We have been to Sanibel Island many times and the Moorings is the only place we stay. Wonderful amenities, beautiful grounds, and many of the condos are getting makeovers bringing them up to date. If you have children, this is a wonderful place to bring them as the beach is just steps away and the pool is an awesome alternative... More

We spent the week of 4/2/16 at the Sanibel Moorings. It was a wonderful week. Office staff were always pleasant and easy to talk too. The condo was well equipped and just as described.

We've stayed at Sanibel Moorings before, and had a great time. Same unit, although this year the condo showed a bit more wear. The maintenance staff was responsive, but the pull out couch could not be repaired.

Loved the gardens, the beach, the condo...everything. Very clean and up to date. The web photos don't show how wonderful it is. Canal side condo had a wonderful view. Well worth the additional cost. Pools were nice, but the weather was so good, we spent all of our time on the beach.

Family friendly complex right on the Gulf with lush gardens and attentive staff - what's not to love? We have been coming here for years and it always delights.

“The unit was very nice. Our only complaints are: only one sofa. When other family members visited the unit for dinner or hanging out there wasn't a lot of seating room. The second was the master bathroom was tiny. The bathroom off the hall is bigger. Two people can't be in there at the same time. Other than that the unit was very nice. On our next visit to Sanibel moorings we'll probably chose a diff unit though. The complex as a whole is great. We've been there four times now and plan to come back many more times as well. ”
