“Great views from every window & walkway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

I live only an hour away, but this was a perfect weekend vacation. 8 of us had plenty of room in a 2 bedroom condo. Beds & furniture were very comfortable. Condo was very private & quiet and very well maintained with luxury resort details. Staff was great, we only had one meal there - food was excellent. The pools were wonderful, and the Beach was gorgeous. Definitely high on my list for a getaway.

Had an chance recently to spend a weekend at the Pink Shell. I had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and spacious, the staff was courteous and helpful and the food was also very good. The sunsets.......priceless!! I would recommend The Pink Shell to anyone looking for a great place to stay on Fort Myers Beach.

Room Tip: Book a room on the Gulf side

A few girlfriends and I decided we needed a "sleep over". We could not have picked a better venue than the Pink Shell. The room was gorgeous and the views were unbelievable. We had fun going from pool to pool, lying on the beach, and playing in the gulf. All the staff were friendly and made us feel like we were the only guests. We only had one night and we all did not want to leave. Hopefully we will be able to do this again, and I will definitely vote for the Pink Shell!

It sounds like your girls night out was perfect, playing in the pools and the beach at a fabulous resort is a great get-away! Especially at Pink Shell Beach Resort & Spa since we are located at the tip of Estero Island situated on 1,500 feet of sugary white sands, plus the beach is now about 5 times as wide due to the new beach restoration project. We sure do have a lot of beach front for relaxing and playing on the Gulf of Mexico.

I am very happy that you enjoyed your guest room and its interior amenities and took the time to relax and enjoy the spectacular view that all of our rooms offer.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We look forward to welcoming you all back in the future.

I'm a Fort Myers resident and had never been to the Pink Shell. My friends and I had a wonderful experience there. The staff were extremely pleasant, the food was wonderful and the amenities are out of a vacation guide. We watched a beautiful wedding on the beach, met honeymooners and still felt like it was our own private resort. What a great time.

Room Tip: Every room has an incredible view. You can't go wrong here.

I live within an hour's ride to Fort Myers Beach and this was my first time to stay at the Pink Shell. I came with a group of 7 other ladies. The front lobby and staff were very welcoming and friendly, as was everyone we encountered in the restaurants and throughout the resort. The suite was large and extremely comfortable. As soon as I went down to the pool and beach area, I felt instantly relaxed. I especially like the waterproof wristbands they give you as a key to the room - no worrying about losing it! Although I only stayed one night, I will definitely come back and spend more time. I loved it!

From the time we checked in until we left the next day, everything was wonderful at The Pink Shell. Sandy at the Front Desk was very nice and Cliff, the Concierge, was right there to help and answer questions. We were amazed at the size of our room. Couldn't believe how big the bathrooms are! We were in a 2-bedroom with a full kitchen looking over the Octopool and beach, which is huge. They were setting up for a small wedding on the beach...very nice!
Had lunch at Bongo's. They had a good selection on the menu and the food was tasty. Our server, Brady was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Oh, and also Stephanie who was training. It did start to rain so all the people from the pool and beach came to Bongo's. I was surprised that no one came to help the few servers who were on duty. You could tell that it really slowed down the kitchen and the bar service. But we were having a great time, so it wasn't too noticeable. After the beach, we spent some time in the adult pool. It was very quiet and relaxing.
Although we spent most of our evening in the room (too nice to leave it!), there was a lot going on downstairs...a beautiful sunset, movie by the pool. This was a great place for anyone to enjoy. There was quiet solitude being at the north end of the island (only thing north of the resort is a park), but close to the happenings near the bridge.
We received 2 free buffet tickets for breakfast - nice treat! They serve breakfast at Jack's, in the building next door to where we stayed - fabulous. Great fruit and one of the best made-to-order omelet stations I've ever seen. Our server, Ryan, was also very pleasant.
I can't speak to the housekeeping because we only stayed one night, but the room was spotless when we checked in.
As with any resort or hotel, there were little noises here and there, but I don't know how you could accommodate so many people without the sounds of operation. We will definitely stay at The Pink Shell again!

We just came for the weekend and we really didn't want to leave. My fiance and I love traveling and especially to the beach. We loved the size of the one bedroom villa, plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed several meals and cocktails on the huge porch! The staff was so friendly, even the maintenance/housekeeping/grounds team that we encountered in the elevator or while walking around the resort. There were times that we went off in our own little corner and felt like we were there alone and other times we jumped in the deep end of the octopool and felt like we were part of a big family reunion because everyone was there for the same reason as we were, to have fun! There is no pretense here. If you are a bit of a snob or used to staying at the Ritz Carlton, this might not be for you. Because it was down to earth, friendly, casual and fun. We loved it!

Room Tip: As for a room in the Captiva building. The porches are bigger!
