“Well-kept, clean property”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

This was a very well-maintained property. The condo has two screened-in porches so you can leave the patio doors open all the time. Everything was very clean and pleasant. The beach is a short walk from any of the buildings. The pool is heated and screened in. Grounds are nicely-landscaped. Reserving and checking in was easy and the office staff was friendly and helpful. The property is a short walk, bicycle ride or drive to the main commercial area. Overall the island was quiet and low-key, perfect for a family vacation. Would definitely stay at this property again.

Absolutely loved our stay in Unit J1! Unit was clean, well laid out, and with nice amenities. Washer/dryer, free wifi, cable in 3 rooms, dishwasher and disposal. Unit is located with MBR lanai facing the pool. The location of the property is nicely out of the Periwinkle traffic and easy access to on/off island activities. Beach was beautiful and staff was helpful. 5*!

We rented a 2bedroom unit at the sanibel arms west for a 4 day getaway. We rented unit I4 which is a 1st floor unit facing the pool. We were very happy with the accomodations. While the I building is farthest from the beach, it is only a 5 min walk (with kids). If you are pool people, its a great location. You will hear noise from the pool though. The unit was beautifully decorated with a renovated kitchen with everything you could want. The TVs were all new and great. We especially enjoyed the spacious screened lanai. Washer/dryer a plus as well. My only complaint with the unit would be that the sheets, pillows, and mattresses could use to be upgraded. Because of the location, there was also a bit of traffic noise in the bedrooms. The resort is great. Beach chairs and beach toys were available for sharing. Wish the umbrellas would have been complimentary instead of for rent. The pool is screened in, but plenty of sunshine comes through and it is very warm. The only thing lacking at this resort is a fitness center.

We spent one week at Sanibel Arms West. They are located beachfront, on the quieter East Gulf drive. You are very close to restaurants and shops, and can walk to the Lighthouse. We found lots of shells on the beach! All units have free wifi. We loved the ocean view from our screened lanai. Our unit which was very clean, had two bedrooms, 2 baths,a living room and dining room area and a small well equipped kitchen. There is a nice heated and screened in pool and a business center if you need a printer. There are tennis courts and a shuffleboard area available across the street. The grounds are very nicely landscaped. Beach chairs are provided for your use. There is even an area where you can wash your shells as you leave the beach. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. They have bike available to rent at the office. All in all, a great find.We would definitely stay here again!

This is the place to relax and unwind. Sanibel Island steps you back to a sweet slow paced vacation. totally refreshing. Walk the beach from before sun up to after sun down. The dolphins are out to entertain and make you smile.

Room Tip: You can never beat the ocean front. Go for it!

We have stayed in several different units at Sanibel Arms West over the years and wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to stay there. The units all have free wifi, many units have been remodeled and updated and the heated and screened-in pool is wonderful! The location of the property is perfect! Walking distance to the lighthouse via the beach, biking distance to shopping, ice cream and many restaurants.
There are really nice chairs to use at the beach and the furniture at the pool is newer and comfortable...there are always plenty of chaise loungers. The sun deck has a wonderful view of the beach and gulf waters.
This most recent stay, the kitchen sink in our unit was clogged, but the maintenance staff handled it quickly and efficiently. Would definitely stay here again!

What a great week spent in our beachfront Sanibel Arms West condo! The staff was friendly and very helpful and accommodating. The grounds were well manicured. Our condo wasn't anything fancy but we didn't care, we were barely there! So much to do on Sanibel, Captiva, and in Ft Myers. Restaurants and bars with live music were so fun, beach was beautiful with tons of interesting shells, water was a clean and clear blue/green. Rent a bike and explore. Very safe island!
