Located about 20 minutes from the Fort Myers airport, the Hyatt Coconut Plantation hotel in southwest Florida has a bayfront location on a private island. Rooms have private balconies overlooking the onsite golf course and you can choose from suites with one or two bedrooms. The feel here is residential, with full kitchens in your suites, as well as posh amenities like whirlpool-style bath tubs. The four swimming pools onsite include a 1000-foot-long lazy river pool. And activities to keep everyone entertained include shuffleboard, table tennis, volleyball and basketball. Dine at the onsite restaurant or take the complimentary shuttle bus to one of many great local restaurants in the area.
The beachfront location on Estero Bay puts watersports and sand castle-building moments at your doorstep. There are many nature parks and of course, the stunning Gulf of Mexico beaches to enjoy in the nearby area, too.

My girlfriend and I stayed at one of the studio condos at the Hyatt Coconut Plantation, and we had a lovely stay. The pool area is lovely, and the accomodations are very nicely addressed in each condo. The hotel resort is quite stunning in general, and the staff is extremely accomodating. The condo is approximately 900 sq feet and has cooking facilities and a nice little lanai to hang out on. The hotel, which is close by, is also available for guests and can be used if you want to toggle between one pool area and another.
I love the resort and always go back, and would recommend both the hotel and the condominiums too. It's a great place for couples or good friends and you feel as though you truly are at a resort. It's got a nice SPA, Golfing for the men, and workout areas for adults - and of course, the children have several activities they can participate in as well.
The Hyatt Residence Club at Coconut Plantation is a very nice resort with lots to do and is in a very convenient location. The condos that are available can be a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom. They are nicely decorated and the rooms are serviced every day with clean towels and other items. They are fully cleaned two times a week, Washer and dryer are in each condo.
On the premises is a small convenient store which has basic food and beverages. At this location you can also order breakfast or lunch. There are tables outside where you can eat. You can also order supplies from the store before you arrive and they will be put in your room before you arrive. There are two outdoor bars that serve all types of beverages. There are several dining places at the nearby Hyatt Coconut Point Hotel.
There are two large pools, a kiddy pool, and a lazy river on the premises. There are a couple of whirlpool outdoor pools and a sauna. The Raptor Bay golf course is connected to the resort as are tennis courts. There is a shuttle bus that circulates from the resort to the Hyatt Hotel and to the area where a boat leaves to go to the beach which is on a private island.
After a five minute drive you can be at the Coconut Point Mall and the Ft. Myers airport is about a 25 minutes away.
All in all, this is a great place to spend a vacation.
