“Probably the Best Hotel I've Stayed At!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2011

Yes, you read the title correctly, and this is the ONE review you're going to want to read. My stay at this hotel was absolutely phenomenal. I had such an amazing time, and the staff was definitely there to make it a more enjoyable one.

Upon arrival to the hotel, we were greeted by an extremely friendly Valet Operator, he immediately introduced himself to our party, and called in the front desk that our family had arrived. He then escorted us to the front desk, and introduced us to the front desk clerk who then checked us in. Once that was complete, the Valet Operator was done loading up our luggage onto a luggage cart and escorted us to our room. Upon arrival to the room, we were absolutely shocked. The room key reader is not your typical one. You simply "tap" it against the black sensor and the door unlocks.

The hotel is also "LEED Certified" meaning that during the building process and in the majority of the features in the hotel, it is very eco-friendly.

Once you enter your room, you're prompted to insert your room key into a slot. That powers the lighting and air conditioning in the room. If the key is not in the slot, you will not have AC or electrical. It's an excellent way to conserve energy. The AC will not work, either, if you have the balcony doors open. We had a two-bedroom suite, the amount of space in the room was absolutely incredible. The design was gorgeous, the flat screen TV's, the stainless steel appliances, granite and marble countertops were all amazing features that added to the rooms excellent quality.

We found out about their New Years' Eve event, and went. The price was a little steep considering the food served, but it was still an amazing night that I will never forget. The live band that was performing was great, there was an open bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and an incredible fire works show.

The hotel's two restaurants, Marker 92 and The Nauti Mermaid were great as well. Marker 92 has a very business casually loungy feel to it, with an adjoining sports bar. The Nauti Mermaid is the pool/marina outdoor restaurant/bar. The food is amazing, I highly recommend the burger, sweet potato fries, and Chinese BBQ ribs.

The hotel had plenty of amenities. Shops, spa, pool, nature walks, and complimentary bike rentals. We took the bikes and went up and down "Millionaire Row" the amazing mansions in the area, and we went up into the nature trail, that was great, too. The fantastic weather to accompany the bike ride helped, too!

The hotel's staff was simply incomparable to any other resort that I've stayed at. Something that really impressed me was that upon check-out, the valet operator was the same one that checked us in, and he remembered our names... 5 days later!

if you're a social media savvy person, be sure to use it to your advantage! Although they aren't on Twitter, (not sure about Facebook) and you have a Foursquare, be sure to check-in at the hotel's restaurants if you go. You can get special perks, like free appetizers and free drinks. (If you know anything about Foursquare, I'm mayor of the hotel, and both restaurants ;-) )

If you're looking to do some shopping, I highly recommend the Miromar Outlets, they have excellent sales. TIP: Go into the Timberland store, and request the VIP Savings Booklet, where you get additional savings on top of the "outlet store" prices!

The hotel does NOT have wireless internet, however they have wired internet for free. The business center is nothing to shake a stick at, but it gets what you need to do done. The gym is pretty good as well. The pool is rather small, but I hear that as a guest you have access to the Recreational Center adjacent to the resort and there is a better fitness center and pool there.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a weekend, or week getaway. The views are spectacular, and the amenities in the hotel are phenomenal. I will definitely be going back as soon as possible!

Stayed in a 1-BR suite on the 13th floor, for 3 nights. The resort was opened in November 2009 and still feels brand new. Rooms /suites are either facing due East (Studio and 1-BR) or due South (2-BR units), except the 3-BR units, which sit between the two wings, and face South-East. The building's back (= land side) is arcades only ... no rooms there. 'River-' and 'Sanibel-' views, respectively, are hence what is elsewhere called 'high floor', but no difference in room direction. 1-BR suites are much larger /more comfortable = better value than Studios, so don't bother with the latter unless you must have two double beds. Posh is the right word for the interior decoration and furniture. Lots of space. All the trimmings. Large kitchen, state-of-the-art appliances. Spacious loggia with breakfast table and chairs, fully mosquito screened. Glassed-in shower, though with a head not really rainforest-y. Almost-walk-in closets. Perfect beds. The place is extremely quiet, so you enjoy an excellent night's sleep. Beautiful pool and enough space around it. Can't comment on the further facilities, sorry.

The only downside of the property is it's location, if at all. Its not really far away from everything, but feels that way. 10 min. to the shops on CC Pkwy, 16 to those on Del Prado Blvd, 25 min. to the Bell Tower shops in Fort Myers, 35 to Estero Blvd in Fort Myers Beach. Plus each trip back is two bucks bridge toll. But otherwise: just the right place to spoil yourself (and your significant other) rotten.

My wife and I stayed here with two other couple-friends and one single for a friend's wedding, which was held at the resort as well. We lucked out and were upgraded to the corner suite on the 2nd floor which has its own enormous patio-balcony with a view of the resort, marina, ground-floor restaurant, and ocean. Note - this is unlike most of the other rooms in the hotel which feature screened-in balconies (which our room had as well leading out to the open-air patio).

Our simple yet refined suite had two king bedrooms with private bathrooms and walk-in closets, and a third bedroom with two double beds and a full bath off of the hallway, which worked well for the third couple and single in our group. It has a full kitchen, dining room/living room, laundry in the unit...basically a full 3-bed, 3-bath quasi-luxury condo.

The unit also has top-notch modern fixtures, furniture, and finishes. Completely spotless upon arrival, kitchen features its own set of dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, oven, electric stove, and dishwasher. We were able to make our own omlettes, pizzas, and drinks - great way to save money and have a good time.

The resort itself is spacious and well-designed. It has a wonderful upscale restaurant with fresh surf and turf, live music outside in the patio/bar area (the Nauti Mermaid!). The outdoor pool area is medium in size but very nice and semi-private and includes a jacuzzi.

Besides the great view, there is not much else to do in Cape Coral, or at least within the private compound you have to drive through to get to the resort. However, Walgreens, CVS, and Publix grocery store all very nice and within a 10-min drive of the resort. $2 toll to get across the bridge into the Capes from Ft. Myers proper. The beach is about 20 minutes or so south of the resort - it 's nice and all but a little dirty and boats were parked way to close to shore. Everglades are about 1.5 hour drive due southeast from the resort and well worth visiting. Bonita Springs and Naples are also both within driving distance.

All in all, the Marina Village Resort is fantastic - I highly recommend it if you are traveling with a group of people, or even if you are a couple and want to splurge a little. Can't beat the service, sun, and style.

My husband & I celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the Resort week of 10/23/10, and we had a wonderful time.! Everything about the resort is perfect, every detail planned to perfection, including the staff. -they treated us like friends. Restaurant is awesome, rooms are gorgeous, amenities are great. Loved the boat ride to Ft Meyers Beach too.
We want to stay there again as soon as possible!!! Thanks Marina Village for giving us wonderful memories.

I stayed here in mid October for a friend's wedding. The rooms are beautiful... more like condos then hotel rooms. The pool area is nicely done. The staff is friendly and helpful. Great value... I've stayed in resorts for twice as much money that do not have the same amenities as this.

Our beautiful, large 2 bedroom suite overlooked the harbor and the view was nice. The kitchen was well stocked so we could enjoy many meals in our suite, and having a washer/dryer in the suite was great. Many outstanding employees made our stay fantastic. Billy at the front desk was helpful and friendly. Cornell, the bellman, was also very friendly and service oriented. Michael and Patrick in the bar (both inside and outside) were amazing to watch in action! They made everyone feel welcome. Our children loved the fruit smoothies from the bar! One evening, we invited extended family to eat with us in the restaurant onsite. We had 4 adults and 5 children, and Jerry took care of us. He was an absolutely perfect server and the food was amazing. Our children loved the pool at the end of the day. We recommend taking the boat to Fort Myers Beach -- our children liked the boat ride and the beach and town are worth seeing, plus the boat trip is free, and we didn't mind tipping the captain and his helper as they worked hard to make the trip enjoyable!

We loved our stay at the Resort at Marina Village. The facilities are top notch and the service was impeccable. They even fixed our beach umbrella for us. Would definitely return again.
