Property is nice and beach is just steps away. Room was clean. Not super fancy or anything but fine for people that just want to enjoy the island and not spend a lot of time in the room. My only complaint would be that beach chairs are only provided from 9am-5pm. We would have liked to utilize the chairs a little later in the evening.

we had a great stay at the Sanibel Island Beach Resort. Few things of note are, the resort is older but well maintained, the air conditioning in the room is a wall unit and is quite noisy. The beds are not as comfortable as desired and the pillows are terrible. Bring your own if possible. Other than that we enjoyed the location, the area is quiet and the beach is beautiful. Chairs are available but not until after a certain time, could be earlier for sunrise watchers. Pool hours are a little limited as well.

Location is excellent. The rooms are perfect for 2 people. The pool is a life saver. The beach is only a short walk and is fabulous! The shells are 2nd to none. The staff is friendly and helpful. Easy ride to any other beach. I love it!

4/10 Fair

Poor service and small rooms for price
Pets were not welcomed even though advertisements said pet friendly. Even ESA animals had to pay $75 dollar fee everyday. Parking lots had unsafe access to rooms over stones and raised beds. No service of food after breakfast except at the pool. Expected better service for price. Expected bigger rooms for the price paid.
