“Lovely beach view, but disappointing overall.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed the large screened-in balcony with the excellent view of the gulf.the beach is clean and not overly crowded; very family-friendly.
Our suite was clean and roomy, though rather outdated. The staff was very friendly, but not very efficient.

First of all, take them seriously when they say that check-in is at 3:00 pm. Though we were understanding of this, we had checked with them twice earlier in the afternoon, and they said they would call our cellphone. We check back at 2:15, and they said that the maid had just finished and the room needed to be inspected. We sat in the lobby for another hour, within 10 feet of the front desk. When we asked again about our room at 3:15, they said that they had called our cellphone to let us know it was ready. We had been sitting in the lobby in front of them the entire time, and the phone had not rung, nor was there a missed call. Throughout our stay, the room was never cleaned until late afternoon. After spending most of one day on the beach, we returned to our room to nap and clean up at 4:00. Our room was still not clean, so we put out the Do not Disturb sign. The front desk called and woke us up because the maid was ready to clean our room. Don't expect better service in the bar near the pool either. Apparently if you haven't been there all day shmoozing with the servers, they ignore you.

The area of Fort Myers beach itself, including the neighboring restaurants, bars and merchants, is a bit trashy. VERY big with the spring break crowd, and sirens could be heard rushing by 10-15 times a day.

This is a hotel and it presents itself as a hotel. Other than the location, this is not a resort.

The staff is courteous. The pool and surroundings are very nice.

The rooms are well appointed. The hotel is making changes to the rooms as they are attempting to go condo (I am not a fan of this.). The rooms have some food preparation facilities, just do not have a full kitchen which my wife and I prefer. With so much fresh seafood available at places like Beach Seafood, we like to prepare for ourselves rather than eat at a restaurant at times.

Nice place to stay if you want standard hotel fair.

The exception:
The grouper sandwich at the pool bar is spectacular. Even when we stay elsewhere on Ft. Myer's Beach, we stop by for a grouper sandwich.

My wife and I thoroughly researched lodging options before finally choosing the DiamondHead Beach Resort Hotel. Having never been to SW Florida before, we were essentially travelling "sight unseen". From the moment we arrived at the resort, the staff was friendly, pleasant and continuously delivered great service to any and all of our requests.

After spending a week on Ft. Myers Beach and walking by and through many of the other hotels and resorts, my wife and I agreed that we had overwhelmingly made the right choice! There is no nicer, well-accommodated hotel/resort on the beach, and the staff at the DiamondHead is definitely second to none.

We can't say enough good things about this resort. How anyone could possibly write a negative review about this hotel is unfathomable to us.

Room Tip: The "pool/gulf view" rooms offer a great view of the pool area as well as the island, beac...

Our family of three stayed here in April 2011, in a one bedroom beachfront room. Room was very clean, had a nice balcony to view the ocean, and a small kitchenette. It was near the Publix grocery store, and it was a short walk to the Times Square center of time. The beach was wonderful, and we found many shells. We also enjoyed the pool area. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Spent 6 nights here as part of a driving holiday. This hotel has to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed, and we've been about a bit! We e-mailed in advance asking for a room with a view of the sunset and this upgrade was provided at no extra cost, we even got a room on one of the upgraded floors. Room facilities are superb with good quality crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils. The rooms include a microwave, double hob, sink, dishwasher and refridgerator, so self catering was easy.
The room was kept spotlessly clean and every member of staff we came into contact with was friendly and helpful.
Will stay here again.

this place is fantastic! customer service was exceptional. they've done some upgrades since the pictures posted on their site. one major improvement I was told is the towel service. now, when you go down to the pool area to get towels, they have a sign up sheet with a rep there - all you do is sign your name, room # and how many towels you took. Then turn them in at the end of the day and they mark you off. there were 2 of us and each day we got 4 towels- no problem. service for food and drinks at the pool was great. they had games and we won some free drinks. time share person came through the area once to ask if anyone wanted to listen to presentation- told no and they left and didn't bother again. room was clean and the view was exactly as was advertised on site. close to restaurants/bars/shopping- about 1/2 mile from the pier for great dolphin watching. I highly recommend this place!

My husband and I stayed at Diamond Head in mid February. The staff is very professional. There for any of your needs, but not over kilt. Accommodations very clean. Food very good. Beautiful pool, very warm and comfortable.:) I would highly recommend staying here I definately would return.

Room Tip: any room you select will give you a fabulous view!
