We stayed at the Colony Resort on our recent vacation to Sanibel (7/26-7/30). We had the one bedroom which worked out for our family of 4. There is a separate bedroom, living space, kitchen and bathroom. My only recommendation is to switch the layout of the bedroom and living space but that's my view. The bedroom is right when you walk in from the parking lot. So if your kids are napping/sleeping, it is hard going in and out of the room w/o making lots of noise. The kitchen was stocked with all the cups, plates, cooking supplies you will need. The oven and stove top works as well. The outside pool was on the small size and depth was from 3ft to almost 6ft. Since this is not a hotel, they don't provide daily housekeeping (but they do have daily bath towel replacements).
This resort is not beach front but easy 10-15 mins walk to the beach which wasn't too bad even for my 2 girls (aged 4 & 3). A BIG plus was that our room had beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas and a cart to lug all these to the beach. Very helpful with 2 toddlers and we took it to all the beaches we visited.
