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!

    Wonderful Spa!

    Well appointed resort with wonderful spa. Many amenities including the Aquagene Spa where I was able to get a massage and facial. Spa staff were professional, offered standard services, and the spa itself looked fairly new. Alexis was wonderful!

    Request a quiet and bug free room

    The grounds and buildings are well maintained. Our 2 BR unit was nice, fair ocean view. The beach is lovely, chairs and umbrellas are great. The drink buggy that delivers drinks is great. Breakfast, at Jack's, has something for everyone: omelets, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, breakfast burritos, pancakes, waffles, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruits, milks and juices. It is however VERY noisy. Lots of little kids, some misbehaving; parents unwilling to do anything about it. Our 2 BR unit, 5203, was above the pool and bar. Horrible location. We got noise from the pool, and the bar. Music at the bar was very loud. They show movies on Wednesday night and we had to hear it for several hours. We also got the food smells from the bar. Tiny bugs in the kitchen. Put a sign for housekeeping and nothing was done. The ladies that wait tables and seat you at the bar are very unfriendly. They have a scowl on their faces. Service is abysmal. We had to wave our arms to get served or refills. I would not go back unless I was assured a room away from the noise and smells

    So many opportunities for fun!

    We came with or family and had a great time relaxing for several days. The pools are excellent, and there are options for every age. We thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic breakfast each day, and there are plenty of other dining options close by. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The real highlight for my wife and I was the back bay kayak nature tour with Ranger Rob. He is very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and the ecosystem, we were having a blast seeing the beautiful scenery and spotting a number of different animals. Rob was great fun to talk to and we felt very comfortable. The next time we come back, we will definitely sign up for more activities with Ranger Rob!

    Beautiful resort on the beach.

    Staff was wonderful. Place was clean and beautiful. Lots of amenities. Good food. Great kayak tour with Ranger Rob (not included with resort fee). Located 1 mile from center of town. We walked or took an Uber or Lyft. We had a beach/pool view.
