FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla., Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina is proud to announce it has been named one of the top resorts in Florida in the 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards from Condé Nast Traveler.

Out of 35 hotels, the Fort Myers Beach destination was listed as number 18, outranking luxury brands such as Ritz-Carlton and Hyatt Regency. This is not the first year the non-chain hotel has received a top rank from Condé Nast readers, and it’s sure not to be the last based on the resort’s innovative offerings and breathtaking beachfront location.

“Being recognized by the readers of Condé Nast is a great honor for our resort,” said Senior VP of Operations Bill Waichulis. “Whether treating guests to a winter weekend getaway or long summer vacation, we take pride in providing first-class experiences across our rooms, marina, swimming pools and dining outlets. Being ranked on this list simply pushes us to continually improve our amenities and services.”

Boasting studio, one- and two-bedroom villas with guaranteed beach views, the resort’s accommodations offer a welcome retreat after a day of Florida fun. High-speed Wi-Fi and Google Chromecasts will keep visitors well-connected, and kitchens or kitchenettes will have them feeling right at home.

Pink Shell guests also have convenient access to rentals from Holiday Water Sports, providing WaveRunners, sailboats, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards to enhance any day at the beach. In between water activities, vacationers can dine on farm-to-table fare at Jack’s Farm to Fork or take advantage of poolside service from Bongo’s Bar & Grill.
