“family reunion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

We had a wonderful family reunion at Gullwing at the end of June. In spite of the stormy weather, we were able to enjoy some beach time, grilling on the deck, swimming, hot tubbing, kayaking and canoeing at Lover's Key, shopping on Sanibel, and gathering in the resort conference room.
The people at the reception desk were very welcoming. I had requested a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom ocean front above the 2nd floor and close to each other. They were only able to accommodate our "close to" request, for which I was grateful, as we went back and forth often, and we could see the beach very well from the 2nd floor rooms.
The rooms were very nice, and the kitchens well-appointed. As per requested, one unit had a high chair and crib in it when we arrived.
I would really enjoy staying there again.

We stayed in a Gulf Front 3 Bedroom on the 10th floor. Very spacious rooms, K, Q & 2 twins. The view is great but the walk to the beach is a little far. Amenities are well kept, starter packs are a nice touch for a weeks stay. You can purchase more in office "cheaper to buy at store though". Beach towels are a good size. Kitchen is large with a breakfast bar, dining room has view of gulf to bay. Living room couch has a terribly uncomfortable pit group couch that is hard as rock so hopefully you will not need to use it. If you are sensitive to other rooms noise, we were able to hear everyone above us walking around, above & below us opening & closing cabinets & drawers, sliding chairs across ceramic floor. The patio furniture is nice but you can hear that scraping across floors also. Screaming & Radios can get very loud from pool area. It seems there is no restriction on radios volume level. You have to rent beach chairs, or buy them. If it rains you are stuck without because they pull up the beach chairs at first sighting of a cloud & you are out the money & the chairs for the day. We paid for a week 4 Chairs & 2 umbrella's but only got to use them 1 full & 1 half day with no reimbursement for loss of days or days it rained for a hour & cleared! Pillows where filthy beds, are clapped out.

Room Tip: Gulf side has a best view, noise level from pool does not matter what floor you are on, Bay side for...

Dear DM_Realtor,

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay at GullWing Beach Resort. I apologize for the disappointments involved in your stay with us, however am pleased that there were parts of your stay with us that you enjoyed.
We make every effort to provide great accommodations and are disappointed to hear when something doesn’t go as one expected. Thank you for informing us about the noise level at the pool. We do have rules to help regulate noise at the pool area and your comment will allow for us to look into ways of controlling this better in the future.
To address your concerns about the couch, we want to inform you we have recently purchased new sofas for all of our rooms to maintain the quality of accommodations our guests expect.

Again, thank you for your comment. We apologize for any disruptions and hope you will return to our resort in the future.

Sunny Regards,

The GullWing Management Staff

We loved our stay at Gullwing Beach Resort! This was our second stay and we booked through Sniqueaway for a great price. When we checked in, we were upgraded to a three bedroom Gulf front unit on the tenth floor. There were six of us: my husband, myself, our daughter and her husband and our two young granddaughters. The bedrooms were large in size each with a tv (two of the tvs were older models...not flatscreen). The kitchen was a great size and was well equipped. The living room had a large flatscreen and the eating area was perfect although we ate most of our meals on the screened balcony. The girls loved playing on the balcony and being screened the area was safe and free of bugs. We used the pool area a lot and also the grill area which had seating and several grills. A washer and dryer were in the unit. The resort is on a wide space of the beach and at the south end of the island...traffic was not a problem. Publix was not far away and there is a shuttle service to take you back to the more active part of the beach. We ate most meals in, but we loved Reese's Restaurant for breakfast and Fresch Catch Bistro for dinner on the Gulf. There is a new children's museum in Naples...not far away...lots of fun for the girls. It is worth the trip to visit...little pricey $10 per person. The only negative was we experienced the presence of fumes from "pot" really strong in our laundry area on two separate occasions coming from another unit through the dryer vent. We did call about it and on the second occasion some one came to verify but probably impossible to figure out which unit it came from although my suspicions would be above or below us. It is a great place to stay and I hope will go again soon.

Room Tip: The Gulf front side is worth the view you will have.

As a Florida native, I have stayed at hundreds of beach resorts in the past 42 years. None can compare to Gullwing Beach Resort. This is the third year I have returned with my family for our summer vacation. We stayed the week of June 17th through June 22nd in a 3 bedroom beach front condo on the 5th floor. The condos are huge, well appointed, decorated beautifully and have a thoughtful layout. There is ample room for our immediate family of 4 and grandparents. The views are spectacular and take your breath away! In addition, the rooms are the clean and well maintained. This is a must for my "type A" personality... This family friendly resort has a lovely pool, hot tub, large deck furnished with 4 immaculate barbecues, and a covered outdoor eating area. There is also a tennis court and gym, so they tell me (I never visited either). The front desk has many current videos to rent, books, and games to keep the kids busy on rainy days. We have also visited the Ft. Myers downtown shops and restaurants which are located about 5 minutes north of Gullwing and shouldn't be missed. The beach is wide and clean, with baby-powder-soft sand, gentle waves, and plenty or room to spread out. The sea is teeming with life. We have seen dolphin, sting rays, a manatee, turtles, multitudes of fish, starfish, sand dollars, conch, hermit crabs, and other various sea-life. If you are looking for a relaxing family vacation that feels like you have landed in paradise, don't miss staying here. There is no way you will be disappointed!

Room Tip: Select a room higher than the 4th floor on the North side of the building for beautiful sunsets and...

It was a very nice and relaxing stay however next time I would like to be on a higher floor. I was on the 2nd floor near where people were checking in and out, it got a lil noisy at times in the weekday in the AM hours

Room Tip: there is no restaurant or room service.
