We had a wonderful time during our stay at Sanibel Moorings. It has so many high points, very clean unit, beautiful grounds, nice pools, helpful associates, easy beach access, great amenities, etc. We could not have had a better stay and we plan to return soon! Thanks Sanibel Moorings!

A great place to relax, many things to do. The property is very clean and staff very personable and helpful. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed on the harbor side, slips are available if you have a boat. We are planning a return trip sometime in the spring.

Everything was great, except setting up & carrying chairs& umbrella to beach, as they are large. Staff were friendly, very helpful. The grounds are so pretty & relaxing....so Florida! We will for sure plan another vacation at the Moorings. The location is convenient to most everything on Island.

This place shows what happens when maintenance assesssments/POA dues are inadequate over a long period of time. Basically, the property lacks any "snap" whatsoever. I don't get why it garners all these rave reviews. I felt like I was staying in a dated 1980's timeshare. Cheap wicker/rattan furniture, cheesy wall art, cheap appliances, berber carpet & vinyl. Even the plantation... More

This is our fourth comfortable, relaxing, girlfriend beach vacation at the Moorings. The 2 bedroom 2 bath unit meets all of the needs of four vacationing women. The screened first floor patio within the lush Florida foliage is a favorite spot. Now, let's talk about the beach, pool, and property of the Moorings - a perfect 10.

Sanibel Moorings is a very nice beachfront resort/condo destination and we really enjoyed the rooms and quaint, tropical setting. Being so close to beach is wonderful, you can just walk out in the morning and start shelling. The pool is a decent size and having access to bike/canoe rentals is helpful. All two-story buildings makes getting to and from your... More

“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. ”
