While my husband and I ultimately enjoyed our stay at Casa Ybel, I didn't feel it was worth the $600+ per night price tag. The rooms are a bit outdated but adequate and the staff were friendly but sometimes lackadaisical. The resort grounds are very nice and well kept. There are two restaurants, The Thistle Lodge and Coconuts (pool side)....

Beautiful view of the gulf! Our room had everything we needed and was great for traveling with kids. The pool bar and restaurant have a good variety of options and the food was great. The pool is huge and heated, and there is a wading pool for small children, with shade nearby. The beach and the water were perfect and...

Casa Ybel is a great place to stay on Sanibel. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. My tween and teen kids loved the shuffleboard and beach volleyball offered. Coconuts (the pool bar and grill) had really good food (we are foodies and were actually surprised at how good it was) and the staff in the restaurant was one of...

We stayed Casa Ybel during the third week of March and unfortunately there was uncharacteristically cold and windy weather during our stay, although we did skip on the NE blizzard. I won't take any stars away for the weather, but that is the context of the review. We loved the beach and pool area. We have small children so the...

First (and last) visit to this hotel -- had been to the restaurant three years ago. For the price, which is luxury, "Fine Hotels Category", this establishment is embarrassing to the category and industry. The rooms were outdated and badly in need of refurbishment. The view and site is great, but that is it!!! Wine list at Thistle Lodge ridiculously...

What a beautiful resort. Really fkrst class. We ate in the Thistle lodge restaurant. It was so classy. Had the best key lime martini. Wonderful grouper fish sandwich and the best lobster bisque ever ever. The view of the beach and pool made you feel like never leaving. I want to go again.

Wow!! Simply amazing. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and the units super clean. The best part is the pool area. It has a separate kids pool that is only 2ft deep and perfect for the little ones. The pool area and "bar" has decent food and drinks and the service is wonderful. I guess my only complaint would be the...

I selected Casa Ybel online and when driving into the property found it quite lovely and well tended. Right on the beach as promised. What I experienced when I went into the office was a tepid greeting and both women at the desk seemed as if they could care less. Two exceptions over the 8 days I was there: Gisela...

You can't get much closer to the beach than at Casa Ybel. We stayed on the first floor of the last building to the right. This was a great choice as it was so quiet, we never saw anyone in any of the other rooms even though the hotel was fully booked. The second floor may have had a slightly...
