“Nice Lodgings on the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was a pretty nice hotel, right near all of the action. Since it was right on the beach, I did not make use of the pool, but it looked pretty nice. They offer beach towels, which you can check out and return each day for free. The only things I did not like was the restaurant, which was adequate but not the fine dining advertised, and the drunken guests that swarmed the pool and poolside bar while I was there. The bartender was great, and he handled the unwanted attentions of a drunken female guest very well. I felt bad for him. As with the rest of the employees, he was helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends traveling to the area.

Dear HoosierHarridan,
Thank you very much for staying with us at DiamondHead Beach Resort. I'm pleased to hear that you had a wonderful experience and enjoyed our location on Fort Myers Beach. We put our guests close to the main entertainment district, yet far enough away for quiet relaxation as well. I'm happy to know that our bartenders did a great job taking care of everyone at the beach bar. We have the best team on the beach and I'm very proud of all of them. Thank you again and we are looking forward to seeing you back soon.

Sincerely,
Neil Hopgood - General Manager

We just got home from staying 5 nights at Diamondhead and had a great time! The entire staff were super nice and helpful. The location is perfect....ocean front and walking distance to everything. It was about a 10 minute walk to Times Square. We spent the days at the pool, as we did not want to spend $30/day for the chairs and umbrella at the beach. The pool was a blast! They had live music and great pool service with reasonably priced food and drinks. Be sure to meet with the bellman to get pamphlets and books with things to do. In one of the books is a BOGO entree you can use at the pool bar.

We also met with a timeshare salesperson for about an hour. We were not interested whatsoever, but were given a $150 room credit for our time. The woman we met with was very nice and did not pressure us...totally worth it. We used it to get massages :-)

The only downfall was that the WIFI in the room was not that great...and most of the ice machines were not in working order. Other than that, it was a great time!!!! If you're going to Ft. Myers...definitely stay here!

Room Tip: We were upgraded since it was off season... Paid for the cheaper room, but was upgraded to ocean fro...

Dear Heather B,
Thank you very much for staying with us at DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa. I'm excited to hear that you had a great time during your 5 night stay. Our staff truly does strive to give each guest a special experience. Our pool is a popular spot, and the live music and drink service really sets the mood for a great time. Thank you for letting me know about the WiFi, it is super fast but there are a couple spots we need to improve. Thank you again for staying with us and we do hope to see you back in the near future.

Sincerely,
Neil Hopgood - General Manager

The staff are all friendly and if you return yearly, you will see most of the save staff year after year. I have stayed on various floors with various views and really enjoy the screened in balcony, especially when I bring the grandchildren who love playing out there. The beach is just a few steps away from the resort and Austin the bellhop has great suggestions on where to go for dinner. It doesn't matter if you go doing the busy session or slow session, it is always clean and a very relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: Middle to upper floors. You can either watch the city lights or all the activities going on around...

We had a newly decorated one bedroom ocean view. Room 507. It was well appointed and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the oversized screened in balcony. The location, beach and pool were all terrific. The beach is excellent for walking and there are all kinds of water activities right outside your door step for a fee. Speaking of fees thought it odd that this higher end establishment did not provide beach chairs and umbrellas gratis. Instead you had to pay an additional $30 a day. With the pool overlooking the beach it appeared that most folks just hung out there at. no cost. Highly recommend.

First time to Ft Myers, location was awesome, teenagers walked to the Pier down the beach for shopping, I enjoyed the beach. Room was fabulous, had my own bedroom, morning paper delivered each morning, enjoyed coffee, reading the paper with a beautiful view of the gulf from my balcony. The food selection was plentiful, not pricey, enjoyed a dinner and breakfast with a great view. Staff was informative and suggested both food and activities,.
Thank you for a great mini vacation, I'll be back, well worth the trip.

Room Tip: Was on the 11th floor awesome view of pool and water.

Dear Terri E,
Thank you very much for staying with us at DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our location on Fort Myers Beach. We are close to all the entertainment in the Times Square area, yet far enough away to give our guests quiet relaxation. I'm also pleased to hear you enjoyed your large 1-bedroom suite and the daily newspaper. We try to make all our guests feel as if they are at their home away from home. Thank you again and we do hope to see you back soon.

We treated our newlywed son and daughterinlaw to two nights at this hotel. At registration they were immediately upgraded to a room on a higher floor with a lovely view of the water. The service was excellent. They got advice for activities such as sunset cruise and a good restaurant for dinner. Having a kitchen iln the room helped keep dining costs down. The only complaint they had was that the beach was not a private beach and on Sunday the crowd was a bit rowdy.

Room Tip: High floor to get a view of water

This was a good vacation for my husband and me in a long while. The area is within walking distance of many stores and beach activities. For the rainy season, we were able to spend quite a bit of time outdoors walking along the beach and enjoying the scenes from the pier. The only thing missing is pay-per-view television availability for those rainy afternoons.
