The Staff was polite and professional with quick service. I booked a room with double beds, which were amazingly comfortable. I’ll be booking again for my next weekend getaway.

Clean rooms and friendly staff. Nice access to the beach.

Close to beach, nice pool & bar. Too noisy outside!!!

Beautiful location & well maintained Surprised by no exhaust fan in lavatory.

Love how close to the beach it was and the pool bar was great

Wrist bands to I’d guests,plenty of towels at pool

We arrived on a monday may 13 only to find that the only resturant on site was only open for breakfest inly reason being it was off season. However many rooms were booked.. nothing to rat after 5pm when the tiki bar closes. Not a vending machine anywhere on the property. So stuck if you dont eat by 5pm. The staff wasnt knowledgeable about the island and the offers it had. Great for a 1 or 2 nite stay but not a week...

I loved the location! I didn’t like the resort fee for $150 considering we had to buy umbrellas for the beach, that should be included on a beach “resort”. The service at the Tiki bar was VERY slow, and the frozen drinks contained very little alcohol. My biggest issue is that The Sanibel Island Beach Resort did NOTHING to compensate the fact that I paid for a room with 4 people, through ORbitz. The rooms were too small for 4 people, so my sister paid over $2000 for another room. When I called orbitz for help to possibly refund my money for 2 of the 4 people, they checked with the resort, and the Sanibel Island Resort would NOT refund my money!! So, I paid for a room for4 people that 2 people stayed in , and my sister paid an additional $2000 for another room. In my opinion, that is poor customer service. I will not be staying at the Sanibel Island Resort again, or booking through Orbitz!!

Location, location, location! A hidden gem. Quaint motel on the beach that offers lounge chairs and towels at no chair. If salt waters not your thing they offer a pool to enjoy.

Overall it was a good experience. They need to get umbrella's into the mix at the beach. Most of the "resorts" in the area provide them. I get it that they can charge because it is spring break, but make it worth the money then. $450+ for a Tuesday room, including the fees and taxes - this place was nice but not that nice. Their staff was great though - front desk, bar, room staff - all were enjoyable and helped us a lot.

Very Sweet little hotel. I would have liked a balcony or outdoor sitting area by the room. Otherwise, it was very affordable and nice. The food was excellent!

We just loved this property. Wonderful grounds direct access to beach ..we brought our dogs and they had such a good time. The room was large and the bed was comfortable..big screen tv and a couch and nice table to eat at. We also ate at the kitchen for dinner and it delicious had a strawberry and spinach salad with chicken and banana bread pudding. Staff was very friendly and the property was well maintained! Lots of hammocks and tiki huts to sit at...wonderful shelling of course...tons of bunnies too 😍

We liked the beach front access, pool and bar of our no. 250 suite. The people at the front reception desk were very helpful.

Beautiful place. As advertised. Great location on the beach. Clean and relaxing pool and sun deck. Clean rooms and attentive staff.
