Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Great Value

    "Great place to stay in Ft Myers Beach. Far enough away from the pier area to be quiet, close enough to take a short trolley ride. Clean and well decorated. Mr. Payne (the owner) even called us during our stay to see how we were doing. Thank you Sir"

  • Perfect accommodations and location

    "Totally enjoyed every part of out trip. Condo was perfect for our family as we made most of our meals there. We did go out a few times but with younger kids, eating in was our best bet. Went to the beach and pool most days and the other guests/neighbors were very friendly. Definitely going to return and stay here again as it's close to everything you can think of."

  • Excellent stay

    "I highly recommend this place to families with children or couples. Excellent location and excellent apartment equipped with everything a family needs to feel at home. Beach during the day and pool during the night make you feel in paradise. The owner was very helpful and very detail oriented making sure the guests had everything they needed for their stay."

  • A Tropical Oasis

    "We recently (March 2014) spent a wonderful week at the Desert Rose. What a jewel! The layout of the house is fantastic, especially if you plan on visitors! Our college-age boys were both on Spring Break, and it was the ideal location and landing spot for them and their friends. My husband and I had lots of privacy in the Master on the 3rd floor, and were never bothered by noise and activity in the rest of the home. The pool was wonderful, I floated around in it like a manatee for hours! The artwork is great, and the entire vibe of the home was very cool and very Key West. Truly an oasis and fabulous retreat. Thanks, Skip! We'll be back! (P.S. Our dog, Buddy, was welcome and loved it too.)"

Fort Myers Beach Travel Tips

More than 6,200 people call Fort Myers Beach home. This town located on Estero Island wasn't officially incorporated until December 1995, making it a newer Floridian hotspot. Although Fort Myers Beach may be small, more than 1.8 million visitors flock there every year to enjoy the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, golf and entertainment along the Gulf.

There's no undertow in Fort Myers Beach, making it the "World's Safest Beach" and perfect for families who want to get their toes wet. The entire island is 7 miles long, a nice walk or jog for those who want to work in a little exercise on their trip.

The area that was once home to Native Americans and Spaniards is a favorite among tourists who dine on "pink gold" shrimp and celebrate the fishing industry with the week-long Shrimp Festival held in March.

Fort Myers Beach Attractions

There's a lot to do on the tiny island of Estero including water sports, beach activities and outdoor and indoor attractions. There are 25 public beach accesses on the Gulf side of Estero Island that are marked for easy spotting.
