“Great Views”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had read some of the reviews and became a bit nervous about staying. Only a couple of things keeps me from giving it 5 stars. The rooms are dated, but they are clean and that was what is important. The views are fantastic. Pay the extra money for a room higher up.
You do have to travel a bit to the nice beach. We found the best option was to tke the inexpensive trolly ride to lovers Key Park (Coolers Welcome). Chairs available for rent
Would definately return.
Restaurant had great food and wait service.

Room Tip: Pay the extra money for higher floor

Just finished our family vacation on Ft. Meyers Beach last week at Lovers Key Resort. We had an excellent experience, we got to know the staff at Flippers on the Bay (onsite waterfront restaurant) and called them our extended Flippers Family. The food was great and really unexpected from this smaller facility. The room had an excellent view of the Bay and Mangroves, we saw dolphins playing everyday we were there. I thought the rooms were very nice and clean, they are not the Ritz, but certainly not uncomfortable or distasteful. The resort staff was very helpful with directions and suggestions for local attractions. Can't wait until next year, we will most definitely be back. Thanks to everyone for making our trip special

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors have a really great view of waterway. Ask about fishing charters too, the...

The Sunrise was spectacular (our room faced east). The hotel was clean and modern but rather sterile. From the time we arrived and found the "reception" desk on the second floor there was just something that just felt very impersonal. All the rooms have great water views but you feel rather isolated and there is only a small restaurant (limited menu) on the premises that doesn't accept reservations. Unfortunately we visited during college week and the traffic was bad all week if you had to travel towards Ft. Myers which we did. I guess I need to live and learn about beach getaways during college week.

Room Tip: Upper floors 7 and above have better views. East facing for sunrise and west facing for sunsets.

I booked this resort from an individual owner and ended up being totally satisfied. He had pictures of his unit, but I don't always find these to be true or updated. His unit (203) was directly over the bay and was completely updated. Newly painted, new flat screen TV's, all new furniture, new rugs, mattress .... everything..... it was fantastic. This unit was so clean that it made me feel bad when I had to leave it after staying in it. The resort was also newly redecorated ... all halls painted and new rugs.... its not on the Gulf side, but to me that did not matter. I was totally satisfied with the people that stayed at the resort (very friendly) and the entire place was super clean.

Room Tip: Get room 203 ... you will be totally happy and satisfied.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this resort. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive about the accommodations, but we had a wonderful experience. The girl that checked us in (unfortunately I did not get her name) was very courteous and helpful. She even suggested other restaurants in the area in addition to Flippers next to the hotel. Our room on the 12th floor was very clean and updated. Beautiful views from the balcony and side window. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: Lower numbered rooms face east, higher numbered rooms face west.

This is year 10 or so for me visiting Lover's Key with various family members so clearly we love being here. I echo the last two comments in that upgrades are sorely needed in some units. We stayed in a resort unit the first few days...jacuzzi tub/shower was in need of some mold remediation. On the plus side, one staff member was very accommodating by letting us switch to a luxury room for the same price as our mother could not easily use the jacuzzi tub/shower. However, the room smelled of cigarette smoke (I thought all rooms were nonsmoking), the dishwasher was very rusted inside, and we couldn't for the life of us figure out how to change the toilet paper roll (when we actually HAD toilet paper)! The snarky comments from the dark haired woman at the front desk about having to go downstairs for one silly roll of TP were actually aimed at me (I wonder what she would have said had I asked her for a second roll). I would think that management would spend money first on updating the rooms instead of installing HE washers and dryers and redecorating the common areas...it's the rooms that people are paying for after all..

For the money paid here, the experience is certainly mixed. Some units truly need updating while others are lovely. Lovers Key area is beautiful as always but this place could use a few updates and consistency, including with staff. Such a small thing as having toilet paper in our room for goodness sake, was overlooked. When we called down to the front desk upon arriving back from a day out (on Tuesday, 3-19-13 at 8PM, a dark-haired woman snipily told us to come down and get it. When we went down to the front desk, one roll sat on the front desk and we got more attitude. For this money, anyone should be able to expect more service, and certainly not the bad attitude. That said, some of the staff has been wonderful. It's just not consistent which is really too bad, because Lovers Key area is so beautiful.
