I stayed off season (early August) and got a great package deal including airfare and car rental. The staff was welcoming and helpful with advice for dining and activities. I was upgraded to a room overlooking the beach, just steps away from the
sandy shore and shell seeking. Chairs and umbrellas were available to use as well. Room was clean and comfortable, including a kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave and stove. There was a shell cleaning area, pool, pool bar, tennis courts and a restaurant on site. Location was close to the causeway and free, close access to the beach couldn't be better. Also proximity to restaurants, ex. The Timbers - excellent chowder, Bowman's Beach, the J. N. Ding Darling Refuge, and the Sanibel Captiva Road (which I took for a boat trip to Useppa and for a great meal at the Green Flash restaurant). Wish I had more days to stay!
The hotel's website pictures were pretty accurate, the room was slightly smaller than appearance. All other accommodations I was looking for were great. )DVD player, mini microw & refrige. The weather was ideal, breath taking sunset and beach had
a variety of seashells. My visit was short only one day, but I will plan longer another time. Only disappointment, the sheets did not fit bed and mattress was uncomformtably soft. Rating 85-90.
