“Perfect vacation place; yucky ocean water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

My daughter and I spent a few days there a couple of weeks ago. The staff was real nice and the suite was clean and comfortable. Food at Chloe's and The Cabana is good. Though the suite comes with a kitchenette, we really didn't use it other than to store bottled water in the fridge. Our suite had pool and ocean view. As others have mentioned previously, the pool and Cabana close early; therefore, there is really no nightlife there other than the lounge. We found ourselves driving to the restaurant/tourist area most of the evenings/nights. The first day we felt comfortable enjoying some beach activities, such as the jet skis. The water was not clear or blue/green as we expected. It reminded me of the water of Galveston, Texas. The 2nd day we were there, it rained quite a bit and the water really turned murky and not very appealing and pretty much stayed the same. Unless they do something about the state of the water around the Ft. Myers area, we doubt we will be returning. It's a shame because the Diamondhead Resort is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor as you get a better view.

Dear Chita74,
Thank you very much for staying with us at DiamondHead Beach Resort. I'm happy to hear you and your daughter enjoyed your time on Fort Myers Beach. Florida has received a tremendous amount of rain this season and that has contributed to the murky water. The water does clear up after a little bit of time as you can see by the photos we have online. Thank you again for staying with us, we hope to see you back soon!

Sincerely,
Neil Hopgood - General Manager

I'm a Fort Myers local and like to go to the beach in front of the DiamondHead. Holiday Water Sports rents chairs for a reasonable cost and they have some great water sports activities like waverunners and paddleboards. The Diamondhead property is well taken care of, there is absolutely no trash on their beach and during the day you can hear the music from their pool area, it is not crowded or obnoxious like the beach areas down by the Lani Kai or the pier. They have a great Cabana Bar to grab lunch and cocktails at, I absolutely love the pineapple chicken quesodillas! I highly reccommend spending your beach days here :)

Dear ALK726,
Thank you very much for spending your beach time with us! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy the quality beach environment that is provided. There's nothing like relaxing the day away on the sand and then having the convenience of Cabanas Beach Bar right behind you. You're right, the Pineapple Chicken Quesadillas are delicious! Thank you again and we hope to see you on the beach soon.

Sincerely,
Neil Hopgood - General Manager

Came for a weekend with friends. Staff was wonderful, room spotless and the amenities in the kitchen perfect. Maintenance requests were handled promptly. Only disappointment was having t walk through the bar to and from the beach.

Our stay at this resort couldn't have been more perfect. The guy who showed us the rooms recommended a different room to us that had an unbelievable view of the gulf and the lights of the city. We chose that great corner room and had room service bring us dinner and set it up on the balcony so we could dine while watching the sunset. It couldn't have been more romantic. The service in this hotel is excellent. We can't wait for our next stay in this room with a view Hotel!!

The Diamondhead Beach Resort Hotel was a very comfortable hotel to stay at. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms were clean. The rooms also come equipped with mini fridge, microwave, dishwasher , even dishes and drinking glasses. The food at both restaurants was good, the drinks in the lounge were good as well. The pool area is setup for plenty of room to layout in a chair and if not too windy use one of the umbrellas. They do not charge for parking as some other hotels do. Overall we had a very enjoyable weekend.

Room Tip: If you want a great view ask for beach view on a high floor.

My husband and I stayed at the Diamondhead for one week last year and it was amazing. The staff is wonderful, the room was clean and comfortable, and we had a million dollar gulf view. I would recommend it to everyone we know. Cant wait to go back there.
Deb & Gary Beyer

Room Tip: I recommend a room with a gulf view. We woke up to see dolphins swimming in the morning.

This resort was definitely the cream of the crop in Fort Myers beach. Great spacious, modern and clean rooms. Room service, beach views, pool and hot tub with outside bar. Also the room we stayed in had a nice kitchen with refrigerator and microwave, even a small stovetop. I would definitely recommend this hotel to another couple or family.
