Dream it.

That moment when you open the door to your hotel room can make or break your vacation. At Sandpiper Gulf Resort, I walked inside and saw the blue water outside the back window, and I just knew this was the start of an excellent vacation.

The Sandpiper Hotel Fort Myers Beach

Situated on 515 feet of white sand beaches on Fort Myers Beach, the Sandpiper Gulf Resort is a smaller resort with a total of 63 suites.

This resort can be considered a no-frills hotel with two small pools, plenty of beach chairs, watersport rentals and a few communal BBQs. However, what it may lack in resort amenities, the hotel features in its rooms and its laid back vibe.

The Sandpiper Hotel Oceanview Suite

Sandpiper Hotel Suite Bedroom

The door to my suite opened to the bedroom. Here there was a king-size bed, lots of closet and wardrobe space and a flat-screen TV. Within the bedroom was the bathroom, which included a sink and a separate room for the toilet and bathtub.

There were plenty of free toiletry products at the Sandpiper Gulf Resort, which included these citrusy smelling bath products by Tarocco.

Suite Livingroom and Kitchen

Separated by a sliding door, the living room had a couch and coffee table. There was a second TV in the living room as well. The living room opened to a full kitchen with granite countertops, a full-size refrigerator, a stove, microwave and a table with chairs.

Sandpiper Gulf Resort Beach

My room was located in the second building, overlooking the adult pool with an incredible view of the beach. The beach is vast, and there are plenty of comfortable chairs and loungers available, all with umbrellas.

These beach chairs are not uncomfortable plastic chairs either. There is a bit of seaweed accumulated on the beach, but not to worry, it did not get in the way of a comfortable swim in the warm ocean water.

Each morning I made my way out to the beach for a walk to this fantastic view. There was little traffic on this end of the beach, and it felt like I had the whole beach to myself. See more reviews on the Sandpiper Gulf Resort.

    I wish you had included cost.

      I normally don’t include costs as I don’t sell travel and the costs change all the time. They really depend on when you are travelling to the region and what days you are staying there.
