Located on the outskirts of Fort Myers, just off the last exit before the causeway to Sanibel Island, this high-rise Marriott takes full advantage of its waterfront location, presenting beautiful views of Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Kayak or sail on the waters of San Carlos Bay, indulge in luxury at the finest spa in the region, play with the kids in the large pool, or grab the free shuttle over to the beaches of Sanibel Island.
Over 300 guestrooms and suites feature large, flat-screen televisions, private balconies and high-speed Wi-Fi. Connecting rooms and cribs are available, and suites frequently include living and dining areas.
Two main restaurants will satisfy even the most temperamental eater in the family. Families can experience a unique dining experience as they board a 100-foot private yacht for Sunday brunch. Guests enjoy a private fishing pier, a myriad of water sports, and three outdoor pools on the grounds. A family-friendly kids’ club for ages 5 to 12 provides supervised activities to keep the kids entertained, and a huge spa at the hotel provides an outlet for parents who need to relax.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 10 times. It is a beautiful location, with outstanding views. The rooms have ocean views and are very nice. The staff is very nice and eager to help. I plan to return every year.

Only got one star because can’t give anything lower. Made reservations three months prior and called week before to confirm. Entire wedding party was in one building and ours was 1/2 mile away. No help from valet to help with luggage. Not even an offer. Manager was of no assistance whatsoever. Everyone was checked in early and had there rooms and we were left waiting in lobby waiting for a room to become available for 4 hours. People who arrived after us in our party where taken care of. Early reservation, early arrival and late for wedding rehearsal. Thank you Marriott. Frequent traveler but will be reluctant to ever recommend this hotel again. Marriott should be embarrassed with the shoddy service. Definitely not worth the money. Frequent Marriott user so kind of shocked at the lack of customer service from management down.
