First time to Sanibel Island. Thoroughly enjoyed our room and beautiful grounds and beach. Staff was very cordial. Really enjoyed Captain Kevin's shell lecture and nature cruise at Ding Darling Refuge.

I have stayed at Sanibel Moorings for many years and it has always been a wonderful place to stay. The staff are so pleasant and friendly, and many of them have also worked there for many years and are acquainted with the incoming guests. The accomodations are excellent and the gardens and surrounding area are lovely. The staff is always...

I have really enjoyed my vacation here. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, with hibiscus bushes and African tulip trees. There is a heated swimming pool, conference center, and easy (less than 5 minutes) beach access with big umbrellas and lounge chairs provided. The units are clean and comfortable. Our unit did not have a washer/dryer combo, but there was a...

Everyone here was very helpful before and during our stay. We received some packages and they helped me send some back. It was a great place to go with little ones and right on the beach! The only thing that would have made it better is if there were more places to walk to (restaurants, ect) but it doesn't seem...

Our first trip to the island and Sanibel Moorings was wonderful! Very comfortable unit, lovely beach. Great to have choice of beach chairs and umbrellas...no need to race to get a place at the beach. The fantastic weather certainly made it even more enjoyable! Hope to return!

Sanibel Moorings has been a great place for us to stay while on the island. We've been visiting since roughly 1996. This time we took advantage of the bicycles available at the Moorings and took a ride to Tarpon Rd Beach. We especially appreciate the friendly and responsive staff at the Moorings -- they are well trained in customer service....

I enjoyed Sanibel Moorings very much and will return. Although our apartment wasn't large, the furnishings were very nice, appeared to be quite new and good quality. I was so happy to be in a lovely unit with my dog (& husband). So often if dogs are allowed, the units are shabby and industrial. Our unit was charming. It was...

Very clean and quiet facilities. Well kept facilities and having bicycles available to ride around the island was an added plus. The beach is ok, but with all the sea shells, walking is hard on the feet and not comfortable to try to do barefoot.
