We've been back here twice and it just keeps getting better. The staff are friendly, the gardens are fantastic (a Trip Advisor recommendation for the island!), the beach is awesome and the rooms are fabulous! We met so many families who have been coming here for many, many years. We even got to meet our condo owners who upgraded furniture...

The staff is extremely friendly & helpful. It is a very quite place that is very well done. The grounds are lush and beautiful. The location on the beach was amazing - shells, dolphins, everything was close by and very convenient! I will stay here every time I come back to Sanibel Island!

Great place to stay! Love the amenities and only a short walk to the beach. Love every condo we have stayed in and we have been coming for over 20 years. Great and courteous employees around the condo campus. Love the beach chairs that are provided for each guest.

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.

“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.”
