“Made the start of a bad trip brighter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

DiamondHead is amazing! Checked in on August 12 for 3 nights and loved it. Had originally rented a beach house Fort Myers Beach and for unforseen reasons had to seek alternate accommodations. We were a group of 10 checking in around 10pm and the staff was amazing at booking our rooms and accommodating us all on the same floor.

Very friendly staff. Pool is slightly small, but not too bad. Didn't seem crowded on our visit. Beach has powdered sugar sand. Parking was never an issue. The hallways are open air. Rooms are great (and clean)! Very spacious and amazing beachfront view from our room. Balcony is to die for! King size bed and sofa bed. Showers were a little short for everyone else, but perfect for my 5'2" height ;) Loved that we had a mini fridge, toaster, microwave, and dishwasher.

Drinks are reasonably priced at Cabanas. We had a great dinner experience at Chloe's also! Jeremy our server was very friendly and patient with our group. Petite prime rib was delicious.

There is a $15 resort fee that includes parking onsite, wifi, newspaper, use of pool towels, etc. I would definitely return to DiamondHead if I'm ever in the Fort Myers Beach area again.

On our night before a trip to Key West we stayed in the Diamond Beach resort. Derek is a friendly guy a advised us to take a 'rental bike' to visit the pier. We had a nice plain dinner (schrimps) at 'Pete 's' with live music and street artists. The pool at the hotel is somewhat small if you stay longer, but the parking facilities are excellent.

Stayed here for two nights in a club room on the 7th floor which had a fantastic view of the ocean. The room was very well equipped with fridge, dishwasher, cooking utensils - even a cork screw! The bedroom was an acceptable size but the wardrobe was small. Lots of drawer space, room safe and free wifi which was good. The shower area was very clean but looked a little tired. Pool area was good although the sun beds were very close to each other. Direct access to the beach with foot showers just off the pool area. We ate at the restaurant and had a very nice meal. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. Self parking was very straight forward with a good size parking lot. The location was very good both for beach and restaurants/ shops.

Hotel was nice and clean. Pull out couch was comfortable and everything in the room seemed newer (couch, beds, etc) Screened-in porch was great to keep bugs out.
We loved the pool activities and the amenities offered at the beach (wave runners, parasailing, etc.)
I did feel a bit "nickeled and dimed" by having to sign out beach towels and purchase a laundry card. I understand the need for keeping track of towels, but the laundry card was a bit much (not cost-wise, just annoying). I am not an expert on coin laundry machines, but they seem to work for other places, so why not here? Anyway, if you return the laundry card to the front desk , the $5 charge gets removed from your bill - just an extra hassle to run a load of laundry.
Overall, our stay was relaxing and fun!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a great view - we selected "pool view" but it overlooked both t...

We are fairly new to the Fort Myers area so this was our first time staying on the beach. What a great hotel! The location is perfect. All of the rooms were one bedroom suites with a mini kitchen. The refrigerator is not full size but big enough to stock with drinks and use for leftovers and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils. The lanai was enormous and had a great view of the beach as well as the pool. Since this resort does not allow anyone under the age of 25 to rent a room, if you decide to go over Spring Break, you will not have to worry about a bunch of drunk college kids swarming the hotel. The staff was fantastic. The front desk agent that checked us in was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Janet, our server at Cabanas was incredible! She took great care of us. Wendy, at the pool was very friendly as well. The server at the pool whose name I cannot remember (Matt?) was also on top of things and very nice. The next time we need another staycation we will definitely come back.

We stayed at diamondhead for 5 nights and are already counting down the days until we can go back next year! From the time we checked in the entire staff was welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a great size and we were able to save money on breakfast by utilizing the kitchenette in the room. The oversized balcony was also a huge plus and the view was outstanding. Ask for a higher floor, the view is worth is!! We spent a lot of time at Cabanas for lunch and happy hour, it felt very tropical and had an awesome ocean breeze. We really had no reason to leave the hotel for happy hour, it would be nice if the bar was open later though! Make sure to look for Randy at the bar, by the first day he already had our drink orders memorized and was a ton of fun! The hotel is in easy walking distance to everything but is also far enough away from all the hustle and bustle so it is still pretty quiet. I will definitely be returning here soon and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: The higher floors have an awesome view!

This was an awesome hotel. We arrived on Friday after noon (8/1) and was greeted by a very nice bell man. I didn't catch his name, but he is a tall blonde gentleman which was very pleasant and welcoming. he took my bags to my room and helped me unload my vehicle since we were traveling with a 3 month old.

Check in was on the 2nd floor. Very cute front desk. Felt very warm and welcoming. the front desk reps were very professional and kind. They got us in very quickly and gave me a free upgrade to a premium room for my bday! 10th floor beachfront. room 1008. AMAZING VIEW OF THE OCEAN. This was a club level room. The rooms were very clean and modern. Big balcony and all the furniture was up to date too.

We got to witness 2 weddings on the beach that weekend. It was a beautiful view. I would definitely return. The staff was friendly, the drinks at the bar were strong (and fairly priced) and the ocean was very nice.

Room Tip: Go club level all the way!!!!!!!! Great views!
