Post I need a nice resort hotel-florida's west coast

We're looking for a nice beachfront resort near Ft. Myers-Marco Island area in March. Anyone ever been to any hotels in that area? I was hoping some Fla. residents could give me some local information. Thanks.

Can't go wrong at a Ritz-Carlton.

Stayed at the Marco Island Hilton, very nice place. A little pricey but it was worth it.
Just dont use the mini bar!!

Toolman,when will you be down there? We will be at Marco March 21-30. Are you taking your boat? We go every year and take the boat it's a great time, it would be great to meet up with some people down there. If your staying for any amount of time you may want to look in to renting a house, most are on canals and almost all have pools, the house we rent even has a boat hoist!. The prices range from 1200.00 to 2000.00 per week not bad considering a decent hotel is 100.00 to 200.00 per night. If you choose to go that route here are some phone numbers; Re-max marco island 941-394-8118 or centry 21 800-255-9487.
Marco is a great place, we have been taking our boat down for the past 3 years and have a blast.
Maybe we'll see you there.

Ya there is the Lani Kahi (sp) on Sanabel Island and the other place up the street that is MUCH nicer but I can not remember the name. Oh ya if you see a dude passed out face down in the sand just prop me, I mean him up and make sure I, I mean he, does not eat to much sand. You know how long it takes to get that sand out of your ears, hair, and butt crack!!!!

Put your best foot forward!

About 6 years ago we went to Sanibel Island and stayed at the Santibel Island Resort and Spa. It is not on the beach but If I remember it was quite a nice place.

Upsacale: Pink Shell Beach resort on Fort Myers Beach; Diamond Head Beach resort on FMB; South Seas Plantation on Captiva Island; Hoilday Inn resort on Sanibel Island. Actually, South Seas owns a couple of resorts on Captiva, Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach. If you call them first, you might save yourself some legwork. [url][url]

Really Upscale (i.e. $600+/nite) Ritz Carlton in Naples, Registry Resort in Naples.

LaniKai is also on Fort Myers Beach. The Lani Kai is geared a bit more toward Spring Break.

There is also a Hampton Inn family resort in the center of town on FMB.

All of these are in area code 941. Sorry, I don't have the phone #'s

If money is no object, South Seas Resort on Captiva Island is AAA. If money is a concern, a more afordable alternative on Captiva is "Tween Waters" resort.(This is not a spelling error) Tween Waters also owns smaller resorts on Sanibel Island. Sorry dont have the phone number available.
