This is an older property on a lovely beach. You can book beachside or dockside rooms. Dockside rooms are on the other side of the road but it is only a couple of minutes from the lovely beach. It was misleading as we booked a dockside room expecting to look out over the dock but this wasn't the case, we were on the dockside but looked out over the car park which wasn't what we had expected. After I complained we were offered a room looking out over the dock but it wasn't as nice as the original one so decided to go for the nicer room.
Nevertheless the condo, although old, was very clean and nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and was extremely quiet at night.
There are two small pools which are quite old and I think the property does need some updating.
I also pre-paid when booking and didn't then expect to pay a resort fee on arrival, but was asked for this at check-in. We did pay this as it was insisted upon.
We will definitely go back to Sanibel Island as we fell in love with it but will look for a more modern property to stay at.
