Rest and Relaxation

the hotel is in a perfect spot right by the beach. they have jet-ski and parasailing avainlable in front of the hotel which we tried out. it's a great place to go if you're going as a couple, but i would not recommend it if you take children with you. my only complain was that the wi-fi did not work once we got to the room.

Rock Band

The location of the hotel is perfect. You are right on the beach, the water is about 300ft from the hotel. Huge sliding glass door in the center of the room allows you to hear the wave crash on the beach. However you also hear the rock and roll cover band playing till 2:00 am. Each room has a balcony overlooking Fort Myers Beach. The balcony has cheap plastic furniture with no comfort intended. This is a party hotel. If this is what your looking for this is the place to book. The staff was great when we checked in and out. They did inform us of the nights activities to take place. The hotel does have some amenities which we did not take advantage of during our stay. Its all about the beach, however I would not book at this hotel again.

Hotel is in disrepair, and had no amenities

- The door would not lock unless it was slamed several times. -The lobby offered no coffee. When I asked, I was told to go to the restaurant on the top floor and buy it. - No internet in rooms. It is only assessable in the lobby. - Allows their guest to party in their rooms, and let a band play loud music on the beach patio. This is not a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

subject to reviews

Do to the reviews out there we were pleasantly surprised. The food upstairs overlooking the ocean and outside was great. The shops and small little quaint places to eat were very reasonable in price. Acttivties are for the younger at heart ( live bands all day, activities, and live bands at night on the weekends.
