We had a low key relaxing week here. Didn't rent a car. Used the free bikes to go everywhere we needed. Restaurants are an easy bike away as is the grocery store. We used the grill at the hotel to cook and eat on the beach one night. Beach is directly in front and shelling was great. Great walking and... More

Stayed at Song of the Sea from June 4-June 8th. We were very pleased with the resort itself. It's a smaller, intimate resort and you get the feeling you're the only one there, even though they were totally booked. The room was very clean, a little worn, but totally comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable giving us both a great... More

This hotel, located directly on the beach on Sanibel island has a west Indies vibe that most travelers will find quaint. I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago, and I can tell you that the décor and furnishings have not changed - only a little more worn and tired looking. The daily breakfast buffet is delicious and well... More

If you love to swim in a calm ocean and collect beautiful sea shells, this is the place for you! Relaxed, very comfortable, and has everything you need for a stress-free vacation. Although it is a tad expensive, the kitchenette, free breakfast, free beach chairs/umbrellas, and free bicycle use saved us enough each day to make it work. The screened-in... More

First time there, the staff were so very friendly the entire time, big bonus! Included was a great continental breakfast, bikes, kayaks, umbrellas, shuffle board, pool, and paddleboards.We were there off season, beginning of June so it wasn't too busy. My only regret is not paying more for an ocean view, extra money but if I had made the reservation........ More

We loved the screened in porches, small kitchenette and terrific beach. Susie, who set up, stocked, cleaned and sometimes even served the continental breakfast each morning was a gem.
