This is the third year we've stayed at Sanibel Arms West. We absolutely love it there. It's the perfect vacation spot. The condos are beautiful and you can't beat the location. The staff are super friendly and helpful. They make your stay easy and comfortable. We'll keep coming back for years.

We are a group of 6 friends who stayed in the K building last week in March. The weather cooperated and it was beautiful the whole week. The condo was easy walking distance to the beach which was covered in beautiful shells. Our condo was clean and well equipped as well as comfortable to share with 6 adults. The maintenance people were very responsive. All our neighbors were respectful of quiet after 10:00 and everyone we met were quite friendly...lots of mid-westerners. The traffic on the main roads was tough between 3 and 6 but lots of people rent bikes to get around. We will definitely return.

This was my 4th year staying at Sanibel Arms West. I love it!!!! The office staff, Megan and Courtney are helpful and courteous. They will answer any questions or concerns you may encounter. The condos are neat, well kept and the grounds beautifully landscaped. It has everything I could ask for in a relaxed environment. The Island has many restaurants, shops and Big Arts for entertainment. The Sunday morning Farmers' Market is always a must. I am already looking forward to staying there again next year.

My wife and I spent a wonderful 8 weeks at SAW this past winter, Jan 6- Mar 3. We have stayed in the I building several times and always found the units spotless and the grounds wsell maintained. The staff is first rate and always great to deal with on the few occasions we had to ask a a question or request minor maintenance. The I-1 unit was attractive, well appointed, and quiet, just a few hundred yards from the beach. The pool across the way could be occasionally noisy, but mostly with small children, and not bothersome to us old folks. Reading and napping on the chaise lounge provided a perfect complement to a day of walking and bike riding. Relatives also enjoyed their visits. We expect to continue these winier vacations in the same unit for years to come.

This was our 3rd year of staying there and we will be back again next year. It's close to the beach and the staff is fantastic. Anything you want or need to have done they are there immediately . There is a pool on the property and a sun roof for those of us who love laying in the sun. A top rate place.

Have been to Sanibel Arms West many times over the years. Steve and ALL of his staff are simply the best. Occasionally have strayed at other places, but end up back at SAW. They are so attentive to any needs, it seems like one has their own staff of personal assistants.

We stayed a week in March 2018 having stayed here and other condos on the Island for many past vacations. This place is first rate! The buildings and grounds are very well kept, lounge chairs are available, the grills worked just fine. A nice business center with computers/printers available to guests. Staff was friendly and attentive.

I recently visited Sanibel. This is the second time I have stayed at the Sanibel Arms West condos. The accommodations are wonderful as well as the staff. All the condos I stayed in were clean, refreshing and w a great island feel and decor. The kitchen area was well stocked w utensils and good working appliances. I love the beach front condos - right out the door to the beach. They have beach chairs for you to use so you don’t have to drag yours from home. They also have tennis courts and bicycles to use plus lots more amenities. This last visit, I called on a weekend and got the answering service. They took my message and Monday morning I received a call and low and behold a condo had come available. This was a last minute trip for me so I thought it was full w no vacancies. It was a great service to get the call early in that Monday Additionally on the day I was check in, the staff called me and informed me my condo was ready - earlier than the normal checkin time I believe the ladies I spoke w and Saw at the reception area were Megan and Courtney- they were super friendly, helpful and professional. This is a wonderful vacation spot and the Sanibel Arms West is the best. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Sanibel and definitely will stay at Sanibel Arms West condo Thank you

We started in unit J7 and it was steps away from the beach which made it very convenient. The unit is also close to the pool which made it nice for our afternoon swims. We loved sitting on the balcony during the morning for breakfast and in the evening for dinner. The location is very convenient to downtown and we ride bikes everywhere we went.

It was our first time on Sanibel Island and we loved it! The grounds of the resort were exquisite. The pool is covered by a screen with an upstairs tanning deck. The view of the beach from the deck was spectacular. They provide nice lounge chairs and umbrellas to use at the beach. The Beach is simply lovely with white sand and shells galore! The Condo was very clean and nicely appointed with any item needed in the kitchen and bathrooms to enjoy your stay. The management, maintenance, and office staff went out of their way to answer questions and show us around. This is a must see! We will be back for another visit soon!
