I think I've narrowed it down and am going to spend our family vacation this summer (July 2010) for the first time in Sanibel. We are a family of five, two adults and 3 kids, ages 10, 6, and almost 2 (by then) and we've decided on Casa Ybel, for all the numerous reasons that have been mentioned here! Now, my question is this: cost-wise, I would prefer to stay in one of the one-bedroom suites (we are staying for a week) but is it large enough for a family of 5? We don't mind all sleeping in the same room, but is the one bedroom actually have a separation (by a door) from the kitchen and living area, or is it more of typical hotel room? The reason I'm asking is that we would be putting the little one to bed earlier in the night, and the older kids would want to watch tv, play cards, etc, and my husband and I would love to have some wine on the lanai, so I just want to make sure, before I book, that the 0ne-bedroom suite is enough room for us to do all of this. The 2-bedroom is about $40 more a night. So I guess I'm just wondering if the one-bedroom is truly a one-bedroom, or more of a one-room suite. I hope I'm making sense.
Thanks in advance for any/all replies!!!!
