My wife and I stayed at Song of the Sea for a long weekend (without the kids) to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. We were impressed from the start with the friendly hotel staff and clean room. The rooms are large and the fridge and stove were very nice to have. We asked for a late checkout but they needed...

We have stayed here about 8-9 times in the past 15 years.. Love the fact that it is mostly only couples, quite and so relaxing. The pool is wonderful and we love the fact that when you get a bottom floor room you only a a few feet to walk out to the pool. We will continue to come back.

I've been to this hotel a couple of times and they've never disappointed. The rooms are great - equipped with a kitchen that includes fridge, microwave, stove, pots, pans, glasses, etc. Super helpful, if you have kids or you go on a fishing trip and want to cook up your catch of the day! The screened in porch was great...

Beach front room was $251 (AAA rate), overpriced I thought, for what it turned out to be.. It wasn't exactly "beach front", more like "ocean view." The tiny bedroom had almost wall to wall king sized bed. There was only about a foot between the foot of the bed and the wall. However, the mattress was comfortable. Furniture in "living...

This was our second stay at Song of the Sea. They gave us a free bottle of wine that was waiting in our room at check in, so a nice touch.

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.
