“Definitely a three star hotel”
Reviewed August 4, 2008

The DiamondHead Beach Resort is a nice, three-star hotel. The rooms are nothing fancy, but are fine for a short stay. They do have a great screened-in balcony with plenty of furniture. The small kitchenette was useful for the fridge. There are ice machines on every other floor, so we didn't have one on our floor and the one above us was broken. We stayed in a handicapped room, but I am unsure of how someone in a wheelchair would have navigated the bathroom/bedroom very well as it was a bit cramped. The bathroom was nothing fancy, but there was plenty of hot water with Bath and Body Works toiletries. The housekeeping staff was very friendly, but we had to ask them to change the sheets. Also, when we requested an internet cord because the wireless was not working, they made us go to the front desk to pick it up. Also, it appears as if you are able to check out on the TV, but the woman at the front desk says this is "only a tease" and you can't really check out there. The pool was very nice and they do provide towels. Great access to the beach from just ouside the bar. The food and drinks at the bar were very good, but they were a little pricey. They only asked me once if we wanted to see the new suites they had at the vacation club, and when I declined, they did not try to push further, which was very nice. The bell staff was very friedly and helpful, but when we spoke to some people at the front desk for directions to things outside of Ft Myers they weren't as willing to provide directions, and they wanted us to do alternative things closer to the hotel.

  • Liked — The pool and the location, as almost everything in Ft Myers is within walking distance.
  • Disliked — The room was nice, but it seemes as though it could be updated or kept up a bit better. It appeared worn.

We just returned from a week at Diamond Head. The hotel is terrific and the service was incredible - from the bell staff to the front desk to the wait staff and cleaning crew - all were friendly, accomodating and made me feel that I really mattered to them. We took advantage of almost every offering, including the water sports, which were great! The pool atmosphere is relaxing yet fun, and the food at both Cabana's and Chloe's was very good - I was surprised, in fact, at how good it was - you don't often find that in hotel restaurants. Because every room is a suite, it made staying here for a week feel like home. Having traveled extensively for business and pleasure, I am very picky when it comes to hotels, but Diamond Head exceeded my expectations . I would HIGHLY recommend, and plan to return soon (I hope!!)

We arrived to Ft Myers Beach after staying in a very small room at Disney with my wife and 2 kids. We were very happy to find the roomy suite waiting for us with a great view. We took advantage of the pool as did a lot of other people at the resort. The only complaint we had was that housekeeping did not clean our room. It was a mix up as our 17 yr old son did not move the "Do Not Disturb" sign in time like he should of while we were at the pool. I had to go ask for towels which were brought to the room quickly. We definitely will return and for a longer period of time.

My wife and I stayed at the Diamond Head resort June 14-21. We were both extremely pleased with the entire experience. The rooms are spacious and clean. The kitchenette is really handy. I fell asleep on the screened-in patio 4 nights just listening to the small waves on the beach.
The hotel is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. I would guess about 1/2 mile to the pier.
We can't wait to go back!!!

stayed at daimond head ft. myers68-6-12-2008. read many reviews first. Let me tell you the rooms are very nice not 5star but very comfortable. the balconies are in living area and bedroom. you can lay in bed and see the ocean. the hotel and restaurant staff are Very nice. the beach and the water are very clean. you can go way out into the water . no waves. the main restaurant very expensive. the trolley can take you up and down main road. If you want to sight see you either need a car or make arrangements throuth the concerge. If you want to relax lay on the beach and have a good meal it is the place to be.

  • Liked — very comfortable and plenty of room
  • Disliked — prices at the reataurant

My fiancee and I came to Florida to plan our destination wedding. We stayed at another hotel to try and get some other options. On our arrivial to a different hotel, we were horrified. We immediately contacted the DiamondHead to see if there were any rooms available. The staff there at the DiamondHead bent over backwards to make sure that our stay was incredible. They were all friendly and even took the time to learn our names. We originally were planning on a different hotel after the first night, however we decided to stay the entire vacation. By the time we left, most everyone at the resort knew our name. They made our vacation/wedding planning/and my fiancee's birthday the best trip it could have been. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Here for 5 nights for our first ever sister getaway. Staff very friendly and helpful - early checkin allowed. Our corner room on the 9th floor was oceanfront - awesome views. Good food in hotel. Only drawback was sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Excellent restaurant recommendations! Will be back. Resort employees very appreciative of our patronage.
