“Great location, low-key, perfect for young families!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We had a fantastic stay in mid-April here!! Our apartment was well-appointed and modern, clean, roomy, and came with all the necessary amenities. Located directly on the beach - easy walking distance to the local beach tiki-bar and a protected wetland, as well as beach-based activities (paddleboarding, parasailing, beach cabana rentals, bike rentals across the street) so there was plenty to do. Publix grocery market was a short drive and both CVS and 7-eleven were walking distance if you forgot something. It's located away from all the FMB nightlife and doesn't have all the resort-type of planned activities if that what you are looking for, but it was the PERFECT home-away-from-home for excursions with young children to Lovers Key, kayaking, biking, and beach activities. The staff were helpful and we had access to laundry and grills on site. Full kitchen was stocked with pots/pans/baking dishes as well as serving dishes. Housekeeping on request for a fee but we didn't find it necessary. GREAT value as I feel we got a lot of space and comforts of home for less than some single hotel rooms in the same area.

We just spent a great weekend at Gulfview Manor Resort in Fort Myers Beach. The staff was super friendly and really accommodating. The location was right on the beach on the quieter part of Estero Island. We could see the beach from both sides of our apartment. Our room was really big and had a full kitchen, two twin beds in the bedroom, a big living room, and a screened balcony. The entire facility was very clean. The pool area was really nice as well and there seemed to be plenty of parking. Ask about getting 50% off if you are for police, fire fighters and military.

We just returned from our stay at the Gulfview. I have to admit I was a little hesitant after reading a few negative reviews but the many positive reviews outweighed the negative. I am so glad that we did stay. We are in our 50's stayed with another couple in a two bedroom. The condos are a little dated, but clean, and comfortable. We had no issues with the management. If you follow the rules you will have no issues with the management. This is an adult and family friendly resort. The views and access to the ocean and beach are amazing.

What can we say about how much we enjoy our time at Gulfview Manor? The location is right on the beautiful beach, the apartment is immaculate, the staff is totally professional, the walkability to the movie theatre, CVS, Santini Plaza, other amazing restaurants, etc - it's all simply perfect!! Ken and Terri are incredible managers - we love the rules, the feeling of safety, and knowing that whatever we need is just a request away. The office staff is the best and whenever we have a question about anything, they are helpful every time. We have told many of our friends to come here, and every person we have told, have felt the same positive feeling we have. We usually make our reservation for the next year right on the spot, since we don't want to miss a year of coming to this wonderful vacation destination.

Stayed at the Gulfview on a recommendation. 2 mid 50's couples in a 2 bedroom for a week, the first week of March 2014.

Could not have been happier with the accomodations and service here. Great room, parking and ammenities. Beach is spectacular!

We like quiet and this place provided it. Pool was good, location was ideal. What more can you ask for?

Room Tip: The higher your room, the better.

First of all, I'd like to say a word to all the "Ken bashers" out there - STOP! I don't think there's another hotel manager nout there that takes more pride in making sure that the accomodations are clean and comfortable. My wife and I love the fact that we can come down, and look forward to a spotless apartment with a fantastic gulf view. Just watching and listening to the waves relieves any stress that you may have. Even the gas grills are spotless - when was the last time you saw that? Of course there are a few "rules", but it's really no big deal. At are age, the only noise I might be making after 11:00 P.M. would be loud snoring from the good night sleep I'm getting, and I have no desire at all to be drinking beer in a swimming pool, which, by the way, is kept at about 85 degrees - perfect for just being able to walk in and start swimming. i think that Ken and Julie, and everyone on staff, do a tremendous job of making sure your stay is as pleasant as possible. i hope that you will seriously consider staying here when you're in Fort Myers Beach.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a gulf front view. You'll be glad you did!

We travel to FMB a few times a year. Love the area!
First time staying at the Gulfview Manor, but will certainly return. We liked it so well, a one week trip extended to two weeks. Our 1st room was ocean front, one bedroom, then moved to two bedroom, ocean side view. Extremely clean and our stay was perfect. The Staff, particularly Julie, were fabulous! Very Customer Service oriented and friendly. Convenient location as many restaurants are very close by. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Oceanview, one bedroom has the perfect beach view. We also stayed in a two bedroom, side ocean view...
