We love everything about the Moorings and the islands of SANIBEL and Captiva. Quiet, pristine . It's like you are no longer attached to the USA. Our unit was perfection. The grounds and beach...

Wonderful, peaceful place where we could relax and enjoy the beautiful garden, the pools, the excellent tennis course and the beach. Also, we took the oppotunity to use the kayaks which both adults and children liked alot. Very well-kept, clean and well-equipped facilities. We all hope to be able to visit again sometime.

We will be back over and over. The accommodations in 511, the staff, the view and the easy access to the island are superior. Just to fill in the missing 75 words, we actually appreciated the phone not working for a week.

I have been going to the Moorings for a number of years. The units are always clean and comfortable. We missed the special free night by one week and I was disappointed that they would not give it to us. If you look at my track record, this is the only place I stay in Sanibel. Last time I had...

Spent a week at the Moorings...we have two pets and it is a challenge to find really nice accommodations. We had a very clean and well stocked two bedroom condo with a great screened in porch for all to sit and enjoy. A very professional operation. Thank you for a beautiful week.

Have stayed here multiple times. Always great! We enjoy the quick access to the beach, but being off the beaten track for location. October is a good time of year to come as the water is warm, and the crowds are small.

“The room was perfect. ”

“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. ”
