After a hectic four days in "New Orlins" at the French Quarter festival, we flew onto Fort Myers and Sanibel. We were very pleased with the location. Our room looked out over the garden and the Gulf, as most of them do. The restaurant and pool bar served good and varied food and we also ate take away from the...

Comfortable hotel with good pool and beach. Nothing fancy but comfortable place for families who want to enjoy a beautiful location on the beach. Kitchenettes are a real plus as well as a screened patio.

We loved the location and the clean rooms. Since we loved to take long shell-finding walks, this place was the best! Found lots of shells! Also liked to sit in the private screened-in-porch for lunch. Thanks for a great stay.

Fantastic location, right on the beach. Good standard room and very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Only negative was the on-site restaurant where the quality of the meals didn't really reflect the cost.

Stayed two nights in a double room overlooking the pool. Small size rooms with small bathroom. A bit simple bed linnen quality but clean and functional room with nice towels and good size balcony. Good food and drinks in pool bar. Bicycles for rent at reception.

We loved the location and the hotel was clean. The pool area was very relaxing and it was awesome to be able to walk to the beach. Our room did not have a view of the ocean and the bathrooms are small.

We love this place. A wonderful room with a small kitchen area and a great porch to sit and read and watch the water. We are not crazy about the wall of mirrors in the guest rooms. Just not necessary.

The location is great, right on the beach, but away from the crowds on the south end of the island. The room are a bit old and tired, and at $350 a night, the pillows are an insult. But, the place is quiet and we slept well. I was amazed at all the stars you could see after the sun...

Great location and lots to do, but I was expecting something a bit nicer from the pictures...photos slightly deceiving. It was adequate with nothing glaring to complain about, but our room was slightly musty and outdated. I understand that it is a beach hotel, but the spreads were damp, bathroom was very tight, and towels were thin and small. There...
