We had a great time, every one was so nice the room was very clean. The beach was great. The food was outstanding. I really can not say a bad thing about our stay. The after noon music on the beach was very good. We had our lunch on the beach.

Directly on the beach. Check-in was quick and easy on first floor. Little Starbucks in the hotel. Plenty of bars and restaurants in and around the hotel. Rooms were spacious with separate bedroom living area and small kitchen. Everything a little older but clean. The rooftop bar

Thank you for your review! The roof top bar @ our Sun Deck is great place to view the entire Island of Ft.Myers Beach. I really appreciate you pointing out about the Resort is older but clean. Our Resort was build 40 years ago, and the establishment has upgraded the inside rooms but has maintained its original appearance to keep the feel nostalgic! We would love to have you back as our guest. We assure you, nothing has changed. Same look, same great food, same great place!
