Reviewed 13 August 2013

We stayed in room 342 for a long weekend in August. The condo and resort were very comfortable and clean. We loved the proximity to the beach and beautiful pool. We had requested a crib before our arrival and it was all set to go when we arrived. There were three adults and 2 children that stayed. We all had a great time and hope to return again soon.

Room Tip: Room 342 was great

Truly beautiful. Family friendly, courteous helpful staff. Gardens outstanding, beach to die for. Wish I was there now. Once you've been you will understand. One memorable holiday. The Gulf of Mexico was warmer than my local swimming pool in London! Loved the free use of the kayaks. I feel bad writing this because the selfish part of me wants to keep it all to myself. Thank you Sanibel Moorings.

Fantastic! The most relaxing place ever! The gardens are spectacular, be sure to take the tour on Tuesday! We recommend Gramma Dots, the Timbers and Matzaluna! Visit the birds at Jerry's and have key lime pie from island pizza. Lazy Flamingo is just ok.

We are leaving tomorrow. We stayed in #642.
Pros: Our stay has been pleasant on Sanibel. Great location on the beach! My husband & I are here with our 3 teenage boys. The grounds are well maintained & the gardens are lovely. We have enjoyed the flowers & lizards here! There are nice grills with fresh herbs growing near each grill.
We are upstairs and do have a patio & bedroom windows on the street side, but have a thick garden view outside. We have not heard any cars or other guests. I exchanged towels halfway through our stay with a friendly staffer. It was also helpful to do 2 loads of laundry halfway through our stay. Other guests have been very friendly & many are repeat visitors. We were always able to find an umbrella & loungers at the beach.
Cons: The beds & pillows are too hard in this unit. We did arrive close to midnight and did not have any bedding for the sofabed (1 spare pillow, no blankets & no sheets). The front desk was unapologetic the next morning & indicated it was my fault for not specifically requesting the sofabed & also because I did not book directly with them. My reservation in the office clearly indicated 5 people. A big problem that should not have occurred in a condo with a King, 2 twin beds & a sofabed.

Sanibel Moorings made our vacation wonderful. First of all, the management staff is top notch. They were so helpful and attentive. The grounds were impressive and close to the beach. My husband loved the Weber grills (newer Genesis model) available for guests to use. We enjoyed the free kayak usage and bicycle rentals on-site. Thank you, Sanibel Moorings, for a wonderful vacation.

We rented a two-bedroom condominium on the third floor overlooking the docks during the end of July. It was perfect for our family of four. Amenities were plenty. Rooms were clean and well furnished. Grounds were well kept. Staff was welcoming and very helpful. This was a gorgeous place and Sanibel Island is worth seeing. I definitely recommend it and will come back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the docks and not too far from the pool seem quieter and away from foot traffic.

We had a 2bedroom, 2 bath, 2nd floor condo, with gulf view. Condo very comfortable and clean, rooms just right size and well appointed. Love the 2 screened balconies, and the spectacular garden views. Really enjoyed wandering through the gardens and short distance to walk along the beach. Staff were very nice and helpful. Other patrons were also very nice, and met many who had stayed there multiple times. Would love to go back.

Room Tip: Glad I chose a 2nd floor condo with gulf view. Had nice view of gulf and gardens both.
