“Great place on the beach”
Reviewed 17 September 2006

Stayed at Diamondhead Resort July, 2006. This was a great place to stay right on the beach. Wonderful views from balcony. They do have screened in balconies, not so great for pictures. However, the hotel was wonderful. Rooms were spacious. Nice pool with beach view. Walking distance from Times Square and many restuarants and bars. Can't wait to visit again.

  • Liked — Directly on the beach
  • Disliked — Screened balconies
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't go in July - Red Tide

We stayed on June 19th & 20th, the only thing wrong I found was the smell Alberto dredged up from the gulf the week before. Everyone assured us it normally was not like that and that it would eventually wash away.
The staff were all super friendly and helpful and the grounds were very clean considering the storm. Our room was very clean and comfortable for the three of us, and when our son had an emergency with the plumbing maintenance was there in no time to save the day!
We used the parasailing offered for an additional fee, and found it well worth it. The captains were very accomodating and made the experience very memorable for our family.
Diamond Head was also a very short stroll from the pier so there were plenty of restauraunts,shops and things goings on.

This is the best hotel near the boardwalk area. The rooms were clean and the beach wasn't crowded for June. I really suggest families to stay her for the price because it's a good atmosphere. Call hotel direct for better prices.

In my opinion, this is the nicest property on Fort Myers beach. Great location on the beach. Large spacious rooms with huge screened balconies. Parking was never a problem and was free. The views from the gulf view suites are great. Be sure to get a room that faces the west so that you can see the gorgeous sunsets. The ocean front rooms are also nice but the gulf view rooms (those that face west) allow you to see the ocean/beach and the city. We sat out on our balcony and did lots of sunset-watching.

We would definitely recommend this property.

We stayed at the Diamond Beach for a week with our 2 boys aged 8 & 18 and found the resort good, for the most part. Not a whole lot to do for fidgety kids - there's the pool and the beach, but no activities or game room, etc. Lots of food and drinks available, but kinda pricey, although from the guests we saw, money is no object. Rooms were fantastic. Be sure to request beach front. We had a room on the 11th floor above the patio/restaurant and pool and a couple of nights I had to get up and shut the patio door because there were some rowdies. I just wanted to hear the surf, not yelling and loud laughing until 2 am. We moved. Lots to do in the area, however there were no great restaurants within walking distance. Drove to the Crab Shack just over the bridge near the marinas. Great spot to eat!! Also, drove 20 mintues to Bonita Springs, lotsa good shopping and restaurants there. Went to the dog races there also. That was fun!! Captain Tony's deep sea fishing crew are the best. Caught lots, met some great people and had a good time. Beach is not like Cuba, lots of red tide and icky stuff at the waters edge and stingray's are always a danger. Pool was nice, but had to go down at 7 am to claim chairs for the day. Southwest Florida Airport is one of the slickest international airports around. Bright and clean, everything handy, smooth as silk. All in all, nice place, but after calculations, an all inclusive resort holiday to an island would have been more economical.

Me and my girlfriend just went down for a quick "Girls Lay In The Sun Have Fun & Relax" weekend. After visiting Diamondheads Website it appeared to be the perfect place. We are both in our mid thirties and didn't want to deal with "Spring Breakers". (The Diamondhead does not allow anyone between 18-24 w/o an adult over 35). Little did we know that every family with infants, small children & teenagers would be staying there. They take over the entire pool area; out of the 4 days there we were only able to lay at the pool once. If your not up by 7:00 - 8:00 to put a towel on a chair you don't get one. Also we noticed that alot of people would put towels down and never use the chair; they would be in the pool with the kids all day. Nor did they pick up after themselves around the pool; if your done take your towel drop it in the bid, pick up your garbage, just have some respect for other guests. Anyways we head to the beach only to find out that the resort does not provide beach chairs for its guests. To me for the price you pay that is unexceptable. Granted we layed on the beach on a towel anyways (better bring your own they don't allow pool towels to leave the pool area; nor do they have enough to accomidate all of their guests). The pool bar is about 10ft from the pool and is completely in the shade but they do bring drinks to you at the pool. The rooms are overpriced. You can get alot more elsewhere. The staff was not overly friendly. I guess would only recommend to families if you can get a good deal. The location is good you can walk everywhere and feel safe. Overall forget about Fl go to the Bahamas the staff will treat you like gold no matter what, the sun always shines, everyone's happy & can't beat the price!

From my experience everyone should stay here, I'm not sure why these few other people had it so rough, but it was a fantastic friendly place to stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Diamond Head Beach Resort Hotel on Fort Myers Beach in March 2006. I had never been to Fort Myers but was impressed that Diamond Head was the most beautiful of them all.

Our check in was as smooth as silk and we headed on up to our room on the 12th floor! Room 1201, FABULOUS view! The room was great, nothing too fancy, just right. Kichenette, Bathroom, Living Room, KING size bed, and a balcony that wrapped from the living room to the bedroom. We left the doors open every day and night so we could hear the ocean. The rooms were very clean and so was the rest of the resort.

The pool area is fantastic. There is a bar at the pool named CABANAS`, the waiters and waitresses came to you at your sun chair and asked if you needed anything to drink or eat, they were prompt and courteous. They also have a sound system at the pool in which they play 80's , music all day every day! It kept me entertained while I was tanning and not reading my book. The ocean view from the pool and the room was AWESOME! The pool was large but not too large and is only 5 ft deep so that was nice, you could just lay around in the pool without having to tippy toe around the pool. They also provide beach towels so you don't have to bring your own!

Every time we ran into a Diamond Head Staffer they always asked how our stay was going and asked if we needed anything. We really enjoyed our stay and were reluctant to leave.

This hotel is in walking distance of GREAT FOOD and SHOPPING! We never got back in our car after we checked in.

How anyone could say anything bad about this resort is beyond me. It was fabulous and I have actually reconsidered Honeymooning in Punta Cana to honeymooningback at the Diamond Head Beach Resort and Hotel.
