“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The building and grounds were kept very clean, however, what bothered us were the very tiny ants that were continuously on the kitchen counters. We'd kill them all, and a couple hours later, they were back! Also, the beds were terrible - very soft. The front desk told my wife that they were replacing them, beginning with the upper floors. There is no daily housekeeping service.

The beach was beautiful, but there's a lot of sand between the hotel and the gulf (a 10 min. walk w/little kids). The pool was very nice too. We were there during a cold spell, but the pool was pretty warm, and the hot tub was great.

We struggled to find nearby family-friendly places to eat. We found that you really have to drive off the island to find these, and that drive, depending on traffic, can be 15-20 min.

Our family has stayed at Pointe Estero 2x and plan on being back at least 2x/year moving forward. This is an extremely pleasant condo/resort. The condo's are spacious with beautiful views, on the beach, and are fully equiped with a full kitchen, laundry, 2 BR, 2 B, dining room, living room...it truly has all the amenties one could wish for while on vacation. One thing we like is that there is no "automatic" maid service which can interupt the day; if you want it, you pay for it. Jamie, at the front desk, is so pleasant and accomodating and is another reason we shall return. The very reasonable tram will take you anywhere you want to go up and down Estero Blvd. We've also found the other vactioners that stay here to be very friendly which is sometimes a gamble at chain resorts.

Room Tip: Get to the pool early as there is no "reserving of chairs" (good thing) and enjoy!

We were upgarded to the penthouse, which was very comfortable and had plenty of room. It would have been a great spot for a party - the loft opens up to the rooftop deck, which is huge. Very roomy and very comfortable. Condo was clean although getting a little bit dated in the decor.

For my daughter's wedding in Fort Myers, we decided to stay at the beach (her wedding was downtown at the historic Burroughs Home) and encouraged family and friends to stay near our hotel so we could host pre- and post-wedding festivities. A condo hotel seemed like a good idea so we could have full kitchen and living space access without having to rent a "party room."

When we checked into the Pointe Estero Beach Resort (PEBR) we didn't exactly have high hopes for a pleasant stay. The young man at the front desk couldn't get rid of us fast enough, and we were given a room on the first floor, which was fine - until we got to the room. The lanai was totally unusable - it was surrounded by EVERY air conditioning unit for the complex! And with temps in the 80's, the noise level was off the chart! We tried to host an evening get-together but ended up needing to move to one of our relative's room instead to avoid the constant drone of the AC units.

The next morning, I went to the front desk to complain and ask for another room. A lovely young woman was at the front desk (desk hours at this hotel are from 8 am - 10 pm, so you're out of luck if you need someone on the overnight shift). At first, she said they were 100% full, but when I told her why I wanted a different room she said she'd check with the manager and get back to me. Two hours later, no call from the desk, so I went down to check and they were moving us to the 8th floor, but exact same location. When we checked the room out, we could still hear the AC units, but it was much quieter and we could entertain our guests comfortably in the evening.

My elderly in-laws shared this 2-BR corner unit condo with us and there was plenty of room. The rooms are nice - no super fancy, but nice and clean. The bathrooms are a tad funky - there is a HUGE oval bathtub in the master BR and it's a climb to get into the tub to shower in the morning. But it was fine. LOVED the double sinks in the master, and the in-room washer and dryer were super convenient. Nice kitchen - full size (BIG) refrigerator and full size stove (didn't use the stove). All dishes were present and clean. Cabinets were clean as well.

I would rate this more of a 3.5 - 4; our check in experience wasn't great, but staff was wonderful after that. No restaurants on site, but quite a few within walking distance. The beaches are gorgeous and super clean. Nice pool and plenty of chairs to accommodate everyone. Hottub never got "hot" so we avoided that. And other than the check in guy, I highly recommend the hotel staff. I would probably stay here again when I need a 2 or 3 BR place, but will request a gulf-front upgrade room rather than the corner unit (some family members had the upgraded unit). We got a good deal through Delta Vacations and overall this was a positive experience.

I tend to be a somewhat picky traveler and the hotel is VERY important to my stay. If I don't like the hotel, it's hard for me to relax since the hotel is my "home" away from home when I'm traveling. It's not the Wynn or the Four Seasons, but it was a nice place and overall this was a good experience.

Room Tip: If you want maid service, it's extra per day. Also, get a gulf-view room; layout is much nicer...

This is our first time here at this resort which we found via Traveladvisor's Sniqueaway website. Our unit is a 2 bedroom beach front view unit.

The room layout was great where the two bedrooms were on opposite ends of the unit, master bedroom having a huge whirlpool tub with shower. Kitchen stocked with modern fridge, range, dishwasher and all the essentials, full size glass dining room table, and the gorgeous patio that went all around the perimeter of the unit. The sliding doors out to the patio was solid keeping any outside noise outside and quiet inside once closed. Washer and drier was plus for doing the towels. There was fresh coffee available downstairs near the elevator in the morning for guest and loved the convenience of shopping carts to carry the groceries up from the car to your room. Internet connection is available through a dedicated outlet in the wall. Resort staffs were friendly from check in to check out.

The beach here has very fine sand which i love and is also the widest beach from the water line to the hotel. I found the water to be a bit nippy but laying out under the sun quickly warmed me up. The sunset views are just gorgeous. Location is also great since the popular pier area is just down the road with many shops and eateries. Then Sanibel island popular for fishing, shelling, and birding is just north from Ft Myers beach.

We stayed here two nights but wished we could have stayed few more. There is always next time!!

Room Tip: If you want a good view of the beach, then go for the beach front view units 3rd floor and above.

I just returned from spending two weeks in this property with three friends. The rooms were spacious and exceptionally clean. We had requested "oceanfront" and were not disappointed. We had fantastic views from every room and balcony. We were on the 7th floor and enjoyed refreshing ocean breezes every day. It was great having a full kitchen and a washer and drier. We ate breakfast and lunch in our room each day and went out to a different restaurant each night for dinner.
The beach is amazing; we enjoyed walking there early each morning. My friends raved about the pool cleanliness and temperature.
I can't say enough positive things about the staff. They were always friendly and always tried to help in every possible way. They have obviously been well trained in customer service.
I have only positive comments about this fabulous condo. I can't wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: Oceanfront is worth the price.

This s one of the nicest places I've ever stayed at.Went there a week ago during the slower tie of year so it was very affordable for what you get. It is basicly a self contained 2 bedroom apt. I requested a higher floor and thet put me up to the 15th level with a great view of the beach. The balcony had 4 sliding glass doors as the entraces and was very spacious as well as the rooms itself. The furniture and rooms all were very modern and the resort itself was directly next to the beach.All the staff at the place were very helpful with any question or need I had.Just cant say enough good things about the place and will definatly be back!!
