"hated service ftom JE Hotels! love Lovers key."
Once my husband and I went into the condo it haf a strange smell. Then we noticed the glass table had crusty food on it and the sliding glass doors had spills on them and they were dirty to the point looking out to our amazing view was difficult. The microwave was very dirty and has spills inside. The refrigerator door handle was very dirty. Our sheets […] on the bed looked used and the pillows had a horrible stench. We called to ask for an iron and ironing which is part of the amenities and were told they could not provide one until the next day! We complained about the dirty room and sheets and were told that they would take care of it next day. Next day we went out and came back hoping our complaints had been handled but nothing was done at all. I ended up getting sick and my husband was very uncomfortable so we rented a condo from the hotel Lovers key itself and were very please. I told the hotel that they need to get rid of JE Hotels and take up all the rooms and service. I disliked their service and will never again use them! But I will rent from the hotel itself. The service and room were spectacular! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would Go Again!"
Very very nice place. All seemed in order & maintained. Great location. Walk to Lovers Key State Park beach in 5min. Wonderful restaurant on property called Flippers. Fabulous bay view room...watched the dolphins & manatees from the balcony. Unit was updated. Private large balcony. Jacuzzi tub. Resort room..1 bedrm. The King bed in this unit was not […] comfy, biggest complaint. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not so great"
I have stayed in this area a few other times, but never at the Resort. The Resort itself is nice, pretty pool and nice restaurant on the water. However, the room was not up to par. There was 1 room with a king size bed and then a sofa sleeper. The mattress on that was super thin. If I'm paying to have 4 people sleep there- they should have a nice, comfortable […] place to sleep. The towels were paper thin and the kitchen seemed a bit scuzzy for my liking. Basically, this condo needs some major updating and replacement of necessary things. I would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lost Our Desire"
Boy, were WE surprised! After really looking forward to our last night in Ft. Myers being special, we were disappointed but made the most of the time. Our room was bare-bones furnished. Two flat pillows topped the bed! Sparse furnishings included two second-generation TV's with minimal and marginal cable reception. View was good over the causeway from […] the 6th Floor. Given our expectations and the way the room was advertised, we expected more. Only ONE restaurant convenient to the hotel - Flippers - which did have good food and drinks; but, really? Only one place to which you're able to walk for a meal? Lovers Key State Park is nearby and is a beautiful attraction. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
front desk staff would not even give us beach towels since we booked through expedia (by the way I did not realize that I booked with someone that did not know about the hotel. I asked for beach front and this place had no beach. The pool was in the shade until noon and the front desk staff were rude.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very happy with the whole experience, I would go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nobody cleaned our room,made our beds or replenished any toiletries for the entire 4 days,we paid over 800 dollars for our anniversary to stay in a unkept room.I wood expect some sort of refund,other than that the resort was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Poor management set-up"
I had to go to a different hotel to check in. No one told me that the hotel is owned by 2 different companies and one of them is not on-site. No services from JE Vacations at the hotel. Very annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business trip with some pleasure."
We had a convention and my wife and I chose to stay at Lover's Key to couple the business event with a weekend getaway. It was a wise decision. The proximity to Bonita Springs, Fort Myers Beach, Barefoot Beach, shopping and dining was perfect. The views over the bay were outstanding. The rooms are a little dated, but still offer the necessary ameni […] ties. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We were very pleasantly surprised at the accommodations of our recent stay. A wonderful view of the water and many shops, places to eat and spend time very close by. The resort was very clean and all staff we came in contact with were extremely polite and friendly.

"Great family vacation spot!"
Our condo was just as described with a beautiful view of the ocean. Extremely quiet building, not overcrowded. We will definitely stay there again the next time go!Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovers Key Resort has a breathtaking view of the water as long as you ask for the bay side. We were in room 505 with a beautiful view. Very centrally located with a trolley to take you up and down Ft. Myers Beach. The waterfront hotel has an outdoor restaurant and a pool. You are also close to Bonita Springs and not too far from Naples. I would highly […] recommend this hotel. We had a blast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There was no hot water at 9:00 pm in our room after returning from being outside all day. Not a pleasant surprise!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible time, laid back & thoroughly enjoyable."
Great time. Great views. Flipper's by the bay bar & grill was outstanding! Anyone complaining about this place is not a seasoned traveler. Our room was not managed by the group located in the hotel lobby but rather an outside source. We picked up our key at an outside location and no one bothered us after that. Doc's Beach House just south down Hickory […] Blvd in Bonita Springs is the place to be if you want to lay out on the beach with a cold beer in your hand! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It's a nice place. The pool and hot tub had a problem but were fixed. One thing I didn't like is that there aren't any washer and dryers in the rooms. That would help out a lot. Also it doesn't have it's own beach. The first beach you can go to is across the street (the park for $2.00) or across the bridge.Genuine Expedia guest review
WiFi was fast, View was great. Towel change daily was great. Need to update the TV's, replace the used and worn frying pan, and provide larger cerial bowls. Doorway light bulb needs replacing, and we had to replace one of the bulbs in the living room. A spare bulb was provided at our request, but it was smaller wattage. Shower head needs to be cleaned […] or replaced. All that said, we reserved again next year. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I stayed here on vacation for 10 days. It was a wonderful location; nice and quiet with a beautiful view of the bay. We loved walking over to Lover's Key State Park to start each day - the beach there is great! Rooms were well provisioned and comfortable, although the TV was a bit small for the room (we had a one bedroom and had to move […] dining chairs in front of the TV to see). This was not a big deal since we do not watch much TV plus there is so much to do and see nearby. Would definitely recommend Lover's Key Resort! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much better option than a hotel"
Great value vs. a hotel room at the very end of Fort Myers Beach. Very quiet and peaceful location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top of the World!"
We were in room 702 which faced the South/East; the 1 bedroom included a monster size balcony and a great view of the river system below. The hotel sits on the edge of Lovers Key Park so there are no other buildings to block the view facing to the East and South. There is an abundance of wildlife from the osprey soaring at balcony level to common sights […] of manatee, dolphin and even eagle rays jumping into the air. Nice pool and hot tub, plenty of parking and a restaurant next door. Room key and check in is at another hotel (flamingo) down the road about 2 miles, George will hook you up!

Great place to vacation will go back next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and tidy. Bed was a little spongy. Pool was nice, and the place was very quiet except for one night when the guests direcly below us got into a marital dispute...guess that could happen anywhere. The views are outstanding, with daily visits by dolphins and manatees. Forgot to pack a drawer full of clothing, but the Flamingo Inn manager […] returned them via US Mail within just a few days. Overall, had a great time and enjoyed the room. One suggestion would be to have a couple of beach chairs and an umbrella on site for guest use. We flew in and didn't have a thing to use at the beach.

"Awesome view, peaceful and quiet surroundings"
Loved this place-the staff was friendly and helpful. The view from the room was awesome and the entire surrounding area is quiet and beautiful. The room was very comfortable, the balcony was HUGE! Only issue was the sliding glass door blinds were destroyed and would not close- this was a problem for those sleeping on the sofa bed in the morning-the […] sunlight was blinding! Overall, the rest of the hotel was well maintained, so that kind of helped the rating out regardless. Would definitely stay here again! Can't beat the view for the price. Fishing right off the beach in back, plenty of parking, and close to Sanibel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight at Lover's Key"
This was my third trip to Lover's Key Resort, previously we had booked through the hotel directly. Since we had stayed there previously we had an expectation of the room. While the views were (as always) absolutely gorgeous, the condition of the room was terrible. The carpet had multiple stains, there were rips in the couch, the TV in the bedroom did […] not work, paint was peeling off the door to the bathroom, the interior door in the bathroom stuck, towels were falling apart, and many other issues. The biggest problem was that the toilet was broken and kept running. I called to have it fixed and while we were out enjoying the State Park someone came in to fix it, only the issue continued. In addition, we were not provided the code to enter the property after 11 PM, which we found out from another guest. If we had come home late we would have been locked out! If we had been staying there longer than one night at the end of our vacation I would have cancelled the rest of the time there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very nice time at this resort, its a pretty place with a beautiful view of Estero Bay where you often see Dolphin and Manatee. They have a great pool area on the water. Flippers restaurant next door had great food as well as friendly staff. We really enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
This a nice location. To bad we could have the city have the water running. I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One of the most romantic places to stay."
I was perfect as always. I have stayed there in the past and is always a wonderful experience, even when it rains. I am planning on coming back again already.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"great accomodations, great place!"
Loved the hotel, room, balcony view and the complete resort as a whole. So sorry I could only stay for a day. Curious to know what the rate per day would be next year, off season in June. I am getting married June 15, 2013 and might consider coming back depending on cost. thanks again for a great experience MichaelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what was advertised"
Expedia said there would be continental breakfast and there was not. You can not sing in at the hotel, you have to go 2 miles down the road to another hotel to check in. The view was very nice, the room and hotel were very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic views and location"
The location of this hotel is excellent. Although the beach outside is very small and not suitable for sitting out the hotel is only some 400 yds from the north entrance to Lovers Key Park with lovely white sand beaches and nature trails. On our 2nd visit a group of 6 manatee came to within a few feet of us and we spent some 20 minutes watching them […] on our own. Views over the bay from our apartment could not be better with pelicans, terns and dolphins feeding in the bay below us. The apartment itself was large with good facilities, but let itself down for several minor issues which for very little money and time would give the complete wow factor. There were vanes missing on the vertical blinds, a hinge on the tv cabinet was disconnected and the cabinet badly positioned for viewing the tv, the cutlery should be re-stocked (2 knives only) and there was only 2 pillow cases for 4 pillows etc. Evenso, I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would re-visit.

"Extremely Nice apartments"
07/27/14 sailboi1 Punta Gorda, Florida
We spent two nights at Lovers Key Resort, a small condominium hotel. The rate was extremely reasonable, and while not really beachfront, access to Lovers Key State Park Beach is just across the road. Our room was a very well equipped one bedroom apartment, with a completely furnished kitchen. That said, spring for the extra cost and get a room above the 4th floor. Our only disappointment is that we did not do that and had a lovely second floor view of the parking lot (we could see a little bit of bayside water). I could not quite rate it a 5 because other than Flipper's Restaurant, everything else (including the main park entrance) was about a 2 mile drive.
"Wonderful Staff & Resort Property"
07/25/14 Tracy K Brooksville, Florida
This is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay! It's in a key spot where you can view beautiful nature or for a short drive visit the surrounding towns. The views are awesome from the 11th floor. We enjoyed our 1st stay there so much that we just booked our next stay. Kristi is a doll and made the reservation process flawless. She was friendly and bubbly, even though I asked her a ton of questions. The room was so much nicer than what we expected. You definitely won't be disappointed!
Made my reservations on line got here and was greeted by Kristi and from the get go we knew we were going to be happy with this place.. Kristi is super friendly and helpful ... As soon as we got to our room kids loved it its perfect for a family of 4 ... Loved it so much and its such a great deal we extended our stay and extra day... Best deal in town great pool great room great views ... My daughter even saw dolphins looking out on the bay... Added bonus... Will be coming back a must definitely... A new Reyes FAM tradition ....

The Resort was absolutely wonderful. The view was fabulous from our room. The condo was spotless and had a great decor along with the gorgeous view. The bathroom was amazing! Flippers restaurant was excellent! We had a relaxing time. I can't wait to go back again.
"Awesome views and very helpful management"
07/17/14 TheLostTourist Key West, Florida
Peaceful, relaxing stay for our anniversary. Resort is a condo hotel, with each unit individually owned and 8 units per floor. Our first night was in a room on the 8th floor with a large balcony overlooking the bay with a beautiful sunrise, saw several dolphins and with low tide, an exposed sandbar attracted many wading birds. A bottle of chilled champagne was waiting for us, along with a card wishing us a wonderful anniversary - nice touch. Unit has a small kitchen, main area with dining table, couch and TV, nice size bedroom with comfortable king size bed and bathroom (combo shower and jetted tub). Very clean, basic unit but looks like all original appliances and TVs, could use a refresh. On the afternoon of the 2nd day, some rowdy guests checked into several rooms on our floor. Instead of waiting to see how loud they might get later, we inquired at the front desk to see if another room was available. (On plus side, we only heard them when they were in hallway going between their rooms, didn't hear them when they were in their units - walls seem solid and soundproof). Staff was great and not only moved us to another room, they upgraded us to the 11th floor. This unit is the same size but facing the other direction, to the Gulf. It was a cloudy evening but my guess is that it has a gorgeous sunset view. This unit is more recently renovated with granite countertops, a modern shower and larger TVs. Our room rate included breakfast at Flippers, a cute open-air restaurant next to the resort. Breakfast was delicious - I had eggs and breakfast potatoes, husband had pancakes. Our dinner the first night was also good - coconut shrimp (4 large shrimp with mango salsa) and blackened grouper sandwich. Nice size pool and hot tub added to our relaxing stay. Beware the lowered speed if you take a right out of the resort and go over the bridge towards Fort Myers Beach. Very small sign for dropping speed limit down to 25 going over the bridge. There was a sheriff checking speeds on the other side of the bridge. Drop in speed limit is marked much more clearly coming from the north, heading south. Speed limits seem to drop a lot on the bridges in area, so be careful!
"Fantastic View, peaceful location right on Lovers Key Reserve"
07/16/14 Pat G Bristol, United Kingdom
We had the best holiday ever. Beautiful condo with amazing views over the bay. The kitchen was fully equipped and the bed comfy. Downstairs there was a room where you could use the WiFi. The outdoor swimming pool was good and so were the barbecues. What I loved the most was that you had direct access to the beach and you could watch the sunsets from your balcony. I can't wait to visit again. We stayed here in 2011 but due to health problems were unable to travel for the last couple of years. We are coming to Fort Myers this year and we are hoping to book here again.
"Scenic, refreshing & clean"
07/16/14 floridianbutz South Florida
Great spot for a long weekend as long as you don't want a resort right on the beach. Spectacular views from every window; refreshing pool with waterfall is like a tropical paradise; loved the convenience & again, scenic, dining at Flippers for breakfast & lunch. Saw dolphins swimming in the bay. Staff was friendly & rooms are spacious, comfortable, & clean. Price was reasonable too, we had a Florida residents rate. We were on 6th floor this trip & 9th floor previously. Like I said fabulous views from anywhere!
07/13/14 Alan F Sebring, Florida
We usually try to stay at bungalow, cottage type places, but once in a while we go for a little more luxury. Lovers Key Resort did not disappoint. The service was great and the room was more than we expected for the price. We had a 2 room suite with a kitchen and hot tub for about the same price as what most of the other hotels were asking for a single room. With the Florida resident discount they offered, it was quite reasonable. We opted for an upper floor room for a few dollars more and the view was spectacular from from our balcony. The hotel is about 20 feet from the inlet water on one side and there is a Gulf view on the other. We were lucky enough to have a view of both. We watched the lightning from the usual summer storms on the horizon and dolphins swimming in the channel in front of our room. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Flippers, the restaurant that is on the property is excellent also. I will review that under restaurants. .
07/06/14 SusanS1 Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Stayed for 4th of July weekend. Have a great time. We had two rooms, both overlooking the water. 12th floor was perfect for watching the fireworks. You really don't have to leave the resort. Everything is there. What really made our stay though we're the staff, both in the Hotel (Kristi was so accommodating and very professional) and the restaurant. The entire staff at the Restaurant (Flippers) were so much fun and just made you feel like you belong. Chris, Ray, Jay and Jono thanks for the awesome service and special thanks for the chef. We ate there every night and the food was spectacular. We will be back.
"Mostly excellent except for room service"
07/04/14 Gabby K Boca Raton, Florida
Beautiful resort, love the amenities and the food/drink at Flippers were great. Only complaint is the woman who delivered our complimentary breakfast was incredibly rude and unprofessional. The rest of the staff (front desk, etc.) were very friendly and hospitable unfortunately that was not the case with the staff delivering room service.
