“Great beach, even better condo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2006

Just got back from 5 nights at the Gull Wing Beach Resort. We booked a 3 bedroom condo overlooking the beach. My expectations were exceeded. My teenager even smiled upon seeing our condo. The unit was immaculate, well stocked with needed (small sized) items (paper towel, dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, lotion, etc). The rooms were so large and nicely decorated. The view was outstanding. The sand at the beach was so soft and clean, and not too hot. We collected lots of shells and saw a dolphin. The pool was warm, the hot tub was hot. The Publix store down the road did not overprice. Only one restaurant within walking distance that we would go back to ... Charlie's Boat House. Another highlight was going to Everglade City (1 1/2 hours drive) for an exciting air boat ride. Although it cost a lot of money per night, we went home happy, tan and relaxed. Hope to be back.

We stayed at the GullWing in early December, What a great place! The rooms were beyond our expectation. We reserved a two-bedroom gulf front condo. Upon our arrival we were provided a three-bedroom gulf front at no aditional cost! Condo was very large and immaculate. Amenities included a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining area, wet bar and a screened lanai. Master bedroom suite had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gulf, large walk-in closet, huge master bath, and a private door that led to the lanai. Two other bedrooms were at the opposite end of the condo and included a full bath for sharing. The pool was well maintained. Hallways and entrances were consistently maintained throughout the day. Staff were very helpful and courteous. This is located on the quiet end of Ft. Myers Beach which was an added plus to us. Publix and CVS were a two-minute ride in the car. Recommend going to Charlie's for dinner -- great food at a good price! Would return in a nano-second!!!

We had a blast at the gullwing. We payed for the 2 bedroom suite but they upgraded us to a 3 bedroom with no extra charge. The beds were wonderful! We had a good veiw of the bay and the gulf from our private screened balcony. The location was great also. It was a short drive from great dining and shopping. And you can't beat being right on the beach. The water was warm compared to what we are used to in California. Sand dollars were plentiful and we enjoyed the sunsets. We were there when a hurricane passed through the gulf and hit the panhandle but we still had a great time. The eastern thunderstorms were amazing. The pool was warm but nice, a nice hangout for after the beach. The price wasn't bad either. For a place this nice, on the beach, in California, you would pay over $400. We would recommend the Gullwing to ANYONE.

Another great vacation!

Gullwing offers a terrific package of beautiful luxury suites and great service. The only improvement to make this a perfect destination is a slghtly larger pool. We stayed at the beachfront 3 bedroom suite and loved the view! Overall I would highly recommend this destination for those seeking a top end property with a beatiful beach.

We just returned home from a week at Gullwing Beach Resort and are ready to return again!! The suite was beautiful as well as spacious and comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer in the suite was a must. The view was amazing and staff was friendly. I highly recommed bringing friends or family to enjoy with you. There is plenty of room. We will definately be returning to Gullwing. Thanks for wonderful memories.

This was our 2nd visit to GullWing for a long weekend. As before, it did not disappoint us. We had a 2 bedroom beachfront unit. 8th floor. Perfect views of the Gulf and Sanibel Island off in the distance. Weather was perfect all weekend. Lots of families gather here for vacations/family reunions and quick get-aways. There was even a wedding there this weekend right on the beach.

Everything you need is right in the unit, including the washer/dryer. There are also bbq's in the pool area for your use, if you wish to use them. Many did. Did not have much interaction with the staff, except to request a late check-out on Monday, which was granted. Our unit was huge -- the kids were walking around saying, "Mom, where are you?"!! A quick shopping trip to Publix and you are all set. Will definately return.

We just returned from a lovely weekend at the Gullwing. We actually got married right there at the end of the boardwalk. I can't say enough about the wonderful suites and service at the Gullwing. The suites provide everything you could ever need in the kitchen, so all you'll need to do is stop off at the Publix to stock up on food and beverages. Laundry facilities are in your suite for those sandy beach clothes. The beach itself is beautiful... very wide with plenty of space for long walks.

Jill Weber, the Gullwing's manager, pulled out all of the stops for us, ensuring that our wedding weekend went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend the Gullwing to anyone... for weddings or just for a week on the coast with the family. We'll certainly be back for anniversaries in the future!
