“GREAT HOTEL, LOVELY LOCATION!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We usually travel here by boat, tie up at the Marina with the capable & friendly assistance of Dave & Craig, and go have lunch. Sometimes we spend an hour or so at the beach afterwards and enjoy the view, the water & the myriad of sea life (don't take any living creatures--against the law!). We enjoy lunch at Bongo's, where Angela & Lauren take extremely good care of us :)

We recently stayed at the hotel and were equally impressed. We were on a high enough floor so the noise from the pool wasn't really an issue. If you love kids, you'll love this hotel pool. Not so much? They have an adult pool -- but we preferred the beach (where they just started table service!)

They treat you like you've been coming for years.....we will definitely be back :)

I have to say we have been wanting to visit the Pink Shell Resort for years now and was able to finally stay there this past week. I booked in early spring and was able to take advantage of the stay 4 nights get 1 night free. Stayed in the Captiva Villa 1 bedroom w/ 2 queen beds. Was very impressed how clean, spacious, and comfortable the beds were. The room also has a kitchen. The balcony was large and every room has beach view. We had friends staying in the main building (White Sands) in a 2 bedroom and there room was awesome as well. The pool area was very clean and never had an issue finding chairs both around pool area and beach. The staff was very friendly.

The resort stay included 2 breakfast buffets daily. The buffet was awesome !! They changed up the food daily. The un-motorized beach items & the newly added umbrellas/beach chairs were complimentary. This adds a great value to the resort. Bongos food was good as well. What impressed me was they use wristbands for key entry to your room and anywhere in the resort. Never have seen this in any hotel/resort. You can where them in the ocean/pool and you don't have to worry about losing those cards.

Overall we definitely will be back to the Pink Shell Resort. Already planning for next year to get a big group family/friends.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE RESORT...........

Room Tip: All rooms have a beach view. If you want to see the sunset need to stay on the north side of the bui...

Booked the hotel through Virgin Holidays. We arrived at 11pm after driving through rain storm from Tampa. Lovely welcome as fresh as you'd expect eight hours earlier.

Large living room/kitchen, huge bed for us, big sofa bed for kids. Exceptionally clean. Surprised to find that there was a daily maid service as part of the package which is a real bonus. Pool area terrific. Bar/restaurant a bit pricey as you would expect but not outrageous. Beautiful beach fantastically served by the hotel. Sunsets to die for.

Fort Meyers Beach can get busy but here you're right at the north end of the island and it's very quiet (but only 10 minutes' walk from the pier).

Top tip: when arriving in FM Beach, take the first right on driving over the bridge. Otherwise, after 15 minutes, you'll realise you've gone wrong if you go the other way (like us!).

Our 50th Anniversary spent at the Pink Shell Resort and Marina was beyond our expectations, from the private Sunset Dinner on the Beach to the efficient and friendly staff, to the beautiful view from our clean, attractive room. They made this very important occasion that much more special. The Pink Shell goes above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome. This was our first visit, and will definitely be in our plans for the future.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor of the main building and we were completely satisfied.

This is the perfect resort for families. My family have been staying at pink shell for many years and were never dissapointed. Beautiful. The free American breakfast was very good and the Different pools were a lot of fun. Quality in furniture mattress, linens.

The beach is one of the best I have been, including the ones in the Caribbean.

Room Tip: I like the upper floors and the white sand villas.

This is the second time I had stayed at the Pink Shell, the entire stay was very pleasurable from the check in to check out. The staff are all very professional and willing to go the extra mile to help. The rooms are comfortable and clean, an over all excellent experience.

I'm from Nebraska. Beach trips are mandatory for Nebraskans and we've beached all over the world. On a 10 day road trip from Tampa to Ft Myers, the Pink Shell was the nicest and best value we found. The Pink Shell is now my new Beach getaway location. Short easy flight, great beach, some super restaurants, great location.
