We selected Sanibel Moorings for our weekend getaway (without the kids) based on the many many positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Surprisingly the property itself was as nice, if not nicer, than we expected. The reviews I read raved about this location and were very accurate. We arrived early Friday afternoon and our room was already prepared. The unit had... More

This our third straight year coming to Sanibel Moorings and I cannot say enough about the place. Coming from 38 degree weather, it was paradise! Rooms are fantastic, we love dockside #1632 and spend so much time on the lanai or sitting by the canal ( though the neighbors were noisier this year and we had a smoker below us... More

The accommodations were excellent. Our condo on the dockside was perfectly located for a fishing trip pick up. The staff was very friendly and informative. For a stay on Sanibel Island I would suggest a rental from Sanibel Moorings. I hope my family is blessed enough for a return trip sooner rather than later. The beach was great as always... More

Family with kids 11 and 7 had a fabulous time. The water was warm and calm. Kids could swim and explore. Glad umbrella and chairs were available. They enjoyed the pool. Fabulous time. Next time will stay on beach side of property. Definitely went to beac more than the canal.

Best feature is easy access to nicest beach on the island. Free and easy-to-access chairs and umbrellas. Well-equipped kitchen, screened porch and balcony. Condo not luxurious but comfortable. Towels for rent at front desk are somehow water-resistant; don't forget to bring your own. Good, free wifi.

We stayed in a different unit this time, 342. It was adequate but not as enjoyable as staying in 732 last year. The condo finishings were not nearly as nice. In this unit, there is shag carpet (seriously?!) and some of the furnishings are a bit dated. The dining room table/ chairs are also way too large and take up... More

Extremely easy to find if it is your first time on Sanibel Island. Take the main entry road until it ends and then just to the left a bit. No matter what area you stay at here, you get some type of water view. Has it's own private entry to the beach. The suites are spacious and clean and the... More

These units are loaded with every amenity, including full kitchens and all utensils. The highlights are: beautifully manicured gardens, easy access to the beach and the channel, spotless rooms, free beach chairs, umbrellas and kayaks, warm and helpful staff, two pools to choose from. What a great stay!

We have stayed at the Sanibel Moorings twice. Our first visit was in the botanical section and our most recent was Oceanside. Both units were great. They are comfortably situated, clean and pleasantly decorated. We are a family of four and enjoy the coziness of the condos. The units can sleep 6 comfortably if one doesn't mind sleeping on a...

Sanibel Moorings is a botanical dream and the views are spectacular. The room was roomy and quiet. They provide beach chairs, umbrellas and buckets so you can leave some of your stuff at home. They have free dvd's to checkout as well as free use of kayaks for navigating the canals.
