We loved our stay at sanibel moorings. They had all the amenities with kayaks, beach chairs/umbrellas, bikes to rent, pool for the kids. And at a reasonable price. It was in a great location; on the beach and easy bike (1-2mi) to restaurants

we have stayed at the moorings many times and always enjoy coming back. the grounds are beautiful & the staff very helpful. a few issues with the unit but nothing serious. the garbage disposal needed deordorizing and refrigerator door closing problem. a little closer inspection of the unit before new arrivals is suggested.

We spent 3 nights in Unit 131 at Sanibel Moorings in 11/16. This Unit (on the first floor of a 2-story building) is a decent size, with one bedroom, one bath (which is a little cramped and, if it matters, has only a good-sized shower but no tub), a living room (with a sofa bed), dining area and galley-style fully-equipped...

Based on the reviews, we felt that Sanibel Moorings was the best choice. Now that we have returned from our honeymoon, we know that we made the right decision. From start to finish, the... More

“The room was perfect. ”

“The unit was very nice. Our only complaints are: only one sofa. When other family members visited the unit for dinner or hanging out there wasn't a lot of seating room. The second was the master bathroom was tiny. The bathroom off the hall is bigger. Two people can't be in there at the same time. Other than that the unit was very nice. On our next visit to Sanibel moorings we'll probably chose a diff unit though. The complex as a whole is great. We've been there four times now and plan to come back many more times as well. ”
