My wife and I visited the weekend after Thanksgiving through December 1 on the second morning of our visit I was surprised by a rat jumping out of some folded clothes. In the room that we were moved to after notifying the front desk of the rodent, water would drip from the ceiling above you in the bathroom when ever... More

We found the location perfect, great view. Food was pretty good. But it sure needed to be renovated. Really run down, it's a shame because it's in such a great area. The restrooms were clean. Great service.

We came for the beach and it's the best feature of this resort. Long and great for walking in sugar-soft white sand, swimmable and shallow with sandbars. That was most important for us and we got it! Great bar drink service right to your beach chair too. Upon arrival, the run down appearance of the hotel exterior may put you... More

Reserved a king bed, got a 2 queens. Railing on deck falling off. Toilet was unstable. No hot water last day. Food was excellent at Island View and Sun Deck. Definitely a place for early twenty aged crowd. Loud music at night. Beach service was great. Jennifer is a great waitress. Will we stay there again, probably not.

We were seated by the host at the roof top restaurant. That was the last time we were able to interact with a member of their staff.

My cousin lives in Ft. Myers and every time we visit, we ask to come to Lani Kai! The atmosphere is fun. It can get a bit crazy around Spring Break times, but even still once you grab a spot on the beach it's relaxation all the way. Chair-side service makes it easy to come down without a cooler and...
