“Best location on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We stayed for 6 nights for our honeymoon. It has the best location of any hotel on the beach. The front desk was super courteous. We loved our stay! One tip- if your room is on the north side of the hotel, ask to stay on floor 6 or higher- the garbage trucks come super early in the morning and it gets pretty loud.

Room Tip: All rooms have a toaster, mini fridge, dishwasher, kitchen sink, microwave and a few plates and othe...

I would highly recommend this hotel!!!! It had the friendliest staff at any hotel I've stayed at. The location is great, walking distance to the town square with lots of things to do. All the rooms have a wonderful Gulf view. We met the owner of the hotel who is from MN and he was really friendly also!

Room Tip: I would request a room with a pool view because the air conditioner units were a little loud. I wou...

We spent two nights at DiamondHead Beach Resort Hotel. It has nice amenities such as being beachfront, a large heated swimming pool and a hot tub. The bar is right next to the swimming area. It was fun watching a fiddler crab race. The room was very comfortable and was a suite with a nice sitting area and TV, kitchenette, refrig and microwave.
My husband and I wanted something casual the first night so we went to Chuck's Last Stop, just a short distance from the hotel. We didn't eat the next day until after church (The Baptist Church a mile south at 10:30 a.m.) Then we met with several friends at Doc Ford's on the waterfront harbor. We had various delicious seafood and drinks. I ordered their paella which was a new dish on the menu. Very large and good. We have stayed at the hotel before and really like it. The only downer was the weather. It was sunny but the temperature had dipped to the 40s and the wind was blowing hard. Dressed appropriately with a warm coat, it didn't spoil our stay too much. David B. who checked us in took extremely good care of us. He was very personable and helpful, suggesting places to eat and helping us find a church for Sunday and the worship time.

Room Tip: Try to get a Gulf Coast-front room. We were on the north side of the hotel overlooking the water. I...

Absolutely loved the hotel! Great place to stay, great staff. Great location. Huge balcony overlooking the pool and beach was definitely my favorite part. Just make sure to bring your own drinks with you to the pool or you will end up spending a fortune. I will definitely be back.

Had some problems at check in as the Travel Agent and Hotel had some disagreement and I was told by the hotel that my booking did not exist. I was told I would have to pay again when checked in. However after contacting the Travel Agency they had a discussion with the hotel and everything was resolved.
I had prepaid for the hotel through the travel agent and the cost was aprox £100 per night.
The rooms are exactly as advertised on their website, very good with a suite, kitchenette and high quality TV's etc. I was in a Gulf View and the view was fabulous.
The pool area is very good and the beach bar was good value and the service was excellent
No charge for parking in the complex and always plenty of space.
The hotel had numerous strong points, but the location was excellent, right on the beach but close enough to walk into the Times Square area for eatteries etc so we were not reliant on the car.

With regards to the area the only issue I noticed and this is not a fault of the hotel, the road network clearly cannot cope with the demand. So accessing / leaving the island when the weather is nice can be tedious. We arrived on a very nice day and it took us around 25 mins to get to the hotel as the traffic was horrendous. This was not a problem as the island is fairly self sufficient so we just didn't use the car.
The bars and restaurants in the area were very good, especially the Yucatan.

I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat and if we venture to Florida again this will be somewhere we will surely visit again

Room Tip: They are all good

Dear Cheapies,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us at DiamondHead Beach Resort. I assure you that each guest’s comfort/satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us and we will share your input with our staff in an effort to better your future experience with us – and all of our other guests’. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced at check in. Your Agency had cancelled your initial reservations when the dates of stay changed and we assumed your plans had changed as we did not hear back from the Agency. I am pleased to hear that our agents were able to accommodate your reservation and that our property and employees exceeded your expectations. In addition, the Town of Fort Myers Beach is meeting this week to discuss the peak season traffic congestion and looking at ways to alleviate the time it takes to exit the island this time of year. We look forward to you staying with us in future years.

Sincerely,

Neil Hopgood

I can't say enough good things about the DiamondHead Beach Resort Hotel! The staff are friendly, helpful and professional and the facility is very well-maintained and updated. The resort sits right on the beach and all the rooms have large screened-in balconies so you can keep your suite open to the breeze off the Gulf. We had a wonderful time and plan to return.

We only spent one night at the beach during our trip and had a beautiful room at the Diamondhead. The suite was very nicely appointed and very comfortable. The beach bar was under construction but it should be finished soon. Beach access is easy and the hotel is close to the center of the Fort Myers Beach pier and downtown area. The screened porches are great but my husband did not enjoy ours as much because we had a corner location that allowed us to see into other rooms/porches. I think this was called a Gulf View.

Room Tip: Avoid the ones where the building turns a corner. You want the ones that face straight out for more...
