We celebrated retirement by bringing our family to Sanibel Moorings. The condos, beach, grounds and pool make this an excellent spot for family fun. We have stayed here before several times and are anxious to return again to this slice of paradise.

We were very happy with the units rented. Were here 20 years ago, and found nothing had changed as to upkeep, and grounds are still outstanding. Very convenient to the beach and pool. My family with grandkids were never bored(teenagers) and that is a positive in itself.

“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.”
