Casa Ybel is beautiful. Beautiful grounds, nice pool, great pool bar, great beach. The condo's are a bit small, but clean, nicely kept and they all face the ocean. It really is a beautiful place that we return to every year. It's a great resort for kids. Lots of room to play and not worry about them. Volleyball, shuffle board,...

Right off the bat the grounds of Casa Ybel are beautiful. You cross over a lovely bridge with gorgeous flowers throughout the resort. The individual buildings are set up nicely with every unit having a water view I think. I made a reservation for the four of us for a one-bedroom place that would have 2 queen beds but was...

Every year we go to Casa Ybel over Winter Break, and since it was re-done after the most recent hurricane, the facilities are nice, bright, clean. Everything you could want is in each unit, there is no need to buy anything but your food. The pool is huge, with plenty of lounge chairs. The island is loaded with great shopping,...

I am here now and initial impressions are that it is a great resort. It is clean, welcoming and has that manicured American feel. The views all around are stunning. The appartments look very well maintained and have a luxury look. Disappointingly The longer I am here however, the more holes I find to not give it 5 stars. Firstly...

Casa Ybel is such a wonderful spot on Sanibel Island. It has a great location, nice staff and wonderful accommodations. It's right on the beach, so it's perfect for beach lovers. Very family friendly with a large pool and fantastic pool bar. The Mudslide is our favorite!

This was our first time to Sanibel Island - stayed at Casa Ybel after hearing about it from a friend. I tend to be picky but this place was absolutely beautiful and great accommodations. We have 2 girls - 8 and 7 years old and I was nervous how we would fit in a one bedroom condo but it was...

I was on a mission to find a fine dining location for our quarterly company dinner. Top location, customer service and fine food were all on the top of the list. Ft.

My husband is VERY particular and ridiculously "type A". So, I need to be very careful when selecting vacation accommodations. Even grading on the "sleepy island curve"-- Casa Ybel is doing it right. Beginning with the reservations process: polite, professional and "warm". Only issue to note is that I had to ask "what else can we buy"-- meaning--I had to...

Casa Ybel Resort has many good qualities. It is immaculately clean and well maintained. It is in a beautiful location. It aspires to be (and markets itself as) a top-shelf destination, but falls victim to cutting corners in ways that detract from the overall experience. Let's start with positives. We had booked a one-bedroom unit and were upgraded to a...
