Great place to stay on Sanibel. Stock up on complimentary breakfast, then sit back and relax on the beach or by the pool. Friendly, helpful staff always on hand for advice and good tips. Complimentary bikes to take out and explore the island. Close to shopping and excellent restaurants

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in November 2014 and are already considering a return trip. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, our room was clean, and our housekeeper attentive. We especially appreciated the free single-speed bikes that we used every day we were there, which allowed us to explore all the way... More

We stayed at the Song of the Sea in early November. Room was very nice and bigger than other hotels we have stayed in on Sanibel. The room had a full refrigerator, stove and microwave. It also had a screened in lanai. We stayed on the 2nd floor and left the door to the lanai open at night to get... More

Very nice small, old Florida style hotel with about 30 rooms right on a nice stretch of beach. Rooms are big and clean, beds are nice, bathrooms are nice, little kitchenette with full size refrigerator is very convenient for keeping snacks and drinks in your room.

I would rate this hotel 3.5 stars if that were a choice. I cannot give it 4 in its present condition. The staff is friendly. The room and bathroom were very clean. The sheets and towels were of high quality. The bed was comfortable. The sofa and chair in the living area were completely worn out and uncomfortable. There is... More

It might seem a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable. We picked shells on the beach just steps from our door. A nice little breakfast to wake up to each day. Cereal, waffles, Danish, juice, toast and bagels. Swim Ina nice pool or jump in the Gulf of Mexico. I will surely book this resort again. A sure... More

This location is so quiet and peaceful. Not luxurious, but comfortable and best of all, a very short walk to the beach. Used the pool and the jacuzzi, enjoyed both. The continental breakfast was basic, but the outdoor seating by the little pool was such a great way to start the day. Overall, had a great time, will return for... More

First time staying on Sanibel Island and couldn’t have been happier with the Song of the Seas. It’s not the fancy-resort, but clean, quaint, “old-Florida” style of vacationing. We had a one bedroom on the gulf. The unit had a screened-in porch, but since it was 92 each day, we did not use the porch (except to hang our clothes... More
