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!

    Great views and excellent service

    The views were awesome. The service staff especially at the beach and pools were amazing and very attentive. Everything around the resort was super clean tidy, a lot of cleaning for COVID was occurring. Only reason I gave 4 stars is there were a few things dated in the room, and the sofa bed for a family was beyond uncomfortable.

    Nice resort overall. Friendly staff. Few issues need correcting!

    Upon arrival to the Pink shell resort, check in was easy and the front desk staff were friendly and professional. We rented a 2 bedroom suite in the main building. The room was very clean and spacious. During Covid 19 pandemic, many patrons were not wearing masks throughout the resort. There was no social distancing at the pool. We were planning to go Jet skiing and paddle boarding the following day. There was a tropical storm threat to the region. We were at the beach at 11;15 am, when a singular squall came in , the water sports concession completely shut down for the day! After the thunderstorm left in 1/2 an hour, the rest of the day was storm free and rain free, yet there was no free paddle boarding ( included in $39 daily hotel fee) and no jet skiing. A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT! On the day of check out, I went through my usual checking every draw and space, to make sure we didn't leave anything behind. To my AMAZEMENT!!! I found a Marijuana roach joint and a lighter in the main bedroom bedside end table.. My young child was in the room. I was HORRIFIED!! I immediately threw the lighter and joint in the garbage. Why was it there? Housekeeping needs to do a better job of checking the entire suite. Overall, aside from a few issues, the Pink Shell is a nice place to stay. Not particularly happy with the watersports concession .

    Great customer service

    We have a great week at Pink Shell. They took COVID very seriously and had great customer service. We ate a Jack's each morning for breakfast which was very good especially considering that it is a buffet. We received two free breakfasts each day with our reservation. We did not eat on the property in the evening except for one evening when we ordered room service which was pretty good. The drinks at the bar are rather expensive; however, they are very good. Each day, the workers bring out umbrellas and there was an employee serving drinks on the beach. We stayed in a one-bedroom villa which was very spacious and perfect for us. We enjoyed reading on the lanai during the hot afternoons. Lastly, I left my airpods in the room. I called immediately upon arriving to the airport and the Pink Shell security shipped them to me. What exceptional service! We'll definitely be back.

    Great for our family of 6

    Great location - the 2 bedroom beach villa was spacious (for our family of 6) - very clean. It could use maybe one more chair in the living area for the family to watch movies together. Beds were very comfy with nice linens and pillows (never woke up with a backache). Full size kitchen was great with all that you need (plates cups pots silverware...etc). 3 TV's and the A/C was always cold - never a hot moment in the room. The valet service was amazing as well as the front desk. All requests were responded to in minutes for things like extra blankets and towels. The hotel was clean through out with hand sanitizer stations everywhere. We felt very safe and plan to go back.
