If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place to stay...Lani Kai is NOT the place. We didnt get to sleep until about 2:30 am thanks to the club and the loud music directly under our bed...which vibrated the bed and the whole room. This went on until 2am. Had I known this fact, I never would have agreed to...

Even after reading all the bad reviews we decided to stay at the resort, and we had a great time. The view was amazing from our room. The beach was so much fun, kept nice and clean and there was a band playing all day which made the beach so much fun. The hotel had an older charm to it,...

We stay here every time we go to Fort Myers Beach. It's the "place to be" on Fort Myers Beach (as is attested to by the many many boats that park on the sandbar here daily). The beach is a great beach-front hotel, every room faces the gulf, the staff is wonderful, and the party never ends here. The beach...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay this past weekend! There was only one negative about our trip...We arrived on the 4th of July, and they were selling parking places to beach goers and didn't have parking available for actual hotel guests. That doesn't seem like the right thing to do! On the flipside, the activities going on for the 4th of...

Once again, the Lani Kai has proven it is the anti- Naples-esque scene for southwest Florida. Yes, people party here. Yes, the music is loud, the beer is cold, and the view a great. But thing thing that people in other reviews on here miss is that if you don't want that atmosphere, you don't have to do everything through...

This is the worst place we have ever stayed! We wanted a nice restful beach vacation and found ourselves on the Florida version of Jersey Shore. There is a live band every night until 2am at the outside bar accompanied by yelling screaming party goers. We couldn't sleep it was so loud!! The bed was horrible and the room was...

If you party to the point of puking, you will want to stay here. It has vomit-proof vinyl furniture which I have NEVER seen in any hotel, motel or party dive I have ever stayed in.

This place has not been touched since it was opened. They have the best location and view on the beach. Such a same that the owners only care about bringing in the money. This place is as dirty as you have heard and as noisy. It is the only place on the beach that has its own security and it...

We stayed here for a week in June 2014. This was my second stay, and my boyfriends first.
