Our beach-front room was updated, well-maintained, clean and comfortable, not to mention the gorgeous view! We loved OBR and hope to come back often!

We just came home yesterday from our vacation at the OUTRIGGER and we can honestly say, it was the best time we have ever had! It far exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating our anniversary, and this was the first time we had been to Florida, just the two of us. We were finally able to relax and unwind, and really rest. Everything we needed or wanted was right there. Our room was clean and comfortable, The Tiki bar was just a delight, listening to the live music and bartender Jimmy was the best~! The food at the Deckside cafe was wonderful and we were treated so well by all the staff. We truly thought we were in paradise with the pool and the beach and the beautiful sunsets every night. Thank you, thank you, everyone at The Outrigger resort for a most memorable week. We are planning on coming back next year and can't wait~

When reading comments previous to our visit I expected a run down older hotel and boy was I pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean and our beachfront view was spectacular.We were greeted by wonderful front desk staff, thanks to Eddie, Kevin, Steve and Cheryl. Guest relations saw to it that my husbands medical needs were met when it came to the cabana rental...thanks Kathy and staff.The beach was beautiful and kept very clean as well as the deck area,an all you can eat breakfast bar was offered and you could not beat the price or quality of the food. I could go on and on about The Outrigger and all I can say is that we loved it so much we booked our rooms before we left for next years vacation and cannot wait!! Thanks Outrigger !!

I had my Mom, Wife, Daughter, Son ,Sister, Niece and 3 grand kids with us. There is always something to do there at resort and the area around Fort Myers. Check out Sunsplash at Cape Coral if you have kids with you. A lot of fun. The rooms were clean and kept clean the 8 days we were there! I miss it all and look forward to returning next year!

Absolutely the BEST! Due to a flight delay we weren't able to arrive until after 2am, so the beauty of the resort did not become apparent until later that morning. Positively wonderful. Fantastic white sand beach, great pool and deck area, and a terrific tiki bar. The Deckside Cafe was perfect for breakfast each morning ~ and very affordable. Our room was clean, cool and very comfortable. The Outrigger's location is the best along Estero Drive - convenient to shopping, other restaurants and the Beach Theater. The Outrigger is a wonderful place for the entire family to enjoy a spectacular vacation. We will definitely be back - very soon!

Only complaint was the tiki bar should be open until 11 or 12. We stayed at 6 different resorts on this trip and this was earliest any bar closed. We spent 18 days in florida touring beaches and baseball games and of course bars. Thank you for a good time.

Absolutely what you want for a beach vacation!!! We found a great fresh seafood market called Trico seafood and my hunky guy cooked me fresh Florida shrimp and crab each night. but the 2 we went out.( at least 100 restaurants) I love efficiencies for this. We saw an enormous 1000lb. Manatee 15 ft. from shore 1 day. I loved swimming in the Gulf, it was warm and calm, plus, it was very CLEAN. You can watch the sunset melt into the water while embracing your sweetie- Never mind how harmonious the tiki bar band sounded each afternoon....Anyway- I found some cool new friends from England and Germany/Switzerland too. Nonwithstanding, the staff was curteous and professional. They all stayed focused on the ultimate guest satisfaction. The only down time was finding ashaded parking spot if you rent a car. By the way, I felt very safe. I will definitely return!

The bartenders, Phil, Patty and Jim (better known as $6.50... he'll know) were so accommodating and friendly, some of the best bartenders yet. Was our first time there and will NOT be our last. Thanks to all for such a wonderful time, and save room for us next year!

We arrived before check-in time and the staff graciously checked to see if our room was available. It was but we were also offered an upgrade at a significant discount. We took it and were glad we did. Our room was quite nice, no problems at all. We enjoyed the quietness of the area the resort is located in. The cafe was under construction while we were there, so the cafe was moved to the deck area. So nice to sit outside and dine-enjoyed it! The pool was just the right size and was nice and warm with plenty of pool towels available. I loved the beach just being footsteps away. We only had one total rainy day while we were there, but that is okay we took in local attractions and did some shopping, of course. Thanks again for a great stay!

Once again we had a wonderful time. We really look forward to seeing Phil and Jim. It's so great to go on vacation and actually know someone! It's too bad that the cafe wasn't really working until the last day of our visit. We do enjoy going there. Phil tells us you'll be having pizza...can't wait.

The cleaning staff does a great job with-out missing a beat! We rented a car at airport and used it very little. Every thing you need is so close. The only issue we had was across the street at charleys boat house. My wife loved the all you can eat prime rib, bbq ribs and crab legs. They did away with this deal with-out us knowing and she was VERY upset. I dont think we will visit them again. Why change such a long time thing? She still complains about it because that was one thing she really loved to do! The cafe was being remodeled at the outrigger and we was getting bit-up eating on deck side by the cant see ums. But overall it was still a nice visit!

Which we did this time. Just relaxed and enjoyed the sun, beach, and the Gulf. And, of course our afternoon visit's to the Tiki Bar. Phil, Jim and Patty - see you soon. And for the record - you really need to go no where else than the the Deckside Cafe to enjoy an excellant meal!We were so sorry to leave but thank you for the wonderful time. We will be back. Again.

We stayed at Outrigger the first week in April. The beach was wonderful, the $9 breakfast buffett was average and filling, the housekeeping staff was thorough, but two changes would have been Cindy in the restaurant who was rude and at check in, our room wasn't ready at4:30pm and they gave us keys to a room that was already occupied, a bit embarassing because the couple in the room was changing. I'd say overall 3 out of 5 stars.

If you get the chance, eat the $12 salad bar at Charlies across the street. Totally worth it!

Next time, we're staying on Sanibel Island.

Wow.... where to start? We originally intended to stay in the Marco Island area but it was too too too expensive and commercial. Loved The Outrigger and the cozy feeling over a large commercial high rise hotel. Room price was half of what we would have spent ! The guest service shack was great in getting us set up each day to lounge on the beach in their cozy cabana chairs. Pool was heated to a very comfortable level. Bar staff at the Tiki bar was very accommodating considering that it is always the place to gather, and very busy. Live music every night!!! Free internet access in the front office! Seriously where can you get all this for such a reasonable price! On the last day we wanted to get as much sun as possible and they even accommodated us with a half day rate so we could use our room and shower again before departure. Each staff member was very helpful. A little slow one day on getting us towels, but mostly wonderful. We never like to stay at the same place twice, but I would stay here again.......Superb!

It's warm today in Buffalo, but I'm dreaming of being back at The Outrigger. We love it there and cannot wait to come back! We even wanted to cut our trip to Key West short to come back!! Very relaxing, staff is outstanding (especially Cindy from the Cafe`) - everything was great. Hope to see you all again soon! Maureen & George, Buffalo, NY

Me and my wife took our first vacation alone in almost 20 years since our daughter was born and it was worth the wait. The weather was fabulous and the alcoholic beverages were cold. The food was excellent from the cafe and the Tiki bar atmosphere was inviting and lively. Room was nice and cozy and the view was great. We will return in March of 2011 working on the details after the holidays are over. Have been all over Florida from Orlando to Key West and The Outrigger is my favorite.The only downfall is that their isn't enough nightlife but then again a couple of cocktails and a walk on the beach is good enough for us. You can't beat the accommodations, staff, atmosphere and the combination pool, Tiki bar and beach.

I just have to say that this was a fabulous resort. The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. The resort was very clean and really quiet. It was nice not to have children running around screaming! The beach and the sunsets are beautiful. I have been to Fort Myers 6 times and now plan to come back every year and stay at this resort. It really made my holiday. PS - Charley's does fantastic food!

We love it! We like spending some of our holidays and taking weekend getaways there. A favorite tradition is Easter and July 4th. The fire works off the pier are the best. We stay atleast 5-6 times thru the year. We enjoy the beach all day, go across the street to dinner and get flashlights and walk the beach at night looking for night creatures. We love staying at The Outrigger!!! Nothing like going up to the tiki bar and getting a rumrunner and sitting on the beach listening to the waves and seeing the dolphins.

I'm already bummed out that I had to leave The Outrigger and Fort Myers Beach. It's so drab and gloomy here in Ohio. I just got home this past Sunday, and we stayed at the resort for most of last week. This was my third time staying at The Outrigger, and I'm too reluctant to stay anywhere else because I feel I'll be too disappointed staying anywhere else. I'm already trying to arrange a trip to come back in September. For all of you down there on the beach, soak up some sun! My tan lines are already fading.

My husband and I recently stayed at the resort and enjoyed our entire time there. Staff was very friendly and rooms were very clean. I must say that the resort was also very quiet. Kids were not running around out of control. We enjoyed getting up every morning and walking the beach and other areas. Our friend recommened two different places to us and we originally had reservaitons toward the end of the island and I am so glad we changed our minds to stay at The Outriggers. We drove by the other place and it was very busy and loud. You will see us again next year and we will be staying out entire trip with you.

There were 15 of us (ages 8 - 65)and we had a great time. The resort is beautiful. It has everything you need (beach, pool, sundeck, Deckside Cafe, clean rooms and maid service, and of course the best - The Tiki Bar with live entertainment). There's even a cheese and wine party (free) on Thursdays. You don't even need to leave the resort if you don't want to. We plan on making this a yearly family designation. You won't be sorry if you stay here. Thanks to the management and staff. See you next year!
