Right this is plan F I think as we can't seem to find what we want for next years holiday? We were going to book Ft L but struggling to find an hotel in our budget with good reviews or no resort fee's mad. Now been looking at the Gulf coast in either Ft Myers or around Sarasota area. Seems better choice of hotels and villa's around Ft Myers (+Cape Coral) are very good prices. Been to Clearwater for a day while in Orlando but never stayed on the gulf coast or in Ft L so looking for some advice? We want a nice safe place where you can do a bit of shopping and plenty of places to eat, don't mind a short drive but not like an hour each way for dinner. Will be two adults and one teen, like to doss about during the day and then have a look around during the late afternoon early evening. Will be travelling next July so need to be on the coast for the breeze. Anyone stayed at any of the locations recently? Cheers.
