Property location was ideal for us, right on the water, near lots of private homes, and about 3 miles from town. Use of paddleboards, bikes, and pool towels was awesome! The big drawback was the room itself. The wall mounted AC unit is obnoxious and is guaranteed to wake you or keep you awake. We had the unit set at 73 and 74 during our stay in Aug and it wasn't enough to cut the humidity in the room. Everything was damp! That got old fast. And we live in FL, so we understand humidity. Although the exterior of the property is lovely, breakfast in the restaurant was good, and the staff was most helpful, we will likely pay $20 more a night and try a different property next time. The room was too disappointing.

The staff was friendly and very helpful. I loved our view, and will definitely recommend to friends and family!

Friendly staff, nice big swimming pool, few steps from the beach. I like their kitchenette, they have pots, utensils big fridge, etc. You can cook if you want. Good place to stay if you're staying couple days in Sanibel. We will come back!.

i room were very nice... my friend who is disabled, did have a problem with the height of the bed (too high) but otherwise great... i enjoyed watching the rabbits on the property and walk to ocean was short...

The property itself was beautiful. Small things could have been done to make the rooms a lot more friendly. I was in the eastern facing room where just a small curtain over the main entry doors glass could have been very beneficial. I know its a beach paradise, but somehow it is not fun to have your room flooded with sunshine at 7am and a curtain or ability to cover the glass lined front door would have been amazing. Property is beautiful with the perfect beach front anyone could ever ask for.

I loved how friendly and courteous the staff was. Every single staff member we encounter was exceptional. The property was very clean and well maintained. I love it!! I will be back :)

Right on beach. Nice room. Restaurant, pool. Very friendly staff

We enjoyed the pool, shuffle board, restaurant, bar, bikes, and that it’s right on the beach.

So close to the beach. Great pool bar with music and happy hour. Location is great. Staff was great. Food good. I would certainly go back.

Great location and access to beach. Very friendly staff. Would come again!

Enjoyed the property the only negative thing was encounter with no-see-eems they are brutal. But thats not the hotel fault they are bad on the island. Planning to return to same property next year.

we didn't like, not being told about the no see um's so we could have taken precautions. we wound up with dozens of bites that burn and are terribly itchy and they last for days, even weeks. they could sell something at the property that could prevent this.

Steps from ocean. Room decent size and clean! However, in need of fresh paint throughout hotel. Free bikes only one day. Normandy restaurant very good#

Such a great location! Steps from the beach. Great views from the pool. Free use of bicycles and paddle boards. We would definitely come back.

Great bikes, pool. Good food at the normandie restaurant!
