Returned 2 weeks ago from a relaxing stay at the Gullwing (10/13-10/20/07 ). We stayed in unit 905, 3 bdrm beachfront room, incredible sunsets right out your master bedroom wall of windows, Units ending in 05-06 , ie: 905 (floors 1-12) are beachfront. 03-04 in middle of building, 01-02 facing island.
We had the place to ourselves during week as the "season" had not started. Beach is wide, but sand was not hot (92 degrees all week), pool small and shallow 5' max depth but still nice. The salty taste was in the water but managment again indicated it is not by design, suggest you bring goggles. While walking on sand bar just off beach sand dollars a plenty, especially south of the complex.
As has been noted before this resort is on the south end (quiet) part of the island and if you are staying for any length of time you should rent a car. Rt 41 Tamaimi Trail has large malls with many dining options both south toward Naples and North toward Fort Myers.
I also wanted to add our family to the list of people who have enjoyed the jet ski dolphin tours, $100.00 per machine (you drive if over 16) $10.00 per passenger for 2 hours. I think we saw at least 20 dolphins including one which jumped out of the water in front of us while stopped and a mom and baby. Many locations to rent from, but we used the one behind the Hooters on Estero Blvd (2000 block) Island Tours? Darren was our guide and Eric took our reservation and was putting the machines in the water when we arrived. Photos to follow, enjoy Jeff
