“Mini Staycation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We are fairly new to the Fort Myers area so this was our first time staying on the beach. What a great hotel! The location is perfect. All of the rooms were one bedroom suites with a mini kitchen. The refrigerator is not full size but big enough to stock with drinks and use for leftovers and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils. The lanai was enormous and had a great view of the beach as well as the pool. Since this resort does not allow anyone under the age of 25 to rent a room, if you decide to go over Spring Break, you will not have to worry about a bunch of drunk college kids swarming the hotel. The staff was fantastic. The front desk agent that checked us in was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Janet, our server at Cabanas was incredible! She took great care of us. Wendy, at the pool was very friendly as well. The server at the pool whose name I cannot remember (Matt?) was also on top of things and very nice. The next time we need another staycation we will definitely come back.

We stayed at diamondhead for 5 nights and are already counting down the days until we can go back next year! From the time we checked in the entire staff was welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a great size and we were able to save money on breakfast by utilizing the kitchenette in the room. The oversized balcony was also a huge plus and the view was outstanding. Ask for a higher floor, the view is worth is!! We spent a lot of time at Cabanas for lunch and happy hour, it felt very tropical and had an awesome ocean breeze. We really had no reason to leave the hotel for happy hour, it would be nice if the bar was open later though! Make sure to look for Randy at the bar, by the first day he already had our drink orders memorized and was a ton of fun! The hotel is in easy walking distance to everything but is also far enough away from all the hustle and bustle so it is still pretty quiet. I will definitely be returning here soon and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: The higher floors have an awesome view!

This was an awesome hotel. We arrived on Friday after noon (8/1) and was greeted by a very nice bell man. I didn't catch his name, but he is a tall blonde gentleman which was very pleasant and welcoming. he took my bags to my room and helped me unload my vehicle since we were traveling with a 3 month old.

Check in was on the 2nd floor. Very cute front desk. Felt very warm and welcoming. the front desk reps were very professional and kind. They got us in very quickly and gave me a free upgrade to a premium room for my bday! 10th floor beachfront. room 1008. AMAZING VIEW OF THE OCEAN. This was a club level room. The rooms were very clean and modern. Big balcony and all the furniture was up to date too.

We got to witness 2 weddings on the beach that weekend. It was a beautiful view. I would definitely return. The staff was friendly, the drinks at the bar were strong (and fairly priced) and the ocean was very nice.

Room Tip: Go club level all the way!!!!!!!! Great views!

The Diamondhead resort is very centrally located, right on the beach and close to several restaurants. The rooms are very large, with a large bedroom with a King Bed, an upgraded kitchen with a small fridge, microwave, electric stove and dishwasher. There is a living room área with a sofá bed, ample space still available once sofabed is extended. There is also a large balcony that extended over the living room and bedroom sliding doors. The pool is somewhat small but it is very comfortable as is the restaurant which is located next to the pool and with beach Access and view. Parking is also very convenient,
Overall the Diamondhead resort is a nice place to spend some time at the beach.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a nice ocean view, some also overlook the pool. There are some recently upgraded ro...

the hotel is on a beautiful beach. the pool was very nice and the service was great. i told the front desk i did not want room service for all week because they are trying to save water. they appreciated it very much. i was alone and i told them i would keep the room clean.i was next to the big exaust pipes and they made noise but overall it was a great room.

Room Tip: if you dont like noise keep away from the exaust fan of the restaurant.

Great staff, beautiful accommodations. We had a great time at Diamond Head. Everyone was friendly and the room was immaculate. Just know, they are trying to sell those time shares, but an hour of our time scored us $150. I do wish the Beach cabana stayed open a later

Very nice Gulf-Front hotel! One of the largest buildings in the area. Rooms and service were very good. Staff was fast and helpful. Screened in balconies made it possible to enjoy the waves at night! The in-room kitchenette had all the basics covered so you can save money preparing basic in-room breakfast and lunch. Not huge but the salt water pool was refreshing with a maximum number of sun lounger chairs. Free use of bicycles was a nice plus. I can't say anything bad about our stay! Plenty of available beach activities, restaurants, nightlife and shopping nearby.
If I had to nit pic; hallways are covered but are not air conditioned and are exposed to outside humidity. Elevators are slow. The outside bar closes early during the week. If back in the area I would consider staying again. Over all We were very happy with the hotel!

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are gulf VIEW. We stayed in a gulf FRONT room. There are 3 gulf front rooms on e...

Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to give us your nice review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your room with its screened in balcony, there's nothing like leaving the door open so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Thank you again for staying with us and we do hope to see you back in the future.
