We recently spent 5 days at the outrigger and I was very pleased with what I got. We had one of the oceanfront rooms on the top floor which provided some of the best sunsets I had ever witnessed. Our room also had a kitchenette with everything you'd need for cooking a meal. It also seating area where I could watch TV and get a view of the ocean all at once. My biggest recommendation to you would be to pay the extra for the ocean front rom. It was totally worth it.
They also have a restaurant and tiki bar on site. Great atmosphere t the tiki bar and also a cool place to watch sunsets. They always had people who would blow the conch shell as the sun sets which made it extra cool.
The beach is nice and wide with soft white sand. You can rent a chair / umbrella combo, but I thought 20 dollars a day for that was a little high. While the beach is nice, the water left a little to be desired. On the gulf side I was expecting the clear blue green waters I had seen before when in Sarasota and Siesta Key. Not so. Not even close. Water was brown. We spent only one day at the beach with the rest of our afternoons by the clean, but small, pool.
Overall I really liked the Outrigger and would definitely recommend to anyone staying at Fort Mys Beach
