We have read all the less than stellar reviews about this property and are just dumbfounded that after 5 different times staying at this resort, we have always walked away with nothing but a great experience and memories. Unfortunately I think that some people are looking for fault in everybody and everything instead of making great memories to last a lifetime.
We have always requested to stay in one of "The Beach Villa" 2 bedroom/ 2 bath condo units next door to Pink Shell because of the direct ocean front views from the large screened in lanai, In unit washer/dryer, large fully stocked kitchen and the ability to hear the ocean waves crashing at night through the master bedrooms patio door or windows. That to us is the best way to be lulled to sleep after a fun filled day next to the pool, walking the beach, fishing, jet skiing, napping or going to Times Square for the sunset parties.
The 1st time we came down to stay we found out the hard way that since we used a private rental agency we found on VRBO, we could not use the " Pink Shells" amenities. That was hard to explain to a 5 year old who could look over and see the other kids playing under the Octopuss Pools waterfall.
Since then, we always book directy through the "Pink Shell" so we can use the 4 diffent pools, restraunts, poolside towels and drink service, arcade, ping pong, face painting and FREE daily breakfast buffett. There is not another Hotel, Motel or Resort on Fort Myers Beach that caters to your every need like this place does. You never need to lug towels, drinks, beach chairs, umbrellas back and forth to your room everday. Now that is a VACATION in my book.
