Thank you for hanging out with me! From day to day you never know what life will throw at you. And it will often be this way in my blog as well :) But lest RUN WILD and LIVE FREE in this amazing adventure together!
I will try my best to have very few negative reviews. But let's be real. We need to share all our experiences so that we can make educated decisions right? And make the most of the money we are choosing to spend with companies.
I first fell in love with Florida when I was in high school and my parents took me to Ft. Myers Beach. The memories there are so amazing. We would always stay at a fun little location called The Lighthouse Resort. They had a waterfall pool, wonderful courtyard and the rooms all over looked the pool. It was heaven.
So I decided I wanted to share this experience with my husband for the extra night that we had on a recent trip to Florida.
This location is no longer as I remember it. And I know my parents would not have stayed here year after year if it was in this condition then...
Furniture dirty, having to close blinds with a magnet, rusted shower rod holder, gap in tiles, soft spot that feels like you may fall through it at the back door, lawn chairs in disarray and a pool that is freezing that is said to be heated.
We did go talk calmly and nicely to the front desk staff and they didn't even care. There was no attempt to make things right (offer refund or a different room) and they even tried to blame this on the hurricane a couple years ago...yeah NO! Lol.
I personally own a condo in the panhandle of Florida and I always want my customers to tell me if something is wrong with their stay in our condo so I can make it right. So we tried to do the same in this situation. And there was no attempt to make anything right. I am glad it is only one night!
I did email the manager with our concerns. He did reply, with what I felt was many excuses vs. solutions. He did say he was going to refund our night stay. We are now about 5 days post that email and I have not received my refund as of yet. I personally would not advise to stay here.
The good spot of this location for us was the meal we had at the Tiki Bar on site. The staff there was wonderful and the food was great.
But if you are going to the area, please seek out a different location to stay!
