“A great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Have just returned fron twelve days at the Diamondhead and have thoroughly enjoyed it. This was our second time at this place and we enjoyed possibly more than the last time. After a difficult start due to a reservation problem, nothing to do with the hotel but the booking agent and still ongoing, we settled into Fort Myers beach life again. The room wasn't what we had wanted but due to the problem it was the best available and to be fair it was very comfortable. It was bright, clean and facing the pool and beach. If I had to be picky I would have liked the kitchenette to be a bit better equipped, not even a jug, and would have preferred the air con to run cooler but saying that I never mentioned it to reception so it can't have been that bad can it?
The hotel has a great beachside pool, is located far enough out of the main area yet close enouigh to walk in and has a very good team of staff who were all friendly and helpfull. The other guests there were all very nice and there was a good feel around the pool everyday, unlike some other big hotel further along the beach. There are some great bars all along the beach and we all felt safe whilst walking along the beach at anytime of the day. Plenty of restaurants bars and shops, all within walking distance, which all in all made for a great holiday. I'm sure we'll be back in time.

Room Tip: Opt for a gulf view room if available; it's worth it.

Recently back from a road trip to south west florida. We were doing some exploring of the area , when Sandy forced us to extend our visit a few days while she traveled up the coast. We stuymbled upon Diamond Head and immediately liked it. The accomodations were excellent, spacious suite type with great views of the gulf. The entire staff was freindly and extemely helpful, rooms were made up promptly everyday. They a beautiful pool area right off the beach with a nice outdoor bar area that also serves food. The hotel is located on the main road which has lots of shops and resteraunts and bars. Was nice when we didn't want to eat in the hotel. The beach is great. If I had anytjing negative to say it would br that the food in the hotel was mediocre. Otherwise a great find.

Here for a conference, thus the group price created increased value. I eat three times on the property and found the food excellent. Saturday afternoon had live music at the pool and the viewing of beach volley ball was inspirational. I may return this next fall.

Great location, you can walk to anything. Fun events all day long and in the downtown area every night. Very safe and easy to walk to/from the downtown/pier area via beach or sidewalk on street. Great, friendly service. Good food and bar service poolside. Third visit here and we will be back!

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views and less noise.

The accommodations are very nice, a one bedroom condo with a well furnished screened balcony with an excellent view even though we were on the less expensive side. Fort Myers beach was perfect for long walks and lounging. The water was calm but I was surprised that it was brown and not blue-green. This was blamed on dredging by the locals. The service was very good at check in and beach service was excellent for chair rental. Bar service was a bit slow. Drawbacks included hotel construction, a noisy environment due to construction, traffic, and a nearby fire station so there were frequent sirens day and night. Interior condo furnishings could be more comfortable especially the living room love seat. The bed was adequate but nothing special. The kitchen furnishings were good but a couple of wine glasses would have been a nice addition to the basic dishes. We bought and consumed a lot of bottled water as the local water had an odor. The bathroom had an odor also but it had a very nice tub/shower. All in all this beach condo compares equally to other condo rentals we have had in the past, primarily in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Room Tip: Ask about the direction your room faces. Ours faced east and we had strong morning sun. Even though...

View was good, nice deck to sit in the a.m. And have your coffee. The bed was very uncomfortable very saggy should have already been replaced, could not get much rest at night, the a.c. Was noisy when it kicked on or off so that kept us up also. Staff was friendly. Having the bar at the pool, hot tub area was something we liked. Beach/water was close that was a plus. Had breakfast at Chloe's not too bad. The rooms are on the small side. We stayed a week and this our fourth year in fmb. More than likely we will try a different place next year.

We stayed at Diamondhead Resort on our first trip to Ft. Myers. We are always a bit cautious when making a reservation at a hotel for the first time, and did a lot of research. It was clear, as soon as we arrived that we made the right choice. We were greeted by a very kind bellman, who unpacked the car for us, called the lobby to let them know we had arrived, parked our car, and carried out luggage up to our gorgeous room. Vickie, at the front desk was kind, informative and seemed truly pleased to have us as guests, and not an inconvenience. After settling in, we ventured to Cabanas for lunch. We were greeted as if we were long-time guests.our waitress brought us a newspaper to show us some places we may like to visit. Everyone greets you with a smile and a warm welcome. I have never seen so many people willing to help and make sure you have everything you need. Room was spotless, with a stunning sunset view. The balconies are screened in, assuming to keep bugs out in the summertime. The resort is close to everything you need. We will be back!

Room Tip: Corner suite has a great view and huge balcony. Definitely pay the extra $ to have a gulf view, it...
