“Best family vaca!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This is the 5th time visiting the pink shell and they have yet to disappoint. Always immaculate, always fun. I would certianly recommend. In addition, while you're in Fort Myers Beach, visit the following restaurants... sure to please
Parrot Key- best king crab legs
Bayfront Bistro - truely top notch
The Lighthouse - beautiful sunsets!

Room Tip: All are suites- stop at a market on your way and pick up refreshments and snacks for the room

I was not disappointed in the Pink Shell at all! At first I was concerned because our driver from the airport said the resort was "nostalgic" - including being very old and not serving good food. Boy, was she wrong! The hotel is beautiful - yes, the main pool is full of children and this is where the bar area is. However, travelers should know up front that this resort is off the beaten path - at the beautiful Northend of the island - it's quiet and relaxing, not a party and bar scene. There is a pool located in front of building 2 that we were at the whole time - no children and bar staff would bring you drinks.

Our room was more than adequete - my best friend and I shared the room - it had everything we needed. It was in the Sanibel view villas - two double beds, kitchen, screened in balcony area with a comfy rocking chair and lounge chair with a breathtaking view of the gulf of Mexico and the beach!

The Times Square area is within walking distance - it's a long walk if it's hot though! However, the trolley stops write in front of the Pink Shell so it's easy to take that as well. I didn't see much at Times Square beyond the typical beach stores with souvenirs, etc. If that's what you are looking for, then head down to the square.

The beach is gorgeous! Powdery soft and white! Dolphins were spotted frequently along the beach and walking to the Bowditch Park next door is worth the trip. We spotted gopher turtles nesting and enjoyed the abundance of shore birds.

The food never disappointed us at the resort - though a fellow traveler said the food this year was much improved over the food last year. We never left the resort to eat - the staff were great -friendly and accomodating.

I recommend this resort for families - they definately had great activities for kids, etc. and I recommend for friends and couples traveling. You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Room Tip: Sanibel Villas are great - two double beds and kitchen area. Views are beautiful! I'd recommen...

Pink Shell has great staff, fantastic view, easy beach access with chairs provided and close to everything in Ft Myers Beach. On site restaurants are excellent. Only weak point is maid service comes very late in the afternoon. Large beach area so didn't feel crowed.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front. They have some that are more like hotel rooms, and some that are full 2b...

Perfect is exactly the word I would use to describe our week in Ft. Meyers at The Pink Shell! If you are looking for a beautiful, fun family destination - this is it. We had a suite on the top floor right on the beach - a BIG screened in porch made for perfect lounging with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Water park like amentities and the beach about 20 steps away made this a dream vacation for my children. It was our first family vacation and I look back on it with the BEST memories! The Pink Shell truly made our stay so wonderful...and I could go on and on about that beautiful white sand beach!! I return to it in my mind when it is snowy and cold here in Colorado. :) I could not recommend this resort more!

Room Tip: Definitely opt for a room in the newer condo buildings.
