Sanibel Moorings Resort has great ratings but it’s not for everyone and I didn’t find it special, given my particular situation.

First, it’s appeal: meticulous, beautiful landscaping, with good signage; short walk to the beach, with beach umbrellas and chairs; spacious, fully equipped condos with a pleasant decor.

This is a place for families with small children, couples who want a quiet time together and outdoor types that like to do things on their own.

So what’s the problem? Sounds perfect, right.

The biggest negative for me is that the place shuts down at 6:00 pm. No staff, no restaurant, no bar. You’re on your own. I arrived after dark, my first time there, and had a helluva time finding my room. There are 16 apartments of condos on two sides of the main road so the place is spread out. Signage for the office is not good and advance literature didn’t give me a clue about where my room was. In fact, I had to find the office and then open a lockbox to get my key to my room and other info, including a map of the premises showing my room was. Unfortunately I wasn’t told about the map so I didn’t find it until the next day. I didn’t really need it then.

I would not recommend Sanibel Moorings Resort for single individuals, unless you are a recluse.

Thank you for your review of Sanibel Moorings Resort. We try to get the appropriate paperwork to all of our incoming guests in regards to our office hours and late arrivals, yet some of the various Expedia or Hotels.com websites do not provide them and I am sorry that that was the case with your arrival. Our doors are always open, and we do hope to welcome you back to the little piece of paradise that is Sanibel Island.

Trip was about 40 minutes from Fort Meyer airport. Beautiful grounds and our condo was walking distance to the beach! Our condos furnishings were great. Comfortable beds and spacious kitchen. Enjoyed the screened in porch. Would definitely return!

We’ve been vacationing Sanibel Island for many years and we always return because it’s so beautiful!!!! We stay at Sanibel Moorings because that’s our home away from home. We loved the newly renovated rooms.

Room Tip: Room 311 was fabulous!!!!

As always, our stay was fantastic ! The condo was exactly as described, and the ground were beautiful. The staff was very helpful as always- even helping me with a very bad automobile problem by pointing me to a good honest repairman. I hope to return soon!

Great place to stay. Always great shells and sand dollars to find. Went in mid June and were afraid it would be too hot. Weather was perfect. 3rd time at Sanibel Moorings and plan to return again next year.
