We had a great time in Sanibel! Location is fantastic, the beach is great and the unit was nice. The room was dirty when we arrived (bathroom was disgusting) but that was resolved. Our unit's kitchen was without any essentials - so make sure your salt, sugar, spices, oil, etc. are with you if you plan to cook. All in...

Our trip to Sanibel and Sanibel Moorings was more than we could ever ask for. We have rented many homes/condos in different locations and this was one of the best ever. Every amenity covered. Spotless condo. Beautifully decorated. Just splendid!

Shells, shells and more shells! Perfect beach location. Our kiddos were lucky because as they were swimming a couple of dolphins swam not 20 feet by them. They found live sand dollars, starfish and other marine life. However the condo has two great pools that were utilized by my young niece and nephew, too. We kayaked the canal and saw...

We stayed in April in two units ( beach front 211 and dock 1321) - very convenient location, all necessary amenities, spotless, pleasant design of the units. Friendly service.

My daughter and I are just returning after a week's stay. We loved Sanibel as well as Sanibel Moorings.

“Sanibel Moorings is designed with very few Gulf front rooms, which seems rather a shame for a beach resort. I would strongly recommend a Gulf front unit for ambiance and a shore feel (and for quiet, a second floor unit) rather than the units that are (rather generously) labelled as garden views. ”

“To avoid issues with bugs, I recommend any unit NOT on the 1st floor!”

“Ocean Front is worth it! ”

“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.”
