Outrigger Beach Resort
Ranked #13 of 47 Hotels in Fort Myers Beach
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Outrigger is an older resort, but very clean and well-run. It is not a fancy high-end resort but it is still very nice. We got an oceanfront efficiency, which had 2 beds, a livingroom area and a kitchen and balcony with a beautiful beach. They are on the best beach on the island, for that matter, the best beach we've been to. The beach is very wide and the sand is very very soft, white and clean. The Tiki bar is great, right on the beach and you can get any kind of drink and relax by the pool, the deck or the beach. The Deckside Cafe has decent food that is not expensive compared to the other restaurants in the area, and has a very expansive menu. My young son loved that he could get pizza, ice cream cones and their giant chocolate chip cookies there. They also have salads, burgers, etc and a pretty good breakfast buffet. There were mainly families and older folks there, which was great because the atmosphere was a party atmosphere but not annoying or out of control. The staff, especially the cleaning crew, did a great job. Friday they had a wine and cheese party and they have a band by the bar most nights. Every night at sunset they trumpeted the conches, which is a very cool tradition. We loved it and will definitely be back!

Great little place to stay. Smaller buildings with easy access to beach and pool. Kitchen was nice to have in one of the efficiency rooms. Seemed to be older clientele and families staying there. No spring breakers as you have to be age 24 to check in. Far enough away from busy Times Square. Dont try to drive into Times Square for dinner, as it took us an hour to go 4 miles. It was spring break time however. Food was very good at the Deckside restaurant if you ordered off of the menu, but would not recommend dinner buffets.
All staff at resort were very friendly and accomodating. Our family would stay there again if we go back to the area.

I loved this place. We upgraded to a beachfront ground floor room so you walked rite out onto the softest whitest huge beach. Room was very large. Atmosphere here was very laid back and tropical. I would return in a minute.

This is a great resort to stay at if you want somewhere that is down to earth, not full of the super frills of a mega resort. An amazing beach and fun tiki bar! I would definitely recommend the oceanfront rooms with kitchens, perfect for families! Note: if you are tall (over 6ft), make sure you don't stay in the standard rooms, the beds are not very long.

Room Tip: Oceanfront with kitchen!

This is an excellent vacation spot. South of the town square, but close enough to enjoy. The resort had a beautiful beach, great pool, and a nice restaurant on site. The room was small, and we lost power a couple of times but all in all it was very nice. The staff was responsive and helpful. I would like to return!

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms looked like that had a great view, and close to other amenities!

Been going there for 24 years and never get tired of it. Quiet and very relaxing right on the beach. Staff always very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to get back there. Deckside café does excellent meals and if you want something a bit extra special there is Charley's across the street.

Room Tip: Resort view west, nearest the beach so good views

Stayed here for 3 nights during spring break. No vacancies anywhere on Ft Myers. Property is a little dated but doesn't matter -- friendly staff, rocking Tiki Bar, beautiful beachfront location on lovely white sand beach, clean rooms. Didn't really use kitchenette that much but fully equipped with table, range, fridge, microwave. On site restaurant is reasonably priced. Supermarket close by. The room is small and the bathroom is miniscule, but again, great location supercedes it all. Great sunsets.
