“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We rented 2 units (502 and 602) for the two families. Nice beach, very good location and the condo themselves are very comfortable, clean. The office staff are very helpful in the booking and check-in, check-out process. Will be back if we come back to Sanibel.

Selected this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. Arrived after office hours for check in and they had our key waiting at the hotel next door, which was accommodating. Condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Fully equipped like home. Nice pool and on the beach. Office staff very helpful and accommodating. Quiet complex, not a spring break college hang out at all. We booked last minute so we did not have a choice of units, but would come back and reserve one with gulf view. We had a garden view, which was nice, but water view would be more our choice next time. Complex is clean, including the bbq grills. Unit we rented, 106, was clean, and a homey feel. All balconies are screened, and our corner unit had 2 balconies. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Look for gulf view for spectacular views.

I spent five glorious days with my partner and his two teenage daughters at Sanibel Siesta Unit 109. We loved every second. The condo was clean and well equipped. Sitting out on the lanai watching the palm trees sway in the perfect breeze was heavenly. The beds were very comfortable. The only thing we didn't like was saying goodbye. This is a great place to stay if you like an active vacation. There are so many choices. Hang out at the beautiful beach, amazing pool, bike around town and explore the island....superb.

Room Tip: Look on the Sanibel Siesta website. You can check out details of each unit before booking.

Spent a week in unit 607 before Easter. Had a great time and would do it again!
Sanibel Siesta in general- pleasant dealings with rental office while onsite, great location in Sanibel- we could bike anywhere and never take the car in Sanibel (except the one night it stormed). Right on the beach. Beach area was not crowded at all, even right around Easter. Water in Sanibel was not clear the week we were there, but was pleasant to swim in.
Can walk to a few restaurants. Holiday Inn right next door was convenient for their pool bar (open to public) where you can grab lunch or even an early dinner and drinks and take it to the beach or to your balcony to enjoy. Holiday Inn breakfast seemed overprice and not amazing, but certainly convenient. The Sundial resort was a 5-10 minute walk away on the beach (or sidewalk) and was a nice place for a nicer dinner with ocean view restaurants. Other than that, most meal options were a 1-2 mile bike away on Periwinkle.
Enjoyed kayaking on Tarpon Bay with a tour that said it was 90 mins but really took 2-2.5 hrs and then you could keep the kayak for the rest of the day.
Bike rental onsite was so convenient- they didn't have a large selection of bikes for smaller kids, but they tried hard to find something to work and were successful.
Unit 607- Perfect location! Steps away from the beach so that if wasn't even a big deal to run back up to the room if you forgot something when on the beach. View of ocean from balcony was nice. Huge screened in balcony with afternoon sun, great to enjoy for outdoor breakfasts and lounging. The unit appeared to be all recently redone- kitchen, sinks, floors, furniture, etc. was modern- with the exception of a few details (tub, faucet handles) that seemed older. Also some of the window blinds need some repair or replacement, it was hard to use the ones in the extra bedroom, but we figured out how to work with them- given the way the rest of the unit was upkept well, I'm sure they'll fix those soon. It was nice having curtains on top of the blinds to block out some extra light, although the curtains were not room darkening. Very comfortable chairs to sit in in living room. Bed in Master was comfortable. One small complaint was- the room had lots of extra pillows but no extra pillow cases. So by the time we realized that the rental office was closed so we waited to the next day to get the extra cases- so one night with not enough pillows for our taste. Maybe we could have called the rental office emergency line for pillow cases- not sure, didn't try it.
It was nice having the garage right below for not only the car but to store the beach stuff and bikes. Beach supplies provided were great- beach chairs not fancy but comfortable enough, sands toys great for the kids, even a few floaties were there too.
Would definitely stay here again, and would definitely pick 607 again as well.

We spent 4 days in unit 308. Unit was very clean and comfortably furnished. Beachy theme throughout. A quick walk to the beach. Even quicker walk to the pool. Property was clean. Office staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in unit 407 which was a first for us. It appeared to be freshly remodeled.
We arrived to the island very late but the staff was happy to accommodate us with that. All buildings now have elevator service at Siesta and since unit 407 has a garage, we quickly parked, found a luggage cart and completely unloaded the car and were in the unit in a few minutes.
We immediately noticed how fresh the décor was, including granite in the kitchen and the appliances appeared new. The dining table is also granite matching the kitchen and the entire condo felt very inviting. Added bonus - close to gulf so you can hear the waves and see some of gulf from the lanai.
The condo was immaculate - very clean. This is always a concern when renting a vacation condo and we could not have been more pleased.
During our stay we biked all over the island (even to Captiva one day), we grilled meals on property, walked the beach daily (less than a minute from unit 407 to beach).
We visited the office often to ask directions or advice about places to go/see. The staff was always cheerful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. It was spring break time so very busy but they always took the time to help us and were very friendly.
Unit 407 felt more like a home than a vacation rental. We will definitely try to rent that unit again on our next visit to Sanibel.

Room Tip: Younger families who may spend most of their time at the pool may be happier in the buildings close...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit that overlooked the Gulf. Six of the eight buildings have private garage parking - not a parking garage - your own garage door on the bottom floor. Totally unique here on Sanibel where the sun takes it toll on your vehicle. The unit itself was flawless, full kitchen, big screened patio, biggest shower I've ever seen in a condo-style unit, comfortable furnishings...I could gush endlessly. The wireless worked excellent. My kids wanted to move in permanently. And you're literally steps to the Gulf. The beach path is right at the foot of the stairs. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I understand that each unit is decorated differently but the layouts are the same - all 2/2. Pool area was the norm. No restaurants on site but they're super close. The staff at the front desk was super helpful and although the front desk is not staffed 24/7, you can arrive late and get your key from the hotel next door.

Room Tip: End units have two balconies, one off the living area and one off the master bedroom.
