It was my second staying at BWPBR in Fort Myers Beach; this time with my 2 teenage daughters. The hotel maintains its quality. The location is unbeatable and the rest is up to the weather and your initiative. I have expected, however, that at the end of August the prices would have been more reasonable. 4 nights for $1,105.56 - was simply too steep for the post-vacation period. Additionally "Red Tide" had affected many surrounding beaches and most of the tourists were not comfortable with swimming in the waters full of dead fish. This very problem has not been addressed properly when making reservations for staying at the hotel. What helped us, was the TRIPADVISOR website and opinions of tourists staying at Fort Myers Beach hotels in June, July & August 2018.
The staff of the hotel was very professional on a daily basis and the hotel was clean and well maintained. I rate this hotel as a 3/4 star hotel and consequently expect that this would be reflected in their prices. There are many hotels (4 & 5 Star) on Florida's West Coast (including the Keys) with far better deals during the second part of August. It would be wise for BWPBR to re-think that price positioning for post-vacation period. Other than that - just pleasant memories. less

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. TripAdvisor is a great tool for us as well and we encourage our guest to use it when traveling anywhere. Hopefully the water improves, and it has, the water clarity is better, no smell, and no dead fish. We hope to see you again and thank you for staying with us.
