Reviewed 24 January 2014

WOW- only 2 of us but we could have fit many more people in our 1 bedroom 2 bath condo.
Fully equipt apartment- beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Each room is so big that it felt like we were in a house. Washer dryer, dishwasher all utensils many many towels terry robes etc.. This is a luxurious place.

Gullwing is on Estero beach- It is a very wide expanse with the whitest finest powdery sand.The pool is small but right on the beach and there is a hot tub next to it. The units do not include chairs on the beach but they (2) can be rented with canvas backed enclosures for $20 a day

The Beach movie theater is across the street and there are nice shops close by. as you go closer to the end of the strip it get much seedier. Gullwing is in a nice part of the strip.
We would definitely return and tell our kids to come here with their families. A wonderful place to vacation- maybe even purchase!!

Room Tip: We did not choose an ocean view but you can see a bit of it from the Very large terraces

Dear Franbeth,
Thank you very much for staying with us at GullWing Beach Resort. I'm pleased to hear that you found your room to be spacious and comfortable. We like to make all our guests feel as if they are at their home away from home when staying with us. Yes, we are located on the quieter side of Fort Myers Beach. It's very relaxing yet we still put you within walking distance to some great restaurants. Thank you again for staying with us and we do hope to see you back soon.

Sincerely,
Curt Brenner - General Manager

We did a family staycation - so there were 5 kids (15 months, 2 1/2, 4, 7, and 9) and 5 adults in a 3 bedroom villa. It was AWESOME!!! The condo is huge, with plenty of room for ALL these rugrats. lol! The resort is clean and well kept, with plenty of convenient parking. The BEACH: beautiful, and it is perfect for small children, with plenty of shallow areas where they can play - it is like a natural kiddie pool. It really is perfect. LOCATION: it is a little farther away from the congestion of Ft Myers Beach, and this was great, too (esp. if you are going during high season). But there are good restaurants nearby, with great drinks and live music (you could even walk to these no problem). There's a Walgreens less than a mile away, and they have everything you need for the beach. There's also some cute beach stores. . .. oh, and a movie theatre I think. The pool seemed great, but we really stayed at the beach the entire time. And even though I am sure there were a lot of families at the resort, it didn't seem crowded or overrun with kids - it was perfect. I just cannot say enough great things about this resort. Read all the reviews bc they provide a lot of great information. Bottom line - you will not be disappointed in this resort!! It is top notch!!

Room Tip: Pretty sure they are all nice...

Dear KBoogie,
Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us GullWing Beach Resort. I'm excited to hear that you and the rest of your large group loved the spacious 3-bedroom suite. We really do try to make all our guests feel as if they are at their home away from home, only on the beach! The large beach and the calm waters of the Gulf are perfect for families, and like you said, our location on the south end of the island gives you quiet seclusion. Thank you again and we do hope to see you back soon.

Sincerely,
Curt Brenner - General Manager

POSITIVES:
1. Eric at the front desk was a delight to work with and was very helpful with all aspects of our stay. Kudos to Gull Wing for having him on staff--definitely an asset. Thanks Eric, for your assistance.

2. Location is great--south end of Ft. Myers Beach is less congested and you can easily access the I-75 corridor by driving SOUTH and taking the Bonita Springs exit. If you don't like traffic jams, avoid the north end of Ft. Myers. Gridlock is abundant.

3. Beach front location of Gull Wing is wonderful. Please note that you won't step out of your room and walk into the water. It's about 100 yes (think football field) to the water's edge--but the sand is sugar white and easy to walk in.

4. Beach chair/umbrella rental--$20/day gets you two chairs and an umbrella for the entire day. Well worth it and the chair rental guy is very nice.

5. Resort is clean and well kept. Pool area is fairly standard, nice big pool (no lazy river or anything like that, but the pool is great)--clean, neat, lots of chairs and the water is warm. Great place to meet other guests, socialize with others, etc. Tennis court available--we don't play, but it looked like a very nice tennis court. Newly surfaced.

6. Grill area is available--we didn't use it, but others were and the smell of grilled burgers was to die for. Yum! Maybe next time, we'll fire up the grill, too.

7. Our unit was a 2 bedroom unit, however it was a "lock off" unit and we didn't have access or need for the second bedroom. Extremely spacious kitchen with nice appliances, dishes, utensils, etc. Dining room table that seated 6, snack bar that seated 3 and wet bar that seated 4. Plus large flat-screen TV, comfy sofa and chairs. Two bathrooms both with walk-in showers. The master bath also has a large jacuzzi tub. Lots of storage space in the units, closets are large and several storage areas (pantry closet, 2 linen closets, drawers galore). Flat-screen TV in the master bedroom (we didn't access the second bedroom, so not sure what may be included there).

8. Washer & Dryer in the unit! LOVE this! It was nice to toss in a load of laundry and not have to haul home dirty clothes. Full-size washer and dryer. Also, if you need extra laundry detergent, they sell it by the package down at the front desk. Same for dishwasher detergent.

9. Lobby--has all sorts of odds and ends that you can pick up quickly and not have to run out the store. Also, tea and coffee bar are open.

10. Location is close to Publix grocery store (maybe a mile away) and just a few blocks from CVS drug store, Subway, movie theater, 7-11, etc. Also, close to the Trolley stop if you're so inclined to use the Trolley (we did not).

11. Each unit has a screened porch. Our view was facing north and "island view," which put us on the side of the building that gives you a view of the island (sidewalk, neighborhood, etc.) and ALSO a view of the Gulf. It was the best of both! Would choose this view again. Don't get hung up on "ocean front." The island view rooms are great. Nice porch furniture and a great place to kick back and watch the sunset. But, what the heck, take a walk down to the beach as dusk approaches and watch the sunset with everyone else.

12. All rooms have have an "inside entry"--think apartments. None of the units have doors which open to the outside. Very secure and safe.

NEGATIVES:
1. All units are individually owned and in the "rental system." Although unit #804 was well appointed, the owners of the unit desperately need an upgrade on the mattress in the master bedroom. We've attached two pictures--and, yes, the sagging was not only visible, but miserable on which to sleep. This is a standard king-size mattress (not two twins pushed together) and you can easily see the sagging on the two sides of the bed and the ridge in the middle. Not good. Needs replacement.

2. WiFi is extremely slow (turtle speed…think "dial up"). If you need wifi for business purposes, you could always zip down to the local library (just down the street).

WOULD WE STAY AGAIN?
Definitely! We plan on visiting the area again and this will be our destination of choice. Yes, the mattress was horrible, but next time if we run into this issue, we'll go purchase blow-up air mattresses (like you would use at the pool) and put those on the bed. Wifi issues--we weren't there for work, so it wasn't critical for us. Besides, put the dang computer away, go outside and have fun! You're on vacation!!!

Would've given Gull Wing a perfect "5," but the mattress issue in unit #804 truly needs to be addressed.

Neat, clean, safe, easy location/access to other activities, great beach and Eric at the front desk. Book it!

Left the Don Cesar because we weren't pleased with the resort. Some quick searching we came up with the GullWing resort. Yes it is a bit pricy but you get more then what you pay for. Very large condos. Ours had 3 bedrooms and a bath and a half.

We have a balcony gulf view suite and sunsets are second only to Caribbean.

Great view of the pool and jacuzzi.


The fireworks on New Year's Eve at Times Square were spectacular and the party atmosphere just added to the time.

Room Tip: Any room is worth it but get a gulf view. It also overlooks the pool and Jacuzzi.

This is simply the best place I ever stayed. It was quite a drive from home but it was worth it because we felt right at home. The view from the balcony was great and we enjoyed all the amenities. The staff was also nice and very helpful.
Lovely place.

We have stayed at the Gullwing many times now with the last trip being in July 2013. We love it here. The rooms are spacious and clean. They have great views and a nice huge beach that never seems to crowded. The pool is not large, however its rarely very busy. You also have access to the resort next doors pool area. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The only thing we aren't crazy about is that it is not very close to town square (which has its perks, ex-Beach not overly crowded). They do offer a trolley that runs back and forth to times square which is very convenient. It is within walking distance of a few restaurants, bars, gas stations, and pharmacies which is nice. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Would recommend the ocean view, but all of them have been great that we have had.
