Un-prepossessing, an ugly giant overlooking pretty well everything else on Fort Myers Beach, but the guest experience was altogether different. Really friendly and helpful staff (Derek and David), comfortable room with all we could wish for, plus exceptional view over the beach (white sands and an occasional dolphin playing off-shore), clean well equipped gym. And reasonably priced. And from there we explored – the Everglades in a day long eco-tour, Fort Myers (Edison and Ford's holiday mansions) and the duckboard walk thru the 6 Mile Cypress Nature reserve and multiple trips to Sanibel and Captiva Island – bird watching, kayaking though the Mangroves and great meals (Mad Hatters and Key Lime Café stand out)
My husband have been to the Outrigger twice now for weekend getaways. We Love it! Clean, comfortable, gorgeous beach. All staff are very nice and helpful. It is not a luxury hotel, but a step back into classic Florida beach hotel. Well run.
It was nice that the resort was small as close to all amenities, pool just outside our door and beach just steps away from the pool. Coffee available all day! Hotel has no restaurant close but lots of great places to eat only minutes away by car. We did walk to one excellent restaurant about 20 minutes walk away however the trolley travels up and down the main road and takes you where you want to go.

From the moment we arrived until we left it was perfect the view was breathtaking, literally watching the sunset each evening from our 6th floor balcony. And on the other side we had the view of the bay, watching the birds, diving, the boats, saw some dolphins. It was a short get away but it refreshed us in so many ways. Beaches were close by, and really not crowded at all, weather was perfect.
Lovers Key is wonderful and the hotel is lovely. The pool was warm and the restaurant, Flippers has great food.
The state park has great nature walks and many birds. Y9ou can watch from your balcony.
You also have all of Ft. Myers beach nearby if you want more action yet have a quiet placed to return to.
