What can I say? ?! Truly beautiful.
When we arrived it was pouring down. . Not the best introduction to Florida! However...
-ladies on reception were lovely and offered me a towel to dry myself!
-villa was immaculate with beautiful decorations.
-Shame we weren't there for longer! !

We stayed in room 0122, it had a wonderful gulf front view. The furnishings were newer and up to date, which we noticed through pictures online. The kitchen had more utensils than we thought there would be,which was great considering we drove from Ohio.
Kids enjoyed the room, except our 14 month old kept trying to stick things into uncovered outlets. Some were covered but some were not. The rooms were exactly what we hoped for. The beds slept nice. Loved the master bathroom.
The beach was great, just as expected. Except for the no see ums. My wife was getting bit a lot and once we noticed them they invaded our kitchen. Told the front desk and they sent maintenance immediately and then followed up with an exterminator the following day. The grounds was very quiet which was nice. The grounds was absolutely beautiful, loved watching the lizards.

The pool was nice, by the front desk, except it was extremely warm. Kids still loved it. Getting our own beach chairs wasn't bad but I think if we hadn't had a full time babysitter with us to help with our girls, then it would have been hectic. Umbrella need updated to actually stay in the sand, but I enjoyed the challenge.

Towel exchange could have been better in the area of hours open, but the exchange itself was easy and the staff was nice. Check in was easy as was check out. The desk staff was very nice and helpful.

Overall loved the stay, would more than likely stay again, loved the island.

We have recently returned from 10 night stay at sannibel moorings and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We stayed in a dock side condo 1341 and it was top notch. It was clean,bright and airy and had everything you could possibly need. The view from our patio was amazing. We saw all sorts of wildlife in and around the canal including a family of manitees.
The location was great, just across the road from the beach where we saw dolphin swimming close to the shore. It is a few miles from good restaurants but it was not a problem as we hired bikes which was fun.
The gardens are beautiful and well maintained.
The only thing I could criticise would be to have more loungers/umbrellas as they were few and far between if you visited the beach after lunch.

Finally the office staff were great. Very friendly, helpful and efficient.

We have visited Florida many times but this has been our favourite holiday so far.thankyou

Room Tip: 1341 has great dock view and access

This is our 3rd time staying at Sanibel Moorings. Each unit is individually owned so when reading the reviews keep that in mind. Some have been updated more recent than others. I rented unit 731 and was very happy. Beautiful kitchen, bathrooms updated and very clean ( I'm picky). The living room furniture I would say would be the next thing that should be updated but really was fine. The grounds are absolutely manicured beautiful. This time we took advantage of the (free) Kayaks and canoe and enjoyed a morning going down the canals on the dockside. The office staff very pleasant and accommodating. Bring your own beach towels. This is a condo and they are not supplied. Many of the condos on the island require a 7 day minimum stay. This one allows for shorter stays.

This was our second time at Sanibel Moorings, and we went back because we loved it the first time. Perfect place, like at home. Beautiful gardens. As an older couple --no children-- we would have liked to have the opportunity to meet other vacationers in a social location within the premises, like a bar or something by the pool, for example. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

We selected Sanibel Moorings for our recent visit to Sanibel because of the good ratings on Trip Advisor, and for the fact that it is dog friendly. My husband and I took our mother-in-law and our dog and her dog for four days and had a wonderful time.

The room was spotless, although the kitchen was a tad small for a two bedroom. However, all of the other rooms were spacious and furnished nicely. We arrived early, and were allowed to check in since our room was cleaned. We didn't encounter any problems during our trip, but did call the front desk to ask for directions. They were very helpful. The resort has two pools and quite a few rooms, and one thing that is nice that they do is assign a parking spot to every room, so you never have to worry about trying to find a spot if you drive anywhere.

We had a wonderful experience during our stay at Sanibel Moorings, and are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Room Tip: Rooms across the road from the office are on the bay side. One advantage to this side is that there...

This is superb. I was working in the US when a friend recommended it as a place to stay when my family were over from the UK. Outstanding in every way. The condos are very well-appointed and just a stone's throw from the beach, where your chairs and umbrellas are provided. The pools keep the children amused and with lush grounds (the nicest of any condos we saw on the island) then you just need to sit back and relax. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout and there is enough to do on the island and around the local area to keep people - especially those with children - happy. For us it was paradise and we will most certainly be going back. The yelling from our children that they had to leave was only stopped by the news that they were off to Disneyworld.

Room Tip: Contact the hotel office beforehand to discuss - the hotel had its room layout online, so we could c...
