“Perfect!”
Reviewed April 16, 2005

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Gullwing and have nothing but positive things to say. They upgraded our room upon arrival - much nicer than anticipated, and very very spacious. It had all the amenities of home, even better. Hotel employees were super friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel on the beach is simply the best - on the quiet end of the strip, has the best beachfront of all, and has fancy cabanas to rent (only a few others had this option). Pool was nice but a kid hang out. We took side trips to Marco and everglades, but couldn't wait to get back to Ft. Myers Beach and our Gullwing! Quiet, clean, beautiful, spacious....I would have been disappointed had I stayed anywhere else. My only complaint is traffic (take the trolley but not at 5:30 - 6:30 - way too busy).

We just returned from a 5-night stay at Gullwing Resort. We were surprised how big the accommodations were (3 bedrooms). There was plenty of room for our three children. Our twin toddlers shared one bedroom while our daughter took the second. The room she stayed in would not have fit comfortably two cribs but the room the boys stayed in was plenty big enough for both cribs. The master bedroom and bathroom are awesome. The kitchen was plenty big and having a washer and dryer was a big plus. Overall, the space was very comfortable for all of us and we ate almost every meal in our condo. There were some negatives. The elevators were pretty slow, probably given that it was a very busy week. When we first arrived the pool was pretty chilly but (we heard that after a lot of people complained) they turned up the heat and it was much better. Very convenient to the beach. The one thing that I don't agree with is that the resort uses "complimentary" a lot but then says "for a nominal fee," which seems contradictory. Like, for instance, we did not realize that the DVD's available at the front desk came with a $5 charge. We never received the two highchairs we were promised and we did have to pay to rent cribs (I have never had to do that at a resort before.) And the DVD player broke the second day. Originally we were told there was nothing that could be done but after talking to the front desk, a second maintenance man took a DVD player from another condo unit and installed it in our unit. We like this part of the island better than the northern part though traveling on the island at this time of year is VERY SLOW.

We booked this hotel/condo only a week before our visit and were absolutely delighted with the accommodations, amenities and location. It is one of the best places (not fanciest) we have ever stayed. The condo was superb, facilities terrific and location in Fort Myers Beach superb. The staff was excellent, too. We would strongly recommend this resort to anyone, and especially to families. Our trip took place during the busy February school vacation, but this location and the resort were very uncrowded and pleasant.
