Very nice clean place. Couches aren't the most comfortable. Staff in registration are very helpful. Would definitely stay there again. Mattress very comfortable in second of the three bedrooms.

We spent four nights in a 2 bedroom island view condo. At first I was disappointed because our
room was located on the 2nd floor, first room down the hall from the registration desk. I had wanted to be on a higher level for better views. However when we walked into the room it was so large and beautiful! We could see the beach/ocean if we wanted to watch the sunset etc. We could barely see the bay but that was alright. I went with my mother and friend. The bedrooms were located on opposite ends of the condo so if we wanted privacy we had it. The condo was well equiped with microwave, dishwasher, washer, dryer, large flat screen tv in living room and TVs in bedrooms. It was definitely the right choice to stay here. It was about the same cost as staying in a small hotel room and so much better! Staff was helpful and friendly. Could rent DVDs and borrow books at the front desk. Coffee and Tea available all day in lobby. We walked to the TIki Bar at the Holiday Inn for lunch and drinks. It was just a few doors down. It was also in walking distance to Santini Plaza which had about 4 different restaurants and a CVS next to it. We ate lunch at the Fish House which was great. Not fancy but good food overlooking the Bay. Our best meal was at South Beach Grille. 2 for 1 meals 4:30-6:30p and food is top quality like you would find in Miami! Meal was awesome right down to the vegetables! We also ate at Charlies' Boathouse which was good too. It was also in walking distance to the Beachhouse Movie theatre and a 7 Eleven. Would definitely recommend this place and will be returning! The area is so nice. Easy to get to and from the airport if driving. However you really don't need a car since you can walk to nearby places and a trolley runs up and down the beach for 50 cents. Lover's Key state park is a mile or two away. A wildlife bird area is along the beach right near the hotel. We walked the beach for miles up to the Causeway looking for shells etc. Found many sand dollars and nice shells. Everyone was so friendly in this area. Gullwing is the perfect place to stay in Fort Myers Beach. Beach is not crowded since it is so wide. It was such a relaxing vacation and a great area. The Gullwing and Fort Myers Beach is my new favorite place to stay in Florida!

Room Tip: Can see ocean from 2 bedroom island view rooms.

My husband and stayed two nights at GullWing Beach Resort and were amazed at the spectacular ocean/beach views from the balcony/porch and living/dining areas from our "island view" condo. The view of the river/bay from the master bedroom balcony was also beautiful. The spacious suite was attractively decorated and furnishings looked new. The housekeeping staff apparently are great because our suite was very clean. We loved the convenience of the washer/dryer and well equipped kitchen as well as two bathrooms. We enjoyed the pool and hottub and the location on the beach. The front desk staff were very helpful and the use of the computer and printer and covered parking were appreciated. We also enjoyed an afternoon trip to Sannibel and Captiva islands and a morning trip to Naples downtown.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views.

We booked this condo for 2 nights because it was right on the gulf and close to my relative's house in Cape Coral. The location is on a slow moving, 2 lane strip of island with many small restaurants and beach boutiques on both sides. The town looks somewhat dated and not up scale, compared to other parts of Florida that I have visited recently. However, much detail was given to the charming interior of the condo as far as drapery, pictures, a bar with stools, lighting, 2 flat screen tv's , a washer and dryer with soap, iron and ironing board, walk in closets, a new white kitchen , a balcony, a small jacuzzi tub, etc. Everything was very good.....except, the one thing that always means so much to me, which is a good night's sleep. I found the bed to be noisy and very uncomfortable. The sheets were very wrinkled and wimpy. I expect fresh, crisy sheets to sleep in. The foam pillows were uncomfortable. The towels were plentiful, however, very stiff and scratchy. I expected a higher quality for a resort. I did tell the management when we checked out, since they asked if I enjoyed my stay.

It was a wonderful, regenerating, romantic and really well being stay in very spacious rooms/flats with an imazing sea view and directly on a fantastic, white sandy beach. The staff was extremely friendly and competent.

We have a family of 6 and we stayed here over Christmas. Our room/condo had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Plus a full kitchen. This allowed us to buy food and eat there. This save a lot with a family our size. We didn't have an "ocean view" room but from our balcony we could still see the ocean. The staff was helpful in picking out a place to eat as well as answering any question we had. One of the nice things there was that even though there were chairs to "rent" on the beach, the gull wing had chairs you could borrow as well. That was nice! Their pool was nice, kids had fun. They also had a hot tub. Another cool thing was they had a BBQ area next to the gazebo so you could BBQ on you own if you wanted. I thought there were lots of little amenities that made our stay just lovely! And the beach! How nice it is, white ultrafiltration sandy beach! My daughter and I found so many sand dollars! As well as some other shells. All in all it was a great time and would recommend it to any one with a big family like us!!
