There is poor customer service here. Stay away. The pool shuts down, early the bathrooms are outdated, and there is mouse poop in the women's bathroom that has been there during my whole stay there. The site's power are a 30/50 amp but none of them work correctly. The sites are small, and there are very narrow roads. They do not have any music playing at the pool. The activity hall is locked and residents and guest do not have access to it. They neglect to give you the codes to the bathroom. They require a color band to access the pool area but again neglect to give you a band. Which in theory you are not able to be in the pool area. They say they offer Wi-Fi; it never works and they encourage you to buy TengoInternet. I watched the so called manager raise his voice to residents. If you have mail go here, good luck. There is always someone else's mail in your mailbox, which questions am I getting all of my mail? Cable is also included but at many sites the cable boxes are not working, so cable wires run across the roads on the pavement. On a good note the laundry room was good. Terrible place to stay. Then they over charge you for your electricity. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Some sites are good and others are crappy. We got a crappy one. The trailer next to us looked abandoned. A real eyesore (B-14). The picnic table at our site was broken. Another one was brought to us upon our request, but the broken one remained. The lot was dirt/gravel, mostly dirt. Rigs are packed in like sardines. The only good thing I can say is that the park is close to the causeway to Sanibel and to many restaurants, grocery stores, and other shopping areas. We arrived after hours and did not receive a welcome packet with any park information. Had to knock on our neighbors door to find out how to access Wi-Fi and find out where the laundry was. Not impressed with this place in the least. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Some may find this "resort" to their liking, but we found it constraining and with "tight" spacing between units. Sites were grass. Add to this that many of the large Class A rigs were in their sites "backwards," leading to a lack of privacy in many sites. Someone else mentioned the laundry; suffice it to say that an advanced degree would be helpful to figure out the "system" they have to pay for the laundry. We decided to take our laundry with us rather than tackle their system. Our site, and plenty of others, had no concrete pad beside our door, just some shell stone like material. For the price we expected much more than this, but at the time we reserved, nothing else was available. This part of Florida is just mobbed this time of year with impatient and inconsiderate drivers everywhere, plus long stop and go lines to get to the barrier islands, even on weekdays. During our stay a caravan of very large Class A's arrived to stay. We watched one wipe out a neighbor's palm tree trying to turn into a site. These rigs seemed too large to fit into the allotted spaces in the park, plus they were often in backwards. On a possible future visit, we'd likely try somewhere else instead of this place; especially, given the price of admission. Anyone who does stay should try out Marko's Diner for a great breakfast. It is next door to the campground We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Here's an RV park with a great location (near the beach, restaurants, shopping, entertainment). The rates are very reasonable, given the fine location. Such potential, yet sadly, this RV park doesn't come close to being all it can be. The roads in the park are narrow, turns are tight, and spaces are narrow. Yet, there are no employees that will guide you to your space! The park is managed by a young lad with a "can't do" attitude. He can be rather nasty. If I were in the service industry and treated customers the way I was treated by the manager, I'd be fired on the spot! Shame on Encore for tolerating this style of customer relations! The washers and dryers only take "smart cards"; no cash. You need to get a smart card from the office. If you check in after the office has closed for the day (an early 4 p.m. in season) and you want to do laundry, you're out of luck! Loading money into the card (from your credit card) is a cumbersome process, and can only be done in monetary increments that ensure after you do your laundry there will be money left over on the card, and you can't get it refunded. If you have a problem loading money into the card during the weekend, you're out of luck again. Customer service for the washer/dryer smart card system is only available Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Water in two of the showers in the Ladies room doesn't drain. Yuck! A couple of people told me this problem was reported months ago! There is no onsite convenience store. If you need some common supplies, you have to go shopping offsite. The pool closes at dusk. (In the winter, that's 6 p.m. in Fort Myers.) It would have been nice to be able to take a dip until 9 p.m. as we can do at many other RV parks.) The pool and spa are nice, but the spa water temperature was way below normal...Brrr! WiFi only reaches the activity room, exercise room and the pool at the very front of the park, and the speed is very slow. Cable TV is provided to each site at no additional cost. It's an old system (no HD), but on the plus side, a cable box is not required. Trash is picked up from each site daily, and the park is kept clean. All in all, it's hard for this old-style RV park to justify using the word "resort" in its name. Unless all other RV parks in the area are full, you'd be wise to pass on the Fort Myers Beach RV Resort and stay somewhere else. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful landscaping yet too many trees for my taste, Site was grassy and we enjoyed the facilities, clean fitness center with clean pool and hot tub. Not many people here in Sept but I hear this place fills up in winter. I would return here. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We visited the Fort Myers Beach RV Resort (ENCORE) as a stop over from the Florida Keys. RV sites are really "tight" in some spots, Wi-Fi was down, office was chaos as several folks were checking in to find out their reservations were lost. Spoke with several folks who have been coming there for years who really like it. We found the traffic terrible getting on and off the island with limited paid parking. Florida has much better stops so I would re command a "pass" on this park. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is VERY clean with VERY friendly people. We were here 2 years ago and glad we tried it again. We enjoyed all the activities and the manager is very accommodating. She helped move us to a site that worked best for our satellite. Great Job on making our stay perfect. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very tight quarters, only one picnic table for every two sites, our neighbor already had their grill set up on the middle of it. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

First of all this is not a park for big rigs although they do get them in. There is no space between your neighbor and yourself. The sites are grass and some gravel. We had problems with ants in our coach and wasps outside. Picnic tables are old wood they are not painted which brought in wasps to nest. Grounds keepers are wonderful and so helpful, but how can you make things nice when this place doesn't put money into it. Some of the light poles outside are burnt out and not fixed. They really have a cat problem here, especially feral cats. Some people let their own cats run free. You will never see birds or any wildlife here; too many cats. Although I did see a cat kill a squirrel here. You put your garbage out and ten minutes later cats are in it. We took our complaints about the ants, wasps, and cats to the office. They did not hire any professionals to spray for the ants. We decided to leave. We paid for two months and we were only here one month. We would of left earlier but it is hard to find a place in this prime time in Fort Myers area. Their policy at the front desk is: you donated your money because you left early. That is not the case. We talked to the corporate office and were refunded some money. Would we stay again? No. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We moved here for a weekly special from the Encore park one mile away. The park staff was busy cleaning when we pulled in, they stopped everything to help us check in and get on site. Several trees at this one so if you like the shade you will love it here. So far very clean and friendly. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a destination RV park. May is definitely the off season. A few Park Models are occupied and the folks are friendly. The Park staff is helpful and friendly. The amenities are in good shape with restrooms and showers undergoing renovation. The laundry is good and it's cheap. When we arrived a staffer escorted us to site N2 and guided me into the site but got us stuck in soft sand next to the paved patio and utility posts. The staff shoveled and timbered and got us unstuck, backed out and moved to another site with firmer footing. All the sites are grass with concrete patios but in some places the sand shows through. Total hookups at each site with 50AMP and cable TV. These staff guys couldn't stop apologizing for getting us stuck. Interior roads are all paved but narrow. Utility box placement could be an issue in some sites. Comcast provides the Cable TV access here. The Park is close to everything you need. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked it so much we stayed for 5 nights instead of 1. Great warm, clean pool and spa. Very nice staff, clean facilities. We even broke down and played shuffleboard here- very nice courts. It is an older park, you're parked on grass with a concrete pad, but it's comfortable. Mature landscaping, old school feel with clean facilities and everything works. Close to lots of things (3.3 mi to Ft Myers beachfront)- we'd even make this a destination if we were in the area (we're traveling with 7 kids and they all enjoyed it too).

Small, older park with a good location. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping, and easy driving distance to anything you want in the Ft. Myers and Ft. Myers Beach area. The park itself is extremely cramped. We were put into a narrow site right next to a giant tree. Felt a sense of relief to actually get my rig out at the end of the week without damaging it or any of the utility boxes or other obstacles they have around. They certainly make use of every inch of space. The way the sites are set up, your door will look out onto the door of the rig next to you because it will be put in the opposite direction. Don't go there if you want any privacy. The park claims to have Wi-Fi but actually you have to pay extra for it with Tengo, $15/week. Didn't have any trouble with Tengo but dislike the practice of add-on charges for something so commonly included at other parks. We probably won't stay there again.

I like this park. It is an old park designed for RVs from 10 - 20 years ago, so we need a lot of guidance getting in and out with our rig. If we had a larger rig (40ft motorhome) I think we would go elsewhere. The bigger problem is WiFi. They have been duped into the lie from TengoInternet, that they can provide WiFi for the park, won't have to worry about support, it won't be their problem, it will be cheaper, etc., etc. But the fact is: it is their problem because the WiFi in this park is terrible! That is a reflection on this park. In the future we will ask who provides the WiFi. If it is Tengo, we will go elsewhere. This park has cable TV. They could provide WiFi feeding through the cable TV system. Advertise that and have 98% occupancy. It would cost a buck or two but would work out in the long run. I hope Encore sees this review. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
