FORT MYERS, SANIBEL & CAPTIVA
DIAMONDHEAD BEACH RESORT & SPA
Set alongside Fort Myers’ white sands and moments from local shops and restaurants, this beachfront resort hotel offers 124 1-bedroom suites, each offering separate living room, fridge, microwave and private balcony. It’s not only the rooms which make this a good choice for families but the friendly and unimposing attention of the staff ensure that all feel welcome, with the proximity of the beach and the safe swimming pool area an undoubted lure for young and old alike. You’ll know what fare features strongly at ‘Chloe’s Seafood Restaurant and Steakhouse’ – the lounge there is also a fun spot of an evening – whilst ‘Cabana’s’ is the poolside venue open from late morning to early evening, serving food and drink throughout.
SANIBEL INN
This low-rise 93-room hotel is an ideal hideaway, standing on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico on pretty Sanibel Island. You may choose to stay in a traditional bedroom or one of the larger suites or two-bedroom condos with kitchen, all providing comfortable accommodation and pleasant views. ‘Island Time Bar & Grill’ is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and this will also be your haunt for pre-dinner cocktails or a refreshing beverage during the day.
An outdoor pool offers further cooling off opportunities and if you care for a little exercise, you could snatch a game of tennis or take a stroll along the 600-feet of beach and marvel at the myriad shells that have been washed up on the sands.
THE WESTIN CAPE CORAL AT MARINA VILLAGE
Cape Coral is about 10 miles south of Fort Myers and here, with its own 175-slip marina and alongside the Caloosahatchee Rover, you will find this upscale resort hotel. The 263 rooms and suites provide everything you could wish for your stay, and the private screened balconies offer a peaceful retreat overlooking the waters. Seafood is unsurprisingly a speciality at the Westin Cape Coral, and both
‘Marker 92’ and ‘The Nauti Mermaid’ offer a fine selection of marine fare as well as steaks, salads and many other mouth-watering culinary delights. We feel the hotel is a good choice for couples, with
3 outdoor pools, tennis, onsite shops and a water taxi service to
Fort Myers’ beaches ensuring there is plenty to keep you occupied during your stay.
SOUTH SEAS ISLAND RESORT
In splendid seclusion at the tip of beautiful Captiva Island lies world- famous South Seas Island Resort. Hotel rooms are an option but for a true South Seas experience, we would recommend a 1, 2 or 3-bedroom villa dotted along the shoreline or within prestigious ‘Land’s End Village’, each offering full kitchen and private screened balcony, and all just steps from the sands. Three restaurants,
two markets a ‘Starbuck’s’ and a grocery store serve anything from takeaway pizza to some of the area’s finest dining, and two bars will ensure that you never go thirsty. With two main lagoon-style pools, many others scattered throughout the grounds, a family water park, a full-service spa, 19 tennis courts, a 9-hole golf course and water sports galore, this truly is a resort for the whole family.
