“Girls Getaway”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This was my first trip to Pink Shell but won't be my last. I plan on returning! We stayed in the Captiva building and everything from the service to the view was excellent! We were able to take advantage of everything: the pools, restaurants, beautiful beach and water sports. Every employee we encountered was so pleasant and helpful. We really felt like they went out of their way. I highly recommend the Pink Shell.

Exceeded our expectations in every way. Outstanding staff, very attentive, responsive and knowledgable. Bongos at poolside is a cant miss for a tasty lunch or mid day snack. Our room in the Captiva Bldg was perfect; spacious, spotlessly clean and the bath, shower and jacuzzi were superb, and fun! We will return and give the Pink Shell our highest recommendation.

This was our 8th time to stay at the Pink Shell. It is a beautiful resort with awesome views of the gulf. We stayed in the White sands building. The rooms are spacious and have great views of the ocean and and even better views of the sunset!! There are 3 pools - the Ocotopool at the main building has a great resturant - Bongo's to have lunch or dinner or just drinks. The staff also takes drink orders poolside and brings them right to you! There are family movie night too right at the pool. They also have beach towel available for your use. The beach is also a great place to spend the day. there are chairs set up so you can just enjoy the ocean. There is also Bowditch park right beside the resort that is a great place to warch boats coming in and out of the bay. We ate breakfast at Jack's every morning in the Captiva building. they have a great breakfast buffet - lots of choices! There is also room service or you can reserve a sunset dinner on the beach. The staff is excellent. Everyone is very nice and friendly. Great valet service at the main building. Derek and Shawn were wonderful! There is really no reason to leave the resort - everything is right there but Time Square is just a short walk away with lots of shopping, resturants and entertainment. This is the only place we would stay in Fort Myers Beach. We never have to worry about anything - it is always perfect everytime!

Room Tip: all the rooms have great views. The Sanibel view rooms are good for couples and rent for less. We...

We had another wonderful getaway to the resort. We loved that the full breakfast was included with our stay. The pool outside of the Sanibel building is ideal for peace and quiet still! Loved seeing the same bell captain! The staff at the PSBR are very polite, helpful, and pleasant. Bravo!

One issue that seemed to really stand out was that the furniture is getting tired in the Captiva Villa Building where we have stayed twice in the deluxe suite. When one pays for luxury it is anticipated to be readily available. Definitely attend to the couches being reupholstered, cushions on chairs and lounge chairs, and the window treatments. The stains were unappealing.

Overall, a great stay and superb location!

Room Tip: Captiva building deluxe suite!

This was our second and for sure not our last vacation at the Pink Shell Resort. Our accommodations and staff, from the front desk to the cleaning service were most helpful and always friendly. The view of the white sandy beach, the boats and dolphin watching from your suite is outstanding. The pools are so clean and warm after an afternoon of sunbathing. You can start your day off with a wonderful breakfast at Jacks and end your day at the poolside bar.

Room Tip: Our suites have always been above the pool area and we have enjoyed watching the action around the p...

We spent five nights here and had a wonderful time. The location was perfect and the staff were amazing. The room was spacious and could have not been nicer. We went parasailing and rented jet skis. We especially enjoyed the two men we worked with there, Jake and Alex were most accommodating as were the two guys on the boat when we parasailed. We enjoyed everything about the Pink Shell.

We stayed at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina this past weekend (3 nights). We had an end unit in the Captiva Villa building on the 6th floor. It was, in one word, awesome. Our accommodations couldn't have been better. The view was to die for. We had two balconies, one that had a hot tub which we used every night.
The beach was beautiful and extremely well maintained. There were lots of water sports to rent but we just relaxed in our chairs and watched all the boats, para sailors, jet skis, pelicans, ospreys, etc. entertain. It wasn't crowded on the beach, as it is further down near the pier. The pier and "Times Square" area with lots of restaurants and shops is a nice 3/4 mile walk from the resort. There is also a trolly if one chooses not to walk.
The staff was very friendly and professional. Shout out to Chad, our server at Bongo's. He's a nice, hard working guy who really knows how to show hospitality to the guests. Our buffet breakfast was included in our package and the food selection was great.
I would highly recommend this resort. Our only drawback, if we had to give one, is the bridge leading to the resort is always very backed up with traffic. Because of this, we chose to stay either at the resort or in the Times Square area. But if our stay was longer, we'd have to venture off the island and deal with heavy traffic.

Room Tip: Loved the end rooms in Captiva Villas. Request a high floor.
