We stayed in Pointe Estero in October of 2003, when renovations were being done, and liked the place, though mice were raiding our kitchens.
We rented three condos that year, and one of our group was given a penthouse to make up for the rodent problem.
In October of 2004, we returned to rent 2 gulf front condos. I called several times after a bad hurricane to check that everyone and everything had survived, and that our reservations were still good. I was told without hesitation that 2 gulf front condos awaited us.
When we arrived, the staff at the front desk gave us one NON gulf front room, without any explanation. I got the feeling that we were expected not to notice the switch. Finally, after some discussion, we were offered a discount on that room.
The other condo was gulf front and lovely.
The pool is lovely.
The beach is lovely.
The room situation was unfortunate and not smoothly dealt with.
