Woke up to gorgeous weather - coffee on the lanai watching sea birds swoop & an occasional splash of fish. LOVED EVERY MINUTE!! Oh, walking the beach... More

The Moorings is located on the gulf just east of the causeway onto the island, which keeps the traffic down. Our condo was nothing special in terms of decor, but it was comfortable and clean with a fairly well-equipped kitchen. As others have noted, the amenities are superior: the grounds constitute Sanibel's botanical garden (free tour for guests on Tuesdays),... More

We have stayed here for the past three years and every year enjoy it more. The grounds are beautiful and the condos are well maintained. The staff is very friendly as are the guests. We have met people who vacation here for 20 years or more. We plan to continue our visits for years to come.

“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. ”
