GREAT PLACE FOR SUN, FUN AND DRINKS

I have been coming to Lani Kai for 9 years. They have always been attentive to my requests. The rooms are average but the view from the balcony is awesome both day and night. You have many resturants and bars with in walking distance. LeeTran to take you places and a nice beach to shell.

You get what you pay for.

The hotel is right on the beach which is it's best quality. The hotel itself is badly outdated and needs to be renovated. The elevators were unpredictable at best and at least one time someone got stuck in them. The restaurant on the roof had good food and drink deals and a spectacular view. The nightclub was fun. There was usually something going on all night every night but it didn't prevent me from being able to sleep. The hotel is kept clean and the staff were very friendly. Wifi was spotty and was only consistent in the hotel lobby.

Perfect!!!!

Very nice, no complaints. Could be a bit cleaner but what can you expect!? It's not the Hilton.

I like this place but I know what to expect...

...it's the only hotel ON THE BEACH with any type of social activity. Rooms are tile, they are adequate, but the view is great, staff is great and again roof dining/activities, downstairs out doors bar with band, etc... is why you stay here. OR, why you DON'T stay here if you're looking for quiet solitude.

every room faces the beach

If you dont mind the rundown condition circa late 1970s early 1980s this place is awesome for the price. 400 feet of beach, bars and restaurants, lunch spots within, 7 11 across the street, and another 15 bars and restaurants within walking distance. Ive heard its rowdy during spring break, so come other times especially offseason to get a great price.

Been going there for the past 6 years.

The first night there the room next door kept me up until 4am. When I asked to be moved they upgrade me to a suite which was awsome. Great view of the Gulf. Will stay there again next year.

family friendly

The Lani Kai was very comfortable. Reception was very friendly and courteous. I enjoyed many meals in their dining room; the food was excellent and the service was great. The beachfront was beautiful. There were alot of restaurants in the area and many gift shops. I would recommend vacationing at Ft. Meyers Beach. Lots of fun for the entire family
