Hotel overview

Make memories with us

Bring adventures to life at our Fort Myers Beach resort

Beginning with a single cottage in 1953, Pink Shell is now an expansive 12 acres.  We are surrounded by the Matanzas Pass on one side of our island and Gulf of Mexico on the other. Though it has been expanded, renovated and rebranded since the first beachfront property that sat on the sand, the Fort Myers, Florida resort continues to celebrate the memories that were once made on the sun-kissed beach while providing all the necessities for friends and families to make ones of their own.

Our Fort Myers Beach hotel is a Boykin Lodging Company offering studios, one- and two-bedroom accommodations, meeting facilities, a spa, full-service marina, fitness center, two restaurants and fun activities for the whole family.

Welcome to Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, where the only thing we overlook is the beach!

    My kids and grandkids stayed at this wonderful hotel. There's much to do especially for kids. Ranger Rob does a great job of educating everyone on Marine life and conservation in SW Florida. I highly recommend the nature walk and the dolphin kayak tour. Well done Ranger Rob!!

    you wouldn’t believe my experience at the aquagene spa

    I just have to write a review on Dawn from the spa at this hotel. No words can described how amazing she was. Great customer service, had a deep tissue and she really wasn’t afraid to use pressure and made sure I was conformable the whole time. She worked magic on the knots in my back. I feel like a new women. Thanks Dawn! You made my day!

    Beautiful resort, fantastic amenities, and great naturalist offerings!

    We have absolutely loved our stay at Pink Shell Resort. The beach is pristine and the view from our room is fabulous. We’ve enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well as paddle board / kayak use at the beach. The best part of our stay thus far has been our kayak trip with Ranger Rob, the resort’s naturalist. We kayaked with dolphins and learned so much about the local ecosystem. Highly recommended!

    Nice and relaxing

    We stayed two nights on this hotel on our roundtrip in Florida. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff was friendly, the room was spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet was good. There were two restaurants, with room for some improvement regarding choices, menus and atmosphere. One simple, but nice, with a small and simple menu, poolside, and another inside with a bit better menu. We tried both but found the atmosphere to be cosier poolside. The beach is nice and the service attentive. We appreciated this hotel very much and would gladly come back.

    Stayed at the Pink Shell many years ago when only beachfront cabins were available. Now the grandkids have joined us on a boat at the Marina. Having frequented many marinas as we live on a boat, it is without exception that this marina is extraordinary with emphasis on quality customer service. Craig and Dave are incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The amenities ....great water, electric, slips and showers cannot be beat. The proximity to Times Square via tram, a top 10 beach with the finest powder sand, nice restaurants and numerous parks make this the ideal family destination. Every resort employee couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful. Looking forward to returning annually. Kudos all around.
