I always forget just how special the island is until I'm here again. Flight down was interesting. We started to land at Ft Myers RSW and the pilot had us maybe a few hundred feet off the ground when he decided to abort. Ended up flying to Tampa and waiting on the runway in a plane with no air for about an hour. We finally made it back to Ft Myers though and it's been good since. Here's what I have so far:
1. Alamo rental out of the airport - 2 out of 10 - Rented a car for $400 for the week. Car was FILTHY! I'll be saying something to them when we return it.
2. Condo (Pointe Santo) - 7 out of 10 - Overall nice unit but we found some problems. Bathtub stopper didn't work...no taking baths until we bought a drain cover. Dishwasher leaks..can't use it. Clothes dryer sounds like a 747 taking off.
3. The Outlet Mall - 10 out of 10!!! We've stayed here for years and have always just drove by that place. What were we thinking???? Love it!
4. Dining - Whew...here's where I was seriously disappointed. Island Pizza - 1 out of 10 - YUCK!!! worst $90 pizza I've ever eaten!!! I would have rather had frozen pizza from Bailey's. Island Cow - 4 out of 10 - I thought for sure this place would be great...it's packed all the time! We ordered steak and it had no flavor. Someone needs to introduce the chef to spices and marinating.
Overall, we're having a good time. We definitely won't be eating on the island for the remainder of the trip. I don't mind paying for a good meal but refuse to spend that kind of money for a meal I didn't enjoy! We ate at Denny's off of Gladiolus yesterday and it was the best meal I've had since I've been here. LOL!
