We stayed in Sanibel Moorings on the gulf side which is right on the beach, which is incredible. Great for swimming,walking and shelling. We stayed in apartment 1121 which was a bit of a disappointing compared to the pictures on the website. The rooms were darker and smaller than they appeared on the website.

The apartment was nice- not opulent, but functional- and the property is beautiful. Basically a microcosm of the whole island. The price for the stay was really good and with the money we saved we could wine and dine at will. We will be back here soon.
