How to Get There
We stayed here last week as the launch point for a trip to Cabbage Key. We weren’t staying for long, so my review is based on one-night’s experience. The property is beautiful, our room was great and everything was well maintained. The reason for my 3-star eating was our experiences at the outdoor bar and the indoor restaurant. We went to the outdoor bar and sat by the fire for about 20-25 minutes and more than one waitress walked by several times taking orders and not once did anyone stop to take our order for my party of 2. After a while getting no drinks and mosquito bites, we went inside and sat at the bar of the inside restaurant. Here we eventually got served, after 10-15 minutes of indifference (there was a total of maybe 10-15 customers in the whole place, as it was late evening, about 9:45). The waitress finally brought our wine and a flatbread pizza and we saw no more of her until we finally just asked for our check. The food/beverage service was simply not up to par for a property like this one.
The resort is immaculate and beautiful. My room was clean and I thought the service was good. Nice pool area with a restaurant and bar area . Service at restaurant was only ok and very slow. Love that there is live music at the restaurant. There seems to be some Lively nightlife in the marina too. I really don’t have any complaints at all. If you are looking to relax, this is the place.
The property alone is worth the stay. The amenities, the restaurants, the overall condition of the facilities and grounds are exceptional. We had two things that detracted from the visit, however. The first was the room location. We had planned this vacation almost eight months ago and made reservations so we could get one of the better rooms with views. Unfortunately they put us on the second floor above the laundry facility with essentially only a view of the grounds. The place was full so they could not accommodate our requests for a better room. The other somewhat disturbing thing was that house keeping missed us two days in a row. The first time they showed up at 5:00PM and we were in the room and couldn't leave. The next day we called housekeeping and requested that they take car of the room while we were gone. They said they would be there at 11AM right after we left for the day. Imagine our surprise when we returned at 4:30PM only to find our room uncleaned since we left. Now we were starting to run our of stuff and the trash was piling up. That was our last day. I mentioned this on checkout only to get a shrug. One other thing and this applies to many other hotels as well. And that is the placement of the shared doors between adjacent rooms. I wonder who the architect is who thinks that's a good idea. It is if you want to hear everything in the adjacent room and in this instance smell the smoke or vape or whatever it was they were doing over there.
This is a very nice resort in a town that is short on attractions. Stayed three nights on points. When we arrived the manager who checked us in said the place was full so even though I am a Gold member there were no upgraded rooms to be had. After some discussion he then spent almost ten minutes searching the computer and voila he got us into a very nice room overlooking the marina.
The suite was large and very nice though some of the furniture was showing some wear. The screened in balcony was a great place to relax and with the ceiling fans it kept it cool during most of the day.
The pool was decent as was the nearby bar. With the ridiculous resort fees that are so common now at most places we made sure to take advantage of the shuttle boat to Fort Myers Beach - free with resort fee, otherwise $25/person. The cruise to and from was pretty and nice in itself.
We also took out their cruiser bikes for a few hours though Cape Coral is not a great biking area. They do have many bike lanes but they are not very scenic. The bikes have seen better days.
As others have mentioned this resort is away from restaurants and shops so you need to get into the car if you want to eat at places other than in the resort complex. Also getting to this place off of I-75 is a trek.
Finally, all of the staff we interacted with or just passed in the hallways was super friendly.
A great experience.
We stayed in a spacious and comfortable one-bedroom condo. The staff are very attentive, and the water taxi to Fort Myers Beach is fabulous! the Grounds are lovely. We drove to Sanibel for a day which was lovely. We highly recommend this resort!
