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)
Amazing vacation! Ages in our family ranged from 44 to 3. There was something for everyone! Our 2 room villa was beautiful and spacious! The view from the living room and balcony were sensational! The hotel staff is very accommodating! The hotel was within walking distance on the beach to the pier and times square. We were busy from early am to late night. I highly recommend this resort.
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.
My husband and I wanted to spend an evening at the beach. What a nice treat for us! The room had a beautiful view, it was clean, comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. We were worried because of the negative reviews and what the locals said, but our December stay was awesome.
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.
