Gulfview Manor Resort

A great place for family. The property is well managed and there are enforced rules to keep the property nice for all to use. This is not a hotel, you are renting an apartment. So you have a full kitchen, which I thought was great to save on the restaurant costs AND gas grills. The gas grills are excellent for those that like to grill as we do. We had five of us in a 2 bedroom and had plenty of room. It is right on the beach. Now, Fort Myers Beach is just that, no matter where you stay, you have access to a huge beach. The water is more like a bay than ocean, no undertow or huge waves, very kid friendly. We had family staying at other places on the beach, and all agreed that this was the best value. There are fancier places but you pay for it is my observation. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating. They have beach towels to use in addition to the usually linens in the apartment. They have a DVD library that was useful too. Parking was adequate and access is away from the business of the main Fort Myers Beach area. Oh, and the views were fantastic. No noise to speak of either, so you can rest anytime. All in all just a nice comfortable stay.

Room Tip: check their web site for rates vs. what other web sites quote as rates, there is sometimes a differe...

Overall I do not recommend this hotel. You have to walk more than a football field + to get to the ocean, there are too many rules from the management, the size of the unit is adequate but absolutely no decor. The manager Ken gives you a not so friendly speech when you check in. The only good thing is the view from the apt.

First, let me state that we advertise that we have one of the largest beaches in Florida. Unfortunately you didn't read that information when booking the apartment. Secondly, I understand that people are very excited to get to the beach and enjoy the area. We are NOT a Hotel, we are fully furnished Rental Apartments. Because we supply many free extras, we have to advise you the responsibilities in using them.

We would have gladly refunded you any funds paid if you were so unhappy.

If you stay here bring your own toilet paper. They give you one roll and you have to the office to get more. In addition, the manager/owner watches everyone constantly. He made us and our children very uncomfortable. The management is very rude. Make sure you get everything in writing as they are likely to change the check out policy without notice. I must admit the beach is very nice. The hotel itself is outdated and the manager needs an attitude adjustment.

Located right on the beach but away from the street noise. This was not just a room, but an entire apartment complete with living, dining and bedroom and full kitchen. Had a view of the beach from our private screened in patio. Free convenient parking. Free wifi. Even free beach towels! This place was immaculate (and I am a fussy housekeeper). Only negative was the early checkout time of 10 AM that ruled out a quick swim and beach stroll on our last day. There was a mix-up on our room number and rate, but it was very quickly and courteously resolved. We will never stay anywhere else when visiting this beach.

Room Tip: Worth the few extra $$ to stay on upper floors for the view. Side facing rooms are larger than direc...

We were pleasantly surprised at this place. It was clean,spacious and in quiet location. We had a room (more like apartment) with a nice patio overlooking the beach and sunsets. Upon arrival was given a lot of info and great beach towels. They have changed internet service to hard wire because of problems with wireless service. We had no problems with service while there. If beach isn't enough for you there are large tv's with Direct TV and more channels than you could ever watch. The kitchen was well equiped for basic cooking. Brand new appliances. The only thing I needed was paper towels. We went there to relax and that is just what we were able to do. Beach was lovely and dog friendly as we took our Springer with us. Nice restaurants near by or a Publix, we used both. Pool area was very nice and lots of parking. Staff friendly and always seemed to be working on something to keep place neat. There are grills for outdoor cooking and a laundry room if you are staying a while. The bed in our room was a queen and we are used to a king but while a little smaller was still comfortable. There were plenty of towels both in bath and kitchen. We are pretty self-sufficient and didn't mind not having maid service so that was not issue.
