Sandpiper Gulf Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is on the beach with the Publix grocery store and Charlies Boat house restaurant within a few minutes drive. Chairs and umbrellas, jetskis can be rented right from the hotel beach,plus any other water activity like para sailing, water tours can be arranged through the guest service desk, with beach pick up to the destination. Two pools, one for kids/family's and one for adults only...open from 9am to dusk, so if you dont want the noise of pool fun....dont stay in the rooms near the pool. Grills to cook out on.....ground level ocean side rooms have a larger patio area......but again, two lower ocean side rooms are right next to the pool. the only thing I wish was that they raked the beach....but it is a nautraul beach setting so I understand why they dont.......good for shelling. Our stay was very nice....we would stay there again!

The sandpiper was wonderful. Right on the beach. To our surprise on check in we had to pay a 75.00 fee for use of hotel pool and activities. Not include in the Orbit room prices. Per the sandpiper. Not a great start to otherwise very nice hotel.

Our stay was actually quite pleasant. We spent the majority of our time on the beach. Did not spend the $15/day for chairs and umbrellas, but instead purchased our own beach chairs at the local Publix for a little more than 1 day's rental. Our beach-view room was on the first floor. Great lanai to sit out on and watch the sunset, but a little too close to the Volleyball net and to the chair/umbrella storage. There wasn't a lot of privacy and it could get pretty loud, both from the volleyball players and the guys driving their little tractor back and forth setting up/taking down the beach chairs. The full size fridge was great. We were able to eat breakfast & lunch in our room and then go out in the evening for a nice dinner. The Publix is within walking distance, but beware that it is extremely busy most of the time, so there was never a "quick trip".

Sandpiper was great, clean, beautiful rooms, great porch on which to have coffee and watch the ocean. Free coffee every morning. My only complaint was an issue with the older air conditioning unit. Didn't work good the first night, very loud noises, and had to open the windows. Repairman came in the next day to fix it, and it was much more comfortable the 2nd night. I loved that they gave you privileges at their sister hotel The Pink Shell at the other end of the island. we were able to park our car there and go to Jacks for dinner in the hotel; sat at a table outside and watched the sunset.

Front desk wasn't helpful with information about the area nor in checking out

The first night we were awakened by a loud and frequent intermittent noise. We called the office and Mike took care of it within minutes, the noise turned to be a broken soda machine. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed fresh coffee made each morning by the staff. It was quiet and relaxing. I want to especially thank Mike and his wife for helping us out, and making our stay more enjoyable. The weather was so beautiful.

The Sandpiper Gulf Resort is fantastic!! It consists of 3 buildings. They aren't the huge high rise type so I was happy! The room was beachfront and very comfy! The kitchenette is very well equipped with a full sized fridge & a 2 burner stove! Everything was great! I will definitely return & highly recommend!

Hotel was clean and on the beach; however, rude front desk staff and slow follow-up from management.

Everything was great! The staff at the desk when we checked in was friendly and was able to tell us great places around town. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. overall, I'd stay there again!

It was great except I booked the penthouse and at the last minute I was down grade because the owners came

My family went over THanksgivng break 2013. Hotel was great in some areas but poor in others. Great location, beach, staff. Poor elevator broke (climbed 3 flights of stairs). Room cleaning inconsistent. Breaker in room got tripped several times and alarm clock was broken. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will be returning.

We were in Ft Myers for a babymoon. The hotel is located on a beautiful strech of beach. We walked the beach in the morning and the evening. Our room had an oceanview with a patio that overlooked an adult only pool. The patio was perfect for watching the sunset evey night. It was a quick drive to the local restaurants and shopping.

The room was perfect for me ,conveniently located,oceanfront full kitchen and felt secure without a worry in the world. Perfect get away. Able to drive short distance to lovers key state park, sanibel islands, i love the south end of the beach absolutely gorgeous views. I was also able to use facilities at their sister property which includes spa and heallth club, waterfall pools ,bongo beach bar. Staff at night when i arrived was great as i got in around 11. Super helpful and great personalities. Had waverunners parasail for rent right outside hotel . Also had grills outside. Eerything about trip was great. I will definitely stay here for many years to come.

very nice older motel but with upgrades to bring current. Beach is just out the door and in November the crowds were minimal and weather was almost perfect. Close to some nice restaurants, we plan on going back again next year.

NICE APARTMENT RESORT, VERY GOOD LOCATION, IN FRONT OF THE BEACH, THE ROOM ARE CLEAN BUT WITH SAND ON THE CARPET....

It was AWESOME!!! I was so excited to stay at a hotel that was near the beach a great price and view of the beach the staff was amazing.

Front desk personel was great, the housekeepers were great. Room was clean and comfortable. Great view from our room. Only downfall - pool was undersized and parking needs addressed.

Nice, clean, decent sized rooms. Full sized refrigerators in all the rooms that I went into. Full sized microwave and stove. Two very good gas grills. Nice sized family pool. And the beach is great there! No complaints.

This is a great mid-Estero island hotel right on the beach. The rooms have kitchenettes which is great - except my microwave was broken. Each room has a nice porch/balcony. Location is simply perfect, and they have two pools and free parking. The rooms are a little outdated, and while I was there, they brought a FL working dog through the room to check for infestation. I liked being right at the beach and slightly away from the bustle of the shops/bars/etc. Lover's Key State Park and an afternoon dolphin-watching tour at Good Time Charters were the highlights of my trip.

The beach was great but the carpeting was sandier than the beach.
