          Stayed 5 nights awesome location and view from room. Cannot understand why any negative reviews. The resort can't help there are no seeums, only negative is the restaurant should have more Windows and the menu is very limited.

          The outside property and the beach are nice. The rooms were clean but dated. The staff was very helpful. I'm riding the fence on whether I would recommend. With a little more detail inside the room I would recommend a stay.

          A very pleasant stay. Enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfasts. So convenient and a very attractive setting at the Normandie. Would recommend eating there. Can't find anything to complain about. keep up the good work.

          Do your small refrigerators have a freezer in them?
          2 May 2017|
          Answer
          Response from General-Manager-WWI | Property representative |
          The small refrigerators have a freezer just big enough for ice cubes. I would recommend one of our studio units that have kitchenettes.

          Hi, I just wonder if anyone rents a golf cart when staying here and if you would be able to use it around the island.

          Response from General-Manager-WWI | Property representative |
          The best mode of transportation on Sanibel, other than a car, is by bike. Golf carts are prohibited.
