairs, floats available. Bikes and canoes to borrow, nice gas grills to use. The only problem we had was our a/c kept freezing up. Maintenance came out to look at it, but we were gone most of the day every day anyway, and the ceiling fans made up for it at night. They told us another unit was on order already at checkout. I will definitely try to book this place again on our next FMB vacation.

Paradise for couples or small family. Landscaping, pool, and spa are beautiful. Shuffleboard, corn hole, ping-pong, volleyball, bicycles, kayaks, reading room, free morning coffee, and more. Right on the beach. Units are modern, clean, and well maintained. Home away from home with a view!

Room Tip: No fitness center but bikes and kayaks available at no charge.

Yes, the rooms are small. They are one bedroom units, and the beds are full size, not queen size. They are very clean and cozy. Definitely fine for a couple, but cannot imagine taking kids or another couple to stay in the same room as you need to move the kitchen table and chairs to pull out the sleeper sofa. Provide a full size refrigerator, micro wave, stove stop, but no oven which I found a little strange. Many gas grills to accomodate your outdoor cooking, and they are covered so rain is not an issue. Had a great time and would stay there again.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Caribbean Beach Club. It's a smaller resort that has a really cozy feel. The rooms are slightly smaller than some 1 bedroom condos, but they were perfectly fine and adequate. The room was clean and in good repair. The bedroom bed was comfortable. My kids slept on the pull-out sofa. There were nice gas grills in the pool area. The pool was really nice and had quite a few covered patio tables and chairs. There was a tidal lagoon between the hotel and the gulf. At low tide the lagoon was to my ankles and at high tide about half way or more to my knees. The lagoon had a lot of tadpoles and attracted many varieties of birds. The beach sand was really white and the surf was really light. The hotel is on the quiet end of Estero Island and the other end has a quaint town with lots of bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed the stay and would definitely go back.

We vacation in Fort Myers Beach twice each year and normally stay at the Mariner's Boathouse. The rooms at this resort are REALLY small. They say each room can acomodate four, however if you need to pull out the sleeper sofa, good luck figuring out where the rest of the furniture will go. For two the rooms are fine, more than that, pick another place. Also an oddity - we had a ground floor room bordering the pool, family members had a second floor room with gulf view lanai - they had a terrible problem with ants in their room the whole week. The grounds are really nice though - nice big pool, and great hot tub. Location is perfect too - on the quiet end of Fort Myers Beach close to Santa Marini plaza which has a couple of good restaurants and shops.

We loved the room and location! It was 5 miles from the main strip, which was perfect for our family. However, the staff was very curt and unfriendly. One of the staff members actually marched out to the pool to remove the children who were diving...........yes, I said diving in the six foot area. The poor mother had to remove all of her children and go into the office to talk about this grave violation. How many hotels/motels do you know that do that?
