Reviewed 13 October 2013

beautiful property. have been coming here for years and finally may end up purchasing. depends on availability of specific units. most of the people here are owners and have seen them often. while this property is Hilton Club, not many, if any of the people i spoke to opt to trade. all the owners actually come very year and would not dream of clubing their week. 1 week by the way is not enough. you need at least 2 weeks to be able to soak it all in. the island is amazing as are most of the resturants....great, quiet place. very relaxing.

The Best!
Went with friends to Tortuga Beach Club the week of Sept. 13th! Beautiful resort, spacious rooms (top unit) and wonderful people!
We choose to travel at this time of the year even though my friends have 2 school age children. Being they were the only children at the resort they still went out of their way to offer the girls daily crafts to do! Now tell me how can you beat that? Also, a daily lunch menu if you so choose!
This resort definately caters to their guests ! We could not ask for more.
Everything in the unit is well cared for and looks new! The property is just beautiful!
We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

We come every year in September, myself for the past 17 years, my husband since the 80's. It's like catching up with the neighbors for one week every year. It is a blast. I will never tire of this place, it is so beautiful. I wish everyone could experience this place. It is very quiet in September with kids back in school. Restaurant service is superb because they are so happy for the business. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. I have no complaints and never will. Every year we go there are upgrades to the rooms, it's like a new home each time.

Tortuga Beach Club is the closest thing to Paradise you will find in the US. The grounds are keep in emaculate shape. The flowers, trees and plantings are beautiful. The pool and hot tub are great. And the pool chairs and loungers appear to have just been replaced, so they are in great condition. The drive around the complex has pavers, which is a huge advantage over other resorts with the shell and gravel drives that have dust flying all over the place. The management team is the most responsive of any resort we have stayed at. And they actually care about renters as much as their owners. A unique quality, but it is another aspect that sets Tortuga Beach Club apart from other resorts. The interior of the units are well maintained and it appears they have been recently updated with new living room, dining room furniture along with a new kitchen. If not, they are in excellent condition. There is volleyball on the grounds with shuffle board, tennis, pickle ball and ping pong in the clubhouse. And we have come to find out they have golf membership at the Dunes Golf and Tennis Complex, where all you pay is cart fee. This is a huge deal for us, since we love to play golf, especially at the Dunes which is a wonderful course. They have wireless internet that actually works well, something that can be hit and miss on Sanibel Island. There is an activities director on site that has activities for the kids - crafts, beach nature walks, swimming, etc. The activities person also barbeques lunches for purchase, prepares island drinks for purchase and there are many many more amenities that no other resort has on Sanibel. We will never rent at any other place when we come back to the island again. We have been coming since 1985 and staying at various resorts but Tortuga Beach Club by far is the BEST resort on the island hands down.

Room Tip: 2nd floor units have an incredible view of the ocean off a master bedroom balcony. 1st floor units...

The unit furniture and decor appeared to be new, very high quality and perfect for a beach resort, the grounds and pool were impeccable. There is maintenance personnel on site 7 days a week. There is an activities director on site and provides an array of activities with lunches.

I was surprised that the rooms do not include a safe. Since I conduct business during my travels, I am used to being able to lock up my computer when not in the room. With that exception, the location, rooms and grounds are very nice.

Room Tip: The units are 2 stories. The bottom units have the living area and master suite on the lower floor...

This resort is a gem, especially for families. Affordable lunches cooked informally on the grill, happy hours for donations, great activities program for kids and adults alike, just steps from the beach. Definitely one of the best hot tubs on Sanibel. Great tennis courts and now offering pickle ball. This is a place where you can really unwind, meet other vacationers or maintain your privacy as the mood hits. Lots of games, puzzles and books to borrow for evening fun or the rare rainy day. Kitchen and furnishings upscale yet casual.

Room Tip: Rooms with 2 king bedrooms are great for multi generational families.
