We were able to change to a better room

We loved the view, pool was nice, there was enough to do with the games available and bikes. The only negative was the room smelled musty upon arrival.

It was not crowded and the resort is compact. There was some loud guests at the pool but staff did take care of the problem. Our rooms were always cleaned in a timely manner. The staff in all areas was excellent, very friendly, helpful and courteous. Would definitely come back!

The pool was outstanding. It actually has cold water pumping into the pool which I had never seen before. In Florida, this a definite perk. The pool is heated in the Winter. Pool and service was great too. They have complimentary paddle boards and bikes which is another perk. We rented a golf cart so we didn’t take advantage of those perks this trip. Our room was overlooking the ocean and the beach. Pic below was from our room. We loved it so much that we booked an extra night. We ate at Normandie restaurant 3 out of the 4 days that we stayed. They all wore masks and practiced social distancing with the tables spread out because of the Corona Virus. The customer was definitely their highest priority. The food was great and Nick, our server, was exceptional. We loved this place and didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be back.

Very friendly staff, clean room, excellent location

Excellent location, love the staff , free bike rentals

Updated room, very friendly stuff and atmosphere is my favorite points.

Stand up paddle boards & bikes are available for guests use.

Loved the friendly staff, proximity to the beach, pool, lunch from the pool bar (reasonable), sunset row, rinse off showers, location on the island, microwave and mini fridge in room! We’ll definitely be going back!

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!.
