We just spent our anniversary weekend at Lovers Key Resort. It was a nice weekend away from home. We enjoyed an eighth floor one bedroom suite with beautiful views of the back bay and Lovers Key beach. The room was clean and comfortable and the outdoor balconies with furniture were just the right place to enjoy an evening sunset. We enjoyed a meal at Flippers, the tiki bar, on premise. It had good food and a fun atmosphere. There was also a complimentary breakfast that included all of the usual fare. Just enough to get your day started with coffee, juice, bagels, waffles, etc. It is a very quiet time at the beach right now so we enjoyed the pool almost to ourselves. We felt like we made the perfect choice for our anniversary get-a-way.

Lovers Key Beach Club & Resort is on its own little Island with a hugh free form pool with a large waterfall and swaying palm trees all around.A great hot tub off to the side and strong jets . My husband & I love to travel & go to the Islands every year, but this felt like being there at half the price. Check in fast & simple, up to a very pretty condo overlooking the pool & agreat sun set sitting on our huge balocny . 7th floor is the best, I could yell down to him at the pool. Every day we saw dalphin playing right off of our beach, sea birds, & manitee gliding by. Found out that a trolly bus for 50 cents takes you to all the beach bars & shops. Fun way to sight see. Great place to eat right on the grounds called Flippers, we had lunch drinks, and came back for a Grouper & steak dinner. Short 2min. walk across the road is a beautiful white sand beach with lots of sea shells or drive into park and get on shuttle to a long strech of more sea shells. We wil be back & cant say enough about Lovers Key

If you want to get away from all the people and such, this is just over the bridge and surrounded by nature. Great pool and hot-tub over looking the bay. Nice fitness center too. You wont be disappointed.

Imagine a luxury hotel, pool, and restaurant where every day dolphins and manatees play just out front. Fishing all around, boating, the best state beach parks known, and the hotel staff and facilities were all wonderful. This is one of those rare places that is large enough to seem like they may not care if you ever come back, but they DO. The staff were all fantastic, nice, seemed happy, so our time was happy as well! At one point we asked for some more towels and pillows, and Christine at the desk actually RAN to get me them herself.. At 9:30 at night. We used to stay at Sanibel for our getaways, but this has quickly become our new favorite location. Sanibel has become jaded a little.. and is more commercial then we realized. This area is pure nature. One last thing.. the photos are completely accurate, the pool and room were completely clean, the room had a hot tub, an ocean view from the hot tub from even inside the room, the bed was great. The restaurant looks a little like a keys "joint", but the food was excellent. Surprising actually. Don't believe the negative posts. We actually STAYED here, they are likely from a competing venue..

We were drawn to Lover's Key Resort since it is the closest resort to Lover's Key State Park. We just completed a two night stay (July 8-10) and realize that we have found our new favorite place to be on Florida's west coast. For us, the hotel was the perfect blend of comfortable, upscale resort with rugged natural beauty. The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and service was impeccable. We specifically appreciated Christine, Kim, Greg and the staff of the on-site restaurant, Flippers. We were able to make food for our kids in the room, watch dolphins at play and even a manatee from the dock at Flippers Restaurant (where we all enjoyed some delicious meals), go to Lover's Key State Park where we rode bikes along the beautiful Black Island Trail, and down to the South Beach where we ate ice cream in the surf while playing around. We went fishing at a variety of sites within the Park, played on the playground at the Park's bayside, and had a picnic lunch. After we were dirty and tired we retired to the Lover's Key Resort pool to relax, followed by the room's Jacuzzi-style tub with a view of the Bay. We even saw dolphins playing from the room's balcony on several occasions throughout the weekend! Everyone in the family had a great time! We have already booked our next weekend getaway. In 11 days we can relive the fun, only better! We can't wait.

My wife and I spent our (15) year wedding anniversary at the Lovers Key Resort and were totally satisfied with the location the tropical views and the overall accommodations.
The staff was very friendly polite and eager to assist in any way possible.
The resort is very well kept along with the pool and hot tub they were very clean and maintained.
Flippers onsite Tiki bar had a great 360 degree view of the intercostals waterway at times you can even see the dolphins swimming past.
We would highly recommend staying at this resort it’s a beautiful location.
We plan on revisiting again.

What a beautiful suite that was fully equipped for cooking and very accommodating for a family. The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful. The beach restaurant conveniently located in the parking lot had good food and friendly service. The pool was beautiful and the grounds were well kept and clean. We would definitely stay in this resort again.
