Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Stunning scenery. Wonderful beach visit. Found free parking off a side street, and plenty of good eats within a short driving distance. While we were walking the shoreline the manatees paid us a visit and we also saw various birds that we’ve never encountered on other beaches near us. Great visit!

    Docs and Bonita Springs is a wonderful beach. Not too crowded, decent food right there on the beach, white sand and parasailing, paddle boards, Kayaks and Jet skis all right there for rental. People are generally very relaxed and friendly. The only down side is there is limited parking available ad during Spring Break traffic can be difficult.

    Great place to find lots of shells. We kayaked to the beach on a kayak from Island Breeze Kayaking. We went on Memorial Day; a non-holiday would have been better because we had to park way down the road from the launch site. Overall… I highly recommend this beach & Island Breeze Kayaking.

    These wonder gardens are just enough to have a satisfying experience with interesting and varied features. We five adults spent over an hour leisurely walking the gardens up to closing time and enjoyed watching a zookeeper put the parrots away. I'll never forget the largest peacock I've ever seen with his long beautifully spread-out plume. Then there was the submerged huge alligator snapping turtle that was truly frightening. The gift shop was nice, too, and I purchased a lovely cobalt blue glass butterfly as a souvenir. These gardens with so many plants, trees, birds and animals are perfect for adults and young children to capture attention, but to not overwhelm.

    We stopped by the Dog Beach park even though we didn't have any animals on our vacation. It was great to see all the dogs and people perusing the beach, especially after two long years of Covid. It was alot of fun.

    Went for the 4th of July celebration and it was awesome. Lots of families. Entertainment was great. Fireworks were spectacular. Small town feel with a big impact. The only issue I could see people were having was that their wasn't enough restrooms and the line was very long.

    One of the best dog friendly beach I went. It is beautiful beach and my dog loved there but there are no chairs to sit for older people or shower, bathrooms near by. When it is higher tide you have to walk and go around the bushes to get there.

    Farmer Mike’s Bonita Springs location provided an exceptional field trip for my sixth grade students; it was educational and fun, not to mention, the produce was delicious. A few of my students were even inspired and started gardens of their own. I would recommend an afternoon at the farm to any local teachers looking for a way to connect students with nature, or the world around them.

    My husband and I wandered through on a Friday afternoon for our first time, and were less than impressed. Prices were very high at some of the kitschy stores (ie with beach signs), and we weren't in the market for a 3k+ electric scooter from a Flea Market.

    Pretty empty of people shopping, we did see some folks eating at the south end of the market at one of the shops. There were maybe 3 or 4 other actual shoppers. We promptly departed; no reason to go back as there is nothing of interest to us here that we can't pick up at TJ's for less, and new. Not a great atmosphere; feels dumpy and sad. Sorry to say; we were looking forward to seeing what this was about!

    Well maintained trail along the Imperial River. The main trail is made up of crushed sea shells so, while it is flat, it would difficult for a wheelchair or stroller to navigate along the path. My 84 yr old father had no trouble walking it. It took us less than an hour for the whole trail which included stops along the way.

    Yes it gets very crowded. The vendors are pretty good. Fresh fruit and vegetables. You can get fresh bagels by out of New York bagels, Doug’s has a seafood stand selling fresh fish and lobster rolls, Greek and Italian food is also available. Can be a fun morning but parking is tight and it does get crowded.
