Outrigger Beach Resort
Ranked #15 of 47 Hotels in Fort Myers Beach
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Spent 7 nights at the Outrigger in one of their remodeled 2nd floor rooms just a little distance from the pool and loved it. Clean, nice room, friendly and accommodating staff, fun tiki bar, respectable pool, and a fantastic beach. Parking was easy as they made sure there was always room for guests. And though I didn't use it, I loved the idea of being able make a reservation to take a shower before heading to the airport the last day. This is a big plus as I was able to enjoy all of my time right up until I had to leave this way instead of being sweaty or sandy from being on the beach. Their location is great too as you're not right in the heart of all of the traffic but so close to anything you'd want to do (Bonita Beach, Naples, Sanibel/Captiva, and so much more). The only thing I'd have changed would be the Internet connection as it was slow and streaming Netflix was nearly impossible. Otherwise, an incredible week was had. Thanks Outrigger people!

Great place to stay close to the amazing beautiful beach with white sand allover. Great rooms, pool and pool bar. They serve a super breakfast buffet at a low price, all you can eat and the waitresses are spot on from the cover of Supertramp’s legendary ‘79 Breakfast in America album. There is a great little beach movie theater across the road – great place to be :)

Been going to the Outrigger for many years and we have never been disappointed. My son and I just got back from there on 1/22/14. What a great time we had. You will find it right on the beach. Many activities you have available there on the site or close by. The beach is large and the sand is white and beautiful. Nice entertainment during the week and weekend along side the Tiki Bar. Fantastic Deck and a nice pool. Hungry, take in their small restaurant and either eat inside or on the deck. They will bring your food to you.

I am ready to return later in March.

Room Tip: Normally we stay in the rooms facing the Gulf, however, this time since it was just my son and I, we...

Had a excellent stay, room service excellent. I did not have a reservation. Tiki bar, nice view, huge beach, senior crowd but a overall great place. Reasonably priced had a nice stay. Food in small restaurant is good and service staff friendly. On a convenient bus stop that will take you anywhere locally if you have no car. Kind of dated room and hotel (old Florida decor) but clean and great staff. Live music every night!

BEACH - sure, BAR - check, the rest??? The other reviewers seem to overlook the obvious - this is an OLD PROPERTY that needs some work and does not measure up to all their hype! Generic rooms with a TINY TV, BAD COFFEE, bad location at the far southern end of FT. Meyers Beach, an overpriced restaurant for what is offered, a bar with high priced drinks in a less than prime time location --maybe back in the 70's and 80's this was great but now---spend the few dollars more to be in a better place at the NORTH end of the Beach! Better yet - why stay in Ft. Meyers at all! There are MANY BETTER places to stay in Florida! If I owned Outrigger I would be falling all over myself to make sure each and every person who stayed with me was 100% happy. I was not happy at all and while a good effort was made to make me forget - how can you forget EVERYTHING!

Room Tip: The only GOOD VIEW rooms are the oceanfront rooms. ALL the rest mainly just have a view of the parki...

I personally spent a great deal of time with this guest in an effort to appease his complaints. In fact, I have his hand written thank you note on my desk. The last line he wrote 'Thank you for turning it all around'.

Our goal is to make every guest happy. It seems that this guest may have a more difficult time achieving a 'happy' state of mind. I am sorry that we were unable to provide that for him and his family.

We had a great time at the outrigger. The first night we were on the second floor amd the beds were hard and room noisy.
upon a request to the front desk we were able to move to the third floor and beds were great and rooms quieter.
The staff is great, location is perfect on the greatest beach on Fort myers .

Well kept rooms with good service. The hotel also has a nice Tiki bar that has bands for happy hour. You can park your car and not leave till check out.. They have a diner on property a restaurant across the street and a trolley that runs up and down the island.
