Our stay was very nice, the staff made us feel safe and that the pandemic measures they are tsking,are seriuos. thank you for all you did to make stay nice....the beach was excellent, everyone couteius. great to take children.

Beautiful, exclusive on-beach resort! Great COVID cleanliness with masks, shields, roomservice as delivery!

We had a great and relaxing time! Everything looked clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly. The sad part was that because it was during the coronavírus pandemic, not everything was available to guests. But the location is awesome and we were able to enjoy the beautiful beach.

Nice older resort with character. Nice pool facilities but the Tiki bar closed at 6pm. The beach area was ok with chairs available but no umbrellas. Staff was very nice. Steamy bathroom - poor vent. Restaurant was ok - only had appetizers first night - shrimp cocktail sauce was awful. Service was slow and it was not crowded. The 10 or so seat bar was ok but don't expect much night life at this place. Ok for the price.

very cute had a great fell retro contemporary our room was very close pool

Near the beach, chez-lounge chair on the beach every morning. No umbrellas though (you have to buy), and no gym. Every thing else is pretty good

As a picky traveler there wasn’t anything not to like. I will be returning for many years to come.

The resort is direct beachside, with a grove of palms and dunes sheltering the resort from the beach - great access. It's also on a much quieter street than Periwinkle, the main street on Sanibel. The tiki bar served cocktails and good food, though the wait for food was quite long both times we ate there. There are reasonably priced bike and helmet rentals on site and the bikes seem well maintained. Rooms are basic hotel rooms. Staff were very service-oriented and helpful and friendly. The only downside of our stay was the price, but I guess one pays a premium for beach access during a holiday. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the resort.

Fantastic location on the beach. Room was clean, but dated. A small table and two chairs in the room would have made a big difference.

This not what one thinks of when going to a resort. If you are looking for posh or classy look elsewhere. If you are looking for simple and minimal then this is your place.

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!!!
