What can I say? ?! Truly beautiful. When we arrived it was pouring down. . Not the best introduction to Florida! However... -ladies on reception were lovely and offered me a towel to dry myself! -villa was immaculate with beautiful decorations. -Shame we weren't there for longer! !

We stayed in room 0122, it had a wonderful gulf front view. The furnishings were newer and up to date, which we noticed through pictures online. The kitchen had more utensils than we thought there would be,which was great considering we drove from Ohio. Kids enjoyed the room, except our 14 month old kept trying to stick things into uncovered... More

We have recently returned from 10 night stay at sannibel moorings and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a dock side condo 1341 and it was top notch. It was clean,bright and airy and had everything you could possibly need. The view from our patio was amazing. We saw all sorts of wildlife in and around the canal including... More

This is our 3rd time staying at Sanibel Moorings. Each unit is individually owned so when reading the reviews keep that in mind. Some have been updated more recent than others. I rented unit 731 and was very happy. Beautiful kitchen, bathrooms updated and very clean ( I'm picky). The living room furniture I would say would be the next... More

This was our second time at Sanibel Moorings, and we went back because we loved it the first time. Perfect place, like at home. Beautiful gardens. As an older couple --no children-- we would have liked to have the opportunity to meet other vacationers in a social location within the premises, like a bar or something by the pool, for... More

We selected Sanibel Moorings for our recent visit to Sanibel because of the good ratings on Trip Advisor, and for the fact that it is dog friendly. My husband and I took our mother-in-law and our dog and her dog for four days and had a wonderful time. The room was spotless, although the kitchen was a tad small for... More

This is superb. I was working in the US when a friend recommended it as a place to stay when my family were over from the UK. Outstanding in every way. The condos are very well-appointed and just a stone's throw from the beach, where your chairs and umbrellas are provided. The pools keep the children amused and with lush... More

Our family stayed in unit 1131 for a week on 7/23. We loved every minute of our stay. When we arrived the ac was not working. I called the front desk and it was fixed within the hour! Wow! Pool was nice, small but just big enough for our kids (10,3,3). Beach access is close by and there were plenty... More

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
