Open since 1953, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina woos guests with its unobstructed ocean views, complimentary beach amenities and friendly staff. But the star attraction of this property is its location: Spread out across 12 acres in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, the resort boasts 1,500 feet of pristine white sand beach, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Matanzas Pass on the other. Plus, the resort sits less than a mile from Fort Myers Beach's Times Square shopping hub. For those looking to take advantage of Florida's year-round sunshine, Pink Shell offers a variety of on-site amenities, including three heated pools and a marina. When you're seeking cover from Florida's intense rays, head inside and indulge in a warm stone massage or a sugar scrub from the Aquagene Spa. A meal at one of the property's two restaurants is also a must. Once you're ready for a little R&R, retreat to one of the resort's 211 accommodations. Each room and villa features a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker, a kitchenette or kitchen and an enclosed lanai. Note: Pink Shell charges a $37 daily resort fee that covers in-room Wi-Fi access, kayak and paddleboard rentals and Starbucks coffee in the lobby every day.

Critic Reviews



For a family-oriented stay, book the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, which recently widened its beach and is currently expanding its marina. New onsite restaurant Jack's serves a daily breakfast buffet with Gulf of Mexico views.



Located on 12 acres on the Gulf of Mexico, this expansive resort offers rooms in three high-rise buildings, each with a swimming pool. The main pool has a fun nautical theme with a waterfall feature.


Bowditch Point Park nature preserve is just next door, and the city's own bustling Times Square is a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Breakfast is free, and the beach restaurant and bar are major highlights as well.
