My boyfriend and I stayed at the Islland Hideway for one night recently. We were drawn to the resort after purchasing a Groupon for the property and reading all the reviews. The Sunset suite surpassed our expectations and looked just as the pictures online. Rhonda was friendly and welcoming, even joining us for a mojito. We went kayaking in the...

This was my fifth time back to the Island Hideaway and it was even better than the last time (didn't think that would be possible)! The addition of the pool and spa was an absolutely wonderful surprise and treat! Not to mention all the upgrades to the property such as the stone pavers and landscaping. The whole package is absolutely...

My girlfriend and I spent four nights here over 4th of July weekend. We had a great time. The accomodations were fabulous. The room was luxurious. We were so close to everything that we biked on Ft. Myers beach almost everywhere. The beach was a short walk or you can just lay by the pool in the back. We had...

This was relaxing and fun. The kayak trips and bike rides to local restaurants were great and the Island Hideaway is beautiful. They have put so much thought into the place. Definately a trip to be repeated. Noneen O`Rafferty

My wife and I took advantage of a Groupon promotion for a one night getaway in nearby Fort Myers Beach. The accomodation was excellent, the pool was right outside our door, and the beach was a very easy walking distance down the street. Overall, this was an excellent place for the short getaway we desired. The only negative surprise was...

We stayed here after purchasing a groupon for the Island Hideaway. Everything about the stay was wonderful. Even though we only got to stay for one night, and checkout was at 10:00 AM, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Rhonda and Phil are very nice hosts. We enjoy being there because they are also very pet friendly and they both like Murphy. The main problem this year was that the pool/hot tub were not finished and people were working there during the day. Being confident that all will be finished next year we are looking forward to our next...

The Island Hideaway is very poor value, the rooms are poorly decorated, very dark and our apartment had what was it Rhonda called them "Ghost Ants" let me tell you folks they were on every kitchen work surface and this just gave one the impression that this place was not very hygienic. The beds were old and not comfortable, they...

this is my third time staying here and i don't think i'd ever stay anywhere else. Rhonda and Phil are the BEST! The rooms are absolutely gorgeous with everything extra that you could hope for (bikes, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc).
