My husband and I stayed there from September 18 through September 25. It was hands-down the absolute best beach hotel/facility/resort we have ever stayed at. Very clean, every person who works there was friendly, efficient and helpful, the room was perfect (very clean, had everything we needed, and had a fantastic view of the beach and ocean even though it wasn't beachfront). It has a very laid-back but fun atmosphere that people of all ages seemed to be enjoying. The Tiki Bar and Cafe had both fantastic service and delicious food. All pricing was extremely reasonable as well. I couldn't think of one negative thing that could be said about this paradise!!! Love it and will definitely continue going back!!!!
Was a good older updated hotel with a good price on a beautiful beach

We stayed at the Outrigger a couple times, the rooms were updated and clean. Was there a few weeks ago and they were undergoing construction, it didn't interfere with our stay at all but now that Hurricane Ian hit, I'm not sure that it's there anymore. We loved staying there, walking on the beach at sunrise swimming in the beautiful ocean and enjoying our vacation there. I hope the staff who were so nice are ok and wish them and the people of Ft Meyers the best.
Great affordable resort on quiet ed og Fort Myers Beach.

Extremely relaxing resort! Friendly staff, extremely clean. There are renovations going on, however they did not detract from our experience..
The restaurant was just ok, but there are plenty of nearby options.
One thing to note, the beach is very deep, so a very long walk to the water. It is a beautiful setting, with very tropical landscaping.

LONG REVIEW ALERT!!*
On May 18th 2022; my husband and I left Connecticut after selling our home and headed south. We really were doing it on a wing and a prayer as we hadn’t found a house yet, despite our best efforts. Our only plan, at that point, was to travel the coast to Fort Myers Beach, staying at beach hotels along the way to rest. All the while virtually viewing houses!
As fate would have it, we put an offer in on our house when we hit NYC and it was accepted by the time we hit Ocean City, Maryland. Our next hurtle was figuring out what we, and our college age daughter, were going to do while we waited the 30-45 days until we could close.
Our last stop was the Outrigger. We had stayed there last November and loved it so we figured once there, we would figure out our next move. Well, our “next move” wasn’t a “move” after all. We ended up staying at the Outrigger for a grand total of 41 days!
Let me just tell you how accommodating the entire front desk staff was, from making sure there was never a gap in our stay, having absolutely everything we needed and just plain being friendly!
Special shout-out to Terry, for enduring my morning trips to see if she was able to secure us another day, another week…she was a magician! Thank you again!!
Housekeeping was always attentive and so hardworking as was maintenance. The rooms are spacious, and trust me, we stayed in every single room type that they offer! We had 7 room changes, but it was seamless and though the beach front room was our favorite, Al, of the rooms are perfect for what we needed. The grounds were always kept clean and I honestly can not say enough about the beautiful beach front.
The resort itself is further from Times Square, which after being there for over a month, I appreciated. It’s close enough to get to whatever you want but far enough away to avoid traffic and crowds.
Tiki Bar was always a nice place to grab a drink or a quick bite, very convenient and service was always good.
It should also be mentioned that most of Fort Myers Beach is still working short staffed and the Outrigger is no exception, but from great customer service to keeping the resort in perfect condition, even while they were renovating, we never suffered.
Of the 4 beach resorts we stayed at on our trip from Connecticut, the Outrigger outshined every single of them!
Kudos to this resort! And even though we now live just a few miles away, we will be back
