    Fresh, comfy, clean, affordable and fun
    Fresh new rooms. Comfy beds. Super fluffy pillows. Excellent roomy showers. Kitchen's cookware was the heavy duty kind, not the cheap stuff. Had everything we needed to cook meals. Remember to buy your own butter/ oil/salt/pepper. Clean large fridge with ice maker. AC is cold and plenty of ceiling fans. We opted for the 2 bd. 2 bath with a teenager. So glad we did. We all had privacy from each other unlike at your usual hotel room. Friendly staff. 24 hr. self laundry room. (Use the laundry app for two free washes) We enjoyed our stay and the sunset views from our balcony. Every once in a while we could hear the workers below setting up, not a huge deal. We also heard the TV in the room next door, but we think they had the volume on max. Nothing a call to the front desk can't solve. Bonus, there was a coffee shop (not very friendly workers, but good coffee) and plenty of restaurant choices. The shops below close pretty early (6 p.m.) but that makes for a quiet stay in the evenings. We will definitely be back. Love that security is out and about. I hope the cleaning staff can keep up the good work once everyone finds out about this place.
    Thank you for your recent visit to Fishermen's Village and for choosing us for your stay! We appreciate your kind and honest comments and the complimentary review! We look forward to your return!

    Great place to visit
    We were in Punta Gorda for the Holidays. Our neighbor recommended that we visit Fisherman’s Village. The visit was totally worth it. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It had several stands with different decor to have your picture taken. All the stores had beautiful decorations and specialized gifts. We had a get time there. The only thing we did not do is eat there because the restaurant at the end of the village was full and we did not want to wait. Totally worth the visit.

    Wonderful experience
    My family and I spent the weekend at the Fishermans Village Resort while we were in town visiting family. We had a wonderful experience! The room was beautiful, large and clean. It had a great balcony which was the perfect spot to watch the stunning west coast sunsets. It was just a short walk downstairs to some great restaurants and nice shops. While driving back home my son realized he may have forgotten his beloved stuffed rabbit in the bed. He has slept with this rabbit every night for almost 5 years and was so upset when he realized he didn’t have it. You can’t buy them anymore and I thought I was going to have to break his heart and tell him the rabbit would be gone forever. I quickly called the resort and a wonderful lady Nicole answered the phone. I explained the situation and she graciously went on a hunt for the rabbit. After being unsuccessful in finding the rabbit at first she didn’t give up and continued to look in every possible place. One day after checking out of the resort, the rabbit was at our front door. She found it!!! She made one little boy so very happy!! The staff went above and beyond for us and I am so very thankful! We will definitely be back when in town again.
    Thank you for very much for choosing Fishermen's Village Resort for your recent stay! We so appreciate you taking the time to share a testimonial about your experience! Our staff prides themselves in going above and beyond to please our guests. We look forward to your return!

    It’s always fun
    For eating, drinking, boating, shopping or just people watching this is an iconic spot in SW Florida. Harpoon Harry’s is probably the most popular eatery as it overlooks Charlotte Harbor and offers special water views. But there are other fine spots. There’s something to appeal to everyone and the protected open air shopping is a delight in the hot Florida weather. This mixed use development is a tremendous success and worth a visit. The only downside is the parking: you might have a bit of a walk but golf carts are zooming about picking up folks who need a ride. I don’t go there often but when I do I always enjoy myself.

    Fun stop while boating
    My husband, I, and three of our friends arrived here by boat. We immediately went to a restaurant and waited for a table; because it was March, it was a long wait. Our lunch turned into a late lunch, albeit a very good one. After lunch we strolled around and looked in the shops. Most of the shops are small so they were literally packed shoulder to shoulder. We tried to stay out of most of them although we had been in them before. Seeing how many people were jamming themselves together without masks, we opted to mostly window shop. There are a lot of gift shops here that run the gamut of cheap trinkets for kids to more expensive items for adults, mostly with a coastal theme. We appreciate the boat tie downs as this is a fun place to go when boating. It is also VERY popular with people who drive there too.

    The best place to stay on a SW Florida Vacation
    This place was wonderful! Fabulous restaurants (Harpoon Harrys, The Village Seafood restaurant and Good Ole Days were 3 you have to eat at places. The Suites at the village are some of the cleanest hotels my family and I have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly, it's a dog friendly hotel, it's on the Peace River/Charlotte Harbor and it's just perfect! There's a marina for boat rentals of cruises. The seafood restaurants are extremely good with a variety in their menus and we booked our first stay as a recon for our July 4th weekend which we are certainly looking forward to. This is a new type of Tin City of Naples, only super new, wide open air, very nice shops, eateries etc. So relaxing. You have to try this place and I'm sure you'll come back like we are.
    Thank you for your recent visit to Fishermen's Village and your exemplary review! We are so glad you are returning to stay with us for the July 4th weekend. It is going to be a wonderful, memorable weekend!

    Boring
    Unless you are a dedicated shopper skip this crowded tourist trap. The open air / under boat shed type high roof gave a sun cover which was not needed on this cool day. Typical stores and merchandise. Several restaurants were adequately busy. Good views but few places to really enjoy them without being seated at a restaurant

    Unique items in a charming setting
    Great mall. Many shops with unique items. Be sure to check out Caribongo's. They have tee shirts and other items that change in the sunlight. You can see them using their "sunshine light" machine. On the water with a marina that has boat tours and fishing trips. Nice charm and character. Several restaurants and bars. Outdoor dining with music when we went. At Christmas time there are many decorations and lights. A fun place to go and spend some time. A large portion was being renovated so more shops or a restaurant may be coming.

    OK, but seems like a work in progress
    Good location, and plenty of free parking (always appreciated). We went there as we were booked on one of the boat tours, so spent a little time looking at the shops. The layout is a little odd - you need to explore a bit before you get to the main section where the shops are. Most shops are, unsurprisingly, geared towards tourists, with a few nice food shops (tea/spice exchange is worth a visit). More shops are being built, so there was a feeling of the place not really being established yet - even though it has been around for many years. I think the layout / style lets it down a bit - it looks dated. I was really looking forward to visiting the place, but was left slightly disappointed.

    A good variety of shops
    Fisherman’s Village is a must see when visiting Punta Gorda. There are a variety of shops and restaurants, including Harpoon Harry’s which is great place to watch the sunset. A great place to visit during the Christmas season. And don’t miss the boat tours!

I booked through my RCI membership. I was told I would get a waterfront room. Technically I did get a waterfront room, but the view was blocked by a thatched roof located directly in front of my room. I will attempt to upload a photo.

We started out with a day planned for some shopping and lunch, but it ended up being much more. There are shops for everyone from teenagers to boat watching for men. Many shopping options for souvenirs. Two of my favorite stores had franchises there: Naples Soap and Spice and Tea exchange. You can take a boat cruise or rent a boat on your own. A few restaurant choices also. Great afternoon for everyone. The only downfall is they close at 6:00 PM

It was the half way meeting spot for New England friends vacationing in Naples Fl and Siesta Key. It was a good choice. Something for everyone, water, boats, beer, food, shopping , plenty of sight seeing, public bathrooms and No admittance fee. Free Parking lot was crowded and folks were parking outside the lot and valets on golf carts were shuttling people to and fro- for tips I suppose.
