We just returned from our first stay at Sanibel Moorings. We had an gulf-front view in a 3-bedroom suite. View was perfect, as was the complex's botanical gardens. Such a lovely setting. Our rental condo was well-laid out and suited our party of five (hailing from Cleveland, Akron and Orlando) perfectly size-wise. Great kitchen area, although we did struggle a... More

I never write reviews...good or bad, but had to this time! I just spent one week of the best Florida relaxing times I ever had. The room was great. The staff were happy and couldn't do enough for us. Sanibel is the ideal Florida atmosphere. We stayed in a two bedroom condo that was oh so Florida. Fully equipped and... More

This is a gorgeous area of Sanibel and the condos are well-maintained and the gardens and surroundings are a pleasure to view each day but if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing area, this isn't for you. I'm sure it's not always this busy here but there are a lot of families and people walking around at all times... More

We stayed at Sanibel Moorings from June 2-10. Prior to arriving I was a little apprehensive as to whether Sanibel Moorings would live up to their website's description. I am happy to report that my expectations were exceeded. Our unit was very clean and looked exactly like what I viewed on their website. The amenities in the room were just... More

We stayed for 5 nights 6/8-6/12 in Unit #732. This was our second visit to the property and we absolutely loved it! We had a gulf view from our balcony and it was so nice to be able to see beach conditions before hauling all your stuff out there. The condo was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything we... More

My wife and I recently renewed our vows on the beach at Sanibel Moorings and I could not have asked for anything better. The scenery was amazing, the value could not be beat, and the service manager, Kari, went above and beyond. She made everything so special. She also took some great pictures. They even had a champagne toast for... More

I started coming to Sanibel Island and the Moorings with my parents and sister when I was 13 every summer. Now I come with my husband and daughters. We have been 4 times over the last 20 years and plan to up that number considerably over the years to come! Sanibel is such a beautiful place and the Moorings fit... More

This was my second stay at this property, and although they were several years apart it was just as clean, beautiful, and quiet as I remember. I prefer to stay dockside as I don't mind walking across the street to the beach. Docks have recently been refurbished and are very nice. Pools and laundry facilities as well as other amenities...
