    We loved our stay at The Outrigger during the last week of March, and already plan to go back next year! The beach is super wide with beautiful sand, rooms were nice for the price, restaurant had great food and service, but best of all was the Tiki bar with live music every day!! Big kudo’s to Olivia and Kevin (the BEST bartenders) and to all the workers who went over and above to make our stay really enjoyable!!

    Lovely family friendly hotel steps from the white sand beach! Hotel was clean, staff was friendly and food was great. We loved the vibe of the Tiki bar and the fun vibe it created next to the pool and beach. This hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway or a family vacation. Hotel did a very good job of social distancing and requiring masks as needed. The trolley stops right in front of the hotel and for .75 you can ride all the way to the square to shop, eat , check out the local bars, or fish on the pier.

    We stayed here for 5 nights in February for a polar vortex getaway from the Midwest. I am in hospitality and work at a 4 diamond resort in the Midwest. I know the challenges the hospitality industry has faced in the wake of COVID-19 with staffing, business levels, social distancing, etc. We had an office side efficiency with a king bed. Our room was super clean, well maintained and cheerful. You can tell the owners care very much about this property. It was also, very affordable considering we came during high season. While we did not get daily stay over service, we did request a room refresh half way through our trip and they were happy to oblige. You can request towels, garbage pick up and anything else you may need anytime during your stay. The pool was very relaxing and never overcrowded and the beach on this part of Ft. Myers Beach was exceptionally wide and beautiful. We loved the live music nightly at the Tiki Bar and enjoyed getting cocktails while we were at the pool. I paid $8.50 for a frozen mudslide but that is to be expected when staying in a resort town. Everyone was very helpful and there is a computer in the lobby to print boarding passes or anything else you may need for business purposes. Since all of the rooms have exterior doors and with the a/c on in our room it was nice and quiet. Not one disturbance from noise from other guests. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, even for my husband who usually struggles with back issues on hotel mattresses. I would stay here again for sure and appreciate the fine hospitality that this place delivers. Tip: When traveling during this unprecedented time and knowing that employees are risking their own health so that you can be on vacation, please be generous with tipping!

    This was a long weekend getaway from the cold weather back home. We traveled with another couple. We each reserved a resort view room. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were having issues with charging our devices. The staff person was there in minutes and checked everything out. The problem was apparently in our cable. The Tiki bar was a nice place to hang out and have a drink. Coffee and tea in the morning included free refills. The beach is wide and renting a cabana was a great deal at $15 with $5 off. The rooms had recently been updated and WiFi was prevalent throughout the resort even on the beach. Definitely recommend and will likely return!

    Great Resort....Friendly Staff, needs work with services

    This is a great resort, it is small, but family oriented. We enjoyed it as it was so small and not like a high-rise hotel. Tiki bar was fun and out door dining with great staff. Beach is quite a walk from resort, but all white beautiful sand. Rent a cabana and enjoy your alone time. Shells galore to hunt! Rooms are updated, but not cleaned everyday due to covid. Our stove only had a couple burners that work, put trash outside to be picked up worked fine. Don't put your towels out unless you keep a few for next day. They are not replenished as promised and we had to go to office to get ours everyday. Despite calling for them. If you are on the office efficiency side, the "pool guy" comes every morning at 5:30 and parks and unloads his equipment there. Woke us up every morning and we even asked if he could not park in front of our room, but it never happened. Traffic is heavy and road construction could keep you in a long slow process to get anywhere, but if you stay and not go anywhere, this is a great little paradise for you.
