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Our suite was clean and roomy, though rather outdated.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.
