Florida Vacation: Soak up the sun with beachfront accomodation

Upon your arrival at the DiamondHead Beach Resort and Spa, you’ll be greeted by a warm smile from the bellman. Take some time to sit and relax while your bags are being loaded, or go ahead and check in and let your luggage find you in your room.

As you check in, pay attention because as far as accomodations go, the DiamondHead is extremely high on amenities. You’ll be given a calendar of activities, an overview of where to eat and what spa services are available, and you’ll also receive a booklet of coupons to use in the hotel so you can save on meals and drinks at the resort’s eateries.

When you enter your clean, comfortable room and walk out onto the screened in balcony, you may be forced to immediately put on your swimsuit and some sunscreen and get out there to enjoy the warm Gulf waters.


You’re going to want to spend a good amount of time on the sugary white sands of the beaches of Fort Myers. If you’ve spent time shelling in Sanibel, you may be disappointed by the comparatively low amount of seashells in Fort Myers, but you will enjoy the softness of the sand underfoot. Work on your tan, catch some shade under an beach umbrella, build a sandcastle, go for a swim, watch the whelks make their way across the beach…but please don’t disturb them!


If you’re traveling with up to four people in your party, you’ll be quite comfortable in a spacious one bedroom/one bathroom Standard Suite, but for a treat, go for the upgrade to a Premium Suite. Premium Suites come with granite surfaces, upgrade furnishings, flatscreen TVs, kitchen cooktop and granite surfaces. Enjoy spectacular Gulf views from your private balcony, get wireless high speed Internet access in your room or by the pool.


There’s no shortage of things to do at this resort. Get pampered at Esterra Spa & Salon, take the kids to R.A.Y.S for arts and crafts, go for a swim in the heated pool! There’s so much the DiamondHead offers in the way of amenities that you will have a hard time making a dent in the list which includes:

  • Water sport rentals

  • Fitness Center
  • Two outdoor whirlpool spas
