We stayed at this property in November. It is clean and located on a nice beach. The grounds are well kept. The best rooms are very small. It is very quiet in the evenings. There is a complimentary breakfast with coffee, juice, pastries and waffles.

I have been staying at Song of the Sea since 2001. Even though I have stayed at a few other places on the island, this is the place that feels most like home to me. I stay in a King-size pool-view room that has a well-equipped kitchenette, small bathroom, and large area for bed, a few chairs, and a flat-screen...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Song of the Sea is a romantic Beachfront European style inn located on beautiful Sanibel Island. This intimate inn offers individualized personal service with picturesque views of the beach and the warm Gulf waters on the horizon. To welcome each guest, the Inn offers a complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival. The newly updated guestrooms and suites feature rich combinations of mahogany toned wood and wicker combined with fabrics in shades that mimic the sun-soaked sand just steps away. After a day in the sun, relax by watching the new 42" flat panel television or enjoy a glass of wine on the screened balcony. All of the accommodations feature demi-kitchens to create the perfect vacation home away from home. Greet each morning with a complimentary continental breakfast complete with make your own waffles, an assortment of breakfast breads, fresh fruit, juice and coffee in a beautiful setting on the Inn’s lanai. After breakfast, relax by the pool and spa or take a long bicycle tour of the island’s 23 miles of bike paths. The bicycles are compliments of Song of the Sea. Explore the natural beauty of Sanibel, with two thirds of the island a nature preserve, or find a special treasure in one of the shops on Periwinkle Drive.
