Our 2-week stay @ Sanibel Moorings could not have been better! The Front Office staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. They always greet you with a smile...Leona, Rosie, Andie, and Grace. Nothing is beyond their powers to provide! Our 2-bedroom unit on the lagoon side was clean and had every amenity we needed. Our porch view from the second floor...

We had a fantastic vacation staying at Sanibel Moorings. We stayed in a lovely condo which was recently updated and just gorgeous, # 331. The grounds are very tropical and lush. We rented bikes for the week we were there and traveled the island every day by bike. Rarely drove our car. We saw dolphins almost every day right out...

We've been staying at the Moorings for 23 straight years. Sometimes for one week, sometimes two. As our kids were growing up, it was perfect for the whole family. The beach, the pool, the open grounds--a great place. The condos--and we stayed in several--are all clean and comfortable, with everything you need. The verandas are large enough that six people...

Sanibel Moorings has a terrific setting with great condos, especially for families. Easy access to the beach, awesome gardens, nice pools, and grilling areas. Also, it is easy to get on and off the island from this location. We had a great time!

This is in a great location. The grounds are exquisite and perfectly maintained. They have access to a wonderful shell beach. If I could, I would rate the grounds and gardens, and location a 10. The unit we rented was a bit rundown and not in a good way. The unit was clean enough, the furnishings were in decent shape....

We have visited Sanibel Moorings many times and by far this is a superior vacation destination! Friendly helpful staff, magnificent grounds and by far the best location on the island to catch a glimpse of dolphins !

We have gone to this condo resort on Sanibel Island for many years and have always been very pleased with our stay there. Beautifully decorated condos, lovely pools, amazing gardens and plant life, and, of course the more than beautiful beach and all those gorgeous shells. The staff is excellent and takes care of everything. Every year, as we are...

We love Sanibel Moorings and return each year. The condos are great, well kept and very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. We stay on the Gulph side and are just a short walk to the beach. Our rental this year faced East Gulph Road and we found it too noisy from all the traffic whe sitting on...

Different restaurant for breakfast and dinner daily. Sanibel Moorings is VERY quiet and convenient. Lots of green space, trees and shade. Two (2) comfortable pools. This place makes a nice vacation as it's ON the ocean (188 steps away) with beach chairs and umbrellas provided. They even have a canoe and kayaks for use on the canals. Great place for...

“Try to get a condo that's either beach front or beach view. The condos overlooking the parking lot (and the street) are as large and clean as the others, but breakfast and cocktails on the veranda certainly is not the same thing. Also, don't get a condo overlooking the pool--they tend to be loud. There are nice condos across the street overlooking the canal, but it's a farther walk to the beach. Again, try to get canal front or canal views--away from the pool.”
