Very nice

This hotel was right on the beach and had it's own tikki bar so it was very convenient to just sit and relax. I will definitely return!

holiday

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was easy to get to, and it was right on the beach. We had breakfast daily in the dining room. Better than most. The room was clean and comfortable.

If you come with children, there is a refrigerator and microwave in each room. That would be a big money saver.

Long Family Weekend

The hotel was on the beach, which is what we wanted. The pool was nice and the tiki bar had a friendly staff. The hotel as a whole had very nice people working there. We were hoping for a little more for our money, but we were not disappointed at all. We knew we were getting a hotel room, not a suite! Great location central to all the activities on Sanibel and Captiva.

Experience Island Time

The hotel grounds are lush and tropical with many flowering plants. The beautiful beach and its aqua water is a very short walk from the hotel complex. Staff was helpful and friendly. The tiki bar at the pool is a great place to take a beach break.

A nice place

This is a very nice hotel. The location is pretty ideal on the island. There are some nice little things..hammocks, an outdoor ping pong table. The rooms are nice. The price is reasonable for what you get. My one complaint is that the staff could have been friendlier. The front desk, the people taking care of the beach chairs and umbrellas, the restaurant staff, they could all just be a little nicer and act like they sort of like their jobs. There were a couple guys who were very helpful and friendly. A couple middle aged guys that seemed to have a job title of something like a property manager. I immediately noticed these few employees around the property who were very helpful with whatever little questions we had. I would recommend this hotel, just be selective in the staff you approach with questions or concerns.

Holiday Inn Sanibel

This is an OK hotel. Breakfast is not included as it is at many Holiday Inn's. The restaurant associated with the hotel is good, but the service is very slow and it's expensive. The rooms would be very much improved if we could open the window. The location is fabulous.
