Reviewed September 19, 2013

Room 164 right by the pool and steps to the sand. Sep 7-11. Two adults and a two year old. Room has a kitchenette, refrigerator, microwave and two small beds. Beds aren't the most ideal with a child. Or for a couple for that matter but we got by. Spacious enough room though. Property is kept clean through the day by grounds crew.

The Tiki Bar located on property by the pool is nice with music 5-8 during the week and 2-5 on weekends. A little more reggae or type of music would have been nice but it was fun still for sure and the musicians were nice and entertaining. Phil, Jim & Patty at the Tiki were super friendly and did a great job even when they got a little busy. Hi Guys! Thanks for a good time. Only downside which I don't understand is whoever is doing the ordering needs to get some Captain Morgan in for goodness sake! You have a Captain sign up at your bar and no Captain?? So, F&B Don't penny pinch on items guests ask for please.

There's a little bit of a walk to get to the water but its not that far. The water is warm and inviting. You can rent a cabana but bringing your own chair you can sit at waters edge. Grab a few towels from the nice people running the guest services shop right at sands edge.

There is a little cafe on premise which works for a bite but you'll probably want to head out for a dining experience. They are nice and helpful there though and you can order something and have it brought to you while you relax on the nice expansive deck with ample seating.

Always expect some rain but it passes.

If we get a chance to get back to Fort Myers Beach we would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Room 164 is a bottom floor right by the pool and close to the sand. And no direct sunlight in the m...

Overall, we had a wonderful time at the Outrigger. In summary: This Resort has everything that you would want at a larger more expensive resort but its for people on a budget. It wasn't the Hilton but allowed us all of the wanted and needed accommodations without breaking the bank. The Details: The room was clean and comfortable. The ladies at the front desk were as sweet as can be. The café has great food at a reasonable price (not like those big name resorts where everything is outrageous) Coupons were offered at the front desk for cabana rental, the café, and sangria. We rented cabanas which were very nice and reasonably priced. The beach is very wide at this point on Fort Myers Beach which important to know. We liked it. Towels were offered for pool and beach. Bar drinks were reasonable as well. And we didn't get dirty looks when we ordered Miami Vices all day (Happens a lot to us). The pool was the only disappointing part. Very small. On Saturday the pool was at full capacity and we just basically jumped in to cool off and then got out. Sunday there were fewer people. And live music. We really enjoyed Sunday by the pool. We stayed far beyond check out as well. We would definitely stay here again. The only thing that disturbed me about this hotel was that the staff was using plastic storage containers to catch the A/C drainage. In the morning I saw a staff member dumping these over the side of the balcony... right where people were walking. He didn't even look over the side to see if anyone was under. A woman walking in front of us almost got soaked.

Room Tip: We had a basic room and was spacious for 3 people. We even had many guests in our room and did not f...

We stayed at the Outrigger and we loved it! Service was excellent, room and bathroom were clean. The beach was clean and we loved the white sand and the fact that the beach was not crowded. As far as the music it was good but should have more variety and not just country music, there were Latin and European guests that would have liked to hear other type of music.

We stayed at the Outrigger Hotel last December and we're going back again this year! We had a beachfront room with the best view of the sunset I have ever seen, before or since. The Tiki Bar was a lot of fun as well! Some reviews warned us about staying beachfront because of the noise, but the bar closes at 10 pm and was not a problem at all. The pool was very nice and the beach is huge.
I saw all of the room types because we go married while we were there and I have to say they were all pretty nice. The back bungalows had a whole different feel from the beach view rooms- the were very cute!!
We ate quite a bit at the on property cafe. It has pretty good food! The prices are about what you would expect for convenience.
Our wedding was fantastic- minus a few problems we had with the wedding planner, but no one but us knew and everyone else had a great time!!
All in all, the Outrigger was a great place to stay!!

We stayed at The Outrigger for the 4th time this year. It's always a pleasure. Everytime we stayed we had a ground floor beach front efficiency which is very convenient for the three of us (couple with 8 year old boy). It's a pleasure when you wake up in the morning and immediatly see the beautiful beach and ocean. We thought this year the ocean wasn't as clear as it were and there were less shells. But we did see dolphins and all those fantastic birds. Staf is very friendly. Room was clean. We used the kitchen every day. It's small but oke and very handy when your traveling with a kid.
The sunsets are stunning every night :D

Room Tip: The beach front efficiencies really add a lot to your vacation fun!

I have stayed at The Outrigger 4 separate times and will go back again, we reserve an efficiency and it has all we need. Really, the only thing they could improve on is somewhere to hang wet towels. The first time we stayed here we had an ocean front efficiency on the 3rd floor, and it was wonderful. Rooms were clean, housekeeping was daily and great, we asked once for extra towels and wash cloths and from then on had more than enough each day. The burgers from their restaurant are really very good, especially sitting out on the deck under the thatched roof/umbrellas. Breakfast buffet was so-so, but all in all, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: The efficiency's are worth the reasonable cost, we had 2 adults and a child in one of the units...
