“Great view - clean but a little dated”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Just returned home after a 9 day stay at the pointe Estero Beach Resort. Views were great and we had the ocean view not even oceanfront. The condo comes well equipped with what we needed for our stay in terms of dishes, pots, towels, utensils etc. The fixtures were a bit dated like our kitchen faucet was white and had caulking on parts of it, the vegetable sprayer didn't work at all but that really isn't a big deal but that whole fixture set needs to be replaced along with the bathroom set in our second bathroom. We used the patio and community bbqs almost every night. They have four Weber bbqs and they are terrific. The pool area was clean and never packed do getting space was easy. The Beach is Gorgeous!! 200 feet of frontage and miles of walking. Watched pelicans daily and the water was nice to swim in. All in all we would certainly stay here again just hope they update a few things to make it a little more updated. I know they have plans for the master bathrooms which is great.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

My family and I stayed at the Pointe Estero Beach Resort from April 30-May 7. The resort was very nice and the staff were really friendly. We went to downtown Fort Myers and it was wonderful and the music was great. Can't wait until we stay here again.

We went for 3 nights to Ft. Myers Beach with 4 children; ranging in age from 11 - 18. The suite had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a pull-out couch. Overall, the suite was nice; however seemed a little outdated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The pool area was very nice and the gazebo-style tables outside were nice for an afternoon lunch. The beach is quite a distance from the resort, but the resort is right on the beach. Beautiful sunset view from our room. Beds were very comfortable. We found a few empty water bottles and candy wrappers behind the night stand and quite a bit of lent/dust near the washer/dryer, but nothing that would keep me from staying again.

This was our 4th stay at the Gull Wing/Point Estero property.This time we stayed at Point Estero which is more adult oriented. For the first time we did not have a beach front room,we had a one bedroom condo bay/beach view and it was great! The sunsets from our balcony were just as beautiful!! This room was actually better decorated than the website picture showed! They are very friendly and we would recommend the renting of a cabana or chair and umbrellas for the beach. Its yours for the duration !! No getting up at 6am to put stuff on a chair.

It was a great experience to stay at this hotel. We had a two bedroom apartment with Beach front. The apartment was bigger than our home. The staff was very helpfull. Location was also great. We'll hope to come back.

Pointe Estero had always been one of our favorite places to stay when we are in South Florida. Thus we have been frequent visitors to this place for years. This time, however, we were not satisfied with our accommodations! Our two bedroom beachfront condo was definitely in disrepair and we even wondered if the condo unit (second floor) had an owner besides the Sunstream chain. Both bathrooms needed major upgrades, as the floors and tile were bad, tubs looked rough, outdated sinks, lights, and the faucets should be replaced.

In addition, some of the carpet in the guest bedroom needed spot treating, and the carpeting in the lobby/elevator areas were wearing thin.

However, without complaining or even bring these items up, (we are not complainers), we were told upon checking out that the guest bathrooms are to be completely remodeled soon and the main bathrooms will receive attention later this year as well as replacing the outdated whirlpool tub in favor of a more modern walk in shower. These items just about cover most of our concerns.

They have recently done an overhaul of the exterior grounds which looks very nice. Perhaps with a little carpet work and these bathroom updates, P E will return to its days in glory.

For years I have suggested an on site bar or sandwich shop, but that is a whole new ball game with its own problems.

We will return AFTER we see reviews of the redone Pointe Estero.

Staff is great but the traffic isn't!

Room Tip: The higher up the better for a great view. We were on the second floor with a limited view and lots...
