This place is amazing. The beaches are great for shelling. We had a two bedroom condo. Plenty of room for everyone. Sitting on the screened in balcony at night is so relaxing. Only thing ti look out for are the no-see-ums. The are little bitting bugs yiu cant see. Bring some off.

Great hotel and great location. Walked to beach and pool is right next to the beach. Rooms were very clean and staff were accommodating of all requests. Rooms are large and well appointed. Grounds are well kept. You're close to sanibel shopping and all the restaurants. Will stay again
