Positive Reviews

Plenty to entertain yourself

With an outdoor pool at Sanibel Inn and with the beach just a short walk away, there are lots of ways to spend enjoyable time here. Kayaks and paddle boards can be provided, along with beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. The pool is spacious and a relaxing place to chill out, and it is nice to have a stroll along the beach.

Go further afield

If you are feeling adventurous, then you can borrow a bicycle. The use of them is included in the resort fee and it is a great way to see everything the island has to offer.

Helpful people

The staff at this resort are really friendly and will go out of_x000D_ their way to assist. If you need any help from them whatsoever, all_x000D_ you have to do is ask and they will do all that they can to deal with_x000D_ your request. You'll feel well looked after and as though your custom_x000D_ is important.

Negative Reviews

Unwelcome guests

You might find, if you have requested a king size bed, that actually you are allocated a room with two queens instead. This isn't the end of the world but if you specifically require a king, you perhaps need to double check that is what you will be given.

Noisy air

Some of the air-conditioning units are pretty loud, which can make it hard to get to sleep. A few of them tend to drip a little bit as well.

Unwelcome visitors

Some guests have complained about there being lots of ants in the kitchen areas at Sanibel Inn.
