“Home away from home”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Resort was fabulous! Extremely clean, everyone, including guests, are friendly. The pool is perfect and a short walk out to the beach. There are gas grills for grilling, bike racks, covered garage, laundry in the rooms. The condos are truly a home away from home. Free golf is included for staying at this resort. We can't wait to go back!

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Tortuga Beach Club. We are not owners and this was our 1st time here. We loved it. It looks much better in person than the pictures on the web. The resort is beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are very spacious. We had a top floor unit, 122. The view was amazing from the master bedroom. We really liked the kitchen and living room makeover. The kitchen is very well equipped. The pool was perfect. My family also enjoyed many of the activites offered such as Kids Night Out, pool side ice cream, and drinks.
My only comments that keep me from giving this resort 5 stars are the bedding, comforter, and pillows we found to be outdated. These could be updated. Also, the board at the resort recently implemented a non smoking policy on the pool/spa grounds. However, this was not enforced. I even once saw a staff member talking to a person in a lounge chair next to the pool and this person never asked the person to move or put out the cigarette.
But overall a great stay and we would return. Thank you

Dear Scarlett,
Thank you so much for your review! It sounds like you had a good visit with us. The master beds are all being replaced this year. Bed comfort is one of the most difficult tasks we work to accomplish! Everyone has a different opinion about it, but we think the beds on order are going to make most people happy. As far as the actual bedding, we are most likely switching the master bedding to "triple-sheeting" which is in use by many better hotels now. We have it in four sample units and it includes a decorative scarf and pillows which everyone seems to love. We are also trying to find better bed linens and towels for our units. The bedding is scheduled for change this year too!

Regarding the smoking at the pool and that our team member didn't mention this to the guest - we will be speaking with our staff to clarify that the rule needs to be enforced. I appreciate your feedback regarding that. You are absolutely correct.

Thank you for your comments and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

Our family has been coming to Sanibel Island for 38 years. We have been staying at Tortuga Beach Club for 29 years. Staff members know you by name and the condo's are great! Now our children and grandchildren come. A wonderful pool area and of course the beach is the best! A great place to enjoy the beautiful island of Sanibel.

I have loved being at Tortuga Beach Club as guest. It's even better as an owner. The condos are spacious and well equipped. The land scaping is wonderful; it offers privacy as well as beautiful views. The staff is here to please. The Board maintains high standards. It makes coming here special. I plan to be here for many years to come.

Room Tip: All the condos are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. All have washers and dryers in the units. All have beauti...

The resort is right on the beach on beautiful Sanibel Island Florida. The grounds are landscaped beautifully, it is like someone takes away dead leaves at night because you never see any. The arts and crafts programs for the children are fun and always enjoyable, sign up for lunch, Kids night out, or enjoy frozen beverages in the afternoon poolside. There is always something going on. The management and staff are always there to help. My family has added two additional weeks since we started coming here 30 years ago and we keep coming back. It's out piece of paradise. Enjoy!

We have been coming to Sanibel Island for over 20 years and Tortuga is by far our favorite place to stay on the island. It is a smaller complex that offers the best stretch of uncrowned beach. The units have been updated again and are very large. The pool and spa are always in great condition and the grounds are kept up very well. The Kids activities are excellent and the staff is super friendly. Can't say enough good about Tortuga!

My wife and I have been coming to Tortuga Beach Club for 25 years and every visit gets better. The management and staff always find ways of improving the experience. It is clean, well maintained, and responsive to every need. If there is something amiss with your unit, even as simple as a burned out light bulb, they'll have someone there to take care of it immediately. All units are two-bedroom, two bath condos which sleep up to six (not really a hotel). The pool is immaculate. The beach is just a short stroll across the boardwalk. Sanibel is a great place to vacation, and Tortuga is fantastic for families. There are many grills if you want stay "home" and cook out, and the full kitchen offers that opportunity as well. If you want to eat out, there are restaurants aplenty. I have been coming to Sanibel for more than 50 years, and this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Building F has an elevator; others do not.
