Located less than 30 minutes from Fort Myers in the gorgeous Gulf Coast town of Punta Gorda, this European-style hotel features a beautiful rooftop pool. The large pool deck is surrounded by inviting lounge chairs great for parents to relax in while children swim and play. The town of Punta Gorda is a great place for families to explore the unique waterfront shops and restaurants that overlook pretty Charlotte Harbor. The 63 spacious guestrooms feature an upscale design with king or two double beds, a flat screen television, an iPod docking station and free Wi-Fi access to stay connected to home and work. This pet-friendly hotel offers a complimentary coffee station in the lobby and the onsite restaurant serves delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Parents will love to unwind at the fitness center and than relax and socialize at the daily happy hour at the rooftop pool as well. Self parking is free.

The Wyvern appears to be an upper end hotel. And, it is. But, they also have very reasonably priced accommodations. Very courteous service from all staff members we encountered. The main restaurant and bar are excellent. Great food and service. The rooftop bar is also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Punta Gorda was such a sleepy fishing town back in the 70’s. Now, it has a hip vibe and a great nightlife. Plenty to do and the Wyvern is within walking distance of many venues.
Opt for an upper floor facing north for a great view.
I enjoyed a great stay at the Wyvern Hotel. It is convenient to downtown Punta Gorda, parks, and the marina. They have a very nice restaurant on the lobby level and a rooftop bar and pool area with the best views in town. The rooms are large and very attractive and the bathrooms are very nice, with a deep tub and separate shower. There is also a small gym on site. I'll stay here again when visiting friends in Punta Gorda.
