Top 5 Things To Do On Fort Myers Beach

#5 Shelling

Fort Myers Beach Shelling

Fort Myers Beach is a shelling heaven! Thanks to the island’s geography and the gentle Gulf waves, seashells of all shapes and sizes are washed up on the beaches. They arrive daily, mostly fully intact and ready for you to take home as souvenirs. Some shells you might come across include; fighting conchs, horse conchs, corkscrew-shaped augers, calico scallops, starfish, banded tulips, sand dollars and many many more.  Here is a great story from Pam of iLoveShelling.com about her shelling experience on the beach behind GullWing Beach Resort and Pointe Estero Beach Resort. All you have to do is grab a shell bag, hit the beach and keep your eyes on the sand!

DiamondHead Beach Resort Guest Reviews

Amazing Experience
Our family comes to the beach several times a year and we always stay at Diamond head. The staff is superb and atmosphere is so relaxing. We had dinner with colleagues at Chloes and loved it! Everyone left full and extremely satisfied! Lots of activities for the kids and walking distance to Fort Myers beach Time square and the pier! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Great all around hotel
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Pointe Estero Resort for a romantic weekend, and it was just that. The rooms were super clean and updated. The bed was very comfortable and everything was well maintained. The resort itself was actually on the beach and just a short walk from the water. We had a partial gulf/beach view and it was perfect. We had a beautiful wrap around balcony to watch the sunset from. The staff at the front desk was extremely knowledgeable about dining and other events in the area. Definitely recommend this resort and will certainly be back!

Great place with great waitress at pool and poolside bar
Stay at DiamondHead several times a year on Ft. Myers Beach. The resort is wonderful, right on the beach with great accomodations and great service. The pool area is fantastic and Cabana’s (the pool bar and grill) is great. The food is outstanding and always fresh. Reasonably priced as well. Janet, our waitress all week was absolutely wonderful. Very attentive and always made sure our glasses were always full. She anticipated our needs very well. We go to DiamondHead as a staycation since we live nearby, and every time we have had Janet as our waitress she has been wonderful. Kudo’s to DiamondHead for having such a friendly, fantastic server!!!! Can’t wait for our next visit!!!!

One of the Best Hotels in Fort Myers Beach
This Resort Hotel is one of the nicest we have stayed at on Fort Myers Beach. My family has vacationed here for over 25 years. The rooms, pool, beach, staff and accommodations are great. We plan to return our next trip to FMB.

Another wonderful trip to the beach
I stayed at the hotel a few years ago and was hoping the trip would live up to the same experience we had last time- and it did! The hotel is RIGHT on the beach (so that for those with small children, you can take your children to the bathroom in your room, it’s that convenient.) The pool is also right on the beach and it is a great place for everyone in the family to swim and relax. I enjoyed the fact that you can rent umbrellas and chairs and charge it to your room. The dining facilities – especially at the very casual and “beachy” Cabanas”- are great for kids and adults. The water in the Gulf is very calm so we had no problem with the little kids swimming. All in all, another wonderful trip to the beach at DiamondHead!

The fact that it went off seamlessly is a gift I treasure.

March 13th, 2013

Dear Ones,

I know you sent us the enclosed form to tell you about our stay at your facility but it didn’t seem there was enough room to enumerate all of the things you did so well.

From the moment my fiancé called you, you behaved in both professional and friendly manner. The fact that it went off seamlessly is a gift I treasure. I bought my dress and shoes on the 6th of December. In that short span, we booked cars, flights, flowers, and thankfully found you in our search.

From the time that we arrived until we left, we were treated so very well. The staff was amazing. The weather was iffy that day as we drove off to Captiva Island it began to rain. I thought where would they serve us with all this wind and rain? When we returned for our reception everything had been handled. They had moved everything inside and gave us a beautiful space that was warm and intimate. We ate to our heart’s content all of the lovely hor d’oeuvres. They were a tasty meal in themselves. We listened to some wonderful live piano music and were serenaded by the lovely pianist. We later moved into a dining room that was set beautifully and gave us and our guests a night to remember. More wonderful food. More excellent service. Time to enjoy ourselves and our guests.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and hope to spend our first anniversary with you.

Yours Truly,

Monty and Janet Sewell

We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful experience we have that memorable evening at DiamondHead.

August 7th, 2012

Dear Mr. Hopgood,

My Husband and I were married on Fort Myers Beach March 10th in front of DiamondHead, and then we came into your restaurant to The Terrace for dinner with our family, there were 14 of us. We are in our early 80’s so it was especially special. We want you to know that Johnny Michaud treated us royally from he beginning of the planning until the end of dinner. All of your wait staff could not have been more attentive to our needs. My husband and I have both been in business and we know how important it is to have people who work in your place of business to do so well. You can be proud of all of them who served us that evening and especially of Johnny who brought it all together so beautifully.
We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful experience we have that memorable evening at DiamondHead.

Our best to you and your continued success in business.

Sincerely,

Glenna Goodwin & Roger Rummel

a wonderful experience had during both the planning and execution of the wedding

November 9th, 2011

Dear Mr. Hopgood:

October 30 our daughter, Sara, was married on the beach at DiamondHead, and her reception was held on your terrace and in the Diamond Room. I am writing to tell you what a wonderful experience we had during both the planning and execution of the wedding.

From the first time we entered your resort, we felt a difference from other resorts in Ft. Myers and Naples. We had looked at several comparable area venues, some considerably pricier, but none with significantly better facilities nor with guest service nearly so impressive as we found at DiamondHead.

First, we want to compliment your Catering Manager, Josh. I am confident he is the primary reason our event was so perfect. He clearly evidenced a commitment to the guest first and foremost. He consistently worked to provide options that allowed us to offer a first-class wedding and reception at a budget-friendly price. The minister was excellent, but he had a different approach to the ceremony in some respects than Josh usually used. There was no resulting tension whatsoever. Josh went out of his way to accommodate the minister and to assure the event flowed smoothly. He is a true professional. We have recommended and will continue to recommend DiamondHead to others based on our experience with Josh.

There were, however, others who also made our event memorable. Marcel, the Banquet Manager, could not have been more helpful or more committed to service and guest satisfaction. The Diamond Room was lovely; the food was outstanding; and the service was impeccable. Numerous guests at the reception commented on the exceptional quality of the food and service. It was Marcel’s commitment to quality in every way that made the difference.

Also in food and beverage, Kathy, the restaurant manager was most helpful, kind, and accommodating, and the pool bar staff members went above and beyond to make guests feel welcome.

Equally kind and helpful were the Front Desk Manager, Sherrie, and her staff member, Vicki. They were always cheerful and helpful, even when we had question after question. They always treated us as if we were their top priority.

For the mother-of-the bride and the bride herself, hair is an important issue. We cannot say enough good things about Dusty and Sue. They were at work before 8 on the Sunday of the wedding, smiling, helpful, and offering baked goods and mimosas! What more could we ask for?

And last, but by no means least, were bellmen Randy and Steve. Randy was more than helpful in assuring the huge array of items we brought for the wedding were well cared for and delivered to our room in a timely manner. Steve went above and beyond on the day we were leaving. Our daughter had left a suitcase for us to ship to her cruise port hotel. Steve called UPS, and they indicated it had to be boxed. He told us not to worry about a thing because he would take care of it. When we arrived back at the bell stand, Steve had boxed the suitcase and fashioned a handle so that it was as easy as possible to work with. He even offered to take it to UPS for us if it would help.

My husband and I have discussed our experience at length. We do not know whether it is your training program or your hiring practices or a combination of the two that made our experience so wonderful, but we do know that we have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean, and we believe the total-staff commitment to service we experienced at DiamondHead is the best overall experience we have ever had.

Our thanks go to everyone at DiamondHead for making our daughter’s wedding and our five-day stay at your resort an absolutely perfect experience.

Mark and Trish Smith
