I liked that it was on the beach. Employees in the office, bar and restaurant were friendly and efficient. Always found a parking spot. Short walk to movie theater and 7 Eleven.
The free WiFi was worthless. Stayed in standard room. Carpets looked terribly dirty. No headboards on beds. Dirt and food crumbs under furniture. Very dusty on shelf and top of tv stand. Small tv. No microwave in standard rooms. People blowing tobacco smoke in your face in tiki bar. Heated pool was very cold. Weather was bad when I was there so I spent more time in the room than I normally would. So, I might be pickier than normal.
The room and the staff.
Construction late morning after arrival in hallways. It was very loud and no warning.
The proximity to the beach Staff is pleasant Tiki Bar
No music after 8pm on Friday night or after 5pm on Saturday Outrigger really needs a bigger pool or a second one
Nice weather and location
The ice machines location
Loved the oceanfront suite, great view, full kitchen(not used though),room comfortable, balcony with fabulous sunsets, chairs and lounger, 2tv's, Staff very nice and helpful. Sent us champaign for our second honeymoon. Tiki bar very friendly, great view of sunsets. Will go again.
Not worth the the price I paid.
Was never informed that there was construction going on right next to our room. They claimed they sent an email out to everyone, which I never got, yet I was even there in person a couple weeks prior to our stay to upgrade our room and at that time there was no construction going on and was never told there would be. We have a 3mo. that kept being woken up with all the noise. No cable the fist night. No internet the entire stay until the couple of hours the last day. Was told it was an island wide problem, yet the resort next door had working internet during the time they did not??? The toilet wouldn't flush unless you held the handle down for 30 sec. There were ants all over the kitchen. When I notified the staff about all these issues, rather than providing good customer service I was treated like, "oh well, nothing we can do about it" and got the feeling like I was being treated without respect because I booked through a deal site and not directly as if that didn't make me a true guest. Not once did any of them even apologize for the conditions. I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. Ever!
The Tiki Bar was incredible, all made possible by the bartenders...Kimberly, Jim and Kevin. They were a blast! The patio was a great place to group up and re-live memories.
We enjoyed our stay, the beach was a short walk from our room. The sunsets were so beautiful!
Wish there was a microwave in room
The beach was absolutely gorgeous and so weren't the facilities. For an old building it has been taken care of wonderfully. The beach, Tiki bar, pool, breakfast buffet all great! No complaints!! Would return without hesitation!
The only thing I thought was weird is the fact that the toilet paper holder in our room was so low to the floor that the paper hung on the floor, but for an older building that's not too bad.
They always seem to want to make sure your stay is enjoyable and worry free.
Lack of late night activities.
Beach front had pool and restaurant
The rooms were out dated factily was old
Great place all a round!
The Outrigger Beach Resort on beautiful Fort Myers Beach exudes old school warmth and relaxation. Fun and family-friendly, this beachfront classic taps decades of hospitality know-how to delight its loyal guests. An unwavering dedication to comfort, value and quality is reflected throughout the resort, from its 144 comfortably furnished guest rooms and studios with kitchenettes as well as two casual restaurants to its expansive white powdery beach, where guests collect seashells, sip pina coladas and can listen to live music at the Tiki Bar while watching dolphins frolic in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
