“Not worth the price”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Dirty rooms, everything was falling apart (shower curtain, doors, shelves in kitchen). If you want to sit at the pool, be prepared to put towels on chairs at 6AM to save chairs or you will not get a chair. They do not do anything about this practice, they allow guests to do this. Even though chairs are saved, people are not there sitting i nthe chairs, they are at the beach.

WOW! We had an amazing stay at the Pink Shell...The staff were wonderful, the accommadations were Great, especially with the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the AWESOME beach!

The free chairs on the beach were a nice touch, dolphins would swim right next to you it was breathtaking. However, the pool was just as nice and warm it was nice to hang out at as well.

The complimentary breakfast was more than we thought it was going to be...they don't miss a beat, and the omelette guy makes a mean omelette.

The sunsets were beautiful every night that we were there. And every morning we would walk to the beautiful Bowdwitch Park and watch dolphins and birds. Time square was fun but more for the younger spring break crowd.

If you are looking for a great place to go for the family this is it they don't miss anything, they have activities for the kids and if you need anything its there. There is no reason to really ever leave. Wish we wouldn't have rented a car.

...Our Minnesota winter will be back...so we know where we will be going when we are ready for a break from winter.

Room Tip: White Sands Building 3rd Floor or higher... the view is breathtaking!

We had a wonderful family vacation at this resort. The beach was beautiful, clean and uncrowded. We walked back from the pier at night and we felt totally safe. The hotel was clean, the rooms were wonderful, roomy and very comfortable. My daughter loved the pool. The staff was very friendly and very helpful.

The pool was really warm (approx 85 degrees) which made swimming really enjoyable. The food at the resort was excellent. We ate and drank mainly at happy hour when all is half price. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Our room was very spacious and clean with a gorgeous view of the ocean. I haven't got one complaint about the resort!

The only thing to be prepared for is the bridge over to Fort Myers Beach. We were really excited to get there and then it took us over an hour to get over that darn bridge. We planned our days so that we didn't have to cross that bridge at the busy times.

Room Tip: We had a room in the White Sand Villas which couldn't have been better. The view, the room, it w...

Took my fiance for a surprise trip to the beach (we live in neighboring Fort Myers) over the Thanksgiving wknd. We had planned to arrive earlier than check in, park our car and spend the day on the beach until we could check in in the afternoon. To my delight the reservationist told me that we could begin using the resort prior to check in which was really a nice perk. When we did arrive that day, the room was ready and they allowed us to check in at around 10am!

The property is at the quiet end of the beach but still within walking (or trolley) distance to all the nightlife, touristy stuff etc. There is a spa on site, multiple pools, a bar and a restaurant. The room was ok, clean and sufficient with enough room, but could use some updating.

Overall, a great location and would be perfect for families as well as singles, couples etc. Really something for everyone.

Stayed 3 nights for a girlfriends get away. Beautiful property excellent service. Very nice pool area. Bartender Nick was great. rooms were spacious and very clean. could use some towel bars in dressing area outside bathroom. Had a beautiful view of beach from our room.Breakfast buffet was wonderful. Omelets and waffles were delicious. Just wish weather was little warmer but can't have everything. Would love to go back. Also liked having wristbands instead of traditional cards for doors.. No worries about losing card or forgetting in room when going out.

Room Tip: Rooms in main building better suited for families with small children where pool area is located. R...
