I assume you just vacationed in the last few months? What were the temps like? Where did you do most of your swimming? Were your site locations right on the beach? Lots of sand in the RV as a result?
The red coconut has 2 parts, one on the beach and one across the street. Both sides have mobile homes or some seasonal rv's that are there permanently. The beach side is nice however, if the wind kicks up a bit you may get the sand blowing up into your brakes and engine compartment, etc.
We were across the street, on the park side and not right on the beach. No sand issues there and you just have to walk across the street to go to the beach. There's a cross walk right in front of the park entrance, and cars must stop for pedestrians, so it's not a problem getting across.
The park is a bit more pricey and the sites are a bit tight, but it's location, location, location, your are on the main Fort Myers Beach strip, groceries, etc, are all mostly within walking distance. Don't know if you have ever been to Fort Myers Beach, but the traffic getting on and off the island can be backed up for miles, so yes, it's a bit tight and a bit more money but the location makes up for it.
We were there mid February 2011 to first part of March, just over 2 weeks, then we headed to the keys, then home. The weather was average 85 degrees and sunny except for one day of rain
Overall, we would go back to the red coconut for sure, hoping to go this coming winter again.
