We stayed at LKR in suite 12XX. This floor was near the top of the building – only the penthouse floor was above us. Our view was to the west and we had sun most of the day. The view was absolutely fabulous!! We could see the south end of Estero Island (aka Ft Myers Beach) and the Key stretching to Ft Myers and the Gulf.
The resort is a top-notch, upscale vacation destination. LKR is operated as a hotel/condo rental. We leased our one bedroom suite from Distinctive Beach Rentals and would recommend you do the same. Attentive to details with lots of differing properties to choose from, they are customer orientated and a treat to do business with.
The resort has a huge pool and a nearby hot tub/spa. Lots of decking and deckchairs along with a rock fountain make for a pleasant sun experience. The resort is on the inland, key-side and doesn’t have much of a beach especially at high tide. But no matter because Lovers Key State Park is right across the road with miles of white sand beaches for walking, fishing, sunning, swimming and boating.
Also attached to LKR is Flippers Restaurant and Bar, a nice seafood-orientated eatery that is outdoors on a covered deck. Food was good and service was commendable. Expect to pay resort menu prices with most grouper entrees at market price. Can’t beat the view if waterfront dining is your desire.
Our suite was a one-bedroom, one-bath unit. The living/dining/kitchen area was combined into one. LARGE door walls opened onto a full-span balcony. The bedroom also had a full span door wall, and sported a king-size bed. The bath had a large combo whirlpool tub and shower that could easily accommodate a small crowd. Décor was tropical and the kitchen was well-stocked, albeit a bit small. Furnishings were up-to-date with no signs of wear and may have even been new.
LKR is a great choice for a Florida vacation. Close to Ft. Myers and Naples, there are tons of places to visit and sight-see. The condos are very comfortable and provide good value along with excellent location! Location! Location!
